My Sister emailed me today with a question (well two actually). Normally, a question from my Sister means I’m about to get hammered – it doesn’t matter what the question is, or what answer I choose, I’m going to get hammered. However, on this occasion, the question(s) seemed innocent enough and firmly within my realm of expertise: “Is a 200MB Zip file a lot of data for a CD and have you fixed my iPod?”. Overjoyed (and impressed that she knew what a Zip file was), I replied stating that 200MB would easily fit onto a CD and that her iPod was fixed and waiting for her to collect.
Her response: “Good, I’ll email it to you, so you can put it on a CD for me”.
