    OMG Dave,

    Am I too late? How much have you had to drink??!?

    I am really concerned for your well-being...I once had a monkey for my best friend...we shared so much together, but it ended in tragedy...let me tell you the tale...

    We went to the Animal Fair
    The birds and the beasts were there
    The big baboon by the light of the moon
    Was combing his auburn hair

    The monkey, he got drunk,
    and fell on the elephant's trunk,
    The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees,
    And that was the end of the monk-ey, monk-ey, monk-ey...
    :eek: :ohmy

    Please let that be a warning to you!

    Thanks Leehaa, I needed cheering up:biggrin

    Work is getting a bit crazy, mostly weird problems, such as My monitor pixels keep changing can an engineer come over and have a look at the monitor , I think it's broken:biggrin

    The other - lost the metal cover on the floppy drive and it's stuck inside a PC.
    :blink

    Ah well back to the grind stone.

    What I really need is users who don't panic and do something stupid like switch off the PC while windows is loading and then wonder why they get BSOD.:biggrin

    mate - i rather have *those* users than the ones who call up, ask for help, and then act if they know everything in IT, and use the terminology all wrong thinking that it all makes sense and then question your ability to do the job...

    Good Point!!

    I have had problems with those users as well, I find some even change the administrator passwords and put BIOS passwords on Laptops - what a nighmare, when they leave and the Laptop has to be rebuilt or used by the new member of staff.

    Today one of my jobs was to upgrade a IBM pc which was on W2k to WINXP. The only problem was the user didn't know what software she used and when I asked what she did, there was a long pause of silence followed by I use MS word.:blink

    Another user emailed in to say their computer wasn't working.
    What would of been useful to put in the email is their telephone number, dept, room number, PC number and what happen before the computer wasn't working.

    I guess i will have to wait until they chase the job:rolleyes:

    There is a way to remove the password from BIOS using debug. I'll have to find that passage in the book. If you are interested that is.

    Well she did not lie with that answer did she?:p

    How did she e-mail then.

    Raffaz - thats long winded - if they are able to lock the BIOS, perhaps, they (IT Bods) should put 2 separate passwords for the BIOS, one for acessing, and the second for saving the data... At the end of the day, it is a security breach for users to be bypassing passwords like that, especially within the NHS.

    The computers at work are all on LAN and each account setup through AD. So if one PC does go down the user can then log onto another PC (Anywhere in the trust, and there's over 2k of them) and the desktop icons and settings will follow them/transfer onto that PC. The downside is the files are saved in my documents on local C -drive and the roaming profile has been switched off. So their work files should be backed up to a network drive, however most users don't know what a network drive is, let alone where the network drive is.

    Also their files, are very sensitive data, they can not do their work without them, so they panic when the computer goes down.

    They shout and scream down the phone and say they are very important they must have a new PC today, the only problem, everyone I have met has said this to me and I spend upto an hour backing up all their files because they don't know what to keep and what to delete.:blink 8)

    As for the bios I would interested to know it's format is it loaded from Floppy or USB stick?

    I heard in some pubs, if the bar man/maid pours you a pint with a large head on it (all froth and no beer) you can ask for a top up?

    I tried that, got a slap in the face and a filthy look:ohmy

    But then again I was going out with the new bar maid at the time:biggrin
