One thing that can be frustrating is when because people know you're technical they ring up and ask insane questions.

Like I know where every setting in Win95 or OpenOffice is!

I know the tools and the toys I use, and if I've got time I play around with other stuff... but there is a limit

Over the years I've found some websites that are really good to direct these people to. Some have fallen by the wayside, some have become very focussed but others like Tech FAQ Forum just keep on doing what they set out to do - helping people - without fuss.

I'm happy because people don't bug me too much once I've sent them there. The folks I send there are happy because they don't have to phone me at 7pm on a Friday to help configure a printer. Have a look at them... see if they make you happy too!
