the essential point - help others to get what they want out of their machines.
support experience - usually the computer is right, ie the problem is operator error.
essential point - read a lot, particularly manuals and books on the programs (and machines ) you support.
major difficulties - operators who will not read
challange - to get the job done dispite the above.

Alot of these guys will agree with me when I say that there are many people out there that are not as computer literate as they think they are. As a matter of fact, some are downright dangerous. They give other users faulty information and can cause more problems than they correct. I believe whole-heartedly in Sico's statement, but I have to add one thing, "Make Them Learn!" I know that they keep people like us in business but the biggest thing I hate is when you been working on computers as long as we all have and a "customer" tell's you "I didn't do anything, it just started on it's own." This can be very interesting sometimes.

People who sell cars get the same problems, infact a lot of people are ignorant not just to computers. With this in mind and knowing im ignorant (for instance if you stuck me in a jet plane) I put myself in there shoes. Diplomacy is also a must. Never tell the customer, help them learn. I agree people who think they know a lot are a problem, but normally explaining or going through a procedure will set them right and prove them wrong (in a diplomatic way).
