I just got my first BSOD in a long, long time. It has something to do with the winpcap library driver thingy, since Windows blamed npf.sys and I was invoking nmap at the moment.
For some reason, I didn’t get a dialog asking me to report this error to MS. I checked %SYSTEMROOT%\Minidump and found that my last dump was actually from back in October (for a total of three dumps in all, the other from 8/05). I’m curious to see what were the problems there. One day (not any time soon) I’ll whip out windbg once more.
