I feel ya.....I give my dad heaps of stuff and i never get a "thanx". Im forever fixing his computer too, and he just goes right ahead and installs about 50 games (no joke) and fcuks it up again. I gave him a wireless Logi mouse and lately it stops responding in windows, naturally he just blames the mouse. It wouldnt possibly be the fact that all his HDD's are filled with crap and is slowing everything down!

Man, dads suck <_<

 

Also, i gave my sis my old machine. It was a 1ghz athlon, 768mb ram & Geforce MX 400. And she . cause she cant play the latest games. what the heck does she expect? So she just leaves it in a corner collecting dust now. I think ill reclaim it and use it for linux :ph34r:

Oh boy... Here we go... True story:

 

For my little brothers 13th birthday my dad decides to recruit my help in finding some hardware to build him a computer... $500, my hard drive, and a few hours later, I finish building the machine MYSELF while getting ready to plug it in when my father says NO! DON'T TOUCH IT!... I asked why and he quickly comes up to plug it in and press the power button to turn it on... The next day when my father gave my brother his comp, he said he was happy to have built it for him... what the heck?!

 

I didn't say anything but got upset and asked my father a few minutes later why he took all the credit when I built it... his response "It wasn't working until I plugged it in". Basically he wanted to share in the spotlight of being a Mr. Fix-It dad without doing the work... Sharing is one thing, stealing is another... :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, my family knows I'm the tech and I think they sensed that I built it... No biggie... :P

I was raised in a blue collar area growing up in Charlotte, NC (USA)....and my father ran a small sandblasting & paint company that did really well when I was little.......business fell off really bad in the mid to late 90's...and to this day he will not even sit down in front of a computer because he feels threatened by them.....I have a feeling that he believes they are taking peoples jobs..... At least your father gives them a chance. My father will not even look to see how you turn it on and off. <shrug>

You should be able to install 50 games if you want to :)

No, it's probably not :) Maybe the batteries need replacing/recharging or there's interference from another wireless device? Or a crap mousemat maybe?

Gave my parents my first build (1.33T-bird, 256MB PC2100,60gb they had an IBM 400mhz K6, 128mb PC100 8gb failing hd before it) anything goes wrong its my fault. My dad nearly broke my logitech wireless slamming on the desk because it wasn't working right. With all the effort he spent slamming it against the desk he could have replaced the batteries but that was just to hard.

Sounds like my mom and my sister. My mom, in this case, craping yells at me all the craping time when something goes wrong with the computer(Oh, I'M SORRY IF IE IS THE WORST crapING INTERNET BROWSER OUT THERE!), saying that it's her computer(well, it is, but for all the work I've done making it better...), etc. Yet, I'M the one who installed Ad-Aware 6.0, I'M the one who installed Spybot - S&D, and I'M the one who keeps it running smoothly! I'M the one who configured it to run with ClearType for the text, I'M the one who got rid of all the adware and spyware on this computer. I'M the one who got her Kodak EasyShare software working again for her.

 

 

 

 

And my sister...

 

 

My older brother built her a computer so she would stay off the family one. Sure, she stays off for a week or two, but then starts using the family one again because it's faster. WELL, HE BUILDS YOU A COMPUTER FOR NO GOD dang CHARGE, YOU THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A NASA SUPERCOMPUTER!? GOD!

Anyway, sorry to hear about your dad's ungratefulness. It's my mom that's ungrateful, here. My dad built me my own computer, and my brother takes it for his own, and feeds my mom tons of bull crap she dosn't even understand. You could tell her that there's an IRQ conflict and the CMOS needs clearing, and she would yell at you and tell her that if the computer's broken, you're the one buying a new one... since when is a motherboard a computer?

He already did replace the batteries. The computer hasnt been formatted in over a year, imagine how much crap is in the registry! :blink:

Installing 50+ games is just stupid. Install what you will play, thats what i say. It takes about 5 minutes to load windows and about another 5 minutes to get any progs to open :lol:

Some of y'all sound ingrateful.. Your parents did give you LIFE and they pay for all of your essentials. Cut them some effing slack and be happy you aren't a 30-minute visit to an abortion clinic instead of the super-geek you think you are

 

Yeah, Im a parent..
