The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Patience during Hangings

My (new) laptop just froze. Happened twice, both times related to copy and paste from IE6 to Outlook.

Normally I might reboot, after 5 minutes of such hanging. However, this time I had a long, slow, download going on, and I did not want to run the risk of having to restart.

So, instead, I took a long break - 26 minutes - walking around the building. Hallelujah! It unfroze. Only to freeze again soon thereafter.

I was expecting something more grim from the title. :-)
