    Just a BSOD, not that bad

    I thought it was kind of funny.

    I think this is funny and sad at the same time. Users of Microsoft Windows have become so jaded by the Blue Screen of Death that they now need a new Red Screen of Death in order for them to actually pay attention to the fact that their operating system has had a catastrophic error.

    "Honey, something's wrong with the computer again!"
    -"Is it the blue screen? Just reboot it. It's fine."
    "No, it's red this time."
    -"Oh, well perhaps we should pay attention."

    Of course, this will only last until the "newness" of the RSOD wears off, then everyday users will ignore the core dumps and memory address lines and happily reset their computers once more, oblivious to any possibly corrupted data.

    For what he's charging for the software, the least he could do is to add a .wav file to go along with it just to "enhance the total XPerience"

    For the BSOD maybe a metallic grinding, a screech and then a crunch...


    For the RSOD the sound of mocking laughter.......

    I remember playing with my system sounds on my father's Apple PowerPC desktop oh so long ago. Whenever something would go wrong (which actually happened relatively rarely with that computer), the voice from Mortal Kombat (the one that said "Fight!" and "Finish him!") would say: "It's official: you suck."

    I've got Hal's voice with the line "I'm sorry, Dave, I can't do that" whenever there's an error in linux (I actually got that bit from someone on this forum). I don't hear it that much, though. I'll have to put it on windows

    That is a really great idea. Until I run into some problem I can not fix and continually hear that , then i would get pissed and rip my speakers out.
