I had a humorous moment today when a printer went down and I had to contact one of our IT guys. He came up, restarted the printer, and made a copy.
He asked me to make a copy. So I did... no issue.
Then the $100 question...
"What kind of sound did it make?", he asked.
"Uh... I can't replicate it... I guess it was like Kathunk...", I replied.
Next thing you know, there were a lot of different sounds being made by him, trying to replicate it, but none of them were the sound I heard.
"Kathunk...", I said again.
Needless to say the printer is working just fine now. So, I will have to write the error message down and let IT know the next time it happens. If only I could I have a recorder close by when it happens...
