Wow, mice in a medical lab, who would've thunk it? Big Grin | :-D

Speaking of sporadic freezes and reboots... I once had a customer who printed some 100 invoices at the end of each day.
Ever since we delivered that software they complained that the printer would stop after a couple of prints and they had to reprint about half of the invoices.
Not always though, never during the day and sometimes at the end of the day, but other than that no pattern could be found.
I checked the code, debugged, tested, despite not finding anything made it more fool proof, added additional logging...
Nothing.
I even went over there and everything worked fine during the entire day.
And then a couple of days later I got that call again, not all the invoices were printed.
The logging said the same, only x out of y invoices printed.
So one day my manager was there at around the time of the printing and he decided to just walk in unannounced and uninvited.
He soon found out the problem...
They'd press the print button for 100 invoices and then turned off their computers... WTF | :WTF:
No one there ever thought it could have anything to do with it D'Oh! | :doh:
