The gpos do work though and i can prove it. Im the sysadmin for a small school of 200 pcs. Over a break when there is noone in i can simply leave a PC on, switch off the power saving and leave it alone. Then i just examine the gateway firewall logs for that machine. The only traffic going out is ms cert revocation requests (and sophos revocation requests even though sophos SHOULD be talking to the endpoint server....) no other spurious traffic. We also use a MITM (and peek n splice) HTTPS proxy with no direct non-proxy internet access therefore nothing can escape the logs.

LTSB is ok except we needed the store for minecraft EDU. Yes you can hack the store onto LTSB (i have an image for our digital signs) but I used the EDU enterprise CB instead.

Neat if you can install to network locations. The old way of doing this was to create a virtual drive on the network share, mount the drive and install to the mounted drive. Not a lot of linux based NAS supported this though due to permissions issues.

Very bad things happen to shared resources holding mount3d drives if multiple sources attempt to write to them. The whole point of SANs etc...

There are plenty of GPOs to stop the collection. Some versions of 10 dont even have cortana installed (out 10 EDU enterprise doesnt). Our 10 rollout worked just fine, most apps are disabled for users, no telemetry, no bloated start menus. In fact the footprint is smaller than a fully patched 7. Too much fuss over 10 without people looking how to customise it.

Fairly pointless. Most enterprise customers are SA anyway so you will get upgrades for free. The monthly offerings are also fairly pointless unless you have under the 25 user requirements for SA VL.

I got GOTY for about a tenner in steam sale last year. Easily worth it as ive had well over 100hra of fun. Stopped playing fairly recently when they changed the difficulty levels as the middle difficulties are ghost towns now. Still ive had my money worth.

i mean, what were people expecting from a procgen game? you can't build compelling story content for 18 billion worlds. and if you say, well, build it for just a few worlds, then it becomes no different to a game like mass effect. all the story is concentrated in a few areas and everything else gets ignored because everyone knows there's nothing interesting out there.

sure there were a few misleading statements, but even if they were all true, it would still be a soulless piece of shit game. either way, it's exactly the game i thought it was going to be and i can't fathom how people ever expected otherwise.

Frontier on the Amiga was better.

Ship the game. Add ships as dlc later. This is how STO has been running. But you cant do that as all the money has gone on blow and hookers.

Bethesda usually make good games but they also make buggy games. This isnt really a secret so just wait for the first 'service pack' patch.

Best place to sit for a movie? At home in front of my large (but not too large) tv. My slippers and comfies on, beer, pizza and family around me. Will save me at least 5 on parking, 40 on tickets, 20 on snacks.

My setup at home is modest and cost about 600. Ob movies alone it will pay itself back in 10 cinema trips. Cinema is a complete rip off these days, jot like i remember as a kid.

We have samsung and a handful of brothers here. Both are cheap to run but the samsungs are better. Nicer interfaces and decent priced long life toners. I do like the separate drums and toners on the brothers though

Rising storm was ok but brutal MP learning curve. Cheats spoilt it though, too many wallhacks.

News Comments > New Intel CPUs Revealed
15. Re: New Intel CPUs Revealed Sep 1, 2016, 02:54 Armengar
 
I remember buying a 286 laptop for 2500. It had twin floppy bays (no hdd). Work paid for it of course. Then i had a 386 25 with coprocessor addon. The thing is, its performance was worse than the amiga with 68020 2mb addon that i also had at the time.


In the space of 4 years i went from 16 bit computing to proper GUI. In the next 4 years orchid released their voodoo card and HL1 was released. The rest is history really.

Computing was an art back then, you needed addon cards for everything except the keyboard- sound, floppy, ide, network and vga were all expensive addons.

News Comments > More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney
162. Re: More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney Jul 27, 2016, 11:18 Armengar
 
So break Win32 and lock just about every large scale deployment out? We already run LTSB as a windows 10 deployment - no store, no cortana, no edge and updates via WSUS. I have ZERO intention of using client branch.

If I have to look at using the store as the only way to deploy 300 machines then I will move to Linux. Pure and simple. I will look at the bespoke software (like Sibelius, autocad, anquet maps etc) and see if there is a Linux or online alternative.
