For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

I had no internet connection.

I selected "Troubleshoot __________"

It troubleshooted, it found a solution and I was connected to the internet again.

The first time in all history it's ever solved a problem for me. It is a beautiful day. I don't even know why I chose to click it today, I guess I was just lazy and feelin' lucky.

Has windows troubleshooter ever fixed your problem?

Yeah no more having to tell people to pull up a command prompt and entering "Ipconfig/release" and then a "Ipconfig/renew"

Thatd normally be my first step, but 98% of the time it doesn't work. I'm a Rogers customer, the internet going down once a day is common if you know anything about rogers. And it's usually just an issue on their end. Lunch break, or something.

edit: believe it or not i went to college for computer networking

I used the troubleshooter for net connection issues for a long time now and rarely does it not work.

Good to hear. So did I. Now if I can stay out of a call center I can keep my sanity.

That troubleshooter is the worst. But I'm glad that someone out there has had a positive experience.

It fixed a mic problem I had once, which was just as shocking. At that time, I had 3 places I could configure the mic input volume, and I had found 2 of them. Troubleshooter found the 3rd....
