Re: The Plumber and the Brain Surgeon
This was back in the days of the old mainframe computers that were the size of refrigerators.
This company's computer stops working, and nothing they do gets it going again. Finally, they call IBM, and IBM sends out one of their best techs.
The tech walks in, looks at the computer for 2 minutes, plugs it in, turns it on and everything works great. He presents a bill for $10,000.
The CEO blows his stack. "TEN THOUSAND DOALLARS???? ALL YOU DID WAS PLUG THE BLASTED THING IN!!!!"
So the tech takes the bill back and rewrites it: "Plugging computer in: $10.00; knowing what to do: $9,990.00."
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
