Abort, retry, fail

Over the course of a single evening, Rev. Smith faced frustration when his efforts were aborted, retried, and ultimately failed. “I booted up to go run at about 7:30pm,” reported Smith. “But I quickly found that there were too many bugs, so I had no choice but to abort.” Then after a quick application of Bug-Fix®, Smith retried. But twenty minutes later, he failed when his whole system crashed. “I didn’t see that wall,” said Smith, “but there it was.” The crash was severe enough that Smith would have had to boot-up all over again, but instead he decided to just shut down for the night and restart tomorrow.
