Prank blue screen of death (SO REALISTIC!!!)

You were playing your favorite video game (which your mom and dad told you specifically not to), when all of a sudden, oh noooes! A BSoD (blue screen of death) appears, you panic, not knowing big boi words. It restarts, then says get fooled! You've been gnomed!

Funny BSOD prank. I tried it out with my dad, he totally got fooled XD. Kinda hard to prank people since it's on a webpage (for the people who know nothing about computers, it may be easy), but nevertheless fun. Looks sooo authentic, I even put real errors in there (yes, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_GREATER_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO is an error)! Hope you like it (hint: works best in full screen) :)

Uh that’s not an error. This is a real error:

@CodeLongAndPros yes, it's what a windows 7 bluescreen of death looks like. The error you're showing is a kernel panic, which only accours on Unix(-like) systems. This is a bluescreen of death:

@CodeLongAndPros additionally, the error shown actually exists: https://youtube.com/watch?v=zjx2cVpnXe8. Linux is better but not the only thing that exists.

CodeLongAndPros

@behavingEffort Uh I mean a kernel panic is a better error than “Oops, something went wrong”

Baconman321

@CodeLongAndPros Yes, I can make a more complicated error page, but usually windows makes a more simplified (I kind of imitated their BSoD layout) Blue screen of death.

CodeLongAndPros

@Baconman321 But anyone would know that a STOP error is just Micro$ofts way of saying “we made this bad”. I’ve used Linux for a year and only got a panic once, when I pulled the hard disk out during boot.

Baconman321

@CodeLongAndPros Ok, just making a more simplified BSoD. Imagine making an actual kernel panic page, I'd drive those computer noobs crazy XD.

CodeLongAndPros

@Baconman321 Nah, just use a sysrq trigger in proc.

Baconman321
CodeLongAndPros

@Baconman321 echo c | sudo tee /proc/sysrq-trigger

Baconman321

@CodeLongAndPros I haven't really used linux, if I ever get a computer, I'm definitely gonna dual boot it with linux. Thanks, but I don't know much about linux, srry.

CodeLongAndPros

@Baconman321 Well I mean just !w magic sysrq key and !w kernel panic

Baconman321

@CodeLongAndPros I know nothing about sysrq key and kernels sorry.

CodeLongAndPros

@Baconman321 yeah well bang (!)w in DuckDuckGo searches Wikipedia for it.

So https://duckduckgo.com?q=!w%20magic%20sysrq%20key will show the sysrq Wikipedia page.

Baconman321

@CodeLongAndPros Yeah, thanks. I already got the basic concept. I'll have to go deeper into it if I need to.

CodeLongAndPros

@Baconman321 Also the boot screen is not great.

Baconman321

@CodeLongAndPros yeah, sorry. I couldn't think of much more. I think that'll be my work tonight.
