XKCD Tech Support Cheat Sheet (still the greatest thing ever)

Here’s the one I’m talking about. I know we’ve all seen it but it is still amazing.

I’ve never owned a fax and have rarely used a fax in my life but I was able to fix it look like a genius, even though I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Stuff like that happens a lot and looking at that flowchart always makes me feel better afterwords.

While we’re on the subject, I guess, faxes just seem like useless outdated technology. Can’t we just scan and email documents to people. Save paper, time and no more lame fax machine problems!

Bookmarked. I’m going to find a frame for it and hang it up in my office. Thanks - I apparently missed it the first time I was reading this comic and went through hundreds of strips in two days. :smiley:

And speaking of faxes: we have a huge fax machine in my office. They got my coworker Efax capability, but she never uses it. She handwrites her faxes and uses the machine. I think they’re going to cancel the Efax subscription. I have an all-in-one printer/copier/fax/scanner: I can’t use the fax, because I don’t fax that much and they were afraid my coworker would try to use it. But I scan everything and email it. So much easier.

I have that hung up on my wall at work, along with some tickets from youparklikeanasshole.com.

At least two of us on my hallway alone have that on our doors. So true.

As a tangent, I want to print out the button at the end of this post, and put it on my wall at work - I’m that kind of asshole – The Bloggess

I printed it out a few months ago and gave it to my mother. She’s actually learning to check stuff out herself!

Speaking of which, is xkcd.com down right now? The page loads for me, but it’s completely blank.

Nope. Worked for me just now, and I saw the comic.

“PC load letter? The fuck does that mean?”

It’s stated in Life’s Rules that Office Space must be mentioned in some form or another in such threads. I’m just doing my Life’s duty.

How hard do you try to make people hate you? Why?

Judging from her personality here on The Dope, I think it’s innate and therefore puts forth pretty much zero effort.

Well they don’t call her MeanOldLady for nothin. Just like how I’m not called GoodTOJ.

I am absoLUTEly putting that up at work!
Another favorite I see at work is “If I agree with you, will you shut up?”
Gotta love it. :stuck_out_tongue:

If y’all have a problem with MOL, take it to the Pit, don’t hijack an MPSIMS thread with personal remarks.

Heh. I’ve been doing this, essentially, ever since I’ve first started using computers…except back in MY day, we didn’t HAVE the internet, much less Google.

The best part about this is everybody likes it. More than one person has asked me if they can take one of the tickets. This frequently leads to long, amusing rants by the taker about asshole parking. Now above the tickets I made a little sign that says “Take One.” And CIB is right: zero effort. It’s a gift.

My friend gave me a “ticket” for having too dirty of a car once. Fortunately, it was a fix-it type ticket. I never did wash that car afterwords though.

I hope all you facebook people joined the “If 1,000,000 people join this group, it will have 1,000,000 people in it” group today.

Wait, were those tickets given to you, or there for giving to others? If it’s the latter, then I stand corrected.

She’s the one giving them.
