Real-Life Frogger Ends In Hospital Visit 314

Posted by samzenpus

BigSes writes "A 23-year old man has been hospitalized after police in South Carolina say he was hit by an SUV while playing a real-life version of the video game Frogger. Authorities said the 23-year-old man was taken to a hospital in Anderson after he was struck Monday evening. Before he was hit, police say the man had been discussing the game with his friends. Chief Jimmy Dixon says the man yelled 'go' and darted into oncoming traffic in the four-lane highway. Has it come time to ban some of the classics before someone else goes out and breaks a few bricks with their heads after eating a large mushroom?"

An early November update hosed my 2 XP SP3 computers causing memory leaks. Any computer running continuously for 12 or so hrs crashed. Now this update takes out a Win 7 64 bit computer. 2 major problems is a one month period. I put the XP's on Panda cloud. Probably do the same for the Win 7 as well.
