I'm glad NASA followed the advice of Roy from The IT Crowd and tried turning it off and on.

re: Curiosity Reboots In Preparation For Mars Landing
I just watched that video regarding this whole mission trip to Mars. I have to say it is very interesting to see if this will have a successful landing, I am curious exactly how big the supersonic parachute is? There was an exceptional amount of knowledge and skills that must collaborate for the mission to be a success. Great video, I was sitting on the edge of my chair, technology and the ability to do this is pure awesomeness!!
