[Dilbert] Clues for Induhviduals

Borrowed from Dilbert Newsletter 8/96.

The following 11 tips for Induhviduals are based on allegedly true stories reported from DNRC observers in the field. If one Induhvidual is stymied by something, it's a safe bet that they all are, so this should help a lot.

  1. If you're bidding on a job for UPS, don't send your bid by FedEx.
  2. If your computer says, "Printer out of Paper," this problem cannot be resolved by continuously clicking the "OK" button.
  3. If you want your refrigerator's ice maker to work, you need to hook it to a water source. Air doesn't make good ice unless it is mixed with water.
  4. No matter how much data you add to your laptop, it will not get heavier.
  5. A bad place to store your emergency backup diskette is on the underside of your desk drawer, secured by a large magnet.
  6. It's okay to use the Poloroid Land Camera on a boat.
  7. When the PC says, "Insert diskette #2," don't do it immediately. Remove disk #1 first, even if you're sure you can make them both fit in there.
  8. When your PC says "You have mail," don't go to the company mail room and look for a package.
  9. The French version of Netscape Navigator doesn't translate English language web pages into French.
  10. If you're in the armed services, and it's April 1st, and you get an e-mail message to call Colonel Sanders for new orders, don't.
  11. If you go to the computer store to buy a mousepad, you don't have to specify whether it's for a Windows or a Macintosh.
