  • Patch Lady – seen on a movie screen

    Speaking of old software still in use, last night when I was at the movie theater (watching Downton Abbey  loved the movie), the preview/preshow was playing when suddenly it froze.  And then the screen showed this error screen.  Which we geeks think is a vintage Windows 95 desktop.

    Given that movie theaters get movies digitally these days, its possible that this preshow screen is connected to the Internet.  Slightly freaky.
