Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    My favorite thing about calling electronics tech support is that the first question asked is always, “Have you turned the power to the unit off and then on again?” I know there are some twits out there, but I would like to think that at least 85% of the people calling had gone through that process more than a few times before picking up the phone.

  2. Hey,
    Being a marine support company turn the power on and off again is quite a valid point you wont believe how many problems (espc with pc based nav systems) are solved with “turn it off and on again”
