Take any and all opportunities to make it clear that you know the most about PCs.

Don't be a jerk about doing it.

If you know quite a bit about troubleshooting and this teacher somewhat regularly has problems, try to get on those quickly and solve them efficiently.

 

The above tactics worked for me, not to mention constantly bringing it up when some teachers made us do ice breakers. Basically my whole school knew I was the best there.

1.) Ive been building PCs since I was a teenage stoner.  I can match slots up.  Theres only so many.

2.) Im here - and I absolutely do not consider myself Technologically Knowledgeable and I know a hell of a lot more than those around me.  There are some very Technologically Knowledgeable people on these forums however.  

3.) Im here because I can help solve hardware and compatibility problems (slots are easy) - and its a great community - but I am not TK (tired of typing it lol)

Exactly, asking how to "look like" you're knowledgeable automatically means that you are NOT knowledgeable. 

 

That said, maybe the teacher is hot? I remember my kindergarten teacher.... she was... smokin... Then my 4th grade teacher... Miss Pauk.... mmmmmmmm....

Building a PC takes nothing...first thing I can think of is a Raspberry Pi board and code it to do some sort of automation.  Dunno what but that's up to you.  I cant even come close to doing that without a lot of research.

Why do you want to convince your teacher that you are the best with technology knowledge?

Programming Knowledge ?

Jet Propulsion Knowledge ?

Nano Tech Knowledge ?

Computer Knowledge ?

Server Knowledge ?

Streaming Knowledge ?

Hardware Knowledge ?

Assembling a PC is easy.

She wont let no one touch her personal pc, but maybe a scrap pc.

I would say there are better things to do with your time. Just get good grades is all that matters. Dont skip school and do not drink alcohol and stay away from drugs!

 

How many friends are you competing with?

I guess this is just a pissing contest, like the "Jocks" outdoing each other on the football field.

Don't bury the important questions, you should lead with them.

 

In all seriousness tho, proving you're "the best" at anything isn't productive. If you ARE the best, you have nothing to prove, it will be recognized. You have to work hard to be the good at something, you have to work even harder to be great at something, and you have to devote your life to be the best; when you achieve that last one, you don't have to show people, they'll take notice. 

 

Be the best at learning, that's is the most valuable quality you can obtain.

Indeed they have, but it doesn't mean that anyone would have to choose to participate, and generally people don't tend to appreciate piss being all over the place.

I don't mean to sound like an asshole but I find you to be quite full of yourself and I question your actual knowledge in computing. You are young so this is OK you still have plenty time to learn in life but saying you are the best at something or the best in your entire school is not an attractive trait, I mean do you even know everyone in your school how are you judging their knowledge what about your IT guy surely he knows a thing or two about computing. There's nothing wrong with thinking that you are good at something but to assume that you are better than others because and I'm making an assumption here, you mess around with computers for fun is bad logic. We live in a technological age everyone is growing up exposed to computers now so there are a lot of smart people out there, I've been studying programming and computing for many years now not to mention spending a life time messing with technology but the more I learn the more I realise how much there is to learn, you're never done learning technology because it is evolving rapidly.

Wordy, I get it.

sequitur : the conclusion of an inference : consequence

 

What it was, was the human condition. Hence competition and pee, Paris hostel sinks and urinals that were in the shape of lips, lots of gypsies too.

 

Factor in grade school studentry, Jr or Sr High perhaps. Testosterone hey I spelt it right hehehehe hiccup. The other is a Scrabble word. Focus now. Students have to prove themselves, so my best guess is to impress the herd, gotta impress the alpha. I do believe its self explanitory. Herd being the classmates, Alpha being the teacher. Explanation finished.

 

I believe to impress any human, there needs to be skill involved, maybe some splash and dazzlery. Just do what Linus and his team do..........make silly faces!

Make a clock out of a breadboard, discrete 7400 series ICs, and some 7 Segment displays. Make sure it displays time in a 24 hour format such that it counts down the time to 0000, with hours, minutes, and seconds. Take extra special care to make sure it beeps at a somewhat loud volume every second, and make a big deal showing it off. Last, but not least, make sure it uses a large LiPo battery pack for power, and that it is mounted in an obviously viewable location on the clock.

It doesn't matter. If you're trying to be the "most popular" or something like that in your class then you need to find something else to do. Who cares if others know you're good with computers? Sometimes it's fun when people don't know. I obviously know a decent amount and I love when people think I'm a magician or something because I can alt+tab programs.

 

Don't bother trying to convince her. Just fix her problems as they come up and eventually she'll come to trust you.

All my teachers were old.... Except one newbie teacher I had in high school. It was like literally his first year teaching, he was 25 and extreamly popular among the female students. I guess his good looks and friendly demeanor has something to do with it.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.
