Blue Screen of Non-Death
The Blue Screen of Death is never a pretty sight, though my XP box usually just
hangs and dies without ever turning blue (reminds me how when the old Commodore
Amiga crashed, you'd get a blinking orange "Guru Meditation Error"
-- and with the Amiga you got these a lot!).
If you've managed to get your machine totally stabilized (tell us all how you
did that by writing me at [email protected])
and miss the Blue Screen, have I got a tool for you!
Microsoft has a "BlueScreen
of Death" screen saver that can fool even the savviest IT pro into
thinking that your machine has indeed rolled over and died. I wonder if I can
get a version for my Mac G4?
