    the computer that takes notice of and produces a written record of all alarms presented to the operator
    for later review, aka "Post Mortem Analysis",
    is not doing its job.

    Could be as simple as a printer switched to standby or paper jammed
    or as serious as the program quit running for some mysterious software reason.
