So then do you end up with a duplicate machine in your account? Does it erase any calibration data?
Eh, never mind. I see there are a few search results for “factory reset” where support asked people to do this to troubleshoot problems (and also asked them not to do it unless asked to). I’m assuming it’s not particularly harmful other than erasing diagnostic logs.
Still, not sure it’s helpful for people to stumble accros this and just start pressing buttons.
Reminds me of the old IRC days when people would jump in channel and beg for mod status. We’d tell them “sure. Alt-F4 for mod status.” If they came back 2 or 3 times after being told “oh you must have did it wrong.” it was a big bonus.
We’d do that in world of Warcraft for random hack activations. Yeah alt+f4 for 1000 gold or a random loot award. Or tell the new people in the guild that /gquit(guild quit) gave them bank access or officer status.
Or if someone couldn’t figure out how to leave a guild, tell them /quit which exited the game.
I forget all the stupid anagrams we’d make up to explain them.
