You *all* know what this is about. Having to answer any computer related question no matter how far it is from what we really do for a living. “My computer is slowing down, should I reformat the hard drive?”, “popups popups everywhere!”, “I just deleted *all* of the pictures from your sister’s wedding. What do I do?”
