Along with netscape you can kill X and xemacs to piss other users or Apache
or Squid or some big ass simulation some user is running on that box and is

This is sadly a no one situtation. Admins can minize the problem with sane
and strategic (u)limits.

I recall running my box out of mem (40M RAM + 128M swap) and just getting
