Okay, so what the heck does that actually mean, anyway? I once asked my eye doctor, and he just laughed at me ...
Today's card project was created for no-good reason using this uber-cute stamp from Stampin' Up's "Farm Fresh" set. Well, I do love this ribbon and wanted to use it Right. Now.
For the rest of the amazing product info, check out the Supply List, below.
So, this weekend the DH, who's a computer repair techie, got this call:
DH: "So, what's the problem?"
DH: "You'll need a new power supply."
Customer: "No, I don't! I just need to change the start up files."
DH: "Sir, the power supply is faulty. You'll need to replace it."
Customer: "No way! Someone told me that I just needed to change the start-up and it will fix the problem! All I need is for you to tell me the command."
So, it's 10 minutes later and the Customer is still adamant that he is right. The DH is getting frustrated and fed up:
DH: "Okay, okay. We don't normally tell our customers this, but there is an undocumented DOS command that will fix the problem."
Customer: "I knew it!"
DH: "Just add the line "LOAD NOSMOKE.COM" at the end of the CONFIG.SYS. Let me know how it goes."
Then, 10 minutes later, the customer calls back:
Customer: "It didn't work. The power supply is still smoking."
DH: "Hmmm, what version of DOS are you using?"
Customer: "MS-DOS 6.22."
DH: "Okay, that's your problem there. That version of DOS didn't come with NOSMOKE. Contact Microsoft and ask them for a patch that will give you the file. Let me know how it goes."
1 hour later:
Customer: "I need a new power supply."
DH: "Oh. So, how did you come to that conclusion?"
Customer: "Well, I called Microsoft and told him about what you said, and he started asking questions about the make of the power supply."
Customer: "He told me that my power supply isn't compatible with NOSMOKE. So, I'll be bringing it by for a new power supply, if that's okay with you?"
DH: "Sure, bring it by anytime."
Hangs up. Turns to me and says:
"Duh. Remind me to over-charge him."
He didn't though ...
