This smells like spam to me.-Deozaan (September 02, 2021, 05:29 PM)
Hmmm, spam about a key logger. Are they talking about that key you need to get the spam out of the can, or ...

I wasn't trying to be prophetic since WinPatrol was a valuable utility for me for years, but it is officially gone, website and all. Users report that it still works, but the learn function no longer does, which means it no longer "learns" whether a startup is allowed or not. I haven't found a suitable alternative .no alternative?! so crazy.-Joe Hone (August 06, 2021, 04:46 PM)-superboyac (August 30, 2021, 10:30 PM)
There are two hard problems in programming: Naming things, caching things, and off-by-one errors.-Deozaan (August 24, 2021, 04:22 PM)
Sites like AfterDawn have a lot of guides on how to comvert video files, rip DVDs, etc. Consult those first. Some of those are quite old, but are still valid.-Shades (August 18, 2021, 07:43 AM)

What did you think of the reworked Captain Scarlet episodes? I preferred it when it was obvious they were puppets. I don't really get the point of the video "upgrades."-MilesAhead (August 14, 2021, 09:10 AM)
I've never seen the remade version, haven't seen the original since about the time it came out, (along with Joe 90 and the other Century 21 marionette series).
Still manage to catch one of the original Thunderbird episodes once every few years though, they seem to get repeated quite often.-4wd (August 14, 2021, 06:42 PM)

I could not say. I was too scared to watch the entire video. Those colored circles just kept getting bigger and closer! OMG!!-MilesAhead (August 12, 2021, 09:39 AM)
The same kind of thing happened to people who were kidnapped by aliens in a flying saucer. Don't fall into holes in the ground, even if a rabbit jumps into it. You will end up in Wonderland, probably with long hair and wearing a dress. There is a version for women also, but they usually are the ones that find themselves in a flying saucer.-Arizona Hot (August 13, 2021, 03:18 PM)
What's up with that?-mouser (August 11, 2021, 01:30 PM)
I'm sure there is software that is able to strip DRM from books, so a tool like Calibre can convert it to a different format that make it easy to read in your favorite reading software on your computer. Whatever this may be.-Shades (August 12, 2021, 01:13 AM)
For transferring files to/from my phone, I just use the Android version of Total Commander.-Shades (August 11, 2021, 03:29 PM)
That'll teach me to update apps at 00:20, didn't notice that K-9 Mail was in the list and now I've got it's new crappy interface.-4wd (July 28, 2021, 01:53 AM)

Microsoft unveils Windows 365, a Windows 10 PC in the cloud-Arizona Hot (July 14, 2021, 07:09 PM)
Yeah, about that...-app103 (July 17, 2021, 02:20 AM)
At the same time, Linux has become notably shittier when the majority of distributions introduced systemd, a svchost.exe clone with a bizarre understanding of how Linux was supposed to work.
They even killed text log files.-Tuxman (July 07, 2021, 09:56 AM)
I'm so happy that I've migrated to Fedora back in 2017. Haven't looked back.-Attronarch (July 03, 2021, 12:07 PM)
Very nice -- "Vic" then. Though "HarmoniousVic" has a nice ring to it!-kunkel321 (July 02, 2021, 11:17 AM)
Why Windows 11 won't run on your new $5,000 Surface PC, but a Mac from 2013 can run the next-gen macOS from zdnet-wraith808 (July 03, 2021, 05:44 AM)
What that article says (or insinuates) is that Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be the last version of Windows when they thought there would be higher adoption of UWP and the Microsoft Store, so they could rake in ~30% of all sales taking place on their store and not have to concern themselves with earning money from selling new versions of Windows. Now that they've seen relatively little adoption of their storefront, they've decided to re-theme Windows 10 and force people to pay them for it by requiring them to buy a new computer (and therefore require a new Windows license for the new hardware since Windows 10 licenses are tied to the hardware) to run it.-Deozaan (July 03, 2021, 08:53 AM)
These Walmart laptops only have 2 cores. That is a very weak offering nowadays-Shades (June 29, 2021, 12:23 PM)
Gateway used to be an excellent brand. I still have 15+ year old keyboards from them in active use today. Rock-solid, even though they are not mechanical.
That's ok though, because I now think Windows in general has come to its end of life, for me, even if it could be installed on this laptop. My next laptop will come with some sort of Linux pre-installed, not Windows. (How's ReactOS coming along, btw?)-app103 (June 28, 2021, 02:08 AM)
