Do you guys get this sort of thing from your friends and family? It frustrates me a little sometimes, but I guess it would be the same the other way around if I had dumb questions about.... scrapbooking.... or.... stamping..... or.... cross-stitch


If the person implicated actually reads this... then... too bad.... :-P

At our house the routers in my room, so therefore in everyone else logic everytime they mess up settings etc on their computers I've done something to the 'modem' (no matter how many times I say its a router, just like with 'Clock' and 'Hub/Switch')

At school I get asked to fix everyones stuff too, from cell phones, PDAs to the internet connection! Politely reminding people from that category I DONT CONTROL THE SCHOOL.

At work I get asked nothing because everyone else knows what they are actually doing (YAY!) Work my little semi-hated sancturary...
