A Brief History of Error Messages
by Alex Martindale
with additional material by Kerry Burnout
Alex Martindale presents a tour of error messages from history, (hopefully) recreating some classic error messages on the original hardware in front of a live audience. This one featured a surprisingly reliable ZX Spectrum, a failed Windows ME installation, and a sadmac emulator.
