I can only guess this ad is dated at around 1984 or 85? Not sure.

I work as a network technician for the US Army. Sometimes, we have some interesting conversations with users when they want to argue with us about troubleshooting. This was a conversation between one of my co-workers and one of our more… Special users….
LT- “Chief, there’s a BIG system issue that won’t allow people to login to the ****NET and after three tries they are locked out. Can you fix this?”
Chief- “Does the error say wrong username and password?”
Chief- “The issue is the users are typing their passwords incorrectly, it’s not a system issue. Once they do it wrong three times, they are locked out.”
Lt- “But it’s happened to several people, it’s a ****NET issue.”
Chief- “No, it’s a USER issue. We might need to make the default password easier for some of the ‘special’ users.”
LT- “But it happened to me, too.”
Chief- “… your new password is Password123. Try now.”
I get enraged when I see ink on a screen.

I received a call in my office during a storm which knocked out our power; the woman asked me to check her PC because when she pushed the power button…It was not turning on!
I was dumbstruck…the woman in question had a corner office with huge windows, so I had to ask the question “Have you looked outside yet?” There was a brief pause and a slow response, “Oh! Ok, I see why now!”

You know, this could help with noise and vibration. Good to know – I’m fairly certain I have that case! – Rob
