Computer Woes

Recently I came upon some pictures that would make any electrician cringe.

tangle of wires

more tangles

such technology

Those pictures are scenes from India. It's where you probably end up calling when you have a technical problem with your computer!

Here's a story I heard recently about someone fortunate enough to have local tech support:

SUPPORT: Hello, this is Tech Support. How can I help you?

COMPUTER USER: Last night my computer started making a lot of hissing noise at me so I shut it down. This morning when I turned it on it started hissing and cracking, then started smoking and a bad smell, then nothing.

SUPPORT: I'll have a technician come over first thing this morning, just leave the computer just like it is, so he can find the problem and fix it, or change it out with another computer. Give me your address and phone number. The technician will be there just as soon as he can.

When the technician got there, the woman showed him where the computer was and repeated what had happened to it. This is what the technician found wrong. Take a look at the pictures... you won't believe your eyes!!! !!

strange computer problem

quite a cable

snakes are for plumbing

YIKES!

And you thought you had computer problems!

The technician told her: It must have been after the mouse!

The woman didn't think that was funny at all.

Since my summer job is being a PC tech on campus, I find myself hoping I never have to face something like that!

The other day a fellow tech sent me a cartoon that made me laugh out loud. When duty calls, one must answer that call....

Imagine ... someone being wrong on the Internet

As a computer, I find your faith in technology amusing.
