I just finished testing a new release of a Dynamics GP integration. I was in the middle of updating my documentation, working in Word, something I've done for a few years on my desktop computer.
After typing a word, blam-o, both monitors go black and then one turns blue.
This is the first time I've seen a BSOD on Windows 8 / 8.1. While less obnoxious than the old Windows NT-style blue screens, it is no more comforting.
My hardware hasn't changed, and I haven't done anything crazy with new software, so hopefully this isn't a sign of my desktop jumping off a cliff like my file server did a few weeks ago.
Thankfully Word recovered my document, so I didn't lose any work. And Windows 8.1 with an SSD boots up lightning fast, so I was back up and working quickly, but a BSOD is not what I wanted to see today.
Is it possible to actually get work done without interruption?
