    My daughter sent away for a t-shirt from think geek and they not only sent the wrong shirt, but the wrong size. They let her keep it and sent the right one. She gave wrong shirt to me! I don't get the message. I think it has something to do with program language but I wouldn't bet on it.
    Anyway, can anyone tell me "simply put" what:
    >select * FROM users WHERE clue > 0 means?
    There was another line but I forgot it.

    The next line is "O rows returned".

    It's code to retrieve information from a database.

    Loosely translated, it means:
    "Find users who have a clue. No such users found."

    Thanks. I did google it and had a "very" general idea. The humor is lost on me so I guess I'll make up my own meaning and give it to one of my buddies. That way I can cop a laugh if they ever wear it.
    Thank you for helping!

    The key word here is "USERS". Most support geeks can tell you this is true of most of the USERS they support...

    ETA: my old boss in the computer center I worked in would often joke that there was only two "industries" where the customers were refered to as "users": ours, the computer industry and illegal drugs :rofl:

    I get it, USERS occupy the bottom of the food chain when it comes to computer knowledge.
    Thanks again!
