thats just crazy

Whats the craziest thing you've ever convinced your friends about computers.

I once convinced my friend he needed a carbureator for his computer, so he could get NOS and overclock it. Google proved me wrong though.

Back in college, during my lab sessions, one of my frnd askd me, how to store a music file safely and no one should see it.

I replied, INSIDE THE RECYCLE BIN!!!!

Pity is, he did it.

The Prince of Nigeria actually did die and wants to give you 100,000,000. He contacts everyone through email to find the most trusting person to leave his money to. So far he has not found anyone, thus his fortune remains.

I told my friend that you could shut down my computer by just Speaking into the mic and saying "Shut Down Computer". He kept trying for about 5 mins.

I couldnt breath from all the laughter
