Journalists from the INQUIRER, Hexus.net, Bit-Tech.net and the venerable Spodesabode.com watched the Windows crash in real time, and took digital photographs as a Lloyds Bank ATM suffered what was obviously a Windows crash.
Lloyds Bank is one of the so-called "Big Five" banks in the UK, and has massive capitalisation. It also has loads of funds too, we understand.
The branch of the bank, in the very famous Baker Street, W1 - home of Abbey National and Sherlock Holmes -- was inaccessible because ATMs don't have pointing devices to OK the error. That's probably all it would have taken...
But just down the road, Barclays seemed to run fine on a non-Windows based system.
The lads from hexus, bit-tech and spodesabode have all pictures of this odd phenomenon.
And they've all promised the INQ that the photos shall be forwarded on.
We wonder what the explanation is? µ
