    Also on the theme of being a tech, how many of you have done the saleman's job but never got the same rate of commission/payment?

    I got the first one from the optics overheat fuse on a Xerox 5114 during training. Oops, did we forget to mention that turning the machine off doesn't remove current from the exposure lamp circuit?

    I hit one of the fuser lamp terminals on a Lanier 6550 (Toshiba) and learned real quick what a hazard neutral switched circuits are. I also learned the metal case of a Ricoh Katana developer assembly carries developer bias, and was never so thankful as when the machine shut down and threw a bias leak SC code.

    Never did the tie thing - I try not to wear them for customers that have become regulars...

    Be careful in teaching your children it is acceptable to abort an inconvenient unplanned pregnancy because they may also determine it is acceptable to euthanize an inconvenient elderly parent.
