Kelsey Grammar would have made a good match, hes a great actor smiley

I'm not a fan of Apple at all, but I do respect how good at Marketing Steve Jobs was.

A realistic question should be...

Why the hell do we even HAVE to resort to visual hacks just to do something as simple as get the start menu back?

For me, Windows 8 is a huge no-go.  It will fail as a Desktop OS, and it will fail as a Tablet OS.

due to my recent Vista crash, I lost all the videos from VideoBlocks. But now VideoBlocks is repeating the offer! This time the campaign is aimed at church leaders etcetera, (via eStudySource), but the content is the same. Also, they have written what I failed to notice from the beginning, that they will give you back your money if you forget to cancel in time. Again, you cannot download more than 20 files per day; it is not "50.000", but "max 140 of 50.000"

It may well be that they have added that extra bit due to this thread, if so, well done VideoBlocks, Well done! - That is how its done! - Maybe other sites who run offers like that will take this on board! (One can only hope Grin)

1356  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Ashton Kutcher to play Apple founder in Steve Jobs biopic on: April 02, 2012, 04:34:35 PM
I cant think of a worse possible candidate for such a role...Except maybe Ricky Gervais

Quote
Ashton Kutcher has been cast as Steve Jobs in one of two competing biopics about the late founder of Apple, reports Variety.



Kutcher, who bears some resemblance to the young Jobs, has been cast in a version by Swing Vote's Joshua Michael Stern, which will chronicle the entrepreneur's journey from "wayward hippie" to co-founder of the iconic technology firm, "where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time".


"I had the idea the day Jobs retired and I notice several IT and art directors at my company all in a buzz," producer Mark Hulme of Five Star Insitute told TheWrap. "I was observing that day how distractive his retirement was to the marketplace and I knew in my heart that his story was the film I wanted to do".

I have absolutely no problem running MS FS X.

6-core AMD Phenom II
Sapphire Radeon HD6870
16Gb memory
Windows 7 64-bit

I would be surprised if I did have problems running it as it is supposed to work on much lower spec.

WRT veering - I wonder if it is your joystick config? I had a similar problem with my joystick in FlightGear (went round in circles!).

I can run FSX on Ultra smiley - My previous post was about X-Plane  Cool

*edit*

Just re-read my last post, it does look like im talking about FSX lol sorry.

Note to self: Read properly before posting a reply
Note to self 2: Dont post when your rushing around to leave

Nice to see competition smiley

Hehe, Don't think its much in the way of 'Competition' - Not even close to the quality of yours IMHO smiley - I honestly didn't even remember about yours until about 10 seconds after I posted the preview haha.

Which language do you use for it?

C# + Regex (I Bloody HATE Regex!) tongue

MSFlight vs X-Plane 10? = Gimme X-Plane any day!

Tried that too, the trial. Got a god-awful frame rate, even though my system falls well within their specs. No idea why, but it was so bad I uninstalled it after one try.

Will try again some time, when I've had enough of MS Flight, but in my initial impression it was somewhat frustrating to get started with. Does it have tutorials? Aircraft info?

It's probably quite lame of me, but I find it tedious to stay up in the air for hours without anything interesting to look out the window at. Hawaii was a good choice for MS, as is Alaska, since the terrain is varied and beautiful (and provides for many challenges if you want). Don't know about X-Plane, but in FSX Hawaii looks totally bland, and anywhere else is only worse. Add-on scenery is expensive, limited and it would probably make the frame rate unplayable.

But I *am* hooked and I finally have a reason to upgrade my hardware. The only problem is I'm not sure any hardware upgrade will help in FSX, since it really depends on the CPU clock only, and the clocks today are pretty much what they were five years ago.


I had the same problem with Frame Rate up until I upgraded my GFX card and full utilized DX11 -I also found that (still cant figure it out) with default aircraft, when you try to take off, your plane will veer dramatically to the left for no reason I can explain, other than the default Cessna loading with the rudder on full and it doesn't help to actually rudder right to account for it.

Coming Very Soon...

Heres a sneak preview Wink

[attach=1]
Grayed out areas are fully functional, just disabled while debugging.

Version 1 has ALL the buttons you find right here on DC.

In the release after that, I plan to allow people to add their own tags onto a toolbar, together with their very own icons!

Everything is documented and is very very easy to use.  

You can easily save your posts and come back to them later (All posts save as plain text, NOT RTF!)

Will hopefully have the first version available to download soon!

Anybody wanting to try the production copy of it, please let me know smiley

Could be router issues. I recall having the same problem (him disconnecting) a couple of times when I played against Stephen in Supreme Commander 2.

Unsure cause this is a totally different machine, router AND ISP than I had when we played SC2  huh

...they just seemed to offer unlimited storage for free,

TBH, they don't say you get Free Unlimited Storage.  They say you get Free Storage and there's also Unlimited Storage, (for a price).

It's just the typical marketing doublespeak that's common these days.

Which sadly gets added to all those wonderful "consumer info" sites that supposedly rate and review various offerings. I think there's something like six or seven sites exclusively dedicated to reviewing free online backup services right now. And they all seem to like everything they look at.

Wow! Just think...people selflessly dedicated to checking out all the online backup services and reporting their findings back to you. And even more impressive, they're apparently doing it "for the good of all mankind" - and at their own expense.

Pretty amazing huh? huh
 undecided

I have no trust for "Consumer Review Websites" that have no ratings by actual users...for this exact reason...I generally do a quick search here on DoCo and if nothing shows, I go give it a try for myself. 

Hopefully, Google will pickup on this thread and anybody looking for information on this company will get directed here and can see exactly what to expect.

I have no idea if their service is any good when you do pay for it, and will not comment on that part of things (They may be top of their class...who knows) - But pretending to be 100% free for unlimited storage, waiting till a user has downloaded stuff and uploaded iles before telling them, HEY, you have to pay to get more than 15MB of space (Wtf can you upload thats less than 15mb?)...OH, and even if you DO find a use for this 15Mb of free space...we are going to remove that in 2 weeks if you don't fork over the money!

Any logical company would have put Unlimited Storage* with the Astrix leading to a possible (very well hidden) section of the terms and agreement which states payment must be made.  This doesn't mention premium accounts, it just says Free, Unlimited etc...VERY bad tactic.

At no point between signing up and downloading the software did I have any knowledge of this actually not being 100% free like it seemed...which meant I downloaded the sync software (Which by the way, harasses you with popups) without knowing there was no point.

Oh, how I yearn for the day people will finally get bored of cloud solutions.

Yeah, I know, mine is a useless comment  smiley

I didn't specifically look for cloud based services, they just seemed to offer unlimited storage for free, so where obviously the top of the list.  Thats until I ran across so many lies.

Oh, and the icing on the cake...


The free account seems to only last 13 days...AND they make you e-mail them just to cancel your account.

After posting this, I went in to their help center...

More proof that they are not very forthcoming when it comes to the truth, emerged...

When you need THIS, in your FAQ, most companies would stop and think what they are doing wrong...these just post a simple reply and make it look like the users fault.

I thought I paid 4.95, why have you charged me 118.80

 From time to time we hear this enquiry from our customers. The order form displays the equivilant monthly price then immediately displays the term it is paid over next to it. in the case of 4.95 the term of 2 years upfront is immediately next to it, thus making it 118.80.

 We try to make this as clear as possible and are trying to help our customers by offering a cheaper price for a longer commitment. We also understand that some customers are confused by this, we are of course happy to refund any users who feel they have been overcharged and will happily downgrade the account to monthly billing.


Thats in a small list of their official "Most Asked Questions" - One of only...15 or so listed...so its pretty high on the list.
