Didn't mean to imply GlovePIE had adware. I've talked with its dev enough to know it's highly unlikely he would do something like that. Meant that since GlovePIE's website isn't up anymore and you might end up downloading it from a free download site like Download . com which have added adware to their downloads before.

Didn't know GlovePIE still had features FreePIE didn't. I've run into the case where neither had a feature I wanted, but the FreePIE devs made a module after I asked. I know GlovePIE's dev was happy and amazed with how many people have found it useful.

Used Glovepie years ago. Talked with the dev a few times on other forums. Don't think he works on it anymore. If you want something that is still being developed you might want to try FreePIE. It's opensource and you don't have to download it from unofficial sites that occasionally try to bundle adware.

The election was so close that I've come to see the result as a bad roll of the dice. A few minor tweaks here and there -- a more enthusiastic Sanders endorsement, one fewer of Comey's announcements, slightly less Russian involvement -- and the country would be preparing for a Clinton presidency and discussing a very different social narrative. That alternative narrative would stress business as usual, and continue to obscure the deep social problems in our society. Those problems won't go away on their own, and in this alternative future they would continue to fester under the surface, getting steadily worse. This election exposed those problems for everyone to see.

Trump sucks, so does Hillary. Clinton would have given bankers and oil positions as well. Don't ignore the Clinton record of deregulation and pushing oil company agendas on foreign countries. If she won it would be business as usual while important issues would be ignored. With Trump(a perceived threat to many) as president there are more people willing to fight for needed changes such as reduction of power for the presidential office.
The upcoming fight over Trump not properly divesting or placing all of his assets in a blind trust, while congress is trying to pass strict laws to prevent conflict of interest will be a good start.

If the emoji thing is true and not another example of fake news, then why would he allow Larry Page to attend? Don't need tabloid level BS like this in the news while Trump is assembling the worst cabinet, full of insiders lobbyist and worse. There is much bigger news than needs more attention than spreading gossip about Trump possibly holding a grudge against someone for something trivial and not against someone who actively campaigned against him.

The source of this 'news' is Politico... that explains everything.

People forget how much of what we 'know' is complete BS.
All sides give us a story that fits their agenda. Some of which might be true.

Trump stated in an interview after being elected that LGBTQ equality is a settled issue and will not be changed under his administration. There will be no new anti LGBTQ laws and laws in effect will not be repealed.

If you want to hate on Trump don't ignore the pieces of shit he is appointing to his cabinet. Climate change deniers, banksters, corporate lobbyists, Newt Gingrich...

I wouldn't be surprised(wishful thinking) if he tells all of his cabinet "you're fired" within the next two years after they try controlling the office and he realizes just how bad they are.

My old AMD 4890 would cause system resets. Worked fine for a few months, and then started rebooting my system while playing games. It started with intensive games, but soon would reset in most games. Checked the temps and voltage in software and they were always ok. Used an IR thermometer and found a chip not covered by a heat sink sitting next to the video out, was overheating. Under clocking the card by 10% or forcing the fans to run at 85% or more solved the problem until it could be replaced.

If your problem is similar make sure to were ear protection. AMD fans can be deafening.

The Ad Wars will soon result in sites using XMLHttpRequest to load the content. Blockers will adapt. Soon advertisers will use random page layouts with layered semitransparent divs to construct a page. Will become difficult for blockers to bypass... for a while. Heuristic will be used, then server request timings to detect them. Eventually blockers will realize it's easier to just take screenshots of the page and black out all of the ads. In the end it will be AI vs AI until the inevitable revolution.

Just another arms race.

Also... ick. From said article: And, in very bad news, NMS has already proven itself a major content recycler. Every planet I go to has the same "settlement" and "mural" structures, right down to the north-south-east-west positioning of iron-built buildings in a mountain's pit. The dynamic content generators have their limits, and it didn't take me long to find them.

I watched a few hours of streams and saw the same handful of buildings over and over and over again. They are everywhere. It's like searching for a Starbucks in Seattle. You'll find one on every corner and they all look the same.

I don't really want to jump on the hater bandwagon as I think this looks like a really interesting game, however the lack of PVP just screams "you have to play the game on our servers because you are all dirty pirates who will play for free if we let you have the full game". This is not really the sort of game I think should be on GOG.

Except you don't have to connect to the servers at all to play. Hello games said the GOG version will be DRM free and playable offline. All you will miss out on by not connecting to their servers is sharing discoveries with other people.

Just tried WSUS Offline on my broken win7 install. Some updates failed but it did install 50+ successfully. Now windows update doesn't crash while searching for new updates. Guess FOSS is better than all of Microsoft's repair tools.

Jesus some of you have an axe to grind here. If setting zany QOS rules to prevent something that takes 3 clicks to disable, if it's not working for your computer/network, is "making the right decision", I'll gladly keep making the "wrong" ones over here.

I don't like Windows 10 or Microsoft's BS as much as the next person, but a good deal of what I've been hearing from people about Windows 10 crosses the line between actual issues into clueless griping.

The problem wasn't fixed by enabling p2p updates(it was disabled). I tried that. If there is another three click solution(or more) I'd like to know what it is.


We had 10+ computers on the network and the internet wasn't working for anyone. I tried to diagnose why. The router log showed thousands of connections coming from the only win10 computer on the network. All going to windows update servers. I've never seen that many connections before. Unplugging the cable to the win10 box temporally fixed the problem. Our modem can only handle 4032 sessions. Normally we have less than 500 sessions, but win10 opened as many as it could. Editing the registry to limit the max connections did nothing(used to work with win8). Neither did turning on/off p2p updates. Tried win10 on a second computer with a fresh install, also tried an insider preview copy. Nothing stopped the flood of sessions. Gave up trying to fix the problem with windows 10 and instead created a QoS rule on a router.

What should I have done? I'm not a pro network admin, but don't think I'm guilty of clueless griping(this time). Just dyslexia, and being stuck with dsl.

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.

The last Windows 10 user on my network finally gave up last week and reinstalled Windows 8.

Over a dozen computers on the network and not a single Win10 POS left. No more will they DOSS the network every time a new patch comes out. When window update couldn't connect to a server it started requesting connections as fast as it could without waiting for a response. End result: active connection overload, no one could access the internet. Good riddance Microsoft. I no longer have to config custom QOS rules to keep you from DOSSing my network.

The registration free demo is interesting.
Would buy it, but $9 a month is too much for me to spend on a game like this.
Will wait to see how the single player turns out before purchase.

Your motherboard might have a pcie2.0 not a 3.0 slot. The 1070 should be backwards compatible with a pcie2 slot. It would be a little slower on loading textures into memory but fps would be nearly the same.

Here is an article about pcie2 vs pcie3 performance

Purchased a Logitech MX518 mouse back in 2005. The scroll wheel needs to be cleaned every few months now, the rubber coating wore off, and a skid pad fell off, but otherwise after 10+ years of gaming it's still works as well as it did when it was new. Logitech and Microsoft mice have always lasted many years for me.
