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.

Internet Down!
I once worked for an ISP who will remain unnamed. Not only was I the Helpdesk Manager but I was the last line of defence should calls get too hectic. One day our switch broke basically meaning customers couldn't connect to the net. This old lady didn't really understand and was addement on getting me to check the settings on her machine that had been working till this morning!! As you can imagine we had hundereds of other people calling and to get this old dear off the phone I had to tell her that "The whole Internet is down today and nobody can get on" Strangely enought she took this as a solution and went on her merry way ?!?
