    Haunted turntable

    Last night, I was behind the TV plugging some things in, and I heard a low-pitched whirring noise. At first I didn't pay any attention to it because I thought it was coming from outside, but I looked and noticed that my turntable spinning very fast- I'm guessing it was spinning at 200+ RPM. I turned off the power (I usually leave the power on, even when the platter is stopped) and after it wound down, I turned it back on and it seems to be working normally now.

    Does anyone have any idea what could have caused this?
    I copied it from the last program in which I passed a parameter, which would have been pre-1989 I guess. - esbo

    My guess is a flow of electrons through a conductor in the presence of a magnetic field.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Your local ghost was hoping to jam to some tunes, and look what you did. You better apologize.
