    Just thought I would share. I thought Mac's were perfect and didn't crash? :DSheesh, I want a refund! I have no idea what caused it.
    I was surfing the web and all of a sudden the screen went dim from the top down, then this message popped up:

    I restarted it and its seems to be fine. Is there a way in OSX to check system logs to see what happened?

    Hey, at least it's easier on the eyes than the blue screen of death.

    ...and in typical Apple fashion - gives you no information as to what the cause maybe - unlike a BSOD. :rolleyes:

    Oh, this is the fabled "kernel panic" I have been hearing about. I guess no OS is perfect, right?

    But at least his Mac is trying really hard to tell you what you should do. It's speaking coherently in four different languages even though it's panicked.
