I don't mind having fixing people's machine if I have the time, but it's the "help us do our homework" request that I'm tired with. I have an uncle who's working with kids, and every now and then, I get a request from them to help his protege's with their programming homework. I always hope for the best (as in help with parts of the program) but usually it's the worst (as in help me write the program) Sigh | :sigh:
