Picks

Tech/Geeky/ Pet Peeves.

* Stew
o People who call a philips screwdriver a "star"

* Tim
o Someone asks "can you just quickly re-install my pc for me".

* Cecilia
o People who sit on Twitter/Facebook - but ask dumb questions and never bother to Google. Google search bars are EVERYWHERE... Just type it in and whack the damn key.

* Barry
o When some one contacts you for an opinion on something they are doing, with the intention pushing their problem over to you.

* Jeff
o Too many too mention!!! spelling, bits vs bytes, cryptic facebook status, people on chat who say "you there?", this whole uncapped accounts / shaping / AUP stuff on the go.
