Client: “My friend says that he has a website that runs regardless of whether or not the internet is working.”

Me: “No he doesn’t.”

Client: “Are you calling my friend Kenneth a liar?”

Me: “No, just that maybe Kenneth has been… misguided.”

Client: “Maybe. He DID send a lot of money to that Nigerian prince a while ago.”

:lol:

Kenneth is correct. All websites will run quite happily without the Internet. They won't get any traffic but they will still be there ready and waiting.

For my sanity I have to believe some of these are fiction in the BOFH stupid boss/beanounter/HR droid style.

CLIENT: “… Also, on this page when you click on a link, it breaks the web”

ME: “Sorry, which part does it break?”

CLIENT: “It breaks the WHOLE WEB!”

ME: “Do you mean it breaks that page, or the whole website shows an error page?”

CLIENT: “No, I click on the link and now the Internet is not working”

ME: “What, all of the Internet?”

CLIENT: “Yes.”

Please note, this entire conversation took place over the internet

Do you know how much time I've wasted on this site? I'm convinced some of this must be made up! :lol:

Checking the Traffic

Me: (over the phone) “Are you busy right now?”

Client: “Sort of. I’m just checking the traffic in and out of our business.”

Me: “Oh good. We’ve been having a good couple of weeks, haven’t we? What kind of figures are you seeing?”

Client: “No one so far.”

Me: “That’s impossible, I checked Google analytics the other day.”

Client: “Ya, I’m just using street view”

Me: “Street view?”

Client: “On Google Maps. Just checking to see who’s coming and going.”

Me: “That’s an image, not a live video.”

Client: “Phew!”
