The Moscone BSOD-o-Tron has been lost to us forever.

"Well son, a funny thing about regret is, that it's better to regret something you have done, than to regret something you haven't done."

A few weeks ago a certain fellow came up to me and said:

    "Hey, you know that Moscone sign that you blogged about?"
    "I sure do."
    "Do you want it?"
    "I... what..."
    "We're loading it onto a truck... and it's got to go somewhere..."

I'm as surprised as you are that I chose not to pursue this. Much as I would love to have a gigantic BSOD-o-Tron... I mean, it has so much to recommend it! It's 25'×15'! It probably uses a ludicrously gargantuan amount of power! I can't even guess how much it weighs -- but I'll guess that the front of my building can't support that weight. And I'll further guess that at least 100 pounds of that weight is a decade's worth of electrocuted pigeon carcasses! And, lest we forget, it hasn't actually worked since 2003!

What's not to love?
