Mother complained the computer was slow.
Turns out one of the two 512 MB RAM sticks had failed, so the computer was only running on 512 MB of RAM.
Picked up a 2 GB stick of DDR2 RAM.
Holy shit, the computer goes normal speed now.

I was hoping this thread was going to be about you replacing your parents with cyborgs. You have disappointed me.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

Let's pretend it is.

How does Muffz feel that her mother can now shoot laser beams?

This thread is funny because I've told them to buy more RAM in the Summer, and I did point out that it only has 512MiB.

I put it to you that your expectations are unreasonable, and that disappointment is all you have to look forward to unless you lower your standards.

inb4 that's what she said.
No but I'm guess your what? 90? Cause you just so darn mature </sarcasm>

I have another kind of problem, where my son feels good and therefore "forgets" to take his inhaled steroid and allergy meds. I talk to him a lot about the fact that the lung inflammation of asthma is silent and unnoticeable, but that it has to be controlled so that he can continue feeling good and normal and not have to go on pred. (He gets that, he hates pred.) I think he understands, but he would rather not have the hassle of daily meds. (For that matter, he would also rather not deal with mundane daily tasks like brushing his teeth!!)

I'd like some suggestions from parents with older kids on how you deal with that problem. Do you remind and nag them and stand over them while they take their meds, or do you slowly transfer responsibility to them, and if so, how best to do that?

Fapping on steroids - now that's something I haven't tried.

Wait, what? I don't think it's a spambot. Did someone seriously just find the Flat Earth Society and decide to complain about their kids in the technology section?

I hope it's an alt, because otherwise that's really weird.
