+[[!meta title="EIEIO: 'Computer bought the farm'... Err, what?!"]]
+This is the error message for `EIEIO` (pronounce E-I-E-I-O). This error code is
+used for a variety of "hopeless" error conditions. Most probably you will
+encounter it when a translator crashes while you were trying to use a file
+that it serves.
+You can thus think of it as an equivalent of the "blue screen of the death" or
+"Oops"... except that it's just an error! It doesn't take your whole system
+away with it, only the particular operations that was going on.
