From what it sounds like, I would cry .
I thought is was kind of funny way after the system crashed. It taught me to always keep a backup of my data incase it happened again. It brings back memories!
Not very terrifying .. unless you were in a place that they might not think it was funny. Not quite the Sad Mac, but it lead to one.
In the era of the mid 1990's when you had to prove your computer .. was really a computer, to the airport security people.
I pulled it out, lifted the lid, and spun it around. I knew something was wrong when I saw the look on the persons face change.
Not terrifying, but frustrating or disheartening, especially when you've been waiting for that new RAM to arrive, pop it in and.....
Though the QuadraAV sound was hilarious!
Yes, totally agree with you.
What's more hilarious is the Pokemon rest sound that comes up afterwards. LOL'd so hard. I love the stash of sounds there.
I'm pretty sure Google took a hint from Sad Mac for the Aw, Snap! guy.
My new ringtone.
Gmail is a little more disturbing.
I don't think the Sad Mac was more terrifying than this:
It could mean as little as you forgot to insert the system floppy before powering the Mac up.
I got that on my MacBook Pro a few months ago. It definitely freaked me out.
I miss the old sad mac. And the bomb....
The only time I was really sad to get the sad mac was after adding some ram to my old LCIII. I installed it wrong thankfully!
Well, I, for one, am TERRIFIED!!
I'm locking my doors and windows as we speak!!
Maybe too late for @G4scott but never too late for Apple collectors … two days ago, OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks) presented the following gem in response to a kernel panic of a remote controlled bleeding edge version of PC-BSD:
Amazing! So it doesn't display that black popup with different languages anymore? Used to get that in my 06 C2D MBP.
Ah, the good old days. That and the bomb.
Nothing quite like having to go into MacsBug afterward and see if it was fixable.
Now there's an "Easter Egg"
That was how a Mac appeared with a crash of Mac OS X (Lion or earlier). Archived by Apple:
OS X: About kernel panics – Apple Support
The screenshot above was of a Mac working normally, not crashing; I used Screen Sharing (a core service app) to remotely control a nearby notebook with PC-BSD, and PC-BSD crashed.
If it's an easter egg, I haven't yet found its origin. It may be in, or associated with, a VNC server that's on or with PC-BSD. But I reckon, the easter egg is more likely in something associated with Screen Sharing (an Apple VNC client) …
Oh, excitement over. Not an easter egg, almost certainly just a coincidence: the sad Mac part of the BSOD hack on version 5.29 of XScreenSaver was probably the last thing on screen before my first ever crash of a bleeding edge version of PC-BSD a kernel panic screensaver. Credit to LooX and tigersharke in IRC for PC-BSD for the hint.
There is a warning from XScreenSaver 5.29, about its outdated nature, whenever I log in to the Lumina desktop environment. It's feasible that the BSOD saver was contributory to the panic but somehow I doubt it. Screen Sharing aside, what I saw on the display of the panicked notebook suggested an issue involving swap space …
In simple terms: I was gullible, gullible, and then gullible!
Ahhh...I still remember my very first time. Accidentally baked my very first apple product on the dash of my car. Evidently Johnny designed these things with a British summer in mind.
Unfortunately I have never been able to shake the associated trauma...what with having the serial number permanently branded on my hand.
Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.
All terror gone
Cute screen saver!
Thanks for wasting the rest of my evening. These are amazing.
Sad Mac was terrifying to teenage me because it possibly meant I had to give the computer to my Dad to take in for repair, which would mean me worrying that the computer repair guy was going to find my porn stash and rat me out.
I always thought he was kinda cute.
In a very melancholy sort of way...
Did it display a crash sound? Now it's crashing a remote mac/pc while my mac's connected!
Ok.... i never got both screens. Mostly because it's crash proof('cept for this incident when i was shutting down a vbox machine and the shutdown was too much for my mac.) And also i keep my messages in offline always.
And yes, the Powerbooks, PCI macs, Performa Power macs, and Power mac 6100 sad macs were atrocious
