That moment when you're sitting in class, it's silent and all, and you just go ham with the Keyboard ~90-100 wpm and the guy next to you gives you this stare as if you're hacking the sh!t out of something (and I'm just typing on a Lenovo L560). It would be interesting to see their reaction to my Coolermaster Masterkeys Pro S RGB with MX Browns.

* Manager freaking out * : How come user X doesn't have *business application* installed?? He needs this application to work!

* Calm tech * : No problem, we'll fix that ASAP!

 

... business application is an online application, you can't install it ... but knowing the users, the tech goes to \\computer\c$\user\desktop\ and puts a shortcut to the website. He then call the user and have him try the shortcut (and it works, of course).

 

User left a 5 star review praising the tech ... for putting a shortcut on his desktop ... for an internal website that can be reached from the intranet home page ... *sigh*

Dude, I make everything here desktop short cuts, it's easier for older people to understand than say a bookmark bar or whatever. The visual representation is key, I assign a special icon to each so they can tell them apart more easily for the more older people I work with.

So I mentioned this in a status update, but:

My CPU overclock was a bit unstable because the VRMs on my mobo couldn't supply enough power. I removed the VRM heatsink to apply thermal paste and replace the thermal pad. When I removed it, it fell on my brand-new 1060 and killed it.
