Well, attempt X at reinstalling windows failed. X, BTW is at least 3 at this point.
@MBraedley I think @TrentHawkins has you beat.
@Frank is he doing that today too?
@MBraedley He's spent the last couple of weeks trying to get Windows working.
the installation alone was 10+ attemps, not counting the eventually aborted XP-SP3 attempts.
@Frank crazy thing is, windows was working. I just had enough with Firefox not working.
It's really annoying when porn YouTube doesn't buffer properly.
9:03 PM
@MBraedley And just reinstalling Firefox wouldn't do it?
@Frank well if I had done a completely clean install, maybe
@Ullallulloo That looks pretty good.
I'm not convinced it would have solved the constant crashes, either.
All of them are Steam'd.
I should play through miner wars 2081
I preordered it, and then for whatever reason, never played it
I did the first mission a few days ago
Pretty good.
I suck at 6DOF controls though.
A pair of Canadian sisters won gold and silver medals at the olympic ski moguls
Take that, other countries!
I just ripped my sweater sleeve
Okay, preparing for attempt X+1. Preparations take a while though.
9:12 PM
Dammit, @MBraedley!
We only needed 3 more messages before my entire chat window was just @GnomeSlice talking.
There, you can have my glory
2 hours ago, by MBraedley
Canada gets gold and silver in women's moguls! Congrats to the Dufour-Lapoint sisters!
@MBraedley Not starred, so irrelevant data.
There we go.
I'd be disappointed if Canada doesn't get 1st or 2nd place in the medal count.
For me, it's kinda expected at the Winter Olympics.
@Yuki actually, we came in third by total count in Vancouver. Had the most golds though.
US is typically the most dominant.
Q: How to forcibly enable Dual Graphics/Crossfire support for Kaveri and R7 250?

nakedhitmanI recently built one of those newfangled AMD Kaveri systems, but am having a little trouble setting it up for dual graphics/Crossfire. Here is the hardware list: Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty FM2A88X+ Killer (Updated to BIOS v1.8) CPU: A10-7850K GPU: GIGABYTE GV-R725O5-2GI Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-...

9:24 PM
@Yuki Of course, igloos and all that
Q: how do you find stronghold libraries in minecraft?

Hugo DoddI have searched all the strongholds I can find, but I have never found a stronghold library. Does anyone know of a 100% accurate way to find stronghold libraries?

I see
canada is cold
so we must be the best
9:58 PM
Windows is mostly installed!
> The product key is not valid
Q: Enable Tnt on spigot

user68813I host a spigot server and one of my ops has disabled TNT. We cannot figure out how to enable TNT. doTileDrop is true, essentials is not disabling it, the factions mod is not disabling it. Does anyone have any ideas?

Q: Is There any quick way do obtain Daedra Hearts

Nortonator369My armor right now is Ebony with the (Epic) improvement, my smithing is level 85 and i am saving any daedra hearts i encounter for the daedric armor, my friend told me after i do the mehrunes dagon quest there will be 4 daedra's waiting to fight me with a lovely daedra heart each at his shrine , ...

Fuck you Microsoft!
@MBraedley That's really really annoying
10:13 PM
Aaaand again
So, do I dig in and buy a Win8 license, or do I dig out a Vista disk and go about this again?
I also have a Win7 Home Premium disk easily accessible. I wonder if that would work.
I don't think it will let you upgrade to windows 8 if you haven't activated 7
It's still better than the 7 to 8 to 8.1 nonsense I went through last autumn..
Q: Can you get charged creeper spawners without any external programmes?

Hugo DoddI have been searching on youtube for ages, but I can not find any tutorials on how to get charged creeper spawners without mc edit or nbt edit. Is there a way to get charged creeper spawners without the use of external programmes?

@3ventic I would do another fresh install. Not going to get an upgrade license.
That would work
10:24 PM
what are the differences between 8.1 and 8.1 pro?
not sure
Q: What was first football game to have a draft?

blankipFriends and I were debating on the first (American) football game to have a draft of any kind. I definitely remember playing a DOS game on 3.25 floppy in late 80s to early 90s that had this functionality. You were basically the GM/Coach. During games you would choose each play - I think ther...

Hmm, I don't need BitLocker or the ability to join a domain. Do I really need an RDP host for my primary machine? Especially since my HTPC and tertiary machine both have an RDP server (for admin purposes). I can also add VNC
RDP is remote access?
10:29 PM
It allows me to play hearthstone on my android tablet :p
I mean that's all they've listed. There could be more
I think hyper-V is only in the pro version
@3ventic Don't really need virtualization
and I'm running AMD anyway
Me too
10:31 PM
or do I have those backwards
I'd use hyper-v if it didn't cut out my internet connection
I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore.
Is this real?
I think it's just a problem with using Vista drivers
If it is this is amazing.
@RedRiderX That's on top of the starlist lol
10:32 PM
@RedRiderX old!
Well I just got here
Read the starlist!
But yeah, as I was saying, probably not the best idea to use Vista drivers for 8.1...
So, @RedRiderX, do I install Vista and then perform an upgrade to Win7, or do I buy Win8.1 and only do one more installation?
It's mostly a question whether you use something a lot that's only compatible on Windows 7 and not 8.1
There's barely any real downside to 8.1 except getting used to it
Steam is the only thing to really worry about, I think. But that's been mostly solved, right?
10:35 PM
Steam runs fine for me on 8.1
Flappy Bird https://vine.co/v/MaY3Tqxi6EF
I mean I presume OBS will work fine, my Logitech and Cyborg stuff will be fine, etc
That vine is worth watching. :P
Q: Should I be a Vampire Warrior

Nortonator369I am a level 33 Nord warrior wth my perks in Smithing, one-handed, Block, and Heavy Armor, I completed the Dawnguard quest AGAINST the vampires, i have auriels bow tested it and got tha fancy achievement, Serana is my follower and is just Begging to turn me into a vampire lord, I was a vampire be...

Q: Is there a way to tell if an alien is aggressive or friendly on Starbound?

JessicaI have found that some aliens cause me no harm at all, whereas others will try and kill me. Is there a way of knowing for sure if an alien is going to kill me or not before I go stabbing it? I'd rather not go killing 20 peaceful creatures if they were never going to harm me in the first place!

@MBraedley Check driver compatibility
My mouse doesn't have drivers for 8.1, but it does for 7
I'm only losing the macros though
10:38 PM
I'm trusting enough in Logitech, and just checked Cyborg. I should be good.
Ahoy, Bridge!
Okay, standard edition. I'm doing it! Need to move back to HTPC
@Lazers I'm gonna go with: If there's ever a choice to do so, take it. I know nothing of the game, though.
@Fluttershy Yeah! What's the deal with that guy? He's making a fortune off the game, and now he's pulling it? It's interfering with his simple life????
@DavidM Or he doesn't want to be sued out of existence by Nintendo.
Seeing as he's using some of their graphical assets in his game
@Powerlord He's claiming it's not due to a lawsuit. But, yeah I thought the same.
10:43 PM
Q: Can i play installed games on xbox 360 without cd'

user68819My xbox only reads original discs it's pal region and i want to know if it's possible somehow to play installed games without discs

Really Ubisoft?
What is that even trying to say?
"or in"
@Powerlord To be fair, changing the visuals wouldn't be much of a problem.
10:45 PM
maybe it was hand-written and later copied on the computer without any thought put into it
@DavidM Isn't it a free game?
They're evidently not fans of the Oxford comma either, I guess.
@3ventic I thought so, but he is making Ad revenue.
Per the reports I saw.
@TimStone I'm a huge fan of the Oxford Comma! But, many are not. Ubisoft, however, is clearly not a fan of copyediting.
@TimStone Nobody except for English majors is a fan of the Oxford comma. ಠ_ಠ
@FEichinger wat
10:48 PM
@FEichinger Microbiology major.
@FEichinger nearly 20 years go . . .
Q: How do can I know if my xbox damages discs

user68819About a week ago while i was playing my friend took console up and it started making awful voices, game cd was damaged and i want to know if it's bad for xbox? Console is making voices when disc is in

2 mins ago, by David M
@TimStone I'm a huge fan of the Oxford Comma! But, many are not. Ubisoft, however, is clearly not a fan of copyediting.
@DavidM cough
@DavidM I just use the serial comma because that's how I've always been taught.
@Unionhawk We all have our weird little things we like . . .
10:51 PM
@FEichinger What kind of monster doesn't like the Oxford comma?
@DavidM No, cough at 20 years ago (I'm nearly 20 years old >_>)
@Unionhawk Well . . . I graduated from High School in 1993. So, there's that.
@DavidM Before I was born: confirmed.
@Unionhawk I don't believe I'm your father, though, if that's what you're asking . . .
@DavidM He's not asking. He knows you're his father.
10:52 PM
@GnomeSlice is my father, obv
@Yuki I did used to get around in the 90s . . .
Why Oxford Commas are important (not quite SFW, drawn though, not actual people)
@DavidM ಠ_ಠ
When I first got to this site, we had to determine that I wasn't @gnomeslice 's dad! Now, yours. Sheesh . . .
@FAE I don't foresee an occasion in which I would ever invite strippers, JFK, or Stalin. Let alone all three.
10:54 PM
@FAE Brilliant!
@Yuki Depends on the party!
Although that would require a colon in my book of style.
God I hope windows is downloading the ISO and won't automatically install Win8.1 on my HTPC
@Fluttershy Well, I don't expect to be anyone's best man, so I doubt I'll ever be the one to invite strippers.
@Yuki Given that JFK and Stalni are dead, that'd be quite the occasion if you managed.
10:55 PM
@Yuki You can always invite strippers to your own parties!
Inviting them is easy. Getting them to show up is the hard part . . .
@DavidM It's actually a common enough cartoon that if you google "Oxford comma", "Oxford comma strippers" will show up in the search options
@FAE Granted, "Oxford comma strippers" is a pretty unique search term.
@DavidM Which is kind of awesome in itself.
Also, well done @FAE. Shifting the topic from the Oxford Comma to strippers - I'm impressed.
10:56 PM
@FAE "Oxford comma strippers" is not a phrase I would ever think to u-- GODAMMIT
It sounds like a minor league baseball team from Oxford: The Comma Strippers.
Stripping the comma is what got us here in the first place.
@FEichinger That just makes it sound dirty.
@FEichinger Unfortunately, not a marketable talent.
@DavidM Of course that was never my intention.
@FAE Oh, that depends.
10:58 PM
@FEichinger never
@FEichinger? Dirty? Never
For definitions of "never" meaning "always"
@MBraedley umm
Just get win 8
That's where the drivers / support will be.
@FEichinger Okay, not in the market I want to go into.
And with start 8 or something like that it's not the worst thing ever
@FAE Heh. That's true, I suppose.
11:01 PM
@FEichinger ...Okay, not in the market that I want to go into on a google-logged transcript.
@FAE See, that is what I figured. :P
Google-logged . . . feh. Let them search me!
@FEichinger I've been told before I have a voice that people would pay to listen to for certain circumstances.
@FAE That's already more detail than I ever asked for.
@FAE I assume you're referring to making subway station announcements.
11:04 PM
@FEichinger Do you regret it?
@FAE Not really, no.
@DavidM "Please stand away from the closing doors."
It's not After Dark yet, Bridge. :P
@FAE I have to say, the best of those I've heard around the world was in Prague. There's something so melodic about it in Czech (and I don't speak Czech!)
@Fluttershy That depends on where you live!
11:06 PM
It roughly translates to "If everyone will please finish entering and exiting the car, we can close the doors and begin the journey." Or so I've been told by a Czech speaking friend.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yo!
@LessPop_MoreFizz HI PUPPET
11:07 PM
@DavidM It seems things often sound prettier in languages outside your native tongue's language family.
@DavidM I spent my day (and will spend the next few days that I work) in yer old stomping grounds.
@LessPop_MoreFizz So, this predicted 30 inches turned into a major fizzle, eh.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Which ones? Port Wash?
@DavidM 30 inches was never predicted. People just forwarded a year old gawker article and freaked out
@Unionhawk Ahem . . . He's a youngling compared to me . . .
@LessPop_MoreFizz I know. I've been laughing at that all week.
11:08 PM
@DavidM I think it's like the whole "it's so foreign I have no idea what that is saying, but it sounds so nice" even though someone's disparaging your mother's sexual history or your personal hygiene.
@LessPop_MoreFizz There's a size joke in here somewhere ...
@FEichinger You would >_>
Well, technically you did
I'm actually at JFK ATM, sitting in the Delta Sky Lounge. Heading to Utah for the week.
@Unionhawk Well, no, I have respect for your poor young untainted soul.
@Fluttershy Pfft, I don't hear you complaining about my voice.
@DavidM Have a safe flight!
11:09 PM
@DavidM Lucky bastard.
@FEichinger Aren't I older than you?
@FAE Thanks!
@DavidM And yes, Port Washington.
@Unionhawk Doesn't really help your case, does it?
@FAE And this is even more not-asked-for detail. Why thank you!
Jan 30 at 20:45, by Unionhawk
I hate each and every one of you.
Barring some sort of catastrophe in it's recent history, I either have today, or will this week drive by your childhood home.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Annual ski trip conference on the boss's dime.
11:09 PM
@Unionhawk ♥
@FEichinger He's my boyfriend, I talk to him almost every day on Skype. :P
@FAE I know, hence why. ;)
@LessPop_MoreFizz Well done. Head up Port Blvd, and check out a place called Hickory. It's a dive, but the BBQ is excellent.
@FAE Well no. I'd be crazy if I did. :P
11:11 PM
@DavidM Might do. I haven't spent time up there since I was a little kid; once my much older cousins went off to college, I never had any reason to head that way
@LessPop_MoreFizz I haven't been back in a few years. But, when I head down there, it's a highlight.
@Unionhawk Nope. Very content being alive still.
@DavidM everything west of the train station / south of main street is done. :)
@FEichinger haha
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah. There isn't much down that way anymore. Used to be a few good places, but I think they've dried up. A lot of people like Shish Kebob, but I was never a fan.
11:14 PM
@DavidM Ayhans? lolchain.
I used to get takeout from the one in Westbury now and again when I worked in the Source.
Seriously... HOW?! (Original post at bottom, response at top)
@3ventic I dunno but you should give me your new key
Where do you want it?
Sent to my Steam.
@3ventic Contact in my profile
11:16 PM
This looks really fun.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah. His first location was in Port Wash, then he expanded to the source and nearly lost his shirt.
@DavidM ahahahahahaha I'm not surprised based on the traffic that location did.
It was convenient and occasionally beat the food court though.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Big food poisoning scare.
Especially in the desert that was The Source.
11:18 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz The steam link goes to my own feed... I guess I'll just send an email
Fortunoff's going out of business was criminal!
That family did everything in their power to fuck that one up.
@DavidM Yeah, they imploded in a big way.
I was working there as they finally went under and died for good.
For those not of the lower New York persuasion, @LessPop_MoreFizz and I are talking about a store that sold housewares and high-end jewelry for the better part of 60 years at a huge markup in a very affluent area. And, then the patriarch of the family dies, left the business to his children in a fractional ownership arrangement, and they killed it.
Check your mail @Less
@DavidM housewares, jewelry, and the sort of swarovski crystal statuary only purchased and displayed by little old jewish grandmothers.
@3ventic Yay! I shall not ban you this day!
11:21 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yup! Back before it was hot to bling out your phone with that shit.
@LessPop_MoreFizz my mother may be a grandmother, but she's not Jewish.
@DavidM No, I mean the little statues of swans and shit.
Those never came back in style.
@LessPop_MoreFizz What do you do for a living these days? So far I know that you have been employed: in the LIJ gift-shop, Fortunoff's, and as a public health lobbyist/advocate type.
@LessPop_MoreFizz True.
@DavidM I do fieldwork for Here.com
which means I spend my days driving in circles and taking notes and shit.
Currently working on a pattern that covers literally every single block of Nassau County north of the LIE.
11:23 PM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Nice work if you can get it. :-)
@LessPop_MoreFizz misread "taking a shit"
@LessPop_MoreFizz I loved crystals like that when I was a little kid, haha. My parents got me a tiny replica of Cinderella's chariot thingie.
@DavidM it pays okay, and it means I can bank a substantially above average percentage of my income because I spend such a large part of the year travelling.
@FAE Ah yes, the ever popular "Cinderella's Chariot Thingie"
11:25 PM
@DavidM Also, that list is missing: Community Organizer, Apple Store, Record Store, Kitchen Remodeling Sales, and Newspaper Delivery. (Not in that order.)
@LessPop_MoreFizz Noted. I will add it to my data bank on you.
@DavidM It's also entirely possible that you went to high school with one of my cousins now that I think about it.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Misread as: Communist organizer. LMAO!!!!
@LessPop_MoreFizz Name please?
@DavidM Not entirely inaccurate
@DavidM He has read a lot of Marx.
11:26 PM
@FAE Who hasn't. Haven't you heard? We Jews control the media, are responsible for Communism, bring the plague, etc. etc. etc.
I do enjoy controlling the media, though.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Who be your cousin?
@LessPop_MoreFizz Not even a tinkle.
@DavidM The question is whether or not you control a larger share than the Lizard People though!
@FAE They're just a straw-man we created years ago to divert attention.
OK. I gotta board soon. I will likely pop back in around 20,000 ft. (6 km).
@DavidM I really don't see how some people can connect "owns the world's banks" with "responsible for Communism". With the way banks are acting these days, that's kinda counter-intuitive.
@DavidM Oh yeah, I forgot that domestic flights have internet now.
@Yuki That's the beauty of baseless accusations. They don't have to make sense!
@FAE Yeah! Some international carriers have it, too if memory serves.
11:31 PM
@Yuki Oh, I bet there's a paper on that somewhere.
@DavidM None I've ever been on. :(
How did I not know this!?!?!?
@FAE You're not flying Emirates, etc. (Neither am I, though)
OK. Ciao, Bridge.
@DavidM Later!
@Yuki They're that smart those damned socialist yids
I mean, they're obviously trying to destroy capitalism through greed
(note, I'm being entirely sarcastic)
11:42 PM
@FAE I love the menu music in Jets'n'Guns.
So retro.
@GnomeSlice All the music is awesome. <3 Machinae Supremacy forever.
@GnomeSlice They're one of my favorite bands. They're metal, but they incorporate a SID chip from a Commodore 64 in their music.
@FAE That's awesome.
@FAE Are you familiar with C-Jeff?
If not, I highly recommend you listen through this. It's more prog rocky than metal, but I still think you'd probably like it.
@GnomeSlice That's okay, I'm a fan of prog rock as well.
That album is amazing.
(in my opinion)
In other news: Pizza!
11:51 PM
@GnomeSlice Cool, I'll check it out later
@FEichinger Oooh portabello pesto
Also why do these people use imgur for this
@FAE Make sure you listen to the whole thing all at once.
@FEichinger ... the hut?
Just got back from visiting my buddy in the hospital.
Good news! He's on the road to recovery, and should be able to go home on Monday.
@FAE Because it started out as a single gallery for some imgur rep ...
And then it turned into, well, this.
It's also not "these people". It's just thefoodguru.
@Frank Glad to hear it. :)
11:54 PM
@FAE Yeah. He's a cool guy to hang out with. I'd rather not have him croak early, if I have any say in the matter.
@FEichinger Ah, thought it was several people or something. Usually you see recipes posted more on Pinterest.
@Frank A sentiment most people share about people they care about. Unfortunately, we don't always get a say. :(
@FAE Indeed. He's not going to like it much, though, since he's going to have to slow down. He's not used to just sitting around and not doing anything strenuous.
Q: Where does the ESO beta installer download the files?

jmfsgI finished downloading the beta and ran out of space while installing the game. Then the installer decided to start downloading everything again; and so I decided to uninstall everything and play something else. However, I'm still missing several GB of storage that I had free prior to beginning ...

Q: Original Wii doesn't output to TV

Hardmath123We have a Wii that is a few years old. I'm trying to get it to work on a new Samsung SMART TV. It turns on and accepts/ejects disks, but remotes don't pair and it doesn't output anything to the TV.

@Frank Ah, that's always tough to have to adjust to if you're not used to it. :(
@FAE Yeah. My dad's the same way.
11:58 PM
@GnomeSlice 404
@GnomeSlice lmao what
I think he's friends with the developer.
