Everything Else / Lessons in Jack Saftey.
« on: June 16, 2009, 11:41:58 pm »
So tonight, I was helping a friends mom check for brake damage on her Buick Skylark,  everything was going rather straight forward until my friends mom decides to sit in the car to put the car in neutral to rotate the front axle.  The car slips of the jack and BAM! The front axle (luckily) lands on the dirt.

Then the fiance' gets his measly little jack from his brand new Ford, and luckily we were able to get the wheel back on without sustaining damage to the axle.

The lesson is, dont sit in a car when its jacked up on questionable terrain, especially with a cheesy manual jack, and use a hydraulic jack when ever available

wait...when did you decide to troll for a living?

we didn't badmouth OSX or anything....we just said we weren't pleased with Vista as compared to Windows 7.

im continuing to poke fun at SSJ because I know that his claim is false.  Even if he is one of the 10% of computer users who dont experience  much issues with windows, its not true when someone says that they've never experienced a BSOD or error message.

MVP is the most important war being fought today...I think xD

pics of what?

your father?
your brother?
your stupid school who can't do anything right with a computer?

Prove that you never have had a single error or bsod in that use period of that machine, but there's really no way so I already know that you're lying.

Dude all public schools are stupid, regardless.

Cant do anything right with a computer?

Well I agree with you right there, they are using that wal-mart 3rd world operating system with that poor, primitive, and proprietary kernel developed by the biggest of software nazis the world has ever experienced, blowing away more money than they are saving money with having to have virus scanner subscriptions,  hurting the pathetic fragile american economy, preventing an end to old technoliges like usb and VGA, relying on IT teams just to maintain each system, using an OS that was stolen, and yeah you are right that isnt right at all, schools should invest in real computers like macs, or switch to a much better OS other

If anyone whos stupid it would be people who still think windows is useful, its crap, it sucks, and it has been defied by humanity as being crap.

It was also steve jobs stupidity for being so  naive and giving code to bill gates, which he quickly stole and developed that pile of os crap!

Proof? I have had no errors pop up or no blue screen or no random errors come up since I've had it and it's been at least 6 months.

The ITs at our school have to tweak these computers beyond belief just to make them function.

Dad(former IT) had to tweak his and my brothers computer beyound belief just to make them function.

Me, Ive gone mac and haven't really gone back...

I mean proof as in a screen cap. or pics.

I can claim, easily claim that Ive never gotten a single kernel panic on this mac.

no problems here with vista

Proof? If you don't, then you're a rare breed xP!

Posting in a troll thread.
Vista doesn't suck for some people.

But for the rest of us having problems, modifying it is really the only way to get a nice copy of it.

But honestly, you're better off with Windows 7 at this point. Less effort needed.

True, but you're still burdened with that primitive kernel and those security nightmares. Some have managed not to be attacked by malicious programs...But Windows still sucks...simply because there are more powerful OS alternitives.

I find it funny that all you "techies" have problems with Vista, yet someone like me who doesn't know much can use it without a problem.

Wouldnt techies try and stay away from vista? I dunno...

Once again you're still burdened with the issues still present within Windows...
If I needed to use Windows for anything, I would try to use the earliest possible OS version. If I could run program X on Windows 95, I would. My dad's laptop has Vista and it gets annoying.

What's so amazing is how little the win32 platform has changed. I can run apps from 2009 on Windows 95. 
I honestly would downgrade to XP, but I've already looked into, and XP doesn't have the drivers I need.

Everything has XP drivers. And if the company refuses to make them, someone out there made them for you :)

I couldnt find the  graphics drivers for my friends laptop. But she doesnt need them.

Lets face it, Vista sucks...

And the people who use it...get a mac.

I just installed Xp pro on my friends HP pavilion dv6000.

Everything works except graphics, but for my friend its nothing big, the generic driver works rather well.

Computers & Video Games / Re: Operating System Not Found
« on: February 09, 2009, 07:32:02 pm » I keep getting (intermittent..but I still get it from time to time) Operating System Not Found errors when I boot up my pc (Vista) so I pretty much have to replace my hard drive.

Just kinda curious if any of you know much about SSD and whether it'd be a good idea to just get one of those for my OS and a few others things and keeping all my other stuff on a external 1TB (i like to be able to move my music and movies around with me :P)

Or should I just go ahead and buy a hard drive with more space that's cheaper?

Insert windows vista cd, go to recovery console, and run chkdsk
