  X-Microsoft: Just say perl -MIO::Socket -e 'IO::Socket::INET
      ->send("Die sucker", MSG_OOB)'

[This joke is very funny if you get it.  Trust me.

 For the non-perl, non-microsoft-networking-bug-literate among us,
 this is a perl one-liner that exploits a bug in the Windows (NT or
 95) networking code.  If is running NT this would
 crash it (a syndrome described in the bug report as ``the blue window
 of death'').

 Until the middle of last year, was running UNIX,
 which was faster, if somewhat embarassing for Microsoft.
