LOL I hate computer pranks and weary of accepting things any more. My last desktop was inside a bottom cabinet of my desk with the door closed ( the back side was removed there for ventilation.) A friend sent me a "joke" program with a Coca Cola bottle cap icon and said check this out. I installed the program, it put the icon on my destop and I clicked it. A little message box came up saying "Heres your new cup holder. At the same time I started hearing a tap tap tap coming from inside the desk and wondered WTF. It stopped as quickly as it started and when I opened the door to that section, I found the CD tray stopped where it was against the door with the pastic rack and pinion that opened the tray stripped

LMAO - I got a call Friday afternoon.
"Hi, is this Jeremy?"
No - I'm Tim.
"oh... I'm your sons cousin Mary and I was told to call you and see if you can fix my computer.
No thanks. Bye. <click>

now if any of my brothers and sisters had any kids maybe one would be named Mary, but since I don't have any kids at all its impossible to begin with.

now my wife has a cousin Mary, but shes 20 years older than me... no other Mary'* in her family.

I'm just a step-popa but WOW what some people will try to get free computer help.
