You will be mocked!

You know, it’s quite amazing that people think the computer world works soooo differently than the ‘real world’.  Are they ever going
to learn?  I doubt it.  How many of you actively go out there looking for things that you should know just don’t exists any more?
Seriously, when was the last time that Tandy made the 2500XL PC with Deskview?  Hell, do any of you even REMEMBER Tandy Computers?
(Although I suspect that a few of your closet freaks still remember Tandy Leather Company.  You mention Leather and Computers today and
you’ll get a whole different type of response!).  Suffice to say you don’t go out looking for out-dated products.  If you think
hardware (or anythying physical like cars or TVs) get outdated soon (like very year), software is even worse!  Any given piece of code
can be outdated within a week of its release, let alone upgrades and ‘patches’ for security bugs.
So here is one of our ‘less than bright’ clients who starts off with:
“why don’t I have access to the old version?”
You know you are dealing with a real gem when you see that line.  And it continues…
“I bought it in the past, see attached copy of email with proof.”  Hurray!  You showed me proof of something you bought!  Well it’s
a darn good thing I’m in a generous mood to allow that to be submitted as evidence in the case of ‘reality vs moron’ here, otherwise
I might have deemed it inadmissable.
I know people who have bought 1985 K-Cars in the past too but hey, guess what?  They don’t make them any more!  So I’ll give you 3
guesses why you can’t get the ‘old version’ and the first two don’t count!
It’s a wonder that some of these people even know how to procreate (would the correct opposite be concreate?).  I mean, when you email
someone with very striaght forward 8 simple steps (click here, click here, click here….type of thing) then said person forwards
the email to their IT department with ONLY the word ‘help’ in it….sad, sad, sad.  Seriously, I was truly saddened by this and
immediately after vowed to immortalize such people on a regualr basis on my blog!  Let this be a guiding light to all you people
crying to technical help!  You will be mocked!
