    A plain computer illiterate guy rings tech support to report that
    his computer is faulty.
    Tech: What’s the problem?
    User: There is smoke coming out of the power supply.
    Tech: You’ll need a new power supply.
    User: No, I don’t! I just need to change the startup files.
    Tech: Sir, the power supply is faulty. You’ll need to replace it.
    User: No way! Someone told me that I just needed to change the startup
    and it will fix the
    problem! All I need is for you to tell me the command.
    Tech support: Sir, you do need a need power supply.
    10 minutes later, the User is still adamant that he is right. The tech
    is frustrated and fed up.
    Tech: Sorry, Sir. We don’t normally tell our customers this, but there
    is an undocumented DOS command that will fix the problem.
    User: I knew it!
    Tech : Just add the line LOAD NOSMOKE.COM at
    the end of the CONFIG.SYS. Let me know how it goes.
    10 minutes later.
    User : It didn’t work. The power supply is still smoking.
    Tech : Well, what version of DOS are you using?
    User : MS-DOS 6.22 .
    Tech : That’s your problem there. That version of DOS didn’t come with
    NOSMOKE. Contact Microsoft and ask them for a patch that will give you
    the file. Let me know how it goes.
    1 hour later.
    User : I need a new power supply.
    Tech support : How did you come to that conclusion?
    User : Well, I rang Microsoft and told him about what you said, and he
    started asking questions about the make of power supply.
    Tech: Then what did he say?
    User: He told me that my power supply isn’t compatible with NOSMOKE.
