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.

* Customer: "There are smoke and flames coming from my computer."
* Tech Support: "Uh, hang up, unplug the computer from the wall, and call the local fire department."
* Customer: "That's not the problem. I need to know how to do a backup. Fastest possible method."
Too funny

* Tech Support: "Ok, we're going to check your modem settings. First thing we need to do is make sure all programs are closed."
* Customer: "How do I know if everything is closed?"
* Me: "Make sure all windows are closed."
* Customer: "But...I'm in the basement. I don't have any windows here."

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....
