Family Tech Support

There is one nice thing about providing tech support over the phone for your family . . .

Put the CD in then ..

It is in.

.. shutdown the computer . .

You mean turn it off

.. yes turn it off, count to three turn it on

I'm doing that

... and boot from the CD ..

How do you do that?

Shut up - I'm trying to tell you that.

They (or at least the Older Monkey) takes 'shut up' to mean 'let me finish' and doesn't get all 'he's being rude and I must go have a hissy fit'.

Also .. thank God for my wife. My boys started the school day off with a spirited wrassling match in the living room: I can't imagine what it would be like without her around to impart a civilizing influence.
