    I got a call from my niece last Sunday. She was calling because her laptop wouldn't boot. It was giving that ugly stop error about an unbootable drive. I gave her some advice about how to fix it. Funny thing was that she lives in Thailand. I thought hey outsourcing has now made it back to the US. Pretty cool.

    Maybe you should get an 800 number and she can send you referrals. Hehehe!

    Did you speak with a heavy accent and provide no reasonable support?
