THE MILLING masses in Times Square, New York, were given the chance to see one of the world's largest Windows crashes over the weekend.

Adam Gaffin happened to be in the square and snapped a picture of the message for posterity. It can be seen here.

Apparently if you look at the icon on the title bar it seems that the whole thing was caused by a Direct X error. µ
