^This.

Exactly this is what's wrong with Windows 8.1. I really don't care about Modern UI, I can live with it or there are alternatives, but the weird selection of changed/removed features is what really bugs me about Windows 8.1.

Also, it seems you don't have to registry hack to switch between Public and Private networks, but the interface to do so is hardly intuitive.

the convenience of not having to drive yourself or pay attention to the road, coupled with the convenience of because able to go directly from point A to point B at your convenience. I too would opt for this convenience if it was a mature enough technology.

This post needs more convenience.

This is purely anecdotal (as are all the other comments on here, tbh) but I've been gaming on 8.1 since it came out and have had absolutely no issues whatsoever. If anything it's better than before.

Maybe the fact that I have a Logitech gaming mouse with its own special software and drivers helps? I always turn off Windows' control of the mouse drivers in the Logitech panel and set it up in there, which means I get a consistent feel, even across reinstalls.

Yep, I've used Pale Moon for quite a while now. It's great to have a properly optimized 64-bit Firefox build on Windows. Moonchild (the dev) is generally very responsive on the forums and quick to fix bugs.

I use 13 popular Firefox Add-ons and they all work absolutely fine in Pale Moon. I'd recommend it.

Dude, you're Australian. You're lucky to have some pretty strong consumer protection law on the books.

According to my Aussie friend if you have a problem with Telstra, or any other Aussie telecoms company, you contact the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman and your problem will almost always get sorted quickly. He's had to call them when Telstra have dragged their feet fixing his Internet connection. After he complained to the Ombudsman, Telstra were calling HIM back and apologising, and had a team out in his neighbourhood fixing the problem the next day.
