‘It’s Real Easy,’ Declares IT Guy About To Speak Incoherently For Next 30 Seconds

NASHUA, NH—Assuring a fellow employee at Pierce Advertising that restoring functionality to her work laptop would be “real easy,” the company’s IT technician Gary Wilson proceeded to speak in a virtually incomprehensible blather for the next half minute, sources reported Monday. “It looks like an Ntdll.dll error, so it’s pretty simple: Just select Environment Variables in the Advanced tab of Systems Properties, then rename the NLSPATH system variable to ‘NLSPATHOLD,’” said Wilson while standing over the shoulder of his seated coworker Alison Crawford, whose hopeless confusion and anxiety were only exacerbated by the IT specialist’s unintelligible instructions and repeated references to “the cloud.” “Or you could deactivate your Data Execution Prevention by locating Explorer.exe in your DEP tab’s C:\Windows directory, or disable your UAC through the Control Panel’s User Account Control settings. But then you’ll want to be cautious about which apps you use, got it?
