Re: Trying out Start10 - Classic Shell replacement

I've been using it on all my computers for years now. I've only recently stopped using it on Windows 10 and just got used to their menu. Between pinning to the task bar and the tiles on the popup menu, I access my every day apps. But for those that still want the classic menus, I've never had any is...

Re: tricks when buying a new car ?

1. I decide the exact car, color, options, etc... that I want. This will require test driving. One of the two times I step foot in the dealer prior to buying the car. 2. Then I try to find the invoice price of the car. Some resources help you with even prices for the options, but good rule of thumb ...

Re: Got myself a Yubikey 4 for FREE for subscribing to Wired Magazine

I also don't use a password manager. I MIGHT consider one even despite my aversion to all things in "THE CLOUD" (I'd probably use LastPass as they have rock solid security) BUT, I've been using my own home-grown password management system for 20+ years, and with over 740 entries in there,...

Re-Issue SSL cert

Your SSL cert is affected by the whole Symantec mess. You'll need to get it reissued.

Re: READY PLAYER ONE - Official Trailer 1 [HD]

I'm going to try to see it today and pretend I never read the book. I find it encouraging that the author was intimately involved in the screenplay. Think I'm going to see it without the wife, as I will probably watch it several times with her later to catch all the references. Just keep in mind th...

Microcenter has been limiting GPU's to 1 per buyer. They maintain a database of who has bought a GPU. Looks like Newegg is limiting as well to 2 per customer.

Re: John McCain tweets about Trump congradulating Putin

Everyone is all up in arms over this yet Obama did the same thing when Putin won last time. SIGH SIGH? There's a huge difference between how things were back in 2012 with Russia and how things are now, 6 years later. In 2012 there weren't all these accusations of Russia "hacking" (influen...
