IT horror stories: we’ve all heard about (or experienced firsthand) helpdesk tickets that provide absolutely no logical explanation to system admins. They provide fodder for stories that get retold again and again and make the whole IT community laugh and learn. They help us become better at what we do by teaching us valuable lessons about what and what NOT to do when it comes to supporting users or working on valuable equipment.
Since everyone love these stories, we’re asking you, dear readers, to send us YOUR favorite original IT horror stories. Naturally, real names (companies or people) should not be disclosed. And thanks to Canon, who is partnering with us for this project, we’ll be giving away one Canon Color ImageCLASS MF820Cdn printer (A value of $1299.00) to a random participant. You’ll also have the opportunity to have your IT horror story featured alongside others on Canon’s website (coming soon!)
Man, authenticating your email address just got serious.
