Cool site, thanks.

I was calling to sign up with a new DSL provider. When the guy asked what operating system I was using, I said, "Linux." I was put on hold for five minutes, and then a supervisor came back and told me, "You can't use Linux to connect to the Internet. It's a hacker tool, anyway." I almost fell out of my chair.
lmao

The programming page is a riot! I'm embarrassed to have seen a couple of bonehead things I've done myself a few years back when in school

The tech support calls from hell triggered a flashback to my tech support days and my co-workers say they found me on the floor sobbing and screaming for my mommy....
