I use the BSOD screen saver in Xscreensaver and it freaks a lot of people
out, although they seem to have some initial weird satisfaction in knowing
that the systems person's computer crashed... "uhoh! looks like a blue
screen!" (and then it flips to the next one) "oh... is that just your
screen saver?"

There are a couple of pages on the 'net devoted to the BSOD.


Last but not least, buy your own BSOD tshirt at:

(They have 95/98 BSODs, NT BSODs, 2k BSODs, the Guru Meditation and the
Mac Bomb, along with a couple of 404 errors).


At 11:22 on Oct 21, Rob Stevens combined all the right letters to say:

> Sysinternals (URL: http://www.sysinternals.com) has an amusig screen saver.
> It totally simulated the Win2k stop error screen, then boot sequence.
