Luckily, I can send them to the genius bar if they have REALLY messed up the device. Never got to do that with the old Windows laptops.

"Sounds like my relatives  -- especially those who call at midnight with their computer questions. This SLA is easy in my orbit!"

Jastroff, if you are on 24*7, you are suppose to answer even in midnight.

"My relatives show up for dinner with laptops and iPads in hand for tech support consult.

Laurianne, now a day's these two are unavoidable parts of life. Even in sleeping also, they used to keep these devices by the side of pillow.

Re: Holiday tech support
"I have seen some really bad SLA's during my career and it always makes me wonder who was the person who signed off on it ?     Of course they are never there anymore."

Technocrati, when vendors prepare SLA's they used to incorporate all the points which are relevant and favorable to them; which is always a one sided agreement. So its better to have a legal opinion before signing any such agreements.

@Laurianne     Really ?   You are such a kind person to do tech support during the holidays, but if they are really kind relatives than it is much easier to take.  : )

Re: Holiday tech support
Yeah, I can absolutely relate to this, often its the "hey, while we're waiting on dinner, can you pop upstairs and take a quick look at my computer(s)? I'm having trouble with "X".  It'll only take a minute". There's no such thing as a free dinner it seems!
