RANDOM THOUGHTS: SCOTT'S RULES
Scott’s Rules of Computer Repair: 1. No matter how many different ways you turn a twisted wire, it cannot be untwisted. 2. The cable that you unplug is not the one that you meant to unplug. 3. When you reinsert the cable that you just unplugged, it’s the wrong one. 4. You cannot possibly find the cable that you wanted to unplug. 5. If tech support techs you to follow a series of steps, and provides a nice online graphic, one of the steps will not show up on your computer. There will be fewer folders and files displayed than support claims exist. 6. When tech support says that if it doesn't hear from you in seven days, the company will assume your problem has been fixed, it means the problem hasn't been fixed.

New York was a mess during the recent blizzard and its two feet of snow. Traffic was a mess, people couldn’t get anywhere. In short, about normal. But really, the problem with New Yorkers is they take acts of nature as an affront to their rightful place in the universe. Still the holidays have wound down, the subway rats have put away their colorful garb. The winos have stopped with their holiday greetings and are back to “Buddy, can you spare a four dollars for a cappuccino?” Last modified on Sunday, 16 June 2013
