PC Tech Support Challenge

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

If you're not doing anything tomorrow, you should swing by our PC Tech Support Challenge. :D Jay will be going up against Steve from Gamers Nexus to troubleshoot and fix two PC's we messed up and sent their way. :P

 

You can watch the stream below:

I really hope you guys did something sneaky like soldering a tiny wire to constantly short the front panel reset button even with the front panel cables unplugged. Would be hilarious to watch them never find that...

Oh boy I would have so much fun trying to sneakily mess up PCs in such a way to infuriate Steve and Jay, I would have so much fun messing with them :)

PST??  Isn't Canada on Daylight Savings?  I think you mean 12noon PT or PDT.  If we show up at 12pm PST we're going to miss the start by an hour.  How many points does LMG get deducted on this Tech Support Challenge for this? 😅

 

Ooo, do a TechQuickie how daylight savings works. "y u not no dis?"  Also how it messes-up where operating systems like Windows magically incorrectly displayed the file modified datetime for half the files or the other half of the files all year round LOL

@wall03: probably some technical issues. Linus had a bout of those on live streams recently.

 

Could well be we're an hour early! :(

Where da stream at? 

Was I too stupid for timezone math (again)?

Jay tweeted (3 hours ago) that the stream would be in 3 hours so I don't think so.

 

Maybe they need tech support for the stream so they can stream tech support :D

In the future, can we at least get a placeholder? I've seen other channels do this. That way you can load the page and just wait for the stream to start. As it is, there's no indication when or if you've gone live, so we just have to check periodically.

Would be nice. Not sure why LTT hasn't been doing this. I've never seen it for any of their streams. I saw one for GN's stream after this one.
