A few weeks ago, I was having problems with one of our modeling programs. I fought with it and couldn't seem to make the model run. Today, I had a similar issue, so my TA and I worked together after class on it. (Giving someone else remote control of your screen is kind of trippy!) After half an hour of extra work, I thanked him for his time but told him I wanted to put the model on pause and go exercise. With the promise that I would try again later tonight or tomorrow, my TA gave me one final suggestion: try completely restarting the program.
Tonight, I shut down my computer and restarted everything. The model ran! I think that makes me an expert at tech support and structural equation modeling. I'm really developing some skills!
Time I woke up: 8:30 am
