Reminds me...

The PCs in our seminar rooms can only be accessed by registering with the network. When the network is down, you can forget your presentations etc. Now they came finally around to providing a local registration. And added a note to the PC:

"If network registration fails, register locally. If you forgot name or password for local registration, send e-mail to..."

dumbfuck.tutor@idiots.at, or so

It never ceases to amaze me just how stupid these people are, just when I think it can't get any worse, someone finds a new low to baffle me with.

Did I mention that my browser doesn't work?

Tizzy
03-02-2005, 11:02:00
Yep, at the same time I mentioend I don't care

Drekkus

So what did you tell him, tizzy?

Tizzy
03-02-2005, 11:04:19
Nothing, I'm hoping he goes away and does something so incredibly stupid he disappears off the face of the planet.
I think it's quite likely

I would reply with, 'If you can read this besides being a blithering idiot you are also wasting my time. Many Thanks A. Tech support (not your mum!)'

maybe his agenda does not work in outlook

Tizzy
03-02-2005, 11:09:49
More likely his brain doesn't work in his head

fix it

Tizzy
03-02-2005, 11:15:37
:bash: That's how I'll fix it

Well it doesn't say it's totally down. It may be slow, or losing stuff, or something.

Maybe the email was sent last December, and you've only just received it.

maybe external mail isn't working and internal is....

help the client, his outness does not work.

Tizzy
03-02-2005, 11:40:32
Nope he meant the program wasn't working, he couldn't use Outlook to do anything.
Apart from email me to tell me about it apparently :bash:

miester gandertak
03-02-2005, 11:41:44
did he use outlook to sent you that email?

miester gandertak
03-02-2005, 11:42:09
the client is always right right?

Tizzy

Either that or his psychic emailing skills are very advanced

Dyl Ulenspiegel
03-02-2005, 12:33:12
Or his eudora.

miester gandertak
03-02-2005, 12:35:20
or his webmail

My officemate once got email from the people that we have to talk to to talk to our IT people for us (its a government bureaucracy thing), letting him know that they had contacted IT and they were working on fixing his problem getting email.

Naturally, he was totally in the dark until it was fixed, at which point the polite "hey, just wanted to let you know we're working on it" message was useless.

Only because there are bad consequences to putting holes in his skull (bad for Tizzy, it may be a relief to him).

Tizzy
03-02-2005, 14:38:14
It would be a relief for me too! :psychotic:

When I can't remember my password, the Reset Request must be faxed in paper (not eFaxed) with boss signature.
Of course I don't keep a module always available, and when needed I should download it from the intranet. Except that not remembering the pwd I can't login...
Dya think that's a problem? Of course not: have a colleague download and print it for you! (and I can ask it my cowie, as he happens to be the one who WROTE such procedure :D)...

That's to say: of course the paradox is desperately funny, but did you consider the possibilty that he accessed his internal mailbox and sent that email from a cowie's PC (entailing the problem lies in his local client and not with his mailbox/account on the mail server)?


sorry, didn't mean to spoil the show... :cute:

"Go home" is always the best choice.

I don't know, the 3rd option was pretty good

Whatever makes the voices stop badgering you is the right choice.

You shoud have written a letter telling him that email is crucial due to the postal strikes.

Tell him to reformat.

Outlook is a great tool, I use it in the office. But you need some other things to make it "feel right". The task manager and swearing.
