being good with computers is just about being flustered while saying 'fuck' a lot in a way that signals no one should approach you, then googling it

@sophia and not telling anyone that actually turning it off and on again fixes 99% of problems

@007 can't help but think if users actually listened to the meme and could figure out how to put paper in a goddamn printer half of tech support folks would be out of a job

@syrinx @418 one day Greg in accounting is going to start remembering his passwords and it will signal the collapse of the industry.

@sophia Aah, but by that time, someone will have put together a script that toggles the caps lock key randomly, while on the login screen

@sophia @syrinx as long as he doesn't also figure out what "load A4" means

@sophia

@sophia I don't understand why people have so much trouble with computers because this is literally the method every expert uses

@ben @sophia It's because the method is a secret.

Not because of any conspiracy or dark incentives. Nobody tries to keep it secret.

It's just that nobody believes it when they are told.
