I just googled "dreams cause pollution" and got zero results. now that I typed "dreams cause pollution" into a public forum, will I get one? Let me see...

edit: I do not! scam!

The German Authorities must be censoring more than 'hate speech'. Googling it gave me tons of things to look at.

Did you use quotes?

Help me f.ds, I summon thee!


We are playing Carcassonne, I have a mayor in a city, can I put a Builder there (I guess the question is whether a mayor counts as a knight or not)?

Mayor counts as a knight.

I just changed to Windows 10. I'm not using the word update, because after having used it for about 20 minutes I'm pretty certain that's not a word it deserves me using.

"Downdate"?

Which OS did you change from?

Windows 7. I've spent the last few hours trying to work out why my mousepad no longer scrolls vertically, downloading new drivers, updating and reverting drivers, working without a mouse as things just don't seem to be recognised or work properly on Windows 10. I decided screw it, it isn't worth it, I'll revert to Windows 7, since that's an option from one month after updating - and it wasn't there for some reason. It won't let me revert to Windows 7 in other words.

Damn, I'm sorry. I'm glad I haven't switched from Windows 7 myself. Though it's not from a lack of Windows itself trying to convince me to update.

Should have gotten 8.1 instead.

So I've finally managed to find and install a driver which a) Works properly, b) Doesn't instantly try and revert to another driver, c) Has edge scrolling as an option.

I'm suddenly considerably happier with my downgrade to Windows 10. It feels like I haven't lost anything significant now except time.

The thing I like the least is the new UI for Settings. The Control Panel was fine; why change it (for the worse)? Luckily, the old Control Panel is still there but it is sometimes a pain to get to.

I actually find the new settings menu pretty intuitive and well laid out. I can find things in it more quickly than I could in Control Panel, and well I'd used the Control Panel several times on Win7 and before vs. only using Settings today.

Dude. I downloaded a program to stop it from pushing Windows 10 at me. http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/

Windows 10 isn't horrible.  It's better than 8.  I'll admit that I haven't used 7 that much, but I have Windows 10 and it's worked fine for me.

Well, other than the fact that I just came back from some weird computer problems that seemed like hardware issues that got fixed by a system restore.

While we're on the subject, does anyone know of a way to actually clean install Windows 10 on a computer instead of just upgrading an existing version of Windows? It's about that time of the decade where I wipe my hard drive instead of upgrading, but I can't find an obvious way to do this.

I find the horror stories about Win10 upgrades surprising.  We've upgraded three computers, two of which are custom builds, and have had zero issues.

I cleanly installed Win 10 after an 8.1 update suddently made windows unable to cooperate with pretty much all drivers on an 1-yr old pc. (microsoft says it was the manifacturer's fault, but I somewhat doubt it)
I had to fix a couple of settings for the motherboard driver to make standby work as intended, but done that I never looked back. From the UI point of view, I like that I can pretend to have never heard of "start screens" and "settings menus" and whatnot.
It doesn't run CiV, but I haven't tried hard either, and maybe that's for the best. :P

I think that you could download the dvd/usb wizard installer from Microsoft's. Using that (on an usb drive) gave me the option to format my HDD.
Everybody I spoke about recommended doing this over using the wonky upgrade feature.
