    [h2]DON'T FUCKING POST YOUR SPEEDTEST SHIT HERE[/h2]
    I made the new thread because it's been half an hour and iirc nobody asked to be op next


    RULES by daijitsu
    --

    [release]I'm going to say this, and no one's going to listen. This thread is about people who think or act like they're tech savvy, and fail miserably. This could be smug kids saying their macbook could run Crysis on decent settings to garner attention, teachers at school spouting out things that make no sense and trying to get away with the "I'm the teacher, I'm right" excuse, or the usual haberdashery and whatnot.


    Posts everyone is sick of:

    Laughing at normal people instead of actual tech-illiterate asshats:
    "My friend said he has 1 terabyte of ram lolol"
    "Someone said their 8800 video card is better than my 220GT turbo-derp, what a retard"

    tupid, repetitive, or extremely damaging pranks:
    "I unplugged my friend's mouse at school and they had to call over a teacher, I'm so cool"
    "I told my friend to delete system32 and he did lmfao"

    Okay my turn. The idiot for our school's IT "department" (as they like to call it) gave me an admin account on the school network,(because he is retarded and thinks I wont notice) so I decide to fuck up everyone's files. Since everyone's files show up on the network drive, I delete everything from the word documents and copy and paste "I am a cock sucking fag!" and made every shortcut to a webpage "Rick Rolls" (since we are working on HTML there were about 5 on each account) and I delete all the files on the teachers account and replaced it with porn. So after i do all that shit we couldn't use any computers because "A virus got into the system and now we have to format them" (they format the computers every few weeks)

    And now every student who's files you just destroyed has to re-do their homework IF they have the time, possibly losing valuable information and weeks worth of hard time and effort. Teachers often ignore computer failure and file deletion as 'avoidable' and say you should have backed up your files and it's your own fault for losing it.

    Now we have several students with otherwise good grades getting a massive dent in their records, losing several points on their GPA, potentially losing just enough (depending on the scale of the project you just fucked up 'for the lulz') to be denied future admissions to colleges, universities, jobs, and other high-profile opportunities that required him to get an A in a specialty class, but their final project worth that wonderful 10 to 20% of their final grade just got replaced with the text "I am a cock sucking fag!" and they e-mailed it out to their teacher without looking for such a freak change in their past two months' worth of work.

    Their teacher, outraged by the 'obvious' act of defiance, fails them not only for the paper, but potentially marks them down even further, giving detention or suspending, or outright planting a 0 on their final grade.


    but hey, at least you got a few rickrolls in, right?

    Remember, tech illiterates ACT like they know things, but don't.

    It's fun when they actually follow their own advice on tech when they have NO clue what they're doing, like the one guy who said "My keyboard broke, so we bought a new computer because it was easier", or just general idiocy, like the one 8.5 minute rant that, in short, was "PC cost too much for gaming, spend the money on consoles and TVs because I don't want to be locked away in a room, so buy a mac. OSX MOTHAFUCKAAA"

    He actually peaced-out with "OSX." *gangsta-face*

    And here we go! :buddy:

    In case you missed my story from the last pages of the previous thread, here
    LinuX posted:
    [INDENT] Jesus FUCK right when I was in the middle of a science test, the fire alarm went off, and since I was assigned RIGHT next to the alarm even though I'm fucking scared of those things, I jumped like 50 feet in the air.

    Then a announcement came on the PA saying "Oh herp, it was just derp burning a pretzel by accident in cooking class.

    And then it was next period, and we were very quiet because the room is so small, and there's one fire alarm glaring at us. And the volume is set to fucking max. I stared at it for a while, expecting I had ESP or some shit like that, and when I look away, BEEEP BEEEEEP BEEEEEP
    That fucker came on, and everyone literary shit their pants.

    Again, a false alarm, and we had a math test that period, so we got to do it outside.
    So now after finishing the test, and being able to do whatever, guess what I do? Browse FP, duh.
    And then
    right when I rated binary's post,
    IT
    GOES
    OFF

    Fuck.

    And then what came on the PA?
    "One of the PCs overheated and caught on fire because it crashed, please stay calm"
    Wait, we don't have PCs here :colbert:
    So I look up, there's smoke in the air, coming from the library. There's only fucking iMacs there.

    Turns out, it WAS a Mac that overheated because some cunt decided to put blue tape on the fans of the iMacs, way to go!

    I was talking to the programming instructor that is going to teach my Turbo Pascal course next year and he's an awesome dude. He used to work at IBM and then decided to go into teaching. He knows about Steam, the Half-Life series and all that jazz. He even knew what I was talking about when I was talking about education contracts with UDK. He's 63.

    Installing WinXP on my Mum's PC earlier tonight, she comes in and claims she can smell a "burning" smell. I claim that the CD drive "uses flames" and she nods in agreement then asks "but its safe, right?", I agree just to play along. She's so dense its cute.

    Well personally I see no reason to get a quad with HT or a sixcore processor, when a quad's more than enough.

    "...for gaming."
    afaik not a single game supports either 6 cores or hyperthreading, and i've heard of 2600's performing slightly WORSE than 2500's in games.

    Uh, what? Hyperthreading isn't software-visible, at least at the application layer. Games can't tell whether they're running on two hyperthreaded cores or on four physical cores. And, as a matter of fact, more and more games are being heavily multithreaded, to take advantage of multiple cores. 6 cores is still probably overkill for current games, but it will be needed in a few years.

    The 2500K occasionally edges out the 2600K in some games by a very small amount. A very small amount is less than a few frames, which is definitely within the margin of error.

    They're essentially equal for gaming.

    I decided to point out to my dad that Portal 2 uses Steam, which he thinks screws up computers, to see what would happen. I tell him it, and he says it is fine, because retail games are not the problem. I ask him what he means by that, and he tells me that "the problem with all those shit downloaded games is that Steam packs them with Trojan horses. Retail games don't have Trojan horses."
    I tried explaining that was completely wrong, but he told me "just shut the hell up or I'll uninstall the goddamn thing."

    not when you take price into account. You're basically paying more for the same level of performance, if you're just gaming.
