    Sounds like Lyle is getting a bit...testy

    I don't take personality tests exactly because I don't want official confirmation of such status.

    I don't get the joke in the last one. Whenever I take a personality test, I am always classified as a catastrophic failure.

    Getting called a "catastrophic failure" by a computer may just rank right up there with "the computer is calling me an invalid" complaints.

    LoL'd at the "catastrophic" error one... first time in a long time I have laughed at an Error'd.

    The catastrophic error one is great. It reminds me of another one from a while back. One of the IOCCC 1988 winners was a program that prints the lyrics to "The Twelve Days of Christmas". I compiled it on my DOS 5.something-or-other computer using QuickC and ran it. I got this:

    On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me
    Segmentation error: core dumped.

    Totally unexpected, obviously wrong, and yet somehow believable.

    "Catastrophic failure" describes most of the guys my stepdaughter dates.
