    Before you ask questions here LOOK AT THIS THREAD HERE!
    Keep your Speedtest shit [HERE!]



    RULES by daijitsu
    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"

    stupid, 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"
    Daijitsu posted:

    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?
    Blind hatred or fanboyism:
    People who say Macs suck are stupid and wrong
    People who say PCs suck are stupid and wrong
    "Macfags suck because apple sucks and they think they're better rage rage rage."
    "PC sucks cuz Mac is better."

    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*

    I dunno about you but you should say that the search is disabled for blue members in the OP, so add like a mini tip workaround: "Blue members won't have access to search so use "searchname site: facepunch.com" in Google."

    Wasn't everyone getting pissed off at him and calling him an egotistical elitist or something like that in the mouse and mech keyboard threads? I vaguely remember him rustling some jimmies.

    "Rustling jimmies" is the one meme I can stand in regular conversation, and this is coming from a guy who struggles to call stuff "memes" or "trolling"
    "[...]Meme is a fucking stupid word to fancy up the concept of a running joke, one of the more irritating concepts that mouth-breathing crap-flinger Richard Dawkins has inflicted upon an undeserving world. I hate the very word. 'Mmmmeeeeeeem.' I pronounce it 'maim' every time I can because I hate it so much."

    It's a meme now? What? I mean I've heard it more recently but I didn't figure an expression I've heard people use for forever was a meme.

    Kinda a tech illiterate story:

    One day I was using OmegleSpy which allows you to eavesdrop on conversations and mess with their conversations. Anyway, I remembered that there was a fake Facebook link that used cookies to redirect to the last person to log on on that computer, obviously this could be used. I don't have the chat logs but I remeber the conversation relatively well.

    Me: Hey check out this facebook account I just hacked <insert fake link here>
    Stranger: WTF DONT HACK MY ACCOUNT YOU FUCKING RED NECK MOTHER FUCKER IM CALLING THE FBI
    Hilarious.

    so it's the Steam Summer Sale now, and as you'd expect from me, I'm begging.

    But this time it's different.

    You see, my birthday is in August. The fifteenth of August, specifically. Which is outside the timeframe for the Steam sale. Therefore, I'd like to ask that if you're going to give me something for my birthday (which I really hope you do), you'd do it now and take advantage of the fact that games are cheap as shit.

    I do have a wishlist, but only so I qualify for those things Steam does that require 10 items on your wishlist. Still, it's not just random shit, so it's a good place to start.

    Thank you, and

    You're right, that place is pretty much dead is a chat thread now.

    If I had any money at the moment I'd sprinkle it like fairy dust in the form of $5 or $10 games but I don't at the moment. Plus I need to save for my trip back to my "lovely" home town in California.

    man FUCK.

    BMW Dealer wanted $330 to re-install the bumper for 2-3 hours of labor. Talked them down to $300, but still. Man, I'm raged. I would do it myself, but it's the m-sport bumper and I figure it might be missing some screws here and there, and it's important to make sure all the brake cooling ducts are where it is.

    On the bright side, finished my friends system. The cable management is fucking awesome.
