Decided to work on the workstation today (bigger screen, tablet for drawing)... ran the little mandelbrot explorer demo. Managed to lock up the whole machine at just a few hundred iterations. Apparently having compiz on while doing "test the limits of your graphics card" code running is... counter-indicated.
Kinda neat zooming into the mandelbrot until you run into the limits of floating-point precision. Very cool seeing computer-science principles suddenly pop up as a real-world effect :) .
