Despite being a graphic designer, which has garnered me an undeserved “techie” status in Cubeville, I have absolutely no idea what’s going on inside my computer. It’s 100% magic to me. When a colleague asks me how to fix a problem (any problem), I advise them to “restart” and/or “give it a sec”. These are little gems of wisdom I picked up by calling the IT desk of every Cube Farm I’ve ever been in, like…8000 times. And it usually works. It’s a good thing, because my secondary advice would be something along the lines of sweet talk or perhaps burning sage nearby.
Speaking of things I don’t understand, here’s one that’s useful despite it’s scary Big Brotherness.
Yes, I know compruter is misspelled. It’s supposed to be. As in “They say a compruter can do my job better than I can damn do it.” Which in many cases, it can.
