Experiences with non-techies

Recommended Posts

I consider it very bad;

It is from e-bay.

It is used for years.

It has no warranty.

Slower than 260x.

 

99% of all non-techies think that AMD is soooooo bad that they should avoid it all all costs.

I used to be like this. All my rigs had Intel. But I bought an AMD laptop in June and got a Kaveri rig coming up!

Am I getting an actually new card or is it just a rebrand? Find out here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/222806-what-rx-200-series-card-is-what-7000-series-card/

There is so many other people using the same bandwidth, it gets really bogged down with all the traffic.

well not for me


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

My friend is going to buy an Alienware. Enough said.

No but really, he have a desktop, A10 6800, GTX 560, and that stuff, and he is planning to sell it to a friend extreamly cheap, give him a Razer Blackwidow and Razer Ouroboros, and buy the cheapest Alienware Aurora, i have tried to stop him, but he's not stoppable, so i'm just going to sit back and enjoy his face when he finds out that it was not worth the money, He asked me and my friends, everybody says no to the buy, and he's going to ask a tech forum, and i know everybody's going to say no, so that might change his mind, but to be honest, i actually hope he's going to buy it, just because he have never listened to any of my tech advices and it has gone wrong almost all the times.

Just upgrade the freakin graphics card and maybe some RAM! A10'll be fine with a good GPU

One day I will have my GTX 970. One day. PC specs are at my profile.

Not sure how to check what part works with what? Check out my compatibility guide!

This happens two to three times a month, to everyone using the service... GJ for trying to make the service work..

 

Get your telephone line checked? Any static/noise, etc. on the line will affect the ADSL service. You are quite a far away :(

Just to let you know I work for a small IT firm in the UK that deals with general support and installation of IT products such as APs, servers, network camera (more on that in a bit).

 

First off a very non-techie person who decided it would be a good idea to make a youtube video with her ipad filming her monitor, I almost got seasick, plus the lighting and focus was terrible, but worse that, she uploaded this video Publicly and spoke aloud her Username and Password. One of my colleagues had logged in remotely to her system to see what the problem, she logged in (remotely as well) and when exiting (I hope trying to log out) shut the machine down, this system was in an office some distance from her and it was the evening so nobody was there and the reason my colleague had logged in (he was made to logout), the customer was complaining she couldn't log in remotely to her system.

 

Lastly we were contracted to supply network CCTV cameras to a customer this was almost farcical, we arrived, got the cameras set up and then discovered the IT manager wanted to be able to record footage with no sound in a Citrix environment but had done to testing with the cameras in the several months he had had the cameras (he was telling us this at just 5pm) a month or so later my boss returned to site in order to finish the installation because they needed CAT5e to be wired into special RJ-45 connectors designed to fit into special waterproof sleevings, my boss showed up and showed the IT manager how to to it and left to go to a different site. about 2 weeks later we get a phone from the new IT manager (the old one had resigned out of the blue to join wait for it... an IT support and installation firm) saying the cameras were not showing video, so a couple of days later me and my boss show up test three cables, and all three were wired incorrectly. So we explained how to wire the cables correctly and because of the special sleevings the customer was going to have to spend a lot of money replacing the sleevings as the jacks could not be replaced, as we are leaving we are told he and the only other remaining member of their IT support are also leaving soon (they have now left).

Don't think that would cause it since literally everyone using the service started experiencing this about 2-3 weeks ago. :( Problem is I know the owner of the place and he usually is the only one running it. It's not that he runs out of time for it, it's just he's lazy... I know him and his whole family. They barely do anything.

This isn't really a story about a specific non-techie but at the end of the school year my principal announced that we are going to be getting more chromebooks for the upcoming school year and I just face-palmed -_-. The reason why is because my high school pretty much revolves around computer programming and software development so they should be getting PC laptops that can actually do all of that stuff, not chromebooks!

Chrome Books can actually be pretty good in Computer Programming and Software Development, but some of the better software for assisting people in things like that may not be available for the Chrome OS. If they find a program that runs you should be fine using it.

Speaking of which i need to teach my grandpa and my granny how to print every time i go to their house.

My mom refuses to allow me to install AdBlock even though I constantly tell her that the site she watches her Asian dramas is riddled with ads and viruses, her laptop has an Ivy Bridge i7 for watching videos on an ad-riddled site, and email. While I try to edit videos on a Celeron. Fuck my life.

It Pains me when i see my friends cringing for Clash of Clans hack and other facebook games hack. Ive told them many times that theyre mostly server-sided, explained to the through Non-Techie language but still... Recently my tech savvy friend #2, has some CoC hacks, i told them not to believe it but they insisted. well i tried everything to stop them from giving their phones away. yes, they did gave their phone to Tech Savvy Friend #2... Till now it has not been returned, reason? "The Hack is hard to get it downloading and it only works with certain phones". Believe it or not Tech Savvy Friend #2 dont have any Android or iOS. Oh and the indonesian government curriculum implemented that we go to school in saturday and removed English and IT lessons.

Lots of them. (depending on what you mean)

Small(ish) supermarket (mom and pop store, kwikEmart et all type for our leftpondian cousins) near where my mum lived was mainly a bread/milk type store with couple of shelfs of tins of soup/veg etc also had various cables (USB to miniUSB etc) on sale. and LOTS (strangely) of mobile phone cases.

 

Didn't have MBs, processors, graphics cards etc if that is what you meant by "computer parts".
