Most of the rest of the developed world and a decent chunk of the less developed world have better, cheaper broadband than the US. So actually a lot of people do have great internet. You just happen to live in a country that is unwilling to catch up to the rest of the world in that regard.
Say that when you have annoying physical symptoms associated with exposure to an allergen.

Now, it is true that there are pre-activated keys for OEMs disks like HP, Dell, etc.. At least for Windows 7 it was like that. They have so called SLP Keys (System Locked Pre-Installation Key) and they are not the same as the one printed on your Windows 7 machine. SLP keys only work on a certain range of machines, but also have the advantage as working like generic OEM DVDs. I've had this case where a Windows Vista machine (Vista Key sticker) from Dell and I used the a Windows 7 Dell OEM disk, and
Given that from Windows 8 on the licenses are embedded in the firmware, this is over.
Personally, I think reinstalling from scratch is always the right option. With decrapifying you might miss something, and if you're routined, you have a reinstallation done rather quickly. If you stick with big brand machines, getting drivers is no Herculean task any more. Back in the day, oh, yes, I remember... Hard to find, need to use shady places, take drivers from different machines and try to see whether they work. Today, it's "go to manufacturer website", download what is *missing* and use what Windows gives you as default drivers for all the rest, with the notable exception of the graphics card.
As a matter of fact, this can be done with Win 8(.1) too these days, even though I only did once: The laptop I am typing this on. Came with OEM Win 8, but I didn't want to use it, so I installed Ubuntu without making a backup of anything. Now, in order to secure the 10 license, I did a dd of the disk, installed Win 8 from the installation media I got from Microsoft and then upgraded to 10. After that, I did a dd in order to restore it to the original configuration. This way, should I want to give it away or sell it in a few years, I can give the future owner what they might want: Windows 10.
To get back to my point: Windows now provides usable installation media. No need for restore media, or hoping you find a OEM disk that works with your machine and key... There is now an official way, and that is the only positive thing that Windows 10 brought us.
Your Envy can be reinstalled from scratch if you are inclined to do so. Get the ISO here. Now, my personal opinion is that you're better off with staying with Linux, but don't kid yourself. You *can* have a clean Windows installation these days.
Thanks - appreciate it.
was it difficult to set up play on the fire? Does that give you hangouts, etc.?
My son's Nexus 7 just died and I've been considering a Fire to replace it but he uses hangouts to talk to his friends a lot.
There's an Ag101 pdf from the Department of Agriculture that cites figures saying farmland is lost to development. Before jumping to the conclusion that deforestation is caused primarily by anti-gmo liberals, you should take a look at all the wood your fat, gluttonous Republican friends require for toilet paper and McMansions. Not to mention exotic, expensive wood furniture that fuels Amazon rainforest clearing.
Fire that person. Repubs love to fire ppl. Why are you giving this guy a free pass?
The buck don't stop here!
Pretty much this. I don't understand why something that is already a cultural phenomenon world wide - watching people compete - is a mystery just because computers are involved.
Just logging in - I can read the site fine. Although it may be like a few have mentioned above - at the moment I can log in.
The myth that gas engines don't last long is alive in Europe. I am often confronted with unbelief when I tell them how old my car is an how much kilometres it has, My mechanic told me they once got the job to do a rebuild of an Audi RS4 engine (obviously, that's gas) and it turned out that the wear of the engine was pretty much negligible at over 400000km.
In every non-trivial program there is at least one bug.
