[10:00 AM] System Error -121? I'll Give You System Error -121!
by Staff

Bleu Rose Ltd. has announced a new version of their Mac OS error code translation utility, Black and Bleu. Black and Bleu Pro offers over 4,000 plain English explanations of the typically cryptic error codes generated by the Mac. The Pro version allows error code explanations to be exported and saved. According to Bleu Rose:

Black and Bleu/PRO(tm) is an application that lists 4,384 Macintosh OS error codes with Apple's cryptic explanation of each. Black & Bleu enhances Apple's explanation of these Mac OS error codes by providing less cryptic and more useful detailed explanations and remedies for many of these errors. It takes the mystery out of error codes with explanations in plain English. This is the most comprehensive list of Mac OS errors currently available anywhere.

The "PRO" form offers the same features as the Standard version but differs in one important way. The "PRO" version allows you to export the detailed explanations to a file. This feature allows Technical Professionals to pass the information on to others - something not permitted by the terms of the standard version. The software license reflects this ability as well.

Some other features of Black & Bleu/PRO(tm) are:

  • Error code listing by group, number and name
  • Full text search for words, phrases or numbers
  • Sad Mac codes and explanations * Annotate our explanations with your own text
  • Entry of error codes in hexadecimal numbers
  • Hexadecimal error codes
  • Free analysis of errors that don't have a detailed explanation
  • Simple to use interface

Black and Blue Pro is available as an electronic download for US$129, and in CD form for US$141. You can find more information at the Bleu Rose Ltd. web site.
