Re: It's getting to be about that time...

I play games, I buy games, I do not know nor care about any professional gamers.

People like me are a major and targeted games market.

But I am not a member of "pcmasterrace" as I use a console. PCMR assume this makes my opinion invalid, but explain the huge sales of console games, and try to ignore the best works from console games developers.

We have owners of all 3 major ecosystems at work, 2 of which have many games exclusive to themselves, and not to be seen on PC.

Games developers write games for whatever OS the console developers use.

Re: switching to linux

Everyone keeps on about games only running on Windows.

What about consoles, apart from MS ones (and the Dreamcast), none run Windows.

Sony use BSD and there are many games for Playstation, including a game mentioned elsewhere, Fallout 4.

BSD is a Unix clone, like Linux.

Re: Windows 10 not private.

Actually I am considering contacting ElReg over this but I do not want to cause any lost work.

But they are not private, and any they have difficulty with get passed out to contracters to work out what is said.

I did a search for the company name who does it and it comes up with people moaning about transcribing porn requests.

So which users have been saying?

"how do I open windows services?"

"Cortina"

Yes the speech recognition is public and I have heard some.

Will 52 ESR continue working?

My home PC (which hit 10 years old this year) runs XP.

AS to nuking from orbit, anything post 7 needs it, XP, 2000, and 7 were MSs high points.

Anyway if an executable is WIN32 it should run on any 64 bit or 32 bit version of Windows.

BTW my home PC has an alternate boot of Linux Mint come that day when XP is unusable.

A superb film

Seen it a few times, currently own the Blu Ray ultimate cut, sold the really bad transfer DVD.

Imagry great, music great, acting excellent, direction and cinematography superb.

If the sequel is half as good, it will be great.

Very strange comment about Destiny 2 but every player I have come across has ported their Destiny characters across.

I do not know of anyone after the PC version.

Everyone I know is on the PS4 or XB1.

Oh and they do pay a % to MS and Sony as well.

Some companies will need to get ready for litigation.

Especially companies like Disney Pixar.

It seems there are a lot of adult obsessives, according to a Disney fan quite a few adults pay for advance tickets to hug people dressed up as characters.

They would pay a fortune for a doll like the Frozen princesses, or even the snowman (with snowballs).

Re: What happened to all the older search engines?

Yes but it used to be +

More to the point why does it think that not including my search term is more relevant?

Also

20 pages of shopping sites, then some real sites.

I am sure there is less usefull content on the internet now.
