The GFX Card removed
Did not take place at work, was for me friends brothers back in 2000s he was 15 at the time.
Was explaining over MSN messagner how to remove gfx card to put another one in
Then all of a sudden he vanished off line.
then got a phone call saying his computer had gone off..
Yup you can guess what happened there.. Did make me laugh, luckily it all still worked afterwards
Like to play swap out
We got a load of HP laptops all indentical which run Igel client configured for Citrix use.
We get the odd call to say its running slow when they log on etc (Just normally reset the citrix profile as nowt special saved in it)
But always get the odd person who wont have it so we keep a couple of spares and just swap the laptop out for a spare one and put the swopped one back out in stocl untill the next call and swop again.
We dont even bother to boot the things up when swopped as there is really no point..
its the illusion you have done something that pays off
Ashes to Ashes
About 3 years had a call from local Crem to report PC kept shutting down near the Crem machine where the bodies go.
So sent across one of the minions to go take a look and he bought it back to site as indeed was over heating.
So the poor lad takes this apart and its full of (I kid you not) white soot.
So he happily goes on with clean it out etc.. untill i explain to him what the soot could possiably be...
Image that your last resting place wedged in the back of an HP DC5750.....
I had a lifemobile 3g sim.
They launched teh offer for 10 quid so signed up.
Got sent a new plusnet sim to replace old one.
Had no 4g data for 2 weeks.
Rang up again to be told i would have to be sent another 3g life mobile activate that sim then stick in another 4g sim and activate that and all was well..
What a game though

Am i right in thinking if you have a dodgy version of win 7 ultimate this will free upgrade to win 10 pro....
Only wonder as my new lappy has win 10 home and could in theory wipe clean install win 7 ultimate and up to 10 pro??
But as it is microshaft will get shafted some where along the way...
