Laptops

I am singing the airport blues


So it is Monday night and and I am ready to go home. It has been a long weekend. I had some consulting to do and I just finished up. I left for the airport and realized I needed to fill up my gas tank. There is never a gas station close to an airport when you need one. I think the rental car companies have some gig going so they can charge 8.00 per gallon.

I finally arrived at the airport and sat down next to a group of Laptops. They ranged from IBM, ACER, Toshiba, Gateway, Apple, and Averatec. I looked at every single one of them to glimpse what operating system they were running. One was MAC OSX Tiger, and all of the other laptops were Windows XP/Windows Vista. Not a single Linux OS in the lot of them.

One laptop suit was playing Minesweeper. Another laptop suit was fudging excel reports and the Apple was synching her i-pod. I was bored so I turned on infrared on my computer and low and behold 3 of the computers were in range. I turned on my firewall, opened up notepad and sent one of the laptops a text file telling them to turn off their infrared as it is a security risk. Seconds later the laptop suit jumped up and started looking around. I almost fell out of my chair laughing but held it in.

I have the airport blues…I should be home in 3.5 hours.

What IT fun have you had in an airport or at the office to have a chuckle? I want to know.
