OST 25:17. "The path of the tech support man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the retarded and the tyranny of stupid men. Blessed is he who, in the name of low wages and good will, shepherds the dumb through the valley of the Blue screens of Death. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost files. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who demand to see my supervisor. And you will know I am the Tech when I lay my vengeance upon you." -recalcitech

Hi. I'm StarChaser, the Tech Support Tyger. I once worked for IBM, and hated it; now I work for AOL, ghod help me, and miss the days of IBM. I supported custom software for IBM's customers, and wrote the database for our largest one, which is still in use; the bastards just took my name off it.

http://web.tampabay.rr.com/starchsr/doofus.htm is part of my site, the Doofus of the Unspecified Time Period. This chronicles some of the adventures I've had, although not nearly all of them.

The broken cupholder? Taken it. Talked to the lady with the problem with the footpedal. Helped the guy with the dustcover on his mouse.

All the stupid calls that you think people just make up on websites? I've talked to them.

I was prompted to create this user, after a Very Long Time of not doing so, by tribbel in the node 'How to listen to tech support'. But that was deleted as a GTY(me), although I saw it as explaining WHY I was answering the way I did. But whatever...
