After reading a post by Wheezer, it made me want to share a problem with you guys that I fixed awhile back.

I had a server sitting in my kitchen for awhile, that worked perfectly in the afternoons. However, in the mornings, the server would randomly restart.Any ideas what was causing it?

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, as the problem was way more unexpected than I thought it would be.

So, guess the problem :P

I’m thinking it’s something to do with the enviroment in your kitchen.

Maybe something along the lines of stray microwaves from your micorwave? Or an electrical short in your coffee maker causing power fluctuations?

Or possibly even something as strange as your large dog wagging his tail and hitting the computer with it while he/she was eating?

Any of those in the ball park? Confused

Probabal reason is microwave disturbances from your Microwave Oven (if you have one, that is). If you don’t have one, maybe it’s a random occurence.

(According to quantum mechanics everything is a possibility – even a broken piece of glass to restore itself) Wink

A small child that liked to hit the power button.

Karen: That’s so outside the box that it won’t surprise me if you’re right. Smile
