I just got a phone call from California. It was the technical support center of Micro$oft. The call center agent was very friendly, and he convinced me that I have a serious problem with my Window$ computer, and he was calling to help me solve it. Could I please switch on my window$ computer…

I asked him for his phone number, so I could call him back, but unfortunately he could not do that.

I then told him that I could not switch on my window$ computer, because all of them were already running Linux because it is too dangerous to run window$ computers, which will get viruses from the internet and send emails to all my friends about penis enlargement, and most of my friends are women anyway…

And I told him that I had read a lot of press articles about people who had recently been called by a Micro$oft call center, and the operator had helped them to remove a virus and since then their friends got lots of emails about penis enlargements and interesting very cheap drugs…

Then the friendly call center agent hung up, without solving my problem.

Life is hard…
