The Technically Challenged

The Technologically

1. Compaq is considering changing the command
“Press Any Key” to Press
Return Key” because of the flood of calls asking where the “Any” key

2. AST technical support had a caller complaining that her mouse was
hard to
control with the dust cover on. The cover turned out to be the plastic bag
the mouse was packaged in.

3. Another AST customer was asked to send a copy of her defective
A few days later a letter arrived from the customer along with photocopies
of the floppies.

4. A Dell technician advised his customer to put his troubled floppy
back in
the drive and close the door. The customer asked the tech to hold on and
was heard putting the phone down, getting up and crossing the room to close
the door to his room.

5. Another Dell customer called to say he couldn’t get his computer
to fax
anything. After 40 minutes of trouble-shooting, the technician discovered
the man was trying to fax a piece of paper by holding it in front of the
monitor screen and hitting the “send” key.

6. Yet another Dell customer called to complain that his keyboard

11. Another IBM customer had troubles installing software and rang
support. “I put in the first disk, and that was OK. It said to put in the
second disk, and had some problems with the disk. When it said to put in
the third disk, I couldn’t even fit it in…” The user hadn’t realized
“Insert Disk 2” meant to remove Disk 1 first.

12. In a similar incident, a customer had followed the instructions
installing software. The instructions said to remove the disk from its

Smart Appliances


With plans in full swing for the appliances
of tomorrow–from
networked water heaters to refrigerators that order groceries–
we consumers must prepare for the inevitability of these sci-fi
devices in our everyday lives.

But smart appliances may do more than save time. Our top ten
reasons to dread them:

1. Over the limit: The bathroom scale keeps telling the fridge
to stop ordering food.

2. Tattle snooze: Your smart pillow talks to your PC, which
emails your boss with a message that, yep, you’ve overslept

3. Brand name: Not only does your stovetop grill know when
steak is cooked to your exact specifications, but it sears a
nice flying Windows logo onto each side.

4. Buying on spec: Sunglasses combine UV protection with real-
time stock quotes, but laugh maniacally when you approach
margin calls.

5. Car talk: Your dashboard computer insists on making blonde
jokes about your driving.

6. Rotten sense of humor: The perky “kitchen assistant,” an
animated onscreen spatula, keeps calling your mobile phone
and asking, “Is your refrigerator running?”

7. Lack of privacy: Your mailbox keeps asking why you get so
many plain brown packages.

8. No dim bulbs: Your lamps are so full of bright ideas you
have to pay for their MENSA memberships.

9. High maintenance: Your appliances secretly open a joint bank
account for repairman kickbacks.

10. Anticompetitive practices: Your Microsoft coffeemaker
monopolizes the countertop.

Today I will be Online

I Don’t Wanna

I don’t wanna do the dishes
I don’t wanna do the wash
I sprinkled clothes a week ago
And now my iron is lost!!

I don’t wanna rattle pots
I don’t wanna rattle pans
I see the mail light flashin’
I wanna chat with friends!!

Oh the tables need some dustin’
and the floor could sure be mopped
But I know if I get started
there’ll be no place to stop

The closets are so full
things are falling off the shelves
I wish for cleaning fairies
and magic little elves.

They could sprinkle fairy dust
and twitch their little nose
The windows would be sparkling
I would have no dirty clothes

Oh I know that I’m just dreamin’
My head is in the sky
I must cook that meat that’s greying
and bake that apple pie

The Hubby needs a bath
Doggy needs attention
Oh.. the other way around I mean
my brain is in suspension

I am runnin’ round in circles
I am gettin’ nothin’ done,
I keep thinking of my web
I am missing all the fun!!!

Well I know I’m not addicted
though I hear that all the time
But I guess this stuff can wait on me
Cause Today I’ll Be On Line!!!

Let us scan your old photos, before they fade away

Husband 1.0

Husband 1.0

Dear Tech

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and
noticed that the new program began making unexpected
changes to the accounting software, severely limiting
access to wardrobe, flower, and jewelry applications
that operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. No mention
of this phenomenon was included in the product

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalls many other valuable
programs such as DinnerDancing 7.5, CruiseShip 2.3, and
OperaNight 6.1 and installs new, undesirable programs such
as PokerNight 1.3, SaturdayFootball 5.0, Golf 2.4 and
ClutterEverywhere 4.5. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs,
and invariably crashes the system. Under no circumstances
will it run DiaperChanging 14.1 or HouseCleaning

I’ve tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix Husband 1.0, but
this all purpose utility is of limited effectiveness. Can

you help please?!?!


Dear Jane:

This is a very common problem women complain about, but
is mostly due to a primary misconception.

Many people upgrade from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0
with no idea that Boyfriend 5.0 is merely an ENTERTAINMENT
package. However, Husband 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and
was designed by its creator to run as few applications as
possible. Further, you cannot purge Husband 1.0 and return
to Boyfriend 5.0 , because Husband 1.0 is not designed
to do this.

Hidden operating files within your system would cause
Boyfriend 5.0 to emulate Husband 1.0, so nothing is gained.
It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program
files from the system, once installed.

Any new program files can only be installed once per year,
as Husband 1.0 has severely limited memory. Error messages
are common, and a normal part of Husband 1.0. In desperation
to play some of their “old time” favorite applications, or
to get new applications to work, some women have tried to
install Boyfriend 6.0, or Husband 2.0. However, these women
end up with more problems than encountered with Husband

Look in your manual under “Warnings: Divorce/Child Support”.
You will notice that this program runs very poorly, and
comes bundled with HeartBreak 1.3.

I recommend you keep Husband 1.0, and just learn the quirks
of this strange and illogical system. Having Husband 1.0
installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire
section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPFs). This
is a wonderful feature of Husband 1.0, secretly installed
by the parent company as an integral part of the operating

Husband 1.0 must assume ALL responsibility for ALL faults
and problems, regardless of root cause. To activate this
great feature enter the command “C:\ I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME”
Sometimes Tears 6.2 must be run simultaneously while entering
the command. Husband 1.0 should then run the applications
Apologize 12.3 and Flowers/Chocolates 7.8.

TECH TIP! Avoid excessive use of this feature. Overuse can
create additional and more serious GPFs, and ultimately YOU
may have to give a C:\>I APOLOGIZE command before the system
will return to normal operations. Overuse can also cause
Husband 1.0 to default to GrumpySilence 2.5, or worse yet,
Beer 6.0.

Beer 6.0 is a very bad program that causes Husband 1.0 to
create FatBelly files and SnoringLoudly wave files that are
very hard to delete. Save yourself some trouble by following
this tech tip!

Just remember! The system will run smoothly, and take the
blame for all GPFs, but because of this fine feature it can
only intermittently run all the applications Boyfriend 5.0 ran.
Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited
memory and cannot learn new applications quickly.

Consider buying additional software to improve performance.
I personally recommend HotFood 3.0, Lingerie 5.3 and Patience
10.1. Used in conjunction, these utilities can really help
keep Husband 1.0 running smoothly.

After several years of use, Husband 1.0 will become familiar
and you will find many valuable embedded features such as
FixesBrokenThings 2.1, Snuggling 4.2 and BestFriend

A final word of caution! Do NOT, under any circumstances,
install MotherInLaw 1.0. This is not a supported application,
and will cause selective shut down of the operating system.
Husband 1.0 will run only Fishing 9.4 and Hunting 5.2 until
MotherInLaw 1.0 is uninstalled. I hope these notes have

Thank you for choosing to install Husband 1.0 and we here at
Tech Support wish you the best of luck in coming years. We
trust you will learn to fully enjoy this

A High Tech Prayer

A Hi-Tech

As I boot up my PC,
my modem dialing next to me,

I ask the Lord, give me a sign….
Will I ever get on-line?????

If you’d kindly let me
I’ll byte no more than I can chew.

I’ll surf the waves amid the Net,
with my mouse, my loyal pet.

And through each window
I will see
the websites that are offered me.

Resisting any chat room’s
I’ll download only what is pure.

If system errors don’t
I vow to read all my e-mail.

If you save me from a crash,
I’ll dump my games into the trash.

Just please don’t take my CD-ROM!
Thank you Lord, God
