Researchers at Microsoft have devised a technique to assimilate the human body as a conduit for consumer electronics. How did Microsoft accomplish this feat? Electrodes attached to body use the skin as a system bus to transmit data and as a conductive medium to distribute power between devices. Microsoft's desired effect is to cut back on the I/O redundancy that results from when multiple devices attempt to communicate.

A glimpse of the exact technique used by Microsoft is outlined in United States patent number 6,754,472 and was awarded to Microsoft and its associates this past Tuesday. [continued]

Windows must now restart because the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly.

The computer will be restarted - it has been initiated by the NT authority system because the remote procedure call (RPC service) terminated unexpectedly.

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience

The program svchost.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will have to restart the program

Ahh, my heart....must manually reboot.....
