A Non Warning, from Windows XP

I feel sorry for the programmer who was forced, no doubt after endless emails, meetings, focus-groups and think-tanks to check this obscure non-warning warning message into the Windows source tree...

Warning message after adding more RAM, at last

"The amount of physical memory in your system has increased. This typically does NOT indicate a hardware failure. Contact your Help Desk if you did not personally change your system's physical memory configuration."

Why didn't they say "Congratulations!" or "Good news" or "Ahhhh! thanks for feeding me those yummy ram chips!" or best of all:

"Well, how about that! The tight bastards in IT must've approved that RAM upgrade request we noticed you writing in MS-Word, all those months ago.

"Now let's see if we can get the cowards to consider upgrading the browser to IE 7."
