Re: Ascension Pt1

I didn't think linear acceleration would do it, but maybe it can.

Straight from Theory of Relativity: you cannot tell the difference between [constant] acceleration and gravity.

That is what "linear acceleration" [more]

Re: "Ascension" - Starts Tomorrow Night

I'm taping all three "nights" on Wednesday, but it will probably be Friday afternoon before I get a chance to watch it.

Re: The Librarians

I also liked it. It's a nice fantasy, not too heavy for watching before going to bed.

Re: WiFi wanted

I have my PC physically attached to T-W modem.
I now have a new tablet. The nearest available WiFi is 8 miles away - and the library is has limited hours.

Re: desktop again.....

In truth the power here in the condo in very stable and rarely goes out but best to cover the possibility.

Re: The Game - Anyone watching?

I have been capturing it to the DVR but so far I haven't watched any episodes. It's a six-episode miniseries so I thought I would allow the episodes to stack up before watching any.

Re: CCleaner

CCleaner can't clean up files currently open, which means that if you have a browser open, it CCleaner usually can't do anything with that browser's files (cache, history, cookies).

Re: Disabling Win 7 library

But there is a library called Documents which includes the three folders, My Documents, Public Documents and Shared Documents.

Re: Doctor Who 100414

So far I have found the season a disappointment: it's watchable, but just doesn't have the excitement nor capture my interest like Seasons 1-7 of this 2005 reboot.

Do you suppose the BBC is trying to kill off this franchise by getting the [more]

Re: Laura's Mysteries Yuck

I barely made it through that first episode.

I think I made it about 1/3rd the way through the first episode. The turmoil of the kids and the total loser of the father was a big turnoff for me, and there are better cop procedural [more]

Re: Avast Grimefighter

I tried it, it wasn't compatible with my machine, and Avast refunded the purchase price.

It doesn't allow you to see what it is about to do, only after it had done its work.

Phone and TV are from other providers

Is the TV a "Smart TV" that can stream some Internet content (like Netflix)? If so, it might be doing some software updates or checking in even when it is "off". Likewise for a [more]

I have a desktop computer with Windows 8.1 on it and although it works flawlessly while I am using it if it sits idle for 10ish minutes or more it crashes, not occasionally, but always.
