So, did the user tell you what the fix was or is that part of your angryment?

I am hungry. I usually have lucnh early, but with the time change that would have been too early. So, yeah.

User on forum: My DVD Drive is giving me an error of "application not found" when I try to run a disc in it. The computer recognizes the drive and even reinstalls it when I uninstall it and restart the computer.
Me: Yes, this is exactly the problem I'm having!
Tech Support on forum: Have you tried <list of instructions>
User: That didn't work.
Tech Support: Try <more instructions involving registry>
User: That didn't work but I figured out what the problem was and it was something so simple I couldn't believe it. Took me two seconds to fix it.
Me: *fumes*

I come across that sort of thing all the time. What's even worse, though is people barging in to troubleshooting conversations with "I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, THIS ISN'T A PROBLEM FOR ME", as though that somehow concludes things to everyone's satisfaction.

They didn't say how they fixed it, and moreover stated that it was easy and/or obvious.

That's pretty much the fix I did. I took a DVD Drive out of an old computer and moved it over to my wife's and she can now run them again. I had to get some different cables from the old computer as new computers evidently don't use that wide gray ribbon-style cable to connect drives to the motherboard anymore and her computer has this compact plug instead. Fortunately her motherboard had a plug for the ribbon though. Maybe some more tech-savvy people can enlighten me.

At the place I used to work there was a guy who would burst out into loud song. You'd be trying to concentrate on spreadsheet formulas while "YOU PAINTED UP YOUR LIPS AND ROLLED AND CURLED YOUR TINTED HAIR. RUBY ARE YOU CONTEMPLATING GOING OUT SOMEWHERE. THE SHADOW ON THE WALL TELLS ME THE SUN IS GOING DOWN. OH RUUUUUUUUUUBEEEEEEEEE, DON'T TAKE YOUR LOVE TO TOWN. YEEEEEEEHOOOOOOOO" is hollered full-pitch across the office. The guy thought he had this amazing singing voice, is why he did it.

The wide gray ribbon is the old IDE standard interface, while I'm guessing the compact plug is the newer SATA interface.

I can see it now.

Coworker looks over at Skimba in mid scratch. Quizzically he asks, "Skimba, are you--"

"ME SKIMBA," comes the shouted reply, "ME MONKEY GIRL!!! OOOH OOH OOH AH AH AH AH!!" And then she winks.

:D

I used to sing along with the radio at my old job, until the day my boss said "are you going to sing all day?" That really took the wind out of my sails (even though I don't have the greatest singing voice).

One of my coworkers told me I should have asked the boss "are you going to be bitchy all day." :lol:

Just once, I would like to be able to eat a tin of smoked oysters without getting any of the oil on my clothing. :(

Ugh Ihave hadmy hours cut back to part-time, for minimum wage. I've complared the incoming money to the outgoing, and I need a job if I'm going to do anything besides travel to work, work and eat. Like, after those expenditures I'll be making about $30 a week or so. So I shall have to either find another part-time job and juggle the two, or find a single, full-time job. That's a shame, because I actually like it where I am and wouldn't have minded staying.

fork poverty. When I get back I'm going to study Law like everybody else.

I'd be tempted to bang on the stall door and ask "is everything coming out all right?" :) But that's just me.

Or crumple up a big wad of paper towels, soak them in the sink, toss the soaking wad into the stall, and run!
I love this post so much I'm going to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant!

My mom's solution is to say, "hey, do you need scizzors in there?"

Hahahaha not quite. It's to cut the poop log. From your butt. Because it's hanging from your butt and that's why it's taking you so long to finish pooping.

Ohhhh. See, if I were the one taking forever in the bathroom and your mom said that to me, my sheer confusion would prolong my time in there by at least a minute.

Man, I hate cold weather :x I know it's not nearly as cold as all of you guys in the North get, but this cold I feel through my bones. No amount of clothing makes me warm, I just feel tired of having to sleep under so many blankets and all the extra clothes during the day are a hassle. And I wake up every morning with a sore throat from breathing freaking cold, dry air all night.

I didn't want to see it again. It makes me think of endless bum-anacondas, slithering and slithering until you have to open the door just to give it somewhere else to go.
