  • Help Desk Episode 1 with Chris Pirillo (Pilot)

    Rename the show, "Three Experts and a Tool."


    Chris takes simple things and makes them more confusing. His level of understanding is below the people writing in asking the questions, thus the comments he offers back to the experts are either just silly or cumbersome at best.


    I about gagged when he was trying to get to the compatibility tab for a program, and even an average users would have known better, let alone ending up digging through the file system under program files to find a generic EXE to show the compatibility tab.


    HEY CHRIS, THERE IS THIS THING CALLED THE ‘START MENU’, and if you would have just clicked it open and selected ANY program that was not included with Windows as part of the OS, the compatibility tab is available so you could have demonstrated it without digging through the freaking folders to program files. Oh, you also don’t have to go to the EXE, when the expert said it don’t work on a shortcut, he was referring to the fact you were trying to open it on a freaking Internet shortcut, not an EXE shortcut. (See how much more confusing you made this because you were confused?)


     It makes me wonder if Chris has used Vista or Win7 at all or really is just this stupid. Either way, this was really a sad mix for the audience.


    Suggestions: Find someone that is at least on the level of an Average channel9 viewer, so they can understand the answers from the experts and help to mainstream the ideas so they are easier for people to understand.  Having a baboon confuse the answers even more because they don't understand the topics is just annoying.

    Chris seems to be more of a Mac person, especially when he is getting free Apple products and at the same time changing direction and telling the world Vista sucks.  Chris, Vista never sucked, you do…
