Me. I use computers all the time, but don't have a clue how to program stuff.
The only thing that I did that was remotely connected to programming was playing around in VB (but that's fucking easy, it's like drag and drop; poof, done!)
>all the retards in this thread who believe in prescriptive grammar
Protip: the language you speak today exists thanks to changes that you'd find abominable if they happened in your lifetime instead of 500 years ago, and the English people will speak 500 from now will be nothing like what you know.
Languages evolve and people not knowing certain grammar rules is a cause of change (something that would be "wrong" in its time might become so widespread that it eventually becomes standard and accepted as correct), so deal with it.
Source: I have a totally worthless degree
It happened before, it's happening now and it will never stop happening. You have no control over language change.
Unless some grammar nazi decides to go full Hitler and genocide everyone who doesn't speak perfect (according to today's grammar) English, change is unstoppable.
In spoken english the difference is the pronunciation. That creates the contrast between them. However, since linguistic inference doesn't translate into text there are variations in spelling to compensate.
I will never understand this
How much of a retarded gaymur kiddie do you have to be to purchase a motherboard simply because it has a plastic gun shape
I just don't get it
I'd probably make a terrible marketer
You would be because you're selling with your own wallet instead of your potential customer's.
The market says gamers are getting younger and PC gaming is trending up.
Make edgy motherboards.
So you're not troubled at all that the retard must have ripped out the gfx cards for some ungodly reason, destroying the PCIe slots? That's a much bigger crime than the ricer motherboard.
The actual story is:
Revenge is a dish best served WET! Scorned woman dumps lying lover's entire Apple collection in the bath (and sent him the pictures to prove it)
Japanese man pays for his cheating ways with his prized gadget collection
Scorned girlfriend takes snaps of Apple bath and sends them to him
Photos of soaked iMac, iPhones, iPads and accessories go viral on Twitter
the sad thing is that I can actually see some people falling for this, some people that don't have any clue what graphics cards actually look like and then they complain about it online in forums how pc gaming sucks and that even with a gtx 580 every game runs like shit. fuark.
The great leader is working on that
This is nothing. Back in july we had a thread about a guy complaining about GPU sag in his build... fucker put together the whole computer with no screws AT ALL. Had to rma three boards and 2 GPUs because they kept dying. let me go get pics
>work in service desk

I gotta get some certs and get the fuck out of help desk ASAP yo
Quick example: Angleland>England
The main reason this happened is because language change tends to favor simplicity and ease of use, and England is easier to say than Angleland.
Also the whole thing about Old English being an inflectional language. If you traveled back in time to say 15th century England, you wouldn't be able to communicate at all.
Not the guy but in Germany for example they loosened a grammar rule some time ago. of course the people who learned to use it were furious saying shit like "no ones gonna understand what the author meant now" but in the end the children and pupil who grew up learning the changed rule loved the change because the original rule really only added unnecessary difficulty to the language but didn't really add anything to the sentences it was used in. The reason I know this is because it got changed during my school-time and all the teachers were treating it like a big deal. I know a lot of examples from my parents and all I can say is good riddance.
Maybe not the best example since German is a rather (unnecessary) difficult language while English is comparably easy and straight forward.
Another example, this time comparing English and Spanish
the Spanish word for "crocodile" is "cocodrilo". Spanish comes from Latin, and the Latin word was "crocodylus". The /r/ sound in the Spanish word underwent metathesis, meaning it moved towards the end of the word. Why? Because due to the proximity of their place of articulation it's easier to pronounce /r/ after a voiced alveolar consonant like /d/ than after a voiceless velar like /k/
How would you feel if people today started saying "cocodrile"?
>You could scream, hit thins and/or cry like a baby to communicate because everyone understands you anyway
The usage of the word the "you" in place of "thou." In the past, thou was the singular form of you and it would be improper to refer to a single object/person as you. This obviously is no longer true and that form is considered archaic and obsolete.
That was actually a case of formality, you being more formal than thou, not a grammatical error.
No matter how you try to spin it your and you're are not interchangeable, to use one in place of the other is simply completely wrong. The people that do so are not trying to evolve the language, they are ruining it because they're retards.
The US has an absurdly high amount of shootings per capita. Even in countries with similar levels of gun ownership there are no where near as many shootings.
Burgers just don't want to admit they are horrible people.
Last crazy dictator with H-Bomb...
Its like looking at picture of some endangered species animal
or even rarer, like watching an USfat with IQ higer than 90,
world will be poorer without them.
But I actually think it would be fun to spend a day with our Glorious Leader,
we would fool imperialistic dogs that we give a shit if our people have enough to eat by
sending them to only supermarket in Pyong-Yang .
Then we would discuise ourself and go to South Korea on Big Mac, then after a nap,
we would use our experimental AK2020 asault rifle with PeoplesBulletsTM on political
prisoners, then we would go to one of our most modern Nuclear Subs TN4000XXGreATlEadeR33 and just low ride thru Pacific like its sunday.
Shit was so cahs!
If he actually had all those programs installed and was willing to turn over the Apple account and other things needed to keep them updated and such then that would be an outrageous value desu
pretty much everyone can comprehend the difference between "your" and "you're" they just accidentally type the wrong one sometimes, just like how sometimes people leave their headlights on when they leave their car, or forget to set their alarm clock before they go to sleep
Mine cost around $6,000 too if you included 4 year all parts warranty.
>comparing laptop prices to desktop prices
The only tech retards are you guys.
inb4 mad people, I needed a laptop for constant travel and I was unwilling to compromise gaming performance.
>mfw finding out ive been running a 125 TDP CPU on a 95 TDP motherboard for years
It's not worth 2400USD, wouldn't come to that if you ordered all the parts from Ebay.
880Ms are only like 500 bucks now.
SLI for a laptop is always retarded, might as well use an external GPU if you're so concerned.
friend of mine spent a lot of shekels on a computer
>24GB of ram
but he cheaped out on the storage
i suggested to him that he should disable the page file and get an SSD but apparently hes broke now and too incompetent to disable the page file.
>(and sent him the pictures to prove it)
>Scorned girlfriend takes snaps of Apple bath and sends them to him
>Photos of soaked iMac, iPhones, iPads and accessories go viral on Twitter
So she's dumb, will be condemned to pay for all damages at least and gave a boost to his reputation by enhancing his exposure. Got it.
Language evolved in an age when every speaker of every language had a different exposure and education to and on their respective language. They had excuses not to know the difference. You do not. That is the difference.
