    You get great relief from taking the coat-hanger out of your mouth when you get home.

    I could work out win 95 keys in my head*














    *not so difficult really since it would work if each two consecutive numbers added up to 7.

    ...you get a smug feeling when your sever cabinets wiring is all neat and colour coded, and you get upset about why the rest of the staff refuse to come and take a look.

    Surely not...wasn't 12345-6789 one as well? I haven't got my "legacy software" CD pack on me today for a test.

    I can STILL recall Win95a/b/Win98/XP product keys. Shame I can never remember my damn card PIN..

    I'd say you've been in the game too long when you can walk into a suite, and pick up the discord of one fan in 60 that's just starting to go unbalanced or dry.

    Or when you go out to a teachers car that won't start, see the text "Please press the "Start" button", and when that does nothing grab a spanner and do the "battery disconnect for 30 seconds, reconnect" routine and reboot the onboard systems. Funny thing is that's worked nicely the last 2 times..heh.

    Off topic, were they newish astras by any chance?


    ...You know you've been a tech too long when miss the fact that the 8 PCs you have imaged and done software installs on don't have working mice because you can do everything from keyboard shortcuts...


    ...You know you've been a tech too long when you start working out the logic table for your dishwasher's controller unit when it doesn't work...
