Here are few of the Most Irritating and Noob questions I have encountered. I am tired of explaining them the actual reason…! So taking my frustration out here….!!
1. For those with issues with their Broadband Connection and speed:
I am tired of Hearing about 100 Mbps Broadband connection and Your Download speeds of 10 kBps, 35 kBps and 60 kBps and so on… 100Mbps is your local network connection speed not the Broadband Speed…! Yeah LAN Speed…!!
To the Guys with a 256 kbps Broadband and getting 32 kBps download speed, guys there is nothing wrong with your internet Connection… There is a Difference between Bits and Bytes which you need to understand.
kbps = k bits per sec
kBps= k bytes per second.
Also 1 byte = 8 bits
so Broadband speed in kBps = 256kBps/8 = 32 kBps
yeah… there is nothing wrong with your connection…!! (I have just proved it above, still if you have doubt why I have divided by 8, Then you are free to jump from any floor i can't teach you).
*The same rules apply for your mobile connection, which connects at 114 kbps but you get speeds of 5 kBps download… because GPRS speed is depends on your Phone… and the same rules apply for 3G and EDGE and whatever technology…!
2. And you have a 1GB graphics card…!
You are simply too great…!! You are simply great…!! Go tell everyone that how less you paid for your Graphics card than someone who got a 512MB graphics card or maybe a 256MB graphics card. Seriously speaking, Shut your mouth…
You have 1GB of graphics card? Which Core? Speed of Memory? Well you have no Idea…! and if I try to explain you, you don't want to listen as 1GB is greater than 512MB…! Great… You can be happy with your 1GB card… Whereas someone with 512 MB card can play games which your comp can't play even though you have 1GB…!
For those who are interested, Here is the Simple explanation…!!
Graphics card has Core and Memory
Cores can be Fast and slow …!
Memory Also has speed…!
So your 1GB card can be a Slow core, low speed memory card which you got for cheap…!
And you still argue with me that your card has more memory and you paid less…!!
3. Your Old Pentium 3 processor runs faster than the Core 2 Duo/ Athlon/ Phenom / Core i Processors…!!
Oh, Yes… Go give that processor to intel and tell them the same thing… They might just reward you…!!
Actually the thing is, You use your processor for browsing and your browser launches a micro second earlier than the others sometimes and you think you have a Great processor….!! Run a HD movie and Check how great your Processor is, You will surely make out you are on edge of extinction.
That is not all…!!
There are people who ask me to send Movies across E-mail(Yeah, and you don't even have broadband…! how will you download the attachment…!).
There are people who wanted to backup their GB's of data by sending a mail over Dial-Up connection.
There are people who just see there is a network icon, which should enable them to connect to internet even though they have not subscribed to any internet plan.
There are people who want a DVD movie in 256 MB pendrive by Compressing, without losing quality.
This post is dedicated to all those who just Imagine things, in their way…!!! If you have bump into any, tell me your encounter.
