Everyone's been doing this whole 2010 vs. 2019 thing on the intertubes, and it got me thinking about the end of year recaps that Windows Weekly (and many other podcasts) does - specifically about the best segments of the decade.
My all-time absolute favorite segment was Paul convulsing with laughter in the MacGyver-Matlock section of Windows Weekly 303. It begins almost exactly at the 1:37 mark of the show. What makes it so absolutely hysterical is no only is Paul rendered almost speechless, but Mary Jo's bewilderment at what's going on - but her attempt to push through it.
I watch this segment every couple of years or so, and it brings me to tears every time.
I currently use a Samsung Galaxy S2 for my Android tablet for reading and light gaming; and it's starting to show it's age a bit with battery life and the kinds of game it supports. I was thinking about a Huawei 8" tablet (since those have received some pretty stellar reviews) but with the ban going on, I'm hoping there are alternatives.
So - what are the good-to-great 8" Android tablets out there?
Yeah - I'm one of the nerds that used (and still does) Windows Home Server 2011. At the time, it was perfect for my Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines - especially with the automated client backup (which I have had occasion to use more than once). However, with Windows 10 - I've found that the client software breaks every time there's one of of the biannual feature updates. To fix it, I have to completely uninstall and reinstall the client. And in any case, the backup functionality doesn't seem to work well for Windows 10 machines.
I also use MyMovies for my collection (I have one remaining Windows 7 machine for Media Center - me and two other guys in the world), if I have to - I can move that from WHS directly onto the Media Center machine.
To make the long story short (too late) - I'm looking into something to completely replace WHS. I need the shared folders and the automated client backup functionality. I'd like to be able to host a Minecraft server (the new Bedrock server, not a Java one).
What I want to do is replace WHS with a decent 4-drive NAS (like a QNAP or a Synology) but if there's a decent server software replacement (anyone try Amahi?) that I can install on my WHS hardware, I'd be up for that too.
Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!
So is there a chance that the website could be upgraded to support login with Microsoft accounts (like my Outlook.com email) instead of (or addition to) Facebook or Google? I have accounts with both, but would prefer to not give them any more data than I already have to.
I'm looking to get an OBD II device for my 2002 Toyota RAV 4. I've found several for less than $30 that seem to have good ratings, and one that's $99. Thought I would ask the community here if they've had good experiences with any particular device.
We recently got cable (because extended family can't live without sports .. sure, we'll go with that excuse) and have it hooked up through our XBOX One S. I managed to repurpose an old IR cable from Media Center so I could change the channels and it works great.
The only thing is that I want to hide the Adult channels from my kids, so they don't have to see shows like "Toothless MILFs of Appalachia" or some crap like that. So far - I haven't found a way to do it. I know WMC had an option to hide or disable channels from appearing in the guide, so I'm hoping the same thing exists in XBOX.
Any help or suggestions?
The subject is the question. Does the fact that a phone/computer/gadget/etc has UCB-C mean that the device is technically capable of being used as a Thunderbolt device? Or is Thunderbolt an enhancement or specific implementation of USB-C?
I'm starting to see more devices with USB-C, like the low-cost CHUWI devices, and was wondering if that meant those devices could be connected to an eGPU for a performance boost.
I have been unable to find a way to model ribbon UI apps in Visio. Is there a free template/stencil available - either from Microsoft or a 3rd party that would help me accomplish this goal?
I know Samsung used to make a Android-version of the iPod Touch - their Galaxy Player, but I believe it's been discontinued. Is there anything out today that would fill the iPod Touch niche for Android?
I really like the Thurrott Now feature. I've made it one of my default tabs on my browser. One thing that I would like is for the feed list to be continuous and not day-specific. I occasionally miss days in reading and would just like to be able to scroll through the list without having to select each day that I want to view.
One of the coolest features (for me - at the time) of the Lumia camera app was this smart-photo option that could, among other things, take 'action shots'. For those who are not aware of this - the camera would take a series of rapid photos and create this image that was a composite of the movement in the photo.
I haven't found a good Android camera app that has this feature and was wondering if anyone could recommend one? Thanks!
Hey all - I purchased a Logitech TouchPad T650 back when I was running Windows 8 and was, initially, happy that the pad seemed to work properly on Windows 10. Obviously, I've since discovered that none of the navigation gestures that the TouchPad supported under Windows 8 (swipe up with 3 fingers to switch apps, etc).
To make it more irritating, when you plug in the Logitech sensor that the TouchPad connects to, the SetPoint app automatically installs and there doesn't seem to be any way to override it or whatever.
So - I'm hoping there's either a 3rd party driver that someone has put together, or some setting in Windows 10 that I've missed, that will re-enable those gestures.
Thanks in advance!
