Comment Re:As someone who "upgraded" to Win10 (Score 1) 581

1) Dragging a window and moving the mouse cursor up causes it and happens on older versions as well. Perhaps you are experiencing 2) ?
2) I had the same behavior on 8.1 with old video card drivers, especially when using radmin to connect remotely. Try and update all drivers
3) That happens on 8.x as well, disable wake on lan and also your usb keyboard and mouse ability to resume from power in device manager. Get out of a home group if you are in one. This is painful
4) Happens on 8.x as well. On 10 you need to use the custom installer instead of the express one to at least get a shot of keeping your app settings (not all of them)
5) You can defer updates for a few months. Also change its behavior to notify before reboot. Then at least you can defer the reboot for up to a week.

I am on win10, use it only for gaming (desktop) and browsing (laptop), and have only experienced 3) but was able to solve it

Whatever you do keep the classic interface. I don't like the modern javascript version.

I don't understand why if i moderate on a story if i post i lose the moderation. As long as i can't moderate myself this should be fine.

Put more moderation categories, such as -1 wrong

Want sponsored stories? Just label them like android police does.

Simple text ads or non animated images are fine. NO FLASH.

Minimalist design for mobile users.

Maybe auto remove a story if the users label it as dupe. Also, for editors, auto search before approving stories to the front page to avoid dupes (like some bug trackers do before allowing you to create a new bug)

Comment Re:Must be nice to be at a wealthy company (Score 1) 164

These benefits should be at the federal level. In my country Venezuela here's what happens:

You get paid vacations, 15 days per year, one additional day per year worked
Maternity leave is paid and up to 8 months, and can be divided in pre maternity and post maternity. Women mix them up with their vacations to extend the time with their babies.
Companies must provide a daily food allowance benefit (sounds good on paper, but inflation is so high, it doesn't do much)

Every company with at least (20 employees i think) must do this

Comment Re:The movie's not out yet and I'm already tired (Score 1) 126

I don't play online, mostly because internet connections suck in my country and i prefer single player games (i like the stories, for me videogames are movies with gameplay). Having said that, i game without internet connection on my pc, and i guess you can do the same on consoles. You can play new games such as Fallout 4, Witcher 3, Call of duty (campaign) by yourself. And for those single player games that require an online check, well, there are methods to bypass them...
