Windows Fall Creators Update is here: What do you want first – bad news or good news?

shawnfromnh

upgrade

I'm waiting to boot into windows till they fix the bugs in the update then I'll let it update and remain on Linux till then. I've been hearing that the new update is screwing up grub2 on some multiboot systems making it so you have to either reinstall Linux or fix grub before your able to boot back into Linux which is probably done on purpose and if that happens then I'll reinstall but I'll also format over windows and then install a second type of Linux instead since I'm not into OS manufacturers playing games on MY computer.

No, the FCC can't shut down TV stations just because Donald Trump is mad at the news

Re: Hyperbole

Exactly, the swamp and their minions hate him because he's killing their gravy train. Hell Chelsea Clintons best friends business got a DOD contract and they don't have a security clearance, kind of like the Pakistani Awan brothers being the house IT staff for the democrats, so stupid and the liberals just let the enemy walk right in the front door and then paid them to spy on them and transfer terabytes of house info right to Pakistan and some is sure to be top secret. Yeah the liberals are retarded and don't even realize it.

From George Carlin: Political Correctness is just Fascism pretending to be manners.

Hell you want fake. Reddit not only has been adjusting the algorithms for post so The Donald doesn't make the front page or just resetting them altogether. They also made it appear that there is only just over 1/2 million subscribers, but someone went and read the source and found a developer faked that and there are actually over 26 million users. Might be because the head of Reddit is a big liberal cuck and does whatever it takes to make Trump look not as popular as he actually is and there are a lot of black, gay, and latino pedes and we love them all. If the queen knew what the hell was actually going on in her country she'd jail the entire government starting with the London Mayor and then the house of commons.

Re: Actually

It's not them reporting what he doing on twitter, it's them not saying he's done great things with the economy, is building the wall, and they will not even touch a story on Hillary like how she, the FBI, and Obama made it possible for the Russians to buy 20% of the countries uranium and the Clinton foundation received 145 million and I'm sure Obama received payment and is probably the reason he can afford that fancy mansion among other things. CNN and MSNBC and the NY Times, and Washington Post and Huffington and Shareblue and BBC are all pushing fake news. Hell the worst are the Colleges pushing the crap socialism, communism, feminism, and racism crap basically brainwashing kids that are not smart enough to figure out logical reasoning.

Facebook, Twitter slammed for deleting evidence of Russia's US election mischief

shawnfromnh

My guess would be what I read is that the russian ads were almost totally for Hillary and Black Lives Matter and that would be a kink in the liberal narrative. I hope they don't put to much stock in those house reps since steve bannon is pushing to remove all rino's from the house and senate and give a big push to replace the democrats also. Now when the news gets around about the Awan brothers working for the house democrats and then transferring terabytes of information over to Pakistan and then Paul Ryan putting the hush on the incident there will be hell to pay on election time for the house democrats if DWS isn't already in jail for that found laptop that will surely have some evidence wikileaks would drool over having but the fact these guys were given access to top secret material and probably stole a lot if not everything they found. It's going to be an interesting 2018 for sure in the US.

Sole Equifax security worker at fault for failed patch, says former CEO

Maybe it's because the head of security was a music major and why isn't she being blamed is my question. Also Equifax just got a 7.5 million dollar contract with the IRS, how the hell can they be trusted with anything after this last fiasco, this is crap and the IRS person that signed off on this needs to be fired or whatever dept.

Re: Why not fuck off and sort out Brexit instead

Spain nothing , what about that muslim London mayor that won't call the terrorist muslims when everyone knows they are. Is it because he is one and secretly doesn't care that the native population gets hurt at all because they are not muslims. Its all bullshit like in the US the cities that become muslim all want to switch to Sharia Law and everyone that isn't muslim can suck it. Its an invasion and everyone in charge is sticking their head in the sand and acting like its not.

Senators call for '9/11-style' commission on computer voting security

shawnfromnh

Re: Not The Real. Problem

Fox News unlike CNN doesn't stage their news stories by hiring actors to be refugees, dead people, or say they are continents apart while I'm watching a video with both feeds and the same vehicles are going past both reporters seconds aparts because they are in the same parking lot. Yeah and the part where the CNN reporter and executive are tricked into saying the russian story is being pushed for the ratings and they don't believe it and there is absolutely no proof whatsoever.

For someone using the Anonymous mask icon you sure are uninformed about CNN, I remember on facebook when anonymous posted an image hacked from MSNBC 2 weeks before the election showing Hillary with a commanding lead with the number of votes and the percentage of the overall vote, it's amazing that MSNBC could actually predit a couple weeks in advance exact votes and percentages or was it that the election was supposed to be rigged.

Re: Not The Real. Problem

In my state of NH there were almost 2 million out of state voters that never actually moved to or lived in NH during the election and most voted democrat. Hell if the rino's would get off their asses in congress the economy would be humming along right now and taxes due this year would be lower with no punishment for not purchasing overpriced "gouged" insurance policies either. Trumps economic plan is a work of art but to enact it fully the Congress would have to kill a bunch of tax loopholes the rich contributors to their campaigns so love and that is something they will never do since they can't have the rich paying as high a percentage or higher than a regular worker and 12% is not unheard of according to Warren Buffet who once said on TV he was sickened that due to his accountants he actually paid a lower percentage than his secretary and though he would still pay the lower rate because he could he thought it was unfair that the system was set up to let anyone do that.

MPs accuse Amazon and eBay of profiteering from VAT fraudsters

shawnfromnh

I like the idea of a transaction tax. That way people paying for google ads would have to pay the tax before google could run the ads at all in the EU. It's amazing that no one has implimented that kind of tax yet. The internet unlike 10 years ago is pretty mature so the reason to not tax sales on the internet is now moot since it is not in its infansy anymore. Hell the taxes for amazon alone would be huge for any country and it would be easy by just charging the tax to the country the goods are supposed to be delivered to or state. I think this would be a good thing for the brick and mortar stores that actually hire real people to man the stores every day thus improving employment in the retail sector.

Re: An Attempt at Blame Shifting?

If they were not so cheap they could have bought redhat or MS and then had professional penetration testing done to totally avert problems like this in the first place. Though it seems they just went with the cheapest solution to get the job done and just assumed everything would be just fine and just left it at that.

You can bet they won't ban BLM basically the black Klan or LaRasa either because they are not white racist but minority groups and according to the liberals minorities races cannot be racist, total bullshit. Not for the Klan but if they do it to one then they should do it to all of these types of groups.

Re: It's a good job this Kasperksy guy seems a good egg.

Well it was a Democrat from my state that made the accusation and she isn't the sharpest pencil in the box. She just wants to look like she adding to the Russian conspiracy narrative they have been trying to make people believe but it seems only the stupid actually are falling for it as in Hillary and Bernie supporters but most Bernie Sanders supporters can't even describe what socialism really is and the ones that try are just so wrong it isn't funny.

Re: Meh

Same with Staples and Walmart. Their websites have tons of stuff but unless you need printer ink or a phone case or a basic router you are shit out of luck. It's pathetic how little these huge companies stock. Hell if I'm buying online then I'll go amazon and get a decent price because the only reason I'd use Staples or Walmart is because I want something now, not 3 days from now and these stupid companies are becoming more clueless every year. Online is not the future, its for when you can't find it nearby and we will then shop the cheapest and not the online version of the store that will not keep something on the actual shelves.

Problem with MS was they wanted windows on the phone also and pushed that vision onto the desktop users with 8. Major fuckup in their leadership with that flub and Unity just looking at the screenshots made me decide not to try linux for years after. I now have cinnamon mint and I don't even use win10 anymore on my dual boot. Mint is so good and so fast.

Unfortunately this dumb ass bitch is from my state and I'd like to say "I'm sorry" and that all of us from NH are not this retarded.

It's official: Users navigate flat UI designs 22 per cent slower

shawnfromnh

God I hate KDE, it is an abomination to gui's everywhere. No icons on the desktop at all, who was the braniac that thought that was a great idea. I tried KDE for an hour and realized it was one of the most non intuitive interfaces I have ever used. Nothing was where I expected it if I could find it at all. Sure they got the bugs out of a lot of the programs that come with it but then the interface design itself became a bug of enormous complexity when gui's are supposed to simplify the OS for the users this monstrosity went the exact opposite direction. I think hiring a focus group of normal users would be the best money they could ever spend.

Big Tech slams Trump on plan to deport kids

shawnfromnh

Re: Big Tech slams Trump on plan to enforce US immigration law properly because Obama wouldn't...

But Obama was a crappy president who just knew how to give speeches well and kiss every minority group on a pedestal and say screw the majority. Screw the illegals, they lower the overall labor wages in areas and take up housing and their kids cost taxpayers because they all need to go to school and that is thousands per year per student. If they were all gone including the criminal gang members the US would be so much better off financially it isn't even funny when you look at the big picture. As for agriculture just give out green cards and when they don't show up to go home then put out a warrant and bust their asses instead of the Liberals just ignoring the problem till it's many millions and not thousands that have to be rounded up.

We're going to lose all this money BILLIONS in GDP. OMG so you're not going to hire new people to those positions when your workers are deported. That's a bold move leaving that important position empty and losing all that money. These liberal companies spout such bullshit its unbelievable like the Social Security won't be made up by their replacements or the taxes. Liberals here in the US sure love to lie or tell huge half truths, sure that money would go missing if no one else got hired but I seriously doubt that'll happen if it'll cost these tech companies money. Though they will be empty positions for a while since companies hire asshole companies to go over applications/resumes for them and those companies take their sweet time. If these companies actually need these positions so much as they claim then they'll fill them within the month but I think they're full of shit myself and just want to make a statement to make Trump look bad but he just donated in his own cash a million to hurricane victims and the networks are making it look like he's up to something but this is normal behavior for him by just looking at his past. I love how companies just think they can get into politics and they won't lose one conservative customer even though a few companies can now say they lost a lot of business for running their stupid yaps about something they should just STFU about.

Re: "The DoJ will not be allowed to share the information with any other government agency"

Trump supporters are relatively nonviolent, it's antifa and black lives matter that are funded through Soros and his Son that are the violent ones and far left. We don't need anarchist but people to get off the welfare and to work because they are breaking the country. Hell kids today have no idea what life was like 40 years ago and how easy they have it, hell most are better off than someone a 100 years ago that was middle class but they are so lazy and envious of everyone that has worked hard that they won't even try unless they make like 15 dollars an hour at a mcjob which is nuts. Hell a lot won't even quit smoking pot long enough to even be able to get a real job, morons. The right are workers and the left are whiney bums buts it's always been that way. Hell I was a democrat up until Obama's second term and then I said screw this bullshit I'm voting for someone which I can trust a little.

Re: @AC "The DoJ will not be allowed to share the information with any other government agency"

No, it wasn't fake news. If it was you would have seen it on CNN or MSNBC, of Obama doing whatever it took to get Hillary elected and even with the election rigged and the Media paid off to lie about everything Trump, she still lost because working Americans unlike democrats can only be bullshit so long before they decide the DNC and all their kind could care less and screw them we want our country back so we elected the non politician that is actually trying to keep his promises though because of a few higher up republicans "McCain for one" are trying to trip him up until of course election time when these traitors will all be tossed out on their asses since the people are watching now.

Re: Dictatorship like by U.S Government

Finally a comment that I agree with that is not giving the PC liberal scumbags a free ride and put some of these morons and hopefully antifa scum into jail. The Democrats have been dragging this country down with trying to give a free ride to anyone and driving the country into the poorhouse further and driving more business overseas with their unbelievable trade treaties that give away jobs to the 3rd world that use labor like slaves. Hell I was guessing the people here would be more conservative since the EU treaties have made it easy to outsource high paying tech jobs and Brexit just made my day seeing that the people in the UK haven't been brainwashed by this PC bullshit like the US has.

Re: I have an easier solution.

Good to have someone blind here that has the balls that people that can see don't. As in trying out Linux, good for you and keep up the higher learning because I just moved to Linux and it is a learning curve but Windows is boring as hell and they keep taking away functions in the name of usability and hamstringing their power users to make an OS only a moron could love. God I am starting to love Linux and its been years since I've had to actually learn something to run an OS since they keep dumbing down Windows or screwing it up as in Me, Vista, and 8 with the tiles so it would be usable on a phone, who the hell thought that PC owners actually gave a good shit about someones phone experience or that they wouldn't give a shit that their desktop space was overtaken by a bunch of huge tiles so they had less room to save a file or to have more programs by far with tiny icons. MS are becoming morons more and more since Gates has left, sure Gates was underhanded in his marketing of Windows but he sure knew what people needed and what they didn't for the average user and now it seems they have forgotten that simple concept and are working more to satisfy the DMCA lawyers than the users that are actually paying for and using their product. Big Rant but some things lately about tech companies have been pissing me off.

Re: Historical context of speculating about human biology

He did so because he thought that even though they are all supposed to be equal and such that certain genders and races got preferential treatment as in training and mentors which put white men on unequal or dare I say it "sixist/racist" actions by google by discriminating against them by giving others an unfair advantage even though every one is soooooo equally skilled which to me means no one needs or deserves special treatment unless they are not good enough. Seems like this discrimination that abounds in colleges is also alive and well in Google and probably most of Silicon Valley.

There is no alt right. Its just a name the liberal rags and MSM gave to conservatives because it made it easier for their readers to hate them instead of calling them Workers or the Working Class conservatives.

500 MEELLION PCs still run Windows XP. How did we get here?

Re: XP? Pah!

My old shop closed about a year and a half ago and the CNC multihead drill/routing machines were all DOS running Norton Commander "I believe", and then run into the controllers from the early 80's that still had chromatic screens and the old paper tape feeders on them still but the things were still running decades later till the day the shop doors closed. Hell the newest machine the V Score machine was running Windows98SE and that had more problems than the DOS machines that from time to time just had the hard drives die from old age.

Re: I'm a MSFT Fan But.....

It's not so much the touch itself was a bad idea. I don't like putting my hand up onto a monitor because it's tiring and there's finger prints and such. A track pad like on the laptops just suck altogether since they are just a pain in the butt.

Now what MS could have done as an option would have like on Xbox gesture type design. Like a trackpad but you don't touch it you just have a small mousepad sized device connected wirelessly into your usb and have it so it can track your finger on xyz axis so you move back and forth front to back for movement and down to select. Sure you'd need a keyboard for doing anything business related since touching the keys just gives a more confident feeling yours fingers are aligned while typing and getting contact.

Basically the idea of making touchscreens seems like an expensive and a pain in the ass way of implementing touch when an easier on the arm way of using gesture tech on a desktop pad like the xbox has for games seems like a better experience for the users of a desktop systems.

Lenovo to ship all new PCs with Start Menu replacement

shawnfromnh

Re: Pokki...? Seriously?

That's the problem with MS's thinking. They made Windows 8 for touch screens and tablets and the fact is I don't want a touch screen and like the mouse since a touch screen would kill my shoulders after an hour or 2.

They really have to realize that a lot of people could care less about tablets or touchscreens and just want a regular cheap monitor and a mouse and a startmenu and a desktop and don't want to use paid apps and would prefer freeware downloaded from somewhere beside the MS store.

My boss uses Windows 7 and will probably be using it till 2025 and on the same PC if he has his way since he can't afford and doesn't care about every new OS. If MS listened to their customers they'd only have a new full version every 8 years or so which is the time it takes to get the bugs out from the OS that replaces the good OS as in XP right to 7 or 98 right to XP, can't wait for Windows 9 to fix all the crap no one wants or needs in Windows 8 or maybe Linux will make a big jump by then and be so user compatible no one would consider buying MS unless they've never heard of Linux.

More brutal PC numbers from Dell as revenues stay flat, profits sink

My favorite with Dells and other pre built PC's is no OS disk or some lame restore disk and all the crap that comes with the systems. They also use hardware that requires a special driver you have to download off the Dell website and burn to disk since a normal windows disk does have the driver for this extra low end hardware they add to their cheap specialty made motherboards. Dell went from originally we'll build your PC for you to we'll build an overpriced crappy PC for you.

BOFH: Don't be afraid - we won't hurt your delicate, flimsy inkjet printer

Re: That's why they put WEEE recycling symbols on them

I was thinking the entire time reading this. Why doesn't some company make a real printer in the UK/USA with real steel and no cartridges and charge for the printer and not the ink? Make something that'll last a decade and isn't loaded down with a ton of useless crap. You just send it over the information by cable or wireless and it prints exactly what you send it in the same shade and size sent to it.

It seems like a company could make a killing when people realize they have the best basic printer in the world that will cost almost nothing to run and almost never breaks down.
