>> Always the same questions:
>> - My computer doesn't boot, why?? And what shall I do now??
>> - My computer always shuts down after x minutes, why?? And what shall I do now??

My brother in law lives half a world a way, and he still calls me ....
= distance is irrelevant

>> An my favourite question:
>> - Do you know how I could do this in microsoft word??

My favourite answer, yes, but not in this old version.... (They always got the wrong version...)

And one more thing... When I say: just click here, and here and it's fixed... thats when the screen goes black, or the harddisc goes eeeeeeeeeeek! or this funny smoke poors out the back of the computer.

Why would one volontarily submit to such risks, with no insurance and no pay.. no way.Eek! | :eek:
