I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Eric, the 11 year old


next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come


over. Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.


As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong? He


replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'


I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, 'An, ID ten T


error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'


Eric grinned..... 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?


'No,' I replied. 'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it


out.'


So I wrote down:


ID10T





I used to like Eric, the little bastard
