  • One week on Windows 8

    I also made the transition to Win8 on my main desktop. So far, it's been great with some minor issues I mentioned in my linked post.

    I'm looking forward to the new hardware that will be on the market in the form of tablets or hybrids.  My opinion is that it will be a slow adoption, but it will eventually gain respectable marketshare.

  • Political thread. Difficulty: no raymond postings

    Some people need government help to the point that they will commit suicide if the goverment denies them what they receive.


    Obscene and extreme obviously....

    I don't trust politicians to run much of anything except their own selfish agendas..which is usually to be elected to power and stay in power as long as humanly possible.
    American candidates for office always promise one thing, and end up a huge disappointment after elected; sucked in by a huge bureaucracy where innovation and creative ideas get shoveled under the rug in favor of more useless laws, pointless debates, and unproductive banter about what's best for subjects of the land.  
    Meanwhile most the rest of us live in the real world, subject to the laws and rules enacted by these bafoons.

  • 6 monitor thin bezel array :)

    @SlackmasterK:color me green with envy.

    If I tried to do that, I think my wife would take me to divorce court.

  • SSD , are you ready ?

    I too just got a new SSD. Mine is in a new computer, first desktop I've bought in about 5 years. It's really fast. I can't believe how much a difference SSD makes actually.

  • RTM -> Faking Smart: How to get to VP in 6 short weeks

    Looks like a potential good read.

    What?? not available for my NookColor or for Kindle from Amazon?

    I would have bought it immediately if it was an ebook!


    Navigating office politics/corporate culture is a challenge and an unavoidable obstacle for all of us. Approach it with a good attitude.  There's a lot of BS in it, but you'll find gems of knowledge along the way.

  • TV Series Thread

    1. IT Crowd
    2. Coupling

    4. Mad Men
    5. Walking Dead

    I see a lot of Dexter listed, might have to check that one out. Should I start with Season 1?

  • C'Mon Zune Team .. Really?

    I have four young kids.
    While I wouldn't like them to view a screen like the one presented in this post, educating them on what is and isn't considered tasteful is one of my jobs as a parent. 
    Just the other day we were at the local park, and the kids were reading the graffitti on one of the implements.  Of course there were BAD words in there, and it was an excellent opportunity to explain the difference between good and bad words, etc.  This screen is probably another example of that.
    I won't tolerate that type of language in our house, but I will tolerate using it as an example to educate them.
    They will be exposed to naughty words and inapproriate situations regularily as they enter their teen years and attend our public school system.  I will be on the sidelines reaffirming what is considered good/bad or tasteful/distateful for my family...eventually they will need this power to make their own decisions.
    That said, it would be nice if Zune had an optional filter to screen out a list of known naughty words. We could probably start with George Carlin's list of 7 dirty words.Devil
