have just been browsing through some of the threads. whilst people seem to have horrid problems with computers, viruses "and- the- rest",the humourous comments intertwined therein give me some gems to make me laugh.....thanks folks for "moments of light relief" amidst the seriousness of "computer nightmares ".......
i find it the best thing to do when someone is obviously fed up of thier system to try to be light hearted and maybe even give them something to smile about as well as trying to help them solve thier problem. sometimes just relaxing and taking a few moments out can make you notice the most obvious answer shouting at you.
Forum editor,,,,, i have seen some of your comments....your sense of humour is OK.
is that we don't all find the same things funny, and very often people's attempts at humour in the threads fall flat because of it. We all know the feeling of utter frustration which comes when the computer refuses to play ball - you could cheerfully hurl it through the window, and the last thing you want is some bright spark making a joke about your predicament. That's why I tend to discourage those "Time for a little light relief" threads - not because I'm an irascible spoilsport, but because I see the dozens of email complaints that invariably flood in. We run a fairly serious web forum here, and we have a sense of responsibility towards the thousands of people who read the threads but don't post - they haven't come here to read a thread with 50 links to joke sites.
Nevertheless, there are times when a little humour fits naturally into our rhythm, and someone says something that puts a smile on lots of faces.
