Techno turn-off.

Byline: Susan Lee

WE'RE all training on a new computer system here at the ECHO - a feat of mammoth proportions for a techno-fool like me.

Still, I thought things were going well until I arrived in work one day this week to find my shiny new computer blank-screened and dead as a dodo on my desk.

Panic. Had I broken it already? Was it faulty?

I pressed buttons and referred to my user manual and even gave it a light tap of encouragement - all to no avail.

With a deadline looming I summoned someone, anyone, from our IT department who saw what the problem was immediately - me - and put it right.

Well, what a damn stupid place to put the 'on' button.
