And what is Aleppo?
incredible you figured out all that.
too bad it's not scriptable.
good job. thanks.
The scripting part is interesting in a curious way. To the extent that I must "barehand" everything, that is the extent to which I am forced to actually look at what's been done, what's been left, what's been destroyed, and as time goes on, I discover that this stuff changes in ways both obvious and subtle. So I guess it's like exercise. Who the fuck likes doing pushups? Nobody. But they're good for you, and if you want to stay healthy into your elder years, you'll do what's good for you.
So I hatchet away, and every single time it's a weency bit different, and I stay in shape that way.
I certainly do not recommend that as a method for everybody, or even anybody, but for me, yeah, it works out pretty good in the end.
I'm curious, did you use to make this many changes to previous versions of Windows or it's the first time you've had to make many changes to get a system like you like it?
I've always had multiple test boxes laying around, with multiple hard drives to swap back and forth, and tearing Windows up, just to see what would happen, has always been kind of fun.
That said, it's the goddamned telemetry and all the rest of it that really got me going, and just as soon as I installed my first copy of 10 a year ago, I was very interested in first discovering, and then attacking, and then checking to see if the patient was still breathing or not.
The miscellaneous stuff like the Taskbar, and Desktop Icons, and all of that end of it is stuff I've been doing for a long time, attempting to trim away the bullshit and get the machine more responsive. Windows 8 was my first foray into nuking tiles and forcing a "normal" look to things, but 10 is a whole different level of crap to deal with.
So part of the answer is yes, and part of the answer is no.

Your reply was solid. A bit vulgar, but on point. Don't hide behind the anonymous coward uid next time.
There's plenty of jobs for experienced people with solid engineering skills. It's harder to get into this industry now than 15-20 years ago, but if you're contributing to open source, attending meetups and have decent soft skills you can still get in to the industry just fine. The market has grown; the influx of new "engineers" is much larger, which just means there's more competition, but there's plenty of jobs out there make no mistake about that.
> So, pardon my ignorance, but why the fuck do you guys buy buggy software? You know the shit's got bugs in it. Wait. Don't buy it. Yet, still, loads of people pre-order or buy on release day
Most of what you're seeing online is just a bunch of dramatic asshats. I've played most of the "next gen" releases at or shortly after they launched. The only game that was seriously buggy was assassins creed unity. Outside of that most games work perfectly fine on launch day.
I had around 600 or so DVDs and blurays when we switched to all digital. I ripped them myself, but it was a long and painful process! If there was some service I'd do that in a heartbeat.
I stopped paying for cable about 8 years ago. I switched to Netflix for dvds and buying a season pass on iTunes 4-6 times a year. Not long after I was able to get netflix streaming, and a few years ago amazon prime. More recently we added HBO now. This itunes/netflix/hbo arrangement is still how I consume most of my movies and tv today.
My setup includes a 6tb hdd connected to my router that serves as my iTunes library on my desktop for "legacy media" ( i.e. ripped dvds that all sit in the attic now ). Out of the three rooms with tv's in the house two of them have xbox ones with an apple tv plugged into the hdmi in, the third tv only has the apple tv. All movies and tv shows from the past 5-6 years are all digital and recently with games we switched to all digital starting with steam and then later switching to digital on console with the xb one.
Just opened the app. I see about six uberx cars near me right now. Some strike...
Everything seemed fairly normal, though I don't buy cars often and I was paying cash, so my experience and idea of normal might be off a bit. Sales dude joked about it not being a diesel we laughed for a second and that was about it. I spent over 12 hours test driving cars from a bunch of different manufactures that day and ended up with a Passat, which I was happy with. Comparatively it's a nice car, the fit and finish on the interior is pretty superior and it handled well on some pretty rough roads.
I'd say Volkswagon can count on the short term memory of the buying public.
Yup. I bought one this weekend.
