Novell NetWare Easter Egg - Richard Kiel Memorial

The following Novell KnowledgeBase document includes verification of this easter egg:

Richard Kiel Memorial ABEND: Unload PM312

Please be careful with this one because it will probably crash your server!

From what I've heard from a few developers who work at Novell, Richard Kiel had already left Novell (he didn't actually die -- that's probably why it crashes the server instead) long before this easter egg was discovered.

mr. kiel doesn't crash your server, you will get this message on memory corruption due to a faulty driver or controller. the 'richard kiel memorial abend 27' is an error message which was replaced with 'invalid entry in message list' in later releases. maybe the programmers didn't expect this error to show up, so the strange message made it to production.
