Of course, when she finally brings in the laptop, it's in bloody Mandarin.
I stare at it helplessly.
Now i've done complicated setups and troubleshooting on foreign language computers before - Hebrew, which was funny because the start menu was on the other side, i've done mail recoveries for a pommie girl on a french keyboard, with a german operating system that she bought in switzerland, i've even done chinese setups before.
What really fucked me this time was that it was WinXP. Win98 & Win2K i can do because i know what the pictures look like, even if i can't quite figure out exactly what it's saying, but WinXP in Mandarin. Nope. Can't do that one...
