Anything at all would help him, but of course he's full of excuses, always a chicken and the egg sort of thing.
    "I can't get a job because I need this or that and I can't get this or that because I don't have a job." He wants to do what I do, sell on Ebay and Etsy. Predictably he never gets off his ass to try. Instead he bugs me to sell his stuff like I'm some sort of money making genie. Every Wednesday he calls begging for a ride to the local food bank at which point I realize I'm just enabling him. He pays no rent and has few bills. Combine that with no motivation I don't think he is every going to get out of that place. It's depressing telling a friend I've watched sink slow to go away because they've become a parasite but at this point I'm gonna have to shoot Old Yeller.
    Many of these individuals use manipulation and excuse to get what they want because it has worked so far. I'm an equal opportunity dick. If I have to work and have responsibility, you don't get a free pass. Use all the guilt and emotions you want but that mind power is useless with me. There is a fine line between helping and enabling.

    Is it just me, or has the Genesis Does! subforum become a technofile fest? I miss the days when such talk would be reserved for Tech Aid and Blast Processing.

    Been given an Asus laptop - good specs, appears to be working, etc. Except for one thing - the harddrive is failing. It's semi-new as well. Tried taking it apart, and the thing is nasty cheap. There is no back panel to pull the drive out - you have to literally de-assemble the whole laptop, and pull it out. It's also made of wobbly, cheap plastic. Not gonna bother, lol.

    I think I'll get a drive, hook it up to USB and turn this a crude, makeshift desktop PC. Do all my office work on it, etc.

    It's true. I hit the point with him that any help is enabling. The best help he could get is from himself.

    The Homepage of the Oldternet - Where it's always 1992 (or so).
    Youtube - Insert socially-unacceptable pejorative replacement for "Youtube" here.

    This is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. Host of an Iraqi cookery programme loses his cool with a prank caller on TV. I was crying.
