Dallas Cowboys Stadium Continues Streak of Giant Screen Fails - Windows error message - Gizmodo
I have yet to see a message like that on my mac
The link in the article to the screen blocking a punt was pretty funny. The idiots designing the stadium were so caught up in how large they could display ads to the fans, and forgot about what the stadium was going to be used for.
In other windows news... Win 7 gave me a BSOD the other day after updating. It would immediately go to a blue screen at startup, so there was no way to get it running to fix it, even with safe mode. finally after the 6th or 7th time of trying safe mode, it popped up the message that the update failed, and I was able to do a system restore. Lesson learned? nothing. Same ol' thing, don't trust the updates.
i had the same issue with 7 on my netbook, it was the display driver. a week later the driver was re-updated and it worked fine.
The overhead display is a score board and it met and exceeded league minimum height requirements. Therefore the "idiots" you speak of are the NFL for having their standards too low, not the architects, engineers or the Cowboys brass.
Samba Blue Screen nuke is back in windows too (Vista and 7). Been restarting my desktop support guy all day today.
That stadium was the BIGGEST waste of money anyone could have spent...
itll probably pay for itself in 5-10 years. and not only that....i didnt see anyone hit that score board in the minnesota game. guess we'll have to wait for the giants to come to town to see if it's really an issue when games matter.
i work about 1/4 mile from the new stadium. its pretty nice. can see it from my office window
Its got to be a chop, if windows was down, the display wouldn't be working. It doesn't just scroll what the hell ever happens to be on the screen of the computer, it scrolls what it's program tells it to.
i hate you....post deleted. totally was reading the other one and then tabbed to bob saying enlighten me. so i went off.
lol. It happens.

Totally awesome. I played tons of video games up on the big screen in the planetarium I used to work in. It was pretty sweet, especially with the concert stereo system in there to rock out to.
The strip screen definitely looks fake to me- how the hell would Windows scroll the message across a weird aspect screen like that anyway? I don't think it would happen.
We'll see if it screws up at the U2 concert in October. I'll have plenty of time to look at it.
