Until I have to reboot my computer?



Now I realize that some folks might be crunching some pretty big files on their computers, but a reboot message that gives you three DAYS notice?


This pop up just struck me as really comical.





Almost tempted to let er run until Saturday and reboot, but it reminds me every 15 minutes that I only have three days left to reboot. :willy:

I knew I had heard that message before...

Douglas Rain (HAL): I've just picked up a fault in the AE35 unit. It's going to go 100% failure in 72 hours.

(from the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey)

Good catch!

Thanks, not like me to be the first around here on much of anything. Surprised more people didn't catch it. I thought it was classic dialogue & movie though.


Keir Dullea (Dave Bowman): Hello, HAL do you read me, HAL?

HAL: Affirmative, Dave, I read you.

Keir Dullea (Dave): Open the pod bay doors, HAL.

HAL: I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Keir Dullea (Dave): What's the problem?

HAL: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.

Keir Dullea (Dave): What are you talking about, HAL?

HAL: This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.

Keir Dullea (Dave): I don't know what you're talking about, HAL?

HAL: I know you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.

Keir Dullea (Dave): Where the hell'd you get that idea, HAL?

HAL: Dave, although you took thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
