Thats hilarious, I know some one who cannot grasp the concept that the HDD is not the big black box w/ the light on it. Even showed them a HDD a dozen times. :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: I love it.

I think this will get you to a copy of Rod Shelley's documentary evidence of how customers do things ... WRONG!

http://unix.rulez.org/~calver/pictures/stupid_users/

Had an email converse w/ the man & he is quite nice, but is done with tech support from both directions - supportees & management

Enjoy!

Hi Guys just got back from a freebie call out  :evil2: 11pm GMT

the lady in question, had signed up to NTL UK cable  a few weeks back after being on 56K dial up , it was the usual cock up by the installer , and he did not have the sign up details,

on day 2 I got called in , got the details , loaded an antivirus & firewall , did a speed test or 2 , reset the rwin , lite the fuse and escaped ,

a day back I got a call , I cant connect to the internet or mail , and she had phoned NTL , but the guy was a idiot , and no help  :lol: , I think he got some abuse ,

So this evening I went over , she was still complainuing of not being able to connect ,

so I turn on the puter having noticed the modem lights were ok ,

first thing I see is NO SIGNAL on the flat screen moniter , the puter loads up with the correct bleep , with a black screen  :2funny: checked the vid lead it was OK

yeah, the vid card had failed , the puter had onboard graphics as well as the Nvidia card (Asrock m/b ) so I got it up running after a bios change,

:lol: she said you ar clever , why couldnt the NTL Guy have told me that , I told him I could not connect to NTL ,  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

So what else is going to break down???? :smitten:  And are you now on call in an instant?  :wink:

Hi grandpa , yeah,  on call 24 hrs  :evil6: ,

the only cure for this I guess is to  is to start charging , I got caught in this trap working for a charity for the elderly , and bless them they passed on my contact number  to all , but in all fairness it has been a good learning curve for me , and a pay back for all the good things I have gained from computers and the internet , like TMN etc. and friends from around the world , how do you put a price on that ?

Roco,

Your right on that price, nothing like something to keep you on your toes thinking and then the satisfaction of a thank you smile.  :grin:  Many I know never thought I would be one to use a computer let alone build my own. Well if you break it you fix it.  :smiley:

Hi grandpa , I got my first real computer at 54y , so I ain't looking for a Career  in fixing computers, just more than happy with the international friendship that it can give , just like this contact , I grew up in the days of post meaning sticking a stamp on a letter  :lol:

BTW I build my own also, but with the UK prices , the next one will be a while yet  :evil6:
