    does anyone know how to rid onesself of a nagging "think I am computer genius" who insists on calling late into the night with questions such as:

    "How come I cant put USB cables into my router?"

    and

    "why cant windows 95 do that, and o yea, forgot, I "
    and do have windows 95, so this wont work because it doesn't say 95 on the box, but look at this I actually have 98 so your work was pointless, but I still think it is 95.... HAHAHAHA!!" (what?)

    and

    "why cant I assimilate with my computer to become a super-machine capable of world domination and whatnot?"


    . . . anyone have any sort of 12 step program (less steps = better) or a nuclear device that only operates in small radii or something of that nature... I am desperate!

    See, that would work in theory, but rather than changing, he would merely infect the forums, and desecrate the beauty that is ntfs... noone wants that

    Just answer the phone in an foreign accent and pretend that you are a kebab shop.

    No bad idea he will then keep phoning back wanting a take-away!

    lol. . . that is actually what I told him "just go to the MS support website - knock yourself out" (he might...quoting how the MS support page might look to him: "if you have tried all of the above 'solutions' but your computer still will not do your psychotic bidding, do a dance to the computer gods continuously chanting "hu-PAH!". If this does not work, please go out in your backyard and hit yourself in the head with a hammer now."

    what will become of him, no one knows

    *edit - I are a güd typer

    Yeah I know one of those too. Horrible. Haven't seen him around for a while though (knock on wood!).
