I was travelling on business a few weeks ago, and was fortunate enough to be staying in a hotel that had a gym. One morning I was using a treadmill, when I inadvertently dislodged the safety key (this sort of thing often happens when I try to function before the first coffee of the day!)
As you’d expect, once the safety key was dislodged, the treadmill stopped. Trouble was, I didn’t immediately realise what I had done. The lack of caffeine was clearly affecting my neurons! I looked at the treadmill’s digital display for help — and the error message displayed was ambiguous to say the least. I thought I’d share a photo with you:
The treadmill’s digital display showed the word “True”. I have no idea what this means — perhaps “True” is the result of a logical test, or perhaps it’s the name of the manufacturer of the treadmill. Perhaps it was a homage to the 1980’s Spandau Ballet song of the same name. Either way to an end-user, without any context it doesn’t mean anything at all.
