    Cool conversations with the help line on NHL Gamecenter

    Ok, spent some $$ so that I could watch my Boston Bruins reign supreme this year ( possible Cup run, maybe ) and signed up for NHL Gamecenter a few days ago.
    Works great on my iPhone, and one 'puter that I dual boot with Win 7. ( Worked on 7, not ubuntu..)
    Numerous attempts at it on my 3 Ubuntu computers without success.
    Called the help line yesterday..."bla, bla bla, try this, try that" was the recording that proceeded conversing w/ a human.
    Human answers and asks what the problem is. He asks if I tried this, or tried that... I told him that I didn't understand what he's talking about ( I'm not a computer guy..used Ubuntu for around 1.5 yrs and still learning daily, advanced noob kinda, so not real keen on all the tech terms...yet. )
    He asked what system I'm using.."Linux" I said.
    crickets crickets

    "Oh"
    He then says.." Ok, I don't believe the crap you don't understand, you're a Linux user, c'mon now..."
    He asked what flavor and I told him the big U 13.10.
    A few laughs and we ended the conversation.
    He never did explain anything to me and didn't believe me when I told him I didn't understand.
    ( I did manage to figure it out as it must be a problem w/ pepperflash in Chrome..worked perfectly in FF and Chromium ( and Opera )

    Oh well...life as a misunderstood Ubuntu noob.

    It seems his strategy was successful then.

    Don't mind me, I'm only passing through.
    Once in a blue moon, I'm actually helpful
