    It seems like this has become all of OT's Tech Support forum (excepting questions pertaining to programming languages, or higher level hardware questions.)

    To everyone who's post looks like the following: "heyI'vegot a athalohn xp 2150XPPlus, a geforce 62mb video, and 160 gigabite harddrive, my game won't run!!! HELP!!!" Edit: "Oh yah the game is quake4".


    Why not try posting in alt.certification.a-plus??????

    Why? Because we're already here. Not everyone reads newsgroups... not everyone has the patience to sit and wait for a proper response...

    Actually, asking the makers of the products would be a good start ;)

    This is the Computers and Programming forum, right?

    Ask what you want, if someone knows the answer they will resopond. Thats the way it works.

    having ur a+ just means ur book smart. i dont have my a+ and im the senior tech at CyberCity.

    i dont mind helping ppl out here occationally (when its in my area) otherwise i leave it alone.

    posting in here also helps for others who need help in the future they can read the archives (though that is rare for noobs). i say "yeah post it in here" i mean i could give 2 shits honestly.

    Yea, someone stated it really well here at some point, that we don't mind n00bish questions, because we all had them at some point, and by accepting and answering them, the people asking them can become smarter and eventually be the ones answering the questions and be active members in the furm.
