    The guys that originally made Descent (1/2/3) + Freespace are back, and trying to launch a new 6dof game called Overload. It is supposed to be launching next spring, but they have a kickstarter going right now to try to make it better (more levels, better visuals, multiplayer, etc...), so if you remember playing those old games, and want some more, jump on in to make it the best it can be. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/revivalprod/overload-the-ultimate-six-degree-of-freedom-shoote They also have a teaser version up on Steam if you want to see what they have done so far. http://store.steampowered.com/app/450220/

    Any Thoughts On Windows 10

    I've been running it since the day it came out on my Surface 2 Pro, and thus far the only issues I have encountered aren't that big of a deal if you are running it on a gaming PC. Thus far, the only things that have bugged me are: The keyboard cover I am using kept it from sleeping, so the battery would die super-quick. Fixed this with a setting in the device manager. The wifi adapter drivers randomly will not re-load after waking the computer up from sleep. Haven't yet been able to determine a fix for it, but since Win10 boots really fast, it is a minor annoyance. Certain changes to the tiles in the Start Menu only seem to apply on a reboot. I can re-arrange the tiles, but adding or removing them doesn't seem to take until after I restart Windows. I don't have any opinions on it regarding the desktop yet, as I am planning on doing a clean install as the Desktop is getting to the point where I want to do that, and I just haven't had the time yet. Thus far, though, I haven't seen any reasons to not go from 7 to 10 on it.

    Help With Trojans

    Feel like doing an OS reinstall? That is the solution that I have had to do for multiple computers, especially if you cannot track down the source of the infection, as there is usually a rootkit buried deep inside some system file. Not sure what all Anti-malware tools you have tried, but the best of the bunch for me has been Malware Bytes, and the Kaspersky Trojan scanner/removal tools (usually TDSSKiller, but a few of the others have been useful in specific instances).

    Amd Vs Nvidia

    I am running the latest Geforce Experience as well, and have never had any issues. Were you doing anything specific when the BSODs happened, like gaming? I find it odd that creating a new desktop profile would fix it, although game-specific settings in the nvidia driver for that user profile could possibly cause them...

    Political Donations Via Corporations

    It gives a lot more power back to the people when this happens, and the wealthy candidates don't have that much more of an advantage here. The party that is in power, and passed this bill (law) is the NDP. Most of the people we voted in for the NDP this last election tend to be average citizens, not necessarily the wealthier ones. The lady representing my area is an average mother, lives in a small, older home with her family, and drives an average car (I can't remember the model, but I believe it was from the early to mid 2000's). We just have a provincial election on May 5 of this year, in which we voted in the NDP. Previously, the party that was in power was the PCs, who tend to be more pro-business, and are usually wealthier business owners themselves. Prior to May 5, the PCs had 70 seats and the NDP only had 4. However, the PCs have said and done a few things in the past few years that have annoyed the common citizens of the province, and took a beating in the last election. They only got 10 seats, and the NDP got 54 (we have 3 other parties as well), so as you can see, having money doesn't make it easier to win the election. I think part of the difference (coming from someone who only observes the US political system, so take this with a grain of salt...) is that we have parties that are actually fighting for peoples votes. It isn't as simple as just throwing a bunch of money at marketing in the year coming up to the election, and hoping for the best. Also, the parties are different from each other, so we have choice. This keeps our government more accountable to the people. Another difference is that we vote once, instead of having those primaries and all that other stuff where the candidates basically just game the system to get themselves elected by manipulating the voting regions. There is a bit of that happening here, but it is harder to pull off. Something else to consider is that we also have limits on the amount that an individual person can donate per year to their political party, so the rich can't just effectively buy their votes that way.

    Tom Clancy’S Ghost Recon Wildlands

    I love how the "Stealth" option involves big explosions... I really hope this has massive multi-player coop, that would be sweet to have like 16 guys hit a base in a coordinated strike.

    Dx11 Hardware On Dx8 & 9 Games

    WadCutter, from someone rocking a decent GOG catalog, those aren't old games... I have never had issues related to the DirectX version, when playing old games. Ive even fired up some good old DX3 games on some DX10 hardware. The biggest thing I have issues with regarding these old games is that stupid DRM garbage like SecureROM, as old versions of that have issues with newer optical drives (such as DVD or BluRay drives).

    Using A New Ssd To Replace My Main Drive. Need Help!

    Not sure if it still works, but with Steam, what I would do is move the program folder (ie: add .bak to the folder name, or move it to a different drive). Then, hit install and start the download. Now quit steam, copy the files into the newly created folder, open steam again. It should then verify the files and not have to download them again.

    Recommended Ssd

    Darn, I wish I was in the US... Great deal on a great SSD.

    Recommended Ssd

    I agree with blind, with one minor note. If you go Samsung, I would go with the Pro series. The EVO's are TLC, and don't have nearly as long of a lifespan as the Pros do.

    So, as a Canadian, I have to ask, what constitutes a cold wintery Australia? Because I am pretty sure that your usual winter is probably considered warm around here...

    Pc Help And Remote Support

    Don't uninstall any of the old MS Updates, it takes a bit of work to track down which ones have been replaced, and which ones are still needed. Besides, most of the superseded ones don't take up any space anyway as the newer update just replaced the files created by them. The best option, if you need space, is to uninstall any programs you don't need anymore. This includes doing custom installs of things like the Adobe Creative Suite (ie: if you only use Photoshop and Dreamweaver, you can select Custom on the install wizard, and unselect things like Illustrator...). The other thing to do is what Zoe referenced, open My Computer, right click on the drive, select the "General" tab, and run "Disk Cleanup". It will give you a number of suggestions of what you can remove to free up some space.

    Nomination For New Computer

    Depends on the power supply. Some of them are only 120, but most of the good ones are capable of switching between 120 and 240V, either automatically or by a switch on the back. You might need to get a different cable, though, than the one that comes with it.

    Time Zone

    I think the time on the server itself is off. It seems to slowly be losing time.
