Funny story

by skurtz In reply to Sandee's blog

I'll start my blog with my favorite IT support story.  Someone
called for help, because their computer was locked up.  After
listening to what was wrong, I suggested they do a
CTRL-ALT-DELETE  to stop the locked application +/or reboot the
computer.  This caller insisted that CTRL-ALT-DELETE does NOT
work, that it NEVER has worked.  I said, well, this combination
will bring up a new window to help you close the application.  NO,
she said, that does not work, it ONLY works when I do ATL-CTRL-DELETE -
SEE that did it!!  I said, "hold one moment please" as I had to
laugh out loud and didn't want to insult them.
