xkcd - A Webcomic - Tech Support Cheat Sheet


There really are a few of our library staff, not to mention some regular patrons -- and, of course, a lot of the more irregular ones (in more ways than one*) who could probably benefit from this flowchart. Assuming they know how to read a flowchart.

OTOH there are the occasional "helpful" patrons who think they need to fix things themselves, including adding paper to the printers when they're empty. I've even had patrons ask the question,"Where's the paper? I need to put paper in the printer." (My reply, "No, thanks, that's part of our job.") They are not unlike -- and possibly may be the same people as -- the ones who put their books away themselves, often in the wrong places.

If you mouseover the cartoon, it says "Hey, Megan, it's your father. How do I print out a flowchart?"

*No, not that way, thank goodness. Our computer lab is near the bathrooms.
