Reading the Blue Screen of Death

Mac users have always triumphed at the site of a blue screen of death (BSOD). It was a metaphorical f you to all those Windows users out there. Everyone knows that the bsod means that something horrendous has occurred with Windows, but what does it really mean?

Recently a friend received one. It seems to occur less frequently, maybe because Windows 7 is better at hiding them. haha. Regardless I was looking into them and usually they have some type of heading error, but in this case there was none and just a Stop. So I google’d for the specific .sys file and there was nothing and then I stumbled upon this site. It seems to give a good explanation for all the error codes.
