I need a snapshot of a Applications crashing because of lack of memory. Y'know, that message that comes up when it shuts down saying there is not enough memory available. I'm asking on here because I know it used to happen a lot to me when I had my old Performa. Can someone take a screen shot (command-shift-3) when it happens to them? reply or e-mail me: mattsliva@mac.com

Thanks,
Matt

This is a catch-22 right?

You want to be *out of memory* but have enough memory avail for screen-shot to work.

It sounds wierd, but yes, its a visual. I was making a pamphlet on how to quit applications. At my school, people think they are on Windows computers and just close the window. They haven't figured yet that they need to quit applications. So the iMacs will crash on the all the time. They must have some magic touch to crash a computer. I can never seem to do it when I want to. But yea, I need the snapshot as a visual.

but, of course, i don't know if the snapshot will work. i originally wanted to find the box with resedit. but that's ok if no one gets one. the project is due pretty soon.
