Also us though
@Swolekage, yeah, that's exactly my thought. That's more me than my parents, though. But mostly because I built my own computer and expect it to perform flawlessly. The only thing that I can't control is my fvcking ISP. If I knew more about networking I'd just hack in. I mean, it's not like the ISP's weren't reimbursed for the hardware installation throughout the country. And yet they charge disgusting amounts and impose these non-sensical data caps...
I'm rambling. Sorry.
@Empshok, I built my own computer always similar to the classic I'm a vegan line.
@TheMightyImp, vegan line...what does that mean, and how does it relate to computers?
@Swolekage, hey I punch my tech for not working don’t lump me in with those savages
@Empshok, I'm not what you would call "computer savvy", but I still want to hear the answer to this
@Swolekage, I grew up when dial up 28.8k was the shjt, and I still get pissed when it takes my half inch thick phone that does a thousand times more than the old GIANT desktop computer to take more than literally an instant to load a page
@Empshok, just watch some movies from the late 80's or early 90's. You'll be a pro hacker in no time.
All you have to do is ramble stuff about bypassing the algorithms while key smashing and boom, you're in.
We have technology
@jdopps13, apparently not
I was more in tune with computers when Windows 95 was all I dealt with. Now if I have a problem with something, especially at work, I get IT on the phone right away.
I know a lot of people like me who are better at manual labor give you guys a lot of shjt, but to be honest I appreciate the knowledge you all have, because maybe you don't know how to change you oil, but I sure af don't know how to fix a problem with a computer anymore
Internet access has become such an ubiquitous thing, people expect instant downloads, instant access, and instant everything. As someone heavily involved with network engineering and testing, the so called ‘network’ is incredibly complex. For example, your phone. On the LTE network, hundreds of thousands of people are in the background monitoring and maintaining an infrastructure of hundreds and thousands of devices that connect you to the StuckPixel server. One minor slowdown or a 5 second network outage people are in a uproar. Banging on the doors of their ISP with clubs and chains, while people like us are in the background trying our best to keep this stuff on for you folks while you beat us to a pulp.
Please keep it up! Beat us up, expect more bandwidth! Hackers keep hacking! Burn the cell towers down! Bitch about 5G! This helps us stay employed
