@Spencer Oh totally. "What do you mean you don't know how to set up X on my phone?" "I program server applications. My interaction with devices ends once I serve up a valid response." "?? But you work with computers."
 
2:03 PM
@DavidW Heh. "What do you mean you can't replace my camshaft? You sell cars..."
 
Epsecially great when "dealing with computers" also includes looking up shit on the internet, like plane tickets. I can do that as good as you. Hell, it's exactly what the guy in the travel agency does. He didn't study computer science.
 
@NapoleonWilson Or copier paper jams.
 
It's worse now with so many stupid devices. "My Garmin won't talk to my phone, can you fix it?"
And people wonder why I don't have a "smart" doorbell, or a "smart" watch, or "smart" lights, or a "smart" TV...

@AncientSwordRage Sure. Though perhaps in another room.
@Spencer I'm the head of family tech support. LOL
 
2:51 PM
@Donald.McLean sure thing
My dad works in Tech Support and my Mum either asks him or figures it out herself
 
3:04 PM
@Donald.McLean Or you could do it here so I can follow along. I haven't used either react or vue, but I have used angular, so I have some basic knowledge.

yash.seetaThe story starts with an old man and his cook/caretaker lady in his home. I seem to remember that is was not a rich house, but well to do.

Q: Would Mandalorians be better off making a thin mesh of beskar over their armor instead of combining it to make alloys?

Blue Skin and Glowing Red EyesSince the Mandalorians in Season 7 of Clone Wars, Mandalorians are seen being taken down with single blaster bolts. It’s also mentioned that combining beskar with other metals to strengthen the durability of their armor. However, Din Djarin’s pure beskar can take several blaster bolts. Therefore,...

Q: What does each Eternal's suit iconography show

JontiaEach Eternal's suit is unique, but each seems to have some iconography at the top of the chest. Ikaris' suit seems to show a stylised person with wings, but I could be imagining it. What are the designs on each suit and what if anything are they trying to tell us about the characters?

Q: Show/movie from the late '80s where an extraterrestrial girl causes pool balls to float above a table

Brad303It may have been a made-for-TV movie, or perhaps a Tales from the Crypt / Tales from the Darkside episode. I don't remember much of the plot, although it was likely the typical alien-on-the-run-from-the-government-baddies. Maybe the girl wasn't even an alien, but that's what I seem to recall. I j...

Q: How does the Time Stone work?

taylor.2317In both Avengers: Infinity War and Doctor Strange, the time stone is used. I know that this doesn't affect the whole of the world, but just a small area, but how does this work?
