Broken: Paris-Vegas display

Img_3340viGreg Osborn points us to this photo from his trip to Las Vegas in August 2001.

He writes, "Now appearing at the Paris: Windows error message! At least their fountain can't 'crash'.  :) "



[Reminiscent of the Windows 98 launch...]

How do you know it's a Windows error message? Looks like a standard messagebox to me. Has it ever occured to anyone that when a messagebox occurs in an app like this, it might just possibly be related to software not related to Windows? sigh...

Plus, does anyone still care? These types of broken pictures show up here once a week, practically.

Why don't they use the dual display capability that many systems have these days. The one display would be the one showing your regular windows desktop with the display application and any diagnostic messages, while the second display would be the "Slide Show", showing only the pictures. The second display should NEVER show any kind of error messages. At worst, it should just go blank.

I was on an airplane earlier this week. In the airport terminal I found the schedule screen--BSOD. Does that mean my plane crashed?
