Ok, I'm Flummoxed

I just love this modern self-repairing hardware and software. It certainly makes the life of a technical wizard much easier. All you have to do, apparently, is jump into the pool for a couple of hours, have a few Belikins, take a short nap and... problem solved.

Flummoxed - adjective, baffled, confused, puzzled, stumped, foxed, lost at sea, bewildered, at a loss, mystified, stymied, bamboozled, nonplussed... and other such words.

Just now, I went to the software for my weather station to try and see if I could figure out what the problem was. 'Was' is the operative word here. It seems that it's repaired itself. So, after completing this report, my work here is done.

That was easy. Now, where's the red button?


  1. Just shows that Microsoft isn't the only software architect that figures most problems can be overcome simply by rebooting!!

    Hope it doesn't happen again since you haven't a clue what you did to "fix" it... LOL


  2. Hi Julian,

    And my 'problems vs. solutions' record remains unblemished!

    I did almost ruin the perfect record. I downloaded and installed an update to the weather software. Luckily it installed to a different folder, so I was able to go back to the original software and retrieve all my settings.
