Simple Trouble Shooting Application Now Fixes Everything
I've re-packaged last week's trouble-shooting checklist as an online application.
In case you missed it -- here it is.
I've given some (okay -- way too much) thought to this and have a rough idea about a complete expert-system for trouble shooting all computer problems.
Expert systems that I learnt about way back, in those crazy school days, seemed to be largely focused on medical topics ("male? definitely not pregnant. spots? might be measles."). More recently, circa 2002?, I recall a nifty expert system that could guess any 1970's television show you were thinking of. (Provided it was 'Happy Days' -- which it was).
How about computer problems?
I can envision some kind of wiki-like system where people who have solved their problems can contribute further Q&A to a huge tree of diagnostic trouble-shooting possibilities...
Let me get you started...
Q.1: Is the power on?
A="N"?: Return "Turn the power on."
A="Y"?: Continue to Q.2;
Q.2: Did you turn it off and turn it back on again?
A="N"?: Return "turn it off and turn it back on again."
A="Y"?: Continue to Q.3;
Enough theorising. Check out the trouble-shooting checklist, share it with your loved ones. Use it to solve your computing problems. And be good to each other. Once in a while. Please.
