I just saw this on another list I follow. I have no relationship with this
at all but know that many of us could have something to submit.

Call for Submissions

Sometimes, tech support requires more patience than what's in the job
description. For an anthology of humorous tech support stories, the editors
seek quality non-fiction accounts of bizarre requests, inane questions, and
pitiful pleas for help untangling technology.

Entries should be between 500 and 1500 words. The anthology will be
published in e-book format, and authors may appear anonymously if so
desired. Preference will be given to stories involving face-to-face tech
support rather than support given over the phone.

To submit a story for consideration, email your entry as a MS Word, RTF, or
Open Office document to <usererror(at)> (replace (at) with @
in sending e-mail)

usererror -at- nicomachus -dot- net . Please include your name and contact information
(phone number and preferred email address) as well as a brief description of
your job responsibilities (e.g. network administration for a large health
insurance provider; end-user support for a major research university) in the
body of the email.

Submission deadline January 31, 2012.
