    Lol, it's been happening to me these past few days. Gives me a headache every time I wake up.

    YKYAGW you're making puns about computer-related terms on a daily basis.

    Computer skills
    This ought to make you feel better (smart) about your computer skills! Unbelievable, but supposedly all true!!!!

    =================================

    Female customer: A white one...

    ===============

    Customer: Hi, this is Doreen. I can't get my diskette out.
    Tech support: Have you tried pushing the Button?
    Customer: Yes, sure, it's really stuck.
    Tech support: That doesn't sound good; I'll make a note.
    Customer: No , wait a minute.. I hadn't inserted it yet... it's still on my desk... sorry...

    ===============

    Male customer: Hello... I can't print.
    Tech support: Would you click on 'start' for me and...
    Customer: Listen pal; don't start getting technical on me! I'm not Bill Gates.

    ===============

    Customer: Hi, good afternoon, this is Martha, I can't print. Every time I try, it says 'Can't find printer'. I've even lifted the printer and placed it in front of the monitor, but the computer still says he can't find it...

    ============== =

    Customer: I have problems printing in red...

    ===============

    Tech support: What's on your monitor now, ma'am?
    Customer: A teddy bear my boyfriend bought for me at Woolies.

    ===============

    Customer: My keyboard is not working anymore.
    Tech support: Are you sure it's plugged into the computer?
    Customer: No. I can't get behind the computer.
    Tech support: Pick up your keyboard and walk 10 paces back.
    Customer:! OK
    Tech support: Did the keyboard come with you?
    Customer: Yes
    Tech support: That means the keyboard is not plugged in. Is there another keyboard?
    Customer: Yes, there's another one here. Ah...that one does work...

    ===============

    Tech support: Your password is the small letter 'a' as in apple, a capital letter V as in Victor, the number 7..
    Customer: Is that 7 in capital letters ?

    == =============

    Customer: I can't get on the Internet.
    Tech support: Are you sure you used the right password?

    Tech support: Can you tell me what the password was?
    Customer: Five stars.

    ===============

    Tech support: What anti-virus program do you use?
    Customer: Netscape.
    Tech support: That's not an anti-virus program.
    Customer: Oh, sorry...Internet Explorer.

    ===============

    Customer: I have a huge problem. A friend has placed a screen saver on my computer, but every time I move the mouse, it disappears.

    ===============

    Tech support: How may I help you?
    Customer: I'm writing my first e-mail.
    Tech support: OK, and what seems to be the problem?
    Customer: Well, I have the letter 'a' in the address, but how do I get the circle around it?

    ===============

    A woman customer called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer.
    Tech support: Are you running it under windows?
    Customer: 'No, my desk is next to the door, but that is a good point. The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a window, and his printer is working fine.'

    ===============

    And last but not least...

    Tech support: 'Okay Colin, let's press the control and escape keys at the same time That brings up a task list in the middle of the screen. Now type the letter 'P' to bring up the Program Manager.'
    Customer: I don't have a P.
    Tech support: On your keyboard, Colin.
    Customer: What do you mean?
    Tech support: 'P'.....on your keyboard, Colin.

    you know you're a geek when you've cracked your own wireless network 50 times because you're bored...and each time it makes you just as giddy as the first.

    You know you're a geek when you touch any gadget and you suddenly, or instinctively, knew how to use it even though the details isn't clear, but you know how to put it into work.
