    Strange question, but here -

    I was in a Yahoo chat room the other day, and somebody became upset at another chatter. This person was able to enable some type of command within the chat room that literally locked up my computer, as well as everybody else’s I would guess. A series of never ending codes ran across my screen. The only thing I was able to do was to cut the power to my computer to get out. My guess is that it somehow locked up the CPU in some way, as it tried to process all of the continuous information.

    I am curious what this was, and how the person did it (I am NOT looking for the specifics as far as trying it myself)

    Thank-You.
