Socks and sunspots
There are times in technology that you trace the root cause of an issue to .... Sunspots.
Seriously, sometimes there's no better reason for something occuring than cosmic karma, sunspots or God is up in computer heaven laughing his head off today. Because sometimes there's an issue that you can't find an event log, can't find a dump file, can't find anything as the ultimate root cause and it's no longer doing "it" anymore and so there's nothing else you can do but blame it on sunspots.
Or perhaps the same cosmic force that causes socks to get trapped in some sort of black hole that sucks them out of the house never to be seen again.
Seriously, Where Do Those Missing Socks Go? - Associated Content - associatedcontent.com:
Others have obviously done more research on the missing sock issue to point out that they really do not leap across the time space vortex to another planet and really do sometimes end up in the washing machine, but deeper inside than we ever thought possible.
Which unfortunately means I'm going to have to stop blaming sunspots for technology issues I can't explain and actually figure them out one of these days.
(random thoughts on a Sunday after doing laundry, if you happen to find a single black sock and a single blue sock in your house can you find the time space vortex in your washer and send it back to mine?)
