Gah! [Mar. 26th, 2002|01:44 pm]
Kurt Onstad
I just spent half an hour trying to get a customer to drag his Start bar from the top of the screen to the bottom. He was never able to do it. Eventually I gave up and referred him to Microsoft ("Must be a problem with Windows"). Really, how many ways can you explain to a person "Put the mouse in the blank grey area of that toolbar, not at the edge, and click and hold the mouse button down, then drag the mouse to the bottom of the window." before you lose your mind?

How many times before you go crazy?...

a hundred and nine times. Trust me. There is no way you can say that to someone a hundred and nine times and be sane by the end :P

Yes, but...

You can go over to your grandmother's and demonstrate. All I can do is type in instructions...
