Abject apologizings and an update!

Firstly, my most abject and humble apologizings for not being on the lst several months, they have been quite busy for me. Suffice to say, the business is starting to uptick, and my job with the Uncle is still as busy as ever! I also purchased and moved into my own abode, am owned by two cats, and several other things.

And now for the update. You all will be glad to know that the FNG is no longer employed by the Uncle. What was the final straw you may ask? He felt that the strain of submitting the form authorizing him to telework once every six months was too much effort for him, and he felt he no longer needed to do it. When his duly appointed supervisor informed him he would have no choice but to go to the nearest facility as a result of this, per department regulations, a facility which, by the way, was a 50-mile trip one way, he promptly told $supervisor where to shove it.

If you think this is the end of the story, think again. The FNG wouldn’t let sleeping dogs lie, and made a huge stink out of this, emailing everyone he could, and made quite a few enemies. It got so bad so fast, one of the Undersecretaries for IT personally called the AD administrator for our Region, told them to immediately disable the FNG’s AD account on their express order, put in a note saying as much, and not to re-enable the account unless it was by the Undersecretary’s explicit orders.

And in a hilarious series of failed attempts, the FNG tried calling in no less than 14 times to $helpDesk, and each time claiming to be a VIP or high ranking executive member of the organization, said his AD account & email were disabled. Each time, he was told in no uncertain terms what the note said in his AD account, and that they wouldn’t re-enable it. Eventually, his former supervisor put a note into the FNG’s help desk profile, telling the desk monkies not to take anything the FNG said seriously, that he was not a VIP, nor was he a high ranking member of the organization as he had claimed in the calls, and if he called again, they were free to simply hang up on him.

Oh, and it gets better too. The FNG is currently suing to get his job back. The concensus is that he stands little, if any chance of actually winning his case, since there’s an epic amount of evidence against him. We’ll see how this pans out…

fun with projectors

The following conversation is with a Principal of a school having problems with a projector on a laptop:

me;The projectors are just plug and play they should work. It’s not something I can fix remotely if they are not working. If the projector is powering up but not showing a picture they can try holding down the fn and hitting the f4 key.

principal: She does not have the option for display of projector; Sue has the same issue. Could you help?

me:Just to be clear they tried the function f4 combo and it did not work? If that truly is the case then maybe the projector is bad

principal:There computer only goes to F12

This is where it’s at…

Between social media becoming a mud pit and a general sense of loss for the original TSC, I have to ask… am I the only one who is starting to make a serious effort to go back to pre-Facebook web habits? Give me a screen full of text any day.

Was trying to message Skippytpodar

I was trying to message Skippytpodar, but that doesnt look possible with the way the site is setup.

I have created techsupportcomedy.com and was looking for ideas on what would make it better. I am also trying to get  the word out that the site is up and running.

I remember the old Techcomedy.com site and was dissapointed to find that it no longer exists. I started working on techsupportcomedy.com before finding that several of the users came here. I have not built the forums, as i am not trying to take users away from here.

Please contact me at wolfee182@mailfence.com. I would like to work with like minded people to make it a great site.

Please feel free to delete this message. I completely understand.
