Are You A Technology Fanboy?

Recommended Posts

Being a technology evangelist, I frequently recommend software or hardware devices to friends, relatives and complete strangers walking down the street. I feel it’s my civic duty to inform the world about everything they’re missing out on in life. The other day when I saw a stranger talking on their Blackberry, I did as any Apple fanboy would do: I quickly brandished my iPhone 7 like a crucifix and rushed toward the man screaming “Look at this, you heathen!  Look at it and all of its greatness! I smite you and your evil non-iPhone phone. Be gone with you!

You are not alone Dave,  I am a Fanboy to...don't tell anyone :ph34r:

 

You still stand by your 15 year old computer and still say it is the best even though you know your lying and it is time to upgrade.

I have gotten into hours-long debates over things only to walk away thinking "That was pointless."

I now try not to superpose my beliefs on people and have since resorted to being passive-aggressive.

    • I'm new to this forum and my technical knowledge is extremely limited!

      1) Does anyone know if Microsoft are going to produce a Windows 11? I have found only conflicting information on the Internet.

      2) I have found lots of Windows 10 books on the Internet. Any recommendations for a good basic book on Windows 10?

      We pre-purchased and pre-installed the game Shadow of War on our gaming PC through Steam this week only to discover it would not launch when we clicked Play. I wanted to post our fix here in case anyone else searching the Web for clues to this needs help. 

      Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game (all 100gigs worth). 


      Tried rolling back the nVidia graphics driver.


      Tried cursing (made me feel better but did not fix the issue). 


      Scanned and verified the game from within Steam


      Ran sfc /scannow from the command line to make sure Windows was OK.



      I ultimately realized the issue was with Visual C++ Redistributable

      I had multiple version installed. Some we very old. I removed them all and installed Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 from here and that fixed it. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

      If anyone else had problems and found different solutions, let us know.
