But dennil, just let him go...ignore his computer requests and whatnot from now on. Firstly, because he has proven he doesn't believe a word you say about computers. Secondly, because in a few weeks when he realizes he has been jacked he will come running to you blaming you for letting him do this instead of taking responsibility for his own stupidity.
i hate people like that...i know i have given wrong advice in the past....but compcrap (paq of wolves) is absolutely the worst brand to get...so my frined decides to get that and he got his comp from best buy of all places. man...and he keeps on thinking that its a fast comp. hey if your neighbor ever needs to buy some stuff refer him to me...i'll give him a run for the money! LOL i think i have some p166 WITH MMX TECHNOLOGY lying around for him...
When he comes to you with problems, just say to him "I am too busy working with people who VALUE my advice. Please go back to (whatever a$$hole salesman sold him the card) for advice, since you are willing to give him your hard earned money."
Or you could just start charging him.
One of the things that amazes me about computer work is that, free advice always falls on deaf ears...but if they are PAYING you to help them, they tend to do what you say...I consider that a WIN-WIN situation.
Dennil: Forgive and forget. I'm still helping friends who disregarded my advice. People don't listen for a variety of reasons and usually they act on impulse. We are all like that about something. It's just human nature.
