This is a question Oldies vs Computers

As someone who is "good with computers" I get a lot of calls from people who've got problems. Some of them even have problems with their computers.

Back many years ago working for a telecoms company, I was called to a senior secretary who "had put a disk into the drive and couldn't get it out". She had one of the first Mac II machines with two drive slots. But only one drive.

Opening up the case revealed stacks of floppy disks that she'd been posting through the hole in the case for weeks. She'd only decided there was a problem when her boss wanted one of them back...

The restart button
My workmate (a very nice chap, but pretty computer illiterate) was having problems with his computer. As usual it was me he called out to to help him, and - as usual - I called out to him "Have you restarted?"

"Yes" he replied, "Nothing happened"

As I walked over there to help he said "It did start up awfully fast"

Yep, he'd turned just the screen off, and back on again.
