Tech Support tale o't'd

2008-01-10 19:17:44.484964+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

From the Festool Owner's Group thread on trying to debug why a dust collector isn't starting automatically:

Can't resist. Many eons ago I did tech support for a computer company. We called ourselves easy to use because you could abbreviate commands to the first three characters, which usually meant the subsequent characters were ignored. If you were typing in data and wanting to start fresh with a clean slate, you typed the command SCRATCH or just SCR. The computer responded with "Ready for input".

Well, one day my phone rang and a very distraught customer said "I was having trouble with the computer and got really mad. I typed in "Screw you" and it came back with "Ready for input." So what do I do now?"
