    I can actually understand that.
    If you've been fouled once by "a better bargain" well... ;)

    From her side:
    If you find a deal you like and people (sound like they) try to talk you into another...

    I'm guessing you work in a massive IT store which hires anyone who has ever touched a PC?

    You're forgetting that most PCWorld salesmen (and Best Buy in the US) aren't selling computer equipment, they're really selling insurance which happens to come with some computer bits :D

    lol actually I don't. I work in a small family run business. There's me and Ryan498, then there's 5 others who are the family. Me and Ryan498 know what we're on about, not sure about everyone else lol

    I think my latest Facebook rant sums up the incompitance of most people i have to assist in their IT needs on a daily basis.

    "Oh so you have known about open evening for 6 months. Oh so you havent prepared your IT requirements. Oh so your going to wait untill 5 minuties before the parents arive before you let me know what you need. Oh your going to let kids access the computers using your login with full access to confidentail and financial data. Oh whats that your on quadruple my wage and dont know how to use Powerpoint. Well im going down the pub with my friends now...why. **** YOU thats why."

    I was having a bad day as you can tell..

    I can certainly relate to that. I have worked in property mangement for while and I'm the one who is left to sort things out.

    I recently worked in a similar role in a University, working for the students union. I would have random staff members coming into my office to tell me that this or that wasn't working and they had been sent down to me.

    No, not really. It was a CAD program where the software won't allow you to close it down until you close the sketch you're working on within the program. I just thought his phrasing was idiotic. My mother and father are well over twice my age plus change, and they know that closing a program is called... Closing a program :rolleyes:

    I have a friend who believed those websites which say "You have 48 viruses. Download this software to combat them." He downloaded the software, then asked me whether £60 was a good price to pay to get rid of the viruses. Silly boy.

    I hate it when that happends.
    three words, Ctrl-Alt-Del
    Kill it in the task manager...with fire:D

    Bwah...statgraphics is a candidate for this.

    Then again, I've managed to "X-out" of AutoCAD after not-saving for a few hours... :D

    It was SolidEdge ST4, the joke of the Computer Aided Design industry (in my opinion). The sketch has to be closed in order to start a new sketch or even save the current part, which makes sense if you know about it but if you're new to it, can be really frustrating :rolleyes:

    I know SolidEdge pretty well, we had to learn it for my first degree course but what my lecturer didn't know at the time was that I was halfway through fully learning AutoCAD and starting to learn SolidWorks. I only learned enough of ST4 to get me through my degree modules because I hate the Siemens software compared to SolidWorks. SW is a much more complete package, and at least 100 times more useful to know for going into an Engineering industry job.

    Happened to me about a week ago...

    I was helping one of my friends sign up for <censored>.
    Unfortuantely, he uses the same password for everything.
    The password required a capital letter and a number (for security reasons)
    He said:
    "What?!? I'm not going to remember a CAPITAL NUMBER!" (emphasis added)
