    This one time in 9th grade I was on the computer in my English classroom and I copied a PowerPoint slideshow to my flash drive.
     
    My English teacher says something along the lines of "Did you just put that on your thumb drive without opening it in PowerPoint?"
     
    I was like "Uhh...yeah."
     
    "Really?  Are you sure it saved?"
     
    "..."
     
    Apparently moving the file itself was a strange concept.  Apparently a lot of people think you have to open the PowerPoint and Save As to somewhere else.   :lol:

    MdX MaxX got a reaction from BlazingGunnerFTW in Kids Can't Use Computers... And This Is Why It Should Worry You   
    I wholeheartedly agree with this article.
     
    You'd think young people would learn how to use computers since they're constantly surrounded by them.  But many simply memorize steps.  Click this, press this button, swipe that.  And if for some reason that order becomes disrupted, they're totally hopeless.  People develop an expectation that a properly working piece of technology doesn't require you to think.
     
    And the ease-of-use characteristics of modern devices just exacerbate the tech illiteracy.  It takes absolutely no technological prowess to use an iOS or Android handset.  Most iPhone users probably don't even know what iOS is, and apparently every Android handset is either a DROID or a Galaxy.  They can get to the Play/App Store and download facebook, but if emails randomly stop syncing all hope is lost.

    I love my school. :D
    This was over break when nobody was here (that's about as high as down speeds get):

    And this is now when everyone's back on campus and it's like 9PM:

    Imagine my dismay when I'm home with my parents for break and am stuck with 12 down and 1.5 up...

    I think his point was that it's Photoshop.  One does not create vector images in Photoshop.

    Spec Sheet:
    Intel Core i7-2600K @ 4.6 GHz
    EVGA GTX 560-Ti DS @ 950 MHz (very mild OC)
    8GB G-Skill Ripjaws-X DDR3/1600
    Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3
    Corsair TX650
    Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
    Crucial M4 64GB
    Cooler Master Hyper 212+
    ASUS Xonar DG
    Cooler Master Storm Enforcer

    ASUS VH238H 23.6" Monitor
    Logitech B100 Mouse
    Logitech K120 Keyboard
    Logitech S220 Speakers (crap)
    Sennheiser HD280 Pro
    I bought 3 Red LED Sickleflows, one for the rear exhaust and two for the Hyper 212+ (I didn't know anything about fans back then okay :P) and a Megaflow for the top exhaust.
    It's been a year and a half, not sure what my upgrade plans are. I'll likely wait for the GeForce 700 series or Radeon 8000 series before making a GPU upgrade. I'd like to grab an H100i, but I'd have to upgrade my chassis first (or deal with a crooked radiator) and the H80i isn't worth it (free RAM slots isn't enough of an incentive lol). I might just throw some F12s on the Hyper 212+ or something for now, I don't know.
    Considering a CM Storm Mouse and Keyboard to complete the image. I'm no Cooler Master fanboy haha, I just like the CM Storm theme.
