Kernel hackers wannabes or merely a case of self-neglect? Maintaining Windows
is a bit of a handful, which leaves less time for shaving. Brushing teeth
over scandisk.exe, taking a bath over defrag.exe, shaving over a long-reboot
(which includes a bloated Registry)... then comes the system crash
(pneumonia) and BSoD (period, as in the case of Gary and some other who have
good days and terrible days).
