  1. Windows 10

    For those OCD about disk space, OEM drivers can generate very large dump files. They typically hang around until one performs the next disk cleanup- which hopefully purges them.

    In a series of Philosophical Essays published many years ago, Ogilvie gives some definitions of human knowledge, the following of which he considers “least obnoxious to comprehension:”—
  3. Bethesda.net Discussion

    Breaking up with Steam? Thumbs up for that. Then they could do so much better with the launcher by making it an ini configurator for both the game and kit as well as an updater. And make available APIs for displaying stats for fun stuff like this.
  4. Bethesda.net Discussion

    It uses so much stuff.
  5. Beware of Email Scams

    Haven't received any emails, probably due to the ISPs aggressive spam filtering- but Pwned, yes. Just curious all the same if anyone has been informed by that site their email hasn't been Pwned, and to its subscription rate.
  6. Happy Birthday Amadaun!

    Have a great day!
  7. Happy Birthday Sue!

    Many happy returns on the day and may the birthday gods smile down on you!

    @Burt Reynolds: RIP They did an amazing promo for the rookie HAWK TV show- Video unavailable it seems. Following snippet is in better res: But he was lucky enough later on to score some really good roles in some great movies!

    Well, was considering expanding on the concept of "Video Unavailable, the Movie"- but that has been taken- at least partially: They loved it over at Rotten.

    Would it be the actual video? Heaps of "video unavailable" to choose from: Or they could give us a test pattern or something to jazz it up: Headache!

    Political turmoil over here- here's the latest:

    You must be here. Does it make a sound?

    Ahm- the picture of it is on a dual carriageway highway? Doing 20 km/h and a helmet is required? No windows fitted for obvious reasons - including weight. Truly amazing.
  14. Feedback thread

    It's always done that- all that we are seeing extra is the "not secure."
  15. What A LogiMess!

    Another little insight into this comes from hibernating with the keyboard, and then straight-way resuming- where there's no problem at all and the system is restored very quickly. That is when the volatile memory isn't compromised. Think it's good for up to a minute (at best) but this one will not be testing for any closer estimates!
  16. What A LogiMess!

    This rig came with a Logitech gaming mouse and keyboard as part of a gaming bundle- some time ago now, but the teething problems associated with their driver have all but turned into deep sockets! Firstly, a major inconvenience is that any native system hibernate key function is unavailable on the keyboard running only on keyboard.sys until a hibernate function macro is manually added through the Logitech driver UI interface. Which also means you have to launch the driver manually- manually because for some daft reason it never has and never will run properly when configured to run after Userinit. Now having the driver in the background is a risky business because it does a lot of weird and not so wonderful things- like checking your files. For example, this was logged from Process Monitor: LCore.exe 5396 QueryNameInformationFile C:..myexefile.. BUFFER OVERFLOW Yea, just copying any old file in explorer- so what's LCore doing with it- and why the Buffer overflow? Also, pressing the G2 function key always produces an endless series of these characters until G2 is pressed again: wdwwdw w wwwwwwwwwwwddwdwf wddwwwwwwddwdd wwddd wddwwwwwdddddwwwwwwwwdwdwwwddddddw wddwwwwwww w wwwwddddwwww wwww wwdw wwwweeww wwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwww zzz wwwww ff zz zz wwwwwwwww z zz s f t w zzz www wwwwww w qqqqqw w z zz t w f ww wwwwf wwwwww w www wwwwf wf f f f wwwwwwwwwwwwwqwwwwddddwdddddwsf s zzz s w wwwww w wdwwdw w wwwwwwwwwwwddwdwf wddwwwwwwddwdd wwddd wddwwwwwdddddwwwwwwwwdwdwwwddddddw wwddwwwwwww w wwwwddddwwww wwww wwdw wwwweeww wwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwww zzz wwwww ff zz zz wwwwwwwww z zz s f t w zzz www wwwwww w qqqqqw w z zz t w f ww wwwwf wwwwww w www wwwwf wf f f f wwwwwwwwwwwwwqwwwwddddwdddddwsf s zzz s w wwwww w As some of these issues were reported before the site was revamped to eharmony, one would hope the old posts are still accessible. But nothing- neither at the site- or the community, so that's efficent customer service. And could the driver also be causing odd things like the unavailable process handle and the shell interface blown out of the water (See the second post to this)?
  17. Happy Birthday Schtearn!

    Thanks guys, it's always wonderful out here in the boonies- except for the drought and the bush fires close by. And the smoke: Image courtesy of the local rag which is, like many of us, going broke.
  18. Server issue for a few sites

    @Leo, there might be an issue. Cleared the cache & all the cookies for those sites? Even a different browser? Other than that, your router may be hacked. Reset it for a new IP.
  19. Feedback thread

    Been doing that for the last five years- at least- or as far as these memory banks have stored it.

  22. Games on Sale

    Why would they sell games which are technically unplayable? For newer rigs is it a timing thing in the game engine or an OS/architecture issue perhaps addressed by running in a VM (think scummvm-like )
  23. I consider of getting a M.2 SSD

    Yes. Still suspect to the same errors when approaching the end of their life cycle.
