Repairing Your Computer with Magic?
Douglas Chick

In my career as a network administrator, I have noticed some most peculiar behavior from people when I comes to fixing their computer. Some will open and close the printer tray 3 times before printing. Some people will tap on their monitor as their computer starts up, while others might even chant a favorite vulgar phrase(s). And just when I think Iíve seen it all, I discover something even more surprising.

Share with me what act of Voodoo Magic you perform with your computer to make it work. So I may post them (Obsessive compulsives are encouraged to reply)
