And that actually had nothing to do with the problem, really! The memory backup 
battery had gone kaput, so the computer couldn’t remember that it was supposed 
to be headless. It was a stupid custom battery that was no longer available, so I 
wired up an AA holder and put some lithium AAs in there.

Problem solved! But with no help from the cretin who authored that error 

Not so uncommon.

In the Big Blue Iron days, a friend was the sysop for our BIG computer computer operations.* He had those shelves of constantly updated, loose leaf manuals. Trying to track down a problem, he followed references from page to page, book to book, finally finding the admonition to refer to his sysop. "I AM the Sysop!!!"

I had a manual for a program, On (let's say) page 146, it advised me to go to 
page 146 for the answer.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
