Hard Drive is referred to as "Da Turnpike on Da Way to Da Shore"

Instead of an error message, "You Ain't Gonna Friggin' Believe Dis'" pops up.

Something tells me this was written by a New Yorker. Any good New Jerseyan knows that the Turnpike doesn't go to the shore -- but the Garden State Parkway does!

Eh, I've lived here all my life, so I should know a thing or two about this state.

I *could* go into how no one in NJ really talks in the manner described and how it'* all a product of people watching too much of The Sopranos but hey... even I understand the value of a good joke. :P
