It is not really all that massive. Nor is it impressive in other ways. It is fairly simple and straightforward. *shrugs*

I would say Microsoft did. ~5 years before Apple. I had a touch screen smart phone that was GPS enabled, could send email and surf the internet, and install applications and games, connect to wifi; long before the iPhone. So did many people and businesses. Apple made it stylish and more user friendly and marketed it to the general public.

I'm not sure what to make of

I'm done with SLI, too many of the game I play don't optimize for it. It became a chore to use to the point that I pulled one of my GTX780s and it's been sitting on my shelf ever since (2 years now).

Can I have your unused 780 for free?!

It is funny and odd, that I have had the same general symptoms as Blue has expressed, starting at the exact same time; and the same apparent getting better and then worse again.

Mine I blame on an airplane trip a few days before.

I said drug testing office workers is insulting. I don't care what the test is for. My employer doesn't need access to my bodily fluids to determine if I'm good enough to work for them.

Should they also test my blood sugar? What if I'm diabetic?
How many hours of sleep do I get a night?
Maybe I have sleep apnea... A dead employee is also a bad prospect.

Sorry, before you work here we're going to require you to sleep over night at this testing center. We're going to hook up all of these wires to you because sleep deprivation has been shown to effect performance on nearly an equal level with some drugs.

While I am not pro drug testing or defending it in any way. Your argument is just plain wrong and silly. Drugs are a choice. Yes in some cases a convoluted choice with lots of outside driving factors, etc etc etc. But you can not chose to stop being diabetic or have sleep apena. Which is why these tests do not actually check (or supposed to) for prescription drugs, as those are medical conditions and you are not supposed to discriminate for medical conditions.

Which also makes the whole drug testing fairly frivolous, as prescription drugs are by far more abused than all the hardcore illegal drugs.

Another, much cheaper option then a crazy expensive case and cooling; which totally depends on how your office/space is configured. Is to just spend ~$30 at amazon from some acoustic sound dampening foam tiles and put it around computer case where major noise is coming from. Obviously not directly up against it blocking fans, but the surrounding area and such.

Totally dependent on your setup, and if it can be made it look nice. But works quite well.

If your back pain is not from an injury or over excursion, then it is actually probably cause by tight hips and psoas, or weak glutes. Very common. Give this video a watch and check out some psoas and hip mobility drills, and if your gluts are weak do some squats and strengthen things up (body weight squats are fine).

Not sure what the answer is, but I wonder if there was a software way to kick off a GPS beacon if the user hits 9-1-1-send. There's no guarantee that you can get a GPS location data, but possibly tower triangulation? I'm out of my league here, but it's something that needs consideration.

That would be trivial to do, yes.

I just have to wonder, who does not know where they are?
I understand say driving down a highway or long stretch of road and can not give exact position for example, but you should at least know you are on X road and you were heading from Y to Z and approx time in route is enough to narrow it down as far as you need; as the emergency crew will have to drive the road anyway...

Do not use the electric hedge trimmer to much Blue!

If you look around carefully at most other hedges now, they are very unhealthy and crappy, and require replacing ever so often. The problem with electric hedge trimmers is that they just cut everything off at the same place. All this does it promote growth at the cuts, and after a couple of seasons you have one of those hedges that the outside is full of small new growth but completely blocking the light from getting into the interior, and so the plant starts suffering and dies. But before that you wind up for a few years having one of those nothing but stick hedges and little bits of green on the top.

It is a cheap and quick method people use, "pro" landscapers love it, because it gives quick results fast. And then in a few years you pay them even more to put in new one. Real pros avoid them, or use them sparingly.

You want to cut entire sections off, down to the ground line, and smaller sections, to get the shape you want. And you want to open up the hedge to allow light to get to the inside and bulk of the plant.

That $850MM is the equivalent of 27,500 minimum wage jobs at $15/hr. If you split it that way, you'd probably have $700MM in the economy. Businesses would thrive.

Not quite. It is about half that. The average overhead for an employee is ~ 100%. I.E, if I pay you $10,000 a year, with all other expenses considered, you cost me 20K a year.

I would say we would be better off figuring out how to better manage and reduce overhead. I sure would love to get pain 50% more without actually costing my employer anything.

Yo! I am here for shameless self promotion and such.

My GF is trying to do a GoFundMe thing to raise money for Vet bills for a horse. Freakin' expensive. But she is also to embarrassed to advertise it to her friends, for them to advertise it, etc. So I figured I would h arras you guys!

More info here:
https://www.gofundme.com/charlotteisgreat

And despite not posting regularly for years (work blocks gaming websites now! ugh!), I still have more posts than most people!! Except NIN of course..... And yes, I still visit everyday which is why I have no shame in self advertisement here! Share it with everyone you know, or if you happen to be in a good place in your life and can help out because you love horses or are just really nice, go for it.

With regard to content, or lack of.

They have demonstrated basic weapons and destruction over a year ago.

So really, having that rudimentary mechanic with the vast exploration; it is like a newage Pokemon. You collect as much as you can.

You can also shoot things and goof around.

It is like combining the collecting side of Pokemon, the open world playfulness of Garys Mod, space flight and weapons mechanics of Elite, and throw in some of the free formness of Minecraft.

I mean, those are all very successful 'games'. I personally do not get the appeal of say Minecraft myself, but millions of people love it.

So yes, there is a lot of content, and also a lot of none content.
Maybe people will find it fun and put hours and hours into it, maybe not.

Really though, they can guarantee it a success if they could add a mod support type thing, where people can create their own worlds and script mall events, so people can build short stories and 'levels' ala Mincecraft. The kids these days seem to love that.

RedEye9 wrote on Oct 13, 2015, 17:56:
When I make a blanket statement about Windows 10 being beta or if W10 has any advantages over W7 I should probably preface it with the following; I build, fix and troubleshoot pc's for a living.

In my book there are many reasons not to downgrade my pc's to Windows 10:
Here are just a few; Edge Browser, Windows as a service ie. beta ( new builds continually coming down the pipeline ) , advertisments are coming to your start menu, you rent solitaire, unknown privacy issues and I have lost count on the number of W8/W10 systems I have fixed because the fastboot hybrid hibernation file corrupted....
There are many more reasons not to upgrade, if you want to expend a little effort and search for them.
Here's a link to get started http://www.infoworld.com/author/Woody-Leonhard/

For the majority of people including my customers, W7 is fine.
The subsystems and kernals of W7 are plain just good enough for me.

I got to chime in here and be honest, your reasons for not liking it are pretty silly in my opinion.

Don't like Edge? Do not use it. You still have FireFox and Chrome. You are not really using IE previous versions of Windows, are you?
You rent solitaire? Do not 'buy' the new solitaire then! The old solitaire can still be transferred over and run just fine, if you really want it....
Continuously making upgrades and improvements....is a complaint? Yeah, if things start coming that screws stuff up, complain. Please! But, complaining that instead of waiting 2 years to fix something, they are fixing things asap. Wha?
As people have previously said, the privacy issues are over blown. Yes, maybe originally they were hard to turn off, but that has been improved. But if you want all the crazy personalized assistance stuff everybody is craving, well, the system has to learn things about you. You can just turn it all off and not get the benefits.

It has not been perfect, it has had plenty of problems. But, there is not a single operating system on any computer that has not had problems. This was quite smooth, given Microsofts history.

Typed up on a non Windows 10 system, because I am not blindly following Microsoft or rebelling against Microsoft either.

I got a CyberStat. It is like a poormans nest, but I like it better. You can setup a program like any modern thermostat, but login via phone app or website and change program or go to manual mode.

This is very convenient for me, because when I leave work fluctuates via a few hours, so I can quickly login and tell it when to get ready for me to be home!

Why the original and not some of their more recent sequels?

It's wire frame graphics for crying out loud. They could have done better than this.

I suspect it is because Gamtek or Kanomi, or whoever bought them, still own the distribution rights.

If you do want to play Frontier: Elite 2, I recommend GLFrontier. It does not make it look amazing by any means, but it does look better. And there is no hassle getting it to run on a modern system. Just run it.

PC Gaming > Post your FPS config - old school
6. Re: Post your FPS config - old school Sep 17, 2014, 11:03 Enahs
 
Hmm, I figured out how to address Blues issue about control/pinky, by not, while still keeping the same general standard layout. Though, with modifications.

E - Forward
D - Back
S - Left
F - Right

This makes Q, A, Z, Shift, Caps, all incredibly easy to access with my pinky.


A - Crouch
Z - Prone (or if not prone option, something else)
G - Grenade, how perfect is that now?
Q - Lean Left
W - Lean Right, I know, weird, but it works.
R - Reload, again, how perfect.
Space - Usually Action / Interact

LMB - Fire
RMB - Jump
MB3/4/ - Alt Fire/Zoom depending on game, which is which.

Lots of other for different games, but that is the base set. My moving to ESDF instead of WASD, it really opens up the space of the keyboard. You have more buttons to hit with your pinky, and quicker and closer to the rest of the keys for special things.
