This is the other Daniel, Daniel H, and this reminds me of way back in
2001 when I was repairing computers as a way to make a living. It's a story
that doesn't apply to this Daniel but its one I want to tell. I really didn't
know how to repair computers but I did have a phone and would ride my horse to
peoples homes who were having computer problems. I would write the problem down
and then ride home. Late at night (cause the dial up was practically unuseable,
like 4 minute page loads) get on line and post the problem to message boards
where geeks who knew how to fix problems. They would respond with the
solution and I would ride my horse back to the customers house the next
day and fix the problem using the message board geeks solution!
Fun times and fond memories.
