Online Crash Analysis

Ever been gifted with a stop error on Windows 2003? This is not a rant, as I am 99% sure the error was due to crappy hardware. When I logged in one of our W2K3 Servers the system presented the usual screen that demands explanations of why it was so unpolitely shut down.

It's gonna be sweet make MS waste their time to find out I have a bad memory card :-).
