It's shocking that a working knowledge of INI files (or files of equivalent layout and function) is evidently not a requirement of working in an IT support role.

A software upgrade for a colleague removed an important settings menu, so I bypassed it by copying the relevant lines from the old .ini file into the new one, thus overriding the defaults without any need for actually going into the menu to do it. He seemed generally confused as to what I was doing, didn't realise you had to copy the section header into the ini file, and just generally learned something new.

But it's scary to think that he didn't already know this - it's hardly rocket science! These young kids today just have no idea how computers actually work... I'm sure if he'd used enough Windows 3.11 / modified Red Alert through his teens, he'd be much better qualified.
