I gave the shutdown order to help with the obvious sluggishness that suggested to this Luddite brain of mine that my silicon friend was working on an update. There’s no arguing with it, however. In its mechanical mind, it decide to do the restart itself. I was merely a bystander.
Technology and I argue often.
