    My computer just went crazy...


    I just connected my camera to my computer and at the moment I turned the cam on this is what my computer did:
    • -launched OpenOffice actually about 20 of them simultaneously.
      -Konsole was open at the moment and it was repeating the command given to it last.
      -When i tried to turn off kwrite (It was allso open at the moment this happened) It went off and popped up again after few seconds with the same file open I had edited last.
    It stopped by itself in time and everything is working now allright but I just thought to ask if anyone has any idea what just happened.

    You've found the "Spontaneously combust" easter egg. Congratulations!


    umm.. no really, I have no idea. Perhaps take a look at the output of dmesg?

    Actually did that allready (well at least as fast as I could. System was just so heavily loaded at the moment that it took some time to get anything done) didn't notice anything weird there.
