  1. Y, I think you should test that theory by doing something really dangerous, such as driving off a cliff, for instance, like Bill Murry's character in Groundhog's Day
  2. So sad. RIP! He had such a huge presence here.
  3. Wow. So sorry to hear. He was an amazing person around here.
  4. Blind Faith Blind Faith, one of my all-time favorite albums
  5. Thanks, Indy. Shoot. Mine is a long ways from there: Version 1511, Build 10586/545 Seems to be working much better--had to make a Win 10 disk and fix the startup. Wonky AMD drivers, I believe.
  6. So, I not the only one having problems Away from my main machine three weeks and it doesn't work--Bonkers: blue screens, reboots over and over, blah, blah. Does Windows show that the Anniversary update was installed? Where? Mine just says Windows 10 Pro under computer Properties.
  7. Like the points are worth something. Whoopdedooda!
  8. Soooo, tech tips for real $$$$ is dead--has been since 2011 Anyway, not just for techies, if you can burn an iso file, you can do this: http://www.zdnet.com/article/how-to-turn-your-windows-10-upgrade-into-an-iso
  9. Whenever I work on someone's computer, I put a folder called Computer Maintenance on the Desktop. In that folder I put aliases for all the programs I used to work on that particular computer. It almost always contains Malwarebytes, Auslogic defrag (all drives but Solid State), Windows Disk Cleanup, Chrome and/or Firefox, whatever free anti-virus they want (usually MSE or Avast), and sometimes Super Anti. I cannot recommend a paid anti-virus, but will leave what they have (usually it is expired). I also usually leave a notepad doc of what I have done and when. I tell customers they may delete the folder at their peril. I also tell them, "You know, you could update and run those programs yourself," but they never do . So I charge them again the next time, but the folder makes my job easier. LIG ffr2 P.S: again, you can install all those program in about three clicks with ninite.com.
  10. Tips and Tricks has been going on for a long time, so excuse if this is a repeat. Got a pesky relative or friend that needs computer help all the time? Simplest way I have found is to take control of their computer remotely with TeamViewer. Requirements: both have to have program running and you type in the number/code for the other person's computer. It's that easy! I get my TeamViewer at www.ninite.com, a Tips and Tricks Winner a while ago, and which has pretty much every program a person would need--all without any crapware and you can do multiple installs! Oh, Yeah: they are all free, free I tell you. Life is good. Carry on, ffr2
  11. Your link doesn't work. www.linux-bible.com does though
  12. (Friday funnies) Ho hum. Bored with cat pics? Try squirrels http://news.yahoo.com/photos/curious-squirrels-make-for-hilarious-photos-1399571293-slideshow/
  13. Mushrooms! Heh, heh. Yeah, yum!
  14. My best to him and his family. Get well, CB, so we can see you around here soon.
  15. Very cool! A friend made me one with MS Publisher a long time ago; then had to find a computer or someone that had it to edit it.
  16. Thought this was an interesting rendition, MTV Awards 1989: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fNxPuytJe0&feature=player_embedded
  17. Ooooooh, uninstalled nVidia drivers and used whatever bullcrap Windows installs by default; funny thing though, after several reboots when I hit nVidia control panel button, it said 331.65 drivers where installed. So...... Anyway, I have 8.1
  18. Didn't want to turn this into help, just reporting my experiences, but here's my specs--could make a difference, I guess: Intel 2600K, Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3, Samsung 830 128GB SSD, Cosair 4x4GB Vengence 1600 DDR3, EVGA GTX 460 SC EE 1GB, WD 1.5GB Caviar Green, LG Blu-ray burner, and Antec HCG-750W, running Windows 8. Parts are circa 2011.
  19. I have tried 4 or 5 times to upgrade to 8.1 on my main machine. Error code lead to Nvidia drivers, but when I updated them it still didn't work. Also tried unplugging everything connected--still no go.
