This is a question IT Support

Our IT support guy has been in the job since 1979, and never misses an opportunity to pick up a mouse and say "Hello computer" into it, Star Trek-style. Tell us your tales from the IT support cupboard, either from within or without.

Anyone for coffee?
Its probably in here already and once a common occurance.

I needed to setup some software remotely for someone but I needed her to install pcAnywhere first. It was her first experience of a cd and I asked her to put it in the cd-drawer. After several seconds she came back to me and said she could find it. I talked her through finding the cd eject button. Down the phone I heard the drawer slide open followed by the comment "Oh, you mean the cup holder!".

this has been mentioned
and whoever mentioned it was saying that it was found painted in a cave wall in Gibraltar and was believed to date back to 12000BC.

First experience of a CD? that sounds like complete bollocks to me.

I think it could be true
A cd tray could hold a cup if it was empty. And made of very light plastic.

They will actually hold a big mug full of coffee
I've got an old one screwed to my desk as a handy fold away cup holder, works fine.
