I remember buying a used drum scanner, that had a MeSs-DOS clone for a 
controller. Things weren’t working. The computer didn’t even have a monitor 
card, but was supposed to auto-boot from the Optronics floppy.

I finally borrowed a monitor card and hooked it up to see if I could figure out 
what was going on. Upon re-starting, the screen said:

    No keyboard detected. Press any key to continue.

And that actually had nothing to do with the problem, really! The memory backup 
battery had gone kaput, so the computer couldn’t remember that it was supposed 
to be headless. It was a stupid custom battery that was no longer available, so 
I wired up an AA holder and put some lithium AAs in there.

Problem solved! But with no help from the cretin who authored that error
