[font="Comic Sans MS"]Greetings all!
I'm Jollywalla, and live in the Charleston, SC area. I have a Yankee's dry sense of humor, sarcasm, and wit. My background is in Curriculum Development and Human Resources. By my conservative estimation, dealing with AV/AM issues, has already taken 10 yrs off my life expectancy, but I painfully trudge on.
Through my many years of conducting new employee orietations, employee benefit presentations, writing employee handbooks, and conducting employee training classes, I soon discovered that if my goal was to lead the mouse to the cheese, information alone wasn't going to do it. (I call it JW's Mouse Theroy) I had to go the extra mile to also anticipate all the wrong turns in the maze, and gently guide my mouse to the shortest route to the cheese!
I share this with the group because, I've got to tell you, reading some of the reader comments is a lesson in reading Geekanese. "At our company, I solved that problem by running XYZ program, ran a total scan in safe mode with network, changed the filename to ZXY to fool the V/M/T into not seeing it, and ran another total scan with the UVW program."
I know today everyone worships brevity. I assume it's because if they're texting, brevity reduces texting costs. To the dwindling numberof us who still communicate only in complete sentences, their messages can be quite cryptic. "OK, JW, just land the space shuttle, restart, and you're clear for takeoff! Easier said than done. Same with computer/software fixes or work arounds.
When you post a fix that requires a download, please remember JW's Mouse Theroy, go the extra mile, and please provide a download link too. That's all I ask from all!
