Way Too Hi Tech for FawCawnahs Dan Blaine DBLIVIT blaine@eucom.mil I've got a "Dilbert" cartoon posted above my desk:

This one is entitled "Dogbert's Tech Support".

1st pane: Dogbert sitting at the help desk. Phone rings and caller sez: "Hello, I..."

Dogbert answers: "Shut up and Reboot."

2nd pane: The caller sez: "Hey it work..."

Dogbert answers: "Shut up and hang up."

3rd pane: Dogbert's thought bubble: "My average call time is improving."


Being in the support end of the computer business, I find this approach to helping the user the most effective. I.e., give the user enough slack and he'll figure it out himself.
