    For Us Not-So Computer Savvy Oldies

    Sometimes we have trouble with our computers.

    I had a problem yesterday, so I called Eric, the 13 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 work it out.'
    So I wrote down:
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    ID10T

    I used to like Eric, the little bastard.

    I also like to tell my friends when I have been called to 'fix' their computers that it had a PICNIC error

    Another one is PEBKAC.

    Those nerdy types have many highly amusing ways of putting down us normal people...

    We have ID ten T errors at work all the time

    Add that to the people who don't understand that their phone is 7 years old, has a large amount of physical damage to it and they think that WARRANTY is still going to cover them getting a new phone for free. Or that we're just going to give them a new phone because they've had their plan for however many number of years. Doesn't work like that!

    Oh, they just don't get it: planned obsolescence is here to stay. What's this 7-year business and misguided ideas of loyalty. Keep turning the treadmill - it's progress.
    Hm!
