Whiz Kid

As we Silver Surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.

I had a problem with mine yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old whiz kid next door, whose parents say his room looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over to see if he could fix it.

Eric pressed 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 an ID ten T error.'

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired,

'An, ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'

Eric grinned ...'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: ID10T

I used to like Eric, the cheeky little sod. :-|
