Spot on, though when people come to me with painfully easy questions that shows they haven't taken 2 minutes to look around, I just go there and ask specific questions until they find out for themselves.

OMG atsukoarai86 you are right on the money. I hate people like this. I am not an engineer nor am I IT but I am fairly computer savvy and when people make such stupid mistakes, or can't figure something so simple out it drives me crazy!!! i just want to scream "if you would take five minutes to look you could figure it out you effing retard!!!" but the crazy part of me is hidden away and I just act nice and show the people because it would be mean to make them realize just how ignorant they are.
i feel the pain... I'm a programmer and database developer right now and... omigad. for some reason people think because I can program, I can do absolutely ANYTHING to, with, or about a computer.
