    Capitol < Wasnington D.C... Capital < Upper Case Letter

    That was capitalized because it's a title. Well, about the middle third anyway.
    "Money For Nothing" = Dire Straits < That was capitalized because it's a proper noun, the name of a band. No, I didn't spell "Pink Floyd" wrong.< Did I dare use an exclamation point?
    The song is from "Brothers in Arms", (1987). Oh, I almost forgot, "there", is an adverb. "Their", would be the possessive pronoun.
    For the sake of clarification, "They Get (their goes there)> There Money For Nothing And (and there)> There Lunch For Free!!!!!!@!!"

    my mouse don't work.

    I used to do local tech support and database admin for a metal stamping company as an intern. One day, a guy calls me up, says "My mouse don't work". I walk over to the next building, where he was, checked the connections, and plugged in the (PS/2) mouse back in. Told the guy to restart his computer. It was magic apparently, from his reaction.

    No kidding, two days later, same dude calls me back. "My mouse stopped working again."
    "Did you check the connection?"
    "Yeah..."
    So I went back over to the guy's desk, checked the connection, plugged it back in, and told him to restart. 'Twas magic, methinks.

    The dude was the sales manager, and apparently was a furniture salesman at his last job.

    (I make mistakes on a regular basis--I'm not really afraid of them, but at least I try to not repeat the same mistake within the span of two days...)
  5. Nothing in comparison to my old boss. One day he called down reporting a problem with his computer, I'd never actually seen it before as I'd never been in his office for long enough. Anyway up I go to take a look and am confronted by an aging keyboard mouse and monitor. So what seems to be the problem I ask? He replies that the window is stuck in the corner or the screen so I proceed to demonstrate as to how to resize it and minimise maximise (amazing revelation etc). It is at that point I make the discovery that it's Windows 95. Then he mentions that it makes a strange buzzing noise on occasions so I have a look around for the tower and can't find it... Oh I think there is a "box of tricks" around the back there he says. So looking around the back of the desk I stumble across an aging yellowing tower coated in dust with an old 28k RS232 modem sitting on top. My boss had no idea that this was actually "the computer". After opening her up and hoovering out a ton of soil the Pentium 75 inside covered by a buzzing clogged up fan was now actually visible.

    ;)

    Someone emailed me this some time ago, apparently it is a real call log. I had to trawl through my emails to find it.

    ^.^ That was the funniest thing I have read in a long time. Thank you.


    Oh, a bunch of kids at school made a .vbs file that shuts down your computer after having two message boxes pop up, and you having to answer them. No one could figure out how to stop it. I walk up and open task manager and end task....

    Then they decided to put it in the teachers start up folder...... lets just say they still can't get that sorted out. ;X I plan on telling her how to fix it when I get back from Spring Break........ ;)

    Someone called the helpdesk today while I was subbing in for the short staffed crew. What do you say when you pick up the phone and someone says..

    "Do you know anything about computers?"

    I should have hung up and gone back to my forensic analysis.

    Just a user.

    Man, I'm glad I'm not a tech. You guys need to get a grip, really. How many of you would still have jobs if we could all find the power button?

    I think I'll wait a couple of days to ask how to use "search."

    Hmm.... my teacher is bringing her computer to school soon so I can fix it. I gave her a project on CD, right? Well, as she stated, her computer is possessed and she is afraid it will eat the cd... lol.

    Was That a Demon or a Hobgoblin....?

    Being exposed to a number of vicious tape eating VCRs during your lifetime can bring out such irrational fears as this.

    I would say so. I forgot to add that one of my teachers came in and asked how to plug up a VCR last semester... :X

    Shall I assume "teachers" to be a courtesy term or a misnomer?

    Every single day my mom asks me which drive is the DVD drive on the P4 Northwood PC. I have even wrote DVD on it with sharpie and she still asks.

    As for the VCR teacher, it is a misnomer. She simply does not teach us doodley-squat. She gives us tutorials (she "teaches" CAD, using Solidworks and Chief Architect, I use SW) and simple projects. We have to learn ourselves, and I happen to be the best in my class. I have to teach the students, along with showing Mrs. ***** how to rotate the view in SW. I even had to show her how to insert threads....

    As for the DVD thing, don't worry, you'll survive. I have had my dad ask me every day how to defragment.....

    until I placed a shortcut on the desktop. Place a large piece of white/black paper over the drive with big letters saying >>This is the DVD DRIVE!!!!!<<....

    Replace the other drive with a DVD drive and then it won't make any difference. The savings in aggravation will more than offset the small cost. :)

    What's Bottlenecking My Computer...? You Are, A******....!

    But.....,you'd still have to know the drive letter to allow you to access it. From the sound of this thread, that might prove too formidable as well.

    Riiight. I didn't even think about that. Maybe remove the other drive? That would be totally free. :p
