    when i visit my family, i try not to discuss anything 'techy' with them for many reasons....one of them being, when i make a suggestion, it often goes ignored....

    for example....tonight i suggested they stop using Internet explorer and switch to firefox...or better yet...chrome.

    that's when my mom said...

    Quote:
    'i can't switch to Chrome because my Scanner only works in Internet Explorer...'

    my reaction:

    Yeah, they know not what they say. I constantly have friends say "I can delete files if that will make my computer quicker !" Nothing to do with the 23 toolbars and other crapware they install :)

    I think making fun of the person who raised you on a blackhat marketing forum because they weren't born into a computer generation and raised on windows is far worse than anything that can be said here.

    How would you like if your mother was going on forums making fun of you behind your back?

    Pretty sick imo.
