The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
You're absolutely right, Karen; it really shouldn't be in the Lounge. It's borderline, but the funny factor outweighed naughty bit. Besides, I don't know of any modern kid sister who would find it shocking or naughty. Standards have slipped from the days when I was a kid brother.
I've been using Windows 8 since the first developer preview waay back, and have defended it against the naysayers, and then it goes and does this on me. After a while, my desktop/downloads/recent places links become rendered useless! This has happened multiple times on multiple machines, and no I don't use a Microsoft account, always sign into the machine locally so it's not like it happened once and then synced to the other machines. Anybody any idea why this happens?
Had this on both 8.0 and 8.1 on different occasions,
Well that looks fun. A quick search shows people having this issue on Windows 7 as well, though, and it has something to do with file associations; restoring the defaults seems to fix it. (Now can one restore the defaults without wiping out any associations you've added while installing applications? Hope so.)
Yesterday I installed 8.1 in a VM, it was literally the first time I've ever used 8/8.1. Half way through the install it says something went wrong with the group policy but carries on anyway. The desktop part of it literally does not work, all the icons glitch out and can't be clicked.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
Drives me crazy that people don't control their children and are more interested in their cell phones then their kids. Get off the phone, pay attention to your kid(s) and if they get out of hand deal with them...we don't wanna hear them screaming.
Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead? Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
I know I've a story like this before that Reddit post. Dunno if that means the Reddit one is fake, that this was a repost by the person who did it before, or even that someone else saw the one I did a while ago and decided to act it out in real life.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies. -- Sarah Hoyt
