scrawled in the dust...

I read yesterday of somebody's mother who, when told to reboot her computer
by turning it off and on again, switched off the monitor, waited a bit then
switched it back on.
I was once visited by a Health and Safety inspection at work where the
department representative waggled a power lead and hard rebooted my
computer. Ane this was before the days of autosave.
I may well have told this tale before...
Many years ago I used to input the customer account data on a luggable at
home when childcare allowed, then print the invoices at the end of the
month. At the end of the day I would save the work I'd done and then back
it up onto large floppy discs, all of which took half an hour or so.
I usually worked in the little front room but we had just acquired a new
kitten and I didn't want her in there so I set up my work on the dining
room table (there's a pic of her asleep in my in tray somewhere). When my
3 year-old was dropped off from nursery I had just a few more entries to
make so, having found my daughter a drink and a snack I sat back down at
the table to finish off and start the save process.
My daughter was not happy about this and after a couple of "In a minute."s
from me she walked up to the table and pulled the plug out of the back of
the computer :(
