all it needed was a freakin' reboot?

Who designed Spirit's software? Bill Gates?

This from a Post article about the two NASA Mars landers, Spirit and Opportunity:

On Friday, NASA erased 1,700 files from Spirit's flash memory, making it more manageable for the rover's random-access memory. Engineers then rebooted Spirit.

"I am pleased to report it appears to be working just fine," said Glenn Reeves, chief engineer for the rover's flight software. He said NASA by Sunday should be able to declare Spirit "fully recovered."

Gimme a break.
