    A Simple Error

    As most Silver Surfers know – and the rest will soon discover – sometimes we have trouble with our computers.

    I had a problem yesterday, so I called Danny, the 12 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over. Danny clicked a couple of keys and solved the problem.

    As he was walking away, I called after him, ‘So, what was wrong?’

    He replied, ‘It was just a simple ‘ID ten T’.’

    I didn’t want to appear stupid, but nonetheless enquired.

    ‘An “ID ten T”??? What’s that? In case I ever need to fix it again.’

    Danny grinned wide…. ‘Haven’t you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?’

    ‘No,’ I replied.

    ‘Write it down,’ he said, ‘and I think you’ll figure it out.’

    So I wrote down:


    I used to like Danny.
