Late night debugging

Never try to debug issues at night, because you’ll usually get more than you bargained for.

Haxe and Blackberry

So Haxe can apparently deploy to Blackberry devices. This is something that I might explore in the future, depending on how hard it is to port things to the platform.

How to crash your PC

WARNING: Do this at your own risk. It should also go without saying that you should not do this to anyone else’s PC.

NOTE: This will only work on a computer running the Microsoft Windows operating system.

If you want to crash your computer because you have nothing else better to do, then this is for you.

1. Close all of your programs, especially word processors, image editors, and coding IDEs.

2. Copy the code below into a blank text file. This code will rapidly open the Command Prompt upon launch until the computer soft locks.

@echo off
goto crash

3. Save the text file as a .bat file. The actual name doesn’t matter, call it “toaster.bat” if you want to.

4. Run the .bat file and watch your PC grind to a stop. You will need to force restart your PC if you want to continue using it.

Have fun!
