    Oh come on... I'm sure just once you must have chosen a marginally less than stellar bottle of vino...

    Dear Grandchildren, let me tell you a really funny story that Grandpa did years ago. You see this was when people still used a thing called a camera and lighting, not just a smart communicating do all device.......................

    We must be operating in different universes. If I haven't done at least five dumb things on a given day, then I'm being lazy. But keep in mind that's "dumb" things. Really, really dumb things that could have life-terminating consequences, I try to avoid mainly because I'd probably do a half-assed job and end up being a burden on my family. But you can't really grow without pushing the boundaries, and every so often, you step over. Just make sure that the other side isn't a half-mile drop.

    I have a photo related stupidity that happened yesterday. I was refilling 5 ink cartridges on a Canon Pro 1. It isn't difficult but a bit tension-inducing because one is working with messy stuff with the potential of a major costly screw up.

    Finished, went to print and a print error popped up on one of my newly filled cartridges. Removed it, checked contacts, reseated, all to no avail. Even changed chip. Nothing.
    Finally after staring at it for a while, I thought to weigh the cartridge. In the pressure of doing something for the first time, I had done every step but actually fill that last cartridge with ink.

    With ink, it worked fine.

    Reminds me of the Tech Support 101 Caller Reply List: Support Personnel Question One:

    "Okay sir....is the device plugged into a working electrical outlet?"

    "Uh..well, of course it is! Jeeze, whaddaya' think I am some kind of idio.... oh, wait, it's working now! Bye!"

    For a number of years, I managed several buildings as the IT support manager. We kept logs of help calls; always heavily edited for publication purposes. However, one of my techs invariably included the acronym "ID10T" as the code for user-induced problems. And, yes, any number were for folks who failed to power up monitors, or accidentally unplug equipment from surge protectors.
