McDonalds Drive-thru computer crashed!

Went to order some healthly food, and just as the first item appeared on the order confirmation screen, I saw:

A Kernel Panic, followed by a reboot of the system (obviously a 'nix box), then it ending in a pitiful flashing white text on black background 'Cannot read from fixed disk (R)etry (F)ail

I was gonna take a picture with the cell phone, but there was somebody in line behind me.

After that they totally screwed up the order and even forgot the straw and napkins (ug).

Of course if it was a Windows box I probably would have got 100 free cheeseburgers.... :P
