Tech Memes for the Computer Fiends

This one goes out to the heroes of every office, school and setting in need of general administration. The computer savvy, the IT people, the tech support and tech workers who know more about computers than everyone else and make Karen from accounting and Dave from sales look like the useless cave people that they are. But honestly, if you know literally anything about computers you'll probably get most of these. For more, here are excruciating moments of tech support gore as well as the story of a tech support worker whose manager threw out 40 computers not knowing what they were.

Gotta love that mention of "The Next Bill Gates?" It's been over a decade and sadly we haven't heard of Episoft. It's fine and dandy to build your own computer using old parts, and you can't knock them for ambition, but the way he talks about phoenixes rising from ashes is just awesome. You can expect a lot from a slow news day in Maine.

Manager Doesn't Know What A Computer Is, Throws Away Forty of Them

People have a pretty abysmal knowledge of computers, but almost never so bad that they try to have them removed from their office. IT people have to be very patient when a customer's computer won't work. Sometimes people don't know what a power button is. We don't envy people who have to deal with this level of ignorance on a daily basis.

A stupid boss doesn't know what computers are and asks to have them removed from the office.
