Testing a Widget and noticed the following bizzar behavoir, power everything on, gets stable, load config, load test script and run, no it wont work. Leave hardware on go for a coffee system starts working mysteriously. Next day same procedure system won't work until I have a coffee.

So, I am now confused it only works when I have why I cannont let this by (I mean I would love to write the manual, clag all bits together open a config file (not specific) run test scripts while making and consuming coffee for best results use Tassimo)
Is it the smell/odor of fresh brewed coffee that opens the dimensional portal to success? If so, you may want to keep a cup of coffee lying around your work-space 24 hours a day, and see if the portal stays open for that long?
If it is the actual action of you consuming coffee that keeps the portal open, then I would recommend a continuous IV drip.
Bah! That's easy; I've had manboobs since I was 12 years old. But it took 8 years of taekwondo traniing to turn them from fat to solid muscle. Oh, and about three years for them to return to their previous state after the school closed and I quit practicing. Sic transit gloria mundi.
After many years of making resolutions that I failed to keep, I got tired of feeling like a loser. In or near 1978, I made a resolution to put more things off. I have faithfully kept that one, and haven't got around to making another since. That's what I call Success!
