vSphere emergency dumps

Make what you want of the title of this post but VSphere includes functionality within the SDK and within HA that performs a screen dump of your Virtual Machine when you get a bluescreen or VMtools not responding (also something you can do in Vmware workstation) Eric Sloof has coded a great app to see each of your VM's current screen dump, this can be found at http://www.ntpro.nl/blog/archives/1097-Big-Brother-Really-Is-Watching.html...

This got me thinking wouldn't it be cool if VMware got a screendump of every virtual machine in use globally and made a big master collage out of this, a bit like what this kid did http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/article578081.ece

This is also a good reason to disable screen savers in your VM's, they consume CPU cycles and also means you wont see what's going on ;)
