Experiences with non-techies

Recommended Posts

Ok, you win (the worst internet award). The worst thing is that my download is more-or-less twice yours, yet it's only a 0.4meg difference. That's how sad it is with low numbers. Even a 2meg connection would more-than half my download times for steam :(

OK, wow, I'm 37% faster today :o

Yeh, upload is terrible, but ping time is great!

 

Lets take this in to a PM.

No, you're confusing that with silicon valley. In terms of computers, America is extremely good. In almost every other field of engineering, Germany and Japan dominate. (Hitachi's old hard disks, for example...)

The US have advanced engineering in all fields, with high budgets and a lot of government backing. They are among the world leaders in research of all fields. It is hard to point at one single country and claim that it is the best or one is better than the other.

Actually, there are several European countries that are far more advanced in terms of sustainable energy technology and infrastructure. North America is really behind in that regard and is not the most advanced country(s) in every field.

Personally I don't get it to much, but I have a few that I can remember are reoccuring events. Most of my experience is with design programs and 3DS max. So most of mine is the magical button that does every thing for me. They always think its so easy to build a 3d model or make an animation. "You just gotta push a button thats all......." So they expect the finished product within a couple days, then I have to start explaining and showing what it takes. Happens all the time.

 

I did have a time whne someone asked if they can download a processor, sooooo...yeah. Then I said "no you can't download a CPU." The reply was interesting, "You miss heard me, I said Processor."

 

Thats my short story for today.

my sister used to turn off her netbook by longpressing th e powerbuttom

Did you finally tell her how she should turn it off?

Also I like your profile picture. Gorillaz Souldchild Remix isn't bad, and Clint Eastwood is a nice song by them too.

The last time I thought Alienware was the best PC in existence, I was probably 13 or 14. Please tell me this isn't someone over the age of 18.

My wife and her sister were watching pewdiepie on her sister's laptop on our bed the other night. I suggested they put a book or something solid under the laptop so it can breathe and doesn't overheat - which they did. The next day, she's typing on her laptop, which was now sitting in a pillow on her lap... I give up. lol

my grandpa got rid of his internet and computer and told me to clean up the wires but he would not absolutely not let me unplug the adsl splitter he thought it would stop his phone from working


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

I've got a friend who blames viruses for every single fault on his laptop. He also games on his 400€ laptop and thinks it's a great machine or something.

Also, a guy at a local PC store will format everything he's given, for no reason at all, and will charge 20€ for that. So glad I know computers now...

-One week after I had built my new gaming PC my cousin's came over to my house and they own a mac and one of them thinks that he knows every thing about pc's so he asks me how much $$$ I payed for it and so I tell him and then he goes to YouTube (after asking were my browser is) and looks up how to build a GAMING PC FOR $200 and he clicks on a video and after the video he says ''This will be like super powerful I will run all games on MAX'' [Roughly translated]  And I tried not to laugh and the PC was realy only good for minecraft at low settings.

 

 

 

- Later that day My other cousin decided to download Minecraft on my pc because she thought it would be cool to play with mod's. So she goes to this website to download the mod and

the site is just spammed with download button ad's and I guess she like downloaded the one with the ''biggest button'' and after that she downloaded them all so later that night I go to my desktop and I open chrome and it has tons of plugins and toolbars so I open AVG and it finds like over 2000 issues. #not leaving my cousin alone EVER!

My school uses old dell latitude netbooks with retardedly slow atoms on them (from 2007) and is slowly switching to HP Chromebooks. For desktops, there is a mixture of old Dell Optiplex 790s (i think) with core 2 duos and 40 gb hard drives and newer Dell Optiplex 390s with sandy bridge i3s. Both are used with integrated graphics. The newer ones are used for CAD works and are really damn slow.

My school is too. I'm buying a G550Jk instead of using Chromebooks *shudder*.

  I get about 2 MBs downloading games if my bro is not using the internet. 2MBs is 16Mbs. I forgot to mention that my uncle lives in a city so his internet is naturally slower.

wouldnt living in a city make it faster?

wouldnt living in a city make it faster?

Not necessarily. Most houses in cities have at least a 50:1 contention. I haven't heard of more before, but I'm almost certain it happens. This situation on a copper co-ax cable could mean speeds of lower than 20Mb/s (for all connections at once at 50:1).

I'm glad to have decent internet, but I live in a well placed town in England (so I don't have to pay 4 billion dollars...)
