Default Computers

As we Silver Surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.

I had a problem yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over.

Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong ?

He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'



I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired,





'An, ID ten T error ? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'





Eric grinned .... 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before ?





'No,' I replied.





'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.'

So I wrote down:





ID10T





I used to like Eric, the little bastard.

Why do you think IT support always say, 'Have you tried restarting it yet?'.

'cos they don't really know what is wrong, just clutching at straws more than likely

Haha true, you'd be suprised how much it works though!

On the flip side we do have some daft questions, 2 of the best that have come to me....

"My password says its expired and its asking me to change it, what do i do?"

But my all time number 1.... an email came to me... "My email isnt working, i cant send anything" to which i reply.. "Yes you can..." followed by them replying "Thanks for the quick fix"

And people wonder why i'm a drinker!

i can relate to what everyone is saying here, when i was posted in the falkland islands as a it tech/helpdesk before being re-assigned to iHub (going around servicing computers)

one phone call i got:

me - "IT Helpdesk, SAC John_H speaking, how can i help?"
other end - "Good Morning, Airman, Im Left Tenant ***** (army infantry), my computer wont turn on"
me - "ok, sir, is there any lights showing on the front of the computer?"
officer - "nope, nothing, not even on the printer or screen"
me, trying to think of how to put it - "ok, im trying not to sound patronising or etc sir, but can you check the power cables and ensure the sockets are turned on at the wall"
officer - "sure, give me a minute to check"

a few rustling sounds and banging, he comes back, sounding really embarrassed

officer - "hello, airman, that worked, thanks"
me (laughing my self silly) - "no worries sir, any more problems please dont hesitate to call back, bye"

they actually used the recording in the bar, to show how thick the army officers are
