Computer humour


My 79 year old dad still has a 1984 IBM PC XT (8086) running DOS 3.31, 640k of RAM, and 8 color monitor. And the tractor feed dot matrix printer he originally bought with it. Still uses it for printing mailing labels for Christmas cards. :sunglasses:

You email your son in his room to tell him that dinner is ready, and he emails you back, 'What's for dinner dad?'

Your daughter sets up a web site to sell Girl Scout Cookies.

You chat several times a day with a stranger from South Africa, but you haven't spoken to your next door neighbor yet this year.

True Story From Computer Front-line Support

Back when I worked as a PC technician I had a client who gave us his computer to fix because it was riddled with malware. One of the standard things we do is clean the cache, empty the recycle bin, scan for and remove viruses.

When we gave him his computer back he freaked out on us demanding to know what we did with his most sensitive files. We told him we didn't delete any personal files and he told us we did. Apparently he kept his most important documents in the recycle bin?!

We tried to explain what the recycle bin was actually for and he just didn't want to listen and didn't care or know to care. That was his sensitive file folder.
