ybnrmalatall got a reaction from mudmanc4 in Desktop Screenshots
KDE5 isn't 5 but just "plasma 5", right? I really don't see much of a difference... It still has that overuse of shadows, the popped out, plastic cheap look brought on by the what looks like an almost-transparent film over every panel. Goes for almost every custom theme too because they like that cheap look I guess. Windows 7 at stock was gross too but at least 10 is flat and minimal-ish. I'm still traumatized by the minimize/expand/close button stigma 7 and I guess vista were stuck with. Made it hell for people use wanted to use a custom "basic" theme without aero, since it would stick you with the blue title bar, gross buttons and were unchangeable. lol
How horribly unstable the DE is, it's a wonder people make flavors for their distros based on it. Some even use it as stock.
If you want that "Debian" feel and would like to kill a shit ton of ram, just install Mate... It lets you do more and it's still gnome.
If you are up for it the Debian wiki even shows you how to purge Gnome properly https://wiki.debian.org/Mate ahahahahaha
If you use Gnome extras a lot, install the extras package of MATE. Trust me it's better. I just noticed the pattern.
If you... lol

I wish all this "paying up" would eventually somehow lead to google+ dying just as hard as msn

My name means "Why be normal at all?"
It is my most cherished of all questions.
EDIT: Interesting topics in here I love old threads, back in 2005 I was playing counter strike competitively, never for money but I always loved to play that game with worthy opponents, it becomes like chess if you are all at the same skill level. Just interesting to see when this thread started.
ybnrmalatall reacted to FiberGuy in Getting low speeds reported
It seems the servers being used are from SL(SoftLayer). My ISP's upstream provider is L3(Level3). SL has 80Gb/s of peering with L3 in Dallas, but I am in the Midwest.
It seems SL only has 10Gb of peering with L3 in Chicago. What happening is that my tracert goes from my ISP, to L3 Chicago, to SL Chicago, to SL Dallas. Now, SoftLayer only has a total of 20Gb of their own private bandwidth inter-connecting their datacenters.
When I tracert SL Dallas, the jump from SL Chic to SL Dal is a 24ms hop, while L3 Chic to L3 Dal is only 19ms. Since they take nearly the same path and the speed of light is quite fast, my conclusion is that SL's Chic to Dal link is a bit congested.
It seems to me that my speedtest issues are that L3 seems to be hot-handoff routing.
This is the best conclusion I can come to with my limit Google-Foo abilities.

You need to use the full reply, not quick reply to add attachements. Click "Reply to Topic" at the top or click "More Reply Options" under the quick reply.
Then under the post you'll see attachement options.
On to Norton
It's probably blocking it because there is an auto form submission. There isn't much I can do about that other than tell you to disable software like that before testing... you really don't want things like that running during the test anyways, they often kill your performance. Personally... even if it was free I wouldn't use Internet Security software. It bogs you down in my experience. Made my computer sluggish and frustrating to use. Instantly fixed when the software was removed. ... my personal philosophy, just like in life, stay out of the back alleys and you won't get beaten up and robbed.
I know you aren't saying there is... but there is NOTHING about my methods that are unsafe. Norton is stupid and is probably not allowing other perfectly safe things to happen on other websites for you too. Not to mention the performance loss of everything you process being relayed through Norton. A middle man will always slow you down and waste your time.
... Get AVG free or something similarly light, use Google Chrome (it will warn you of malicious sites), think before you click and you'll be fine. You don't need the burden of an Internet Security suite if you have common sense. --- trust me, I haven't personally had ANY form of virus protection for about 8 years... even before I switched to Mac. I don't get viruses. If I had Internet security for all that time I would have probably lost weeks of my life because it would have slowed me down... time adds up. Do yourself a favor...

Uhh I feel odd posting in this section but I was wondering if people played it so they can share opinions and possibly get MORE people to play it to share even more opinions lol.
Rules of the game- Don't Starve and No real second chances :3
Don't Starve Steam page-

There is NO point to this game other then to survive
They DO NOT hold your hand
You figure it out on your own
IT IS UNFORGIVING AS HELL

This game had a beta and most of these videos are beta trailer updates(hence why so vague) they should give you an idea though -
ybnrmalatall reacted to ZachTylerxx in Hello, Im new here. :)
Hello everyone i am new to this website and did a test. I did a speedtest and it shows the times of my connection id. To the right of the times it shows a star and a Apple symbol. When i move my mouse over it says Dallas, TX US => Ipad Detected Herndon VA. I dont own a ipad or live anywhere relatively close to Texas. Is someone else using my connection or have access to my computer?

I"ll have to try that one out. So far so good.
So good to be free again. The fingers are freed.
And to think it only took a fewwwww years to get it back. But then it did get me in a lot of trouble back then.
But since shug went into hiding it should not be too much trouble ............ oh yeah, momma T is probably still watching me.

ybnrmalatall got a reaction from CA3LE in Editing posts
THis might be an obvious one but the time window to edit posts kinda breaks the LIST topics where OP updates whenever...
Possibly allow it to be infinite edits on an OP's post? infinite time window?
and apparently when I edited this post it created a new topic -_(\

Yes I hear you. I think as a community wide consensus ( by that I mean to say over the years of developing towards what users of all permission levels have pitched a complaint want or need about ) -- the time restrictions came to play.
I remember back when -- someone would run back and change whgat they said after being called out on it lmao -- uhhm yea, like that, but with every restriction comes , or should i say goes some sort of freedom.
For now , one thing i can suggest is to change your view settings, which can place the latest post at the top , thats if you're not using the 'goto last post' features and such, so not sure how that will work out, likely just the same.
Again , editing posts after a longer period of time is in a sense reasonable, at the same time , terrible for SEO in some instances all the same.
None the less I'll being this up on the backside and see if it grows - fair enough ?
