funny thing happen bout IT/computers that I realize.
hahaha. now i am almost at the end of My IT studies. after what happen just now, I felt like writing something here. So Most of the thigs here i want to compare myself before i know alot about computers, then when i was an average computer person and an IT student. here goes.
1. Printer Problem.
beginner’s level: .since It was rare to use the home printer it rarely break down. You just buy the cheapest and use it. when The ink would not come out you open it, guess that the ink ran out then buy new expensive original cartage ones and use it. – hours of solving the problem 10 minutes. (given you already buy the ink)
Second: After know what a computer cpu graphic card and so on, you know where to buy “cheap” imitation inks or refills. time taken 1 minutes for cheap imitation inks,10 minutes to refill.
after taking IT course.: You want to print some things. ink would not come out, display says ink Jam, or catrage not found. You open it, kick it, curse it , unscrew it, look for ways of fixing it. kick it again and repeat. despair, you go out try buy new cartage. wala! It works. days Spending to fix it. 1 1/2 days.
Moral. the easiest way it The best way.
2. Upgrade computer.
primary school.-before knowing alot about computers, you buy the stock, default computers.
high school -knowing what DDR, HD SAta, ATI and stuff. you build your own. and assume 5GB of ram is fast.
undergrad -after learning so much in college, You found out you must balance CPU frequency, Bus speed, Memory speed, and yada2. you do noe need to buy HUGE ram, HD and so on if you have A slow Motherboard.
primary school. – 1515/ dailup is good enough.
high school – 1 mbps enough to play game or surf, and curse ISP for really terrible line.
College- you know what interference, line of quality, Quality of service, NAT, ip address, PAP, CHAP, interneal resistance, and so on. you blame telephone provider for bad phonelines, ISP for bad Addressing, The world for spreading malwares.
