Call a Blue Screen of Death on demand! It's more fun than it sounds
For those that use Windows, the famous Blue Screen of Death is an annoyance that plagues computers, causing error, frustration, and even data loss. They happened to me a lot whilst I was trying to configure my computer, and I thought I wonder who else I can annoy with one of these...
And thus the BSOD_Enabler was born!
After researching into it for a while, it turns out that there are a few different ways to cause a BSOD, unfortunately most of which are the reason a BSOD is there in the first place, which could potentially damage the target machine, something I didn't want! Then I stumbled upon this article, which shows that you can in fact raise a BSOD without causing any errors or damage to your computer.
Obviously there are many different ways, and probably far better ways of doing this, but I wanted something that was simple to use, fast, and could be done by anyone, no matter how technically illiterate. I decided to write it in C#, and use a windows console interface so the whole thing could be done with a few key presses.
Unfortunately I can't find the original source, or a copy of the executable. Once I find them, I'll update this post!
