Amid the table football, beanbags and overpriced coffee, London's silicon roundabout also plays host to that most modern of afflictions: the BSOD bork. Spotted off the Old Street roundabout by Register reader Sam Dickinson, the digital signage on display in this branch of Wagamama is somewhat at odds with the high-tech …

    MS is not the only culprit...

    Sadly, each of them displayed the same window: "Android is waiting to start".

    "The device driver is stuck in an infinite loop"

    So Windows has solved the halting problem? Seems rather bold to be making such an assertion.

        Yeah, I kind of miss The IT Crowd... Particularly this episode was hilarious.

          "Are we not men?" is my favourite all time episode. :D

          Come to think about it though, it is difficult to pick between that and "The Final Countdown".

            "The Work Outing" is probably the most hilarious thing I have ever watched on TV.
