A gallery of goofy error messages

Loss imminent!

"Saw this while working on an AS400 with single level memory store. All of disk (permanant addresses) and all of memory (temporary addresses) would be available for a program to use. When the temporary addess space filled up, it could cause main storage to be overwritten. To combat this, a threshold was set to send a message when this threshold was approaching. After uploading a PTF service pack, I'd get that chilling message."
