TweetDeck is good...I'm a big fan of separation into groups like that, but I much much much much much preferred their Groups over Twitter's lists. and they've slowly been ripping groups out...last update ripped out the last piece of functionality from them...which was the feature I used them for
I have a license for XP Home and Pro, and the media (the licenses are from scrapped Dell systems) so, I could use those, but A, I don't think they will work, and B) I can't install it on my system - flash drives are junk - the dvd drive doesn't see the .iso CD
And I mean $40 shipping for a $15 T-shirt?
I have this image here from a previous quote(didn't place it then) where 2xbeer steins and a T-shirt resulted in $24 shipping.. which is reasonable considering the items, but, golly $40 for a T-shirt?

wow when i showed up here this day, I thought somone was going around just downvoting everything for fun. The longer I am here , the more it looks like there is a contest going for Weirdest and stupidest question of the week :-) I think i need to get my entry in.
Which ones of these would win this contest: Where can I find the metal in Chrome? How can I make it so my cable modem sounds like a phone modem when it connects? Where do I get a monitor for left handed people? Why wont my toaster work when it is plugged into the USB port?
So, at this point, I had a usable computer. Since I was pretty burned out by the hours I spent working on it already, I didn’t want to dive right back in and started using it a bit more. Besides, I didn’t know I wasn’t done yet (aside from knowing I was missing a multi-card reader, which I need). There was also the fact that the hard drive cage was laying out on the floor and it was somewhat annoying. But that was stuff I was willing to deal with in the short term, as I wanted to get working on setting up the software in my newly built PC. After using it for a few days and discussing the proje …
Back in the day, I think they used to put display samples for keyboards out in stores like Staples and whatnot. I don't know if they still do, though. And the good ones aren't being sold there anyway. :(
Wow, I just had a brain fart... I use ctrl+arrowkeys to scroll up/down in Visual Studio without moving the cursor, all the time. I just tried pressing ctrl+alt+arrowkeys to do the same, and it didn't. I thought I had a stuck key or something, until I realized I was doing it wrong.
I have a spreadsheet that I would like to use to track the NFL seasons.
I'm having trouble figuring out the formula to use when there is a tie (either a 2-way, 3-way, or more). I have attached a screen shot of my spreadsheet. I have columns set up and I would like the ranking formula to be p...
Are questions related to specific natural languages too localized?
One of the reasons questions are closed as too localized is geography as stated e.g. here, even if the question is possibly relevant to all of China (population 1.3B) or all of India (1.2B), both of which have a greater populatio...
While we had questions closed as too localized because it was only relevant to people in India, I believe this was a wrong decision. On MSO, the site operators once stated that e.g. something specific to programmers in Montreal (IIRC) was OK on SO.
Too short cables, motherboard->case headers that you can breath on and the connections come loose, PCIe cards overhanging memory, no place to store unused PSU cables, the thing you need to get to being behind absolutely everything else, connector labels that you cannot see once the mobo is in the case, yet can only be connected to once inside the case
@JourneymanGeek Yeah for sure. Though the earliest Dells had a great modular build where you could just pop out various parts of the innards. That was back in the day when manus were happy with tinkering.
These days the design ethic seems to be to make it as hard as possible to service
Did my first overclock on one of those optiplexes. I noticed a jumper on the motherboard that said "25Mhz / 33Mhz" - and I thought "you are kidding right", and switched it over. 30% speed increase! (so in todays measure it went from extraordinarily slow to imperceptibly less slow)
