in reply to "Chuck Norris"-ing code

Way back when I was an electronic tech at a university. At that time a number of departments I worked for had Apple IIe computers. From time to time they would break and I would be called in to look at them. Most times that was all I needed to do - look at them, and they would burst into life again. I got a bit of a (positive) reputation as a result. Funny thing is, most of those faults didn't come back!

My name's not Chuck by the way, and it only seemed to work like that for Apple IIe computers.


Perl reduces RSI - it saves typing

    Care to drop over GrandFather,

    I could use your "Magic/Chuck Norris-ing on a couple of dead monitors!

      Dead monitors! Hell we have a couple of dead banks (USA) that could use that sort of revival... :)
