Funny Crash Reports
When my computer locks up or a program crashes, sometimes I’m offered a crash report to fill out and send to the developer so that they can determine what went wrong—presumably to try to prevent it in the future. This usually happens at such an inopportune moment that my reports are often filled with vitriol. I hope nobdy in particular takes too much offense. After all, it sorta seems like I’m simply submitting them for another computer to read. Turns out that I’m not the only one who uses crash reports to get a little something off his chest. Photoshop user and apparently frustrated comedian Garrett Murray has turned his Photoshop CS4 crash reports into little works of comic art. Check out his Maniacal Rage blog for a new piece every few weeks—or whenever Photoshop crashes on him.
