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

Standby is the feature whereby you need to hard shut off and power back on your computer to get it to do anything, right?   So useful.

I'm going to protest the lack of capitalization by some users on this board by typing in a different font face.

I've never understood your new avatar. Is it VATAR or RAVAT? It could also be ARAVATARAVATARAVATARAVATA.

How come there were no force ghosts in that new Ghostbusters movie? I was really disappointed. 4/10.

I think I'll make one or two of these for kicks in the future. Most of them aren't that funny, though the last two are great.

Man, thereís no explaining Seprix.

He can provide the true meaning, but Iíll give my interpretation of it just to see if Iím right.

I read it as the delayed response of Dominion cards. Most of the time, you buy something to use later. You rarely buy something for an immediate effectóand this is definitely true with Chancellor. So you recruit him for his deck-flipping ability, but you donít benefit from it until he shows up in your hand. You could replace him with the Smithy or the Chapel.

Now do one with two terminal actions duking it out (but not literally the Duke since heís not an action).

I don't think I'm that mysterious. If I was, I'd have chicks all over me and I'd be pretty hip.

I read it as, you buy Chancellor hoping for it to discard your deck, only for you to not want to do so when you actually draw it the first few times.

The only jokes that come to mind are RSP. Specifically, the Politics.

Dear Windows 10:

Tiles are fucking retarded.  What is wrong with you?

It would be nice to pin certain applications to the start menu, and then have them displayed as a simple list (in the same way that Settings, Power, etc. are).  Some site claims that you're able to drag shortcuts to the Start icon and it will pin them to the left side of the menu, but this does not seem to work. 

Anyone know how to do this? 

Also, why do Microsoft developers go out of their way to create really ugly, obnoxious, and annoying user interfaces?

Because they want to be Macs.

That's because this forum isn't online.  You were randomly chosen to unknowingly evaluate numerous advanced AIs.  This forum is one big Turing test.  How are we doing?  Are we convincing humans?

That comment would probably be less scary if i hadn't just watched a slice of life highschool show where the main character is really insane and in truth it's a zombie apocalypse.

AI using WIFOM in a turing test is pretty advanced. almost convincing.

I watched the first episode of that, wondering how far in the zombies would actually show up. Somehow, like in so many other such obvious cases, I missed the twist. Also, I think I can live without another zombie show.
