Quinn’s masterpiece was a dramatic proof of concept. […]
For his demo, he booted an iMac off the Mac OS X
installation CD (thus proving no custom software on the
target iMac) and then plugged in a another Mac. All of a
sudden, fire appeared at the bottom of the target’s screen,
overwriting the bottom of the installer’s screen. Quinn
simply blitted a fire animation over Firewire to the
target’s video ram. Great job.
