I hate my computer

So I haven't been on for a few days. Thank my fucked up computer for that (I'm sure a few of you will take that literally). I can't complain too much, since my parents bought it and not me, however, as they were going through the purchasing process, I was asked to advise them. They called this little asshole computer salesman who custom makes PC's. After he told the specs of the computer and said at 500$ it was a steal, I had an idea then that we were getting fucked. When I took the computer through a trial run and got a second opinion from a friend, I was sure we were getting fucked. Did my parents listen... No! And this isn't me being pissy because they merely didn't listen, it's because they requested my help in the final descision, then ignored me, and what do you know, got fucked like sheep in Montana. The point is I'm back now and my parents are jackasses.

Because they probably haven't even been on it.

Wow, did he sell you a PC Chips "Fake Cache" 486 motherboard :rofl:?

Poor guy, I feel your pain. I've been gypped with crappy ASRock Asus Value boards, bootleg XP's, and so forth. I eventually trashed the ripoff parts, slapped in a Chaintech motherboard and a good cooling system, and rocked my cock off.

Asus later dropped their ASRock line for obvious reasons and replaced it with the "X" series boards which are actually quite good. And AMD's Barton core chips fixed the bootlegging issue a while back.

It's great to have a working system. But the Long Island Power Authority's blown transformer also blew my pricey MGE 500w PSU and my Chaintech's ITE monitoring chip, as well as my UPS. Ouch. That's $150 worth of equipment to replace. Thursday kicked so much ass :rolleyes:.

And that's not the first time it's blown itself to bits, either. Fuck LIPA. I'm gonna run my house off of Vespene Gas and Chaos Emeralds starting next year.

I say you punch the manufacturers in the face and tell them to get you a better computer. If that doesn't work, tell your parents you'll kill yourself if you don't get a better one.

Speaking of, the power went out in my area for about half an hour yesterday.
Yeah, they are pretty unreliable as a source of energy.

My computer kept getting more and more unstable for weeks, put two and two together, replaced the PSU and it worked.

If your parents are too stupid to not take the advice of somebody who is most likely more computer savvy than them..you have the right, nay! You have the DUTY to give them hell over it.

State Power Company Slogans-

California: Rolling blackouts are what we do.

Texas: Fuck you and fuck the environment! We're still rich.

New York: Just ignore the green water, its a good thing..really.
