Get a grip, and learn. I suggest going back to school. Just my opinion though.
Ah, but here lies the problem. Schools are no longer teaching COBOL. They are teaching Windows and Linux, C++ and JAVA, and distributed/clustered computing. They, apparently, could care less about COBOL and mainframes.
I think Adobe (PDF and Flash) are the biggest nuisance to computers. I hate it when PDFs in firefox freeze the browser.
Check out the FF add-on PDF Download. When you click on a link that goes to a PDF it prompts you and asks if you want to open it in the browser, save it to disk, or open in with Adobe Reader (outside the browser). No more FF lockups on PDFs for me.
I turn my home computer off when I go to sleep at night, and it stays off until I get home from work the next day. Why should it be idling for 18 hours simply to save me 2 minutes of startup time?
I leave my computer on 24/7. It doesn't idle when I'm not using it. Instead it is trying to save humanity.
