Some common mistakes

I just thought that I would share with you one of the more entertaining problems which needed my help to overcome.

A collegue phoned my office in the early days f the Acorn 32 bit machines. It had the first mouse that this lady had used. About a week after the machine had been installed she phoned in some alarn to say that the mous buttons were not working as they should and what was worse the pointer was moving in the opposite direction to what was normally the case. I went over to her office and turned the mouse around so that the tail of the mouse pointed away from her.

I recently read about a tech support guy who got a call from a guy who was having difficulty with his mouse, he said that he found the buttons difficult to operate, the tech guy could not understand why untill he arrived at the guys house to find him doing the same thing.

seems like an easy mistake to make :-)
