This is both the scariest story you will ever hear as well as the most inspirational event I can think of for Hugh and cartoon glory.
I’m currently at 34,000 feet working away. IM, Skype, Email, Slingbox all humming right along.
I get a bit sleepy and doze off a bit. Just close my eyes.
I sortta hear the pilot come on (Lufthansa flight) in a German accent talking about a problem and having to restart the system.
I then half open my eyes to the monitors and screens all over the airplane, rebooting windows. Oh and, absolutely, you know turbulence starts right up as the boot text is scrolling by.
I bolt up, start looking around an realize it’s the WinCE based entertainment system that has been restarted.
I can only say that being in a half sleep state thinking the pilot just ctl-alt-del the aircraft is quite possibly the most horrific nightmare I’ve ever had.
It also pointed out a very sound reason for not checking baggage.
Excuse me while I go change my underwear and clean this seat.
