I get a good feeling when I can solve a technical problem for the users in my firm; it's one of the reasons why I do the work I do. This feeling is magnified when I manage to solve a problem that none of my fellow techmonkeys can unravel, not because I think my coworkers are stupid (because they certainly aren't), but rather because it means that I have skills that are valuable in my chosen profession.

However, these feelings are lessened when the problem that needs solving is one so glaringly obvious that if the users had been paying attention, they could have solved it themselves. Laser printers need toner, folks, and when they run out, they stop printing. The good news is that they'll tell you when they're out. If you actually pay attention, that is....

I don't care who you are or what you do, if you are living in the modern Information Age (as opposed to an Amish community or someplace stricken by enough poverty to make information technology a rarity rather than commonplace) and you jam a USB drive into a network jack on your laptop, you have lost all rights to that laptop. You are officially too stupid to use a computer.

... have never seen IT staff install hardware. I have never been so thankful that flatscreen monitors exist, and so annoyed that it took so long for them to get here. The difference between a 17" CRT monitor and a 17" flatscreen, just on mass and volume, is amazing. Especially when you have to decommission five of the former and replace them with the latter in an hour.

On the bright side, I don't feel guilty for indulging in cheese enchiladas for lunch....
