One day a friend called me from Texas. He was having a problem running BattleChess on his Macintosh. "It keeps telling me that the program must be run from a hard disk!"

"Well," I asked, "Did you drag the program from the floppy disk icon to the hard disk icon?"

"Why should I do that?" he barked in frustration, "The disk it came on is hard!"

  • The theme of this contest is technical support. It can be about computer technical support, support for making your VCR work, or anything else. Use your imagination. As long as someone in the strip is giving or receiving tech support. It can be in person, on the phone... or some other method I can't imagine.
  • Since everyone isn't in the support business, you aren't limited to strips about stupid users. Bad tech support is also a good arena for jokes. Or anything else you can think of, as long as it's about tech support.
  • Bonus points for strips about tech support for really strange, bizarre, twisted items.
  • More bonus points if it's funny.
  • Multiple entries are allowed, but not series. If you can't say it in 3 panels (or 6 with the splitter), I don't want to know about it.
  • Demerits for in-jokes. I'm as guilty as anyone, but try to make the strip funny to someone who is visiting stripcreator for the first time.
  • No Photoshop entries this round.
Judging will take place on Wednesday night around 10:00pm SC time. Possibly an hour earlier if West Wing is a repeat.

This damn Nintendo 64 game I bought WON'T WORK!!
OK, calm down, sir. Just let me see it, and I'll see if I can figure out what's wrong.
I've got it right here...
Dear God, what happened to this cartridge?
Well, when it wouldn't fit in my laptop's disc drive, I had to cut most of the casing off.

Yes, true story.

FuhCom Games tech support? In "The Adventures Of Jack Nough", when I try to use the poison bomb in the facility, it won't let me.
The poison bomb needs ventilation to work. Try opening a door, a window, a vent... something.
OK, now it should work, right?

Yeah, I'll do a better one tomorrow.

So you say you want to use the slowest and cheapest possible mailing service to ship that box?
Yeah. I bought a new monitor and it had a defective adapter. They sent me a new one but they are making me pay for shipping the defective one back to them.
Well, we have the "Slow Boat to China" service. Delivery will be within 1 to 2 years. That is, unless it gets stolen by Manchurian bandits en route, which is likely. It costs 3 cents. How's that?
I dunno. Do you have anything slower and cheaper?
The best I can do for you is "Continental Drift" service, which is free. With that service, your package should reach Toledo in about 130 million years or so.
That'll do nicely. Thank you.

Dear Robby, My robotic wife is no longer interested in sex as much as I am. What should I do? Sincerely, Horny in Houston.
Dear Horny, I'm sorry the spark has gone out of your relationship. You can make things more electric between you by plugging her in more often.
Dear Robby, My little girl is heartbroken over the accidental destruction of her robot nanny. What can we do for her? Yours, A Perplexed Poppa.
Dear Perplexed, U.S. Robots and Mechanical Men stores regular backups of each robot's positronic brain. They can virtually resurrect your little girl's nanny for her.
Dear Robby, I am attracted to Robots, but I'm afraid of what my family will think if they find out I am a robosexual. What can I do? Yours, In the Closet.
Dear Closet, I feel I can best help you by meeting with you personally. I'll be at the Cyber Cafe you emailed me from at 3:00 PM.

"US Robotics support. May I help you?"
Yes. My Clango R-251 isn't... er... meeting my needs.
"Could you be more specific?"
This is so embarasing.
Shh! I tried enhanced sex mode and he only lasted a few days on a charge. Then I accessed his programming from the back and… well... little Clango seems to have lost some_hydraulic_pressure.
"Have you tried asking Clango what he might be looking for in the relationship?"
Fuck no!

Hello , Spankling Tech Support.
Hi. I wonder if you can help me. This double penetration ***** i bought simply isnt giving me enough pleasure. I mean , it barely reaches the parts Its suppoesed to , and theres no instruction manual.
Well Madam. We have tested this product thoroughly and can guarantee it can penetrate far enough to tickle your spleen.
Its just too wide. I can barely get it in a couple of inches.
Have you attempted to use the pointed end Madam?

Hello , Siskel and Ebert movie review line.
Hi. I was wondering. I need to write a review for a local newspaper of "A Beautiful Mind" , but its embaressing asking for a ticket.
No problem sir. Simply use the word "Oscar" , "Masterpiece" , "Magnificent" and "Russell Crowe's Ass" , and youll be just fine.
Thats sounds far too much like my Gladiator review.
Its a Russell Crowe movie. What did you expect.
Hmmm. "They lodge An Oscar up Russell Crowes Magnificent Ass. Its a cinematic Masterpiece"

All the text on my monitor is highlighted, and it's stuck that way.
Sounds like you hit CTRL-A. Hit it again.
20 minutes later
I did what you said, but it's still there.
Let me repeat. Hit CTRL-A.
45 minutes later
So I keep hitting control, eh? But nothing's happening, eh?

Please disregard the duplicate comic preceeding this one. This is why we don't enter the title before we finish the comic lest the cat walk across the keyboard causing you to save it.

Hello? I am having problems with my new computer. When I turn it on the screen never shows anything.
Did you turn the monitor on?
Oh.. where do I do that? Say, before I forget, I tried to use this free AOL disc I got but I don't have any mail. Isn't it supposed to tell me I've got mail?
Well first you need to turn on the monitor. Then, have you connected your modem to a phone line or cable?
What language are you speaking?
I'm sorry. There's not much I can do. You see, all your problems are due to 'One D Ten T' errors. Do you understand? 1D10T!!

Dear Ann, My robot boyfriend and I feel like we're ready to have sex, but I'm worried about catching a virus or getting pregnant with a cyborg. What precautions should I take? Virgin in Virginia.
Dear Virgin, So long as you're not having cybersex with your boyfriend, you don't have to worry about viruses. And cyborgs are made not born. He can't get you pregnant.
Dear Ann, I disagree with the advice you gave to Virgin in Virginia. I had sex with a robot and was infected with nanobots that carry the Trojan virus. Helen in Greece, NY.
Dear Helen, Thank you for correcting me. Dr. Susan Calvin informs me that nanobot infection is a serious danger for humans in robot-human sex. It can be treated with virus-killer nanobots.
Dear Ann, You omitted an important issue in your response to Helen in Greece, NY. A virus-killer nanobot can attack only known viruses, yet new viruses are being written every day. Bible-Belt Hacker.
Dear Hacker, Thank you for raising the important point that robot-human sex always remains a danger. Robots should be careful too, because infected humans can infect them.
