He failed using the wrong kind of pipe.
I figure he failed when he started downloading "messages from his office electronic mail system" to a device with what looks to be a single line LCD display.

I wonder if he could have used one of these:

Aww. My first computer. They show a British zx80 with 1k memory. Mine was the US Timex Sinclair zx81 with 4k ram. I don't know where they got their $200 figure from. Mine was under $100.

That changed my life. First I learned basic on it then z80 assembly language. I learned to program. Which I did for decades.

I hate playing tech support sometimes.

Hmm, why is their usb stick not showing up?

Wait, they stuck it in the ethernet port? What is worse it was my multiport dongle being used. Hopefully nothing got munged.

I did not think it would either! It seems there are two tabs inside of the socket that expand a bit but now I need to see if damage was done to it.

Honestly, how does someone even do that without noticing something is wrong? Like the fact that the socket has this huge space above and below the usb.
