A lecturer told me a story once about him trying to compile his code. Every time he tried to compile his code he would lean back in his chair and put his feet up and wait for it to finish. But one day, when he tried to compile his code, his computer would restart. He checked the code for bugs, line by line but couldn't find anything. He ran the compiler, sat back in his chair and the computer crashed again!

After many hours debugging his code, he realised it was nothing to do with his code. Each time he ran the compiler he was leaning back in his chair and putting his feet up. He eventually realised that putting his feet up wobbled the desk and knocked the loose power supply to his pc, causing it to restart.

I guess sometimes you really do need to think outside the box.
