    If I was the parent, yes. I told them not to, they did it anyway. That constitutes punishment. I may let them have it back in the future, I may not. But as the parent, that decision still ultimately rests with me, not the kid.

    If my kid disobeyed me and bought something I told them not to, you better believe I'm not gonna let them use it.
     
    It's not out of spite, it's because he shouldn't have it since I told him not to.

    Crunchy Dragon reacted to dizmo in Worth it to upgrade to 1050 TI, or wait for 1080?   
    How much longer is it going to take you to save up for the 1080?
    Obviously the 1050Ti is a shit card compared to the 1080, and frankly isn't a good buy in general, with the RX570 being a much more solid choice in that price bracket.

    I would suggest listening to your parents.
     
    While you live in their house, they ultimately control what you do/don't bring into the house and what you can/can't buy.
    You could try to talk it over with them, but ultimately, they will have the last word.
     
    Gotta be honest, this seems to go against this:
    Here's a bit of terrible advice:
    You technically own nothing whilst under the age of 18. Once you turn 18, that becomes your property, legally.

    Crunchy Dragon got a reaction from LienusLateTips in Will upgrading my ram work fine?   
    Just about any of those will work, pick the one that's cheapest and looks best in the capacity you want.
    The only catch is they won't run at the stock speed, but you can always overclock it if you need to.
     
    I personally run a Ryzen 5 1600 with 8GB of DDR4-2133 and have no problems at all.

    Crunchy Dragon got a reaction from Saksham in saying royal   
    I see far more people typing "battle royal" than I hear say "royale" in place of "royal"; I'd probably say that if anything, it's the opposite of your statement, and you're probably in the minority.
    I've said "royalty" to a few Brits in the past few months, but that's about as close as I get.

    My aunty told me that her laptop "isn't working".
    The next week she brought it over and showed me.
    Her Norton Antivirus subscription had ended and the pop-up warning screen is all red so she thought her laptop wasn't working?!?!?
     
    Another one... same Auntie.
     
    Her e-mails stopped working in the Windows Live mail client (from Windows 7), I had to clear some cache to get it working which meant you had to re-link your e-mail account to the client, she has no clue what her password was and we had to contact some Microsoft help-line to get her account back, it took about 2 days...

    "My laptop keeps turning off when I'm using it", she brought it in, got her to replicate the "crash", turns out she was just running out of battery (note: laptop is 8 years old at this point, it manages about 20 minutes of battery life).
