LOL, awesome. better than awesome. pittsburgh!
i work in IT, so this is fantastic. THANKS DOUG!
This made my day!
Funny… the IT guy here tried shaking my laptop when it stopped working. Now I know he was using a tried and trusted method thousands of years old!
This one was just great.
Could be even legendary, if “rebooting it” was substituted with ITC classic mem “turning it off’n’on again”. But that wouldn’t fit in, would it?
Ah, the good old abacus – never used it.
The comic made me laugh out loud – thanks.
It WASN’T the Dark Ages afterall – they did manage to cope with Y1K bug …
My dad once got told by IT to try rebooting his computer and, being the techno-wiz he is, rang them up asking if they seriously wanted him to kick his computer (it works with my old-school TV, so why not with a computer ey?)
Reminds me of this sketch:
Wanted: One Chickens World Cup Vuvuzela comic.
lOL. thanks for making me laugh. I enjoyed it.
Was this the stone ages or the feather ages. classic
Reminds me of the notion of “whack-a-cam”.
Seems like hundreds of Sony CAM owner were receiving the same error message and could not get their CAMs to work – not even through Sony repair. Then somebody discovered that merely giving the CAM a good whack with your palm on one side would suddenly cause the CAM to spring back into life.
Eventually someone managed to discover the underlying problem. A rubber pinch roller would ride up its shaft when the retaining ring failed…. giving the error. The whack would most times reseat the pinch roller… and it would spring back into action. This triggered all sort of discussion about how to permanently fix the problem with stuff around the house – sorry no duct tape.
Key question though was why Sony repair had no idea about the problem.
And when that doesn’t work punch it in the neck. That was my favorite to tell people. “but it’s a computer there is no neck.” “well there’s your problems then huh.”
lol… too funny Doug, too funny :0)
Ooo, this is a fun one! Think you can balance my e-banking checkbook with a similar move somehow?
I love the obligatory arrogant eye roll of the IT chicken in the last panel. It’s just like a human IT guy! haha
