Easy Money

I had two jobs this morning. One was someone who was having a problem with a printer, and because it wasn’t working, she couldn’t do anything. She said it seemed like it wasn’t getting any power. Well, I went to check it out, it was plugged in. So I unplugged it, plugged it back in, tested it, 16V on the one side, 32V on the other like it should, and pressed the power button. Voila, it worked. Took me a couple minutes. My next one was someone who said there daughter was on the computer last night, and when he went to turn it on this morning, “it wasn’t working.” I get there, sit down, and it said “NTLDR missing.” This could happen if something gets screwed up on the hard drive… I press a key, it takes a few seconds for it to come up again. I reach down to turn off the computer and notice a floppy disk in the floppy drive. I remove it, press a key, computer boots up just fine. Everything was back to normal. Did some other things for the guy too, but still. Check the floppy drive. Anyway, I must go investigate dinner options for Jess, ones that involve no meat, or meat on the side.
