I knew someone like that once, if they liked a site then they'd try to dump the whole thing locally, to the desktop. The result was that the desktop was a wall of html pages... It was a sad story indeed.

o what a mess LOL

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

I worked as an install tech for Comcast for a while. My job was to run the coaxial line from the tap (pole or pedestal) to your house, make sure it's grounded properly, and get your modem working. Of course, I had plenty of people asking for or even demanding troubleshooting that wasn't my job. This got even worse when I got a little too good at my job and they put me in the pool of techs that do all service calls, not just installs. Some of my favorites:

 

-I loved the ones where they complain about their slow internet speed. I would get there, connect my phone to the 5Ghz wi-fi network, run a speedtest from the Comcast server while I'm standing next to the modem, and show them that they were getting the download they're paying for. Then they would ask, "why don't I get that on my computer?". I would walk to wherever their computer was, connect my phone to whichever wi-fi network their computer was on and run the test again. "Is that what you get on your computer?" "Yeah" "That's how wi-fi works."


- HDMI issues. I never realized the sheer magnitude of how many ways a loose cable or fucked up pin can manifest itself. No signal error, pink screen, static, audio digitization, all sorts of bullshit. I had so many calls where the customer wouldn't let me do anything until they explained why they were convinced it was the Comcast box, and then I would just replace the HDMI cable.

 

- Even better were the calls where all I had to do to "fix" their TV was change inputs on the remote. I got more of those than you might think.

 

- I had one old guy who said his internet wasn't working at all. I pulled up google.com in his browser. "Seems to be working. What made you think it wasn't?". He gets all confused because he doesn't have a clue what I just did. Then he logs in to Microsoft Outlook 2003 and explains that his email isn't working. So I send a test email to myself, and it gets a server error. I tell him "Sorry, it looks like either your server settings in Outlook got messed up your actual email server is having issues. I don't know how to fix that, I don't have time to figure it out, and it's not my job anyway. This looks like a work email, so I would ask around at your company if anybody knows who hosts your server and go from there." I spent 30 minutes trying to explain that his Comcast service was working fine and I can't troubleshoot his 20 year old email server that he can't give me any info on. He didn't even know what a browser was, the only thing he had ever used the internet for was Outlook 2003. Looking back, I probably should have just created a gmail account for him, transferred his contacts, and sent out a group email saying that it was his new email address. Would've taken the same time, and I'm pretty sure that his company he'd retired from didn't exist anymore and had just stopped hosting his email.

so this one time I was hanging out with my friend who is the manager at a tech shop by where I live and a girl comes in and buys a 2tb hard drive. we let her know that we install hard drives for $1 (the cost of the sata cable we use) and she says "just because I am a woman does not mean I cant work on computers" and leaves in a huff. two days later she comes back in saying that the HDD is not working so we take the computer in to look at it, we open it and the HDD is nowhere to be seen, so we ask her where it is. and it turns out that she scanned it and put the scanned image on her desktop to install the drive. and to top that off she threw away the drive she paid almost $200 for and she wanted us to give her a new one.

So late night I had the most painful conversation with my old boss..he's a IT manager and I was slamming my head on the table. Basically its mostly thanks to Intels retarded naming with the i7 extremes, the newer i5/i7x and now the i9, combo that with Ryzen, Threadripper, EPYC it was painful trying to explain that 1151 hasn't been replaced by 2066 and there is a consumer and "enthusiast"/Xeon socket at the same time. 

Basically he was saying that Ryzen is bad value cause he'll have to buy a new chip in 2020 when he would rather buy a top of the range threadripper now and be good for years as its the "Latest" socket and he thought it replaced AM4.. 

 

do you know how hard it is trying to explain this to someone who is an IT manager and therefore knows everything

The thing is, a dual 360mm setup would be an exceptional loop for most CPUs and a single GPU, with both being overclocked.
