Fasten your seat belts while we reboot the plane

Today I had the lucky experience of having the flight crew "reboot" our Embraer 175 before takeoff this morning. It seems this is a common software bug with this particular aircraft that sometimes (but not always) can be rectified by completely shutting down the aircraft, waiting a few minutes and then powering it all back up again to clear the computer(s) that are displaying the faulty message.

At least they're not running Windows - that would give a new meaning to the blue screen of death!
