    Tech: What's the problem?
    User: There is smoke coming out of the power supply.
    Tech: You'll need a new power supply.
    User: No, I don't! I just need to change the startup files.
    Tech: Sir, the power supply is faulty. You'll need to replace it.
    User: No way! Someone told me that I just needed to change the startup files and it will fix the problem! All I need is for you to tell me the command.
    Ten minutes later, the user is still persistent that he is right. The tech is frustrated and give up.
    Tech: Sorry, Sir. We don't normally tell our customers this, but there is an undocumented DOS command that will fix the problem.
    User: I knew it!
    Tech: Just add the line LOAD NOSMOKE.COM at the end of the CONFIG.SYS. Let me know how it goes. Ten minutes later.
    User: It didn't work. The power supply is still smoking.
    Tech: Well, what version of DOS are you using?
    User: MS-DOS 6.22.
    Tech: That's your problem there. That version of DOS didn't come with NOSMOKE. Contact Microsoft and ask them for a patch that will give you the file. Let me know how it goes. One hour later.
    User: I need a new power supply.
    Tech: How did you come to that conclusion?
    User: Well, I rang Microsoft and told him about what you said, and he started asking questions about the make of power supply.
    Tech: Then what did he say?
    User: He told me that my power supply isn't compatible with NOSMOKE.

    it would have been a whole lot funnier if it was real.

    anyway, it gives me a good idea, just give the idiot what he wants, if it doesn't work after trying it his way, then, he/she will concede defeat :D

    Really i would not be surprised if someone actually acted that way. I mean I've seen countless clueless people like that....especially in Best Buy and Circuit City stores.

    Nah can definitly be through, wouldn't be surprised

    Often have to tell an end-user lies so he shuts up until we fix the problem the right way
    (I think I made a user do a spybot scan once while we were doing a server reboot once "I guess you were right it was a spyware sir'' )

    Yeah I must admit I watched a couple more episodes last night and am liking the thing less and less. That woman is always shouting, very annoying, she`s a terrible actor, or it may be the script. A lot of the stuff is getting very predictable. I enjoyed the first two episodes so much, I thought they were all gonna be great.

    The two guys still have some good moments though, I think.

    I gotta admit I didn't expect that kinda fall. :D

    Reminds me of something: once a friend of mine had trouble connecting using wifi at the university library. Another guy we know had the same problem, but since his laptop was the one that was "properly configured" (didn't even bother to check), he said he should transfer the configuration to my friend's laptop. Using an HMDI to DVI cable.

    Wait until you get to the no-smoking episode. It's freaking legendary!
