2015 HELP: Useful solution rituals for virtual worlds and other digital equipment

Useful solution rituals for virtual worlds 
and other digital equipment
I started to put this advice in my main solutions page because it is so simple.  But it is so widely useful that I decided we would want to be able to link to it directly.  So it needs its own page.

For any digital equipment that stops working

  • Turn it off.
  • Disconnect it from power.
  • Let it sit for a half-hour*
  • Power it up and try again
  • For routers and modems, do this to both.
*Ten seconds will probably work for most things.  But if you try 10 seconds and it does not solve the problem, you will wonder if 30 minutes would have worked.

  • (More after the break)
  • Where is Arcadia?

        For anything that is not working in a virtual world

        • Move to another parcel and return.  Dbl-click TP
        • TP to another sim and return.  
        • (Restart the sim.  On Kitely, use Stop World)
        • Log off, reboot your computer, log back on.
        • Log off, wait a few hours before you try again.
