An, err, long time ago, I found that I could consistently crash both
FreeBSD and Linux by loading a file larger than virtual memory into a
binary editor . . .  (I had had to make an image of a hard disk to search
for versions of a paper when ~ got deleted.  While an older machine, the
hard drive than even VM on the other machine.  I eventually got the paper
back [maybe I split the file?]   . . . just manipulating it was no small
task.  [maybe I finally filtered the disk through strings or tr to a file
on a zip disk for transport?])
