Oh, Wally… Waally… Waake uup… There’s an itty bitty favor the gang would like to ask of you.
Ooof! The dreaded hard boot!
Avian flop, er, flap sweat..
In Panel 4, who’s saying that?
Who’s Manuel Reset?
Ah, I see the Topsider IT Department showed up finally. The “Turn it off and then on again” approach didn’t work; time for a reset, which is turning it off and on again but you roll backwards as well. All IT is variations of “Turn it off and on again”.
Nothing to lose and everything to gain.
“Scream out to the world
For taking life for granted and I know
You are by my side
When I turn to hear you cry
I am so afraid of living in oblivion"
That Terrence is one angry little bird. Guess it’s hard to smile with a beak!
“Well, of COURSE we’re going to try a manual reset!”
I’m still waiting for a toothbrush previously known as Dr. Amesworth to be found to be caught in one of their clothes.
I’m honestly wondering if Wally is already…
there is ALWAYS a manual reset, is the switch next to the radioactive power core or in a tunnel that will be filled with molten lava?
“What’ll we do if we found out the world was going to end in ten minutes?” / “We could all make love.” / “Yeah, but what’ll we do with the other nine and a half minutes?”
Someone bring popcorn!
Reverse the polarity and route the power through the transphasic junction.
Well wait, if the system is down, then where is Ted/Eye currently residing? Oh yeah, the stolen brains of his hacked followers…
Push the button…whattaya got to lose. Now where is that manual reset switch…probably on the other side of the facility.
That was my solution to fixing “The Matrix,” … "Have you tried turning it off and on again? … " … ;)
Step one, check all connections….
Is this a plan to send them out to die, or is this a plan to send the mutants out to die?
Of course it’s the ONE thing not covered in the manuals.
So long, it’s been good to know you!
“Can’t we just pull the cord and leave it unplugged?”
Cue “Mission Impossible” music.
Sure, why not? All you need to is pull the plug out of the wall socket, wait five seconds, then plug it back in. What could go wrong?
Oh great, now I’m having Galaxy Quest flashbacks.
Manual Reset: “If you can not see the screen or if program(s) will not exit or respond to commands, and holding the reboot button does not restart the computer, you would need to do a Manual Reset. First, unplug or turn power off to the machine. WAIT until all the disks stop spinning and are completely at rest. This may take up to ten minutes depending on the disk(s) drives installed. Now could be a good time to find your back up media. It may be a tape, 10 inch floppies or punch card deck depending on the machine and configuration.After the disk(s) stop, plug in or turn on power and press the boot button. The main screen should inform you that a non-normal stop occurred and would prompt you to run the debug program, enter YES. As the computer does an analyses and tries to replace corrupted or missing files, it may prompt you for backup media. Install in the backup media in the first location (whether tape drive 1, Floppy disk reader 1 or the main punch card reader).If this does not work, you may need to enter Format C: and rebuild the machine.Please give yourself at least 9 hours to accomplish this task.”1985 Unix Workstation manual which was also used for a DIGITAL compact main frame computer.
Here’s a late thought……it’s back at the room they started at.
Don’t miss our next episode, “Blue Screen of Death” or “Oh, THAT’s What That Button Does!”
Oh dear Wally! Oh dear you should wake up!
This would be a good time for the laws of interreality merging to kick in and have an incredibly unlikely save on the part of the Hero.
