    posted a message on Gender Poll

    I know. Kind of disappointed but not really surprised. From my experience, a lot of guys in the minecraft community act really creepy to any girls they encounter.


    A lot of guys in general, not really specific to the Minecraft community. It's awful.

    No, it means transgender and such.


    Uhh, no. Trans people often still identify as male or female. There are, however, plenty of other genders not defined within the binary.

    The option to disable or prevent updates should return with the RTM release. Allegedly, they will continue the Insider program, and allow people to download Windows 10 for free, but those "free" licenses will be unable to turn off the automatic updates.

    From what I've heard, any Windows 10 user will be unable to disable or delay updates.

    Quote from Tripredacus»

    People using the Windows 10 Insider Preview have found it difficult or impossible to actually disable Windows Update.


    And in Windows 10, it is pretty much impossible to disable, even for business customers (although they can delay it longer).

    Are you sure there's not a computer on your home WiFi network with that name?

    Well, without the disk it's about as useful as bubble wrap, I'm afraid


    That HDD had been dead for a great number of years :P

    Quote from _Xiae»

    Bubble wrap is pretty damn useful for posting things in the mail, or moving house, or... popping..


    ... I need to go find some bubble wrap now ...

    posted a message on Does MC use 4 cores?
    Quote from Cerroz»

    Yes. Some will tell you that the game can only use up to 2 cores, though it can take some serious advantage of hyperthreading and use more than that.


    Uhh, I can't find a single thing that supports this claim.

    By the way, I'm not sure, where is your read disk? Why is it not there?


    Mine?


    I just happened to have this still laying around, was playing with the platters and took them out a while ago.

    Just haven't gotten around to throwing it out yet I suppose.

    I feel like the whole post count really misrepresents how active a person is.


    And I have 5,000 something posts and I went almost 7 months without even visiting this site!

    You don't open a HDD. You just don't. There are some extreme and rare cases where it may be beneficial to take the cover off with extreme care (dislodging a stuck read head for example), but outside of that you just don't unless you're in a clean room and know what you're doing.


    How do I get all my irreplaceable data back?!???!

    posted a message on Do Macs run certain programs better than windows?
    Quote from Werewolf5153»

    Never had that problem downloading Visual Studios. I only used the 2010 and 2008 versions.


    For me, most the software I use is available on most OS's. I stay on windows because of how easy it is to install new hardware and the fact that installing stuff is really easy. I haven't used Mac OS stuff really, but on Linux, I had to search how to install Java and some other programs I used. Windows you just download an installer and click next a bunch of times.

    What OS should be your choice, not mine, not anyone else (expect maybe you jobs). If you prefer OS X over Windows, that is your choice.


    Assuming you're running a nice Linux distro *cough*Arch Linux*cough* you can install literally anything from the AUR without having to even grab installers with just a single command!


    I'm certainly not saying that everyone should use one OS or another because of what I need, everyone has different requirements for what their compute should do. That's why I still use Windows and Linux! I was just replying to another comment talking about people in the computer world preferring OS X.

    what do you mean theres far more than 2 genders?


    Gender identity isn't a binary!


    This page does a fairly good overview I think.

    [CITATION NEEDED]


    Ha ha. No. Running most software on modern operating systems as large as OS X and Windows do not require you to "jump through hoops to configure it all" anymore. And it hasn't for a long time. In almost every case it's as simple as clicking on install on windows, and dragging an app into the app folder on OS X. Though I suppose you actually have the option to configure things if you'd like on Windows.


    There's no longer a gap between OS X and Windows when it comes to "general work" and there hasn't been for many years. It used to be that OS X was good for productivity tasks but it no longer is. Mostly everything works the same, if not better on Windows.


    Windows not being POSIX compatible is an absolute nightmare for doing half of what I do. So much software isn't even built for it, or can't be built for it.


    It's crazy I'd need to install a bunch of third party binaries or download something as massive as Visual Studio to build things (that require tons of porting to even work, and often aren't tested or are buggy) to do what I think of basic.


    Also, for what it's worth, I use Windows, OS X, and Linux on a daily basis.

    Quote from rootubuntu»


    Really?

    Over here, you go college then uni (if you want).

    How does it work in the US?

    I know you have unis...


    U.S. university or college follows after high school, or secondary school. A college in the U.S.A. is not a high school or secondary school. College and university programs begin in the thirteenth year of school, when a student is 17 or 18 years old or older. A two-year college offers an associate's degree, as well as certificates. A four-year college or university offers a bachelor's degree. Programs that offer these degrees are called "undergraduate" schools.

    A "university" is a group of schools for studies after secondary school. At least one of these schools is a college where students receive a bachelor's degree. The other schools in a university are"graduate" (also known as "postgraduate") schools where students receive advanced degrees. Therefore, a university offers both the bachelor's degree and graduate degrees such as the master's (M.A.) and doctorate (Ph.D.).
