People thinking they can download RAM....

If any one ever goes to that site they should have all of their internets taken away.

They  mainly said they don't like it because its making fun of people that know nothing about technology, when the reality is that most people don't need to or care.

Tbh those 'my old relative doesn't know how to use a phone' aren't as funny as people who pretend to know that they know about tech when they know nothing, or refuse to take any advise or accept the fact that they are wrong and then go on to do something stupid.

There's indeed quite a difference between someone who doesn't understand tech but tries to get a grasp on it even if it's difficult for us and them, and then there are people who are clueless about tech but act like they're experts and shit.

Someone should tell schools that even a small 32 GB SSD makes the computers almost new again. I once had to edit on a system with a quad-core i7. Not bad, but there were only 8 gigs of ram, one shitty, dusty cooler, and a fucking HDD.

If only kids knew how hard it is for a school to actually get purchases approved and how much money stuff costs when you're buying enough machines for all the labs.

If it weren't that hard the school system where I work would have much better technology. Unfortunately, I have a very limited budget and can only work through vendors with a state vendor contract, so I can't just order rando stuff off Amazon.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

That shouldn't be surprising.  Offices, schools and universities typically have far superior connections than residences in order to cope with having hundreds of users sharing it at the same time.

I don't know your particular business so can't comment on how they handle things, I was talking about how these things are normally handled.  It could be that is the lowest business grade plan available in your area, that head corp. just decided that there is a standard issue for most sites or something else.

That I very much respect, often I find that when people ask for advise, the easiest people to teach are the people that are willing to think logically and try to understand, even when they know nothing. But people that think they know everything are near impossible to explain anything to.

At least an SSD or SSHD. I'm not saying you need a gayming i7,  but even an old i3 with at least an ssd in place of a hard drive is better.


I can crash a computer in 30 seconds by running a .bat file with the contents %0|%0.

I can crash a computer in 1 second by yeeting it.

I also now have about 7 GB of viruses on an autorun flash drive.

Which i find odd. Maybe it's a british humour thing but i can enjoy a good laugh at people doing dumb stuff without either of us taking it as me making fun of them. We all do dumb stuff from time to time. Just because there's very good reasons for us being so incredibly dense about somthing doesn't stop it being funny as well.

 

Which  isn't to say you can't go about things the making fun way, i sadly have a lot of experiance with that one as well, it's all about the way you approach it.

It takes 3 minutes to start up the computer, then another 3-4 minutes before programs are usable.

That reminds me, So back in 1998, not gonna shame the college for this, but it was under the previous BC NDP government in a small city. We got an upgrade from what was a 56K line for the entire campus to something at least T1 around December. Remember 1998. Nobody in the city had anything better than 56K dialup, Shaw would not offer cable modems for two more years, and Telus didn't offer DSL at all at the time, and wouldn't even offer to install ISDN lines if you asked for it.

 

So when I first went to the college, the Windows 98 lab was running obsolete AV software, and every machine was infected with Win95CIH (IIRC). Now how did I discover this and not the IT staff? Because, over the painfully slow 56K line, I managed to update the AV software, and yeah, you know where this story is going. This lab was used for the new program I was in and I couldn't get anyone to listen. Another machine in the Win98 lab had someone's piracy server on it, and the name was familiar but I wasn't interested in it so much as resolving the virus problem. Did it get resolved? I will never know. But if you know what the CIH virus does, I can imagine what happened four months later to the 98 lab.

 

The NT lab was different though, The NT machines did not have any viruses on them, so I felt comfortable using them, but they were also using Java 1.0.2 and the books they had us buy were for Java 1.1. The teachers for all of these classes were just, not knowledgeable to teach the classes they were being paid to teach. 

 

Which is why I have to emphasize to people that you do not need to go to college/university if you just want to work on computers. There is nothing holding you back from learning it yourself. If one is genuinely interested in programming difficult things that are of a research variety (eg AI, Robotics, DSP's, computer vision), then yes go take computer science. But understand that if the teacher sounds like they don't know what they are doing, that speaks loudly about the competency of the entire department.

My old laptop (HP Pavillion BS) also had 5400 RPM with 8 MB of cache. That thing took half an hour to boot Windows 8 (Windows 10 was actually slower on it and it was full of viruses). Even at 0 percent load there was a 1.5-second lag when moving the cursor.

Even my old T7300 based laptop with a 5400 RPM drive can boot Windows 7 faster than that! 

(I'm about to force a BIOS update and install 10 it.)

I can crash a computer in 30 seconds by running a .bat file with the contents %0|%0.

I can crash a computer in 1 second by yeeting it.

I also now have about 7 GB of viruses on an autorun flash drive.
