Counter-Strike technical support. What can I say, I thought it was funny. [Wave. WARNING: it fades out, do not turn your volume up]

I have no sound card, transcript?

You're probably just waiting to buy a soundcard. It's this kind of impetus you need, to make you buy a soundcard.

Sounds like a prank call to me...was this supposed to be real?

Opening the main link in Firefox on Fedora Core 2 causes the browser to shutdown. Must be a bug in in the Linux Firefox build. Site opens fine using Firefox on winXP.

The sound file itself (actually an mp3 with a .wav extension) is pretty funny. Is it real? Sounds like this guy has issues.

This is a prank call, right?

Obviously fake. Funny, but fake.

That was stupid and pointless and if this was fark it still wouldn't be funny. Show me the funny Jerry.

I think it's real. The opening part is too boring for it to be a prank call.

This is nothing. Imagine Microsoft's support line for X-Box Live.

I think it might be real. But some of the sobbing seems fake.

uh-huh. Well I got it working, can't say it was worth it. That's one real loser, or soemthing who's an even bigger loser, that they have time to pretend to be such a fake loser.

Suck.com's mention of Steven Thrasher's message [mentioned above, "Still my all-time favorite tech support call"]. Suck explains why the message is likely not a fake. Apparently, Thrasher felt the distribution of his message, "has ruined his reputation." It has been six years since Thrasher left his message...
