Windows 98 Crash
I just saw the funniest thing on MTV. I was watching "Becoming" MTV's show where they take fans and help them re-create videos by their favorite artists. On "Becoming: Nelly" the lucky kid goes on a radio show on 102.7 KISS FM to be interviewed. The DJ is talking to him on the air, they are separated by a table with a few computer monitors on it, the camera switches to a perspective behind the DJ, revealing the unmistakeable visage of the Windows 98 blue screen of death on the computer right in front of him lol.

We had couple of years ago in Finland same kind of situation.
Finnish TV-broadcaster MTV3 (no, not the Music TV) used to broadcast on afternoons those automated (written-text) news. It had two different frames, bigger with news and smaller with upcoming programs. Once I noticed that the smaller frame has 505 Internal Server Error -message on - it got to be recorded

I think thats pretty funny. I haven't got a good laugh in a while. And especially probally a lot of people saw that because MTV Is national.

Where my dad is currently working recently sent around a notice that they've been getting hit hard by Blue Screens of Death and that the IT department believes they've fixed them all, but if any of the employees see them to notify the IT department immediately. And this isn't what you want to hear from the place he's working at....It's a security clearance only place and that was an internal document so I don't want to say where he's working.
