A colleague in my new area, and who I last worked near some three years ago came and got my assistance yesterday for a PDF problem. For some reason I am regarded as a guru despite the fact I know perhaps a skerrick more about computers than the average office worker. For example I can't even load memory into a PC. That's how lame I am. I have to get friends to do it.
After assisting her (successfully) I returned to my desk. Five minutes later she came back to me.
"Peter ... Peter Brock just got killed ... " she said, looking shocked. She blinked then walked off.
Now it's a tragedy sure. I understand that. But I've like spoken to her twice in three years, helped her for two minutes, then she comes and tells me about a celebrity death.
