| I remember fuming about one graduate of a computer
| science degree that asked me for help starting her
| computer. Turned out she'd left a floppy disk in,
| and the computer couldn't get past that to the OS
| on the hard drive.
what, please, is the connection between the person having
a degree and not diagnosing the problem? I totally fail
to see the connection here .... no ;-)'s
we can test this. if a person doe NOT have a degree, does
that mean the person would diagnose the problem?
my hypothesis is NO. presuming I am correct, I conclude a
degree is not relevant to the example. so, I ask again,
what is the connection?
