@Hennes I've known the term "Ethernet" since I was like 6. I'm 15 now. We're not dumb.
 
Bob
@Rahul2001 [citation needed]
:P
 
@Bob oh ok
In Kenya they just held it for 6 weeks while denying they had it
So we purchased another card
then the original turned up at the premises (in Kenya) with our guy going 'wtf that was the fastest shipping ever!). - we hadn't yet sent the replacement card...
hmmm how can I identify where a file is coming from, on a network drive
these .tmp files are being created by something, and never cleaned up
user is complaining, but I have no clue what's creating them :/
 
@Hennes there was a survey in the UK recently which said most people couldn't live without "wifi". having wifi is pointless if there is no connection to the wider internet
 
10:19 AM
@Rahul2001 I posted a link to a SF question earlier where someone asked what a pager was
 
@Burgi people don't realise this tho, it's funny
goes to some remote place' ooooo we have wifi'
 
@Nick Why ask me? I know nothing about Lenovos ...
 
strings shows 'word/webSettings.xmlPK' kits
I'm guessing MS word.
 
10:43 AM
@JourneymanGeek I have my dad's old pager...
 
@Rahul2001 you can stay on the lawn then. Though try not to fall off.
 
XD
 
(the closest thing I have to a lawn is a patch of grass on my balcony)
 
@DavidPostill I think some people see you as an all around tech genius... And that's not a bad thing xD
 
 
1 hour later…
11:48 AM
hey guys
I hope you're well
I have question for microsoft lovers ...
 
In most Windows, there is the folder C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns
I found out that in the mexican version of windows, the AddIns folder is called Complementos.
 
Bob
Welcome to the wacky world of localisation.
 
actually, we were talking about that elsewhere
 
Bob
Enjoy your stay. Our tour guide, @OliverSalzburg, will show you around.
 
11:52 AM
Is this behavior only located to Latin countries? If no, is there a guide where I can do a decent conversion
 
[citation needed] but apparently MS would hire random companies to do localisations, and stuck to them
 
Are you talking about my question, @Bob or someone else?
 
Bob
Pretty sure @OliverSalzburg posted a link to an (incomplete) MS localisation table somewhere.
 
you were talking to me @Bob, just got that
@OliverSalzburg ...?
 
Bob
@JourneymanGeek Each one has a different level of completeness
 
11:57 AM
@Nikita hi
 
Bob
AHA FOUND IT

Holy cow. This is brilliant: http://www.microsoft.com/Language/en-US/Search.aspx?sString=NOTIFICATION%20AREA&langID=de-de
though I don't think that localisation db covers folder names
 
@Burgi Still, not pointless, but most people wouldn't know wtf to do with themselves.
 
@Bob Oh yeah, that is some sexy quoting!
 
12:15 PM
@OliverSalzburg o_O am i missing something here?
 
lol
Clearly ;)
 
12:33 PM
@djsmiley2k Maybe. I dunno
The statement was pretty clear and on-point IMHO
 
12:49 PM
'The next Insider build should have a fix. But for people doing serious work with Linux command-line apps, not having Ctrl-C is a little like driving a car when only the front brakes work.'
wut
front brakes?
why would you control the brakes on your car, like you do a bike?!
