Techy Fun: I bet you think I’m a right…

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

*Ring Ring*

Me:”Hello, tech support”
Peon:”Hi – I can’t log into the system” (that’s helpful!)
Me:”Did you receive your username and password”
Peon:”Yes. It’s xxxx and yyyyy”
Me:”Good. What seems to be the problem?”
Peon:”I don”t know what to put in the boxes” (a bit more description would have been nice, but let’s see where this is going..)
Me:”What does it say next to the boxes?”
Peon:”One says username and the other says password”
Me:”Ok, in the box next to username, put your username which is xxxx as in the email”
Peon:”Yes..” (and, at this point, I am hearing the penny slowly drop)
Me:”And in the box next to password, put your password which is yyyy as in the email”
Peon:”Thanks *giggles* I bit you think I”m a right idiot don’t you?”
Me:”Not at all sir” (I actually think your a whole idiot and not just the right side of one!).

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
