OK, so i was playing around with fbgrab and tried it out in a gnome-terminal :) it ran fine etc etc so i opened the image up in gimp and look what I found!!

CLICK HERE FOR THE IMAGE

I was kinda suprised to see the "NOTHING BEATS OUR RACKS" and the Intel logo (I have an AMD). I had no browser windows open, no adverts, no nothing apart from the terminal I ran fbgrab in. I checked each virtual console and there was nothing relevent, nothing even close!

Kinda weird.......

What secret message does your Gentoo have for you?

I just played All your base are belong to us again


Somewhere on another forum I read an article about a guy who had installed linux on his PC, and when he closed X and shut linux down, the screen said: "it's now safe to turn off your computer" Yes, Windows 98 (!) had still been in the framebuffer, and was only fully erased after the machine had been shut down completely; rebooting was not enough to get rid of it.

Anybody remember GUS burps? Sometimes a cold boot was the only thing that would bring one to an end.
