Scroll Lock key as OS crasher

Recently, while surfing the wikipedia website, I’ve bumped into an article about the ScrollLock keyboard key. In list of its utilizations in numerous programs, the following one made me smiling:

In Windows NT-based operating systems with a certain registry setting called "CrashOnCtrlScroll" enabled, double tapping Scroll Lock while holding the Ctrl key initiates a system crash to allow debugging the current state of the operating system.

Be careful, guys! =)
