I become an IT specialist


Dear Hillary,

I put a computer terminal together and everything works well, other than the monitor. You can fire it up and the picture only lasts for five seconds and then it cuts out. I have a suspicion that the maid has been using it during the day and has pressed the wrong key. Can you put me in the right direction? Nobody else has been able to.


Dear Lauren,

You are really stretching my job description now. If the maid has a broken heart then perhaps I could do something. Why don’t you take it to TukCom? There’s an army of eager young people (and a couple of oldies) just waiting to fix it or sell you a new one. And change the password on the computer as well. And delete me from your contact list.
