Thanks for the help but how does that help me?



  •  While trying to find a solution to my problem I encountered this post:

    I love how the answer was chosen as the best answer even when it had nothing to do with the original problem.



  • Sweet Jesus, what the fuck is wrong with the asker? I don't think I saw a single actual word in the text of his question apart from the error messages.



  • I think that was probably a copy-paste from a google search by a severely reading comprehension-challenged individual.  Most likely none of those are the right answer.  Windows error 0xC0000135 means the program can't find a DLL it needs to load.  Did you resolve your problem?

     



  • Ugh, there is nothing worse than googling for the answer to your problem, and finding something like this where it, to the letter, matches your exact problem, only to find either worthless solutions or no replies. (Or, of course, the occasional "BUMP, Anyone have answers?" reply from the OP)

    This, however, is an epic instance of this.



  • I ran into this problem too. I fixed it completely simply by following these steps:

    1. Right click on the Chrome icon on the browser.
    2. Click on the Properties option.
    3. Click on the "Compatibility" tab.
    4. Make sure "Run this program in compatibilty mode for:" is UNCHECKED.
    5. Click "Ok" to exit the Properties window.



      If Chrome doesn't work after doing that, I don't know what else to say.

    You could always try modulating the shield frequencies, or failing that, reverse the phase polarity to generate a tachyon pulse.

    You forgot the near-obligatory bot-generated link to some dodgy 'Registry Repair' app. (and there is one in this case!).

    I once did tech support with some guy who was nominally third-line, but was in fact pure management. At one point he was hassling me about an error message a client was getting, and wanted to know what I was doing about it because the client had hassled him. Basically, I hadn't got much further than checking logs and googling error messages - it was something obscure - and when I showed him the answers I'd found, one page had one of those reg-cleaner posts. He asked me if I'd tried it, and, thinking he was just testing me, I told him 'no, because it's malware'. He suggested that I try it anyway, which wasn't quite what I was expecting.

    Come to think of it, that was the place someone was injured by the framed Health & Safety at Work poster falling off the wall, so I shouldn't have been too surprised.

    That's the funniest thing I've read in a long time.

    This is because in YA the answerer is allowed to vote his/her own answer as Best Answer. If no-one else bothers to vote, that answer wins (and the answerer gets ten points). I doubt that anyone on DWTF cares, but this is how you get onto the leader boards at YA.

    What i find worse is when the page is filled with links to experts-exchange or others of their ilk.



  •  Expert Sexchange is actually quite useful sometimes, you just have to know their trick - 

     The way the Google bot works is that it requires that the page it sees is the same as the page a viewer would see. Thus, they have to show the Google bot the same page they show you - which means the page with the answer on it, and no using CSS tricks to hide the information from a user or anything like that to hide it.

     What they do rely on is that the Google bot is a patient mechanical beastie - it'll read through the entire page. People, on the other hand, see the question, scroll down a bit, see a shitton of irrelevant stuff and a "register here to see the full answer!" link, and think "shit I have to register to see the answer. I'm going somewhere else" (or almost never, "I'm going to register!").

     However, the stuff you want is on the page - you just have to scroll down aaaaaaalll the way. I've actually occasionally found something useful like that (though more often it's people who don't know what they're doing telling people who don't know what they're asking how to do something the wrong way)



  • What is it about Yahoo Answers that attracts so many idiots? It seems like a huge proportion of the technical questions and answers look like SMS messages written in LOLspeak.




    o hai im in gr88888 need! plz send me teh codez!




    Fucking asshats. </rant>

    But then you're rewarding them with ad revenue for their shittiness. The best solution is to not visit at all, and wait a couple years until Stack Overflow overtakes all their Google rankings.



  • Speaking of Expert's Exchange -- I remember WAY back in 2000 being a member and frequent poster to a similar site.  I stopped posting when all of the questions comming in started looking like homework assignments.

    That sounded eerily like Joshua's (WOPR) answer to the "Global Thermonuclear War" game.

    The one thing I've found to be even more annoying than Expert Sexchange is when searching for some weird error pulls out only stuff in Chinese. Surely they've found the solution, but I can't understand jack shit!

  • And that is the exception that is thrown by a .NET 2.0 application or older when the .NET framework is not installed on the computer.
