Well, you’re doomed.

I’m guessing the ‘puter needs a (re)boot but the billboard is the monitor that no one is … monitoring. Back when I was in the business we called that not an ID10T error but a buke: between user and keyboard error. And no, I’m not at all surprised, that joint’s all honcho no janitor.

We used to call it BCAK – Between Chair And Keyboard,
We use PEBCAK: “Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair” I could list like three examples just from today in our helpdesk ticket system…sigh

Back when I was writing help desk software, we had a primitive AI that would “bubble-up” the solutions that solved the case problem so that the phone team could suggest it earlier in the call. The problem was that the most common solution was always RTFM.
I like the BCAK and PEBCAK acronyms better.
Try turning it off and back on.
On the British sitcom “The IT Crowd,” whenever the phone rings the first words out of their mouths are “Have you tried turning it off and back on?”
Yes!, I’m a fan of that show! That line has stuck in my head.
We used to have that in the banner on our internal IT help site 🙂
