How are you people installing it? The 64-bit USA ISO just has errors in VirtualBox when I try to install it.

I had problems too so ended up using VMware.

So far it seems to be the same as Win8 without the hassle of bypassing the Metro screen.

You caught me! embarassed I removed my post because after I asked, I tried again and got it to work.

I'm not sure what the solution was, to be honest.

I tried it with the 32-bit ISO and it warned me about needing to enable PAE, so I enabled it and got to the setup screen. Then I mounted the 64-bit ISO and rebooted my VM and it worked. So maybe I needed to enable PAE to get it to work?

How'd you get it to install? It crashes my VirtualBox VM during boot.

I installed a 32-bit copy in a 64-bit Windows 8.1 Hyper-V VM. From initial boot to desktop was just a bit over 5 minutes. While it runs just fine, I was rather disappointed that the sound card didn't work. Now I've learned to expect that out of a Linux distro ... But Windows on Windows??? Yeish!

OK. I guess I'll try a 32-bit ISO. . .

Heh heh. Notice the URL contains W9TPI, i.e., Windows 9 Technical Preview Image. Grin

According to Microsoft's website, the SHA-1 for the above ISO should be: EB75A3D3C0F621F175B75DC65DB036D0E00EAC43

But don't you also need a product key for the ISO to work?

If you like Risk of Rain, consider backing this game called Warlocks which is very much inspired by RoR:

It's in the final 24 hours and needs ~$1,500 to reach its goal.

Uh oh... I think the universe is going to collapse on itself.

Windows is well known for sucking every other version. XP was good. Vista wasn't. Win7 was good. Win8 wasn't.

We were all expecting Win9 to be good. But if Win9 is going to be called Win10, but Win10 is supposed to suck, but Win9 is going to be good...

CANNOT COMPUTE!

It's that time again for the Ludum Dare October Challenge!

The purpose: Just as Ludum Dare encourages you to make a game, the October Challenge encourages you to sell a game. Or put another way:

Finish a game — Take it to market — Earn $1

That is your goal. That is the October Challenge.

So far I've found it harder to find what I'm interested in. I don't care about curators. I don't care what other random or YouTube/Twitter Famous people recommend. The only recommendations I care about are from some people I actually know, and they will usually tell me "Hey, you should check out this game!" instead of making a review/curation page for me to look at.

"Endless" scrolling things suck. There's no easy to way to link to it or resume where you left off if you click a link and then the back button.

I like the color scheme. I guess.

One thing that I really do like, though, is that it is now very easy to see which games you already own, since there is now an indicator across the game's banner image which shows whether you own it or if it's on your wishlist. That's nice.

Not quite. (emphasis added below)

Andreas Diantoro, the president of Microsoft Indonesia, confirms that Windows 9 will be a free upgrade for all Windows 8 users.

It's a free "upgrade" for people who own Windows 8. That excludes a lot of people, myself included. So no, Windows 9 will not be free.

How is that a syllogism? huh

An instance of a form of reasoning in which a conclusion is drawn (whether validly or not) from two given or assumed propositions (premises), each of which shares a term with the conclusion, and shares a common or middle term not present in the conclusion (e.g., all dogs are animals; all animals have four legs; therefore all dogs have four legs.)

This is my primary source for information about the bash exploit:

Everything you need to know about the Shellshock Bash bug

As I understand it, it's not just Linux. It's pretty much anything with bash. This includes Unix systems, OSX, Linux, Internet of Things (toasters, thermostats, lightbulbs), routers, and even some tools for Windows that include bash.

It's a pretty severe problem. )c:

There's also SpiderOak, which has been around for a long time.

I completely missed the awesome new major feature that is Drop-Combine. Might I recommend an easier to read/parse changelog, something like so:

v4.8.7 Beta - September 20, 2014
  • [MajorFeature] New action available when dropping an image file onto the current image: Combine images. Let's you easily line up images side by side with automatic scaling.
  • [Feature] Added commandline option to change save file format.
  • [Feature] Added tools menu to SC system tray menu.
  • [Feature] You can now use cursor (arrow) keys to adjust cursor location during shift+PrtScr selected region capture.
  • [Feature] Made it easier to abort scrolling and other capture operations (tray menu changes to display a cancel operation item).
  • [MinorFeature] When loading settings, if a corrupt settings file is discovered, a timestamped copy of the last good backup is made so that it will not be overwritten.
  • [MinorFeature] Added Up/Down keys to scrolling capture methods.
  • [MinorFeature] Better instructions for manual scrolling captures.
  • [MinorChange] The shortcut for deleting the current screenshot has been changed from Ctrl+Q to Ctrl+Delete.
  • [BugFix] DPI was sometimes not set properly if SC was set to not save image automatically.
  • [BugFix] It was possible to restore main SC window and then minimize it during scrolling capture, rendering all SC windows invisible.
  • [BugFix] Red box was flickering in object selection mode.
  • [BugFix] SaveAs was saving .object files even when this option was disabled in options.

My 12½ y/o daughter sent me this link. It's actually got some interesting and some funny stuff there on that site.
[Link removed]

Hi IainB,

I think that link was completely inappropriate, both for this thread and for DC at large. Further, I'd appreciate if you kept posts that single out and make fun of particular political or religious views out of the "silly humor" thread. Just because you find some kind of wry, sardonic humor out of it, doesn't mean it belongs in this thread. This thread is meant for lighthearted and fun humor.

Please help keep this thread lighthearted.

Why would you use Software?  Why not blueprint it, or use general woodworking plans to do it?

People use software to make blueprints (drafting) these days. It's called AutoCAD. tongue

just frame not building my mattress.
who builds a mattress.

I've heard of people making their own mattress before. Just curious how DIY you were going with this project. (c:
