April Fools Fun

April 7th, 2011 by Kawika Heftel

Well, I had some fun this April Fool’s.  I pulled off a successful prank for the first time in I-don’t-know-how-long, and possibly forever.  I’ve never been much good at pranks, as I have troubles being convincing, and troubles not giving it away.

Not this time (he he he).

I found a really awesome screensaver that mimics an OSX Kernel Panic.  For those of you who don’t know what this is, a Kernel Panic is the Mac equivalent of a Windows Blue Screen of Death.  This is where the computer crashes completely and needs to be manually powered off and rebooted.

Yeah.  So I installed it on the recording computer at the studio, late on the night of March 31st.  And waited for the fun to begin.

We had a recording session the next morning with a band.  Jessica was running it.

She rebooted the computer once and almost did a second time before she figured out what was going on :) .

It was pretty classic.  I must say, I felt quite proud of myself.  My only regret was not being there to see her reaction.

If you’re interested downloading the screensaver, it can be found here.

  1. Funny, Kawika. Problem with me doing this at our school is that no one would figure it out.

  2. Haha, that’s funny. They also have BSOD screensavers for both PC and Mac.
