OMG! WTF? volume 1

Dear Aunty Nathan,

I have a problem for your problem page.

I have an important deadline to meet at work on Wednesday. I have
completely lost the file containing the work I have done and the work
I need to finish before Wed.

How do you suggest I blag my way out of this one?


Well, Q-diddy, I see your dilemma. I thought about this long and hard trying to determine what the bet possible solution would be for you. And then suddenly it was Wednesday and whatever answer I give you is too late anyway. So I guess the moral to this story is “If something seems really hard, just don’t do it, and then it will be over in one way or another.” Problem solved.

And now on to our second question:

is asking you a question like this good enough. it doesn’t seem as
fun. but when i use your link i’m taken to this computer’s Outlook
Express which my aunt uses and peruses and i don’t want her to wonder
what i’m doing when she’s gone.

Can you make it so that we stay at your site, or will you if this
becomes popular.

Slacking at Work, PA

Slacking, here’s the problem, your Aunt’s computer is set up to use the default settings for the “mailto:” function. Mailto: works just like http:// except instead of putting a web address after it, you put an email address. Assuming you don’t want to change the settings for when your Aunt uses the computer, I would suggest setting up a new user account on that computer and changing the default settings in Gmail to make it your primary outgoing message system.

And as far as the second part of your question, well hmmm…thus far my two questions have been very serious in nature so I can’t be exactly sure if, after reading my answers, people will find it as interesting as many people may have thought it would be.

But keep them coming and perhaps I’ll set it up right here, right now.

Thanks everybody for sending in your questions and remember, I’m hilarious.
