(11:09): That’s what they tell me.



(13:02): so i tried the on and off thing again, but its not working this time

(13:04): Why are you messaging me again.

(13:05): my roommate wouldnt help me and told me to text tech support

(13:06): I’m not tech support.

(13:06): you were really useful last time though

(13:08): Burn your laptop.

(13:09): great advice mate thanks

(13:09): but really im trying to connect it to the school wifi and it wont hook up

(13:09): im like half way thru my lecture and it still wont load





(13:24): omg thats my uni

(13:24): omg

(13:25): somehow i feel like that wasn’t a genuine response




(13:39): you saved me. its working. you’re brill

(13:40) : It’s amazing what Googling can accomplish.

(13:41): yeah yeah i get it, i need to find my own answers

(13:42) : Or at least attempt any kind of troubleshooting.

(13:43): who are you, btw?

(13:43): we clearly go to the same uni and I found your number in my notebook from last year

(13:43): so we know each other somehow

(13:45) : I doubt it.

(13:45) : Stop texting in lecture.




(14:06): okay i’m out of class

(14:06): who are you?

(14:07) : Not tech support.

(14:07): you’re a grump, mate

(14:08) : You’re a nightmare.



(20:17): please don’t hate me but do you know how to get onto the Watford grade database

(20:17): it keeps telling me to use my student PIN ID but its not accepting my student ID number

(20:19): Why don’t you ask your roommate?

(20:19): she’s not available

(20:21): It’s your first initial of your first name, then surname, then student ID.

(20:23): that isn’t written anywhere! that makes no sense at all!

(20:25): Have you never logged in to Watford Online before?

(20:26): no i did once last year, but my password autosaved so I never had to do it again, but then my laptop crashed this summer and everything got lost

(20:29 ): Here’s some tech advice: get a new laptop.

(20:32): wow, never thought of that before

(20:32) : Cheers



(13:03): hey! Thought you should know PrideSoc is giving out free donuts outside White Chapel

(13:07 ): Why is this information I should know.

(13:08): bc youve been helping me with my tech problems

(13:08): and i wanted to trade useful information

(13:09) : That is actually useful.

(13:10): so are you going to get a donut??

(13:10) : No.




(14:23) : That donut was subpar and stale

(14:25): really? I thought they were kind of good

(14:26) : So you’re technologically illiterate and have no palette. Noted.

(14:27): you think im an idiot, dont you

(14:30) : I don’t think anything of you. I don’t know who you are.

(14:31): we could fix that

(14:31) : I’d rather not.

(14:35): im positive we know each other

(14:36) : I doubt it. I don’t talk to many people.

(14:38): then why was your number in my notebook from freshers week

(14:40) : Who knows?

(14:40) : Maybe I was chatting you up .

(14:41): I would have remembered someone hitting on me

(14:46): also I’m a bloke

(14:47) : Yes, I assumed.

(14:47) : Mate.



(09:45): Do you happen to know the IT lounge hours?
