As we Silver Surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.
I had a problem yesterday, so I called Nana my 19 year old daughter,
whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked her to look at it.
Nana clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
As she was walking away, I called after her, 'So, what was wrong?
She replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'
I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired,
An, ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'
Nana grinned.... 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?

No,' I replied.
Write it down,' she said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.'

So I wrote down:

ID10T

I used to like Nana.<BR style="mso-special-character: line-break"><BR style="mso-special-character: line-break">LOL

Patty,
I have to laugh at this one. I had no idea what an ID ten T error was. So I googled it and found that it's a "user error" or as Wikipedia states "a problem that is attributed to the user's ignorance instead of a software or hardware malfunction. " :VeryHappy:

One smart little daughter you have there!

Thanks for sharing this, Patty...So funny, I shared it with my "much-less-than-tech-savvy-hubby", who says he hardly knows how to turn the computer on! :P
I would also like to add that I also have a daughter who has guided me as well, when I found myself :wacko:

Should you have other "pearls" to share, we would LOVE more chuckles!
