Smoking

Most of the support calls that come in to the Piazza helpdesk are quite routine – a virus infection, a broken Windows installation, a dodgy network cable, and so on.

It's therefore quite nice when you get to deal with one that's not so common. Like the call I've just taken from a girl with smoke coming from her laptop. At least she seemed to see the funny side of it, anyway :-)
