I'll be more respectful of vending machines from now on.

Ooh, you can be an "average computer user's computer" and sit around saying "diddle off i'm not doing that" "rebooting" all day...

"My computer is broken! It's being stupid! There's something wrong with it!"

In my short lifetime, I've learned that computers are almost never wrong- it's nearly always user error, which makes working out bugs infuriating. I know I can't use the excuse "stupid compiler's doing it wrong again" when I forgot to declare the variable outside the parens...  smiley-grin

Yea, the one thing that infuriates me more than anything (the "I'll ignore it but you're diddling stupid" kind of infuriate) is when people go "Well, you know how technology is, it just does weird stuff sometimes" or something like that... "NO, YOU SCREWED IT UP, THAT WAS A PREDICABLE RESULT OF WHAT YOU DID"

Especially when it's a so-called tech teacher... *sigh*

Except with MS Office products - always trying predict what you wanted. Just enter what I typed, damnit! And stop trying to autoformat and autostyle and all that crap!

We get complaints of slow computers all the time. People here load them up with dozens of programs they don't need and then open them all at once. I've seen 35 or 40 windows open on some people's PC's. Task manager shows 2.x Gigs of memory used up when they only have 2 installed.

Me: When's the last time you rebooted?

Them: I don't know... last week maybe?

Me: Try restarting.

They are amazed and how much faster it runs right after. Then the same person call 2 or 3 weeks later complaining that their computer is running slow.

I run an excessive amount of programs always, I'm just excessive like that, and I don't restart hardly ever unless it's really sluggish and killing stuff doesn't help... currently only have Firefox open with 33 tabs, VMWare with Win7, mIRC through Win7

Nothing else other than IM client and things in the system tray

My wife will have 20 tabs open in firefox, with 10 of them having some partially-running flash game (ie in "attract mode", between games.)  And then she complains that her computer is too slow...
