    Heck froze over

    Same here, just not on that laptop, as it won't boot from usb. * Let me clarify, used dvd to upgrade as a check to see if bad iso. Clean install, no go. Upgrade, go.

    Heck froze over

    I did have one big issue with one machine. I pulled the win7 drive out of an old laptop, and stuck a blank, spare, ssd in it. ( give it some life, maybe ) Laptop was fine with the drive in bios, it supports ahci apparently. I tried installing official 1809 iso from dvd, since this one can't...

    Heck froze over

    Well, I finally bit the bullet and 'upgraded' to Win10. And not just once.. All the machines at work, at home, couple of friends' rigs...upgrade overdose I'd say. :doh: Really hated it when it first came out, doesn't seem so bad now. Wide variety of hardware configs, mostly a smooth...

    Inkscape graphic software

    Here's what I believe you're looking for. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=inkscape+change+layout+size#kpvalbx=1 ( Plus the guy has an...interesting...voice ) * I don't use inkscape, but I do use Corel and Adobe daily. I imagine it's very similar.

    Printing disabled on some emails?

    Ah, so some email clients do have control over printing on the receiver's end. Good to know. Thanks all.

    Printing disabled on some emails?

    While this isn't a huge issue, it's a real pita when you're busy... We have Windows 7 computers at work. We use Windows Live Mail for our email client. 99.9% of our emails print. Just right click the mail, select print, select which printer, done. And then theres those other ones.. Right...

    Decent PC game controller?

    I use a wired PDP Xbox1 knockoff. The black one. Since I still run Win7, I had to jump through a few hoops to get drivers installed, but nothing overly crazy. ( Just MS shenanigans ) Played through the entirety of the Witcher 2 and 3 with it after I got it, and it didn't skip a beat. Still...

    Windows 10 "photos" ram/cpu use normal?

    Yes. I don't have OCD, but I act like it when it comes to wasteful 'stuff' running on my rig(s). Still on 7 for my home machine, and all the ones at work. Will have to take the plunge sooner or later...:doh:

    If you have a uplay account change your passwords immediately

    Thanks for the heads-up. That site tells me some compromises of sites that I was already aware of, but that only confirms it's accuracy. Definitely handy. Cheers.

    FYI - PNY Blower model reference GTX 1070

    This is one of the things I've always liked about this site. ( yeah, I still read more than talk ) Love the reviews, but general hardware talk from members is excellent. Last blower style card I had ( still have, in an older Athlon rig, still going ) was an Asus 9800Gt ultimate. The review here...

    Odd Mouse/Keyboard lighting issue

    Likely a bios setting to power on from usb or other device.

    (Solved) Nvidia GeForce Experience?

    Fastest shortcut should be Right click on desktop, AMD or Nvidia.

    Old Floppy and ZIP Disk

    The embroidery industry still uses floppy drives in their machines, and likely will for quite some time yet. They would be the customer you're seeking.

    R9 290x woes

    Ruling out something like bad power or other hardware issue, It sounds like issues I had with an older Nvidia card. It seemed every other driver would literally make the card act like it was failing. As above, try a few different drivers. Also, you likely did already, but check your DirectX, C...
