    My bandwidth is all screwed up, so i called in help desk to blame them.
    He asked the usual questions-according to him it was something with "windows" stealing bandwidth
    So he told me to download Knoppix (a Linux bootable all in one CD) so i could check if it really wasn't windows.
    He called back 5 minutes later and said it was something with the modem
    (but that i should still really use the Knoppix)

    just thought it was kinda funny

    What type of helpdesk is that?
    "hello - my bandwidth is acting irratically"
    "are you using windows"
    "yes"
    "well theres your problem!"
    "huh?"
    "install this OS called Linux at it will all work again"


    anyway i'm going to take a look at this knoppix to see what linux is like without having to install it
    his spam won
