Welcome to the Chronicles of George!
This web site is a collection of helpdesk tickets gleaned from the support database of my first IT job. I was employed there for twenty months, and during that time I had the misfortune of encountering an individual whom I will call George.
George is, quite simply, the worst helpdesk technician ever.
His grasp on the written word is shakier than a canoe full of epileptics. His knowledge of computers is thinner than a Vegas dancer's chiffon underpants. He is, by all standards of intelligence, a rock.
While we worked together, George was responsible for turning out some of the most mangled, garbled, and just plain screwed up help desk tickets ever before seen by mortal man. I have taken these tickets and collected them, and I present them to you as a cathartic expression, a venting of fourteen months' pain and frustration (George's employ and my own overlapped by that amount of time).
Mean? Perhaps. Spiteful? Probably. Funny? Oh, most definitely.
Use the tabs above to navigate to different parts of the site. The first link, George Tickets, is likely what you're here for—click there to start at page one of George's tickets. Click on About for a bit more detail about the web site and its background. The FAQ contains a list of questions I am commonly asked, and might save you the sending of an e-mail. Site Map shows you a list of all of the CoG pages, if you're looking for something specific. Finally, Forums will send you to the Chronicles of George discussion boards, where you can talk about how screwed up George is, or vent some of your own tech support frustrations with a crowd of like-minded people.
