I am reading through the GS/OS Reference Manual and have

stumbled across some interesting notes written by Apple.

 

In Chapter 10 on Handling Interrupt Signals, if none of

the interrupt handlers accepts a given interrupt, it becomes unclaimed.

This can cause problems and the one that caught my attention is this:

random transient phenomena such as cosmic ray or subatomic particle bombardment

What???

 

Is Apple serious?
Has anyone have this happened to their IIGS?
Or is it their sense of humour?

Apple is actually serious. Scientists have recorded the energy release due to an event like this.

When you have close to 7 million machines out there, it is a definite possibility.

It would take place so fast you'd never know it happened.
