    Default Easiest IT Fix

    Went to print my boarding passes etc off sons PC before we left.
    Printer been dead for ages he said.

    Took me 5 seconds to delete the Network Printer and default select the Local. (He has no network and only one printer)

    He never was interested in even that much of a troubleshooting exercise....

    Like those ones

    Had an easy one a few weeks back, this guy had brought a new monitor Quite large, well apart from the fact he had every input with a cable going to various places ( wasn't the problem) His actual problem was it wouldn't go. He had someone who "knew all about Computers" look and they couldn't figure it out.

    First thing I looked at -- REALLY -- picked up the power plug and plugged it in - Surprise - it went

    ^That 240 V is terribly unreliable - only a couple of inches 'twixt plug and socket and it goes out on strike.
    Probably faulty electricity
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    Piroska it just goes to prove we "oldies" are not brain dead despite some "sneering" comments from younger generation.
