    Post Your Desktop

    Hello. Quite simple, take a picture, upload it, and show us your desktop. If you don't know how, all you have to do is ALT + PRT SCRN and paste into your favourite image manipulation program. Feel free to add an explanation about your desktop if you wish. If you need a reliable image host, I would suggest http://xs.to. They allow images up to 2.5MB and I've never had a bandwidth problem with them. Anyway, here is my desktop. I enjoy being a minimalist. Please note the recycling bin and its awesomeness.

    Question about Windows operating system

    Take Dae314's advice. If you absolutely need to disable Aero in Windows 8 you can rename \Windows\Resource but as Dae314 pointed out the explorer requires it so you'll have to find another interface with which to navigate your computer.
  5. Oh boy. Desktop 64GB Internal SSD (full) 2TB Internal HDD (mostly full) Laptop 350GB Internal SSD (Half full, mostly different OSes) 750GB Internal HDD (mostly empty) 3TB External HDD (mostly empty) 2TB External HDD (full) 16GB Flash Drive (broken? why do I have this.) 8GB Flash Drive (Linux Live "Disc") 3 x 2GB Flash Drives (Variable) 8GB SD Card (Phone) (half full) Bonus: ~100GB backed up in DVDs 2GB Dropbox (unneeded?) 50GB Box (1GB used?) 5 x 15GB Gmail accounts "Unlimited" Webhost (500MB used?) Kudos to the file server guys. If only I had a living situation in which this such a thing was practical. The "un"fortunate side is that internet speeds are about to go supernova, coupled with H.265, may significantly decrease the need to ever backup movies, shows, etc. But this might be a good thing.

    Will you be upgrading to Win 8

    Agreed. After removing metro and adding something like a start menu, it's actually quite nice. Some GUIs are overly complicated with too many options visible by default (explorer). Some things are made all too complicated (it takes approximately thirty clicks to allow yourself to edit [or edit permissions] of system files through explorer). Other GUIs are rather nice, like the sleek black bar that comes off the side, and the file transfer interface. In general, getting around is faster than in other Windows versions once you get used to it. I've got it to cold boot in 13 seconds (Win 7 does it slightly faster in 12), plus Win 8 has a superfuous "lock" screen before you enter your user info.

    Super Fast Internet At Hotel..your internet speed

    [Please measure data transfer in Mb/s and data storage in MB. A mb/s is a milibit per second, Mbitps is megabit picosecond. Sankyuu...] The average around here is 25Mbps, but 100Mbps is finally available in some places. I have seen such speeds sustained. It's very nice, and not really expensive, especially if one were to split the expense between roommates or colleagues. However, >1Mb/s upload speeds remain extremely expensive (but also come with static IPs, and access to ports, etc.)

    Things to do when depressed? Also rules of engagement?

    Everything matters. But, I assure you, however awful your experience.... eventually you come to accept that both the duration of the experience and its end are two of the best things to ever happen to you. To combat depression? I find no-one can do this for me except myself. Alcohol only helps you one night at a time, but can often shape your perspective on things to give you new insight--in moderation. Go for a run, listen to uplifting music, meditate, and most importantly... wait patiently.

    Nice gaming headphones PC

    For great sound on a gaming headset, there isn't anything better than Sennheiser PC350 for the price. They are expensive, but are extremely comfortable and the sound is amazing--but you will need a very good sound card to tell (buy yourself a nice ~$100 7.1 card by ASUS, etc.) I had one pair that is still in excellent condition after two years of steady use, but I runfortunately ipped off the headset portion (accidentally). But if you're not willing to spend the money, any decent brand (Sennheiser, etc.) headphones at $70 will all sound the same for the same style (open vs. closed) without a nice sound card, it's just a matter of comfort.

It's sad SSDs are actually constricted by even the newer SATA standards.

    Wireless Network got hacked

    This doesn't necessarily mean you were hacked. You could have been attacked or your neighbours just tried to see if they could get on. But if in fact you were attacked, after you've dealt with your computers, I would beef up your network security a bit. Most settings are self-explanatory, but just don't turn off your SSID broadcast, that in fact will make you less secure to someone who really wants to get in.

    Primus - Nemaria Universe

    You're welcome. I find almost everyone entering into a computer science degree (including myself) never actually end up staying on that path. But education is never in vain, as you (and me) have found out. I didn't mind the software engineering aspect, or circuitry, or programming. For me, the incredibly dull parts were compiler design, algorithm analysis, theoretical math, assembly code, and anything else of low-level abstraction. I justify this as okay to myself as one of my passions is the lowest of low in abstraction--physics. But there is definitely a difference between having to come up with a project in a group with a timeline and letting the creativity come out at your own pace. The former is one of the reasons why I decided not to finish. That and the fact of being trapped in a cubicle writing code for something I care nothing about sounds absolutely abyssmal. I like to actually work. Lost Odyssey is one of the few great modern RPGs out there. I thoroughly enjoyed the game (sans the annoying children). The DLC is actually pretty challenging as well. Android and mobile development in general is something we really want to look into as the market is quite large and fairly simple to develop for. But, I absolutely detest the abomination is Apple. Sure, they develop great (but nice-looking terribly underpowered notebooks) products that provide great functionality... if everything else you own is iJunk. But their philosphy can't stand up to the direction open source software and intellectual property is headed, IMO. Also the open source Android console seems like it could either flop or could be revolutionary to the industry. But we aren't really doing this for profit (although some of us would like to quit our day jobs to do this), rather than the fun of crafting a world that is your own and having others enjoy it... but we may end up charging a small amount anyway, if only to cover costs.

    Primus - Nemaria Universe

    Great to see someone building a nice RPG! I've spent my fair share of time fooling around in RPG Makers (2000-VX Ace) over the last decade, and I've taken on quite a few ambitious projects. The longest game of mine only made it to about three to four hours, as I have a tendancy to keep remaking games from the start, slightly more perfect each time--resulting in basically zero productivity. But it's been a long time since I've worked on a creative project like that. I never did like the changes from XP to VX, but VX Ace (other than the tile art style) seems very sleek. Since then, I've moved towards actually coding a game engine from scratch with a few friends in the hopes of developing an awesome RPG. It'll definitely be a lot more versatile than Ruby/RGSS, but it's going to be a lot of work to get it as easy to work and build with as RGSS. But I admire you for keeping true to your projects for so long, and hope you build a great game for us to enjoy.

    FBI Moneypak Scam

    I hate to be an ass on matters like this, and even though I may feel bad for someone who doesn't really understand how the Internets works, almost everyone who falls for this deserves to lose a hundred bucks.

    I may have broken my laptop

    It's definitely a last resort and not so likely to work, but if the HDD is otherwise unrecoverable, I don't think there aren't many people willing to pay a lot of money to recover their data. But he wanted a magic trick, so. I find it funny how easily data can be come irrecoverable and the extent to which people go to destroy it. (Microwaves, magnets, "Gutmann pass", boot and nuke etc.)

    I may have broken my laptop

    Well, the battery and power supply are probably fine, but you could have broken any (and all) the other components. If your laptop is far enough out of warranty, paying for any sort of repair (especially a replaced screen) will probably cost you as much as a low-end new laptop. Aside from the fans, can you hear the HDD spinning up? II would suggest pulling your HDD out, throwing it in a desktop (your may have to remove a IDE to SATA adapter from the HDD), backing up your files and saving up for a new laptop. If your HDD was damaged, there is a small chance you can freeze it in a plastic bag for a few hours to have enough time to recover your data (if it happens to have a bad solder joint that can be fixed by shrinking the board down to make contact again)

    The Internet Defense League

    I think this is quite unnecessary. I don't know how to solve the problems the internet faces other than waiting for a global mind shift of the older generation towards more liberal policies in regards to intellectual property. Slapping a notice on your website (which is probably only visited by people with a similar mindset as you) is the wrong way to convince a critic. Unless your website is massive and used by nearly everyone every day (Search engines, Wikipedia, social media), there are always alterantives that are going to abide by the law, not matter how restrictive it is. But, there will always be websites like Wikileaks, ThePirateBay, proxies, etc. that allow us to "steal"/share information and ideas. And there will forever will be the darknets and places and Tor networks, etc. Now that we know what we can have, these things aren't going anywhere. I wouldn't worry about internet freedom, there are far bigger problems we will be facing this century.

    Forum Converted to IPB

    Most excellent work, Koby! Glad to see how smooth transferring years of data across forum softwares can be. I definitely prefer the defalt look of IPB compared to vB4.

    Forum Rollback [Why Your Posts Are Gone!]

    The header and navlinks and such on vB4 are incredibly annoying to use with full width banners. There are three different menus, and no front-end options to change their positions. Their styling system is also incredibly complicated, like 50 different CSS files, and hundreds of template files. They do have a large list of variables to edit colours, fonts, borders, etc. but it isn't all-inclusive. But, other than the styling, vB4 is pretty versatile and comes with almost more options than you could use.

    Post your WPM scores!

    This is much harder than copying sentences or even forming logical arguments in your head. Due to the mindless word order my accuracy goes out the window since it's very difficult to look ahead, and I find myself spending more time backspacing than not, but I managed an average of 115WPM. Give me a few pages from a book, and I can get a bit over 120WPM. I think this is my upper limit; I've been able to type as fast as I can since late in high school and I spent many hours practicing. I've never personally met (witnessed, I suppose) anyone who could type faster than I can but I think it would be cool. I have a friend who uses two fingers to type and can get get over 50WPM without looking at the keyboard. It's almost disturbing to watch and probably even more difficult than 120 with all your fingers. For a school project he built a program to read input from an Xbox controller and devised a system where you could write text with an analog stick and four buttons. He had to test a bunch of people for speed in various tasks compared to a mouse and keyboard. For the typing test, he just had the standard lazy fox sentence, which I did in 3 and some seconds with the keyboard, but 126 with the controller. Fortunately someone (who had never used a computer before in their life) took 5 minutes to complete it.

    Small problem after I flashed my bios

    I haven't encountered a problem like this before, but, it's generally best to set your BIOS defaults prior to flashing. I would back everything up, then unplug and pull the battery, clear CMOS, plug back in, set BIOS defaults, reflash the BIOS. If that doesn't work, try another hard drive.

    Internet Downloading Issue

    Your first problem is that "anxserver.net" seems to no longer exist. The domain seems to be registered, but perhaps the site was taken down? Anyway, that problem is not fixable from your end. For the second site, it definitely could be a Java issue, but I am unable to use the site as it keeps trying to tell me Java is disabled. So I suggest you find another way to download Youtube videos (An extension on Firefox is definitely the easiest.) Do you experience issues on other sites, or just these two?

    Do you smoke weed?

    Or even standing still. Pilots and flight attendants, etc. can be exposed to radiation (just due to a higher altitude) about on par to a radiation worker. And they die of cancers at a higher rate than most other professions. One should enjoy their life as they see fit so long as it doesn't interfere with someone else's rights. And as for pot, unless you choke on it, it can't kill you, so have some fun.

    Downloading

    Rapidshare has extremely limited their downloading for free users since Megaupload's demise. You're lucky to get 70kb/s. Unless you have a premium account with them, I doubt you were getting 1.5MB/s. Is the traffic problem only on direct downloads from these types of sites, or is browsing chugging along as well? Can you stream YT videos easily, etc.?

    Downloading

    Is the problem continuing today? Are you downloading from computers in a lab or Wi-Fi on your laptop? If it's off your laptop your university could be throttling your connection. Read your university's network access policy to see if they have a bandwidth cap and if they disallow or throttle certain types of traffic. If only certain types of traffic are being throttled, you may be able to circumvent this by setting up an outside computer as a server and transfer everything through SSH.
