No Gold for Windows
The opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics were driven by over a hundred
media servers...one of which apparently failed. Thanks to some good eyesight,
IT savvy and the miracle of digital video recorders, we now have a recording
of a Blue Screen of Death
projected onto the ceiling of the Bird's Nest
stadium in Beijing.
The image, posted
in Gizmodo, prompted a debate over whether the crash was real or faked (like
the opening singer, apparently).
Is this real or just a put-on? And what kind of error was it? Claims, suppositions
and cold, hard facts welcome at [email protected].
