Our network access here at work has been down for 2 days because of virii. Argh! And the tech support guys don't speak english.
LOL I've seen Windows' blue screen of death at a bank machine ATM and also on another kiosk (can't remember where or what it was for, many yrs ago).

I know exactly what you mean with regards to tech support in India. I'm in IBM also and part of my dept is in India!! I'm in Ontario, Canada! "Sorry I don't understand what you mean?"

The best is when you call those help people in India - and they introduce themselves as "Craig" or "Bill" - but they have the most severe Indian Accent I've ever heard (and I work with quite a few Indian fellows).

Dude, I know your name isn't Bill... who's leg are you trying to pull?

Hahahaha yeah, the fake names are pathetic. This guy didn't even attempt that one.

Generally internal IBM support is done in the US and Canada... so I was pretty surprised when I got India.

I'm thinking of The Simpsons and the episode where Apu tries to be American and hides, struggling, his accent.

Yup the group that is part of the dept. I work in is Internet process team. I tried to decode their listed phone number before... dang it's long.
