\> WELCOME TO TFTS! <
TFTS is where we post our amazing Tales From Tech Support, including but not limited to:
Incredible Feats of Networking Heroics;
Tech Troubleshooting Under the Direst of Circumstances;
Unsolvable Problems Cracked by Sheer Genius and/or Pure Luck;
Moral Support after Having Dealt with Difficult Clients;
And of course, Stupid User Stories!
There's a bit of a lull in the queue just now, so kick back, grab a cold one from the secret tech fridge behind the server rack, and share your best tales among friends here at TFTS!

Rule Ø : Your post must be a written story about tech support. Please do your best to make it interesting, readable and concise.
≈ POSTING GUIDELINES ≈
i. Anonymize your info, both personal and/or company. This is a Reddit rule.
ii. Keep your posts & comments SFW. Derogatory, abusive or bigoted language will be also removed.
iii. No posts that ask a question or solicit information (e.g. tech tips, industry advice, "What's your story?", "Does anyone else...?" etc.)
iv. No image links unless they are ONLY providing additional context to your written tale.
vi. No customer complaint posts. This includes "The Incompetent ISP" and "LOL My Teacher Is Dumb."
vii. No pranking or hacking tales. Tech support is about helping people, not messing with them.
Rule ∞ : Don't be a jerk. Just don't. We get enough jerks at work. If you can't participate without being one, we don't want you here.
In particular, Reddit Truth Police will be banned without warning. That will happen.
