“The power of a reboot” – IT Support Episode 95
So I’ve just returned from a lovely week in Gran Canaria. On the flight back with one of our Nation’s favourite budget airlines,
– “Would you like a scratch card with that?”
So we’re all on board, sitting and waiting, and then you see something which you really don’t want to see. The picture of a ground engineer arriving in a hi-vis jacket with a screwdriver.
– Oh dear.
Almost two hours later and several engineers, several screwdrivers, the captain comes out on the P.A. and says,
– “Have you tried turning it off and on again?”
So one of my friends laughingly turns around and says,
– “Looks like they’ve been watching your videos.”
The aircraft shut down, all the lights go off, the air conditioning stops. It started getting a bit hot, but then everything fires back up again and then the cabin manager comes out on the P.A. to say,
– “Stay f****** calm!”
– “We’ve identified the fault, it’s with one of the toilets.”
– “We’ve got to take the toilets out of action while we clear the fault.”
Problem solved and then we went.
So the moral of this story is, if you’ve got a very trivial problem it’s always a good recommendation to try rebooting your computer, especially as some of you lovely people leave them, switched on for days or weeks on end without a restart.
So remember, if it’s good enough for an airline it’s good enough for you.
And also, I don’t know what those passengers were eating on the flight out but maybe they needed a bit more fibre in their diet.
Until next time.
