^ Thank you! Whaouh, brain is really stunning because I read all words of your wallpaper and could not find the typo. My brain certainly reconstructed the word by itself so it's understandable...

You might like this wallpaper then. I've got a whole stack of Windows wallpapers.

At a datacentre I previously worked at, one of the UNIX guys thought it'd be fun to have the BSOD screen saver on one of our UNIX boxes. It was a workstation class box with graphics and a screen but it was doing systems management stuff so was kind of important. All was well until one of the backup tape changing monkeys was doing his rounds one night, saw the BSOD and helpfully power-cycled it. Suffice to say, that screensaver was never used again.


The only time I laughed more was when a cleaner came into the datacentre one evening, plugged her hoover into the power socket on the bottom of a 4 foot high blue pillar near the door and then pressed the big red button on the top of the pillar. I'm not sure who thought it was a good idea to put a power socket on the bottom of the Emergency Power Off pillar, but as anyone who has ever been in a datacentre when the power goes out can attest, after a loud BANG, the silence is deafening!


Anyway, that's enough anecdotes for one Sunday afternoon. I hope they entertained.


Yes, it would have been better not having mission critical systems on a workstation in the first place, but that's the kind of place it was.

No, it's not a tall tale, I was there -- on shift mounting tapes for the mainframe -- when it happened. Yes, a very long time ago)
