Techy Fun: Newspaper: The day PC meant Perfectly Confused

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.

From the Daily Mail, Friday December 31 2004:

A technical helpline for owners of new computers was flooded with more than 25,000 calls over Christmas.

PC Servicecall, which handles queries from customers of Dixons, Currys, PC World and The Link, said it received an average of one call every 21 seconds on Boxing Day. Most related to cables – mainly with the device not being properly plugged in. Others were about power supply, software installation and a failure to find the ‘on’ switch.

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".
