The 10 year old Computer Geek

By CG IT ·
got this from my wife who works at JPL.

was having trouble with my computer. So I called Richard, the 11 >year old next door whose bedroom looks like 'Mission Control,' and >asked him to come over.
>Richard clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
>As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was >wrong?" He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."
>I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID >ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again."
>Richard grinned.... "Haven't you ever heard of ID ten T errors before?"
>"No," I replied. "Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."
>So I wrote down: I D 1 0 T ... I used to like the little ****....
