Man, I used to live in a condo that was comprised of mostly old people, it was more like a retirement home lol.
They were all very nice and would do anything for you but completely pc illiterate.
They would CONSTANTLY hit me up for computer issues, mostly their damn printers, which I hate messing with.
The thing is, when you fix one thing (which they may or may not pay me for) they took that to mean that they had free 24/7 support from me, even if the problem differed from the initial problem.

Thats cool and all.

But as a nerd, I revel in a challenge, even if that challenge is USER error related.

Nothing helps me past the time better than tearing a pc apart, formatting and trouble shooting, dunno, I think I am going to hate it when everything either gets to the point its too complex to fix, or is so smart it fixes it self.
