Guilty also! A while back, I locked up when asking for a print. … later, I got 317 copies of the same page!
We have a critical application at work that has some ‘issues.’ When you experience the problem, just click the error box 27 times and it will resolve the problem. Now, I’m not crazy about the problem, but the application was written years ago by someone long gone and there is not a commercial replacement for it. I’m more surprised that someone discovered the fix and wrote the document explaining how to fix the problem. And yes, it is always 27 clicks of the mouse and no, there isn’t any readily identified incident that causes the application to fail. Think of the number of times a tech had to see the problem and just continue to click until it worked. Then, the next time it happened, clicking the mouse until it fixed. Then, actually sitting there and counting the number of clicks that it took to fix it and verifying it before he documented that as the fix. Someone with way too much time on their hands, probably, but then again, it fixes the problem.
years ago at the DMV while getting my CDL the clerks HD spun down in the middle of processing my paperwork I told her to slap the side of the computer which she did and the HD spun back up and we finished. Sometimes force applied to the problem helps and sometimes it just makes you feel better.
