I borrowed a friends computer and needed to make an online payment. So I looked at the box then placed my credit card into the floppy drive to make the payment. The payment didn't work but now my credit card is stuck in a friends computer. Does anybody know how to fetch a credit card from a floppy drive?
I read this one on the net and if you have any statements like it then please share... So funny lol.

Hmm, where's the any key. I see ctrl and alt. I think I might just order a tab. Ow, computers starting.

Hey, while you are working on that - can you fix the cup holder that came with my new computer? I put my large mug on it and it broke and spilled coffee everywhere.

"PC Helpline, how may I help you?"
"Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."
"What sort of trouble?"
"Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."
"Went away?"
"They disappeared."
"Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"
"Nothing."
"Nothing?"
"It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."
"Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"
"How do I tell?"
"Can you see the C:\> prompt on the screen?"
"What's a sea-prompt?"
"Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on the screen?"
"There isn't any cursor: I told you, it won't accept anything I type."
"Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
"What's a monitor?"
"It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a
little light that tells you when it's on?"
"I don't know."
"Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord
goes into it. Can you see that?"
[sound of rustling and jostling then muffled]
"Yes, I think so."
"Great! Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the
wall."
"Yes, it is."
"When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two
cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"
"No."
"Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other
cable."
[rustle rustle] [muffled]
"Okay, here it is."
"Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of
your computer."
[still muffled]
"I can't reach."
"Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"
"No."
"Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"
"Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle-it's because it's dark
in here."
"Dark?"
"Yes-the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from
the window."
"Well, turn on the office light then."
"I can't."
"No? Why not?"
"Because there's a power outage."
"A power what? AAARRRGGGGHHHHH!"

I have a friend (studies teaching, girl) and she asked me for help that she has a problem with a files on Windows
Story:
From her friend she received a zipped executable. But she couldn't extract the executable file. But the file was in the zip file (DZ internal zip browser)
Me:
I came there and I couldn't do it too. Running the executable in the zip file was showing an windows error. After few minutes of trying I realized, that the issue could be somewhere else. The executable was heavy trojan(ed) and virused. And the antivirus application didn't allowed to extract it. But still it didn't showed any error or notifications about infected file. I looked in the logs of AV and there it was written. Told her, that the file is dangerous that the antivirus application is preventing it to be extracted because of safety.
She sad OK.
After a day I asked her if her friend send her again the file. She replied no, that she has stopped the antivirus application and extracted and run the executable. I told her, that she should not call me anymore for any problems related to her laptop.

There's smoke coming out of my cpu again and I'm not sure what to do. I googled it and found the answer to be "your waffles are ready". I guess it's not a good idea to cook my waffles on the cpu.

The least you spammers could do was post funny jokes.
