forkwar
deprogramming.us

A "forkbomb" is a computer algorithm that chases its tail, repeating and replicating itself until it eventually crashes the system.
Forkwar is a special "graphically-enhanced" forkbomb implementation that illustrates this process using the easy-to-understand example of U.S foreign policy! Crash your system - the patriotic way!

(Windows version runs only on Windows 2000, XP, and possibly NT 4. Sorry, doesn't work on 95/98/ME!)

More to the point: Here's our exquisitely poignant source code. The medium is the massage (not the crashy spewy part.)

Shouts to Alex McLean (forkbomb.pl - of which this is an adaptation, but not to the same end.)
