Status Updates posted by thanatos

  1. Just saw on Facebook that Trade-N-Games store was robbed - 100K of games out of his safe.  Not sure what subforum would be good for posting a heads up.

      I thought he kept everything at the store because he could insure it all as inventory.  As technically it is.

      @Thanos: Yes, from the online videos he's done he has stuff WAY over insured versus actual salable value. Monetarily he should be fine. Mentally though, I myself don't think I could get over such an invasion. I'd need to at least move. I hope all goes as well as possible for Jason. I also hope they catch the bastard(s) who robbed him.

      Too bad they were all stored in one location. Especially being small items.

  3. Hey, I messaged you and am waiting for important information!

     

    What is happening here with all the weird status updates?  It reads like my gmail spam folder.  But much less explicit.

      I think people are confusing the ability to add public messages on other members' feeds with sending them private messages.  One would think they'd stop after seeing what was supposed to be a private message appearing in the status updates, but apparently not.

      I still have not heard anything back, it is pissing me off.

      I don't think they look at the main forum page, so they don't even know it's happening. They just take a dump in the middle of the floor and walk away. If you want to PM somebody, send them an actual PM.

  4. I hate Windows 10 so much as well as all the modern website UX.  I may have to figure out how to be an electrician or something to get out of IT, because in 10 years I won't be able to stand using computers anymore.

      Do a bit of googling, my Win10 Pro, looks like Classic Windows, with start bar and no bullshit on the desktop.

    2. thanatos

      It's not the cosmetic stuff, I've figured that all out.  It's how it will re-enable services and such that I told it to disable.  Or ones that it won't let you disable without super 3rd party hacks.  Not to mention all the telemetry.

      It's my damn PC, stop changing what I want it to do!

      It takes a lot of digging, to find all the shit they hid.  I agree, it sucks.  Luckily, my monster PC was configured by security IT services, from my company, creepy shit they can do with it remotely, fully secure.  Took me forever to do half of it, to my own machines.  Still dual booting Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 10 Pro, on my own shit.  Some drivers don't work on 10.

  5. Tried to ask my dermatoligist why there seems to be a huge rash of necrobumps lately.

  11. And GOT is over. What a journey. The battle between Snape, Han, Greedo, and Jar-Jar was amazing.

  12. Realized it's finally time for a new basement MAME PC when I had to change the motherboard battery. In all my years I have never used a PC long enough to have to do that.

  13. My favorite commenters in TV topics on the internet are the people that say "We haven't had a TV in 10+ years!" Well, why are you wasting your non-TV time in this topic?

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      TV + My DVR = True Happiness! I'm through ads w/ a button click and yesterday I actually Wanted to see a couple haha...One for a movie and one for a weedwhacker ;) And TV doesn't target ads to me...I mostly just skip'em!

    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Plus commercials are part of it,... like when ya watch old shows off of VHS, seeing ads from the '80's is something you don't skip (Strangely enough). But I do wanna kick My Pillow guy in the head!

      @Agamon there are 2 tiers for CBS All Access, which I've subscribed to for watching Star Trek Discovery. For $6/month you can watch stuff with ads, for $10/month there are no ads. I figured if I'm going to give them money, I might as well not see the ads.

       

      @Kaeru I don't care about March Madness either! :-D

  18. If you ask me to take a survey and say anything other than perfect is a fail, then your survey is pointless.

    1. godslabrat

      godslabrat

      And if the survey has no method of verification, you need to understand that PEOPLE LIE, especially to other people holding clipboards.

      If you don't give the highest rating, you are being negative and negativity is considered bullying and bullying can result in a fine or jail time. Welcome to the future.

  19. Work is changing from Skype to Teams. Well, so is Microsoft. What a horrible POFS. Yes. The extra "F" is required.

    1. save2600

      save2600

      We know this happens time and time again, but why does once 'good' software implode on itself before long? Changes made for the sake of changes until the experience (UI and performance typically) becomes totally worthless. I'm having difficulty right now trying to think of major pieces of software that this hasn't happened to. WTF?

    2. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      Yikes. We are in the MS cloud so it's probably just a matter of time for us. I thought Teams was a whole different product though? More like Slack than Skype.

    3. xucaen

      xucaen

      same here, skype is going away and teams is in. Teams is integrated with Sharepoint, whihc I think actually confuses some of our employees..

      That's hilarious. The dude ought to post better pics if he wants that much. Looks like he took those pics with a circa 2002 flip phone. Crappy pics hide flaws. Plus the all CAPS is douchey. He probably has a mullet.

  23. Someone here announced their Steam game a few months ago, but I can't find it here and forgot to add it to my wishlist. Anyone have the name? Doing my winter sale shopping.
