>  A guy rings tech support to report that his computer is faulty.
>  Tech: "What's the problems?"
>  LUser: "There is smoke coming out of the power supply."
>  Tech: "You'll need a new power supply."
>  LUser: "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."
>  LUser: "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."
>   10 minutes later, the LUser is still adamant that they 
>    are 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."
>  LUser: "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.
>  LUser: "It didn't work. The power supply is still smoking."
>  Tech: "Well, what version of DOS are you using?"
>  LUser: "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.
>  LUser: "I need a new power supply."
>  Tech: "How did you come to that conclusion?"
>  LUser: "Well, I rang Microsoft and told him all about what you
>  said, and he started asking questions about the make of power supply."
>  Tech: "Then what did he say?"
>  LUser: "He told me that my power supply isn't compatible
>   with NOSMOKE."
