the usefulness of wishful-thinking as a programer

Today, when starting cygwin bash, i get:

      2 [main] bash 6324 exception::handle: Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION

O, technology. What a pain in the ass. A few hours is waiting for me to suck juice out of my life. A web search on the error message turns up a few posts, all esoteric.

Luckily, after restarting Windows, the problem went away. O, the miracle of wishful-thinking.
