Have you tried turning off the computer and turning it back on?

Kidding aside, I know what you're talking about. My mom actually did buy a magnet and coffee mug; maybe the company left its name on the merch somewhere. I'll see if she still has them.

It's baffling how that can be the solution, isn't it? It feels like there should be some big, complicated fix. LOL...stupid computers.

In the industry we refer to it as the universal repair utility

That along with "user error" are my two favorite phrases

PBCAK - isn't that a pretty common issue?

I take my students to the lab weekly. They are always sooooo impressed that I know how to ctrl/alt/del, reboot, and a few other minor things. They're convinced that only teens could possibly be tech savvy, never a teacher. I tend to keep it secret that I do web design in my 'spare time' for much bigger $$$ than I get for teaching them. Let the mystery remain...

Who do they really think invented all of that cool stuff they carry around with them? It wasn't a 15-yr old!

Mad props to you for being a teacher. I could never do that job seeing that I don't have much respect or faith in the younger generations, let alone the parents who do a ****** job at raising their kids today.

I feel like men from age 25 and on have been saying this same thing four thousands of years. It was said about us, our parents, our grandparents, their grandparents and so on. Though, I suppose I'm just supposing.

There is solid documentary evidence to support your point of view.

You can find pundits from the Cold War, you can find fuddy-duddy ecclesiastics from the Middle Ages, you can find stick-in-the-mud warrior-politicians from the twilight of the Roman Republic who all said the exact same thing. I'm pretty sure you could find a cave painting somewhere for which the translation would read: "Ug think kids today not know value of hard work. Not know value of goat. Not able to appreciate little things in life, like fresh loincloth and warm fire on cold winter evening. Ug worry for future."

Are you using Chrome? If so...

"This is a very simple problem that can easily be fixed. Just Click on the wrench icon on the upper right of you Google chrome browser, and navigate to Tools>Task Manager. After you have Task Manager open, highlight the box that says "Plug-in: Shockwave Flash" and click the "end process" button. Then simply reload the pages you want to watch."

Let me know if that helps!

Okay guys seriously, there was a full conversation here about rebooting and "turning it off and on again" and not one of you ****ers mentioned The IT Crowd. This is un-****ing-acceptable. Go to Netflix and watch it this instant.

"What operating system is it using?"

"Uh, Vista."

"We're going to die!"

You're welcome.

I completely disagree with the whole teens are so tech savvy thing. It reminds me of how in the 80's people would label kids as tech savvy because they could set the time on the VCR. Being a competent end user doesn't mean you know a lot about the tech you're actually using. Sure they know what buttons to push, how to navigate, etc. but that's like being able to drive a car and calling yourself a mechanic.

The reason a teen would think adults are bad with new technology is because his or her parents are and their parents have likely said something to the effect of: "These things are hard for people our age."

This. A big part of my job is very basic tech support for coworkers, and the incompetence (even among end users but especially with the more technical stuff) is inter-generational.

That's why I don't get why they think they are so tech-savvy. They THINK that they are - but if a simple ctrl-alt-del to get out of a frozen program is impressive, how savvy can you really be?

Sure, they've figured out how to use the touch screen on their iPhone. But really, even kittens can use a touchscreen. Can they write apps? Of course not! And they have a basic knowledge of powerpoint and word, but the intricacies of publisher and making things look nice are beyond them. I've introduced them to other options for presentations (Prezi) and they are always so amazed to find out there is a better way than just throwing a bunch of cut and paste onto a few ppt slides.

Every year I offer them the choice to do a website/blog for some of their projects. I have yet to see any of them do that. They always go for the safe and familiar. If you stick with the old stuff and don't learn the new, it won't take too long before you become the dinosaur.

Why do these sick people do these things? At least, I hope it was a sick person. The alternative is that they were just plain evil. It's easier to deal with mental illness than evil.
