I really don't envy you IT guys sometimes. Well, I don't envy you ever tbh, but ESPECIALLY not at times like these

the gap....might be large enough to not spark...but I wouldn't chance it. One little jostle and...... zzzt. The cable is fairly standard and easily available so I hope this is just a joke. Though being as old as it is, the DVD drive might not work anymore. PS3's, at least big fat A/B/E models, use big three slot PC style power cables. 4's/5's went back to the C7, though the PS5's is the polarized version.

I had to enable the "legacy" text import wizard in Excel this morning. Though really I had to find out about this legacy import wizard first.

Excel keeps wanting more of what it wants.

I worked help desk part time for a few years. I'm pretty sure they hired me because of my height (I'm not tiny, but was certainly the shortest person in the department), as I would be put on all the calls that required going to (and then under) someone's desk and checking if the computer was plugged into the power/ethernet.
