Profound (but weird) logic

October 30, 2007

A friend recently had trouble with her internet router. It went, very quickly, from working fine to being non-operational. Having tried the standard re-booting and had no joy she called Cyta, the local phone company. They ran through some diagnostics on the phone and then agreed it was a sickly router and offered to send an engineer out.

Said engineer arrived promptly, listened to the explanation of the problem, ran some more diagnostics and pronounced the router dead and needed to be replaced.

While the swap was taking place she commented to the engineer …

“It was working fine. Then the lights flickered and went out”

His response?

“Yes. Just like with people. Why would it be any different for a router?”
