I just came accross this today:
Once upon a time there was a young man who wanted to become a great writer.
“I want to write things the whole world will read,” he declared. “Stuff that will elicit strong emotions from people in every walk of life. I want my writing to make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger.”
He now lives happily ever after in Redmond, Washington, writing error messages for Microsoft.
I think this is the guy behind “The Blue Screen of Death”.
