windows 10 on a core 2 duo is literally inhumane

Fak.

Don't wanna be on a dead OS in less than a year, though.

I'm trying to contact the person who has my DDR2 DIMMs for use in my Q6600 system.

I have 4 sticks of 2 GB DDR2-800 SODIMMS (no heatspreaders). DM me and I can mail some to you.


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.

I finally found a LTT fan at my school that isn't completely annoying. I was working on a class project (writing poetry, so I just decided to write mine about Linus and tech). We had to share poems with each other, I gave him my really cringey one about tech support. Blah blah blah blah

 

Later he sent me a bunch of Linus Face memes

isn't there a subreddit called LinusFaces or something?


Don't forget to use the "Quote" feature or mention me ( @Gegger) if you want me to see your reply!

Thank you so much!

I think my XPS 420 only accepts DDR2-667, I'll look it up. 

Edit: it supports 800 MHz DDR2! 

Spoiler

And if Dell didn't impose a limit against DDR3 on that board, I could have used my DDR3 DIMMS.

i used to bash the region for garbage IT untill i learned how fucking awful of a deal they had signed with dell and that they were stuck with for i think 10 years

Fortunately, my district doesn't have such a deal. We buy what we need when we need it. However, the problem is that our budget also comes from the same pool of money as payroll, books, supplies, maintenance, upkeep of buildings and grounds, etc., etc., etc. We're not a town rolling in money, so it is what it is. We got the kids from 2nd grade up HP 11" Chromebooks that are fantastic for what they're doing, so it's a step in the right direction. We're working on getting computers for programming classes and I'm going to be teaching a course in rudimentary audio production, so I'll be getting some machines for that, too.

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

When you're buying 400 computers an SSD will balloon the total expenditure. It's either hard drives or less computers for kids that are pushing the envelope playing Microsoft Excel.

My works internet is 200/200 direct fiber, and almost no one is ever on it. :D

We're upgrading from 1Gb LightPath to 2Gb LightPath in the school district where I work. The 1Gb is already tons better than the 500Mb FiOS we used to have.

 

Now, mind you, that's for the entire district of 700 employees and 4800 students.

When you're buying parts, sure. Do you really think a four-guy team is going to build 400 machines in between regular district maintenance, support tickets, and quarterly district testing which is all computerized now? I mean, if you want to volunteer to help, sure, but how many systems do you think you can build out in a day?

 

You know, I feel like this thread lost the plot. I thought it was supposed to be techie experiences dealing with non-techies.

That moment when students bring their personal Macbooks to school and the screen is coverd in fingerprints.

 

  1. Don't buy Apple products because they're ridiculously over priced, imo
  2. You never touch a Display that dosen't have touch input, you can damage it that way

Circa one year ago my sister started to go to university and for that great achievement (literally just going there) she begged for an MacBook (the small one) from my dad. He's all supportive and ofc gives her the 1400€ device that houses the EXTREMELY POWERFUL Intel M3 processor. 

Spoiler

At that time I already told everyone it was shit but why listen to the guy who sits on a computer forum the whole day and has tons of hardware laying around. 

 

Whatever, now today she posted a video of her working on her HUSBAND'S LENOVO THINKPAD for a university video project. 

I'm like: yo, don't you have a Mac for that? 

Her: ugh duh, I'm only making backups here. 

 

Yeah ofc OR MAYBE THE MAC JUST SUCKS BALLS?! 

 

 

But to everyone's defence: the Mac is rose-gold.

I'm sad that Apple butchered the Macbook. The old aluminum Macbooks are some of my favorite laptops ever made.

Remember that spoiled bitch who once stood on a HDMI Cable and broke the connector ? 

 

Yeah, I got two new storys from her: 

 

She was asking me if that is an iPhone "points at my phone", I reply with no it's a OnePlus 5t and she's like: Oh an "Android", it sure is the cheapest on the market !!! 

 

And on Thursday she came with that she "accidentally" changed the colour of the text in her word document. I go over, press CTRL+Z and she gives me this look as if I'm some sort of wizard. As if reversing things would be some sort of magic, lmao.

 

Also some Experience with non techies qoutes that I've heard over the last little while:

 

"Headphone jacks are obsolete"

 

"I never eject my USB" That's actually how he lost a couple of very important documents, I'm not even kidding.

 

"Why do I have no reception of Wi-fi nor celuar data in a concrete bunker ?"

 

One random dude had to do a presentation, he looked at his Macbook Air from 2013 for 3 Minutes straight only to realize it didn't have a HDMI port, and he's like: "HDMI is bullshit"

"I never eject my USB" That's actually how he lost a couple of very important documents, I'm not even kidding.

 

"Why do I have no reception of Wi-fi nor celuar data in a concrete bunker ?"

 

One random dude had to do a presentation, he looked at his Macbook Air from 2013 for 3 Minutes straight only to realize it didn't have a HDMI port, and he's like: "HDMI is bullshit"

Last year somebody said that iPhones have expandable storage, and that you could upgrade it in Settings. I said that the upgrade was for iCloud, and they said that I didn't know that because I had never owned an iPhone, even though I had seen the settings before.

They said that Apple remotely adds storage when you request it via the aforementioned settings page.

No, they weren't being sarcastic, either.

I have more featuring me. Just a reminder that I also used to be sped.

 

Yesterday, I experimented with cooling the VRMs via the back of the motherboard by using thermally conductive tape and small heatsinks. Parts of those heatsinks were not anodized, which meant that they were electrically conductive.

 

Guess who didn't even turn off their PC and started sticking heatsinks on?

One VRM sparked, the PC reset (no long-term hardware damage), and I corrupted a few documents.


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.

I ripped out USB 3 header pins before.
