      New Theme Set Up   11/14/2017

      We have a new theme created by Vincent that's now available to everyone. It has been set as the default theme, so everyone should see it when you refresh the page. If you still aren't seeing it, you can select it from the Theme drop-down at the bottom of the page. It's called Assimilation. Thanks Vincent. Awesome looking theme!

    Just dug out a mighty tome of history: "English As She Is Taught: Genuine Answers To Examination Questions In Our Public Schools",1887 Here are some astronomical pearls that may assist us: Beautiful!

    The Undead and Lycanthropes (along with the rest of us) will not want to be on Mars when Phobos does the final circuit. But can that be changed?

    Some of us are Sons of the Moon. Was that an oversight by Beth?- if you are a werewolf, you won't be attacked by wolves, therefore you can have them as pets!

    Blender's the go! And there's plugins galore, some are paid, some are free. I'd be happy to donate as well- some sites (I think ISS do) have a Donate Hall_of_Fame so that if you are from one of those orgs the forum moderators will roll out the -er- heshan cloth.

    Spoke to the reseller of Crucial here- he seems to think 2 8gb sticks are the best value- and if the FSB expects less, they will clock down. It sounds like he knows what he's talking about, so probably will go with that. It means, however, I'll have two spare, old, but perfectly good DIMMS going begging.

    For that money I'd expect it to be home delivered in a chauffered limousine with 12 dancing girls wearing nothing but a smile! And the basic implements of celebration thrown in for good measure!
  7. What are you listening to right now?

    Yeah. Symphonic Black Metal nicely describes it. Allmusic has a precis. On that page is a list of other genres- a few of them quite new!

    It's waiting at the depot to be collected. Bit nary about actually doing it if that's all the info there is. Does Android being Linux Based mean that whatever runs on Android will run on Ubuntu- and vice versa? Apt-get install libreoffice – For LibreOffice Apt-get install iceweasel – For Firefox Apt-get install idle – For Python Idle Apt-get install gimp – For GIMP Apt-get install nautilus-dropbox – For DropBox Apt-get install software-center – For an ‘app store’, although this wouldn’t run on my distro The last one is a worry. But at least it gives me a chance to sample firefox- although it's so easy with Chrome. Now if all those settings and favs can be ported from the cloud... ... Looking at upgrading the memory on this machine. It's an old but beautiful Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H. The memory will have to be DDR3 1333 MHz- the 1600 might be a little too out there. Looking at 16gb total. If I keep the two 4 GBs then it would expect another 4 of the same in. A lot cheaper than getting 2 X 8 GB new, but then if 4 X 4 new DDR is cheaper than 2 X 8 then that's preferred. (But more parts more errors) Will be toddling off to the big smoke to pick some up soon. Any particular flavours appeal?
  9. Windows 10

    Yeah. IDK, some machines have their sensitivities that's for sure. There's been no rush on the N++ team for that issue as per date of the SO post, as well as other annoyances. :(

    malcom Young from AC/DC passed away a day ago. That band ROCKED! Edit: More info here. (Missed that)

    Ah, Dallas! The only thing that burned off these dendrites was the reflective glass on the 1980s Dallas skyline in the intro. Glassley!!! But cool inside, no doubt, at least until the Hag strides in through the foyer!
  12. Windows 10

    Yes! Configuring N++ to edit text files- and then editing them from the context menu. Suspect it's a timing issue with the updated registry setting. When explorer crashes for different reasons/actions it can mess up/reset the desktop as well!
  13. Windows 10

    Got a few hiccups in the shell interface of explorer: SFC didn't find any problems, so DUI70 is good. Just going to have to live with it for the time being. Note to self: Run Drivecleanup sometime.

    I'll be keeping an eye out for coming specials on Ob at GOG. Something never agreed with the drive lettering and the DVD at_all_well when running it with ENBoost, (in hindsight a chuckle- except it was true!)
