    Whatever the problem is on the satellite computer, it probably started last Sunday, 30 Dec: “– ERROR! COMMAND NOT RECOGNIZED!” Xaxos, or one of his agents, must have typed something wrong. Spelling counts!

    Morning, Anniephans!
    Just to remind us all of how computers have simplified all our lives.

    Here’s the link to Annie 2004 .

    We have become victims of our own technology.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if Xaxos showed up as the bad guy in the Will Smith ANNIE reboot? (I know it won’t really happen – I’d just enjoy seeing a cyborg singing “Easy Street”!)

    Maeder & Kupperburg are right, you know. You really don’t want to piss off the computer.

    Was there a solar flare at that time. The influx of solar radiation sometimes shut down satellites if they are caught with the operators being unaware.

    Some error has occurred but they don’t know it yet.

    Punctuation counts as well. Read about the theories as to why Mariner 1 was lost:

    “…Regardless of whatever may have given rise to initial reports of a “missing hyphen”, the simplest and most consistent-sounding explanation that the public and Congress would accept would probably have been preferable to those who simply wanted to get on with the job of a Venus fly-by mission. The stories had contradictions, perhaps, but they were so technical that nobody who could have interfered with Mariner-program progress was likely to care about them or even notice. (After all, even in one later NASA account, the supposed “hyphen” is reported as missing from instructions at one point in the text, and from equations at another3)."
