Re: Have you ever ended up being roped into doing more tech support than you’d bargained for?
My daughter has USB sticks, 1TB of cloud storage and had everything only locally on her MacBook Pro... Which she threw in her backpack along with her coffee flask.
You know where this is going, right?
The coffee flask was still full and she forgot to reseal it before putting it in her backpack.
By the time she got back to her flat, the screen hat a lovely Mandelbrot style pattern across it - only it wasn't on! The whole thing was dripping coffee. And she tried to turn it on...
By the time I got hold of it, the sugar had done its job on the circuits as well. Even the hard drive wasn't in a state to be rescued. She had to re-write the whole of her disertation using notes and a week old printout.
She learnt a bitter lesson and allowed me to install automatic backup software on her replacement machine.
