I’m sure you guys know that I’m a sucker for a good error message. This one cracked me up this morning from Firefox.

This somehow took the sting out of losing a handful of tabs (research, too!) when my work computer rebooted on its own last night.

3) Explained the problem.

4) Told me how to fix it.

Most excellent.
