I remember fuming about one graduate of a computer science degree that asked
me for help starting her computer. Turned out she'd left a floppy disk in, and
the computer couldn't get past that to the OS on the hard drive.
That sort of thing really irritates me. I got in trouble over that one, as
I posted about it on my blog, and she found out about it and complained to my
higher-ups. Ah well...
