This just came up.
Financial Director phones up: "What's the speed of my computer?"
Me: "It's a P4 3Ghz 512Mb ram etc.. (fastest machine in the office)
FD: "I mean is it a Pentium?"
FD: "Is there something faster I can get as it's slow?"
Me: "Slow? Could you mean the Internet is slow? We're getting 30% packet loss on international sites"
FD: "No, it's when i'm receiving data, so it's the machine"
ME: "AND YOU'RE RECEIVING THE DATA FROM WHERE?"
FD: "umm.. the Internet?"
Me: "yup... well done"
Suprised how a Financial Director has so little of a clue. I hope I get paid this month.
