Hah,

as a person who's been in tech support, I can confirm that people can do amazing things with...errr, I mean TO their computers!

A co-worker once had to fly 1300 kms to help a customer who had a problem with his servers... only to find that the owner had decided to move the rack to another place and had unplugged the servers, but hadn't plug the servers back...


:p

heheh most of those are funny

the credit card one looks contrived, since one hasn't been activated yet.

That's the best one.

I imagine that's why it's not activated. It was a replacement for the first one that "got lost cause the internet ate it". Dude probably ordered up a second one, just activated it, and tried downloading some pr0n. Once his second card went funky, he called up the PC guy.

I work tech support, and I hate to say...I've seen worse. The stories you hear are true. I didn't believe it either until it became my job.

Lol. And the sad thing is that people who do these things don't even have a clue how stupid they are, probably find themselves rather smart and good at computers.

Had a a GF's son jam ALL of my CD's between the drive bezel & case once, trying to make the computer work. he was only 4 or so, hard to get mad @ him for it, scratched 3/4 of them to the point of being unuseable.

@ least his mom was cute;)

I've actually seen the CD-ROM Problem before, without people having a actuall CD-ROM Drive. I was once asked what was wrong and I said. "I had to replace your CD-ROM Drive..."

I guess ATOT sucked up all thebandwidth.



I am very sorry, but this site has had so much traffic lately, it's exceeding my bandwidth allotment! This can be very expensive!

I asked for contributions, but out of all the traffic (I had over 16,000 hits last night alone) not a dollar was contributed.

Stupid Computer Tricks will return soon.

Best Wishes,
