Today's "can I slap them" moment has arrived early.
Someone has emailed IT Helpdesk to ask for a flipchart and pens for their meeting.

IT?!! Pens?!!!

I got asked yesterday if I knew how to remove the covering to the ceiling lights.

You know, because the lights use electricity and all, that must be IT.

mr.G
14-12-2005, 13:21:00
not because you are the all mighty?

You're not trying to hide your cluelessness at work now, are you?

Venom

Always.

Oh yeah, anything with wires is IT, didn't you know that?

Did you say shoot them or hit them with an axe?

mr.G
14-12-2005, 13:58:44
the axe effect?

I swung a monitor by the VGA cable like a mighty mace and attempted to smash his face in. He ran away before I could get the mace up to speed and I sure as hell wasn't going to run after him.

mr.G
14-12-2005, 14:44:21
no you did not.

Venom
14-12-2005, 14:46:05
I did, but it was only my spare monitor. A 15" flat panel.

Hope you got the extended warranty -- those things are a bitch to fix.

Venom
14-12-2005, 15:17:22
Extended warranties are for suckers.

Until you need one.

MoSe

i emailed IT a few weeks ago about the printer printing up a cover page everytime I print everything, and no response

I wonder if they are laughing at me at their internet site.

Was the person from acadamia?

Many Unis in the US the IT group is responsible for all presentation materials for all clasrooms. So Microphones, computers, etc, but also overheads, dry erase pens, etc.

ALthough its such a pain in the ass to get them to do anything most of us just bring our own stuff and hope there is a mic and USB port in the room.

Owww yeah, Venom sure was a lot more comforting when he was threatening to disembowel people and the like.
