Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
One of my family members is a real do-it-yourself type- won't ask for help with anything, especially with computers. This morning, her computer couldn't connect to the net. So, instead of asking me to fix it, she's begun to dig around, changing everything she can to make the internet connect again. Every time I offer to help, she throws a fit and tells me to leave her alone.
At the rate things are going, I forsee a massive computer repair bill caused by the OS freezing up and corrupting. How the hell do I convince her to let me look at it and to stop fucking around with stuff she has no knowledge about, and more importantly, how do I teach her she needs to take the PC in or let me fix it instead of trying to fix it herself?
