    I'm sure he's had a few calls from "Microsoft Technical Support" or "Windows Technical support" (in an Indian Accent) advising him he has an issue with his computer...

    C'mon Al, not all tech support people have an Indian accent.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    An educated guess tells me olani (now banned) has an Indian accent.

    Some of them have a Pakistani accent, can't you tell the difference?

    Please connect it to a speaker and then figure out the source of the tone. Does this beep come from the speaker or is it from the machine itself?

    They all sound either Indian or Asian to me, but I won't discriminate, I get their heads wobbling for sure; as I do with Aussies, Americans, or whatever they sound like, doing cold calling for whatever.
    If the misses answers the phone she blows their head right off.

    My missus just tells them she is calling the police. If I have the time, I keep 'em talking for as long as I can. Usually they say, I need to escalate this, and then the call drops out.
