    Has anyone looked at the icons under 'Shared' in the sidebar close up? If you have a windows computer on you network you may notice that it has a different icon than a mac. If you go into 'Get Info', click on the icon at the top, +c, open preview, +n, and look closely you will see on the screen of the 'windows' computer it reads:

    A fatal exception 8E has occurred at 6428:C8011E36 in VCB VMM (01) +
    88810136. The current application will be terminated.

     Press any key to terminate the current application.
     Press CTRL+ALT+DEL again to restart your computer. You will lose any unsaved information in all applications.

    Press any key to continue _

    A Leopard Easter Egg?

    It was noted when Leopard was in pre-release and has been bought up a number of times since.

    I just hope Windows 7 returns the favor with an iMac icon displaying a kernel panic.

    yeah, but there's no way Steve Ballzmer would do it... his business strategy is just to "stop the piracy in china so we can make $100million more in profits"

    what the hell kind of business strategy is that? the day apple starts doing activation is the day i drop my macbook pro off the top of a parking garage. :eek: (i got the idea from my physics professor who did it to prove that the acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s :) but it was only an old powerbook...now he has a MBP)

    EDIT: sorry for the totally random, rambling post...

    Does anyone know how to change this icon...the easy 'get info' then copy and paste a new icon doesn't work??
