    OK, I usually only post xkcds when they are relevant to a thread, but this one I'm sure has relevance to everyone here and will give you a good laugh and might even come in handy to send to people next time they ask for help, so I decided to make a thread for it! :p

    Im not saying I have a lot of computer knowledge but I get asked my friends and family all the time to fix computers, etc etc. I can do most using my knowledge and if I am stuck I just google it... the answer is always out there somewhere... perhaps 'non-computer' people should use google more.

    I must admit that I hate fixing computers, some windows PCs needs a format and reinstall... a process which takes ages when you consider all the updates, etc etc... and I do it for free! lol~ would be sooo rich if I charged, lol :p

    There should be one where they would compensate for time and effort if problem is solved.
