I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Kirupa the
computer guy, to come over. Kirupa clicked a couple of buttons
and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a minimum
service call. As he was walking away, I called after him,
“So, what was wrong?” He replied, “It was an ID ten T error.”
I didn’t want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, “An,
ID ten T error? What’s that … in case I need to fix it again?”
The computer guy grinned… “Haven’t you ever heard of an
ID ten T error before?”
“No,” I replied.
“Write it down,” he said, “and I think you’ll figure it out.”
So I wrote out … I D 1 0 T
I used to like Kirupa.
