Harold the computer man

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Harold the computer guy, to come over. Harold clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a minimum service call.

As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?" He replied, "It was an ID ten T error." I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID ten T error? What's that .. in case I need to fix it again?"

Harold grinned.... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"

"No," I replied.

"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."

So I wrote down .... I D 1 O T.
I used to like Harold.

When I worked for Hewlett-Packard, we'd send the new guys out for that elusive ID10T diode. They even wrote it down sometimes, and would get shuffled from department to department to find one. heh heh

I used to see lots of those.

Now it's mainly PEBKAC errors. (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair.)
