    Sent to me by a co-worker: Forgive the large size...tried to make them smaller but they loose clarity.

    I've seen that before, but a year ago. If it really was taken this month, I guess this isn't the first time Windows has crashed for them. I've also seen the BSD on a McDonalds drive thru screen earlier this summer, it was pretty funny.

    "Forsdicks?" That's almost as funny as the ad itself!

    I got it from a friend a long while ago, so I wouldn't be surprised or worried if it was, it's still funny. My editing skills are much worse, anyway!

    The BMW ad is completely ironic, now, given that their piece of garbage iDrive system in the 7 series uses Windows CE.

    Well, yes, and no. I rememebr this from a couple years ago.

    The picture is real - not edited. The billboard is real, but vandalized. Vandals borrowed the middle finger tip from the index finger. Notice the seam on the middle finger, the interruption of the red billboard above the inex finger, and the fact that the index finger has no outline at the termination.

    If memory serves, this was on the BQE in NYC.

    Once apple gains market share maybe we will start seeing kernel panics rampant on the streets of NYC.

    Free speech is your right to scream Times Square in a crowded kernel panic. :rolleyes:
