    Default WHY must people interfere? (Rant)

    Rant ahead.

    Been at my friends house in Wallasey today taking photos for her art project. Started at half 2 and finished about 11pm. Uploading the days photos to her laptop her mum walks in and is chatting to me. Without thinking she presses the off button on the printer. The memory card was in the printer and the photos were starting to copy over to the laptop.

    It almost happened in slow motion, explorer.exe crashed on the laptop and so did Windows Photo Viewer.

    Now down 150 odd photos I need to do again tomorrow, do another 60 odd miles of driving to go back to the same places as today, and find a new memory card because this one can't be browsed or formatted now. I'm a bit ****ed off.

    Ho hum.

    Rant over.

    Edited to remove repetition and add detail.

    Somewhere in the back of her mind it will be your fault, but it is annoying when people can't just leave alone.

    I had this today...

    Video recorder ready for my Silverstone parade laps... got about 30 seconds in and had to take a phone call. During the termination of the call the video stopped recording and I lost the rest of the lap time. (It must have been me pressing the wrong buttons)

    I was gutted when I got home and found out.

    Technology hey.... Best left well alone, it might be the future but it certainly wont be safe and reliable

    Yep... human error caused by electronic buttons.

    If I didnt have 10,000 buttons in my car I wouldnt have to make errors.

    Its aiding and abetting at the least

    Say NO to buttons

    Probably holds a responsible or safety critical job...
    I remember a few years ago receiving a phone call
    "We've been here for three hours and there is now smoke coming from one of the buildings"
    "Did you complete the hourly checks?"
    "Yes, and forty minutes ago there was no smoke, however we found a machine on, so we switched it off"
    "What was the machine called and what was it doing?"
    "I've no idea, but it was quite noisey"
    "Go back and switch it on again"

    The numpty had switched off the heating system cooler
    They couldn't get back into the building due to the smoke, but I had already called the Fire Brigade and they switched it back on, and cleared the smoke
    We were then shown the machine
    There were no warning signs on it, but on the wall a LARGE sign "Do NOT switch off", blah, blah, blah, and instructions of what do in the event of machine failure
