Computer games are video games played on a personal computer, mobile device or video game console. Their defining characteristics include a lack of any centralized controlling authority, a greater degree of user control over the video-gaming hardware and software used and a generally greater capacity in input, processing, and output.

Can I annihilate this and put my privacy policy link there? or just above it?

What’s the first thing you install—or uninstall—on a new system?
The first thing I install on a new PC system (other than OS & drivers) is usually a tie between the Chrome browser and Blizzard's Battle.net client, closely followed by Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. On my Mac, I skip straight to Lightroom and Photoshop, since I'm happy with Safari and don't try to game much on that system (that's what the PC is for ;-)

As for uninstalling, usually nothing... My last PC was a custom build so there wasn't any junk on it and Macs are great about not having anything I don't want.

Yeah, definitely got to take care of all the OS and driver patches first! What do you do after all that?

I don't install PCs for a living, and only do that for select family members: myself, children, wife and mother in law.
Everybody gets Chrome, Office and Adobe Acrobat reader.
Then for each their tools of trade. This is the list of first installations as happened during the past year.

For me:
* Virtual box, Git, JDK, Python, Jetbrains IDE, curl, whois, dig, jq, notepad++, skype, mumble and Eve Online

For my mother in law:
* OE Classic

For my wife:
* Photoshop, Invision, Premiere

For my son:
* Minecraft, Netflix

For my daughter:
* Matlab, Netflix

Hi

My blog has a spot in it's theme to paste a GIF in it like a title GIF. I changed my blog's icon to the image I want, but it didn't change in the spot I want. How do I change the other title GIF? I don't think it is the logo.

Hi

I have created a media upload website.
Anyway, I'm concerned that my dear users might upload songs or videos, only to have them stolen by renegades and losers
I applied for trademark of my website name today on legalzoom.
I once heard that having a provable version of art, eg, a recording/book in a mailing, is as good as copyright.
Can I have a text field for my artist 'Megatrons' to say for their song 'home invasion'
" Copyright @2017 Megatrons"
and that have meaning, legally?
Thanks
What should I consider?

Currently, I'm trying to learn a bit about Unreal Engine 4; I've always loved video games and have wanted to learn how to make them. The videos that Epic Games have made for their engine are pretty good (https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Videos/index.html), but does anyone know of other resources for learning about UE4?

Subject of the week | What sparked your initial interest in the tech industry?
My interest in tech is easily traced back to computer games. My dad brought home an Atari 800 one day and it was the coolest thing ever! Even though I was no doubt terrible at the games I played on it, the whole thing was so much fun that it instilled a life-long love of computers. I remember things like some sort of Frogger knock-off called Preppie (was about a golfer trying to cross the street to retrieve his golf ball), the racing game Pole Position, trying to race through Oregon Trail during my elementary school's 50 minute computer class (we didn't have any drives to save our game to, so the time crunch became the real challenge!) and then adventure games like King's Quest and Space Quest.

Later on, when I got a TI-82 graphing calculator, my initial love of computer games carried through and I'd make simple little programs for things like dice rolling, a text adventure game with a rudimentary combat system, and yes, even useful things for class like a quadratic equation solver.

But it was really those early video game experiences that made me want to work with computers.

Genealogy.  I needed something to record the family history, data etc so I needed a computer.

Was at university so did the computing course and all they had were Macintosh 512K and Macintosh Pluses.  At the same time a friend worked in the computer business and sold me a clone XT 10 MHz 640K RAM 20 Mb hard drive that was um accidentally loaded with all sorts of software.  Turned on this XT and this C:\ > stared back at me.  And I stared back at that.

Next day at university bought a big thick book on DOS.  During lectures and note taking I read that book.  Went home and started typing in commands.  And found Leisure Suit Larry (I knew it was there).  18 hours later ...

Hi
In my music, opinion blog, that supports user uploads, with Adsense income,
can I say that my users may only enter one of my contests if they are "considerably active and respected members of the blog?"
Does Google let publishers go who require bloggers to participate?

Hi
To test my media website, I'd like to use music video mp4's and mp3's. ( as many as possible)
Maybe film students keep them somewhere, to compare? They make tons. K-12 Schoolers?

I can't use No Doubt, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Ed Sheeran, Kevin Federline  and Beastie Boys, New Kids, apparently.

Google only finds converters and streams. Aren't they more trouble than it's worth?

What would you say?

Thanks

Hi

To test my astonishing new web site, I need some links to a few music videos mpg's or mp4's, both file types will help. Any will do, even Kevin Federline. They are hard to find.
I'd prefer direct links, not needing to sign up for anything.

Also, the freelancer helping me has only catered for mp3 and mp4 uploads.

How can I tell him, this is not enough, do wav and AVI also along w mp3? Is that correct - do amateurs use mp4 and AVI? I used wav and mpg, I assume it is most needed?

Thanks

Paperspace coupled with Parsec gets me a really good cloud gaming experience for times when I'm away from home.  You can also skip Paperspace and just set up your gaming rig as a Parsec host (I don't because my current rig/connection isn't the best for streaming.  Also, I don't feel 100% comfortable with a potential backdoor into my system). AWS/Azure also work, but Paperspace is cheaper and a bit easier out of the box.

A friend has a Dell Inspiron 11 3162 that was acting up & once I got past the dog-chewed power cable, I found there's basically no disk space left on it! It appears that the HD is soldered to the mobo, so no upgrade options there. Looking at it with Treesize, the biggest space hogs are the WinSxS directory (4.2GB) & Origin Games (8.3GB). It has a couple of USB ports & a MicroSD & I planned on getting a 32 or 64 GB card or USB drive & set game preferences to use that for storage or would I need to re-install games to that location? Other than eating up one off the 2 available USB ports, any advantage to SD card vs USB drive?

I miss user manuals
Subject of the week | Describe past technologies you miss.
While not quite a technology per se, it's certainly related to tech: what I really miss is the instruction manuals that used to come with software, hardware and especially, video games. That's right, I'm someone that used to RTFM.

Sure, now there's tons of integrated help, information available online, and books from 3rd party publishers, but nothing quite compares to when I used to pore over the manual that came with the product. I loved how it provided a convenient way to learn, get a solid overview of all the features, and pass the time while waiting for the install to finish. And video games were the best of all because there'd often be extra story details, artwork and more. I can even remember how I'd often go pick up a new game at Best Buy during my lunch break and read through the manual while eating, just biding my time until I'd finally get home after work to play.

These days, you're lucky if you even get a single slip of paper—and it's usually just an abbreviated license agreement!

What about you? Any fond memories of user manuals?

No matter what we all say, with digitalization and all, manuals will always be an important part of every product. What if something happens to your computer and you don't have access to the downloaded pdf? Yes, you may have it stored on your iPad or phone, but wouldn't it be much easier if you had it nearby?Of course, there are many opinions in this regards.

Hi
I've found some different opinions around, and I'm going to ImageMonster tomorrow morning to outline the logo for my site

It must be made for 200x100 , 200x200, and 70x70? Is it most often used at 400x400?

Is there a good preparation, advice page for logos? I'm not certain that my ideas will be discernible at 70x70

Thanks

Let's say I make a non-profit website. That means it has no commercial interests.
I red that the executives can make a nominal fee. That's good enough for me. What, less than $5,000 / month?

Oh man, I hope they didn't lower it to 5mph.  I hadn't heard that on Silph Road yet.  Last I remember folks there were saying the speed cap was 11mph.  People who use bicycles for transportation were throwing a fit about the 11mph.  

It does a check every 2-5 minutes, and bases how far you go off of that.
Yes, exactly.  There was a glitch I ran into, and others confirmed it as well, that there is a way to incubate eggs in the time that the calculations are being made where all of a sudden the eggs would hatch (2.0km ones) without even being walked!  I think they eventually patched that.

I also have the problem where my connection switches between 3g and LTE so often that it's always getting disconnected and not registering the location changes as often as it should.  So half the time (or more) when it tries to do that location check it doesn't register any changes.  It seems to know where I am on the map, but it's losing its log of how far I've gone or something.

I was running long distances (1-3 miles) in a straight line and barely getting 1k before I stopped playing.

Hi,

So, I reached the PGL opening season playoffs in Starcraft.

Starcraft Remastered is out, but I'll only play it if there are lots of players.

This is a granddad game, let's face it.

Does it have any traction? Do I need my Starcraft 1 CD?
Thanks

It's certainly possible, with MIDI notes,

but has anyone developed virtual guitarists for DAW's that can play a melody, solo as well as a Brian May or Stone Gossard? Queen, Pearl Jam - I had 'virtual guitarist' for one of them, but it could have been better, maybe I hadn't explored enough..
What might I consider? For strumming, as well? I have Logic Pro, Cakewalk also.

Thanks

I'm starting to feel the itch to upgrade the CPU in mine... It's a tough call though, since I'd also need to update the motherboard to support the newer CPU's—and my overall system performance is still pretty great. And if I've got to swap out the motherboard too, then I start getting tempted to change other things, like the case.

Honestly though, what I dread most is dealing with making sure my Windows licensing doesn't get messed up in the hardware change...
