Situation under control.
Thanks! It's not mine.
Something copied off the intarwebs. I think it's my wife's revenge for the dad jokes I show to her. I'd tag her, but she's not yet convinced of the fediverse.

I keep fighting with fedilab, couldn't find where to enter the alt text *again*. Thank you for this!
@Dannyar On my tombstone, I want to have the number of stars the toot got engraved. At my current rate of ageing, and the number of stars so far, that might reach 0,1% of those users.
...yeah, this is a sad but true state of affairs here. I'm surprised there's not a term for it.
@jens Reminds me of a conversation I once had about the "See Tee Are Ell" key with an unidentified gentleman that called me out of the blue.
🤣 That is fantastic! What did he want? I mean, I have some guess, but what was the point of talking about the key?
@jens I think he wanted to guide me to the Windows key, to get me to run something to open up my PC to attack. But I blew it a bit after this fragment by answering "no" when he asked if it was a Windows computer.
I've had similar kinds of conversation with "Windows Support" scam callers. I just forgot the details and never recorded them. But yes, following instructions and being misleading as a consequence wastes their time, it's the best defence IMHO.
Something something Windows and I was running Linux at least was similar enough 😂
@psychospider As I said in another comment, this isn't my picture. My wife shared it from somewhere with me. So props should go to the original poster!
@psychospider Come to think of it, I have a German keyboard (with US layout), so I'd have to come up with a different meme. "Situation unter Steuerung" is a bit odd.
Now I want an animated cyberspace movie where some attackers enter the keyboard, and security reports to the master control program "Sir, we have a situation under Control!"
The master control program raises an eyebrow.
"Wow. Finally, after all those years. And I thought you were useless."
