Customize your fail

When Widows crashes, its known as the "Blue Screen Of Death" or BSOD.  Now, a program is available to customize the colors of this formerly blue-only screen.

This reminds me a bit of how they paint the slums bright colors in Rio to cover up the fact that they are in fact slums.  When programming effort is spent on painting over the blue screen of death, you might hear a distant funeral bell ringing.

Now, you might be thinking: oh wait, this can't be a BSOD if its not blue.  You would be wrong.  A black or beige screen can still do the job.
