Fun fact - He's Dead, Jim!

The other day, one of our clients who was trying to access her virtual waiting room, landed on a purple page which displayed the message "He’s Dead, Jim!". Worried, she called us to verify that it wasn’t a potential threat.

"He’s Dead, Jim" is in fact a generic message displayed by Google Chrome when the operating system has terminated the tab’s process due to a lack of memory. Google developers have been having fun refering to the popular show Star Trek and its character Leonard McCoy. This character mentionned the quote severaltimes in the series when something suddenly stopped working.
