2007-10-12 The Register: Windows update brings down ...
The Register: Windows update brings down TV newscast. This reminds me of the local infochannel we saw on our 2007 wintersport holiday: every morning at 09:00 the infochannel changed to a screen of Windows 2000 rebooting and starting up and starting Scala Infochannel for images, short clips, commercials, snow heights and weather reports. Lots of possibilities for error-message like this screengrab from 2002 showing that the local cable channel in Utrecht did something likewise. From what I hear, it is possible to run software like Scala on a secondary video adapter that will just go black or freeze when the system fails, and not show the Windows error popups.
