The 8 Types of Supporters

The Eager Beaver: "Sure, I can write an emulation program by this afternoon. One of those new boxes? I'd sure like to get my fingers into one. I think I know where there's one just down the hall." 

The Know-it-All: "Well, I could tell you how to do that, but I think I could recommend a better approach." 

The New Kid: "Do you have a dog? My name? I'll have to get back to you on that."

The Psycho: "READ MY LIPS, YOU BOZO! Are you STUPID or something?! YOU CAN'T DO THAT!" 

The Counselor: "Oh my. Oh dear. Uh huh ... yes ... and then what happened? Yes, I have plenty of time. Oh, no, no problem, that's my job." 

The Intimidator: "Why did you do THAT?! Haven't you had any TRAINING?! Don't you know Section 5.1.2.1.1 of the IEEE spec?!" 

The Veteran: "Oh! That's there for backward compatibility. They added it in rev 2.00.03 but they didn't document it." 

The Crispy Critter: "I don't know. I don't care. Your problem, that says it all, I have my own to take care of. Why are you using this product, anyway?"
