My wife's Windows 7 laptop will not update. Im gonna try these fixes, thanks guys.

Good luck. I'm 50-50 with fixing broken windows 7 update. Often only a reinstall fixes it.

Never had a problem with Win7 until the push to Win10 started. The April 2016 spyware update crashed one computers win-update, and I've been having problems with win-update on vista-10 installs ever since.

If you have broken WU, you need to get WSUS Offline (google that) and let it download all needed patches and apply them... It takes a while, but once done you have an offline storage of all updates. Great thing to put on a backup USB drive and have it attached when you reinstall Windows so you can update literally offline.

It's not friends who are the problem, it's the people who don't realise that you're a human being with feelings and stuff.


But that isn't ageism of the internet.. that's assholes in real life being assholes on the internet. They are the VAST minority but a very loud one on Twitch/Youtube. Which is why comments on youtube should be disabled, and on twitch community moderators should ban everyone that goes too far. Because nobody should accept abuse, people responsible should be banned and problem solved.

What you have to realize is this.. she basically says that (some) people are assholes on the internet. To us, that's typical old-person-just-discovered-the-internet-isn't-always-nice stuff. I mean that in the sense of "water is wet" or "fire is hot"

And really, if we were in her shoes, would we even talk to Huffington Post about something like that? (No, we wouldn't.. as we know what the Streisand Effect is...).... Or would we DO something about it ourselves, hire community people that enjoy keeping the channel clean, disable comments on youtube and so on.

Well, and we have argumentative practice being on Bluesnews and all ;p I personally welcome any older person that enjoys gaming. This.. indeed *my* hobby can only improve with more diversity in age and gender. And hey, my old WoW clan leader was in his late 50ies.. so whatever. Nobody in the clan cared much, instead we had much more respect, and he seemed happy to found a group that, basically, didn't care about anything personal related to him.

So anyway.. I think old people should enjoy gaming, and if they are on youtube/twitch, employ basic common sense... and heavy moderation. Not because of their age or gender, but because that is COMMON SENSE ;p

Actually she makes a great case.. because she seems to think youtube is the internet ;p

When in reality, nobody in a game cares how old you are, unless you are younger than 13 and playing BF4.......

Yeah, Windows updates slowdown issue, stuck at 0% or 99%.. well known problems.. had to use WSUSOFFLINE to fix this half a dozen times... I don't think it is intentional by MS, just extremely shitty coding of windows update.

2 potential issues:

1. Everyone makes a fighting dong game.

2. People use copyrighted IP to make characters.

Thats the idea though..

This is the Tekken version of MUGEN. The whole idea behind these fighting game creators is to import copyrighted IP and have them fight eachother. This game will have every 3d fighting game character out there imported to it, as well as 3d models from other games and 2d->3d conversions.

Check out saltybet.com to see how MUGEN culminated. It really is quite the spectacle.. and this is looking to do the same thing, except with a base engine that is most like Tekken instead of traditional 2d sprite-based fighters.

That is strangely addictive to watch...

I would not call putting in a female farmer skin a feature. They could easily model and patch that into previous 2-3 farming sim games.

You could say the same for pretty much any addition in annual iteration simulations.

Still wish someone would merge Spintires with this one... as it stands, it is really more a plastic lego world than anything else, and this is sadly a trend with these annual simulators Farming just doesn't feel right when all you do is basically change the field textures with your work steps.

Also it kinda bothers me mono-culture isn't punished by decreasing yields and increasing diseases. This game really shows only the "teen" rated side of farming.. if one can call it that. I get why they do it, but something in me craves for a *real* simulation with all the ugly and complex parts of farming. Mainly because it would be highly educational, and for joke, the start scenario starts you with nothing, you start your farm in-doors with aquarium sized modern growth equipment and expand from there, to a fully robot run farm ;p

thank you for that !!!

Ditto, was running old version here too apparently.

Well you guys are welcome Had to fix this on 3 PC's... so yeah. Ever since they released version 4 everyone on Version 3 was stuck there apparently, never receiving updates. What a giant (security) pitfall....


Yeah as soon as I read your post I updated several PC's. I'm usually OCD of keeping stuff updated and this totally went below my radar and considering how important pw vault is.... pretty disastrous on lastpass part imo.
ah well it saves me so much time and ease of use for random websites.

It's actually even more problematic than that. Version 4 *is* alpha so the fact that the 2 biggest security issues in quite a while are only fixed in Version 4 is downright evil. That said I don't have any issues with LastPass in Version 4, so YMMV... but when it gets down to it, I'd rather use alpha version than be exposed to two giant security holes no matter what other issues arise.

And it being an alpha also means that it isn't allowed (by Mozilla) to override 3.3 stable. Yet Lastpass pushes version 4 extension as installer if you download it from their site...

That's a lot of sigh worthy stuff imo.

Hey, lottsa people would like a farm, I'm one of them. Not that big and commercial but gentleman farming for sure. Enough to provide most of my own food and enough to sell at farmers markets and restos to make some bucks. I'd really like to get into mushroom and microgreen farming.


What is stopping you? You can establish an indoor mushroom farm with modern growth LED's and a basic vapor based watering solution for around $2k... takes about as much space as an aquarium.

What uPlay game did you link there? Redirects me to the front page of the store

uPlay has retarded geo IP features so links might not work correctly. I'm not sure what happened but until recently you could buy at least most EA/Origin games from uPlay DE.
Right now they are not showing up in the DE store. Whether that is a bug or intentional or whether the games do still show up in the UK or US store, I don't know, but here is the official announcement of third party uPlay titles. uPlay is not exclusive to Ubi games.


Then I concede that you are right Although to be fair, I did check before posting and uPlay in Germany (from the client) shows currently (no idea if that was ever different) only Ubisoft games for sale. And in case of Origin I could not find any indy aside from Popcap/SpinTop Games that EA bought, and looking for other publishers from the client when browsing 2 or so pages of trending games i Only saw EA, turns out on page 5 is Witcher 3... So yeah, it is clearly not "none" .. had a major brain far actually because I saw Rainbow Six, and thought that was owned by EA.

Interesting actually. Seems both store fronts are opening up as well.... though Origin still has horrible regional pricing, and uplay.. well as I said, I can't see what you were seeing... and this is insofar funny as I am constantly having uPlay active and browse it... I was playing Anno after all

All that aside, I guess this is a recent change with Ubi, as.. Rainbow Six Siege isn't just sold on Origin, it's also...
http://store.steampowered.com/app/359550/
And same for Anno 2205

Well, always things to learn it seems.

Uplay actually has games from several other developers, example
Same with Origin: R6
I know Valve used to sell games on other platforms too. Dunno what happened.

And imo it is extremely sad that to show what an open platform is, I actually have to point at STEAM nowadays.

What is really extremely sad is how extremely wrong you are Wink . What exactly is "open" about a Steamworks title that absolutely 100% requires Steam to run? Where is the choice? There are literally hundreds of Steamworks games on Steam.

Also, Valve's own catalog is 100% exclusive to Steam. You can buy EA, Ubi or Activision (just to name a few of the biggies) games on a large variety of platforms from GOG to uPlay to Steam. But Valve are keeping their games Steam exclusive. The only other bigger publisher who is doing this is Blizzard who are keeping their games Battle.net exclusive. Everyone else is way more open and giving people more of a choice where to obtain games.

So, saying that Steam or Valve are particularly "open" or about choice is simply blatantly factually incorrect.

Uh, the very same developer I linked to in the same response you funnily enough cut out, is on Steam and GoG entirely DRM free, you can run these games even without steam running even when you buy it via steam, and you can buy the steam key on his website if you want. This is the very definition of an open platform. Steam does not force a dev to use steamworks, and even if he uses it, nobody forces the dev to enforce steam is running while the game is.

And Valve games make up 37 of 6000 games... so that is pretty much irrelevant. How many games on Origin are not from EA, how many on uPlay are not from Ubisoft?

Hint: None
