Not my story, was told that from one of our tech ;

 

We recently migrated a client to Office 365, and that included OneDrive. One specific user asked for help with his OneDrive setup (nothing out of the ordinary, for some reason we don't know, they were using 3 different solutions, but transferred all that to OneDrive).

 

So we know this user isn't tech-savy and has issues understanding simple concepts. So, as a precaution, the tech that did his OneDrive setup, made a backup of his OneDrive folders (after they were all synched) to one of the file server.

 

A few hours later, he called back complaining that OneDrive wasn't working properly... Turns out, he went one his online OneDrive account and did some "cleanup" and then was confused as to why the deleted files and folders weren't on his PC anymore!!!

 

The tech was adamant that he explained to him how OneDrive worked BEFORE setting it all up, and he spent another hour explaining that it's not some sort of "backup solution" but rather has to be seen as an "external driver". He still doesn't understand and today has asked for "features" to use OneDrive... we're not MS and can't add features to retail softwares! And OneDrive isn't a backup solution and can't be used the way he wants ... the tech his still bashing his head on his desk!

It can be almost amazing to see how dumb some people can be at tech. Sure, it's a bit complicated at first, but you should at LEAST know how to use a computer without losing all of your files or somehow deleting critical files on the C drive.

Showed the secretary how to print an invoice to PDF and email it today. Twice. She calls me in to ask how to scan something, I start showing but stop and ask what and why, she says to email an invoice. Both times. She's old and she can't remember so she takes notes but then later can't manage to make sense of her notes.

Story time!

Two days ago:

 

"Intel is better than AMD because AMD runs slow and hot."

Me: "Actually, AMD just released 7-nanometer processors that promise to run faster, cooler, and cheaper than Intel."

"Ha shaddap you dumb AMD fanboy. Intel CPUs come with coolers."

Me: "Nope". *shows them pics of superior AMD stock coolers* "Processors like the 9700K don't come with stock coolers."

"I just ordered a 9900K, so you can shut up and i'll show how fast it is"

 

Looking forward to beating him in Cinebench with Zen 2. (When I get one.)

This is a common misconception among those who are ~50 or older, those who grew up when computers first became a thing. Simply because in the early days of PC's (especially 286,386,486, and early pentiums) this was incredibly true.

 

Now though? Pffft. Imagine thinking Intel CPU's dont roast.

I think that even a simple OC'd 8-core Zen 2 chip can beat a 9900K (AMD has the IPC advantage now). That is, if I can convince my parents to get me a better CPU and mobo combo (the current VRM's cannot handle more than 100 watts and I am currently pushing it to the limit.)

Theoretical IPC advantage, we don't know for sure AFAIK.

Yeah, we can't personally verify it. But from Cinebench runs done on-stage, AMD beat Intel by a few points while at a lower frequency, so I'd say they're looking pretty good for now.

Zen 2 looks really good tho, will admit. I want AMD to beat Intel for the sole purpose of driving innovation on team blue. 14nm is getting older by the day.

Yep. Shrinking a die from 14 to 7 nanometers multiplies the die area by 0.25.

 

Also, the I/O die on AM4 Zen 2 chips is on GlobalFoundries's 12 nm process, not 14.

Fair point.

At stock, the 3900x looks like the equivalent, though.

Staying on Zen 1 for a while, only got my 1600 in April. (For $80!)

Now that my phone is dead, I'm forced to use a Kindle Fire HD 6: 1 GB memory, the hottest, slowest, shittiest processor ever, and 8 GB of memory. Not even enough for anything more than Jetpack Joyride and Bad Piggies on there.

At my office, we had a server that kept getting over filled and needing more space.  Management complained all the time about how we were using so much data and just kept expanding the system storage.  None of our folders were ever that big and everyone was pointing fingers about who was the data hog.  Turns out "Someone" (Read an unnamed manager) tried to have their PC save a back file, but did it wrong and it made the PC back itself up to the server HDs every single day without ever over writing.  EVERY SINGLE DAY.  There were way more back-up files than there were actual files before anyone figured it out.

Hey at least his data is safe! xD

 

Seriously though...wow... if he was using one of those craptops with like a 2 TB hard drive or even larger, that would be like a $100 drive every day.

"You can't compare a $700 camera to a $1500 one!" 

 

True......but also not quite. See, some "cheap" cameras actually pack much of a punch to rival more expensive options. Take the Sony a6000 for instance. Yes, it's old at this point and yes, it has fuck-all native lenses for crop, but in terms of capability, it was a big deal back when it was new and holds up well today. 

 

Not to mention some of the "cheap" cameras actually pack in the guts of their more expensive counterparts, such as the Fujifilm X-T30, which packs in the sensor, processor and autofocus system of the X-T3 but at a lower price by $600.
