There I am rebooting my workstation
Classic! Laugh | :laugh:

We had a client once, small to medium sized meat processor, who wasn't very keen on IT...
Their server, which kept the whole factory going, was a regular PC standing under someone's desk.
I think the PC was not a regular workstation, but that wasn't necessary for what happened.
The guy at the desk simply bumped into it with his knee and the whole factory fell silent.
They called us in, we went to the site, only to find the server shut down.
Guy hit the off button Laugh | :laugh:
