UncleTogie's Journal: Hey, now YOU can pirate music anonymously for $8....not. 2

Journal by UncleTogie
And now, another Tale From The Shop....

Oh, for the love of Pete....
Why, oh why, is the basic RTFM mantra no longer preached?

I just had a client in asking for an "X-drive". When queried for specifics, he said this: "Yeah, my friend said there's an $8 cable called an 'X-Drive' that can keep people from telling if you pirate music." I'm not expecting people to list off the standard IRQs and I/O addys for the first four serial ports... I just wish people would at least get the basics down before they show up with these questions.

  • So did you give him a cable where all wires went to ground or not?
    • Nope. I explained what he needed to know instead.

      While it may be tempting to take advantage of the Sheeple, I sleep a LOT easier at night by just giving them the truth.
