    She has a laptop that has a removable CDrom drive, that she either lost or I didn't return to her after service several months ago...

    I'm an at-work-entertainment-system engineer. Or is that IT guy? Well let's see, I help people use "dvd players" and teach them how to connect the portable internet/DVD players (laptop with DVD drive) to thier TV's at home, I get people's games to work, I can (or am expected to) magically fix any crappy aol problem, and I help people burn thier MP3's to a CD. Every now and then some pesky email or software problem needs to be fixed or a server pukes on my shoes, but I guess generally I'm a help-you-have-fun-at-work guy...

    Some of the things you come accross when doing support are pretty amazing.

    That's some funny shady stuff. There's no way I would have balls to pull something like off. Thanks for the funny story.
