Too funny!  I was lucky, I went straight for R12 to R14 because my employer at the time didn't want to upgrade every year and settled on the even numbered releases. :smileyvery-happy:

:-D

I actually used R13 for a little while, my senior year of high school. But, my first production release was 2000, so I completely missed R14.

 

Although, up until 4 years ago, we had an old DOS machine with R12 still on it. It was pretty wild. My boss was like, uh, do you know how to get files and stuff off of a machine that old? Luckily I'd spend enough time on R10 and 12 in high school that I could... after some serious thinking. Heh.

Hey, where's that Kudos button?!

 

I had more of those, like

"Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair"

"User Error—Replace User"

 

Thought I had them here, but can't find them.

 

 

Regarding the blank '!' error, my IT guy says it's related to the video card.  Not sure why it started going off every time I close C3D since last week.  Maybe the program updated its requirements online somehow?

Cute.

 

During one of my programming classes, I made this Map Cleanup dialog box for giggles.

I've got it a couple of times.  Wins the prize for most informative error?


LOL....I used to see this a lot on SolidWorks....this and a tiny red box. I had a complete folder full of these types of errors and used them as my screen saver.
