I love how when you're working on a remote computer, and you have to reboot it, it always takes just a little bit longer than you imagine it should.

Just enough time to make you think something's gone very wrong.

@mike that infinite `ping` until she comes back.

@mike

Yeah, I remember me playing Bandit for the first time. The command taking longer time to display on the terminal made me feel like I've done it terribly wrong.

@mike This is especially true on cloud hosted VM instances, where the time taken to complete the reboot depends on how loaded the other guests are on the host.

Sometimes, it's quick; sometimes, it's not. Is it you? Is it them?

The questions. So many questions!
