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

Hi
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?

I only need money for food and TV, internet/cable/power/ Zergling rushes
Can subscribers pay fees?

Thanks

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...

It amazes me that my toddler nephew is already a YouTube wiz. He remembers which videos are his favorites and knows how to close/skip ads. He even knows which videos are "inapoopiate" and avoids them. Although he'd rather watch kids play with toys than play with his own, I admire that he's already become this tech-savvy. What do you think about kids being exposed to technology at a such a young age?

Yup! It's all about balance and of course what they're actually doing on the device itself. I'm loving all these programming toys that have been coming out lately.

I think it is good that kids are learning how to use technology. However, I think there should be a balance where the kid learns to use technology as a tool, learns social skills, and spends most of his/her time being active.

I don't think technology is bad. The problem is that even WE as an adults don't even know how to use it properly.

Hi
To my long suffering helpers in this - I finally have a theme that is close to what I hoped for (purchase from themeforest.com)
Some guys in Delhi are helping in Freelancer, but I don't want them to charge me for minor changes.
I have the EDUCON WP theme.
Is there a way for me to change the EDUCON title text to my site's name? It isn't a field in the options page?

Thanks

Hi

The Educon WP them seems to be exactly what I need,
but the documentation "how to" aspect of it is unimpressive. Does anyone know where a great manual for this theme might be?

Thanks

Hi

I downloaded a purchased Educon Wordpress theme from theme forest, and whenever it downloads on Apple OS X, it unzips itself, even if I select, just download the "wordpress-installable file."

I need the installation file to insert as a new WP theme
How do I do this without unzipping?

Thanks

Hi

My Adsense application keeps getting bounced.

I saw today that they don't allow copyrighted images. My blog is political, so I used random photos acquired from Google of Clintons, Bushes, Reagan and Obama, for my header, attached..

Are these TOS violations?
Thanks

Hi

On my latest Freelancer project, the developers did the first part, the blog,
but we agreed that the second block, the video, would be another project.

Does that - in chat - agreement in the FL chat system count as a kind of legally binding agreement? - chat is logged

Thanks

The other day Rourke told me about a game called Screeps where you code your AI units in Javascript. I'm surprised I haven't heard about these types of games before! The reviews say there's a barrier to entry for novice programmers but hopefully that won't scare too many off.

Hi every parents,
Which games do your kids play? Game can help them to improve their awareness and intelligence. My kids usually play Xander - Zulu - Build and Break (an app that helps them to learn about shapes and colours) and they love it so much.
What about your kids? Please recommend some brain games your kids play! Thank you!
