Several times - in fact I needed help yesterday, with an Excel formula. It took about two hours for me to have the answer.

and the person who thinks he/she knows all about it is a fool, a liar, or both.

Companies pay me to advise them about IT policies and practices, and to train their staff in the use of software, but quite often I find I'm learning from those I'm training. There's a certain girl in a client's office in Singapore who is the best I've ever seen when it comes to Microsoft Access databases - she can make the software do almost anything. She is allocated as my assistant each time I go there, and I always try to pick up some hints and tips from her in the course of our work together.

Reminds me that coming back from Jakarta one time, years ago now, I saw for the first time a handheld computer for sale in Singapore. A thing of pure wonderment it was at the time as indeed were the Singapore ladies as FE has acknowledged.

In work I'm the most knowledgable concerning computers, my posistion doesn't involve computers at all. But has soon as there is a problem, I'm dragged into the office, to sort or give an opinion before a call is made to head office for help.

My colleagues are always commenting on my knowledge of computers, but I always reply 'I know a fair bit, but there still alot that I don't know! but what I don't know I know where to look to find an answer' (normanly here)

One time someone tried to take the mick and said 'ha ha motherboard 2000'.

So i asked him what it is and he didn't know :->

Good link though.
