    It doesn't matter what's the colour. A crash is a crash is a crash.

    True, red looks a bit drastic.

    May be a nice pastel:

    Perhaps it could also play some nice soothing music and tell you "not to worry".

    apple

    It is nice to have an apple. i don't have to worry about misspelled errors and ugly, bad designed errors. Apple users get a nice message in 8 different languages saying your computer is restarting...

    I am proud to say I have FUBAR'd systems in unique ways. Completely killed a MAC LC II back in the day (it's still in my closet) by turning it on, killed a Sun Solaris PC by turning up the volume on the keyboard, and killed a WinNT PC by compiling Pascal.

    One of my favourite ways to confuse a computer is to write a javascript loop to open 1000 new windows. Some systems completely crash. Some slow down but are recoverable, and some slow down so much that they are effectively dead and a hard restart is needed.

    Scary to think that a website might be able to do that.

    I low-level formatted a hard drive which remagnetizes the platters. It didn't work after that.
