She'd tried everything - calling tech support, force closing, even a cold boot. But despite her best efforts, the little spinning wheel stared back at her, relentless in its' clock-wise rotation, silently, arrogantly mocking her.
"This can't be!" cried Lois. "If I don't get this stupid computer running, I'll miss my deadline, then lose my blogging job at the Daily Planet, and then I'll wind up living under a bridge and eating squirrels! Can no one help me?"
Suddenly, there was a loud zipping sound just outside the window - a crash of breaking glass - a muffled "is it too much to ask for them to open the %$@*&! window?" - and then, clad in all his cargo-shorted, concert tour t-shirted, flip-flop wearing, not-recently-shaven glory, stood SUPERGEEK!
"Stand aside, Lois," said he. "I'll have this computer up and running faster than you can say Steve Ballmer." Then, with fingers flying over the keyboard faster than the human eye could recognize, SuperGeek booted in safe mode, changed 14 service settings, deleted 47 unwanted BHOs, re-installed the applications, emailed off 22 bug reports to Mozilla, re-arranged the program dock, and set the screen resolution to a mind-blowing 2560 x 1600.
"There", he said, "you're all ready to log back into Blogspot and tell the world about your fascination with bacon."
"Oh SuperGeek", exclaimed Lois. "How can I ever repay you?"
"No payment required. It's all in the contractual SLAs. But if this call had gone over 15 minutes, I would have to route you to Level 2 support in India. Thank 'The Steve' that didn't happen."
Then they engaged in a passionate embrace (not really, but it would have been a nice ending, for SuperGeek anyway. Lois is HOT!).
