Random memory

I remember crashing the terminals in the public library for fun occasionally. Back when I was younger and more irresponsible.

I found out that if you enter a search string that's nearly the length of the input field and whose last character is a question mark, the thing will crash. And come back up again, some kind of Unix.

Of course, all those terminals have long since been replaced with desktop PCs, probably running some version of Windows.
