some problem with your computer just sort of fixes itself, and you don't know what was actually wrong or what made the problem go away?

Case in point. On my main XP box, I could not get a proper connection to one of the networked printers in my home. Every time I tried to connect to this specific printer hosted on another PC, it came up as a LanManager connection - which works like crap. I delete the printer, try to set it up as a local port (which other printers came us as all by themselves) and Windoze tells me the port already exists, despite my having deleted it, repeatedly, thoroughly.

I set up a connection to that printer on another XP box, and it worked just fine as local port. So I went back and tried one more time on the main box, and IT WORKED!

Just plain FM!

You ever have one of those days?

(Disclaimer: this is not a tech support request - just an example of a hair pulling episode that resolved itself magically.)

My cat took an interest in the keyboard after I left the room for a moment. It thoroughly messed up my Internet Explorer settings and took a while to fix.

When your bank shows up amongst the worst banks in the latest consumer satisfaction survey.

The bottom seven of this year's Forrester Research US bank rankings, first to last, are Bank of America, Chase, Capital One, TD/Commerce, Fifth Third, Citibank, and in last place, HSBC.

When buying 1TB of ram is just that little bit too expensive.

Oh, poo. So it might cost you about $20K.

Consider what it would have cost to buy a full 4 GB of RAM to fill out the address space of the 386 in 1986 - about $750,000. And that's if you could actually, physically interface it.

Don't you just hate it when nobody asks a question in hours on an irc help chat room for myself to answer. (PHP Freaks irc #help)
