A new customer calls, saying he is trying to connect to the internet, but the disk is stuck in the drive.
When I get there, he points to the floppy drive and says he put the disk into the drive, but he can’t get it out…
I take a close look into the floppy drive (it has one of those spring-flap doors that keep the drive internals a bit less dusty… I eventually see that there is a small 8cm cd in the drive!
Every time I open the floppy door, it catches onto the bottom of the CD, so that I can’t get a good grip.
I end up delicately applying some brute force… and the CD emerged unscathed 🙂
I then place the CD where it belongs (in the CD drive) and setup a dialup internet connection (after some password problems… the CD software refused to accept passwords shorter than 6 characters, yet the ISP created an account with a 4 letter password…)
I install an antivirus, test the internet, setup and test the email account, and that’s the end of an interesting session of disk wrestling 🙂
