Now are these going to be used as error messages or warnings? If they are then theres no one better than HAL 9000 from 2001, he has some great lines in the context of a computer program:


"Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye."

"Everything's running smoothly."

"I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this before."

"I think you've improved a great deal."

"Just a moment. Just a moment."

"It can only be attributable to human error."


Theres a load of them HERE in audio form.



And another classic:


“Good. For a moment there, I thought we were in trouble.” Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid



Maybe Obi-Wan: "Use the force Luke!"


"You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" is my favourite but how you would find a use for that I dont know!!! :)

# Operator! Give me the number for 911!


# Oh, so they have internet on computers now!


# Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

They're just going to be used in the 'caption' area of the groupbox on the new 'Ez-Mode Picker' screen.


Almost like a quote of day type thing.


I already have the 'blow the bloody doors off' one in my list :)


You could also use Micheal Caines from Zulu: "Dont point that bloody spear at me!"(Mind you, I think I may have made that one up!! :teehee: )


Ah right, sounds like it could be fun.


How about something from Marvin the paranoid android?


"Why stop now just when i'm hating it?"


"Incredible... it's even worse than I thought it would be."


" Freeze? I'm a robot. I'm not a refrigerator."

Red Dwarf...


"Don't give me any of that 'Star Trek' crap. It's too early in the morning."

"Don't fish swim south for the winter?"

"No, that's birds, sir."

"Birds swim south for the winter? How do they breath?"

Good ones will be added to something stupid in the up and coming new release. :)


Perhaps a "tagline" text file? Y'know, the taglines we used to add to FidoNet messages as padding when the XModem protocol randomly chopped off pieces from the bottom of our messages? I used to use a tagline program with my mail tosser (Spot) years ago. There's probably shitloads of them on AmiNet.

Dr.Cox: They hate you Bob. They hate from the bottom of your hooves to the top of your pitchfork. They hate you. By God, they hate you good.
