Old Matt The Computer Guy
« on: September 25, 2007, 02:06:11 PM »

Old  Matt

I was having trouble with my computer. So I called  Matt  the computer guy, to come over.  Matt  clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. 
 
He gave me a bill for a minimum service call. 
 
As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?" 
 
He replied, "It was an ID ten T error." 
 
I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again?" 
 
Matt  grinned.... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?" 
 
"No," I replied. 
 
"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out." 
 
So I wrote down. I D 1 0 T 
 
I used to like  Matt.

A friend emailed me this and I certainly can relate.......  :-\

Thanks Patrick, Iris & Sue Ann,

I thought it was pretty clever, to be really funny it has to have a grain of truth!

Peace,

He replied, "It was an ID ten T error." 


Maybe you already know this, but... 

The technical name for the ID10T error is Organic Peripheral Failure, or OPF.

Unfortunately, its a very common problem.

So I wrote down. I didn't error  ::) ???



ID-Ten-T Error
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
ID-Ten-T Error (also seen as ID10T and ID107) is a term often used by tech support operators and computer experts to describe a user error, a problem that is attributed to the user's ignorance instead of a software or hardware malfunction. It is a masked jab at the user: when ID-Ten-T is spelled out it becomes ID10T, l33tspeak for "idiot". (Though the usage actually predates 1337 as a part of geek culture.) It is also known as a "Ten-T error" or "ID:10T error".

Historical use (circa 1995) includes phone tech support personnel instructing the user/customer to place the line "id=10t" in their config.sys file.

A highly popularized example of this is a user mistaking their CD-ROM tray for a cupholder, or a user looking for the "any key". However, any variety of stupidity or ignorance induced problems can be described as ID10T errors.

[edit] Other uses
In Navy and Army slang, the term has a similar meaning to that describable above though it's pronounced differently:

The Navy pronounces ID10T as 'Eye-Dee-Ten-Tango'. [1]
The Army pronounces 1D10T as 'One Delta Ten Tango'. [2]
1D10T (pronounced "one dee ten tee") is also used in Army slang in reference to the massive amounts of paperwork involved in getting anything done, e.g., "this requires a one dee ten tee form".[citation needed]
