Part of Ed’s job is I.T., and of course, I have experience with blogging and social media. So we got a kick out of the show “The IT Crowd” when we watched it on Netflix. It’s a British show about the IT department at a big corporation. One of our favorite lines is “Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?” because rebooting a computer fixes a lot of issues.
I also make some graphics for a couple of digital signs at our church, so at the last minute on Sunday morning, I was trying to update them. And of course, the editing program wouldn’t load for me. I was trying again and again to get this program to start up for me and nothing worked.
After complaining to Ed, he asked me, “Did you try rebooting?”
Ha. Of course that should have been the first thing I tried, but I hadn’t yet. So I turned the computer off and on again.
I had my graphics updated and ready to go in five minutes, after wasting double that amount of time complaining about the stupid software!
