Hilarious! Aug 1, 2007

However, having worked at a help desk myself as a student, I can testify that it is not too far from reality as we might like to believe...icon_wink.gif

Thank you for a good laugh, Vito!

So funny!!! Aug 2, 2007

I'm always giving support to my customers and have simply loved it. That's like real life... and the final user guide detail is hilarious!!

...just like those instructions on DVD I'm receiving lately..l which I can't check because I don't have a DVD.
