Me: "Okay now, right-click on that file, and then click on 'copy' on the menu that pops up..."
Me: "Now, right-click somewhere on your desktop, but not on another icon or window, and then click on 'paste' on that same pop-up menu."
C: "<dramatic sigh> I gotta say that this is way too difficult..."
I quickly dispatched another tech to go to her desk, as I knew that, otherwise, this was going to be a long, long, long call...
Hahahaha... that is so me! ....okay, maybe not the singing part....
So, tomorrow Krista and I turn in our application for an apartment... it has emerald green carpet! hahah... it rawks! And we can move it as soon as we're approved, with no charge for December... sweeeet.
Then we're gonna go out an' visit my mom! I haven't seen her in ages, and Krista's never met her. I think this will go well. It's a shame that my bro has to work tho - I'm sure mom would like to see him too... ah well - next time.
Now, I go back to kickin' intercitykitty's butt at MSN Minesweeper!
Oh yeah... feeling so much better today! I even woke up at six, but decided that I would have to be insane to get up at that hour... then decided that even the insane wouldn't do that, so I went back to bed. No more fever, no more touchy skin, no more achy everything! Thank you to all who wished me well - it seems to have worked! You all rawk!
current mood: happy

10:34p - Oh... my... retard...
C: "I'm trying to log in, but there's nothing here."
Me: "Nothing...... on the screen? The screen is black?"
C: "No, there's just a blue screen. I inserted my card in here and that thing went away."
Me: <refraining from saying, "oh... the thing!"> "There's nothing but a blue screen now?"
C: "Yep, blue screen, with this white thing in the middle (company logo background)."
Me: "That's all you've got there?"
C: "Yep, and it's just sitting here, not doing anything."
Me: "Hmmm..." as I ponder why his PC would pause or lock up before even asking for his password.
C: "I dunno why we have to use these stupid things - they never work right."
Me: "...so you've just got a blue screen, and a white square with a yellow swirly design?"
C: "Yeah, it says NetMeeting Remote Desktop Sharing."
Me: ".......what?? The (company logo background) says that??"
C: "No, that's what the little icon at the bottom says when I hold the mouse over it."
Me: <shaking head> "Icon? I thought there wasn't anything on the screen except the white square in the middle."
C: "Just this icon... and a couple of others at the bottom here."
Me: <mute the call, so as to not alarm the client with the dull thuds of my head repeatedly hitting the desk> "Would you please right-click on that icon, and select 'Activate Remote Desktop Sharing' please."
Me: <connect to his computer via NetMeeting> "Well, looks like there's a lot of icons here - My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places, the Recycle Bin..."
C: "Yeah, so how do I make this thing work??"
Me: "Well, first off, you get yourself some liquid paper, and white out all those pesky little icons on the screen there - you don't seem to realize that they're there in the first place, and when you finally do, I don't think you'll really know what to do with them anyway...."
current mood: indescribable
