Ahh, the Power of googling
I have been asked about web browser problems "Help, internet explorer cannot connect to this internal site and my help desk cannot figure it out" Amusingly enough, "clear cache" works frequently.
I have been asked how to get MS Word to install (rebooting works wonders on windows).
I have been asked autocad questions. I have been asked how to do things in SQLServer (many times I can answer those, but I’m never sure if I’m telling them the best way). I’ve been asked to diagnose mysql issues.
I’m asked career advice a lot. The only answer I give is “you have to do something that makes you happy, but I’m not going to tell you to be a DBA or Developer, you have to decide that yourself..”. That is a scary question, way too much pressure on that one (give the wrong answer and ruin someones life).
Since things happen in threes, I have at least one more mouse trail question in my near future. I just wonder what that person thought about asktom. I have a feeling after looking at their website that they might not have ever heard of Oracle before. The question almost looks like it fits on the site anyway. Anyway, it’ll make me laugh from time to time today.
