This is an example of IRC convos that make me want to go Al Quaeda on the Internet:

*** ZERO_L58 ([email protected]) has joined #psow
<ZERO_L58> my pc has like a strange stupid virus
<ZERO_L58> but i dont know what it does
<Shurikane> Well, get rid of the damn virus!
<ZERO_L58> is like you know so much about those things
<ZERO_L58> its called:
<Shurikane> Dude, got an anti-virus?
<ZERO_L58> it says bloodhound.packed
<ZERO_L58> yes
<Shurikane> Then use it.
<ZERO_L58> how
<Shurikane> What the FUCK at a Backstreet Boys concert JESUS OF SHIT!
<ZERO_L58> ??
<Shurikane> YOU DON'T FUCKING KNOW HOW TO USE AN ANTI-VIRUS?!

Manuals are here for a reason. Use 'em. They free the tech support lines to let those who have a real question get the help they deserve.

HAHAH.. the problem is IRC is raising a generation of attention-span n00bs who can only tolerate NOT responding to whatever they're reading for ten words at a time.

What ZERO_L58 was really thinking when he entered the chatroom: "Why should I read this manual when this guy already knows everything about this and gets paid to help me? I don't want to spend 30 minutes reading a book when I can be looking up porn! That's how I got this virus anyway..."
Porn viruses are like AIDS from the internet. The more you surf and the less you know what you're doing, the more likely you are to catch one. Unless you use protection... or in this case, know how to use protection.

That's for Internet Explorer users only.

The people who ask dumb fucking questions like that are the kind of fucking n00bs who can't use a computer for SHIT. The same idiots who get confused by the smallest error message. I talk to computer phobic kids at school ALL THE FUCKING TIME. They say "My computer is slow." "Did you defragment?" "What the hell is that?!" Then I gotta go all in-depth. "I have lots of viruses from all the porn I do." "Do you use Internet Explorer?" "Yes." "Download Opera or Mozilla." "My computer is unreliable." "Do you run Windows XPenis?" "Yes."

How can people not know how to use computers?! I built my own rig I RUN WINDOWS SERVER 2003 SET UP AS A WORKSTATION. IF YOU ARE FED UP WITH MICRO$HIT AND WANT A BETTER OS, GET THIS. XP sucks ass. I have been using Windows Server 2003 for almost a year now. It's so stable, I don't even run Linux anymore. This is coming from a guy who has an XP disk sitting around he never uses, on account a XP is a POS.

My rig specs:

AMD Duron 1.8GHz CPU (Which is an Athlon XP 2200+ with less L2 Cache)
512MB of Crucial RAM
40GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM HD with 2MB of cache
Visiontek Radeon 9600XT
ASRock K7S8XE+ Motherboard (Manufactured, Designed, and Marketed by Asus)
Turbo Case 400W Power Supply
Turbo Case X-Dreamer II PC Case
2 Arctic Cool blue LED Fans
Thermal Take Blue cold cathode light w/ voice activation
Mitsumi 1.44MB Floppy Drive
Windows Server 2003
TR2TT (Designed by ThermalTake) 3-color Lighted CPU Fan
Cyber Power 650VA UPS
Juster Headset (Kick ass headset)
Pioneer Stereo Reciever w/ 2 Paradigm Atom speakers (FUCK PC SPEAKERS! THEY SOUND LIKE SHIT! RUN YOUR PC THROUGH A STEREO!)

I think that's it...that gives you an idea of just how good I am with computers ;)

Running XP SP1.

AND NOT A GOD DAMNED WORD OF THAT makes you sound like you know how to use a computer. I can read the words on boxes also.

moreover, XP is a perfectly fine desktop OS -- stable, reliable, compatible, supported.

"i just stopped running linux" is about the dumbest thing i have ever heard. if you actually DID know something about computers, you'd know the relative strengths and weaknesses of all the *ix systems as compared to the DOS/Windows/NT families by Microsoft.

but you don't.

and you seem like you're 12. so the COPPA says you shouldn't be online.

oh, and if you want to learn how to use computers some day, my fee is high but if you can afford it, there's still time to learn.

Morelos...ROFL

God, I almost died when I read that.

Morelos, nice flaming job! It's just too fucking bad I am PISS POOR AND CANNOT AFFORD A SUPER HIGH QUALITY FUCKING MACHINE!

Also...I am 15 not 12. Any why the fuck did you get a 6800 Ultra?! That fucking card can't and ANYTHING with 16x Antiisotropy turned on. Didn't you read the benchmarks?! The X800 XT PE totally cremes it. It the highest end Nvidia card, sure. But the ATI ass-rapes it on most benchmarks.

Also, anyone who says that XP is stable has automatically forfeited their rights as a computer geek...XP is THE WORST NT based OS next to NT 4/3.51/3.1.

You want me to go over the benefits of each OS?

Yeah, I'll fucking do that.

DOS based Windows 1.x/2.x: Some versions are 16-bit (Such as Windows-286 and 386), but most are 8-bit 8086 compatible. Unstable, does not run new software.

DOS Based Windows 3.x: 16 bit, can be 32-bit with the Win32s extensions, but can still not run 9x+ software

DOS based Windows 9x/ME: Runs newer software, but not true 32-bit. Is actually a 16-bit OS running on DOS 7 with 32-bit extensions

NT 3.1/3.51/4.0: Does not support HAL, no low-lever hardware access. That means No DirectX or OpenGL acceleration. 3.51 can run some 4.0 programs (such as Mozilla) but with graphical glitches

Windows 2000: Still not true 32-bit (uses extensions), but has XP-level "stability" and "reliability." Cannot run graphical DOS programs, such as Descent or Doom, and lacks some hardware support found in XP.

Windows XP: The most "reliable" consumer version of Windows (Pro, at least). Is regarded as garbageware by computer users with more refined taste, who usually run Server 2003 or various flavors of Linux.

Server 2003: Amazing. As stable as Linux, with a little less security. Amazingly fast, prepare to watch your games jump by 5-10 FPS as you use this speed demon.

Linux: A flavor of Unix. Can be an incredibly good operating system if you run a good distribution (READ: FEDORA, SuSE). Can run Windows programs through WINE (provided you have a copy of Windows installed) Lacks DirectX "acceleration," making running most games on linux a bitch.

You should try fucking listening before running your mouth.

I'm going to bed...I AM FUCKING TIRED. We can continue this in the morning, if you wish.

stager - i got a reference 6800 clone because it was cheap (nvidia is about 20 miles from me and i got the card right from the hq from a friend who works there)

stager - you won't be piss-poor forever. the only reason i got the new hardware was because i accidentally blew up the athlon 1900+ rig that it replaced. honestly, you should be more impressed with my audio equipment than with the computer.

linux is not "a flavor of unix."

i apologize for shredding you at age 15; i was just pointing out that knowing what parts you used when you built your computer is fairly commonplace these days.

and having had zero crashes with winxp, i cannot say i have the same stability experience you must have had with it. my debian box crashes occasionaly (that's what you get when you frankenstein a machine together with hand-me-down hardware), but neither of my netbsd boxes nor my fbsd box ever crash. i have modified APC UPSes powering them. yes, i only modified them to practice my EE skillz0rs; it doesn't make me elite but it does make me stay in practice for dumb shit involving small electronics.

i don't know anyone other than a mac user or a recent linux convert (linux converts don't understand why linux is still not as nice as windows for a desktop, and why it's also not as nice as bsd for a pc-hardware-based server) spouting anti-microsoft crap.

while i'll agree that i hate microsoft, you'll have to concede that in the desktop marketplace, more hardware is supported in windows than in any other OS on the x86 platform. thus, i use windows for the hardware and for its total integration.

You should try fucking listening before running your mouth.
haven't run my mouth yet. you're the one making blanket statements like "XP SUCKS" and "ALL TEH COOL PPL RUN SERVER 2K3" and "[email protected] DR00LZ" and shit.

just to clarify something else: OF COURSE IT RUNS NETBSD.

"another thing?"

you haven't pointed out the first thing. it seems pointless to 'warn' someone when you're being absolutely unclear as to what the 'warning' is about to begin with. i mean, -you- know what you're talking about, but -i- most certainly don't until you identify it for me.

yeah; i will agree i was harsh, but you have to begin by forgiving me: i haven't really figured out yet where on these forums it's only ok to disagree vs where it's ok to all-out attack people. you have to remember that while i'm loud, i'm also very new here so i have to get acquainted with things.

also, i was in a crabby mood when i posted that, too. it's killing me applying for jobs everywhere, running an educational facility, AND going to grad school. :(

i know how you feel: i'm stressed out as well, and with moving in with my girlfriend next month and all, it's just looking to get deeper and thicker and less restful yet.
