When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is a mule. @ 01:38 pm

This is my conversation with tech support about a failed card we had.

Me: Ya we have a major alarm on this card here, it says "Equipment Failure"
Support: OK I'll just need to get in and get some logs
Me: Ok you need console access?
Support: Ya that'd be great
Me: Do you have PUTTY?
Support: Ya I do
Me: Ok we'll just need to SSH into a local box here and then you can telnet in to the machine and get the logs
Support: SSH? What's SSH?
Me: It's like telnet but it's encrypted
Support: Oh well in that case I don't have PUTTY

I wonder what he thought you meant by PUTTY the first time. Like, did he have silly putty in his hand at the time.
