Tickle Me Tuesday

Computer Problem Solving FlowchartImage by anitasarkeesian via Flickr

Dave was having trouble with his computer so he called Richard, the 11 year old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to come over. Richard clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

As he was walking away, Dave called after him, 'So, what was wrong?'

He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'

Dave didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, 'An ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'

Richard grinned. 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?'

'No,' Dave replied.

'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.’

So Dave wrote down: I D 1 0 T

Dave used to like him.
