Vista provokes user synaptic collapse

Logic feedback loop brain bomb

Those of you with memories like elephants may recall the case of the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article which contained the following classic:

A Connection Manager Connection Does Not Connect After Being Disconnected

There was a rumour going around back then in 2003 that Microsoft had planted such error messages to subjugate humanity to its dark will by means of provoking a logic feedback loop synaptic collapse. Well, the black helicopter brigade may have been right, because here's a warning from Vista:

Vista error message: You do not have permission to view the current permission settings for Properties, but you can make permission changes

We think we know what it means, but, no, hold on a minute... can't... think... must shut down computer before it's too... ®

Bootnote

Thanks to David Hough for the tip-off. David is said to be "steadily recovering" from exposure to the Vista brain bomb after doctors prescribed a healthy dose of Linux.
