When I was working part time at a department store a year or so back they had this till that started consistently freezing, right in the middle of a transaction with a customer, which as you can imagine was a huge inconvenience as it meant the customer with all their stuff had to go around to another till and have it all rescanned. I was working this till when it started doing this. The first time it happened the supervisor just hit the reboot and waited for the decade that it took for the OS (XP Lite I think) to fire up the Point of Sale program. It happened again the next day. Rinse, repeat. I said that it was probably a hardware issue, most likely the HDD as it would occur mid transaction (when the sale was being written to the drive). They just kept rebooting it for about a week. Cold resets, as if punching the button would just magically fix it. I told them probably three times that it was a hardware issue. In the end I gave up and avoided the till.

Y2K is a very real threat to humanity people, that is if the machines don't rise against our tyranny first.

I used to work for IT and I can say that I've seen some variations of a lot of these but not a single one is more true than nr 18.
