The point to this thread is that experienced programmers and operators can often outthink newer people. I once worked with a group of minicomputers that were on occasionally. One night, the operators couldn't get the master computer to reboot, which involved flipping two switches. This was about the time that Oral Roberts got his lightning shot in his "prayer tower." I started goofing around after the operators gave, and gave it my best "Jeeesus, Heeel this computer!!!"
I flipped the boot switches one more time and it started right up.
Needless to say, I got funny looks the rest of the evening.
