So a few minutes ago I am sitting at my computer in my office and my wife is sitting at her computer on hers. I have PC I built with my own hands, she has a Mac laptop.

My computer NEVER crashes, ok, maybe it crashes once a year. It's on a battery backup unit isolated from power failures. The Mac is meh, chess freezes on occasion.

Suddenly, and at the same time:

1) I got a Blue Screen of Death on my PC.

2) Her Mac froze up & stopped working.

We were in separate offices in the same house but heard each other yell & curse.

What the fuck? Radioactivity? Cosmic rays? UFOs?

Please explain.

Are the computers connected via a network?

(Actually, it could be something so simple as a an electricity surge, not big enough to short the switches but big enough to generate a BSOD and whatever the Mac equivalent is).

both to the same dsl modem/router but not talking to each other--hers is on wireless & mine wired.

it's just the oddity of 2 computers crapping out at the same instant that made me think we had been attacked by invisible rays. or maybe it's the hole in the ozone.

well no, i'm on a 1500VA UPS and she's using a laptop where the battery deals with that sort of crap.

i'm saying, this is the work of UFOs or CIA operatives or both.

Fairly unlikely - the only thing that connects the two is the electricity supply and the router. Has to be one of those two. Of course, someone with access to your home network could, in theory, cunt both your computers, but it's unlikely. Generally speaking, it's all quite unlikely. Mac/ PC networks (even if it's just sharing the same router) are cunts, in my experience (and if my housemates are reading - Macs are for gays).
