    Maybe the big O was also responsible somehow for the example phone number in the first screen capture: "-1234567890"?

    A bee-sod like that is what, Windows XP? Windows 2000?. It certainly isn't anything in the 7/8/8.1/10/11 sequence. (The bee-sods in my Windows 11 aren't even blue...)

    I'm assuming the Oracle one is so that they can change you for the performance upgrade to get to 0...

    The centre ice logo is the Winnipeg Jets, which means the arena in question opened in 2004. So XP checks out.

    In my Windows 11 they are still blue... but with a sad smiley face, a QR code and a progress counter to collect info

  • (nodebb) in reply to Kleyguerth

    Yeah, I have the sadsmiley etc., but the background has always been green. Weird.

    Beta builds get different color.

    Oracle disk access looks like an ECG, just recovered from a flatline.

  • Nick (unregistered) in reply to Steve_The_Cynic

    If your BSoD is green, you’re on an insider build.

    A little googling suggests there’s a SysInternals tool that can be used to change the colour to whatever you like.

    I’m sure I remember a hack from the Windows XP days that allowed you to replace the BSoD background with any image you liked; I think I set up an LCARS screen showing a self-destruct countdown. However, that didn’t come up when I googled just now, so I might be remembering incorrectly.

    A negative Disk Write count... is an operation where the disk sends back bytes. So basically a disk read.

    If your BSoD is green, you’re on an insider build.

    Yeah, that would explain it. I am, indeed, on an insider build.

    Don't forget that after Sprint gobbled up Nextel, T-Mobile gobbled up Sprint. And AT&T consumed Alltel. So there should only be 3 elements in that list. Yay capitalism!

    Does anyone else think that Oracle is displaying an ECG on some of those displays?

  • (nodebb) in reply to enkorvaks

    They're just measuring the changes they're making to your monthly invoice.

    The Verizon thing is an interesting example of the diff btw tech and biz one can well imagine the following convo at Verizon Tech Guy: we need to fix this menu it looks stupid Biz Guy: is it affecting sales ? Tech Guy: no, not as far as I know Biz Guy: then it ISN'T A PROBLEM

  • MaxiTB (unregistered) in reply to Nick

    Don't forget the red screen for the boot manager :-)

    It is always funny to me, that the BSoD became so famous. Panics and Guru Medidations were a thing long before that and arguably even more common, but I guess back than usually more technical interested people used computers.

    @MaxiTB the Bluescreen managed to appear at a big presentation of windows, too. thats why its more known.

When i have nothing to do i prefer to relax and maybe play some casinos https://online-casino-canada.guru/privacy-policy/ you know.

    No. The BSOD is famous because, back in the days of Windows 3.x and Windows 95, it happened frequently. Almost everybody had one a couple of times a month.
