Hi

I bought the Wordpress Newsmag template bec it looked just what I needed.

I cant seem to load in my title banner, but if I look at example pages around, they have lovely title banner room.

How are they loading in these title banners / images in the NewsMag template?
I mean if it's a news magazine template, you'd think this was easy, but the template menu is lame?

I already asked a little about this, but my dad heard about me preparing to pay legal fees to do this - $500 consultation, and got upset

He insisted I register my blog's name online.

I found

trademarkplus .com

Is this a safe / recommendable way to do it?

Hi

I have no doubt that these targeted email blast websites have dubiously acquired emails in their lists.
They claim it is double checked and such. Is that possible?

Maybe I can hope for something good. Is this Political email list service reasonably trustworthy?

Hi

The last time I made a blog, a few years ago, it was wordpress for page design/content, adwords for placing text ads and adsense for placing ads.

Has anything changed, ads, content, income?

What is the right way to do everything today? Anything new I should know about?

Thanks

I have written a ton of music, say 70 songs.

I am 39 years old. I'd like to get my music out there. I am not inclined to try and do the band thing *again*

I know the money in music is gone, now that CD's aren't sold.
Taylor Swift makes 0.004 cents a spin on a tube or something, right?
I'd just like to get my music out there. Are there any options for me?
I live in Wilmington, NC, which is called 'Wilmy-wood' - Hollywood East! lots of TV is shot here.
Can unknown people walk up to  a producer and say, wanna listen to my stuff?

I'm experiencing this problem from a few days and I can't seem to get a solution for it. Basically when I'm playing any game the PC just completely freezes with a stuttering/repeating sound (sometimes goes away and sometimes not). I've checked for the temps of CPU and GPU with MSI Afterburner so overheating is not the case. What I found in the event viewer is that 2 events are frequent.
1 - (The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.). These are alot.
2 - The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}
 and APPID
{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}
 to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.
Now, as I said these event are frequent means they're not only 1 or 2 but they're so many. The second event is just of the same time my pc crashed when playing game. Few days back it was only with COD:AW & Rise of the TR but today it happened with Fifa 15.
Please help me fix this issue,  I don't wanna reinstall windows at this point.

Hey Guys.

I have a game called "World In Conflict" it was released back in 2007 and supports DX9-10, it wont launch no matter what i try, its just hangs for a second and crashes with no warning or error or Event viewer log of any kind.

It is the first time i install it on Windows 10, i tried the following:

Change myDX10Flag to 0. ( a setting in the games option file in My documents.)
Gave full permissions and remove "Read Only" from folders.
Ran as admin.
Tried to change resolution.
Tried to install DirectX again including DirectX 9 June 10.
Tried Reinstalling the game/Verify cache.
Disabled Display scaling option in compatibility.
Gave it a compatibility of Windowx XP,Vista,7 (only in windows XP compatibility it shows the splash screen where it all turns to small cubes, but then crash again right after with no warnings.)
tried replacing d3d9.dll
Tried reinstalling graphic drivers.

It seems There's an issue with directX or some sort of a graphic initialization problem.

First off let me start with computer specs:

Intel I7-2600K Sandybridge
Nvidia GTX 970
16GB DDR3 1600MHZ (2x8GB BallisticX)
2TB HDD
500GB SSD - STEAM games are located on this drive to improve performance

I have run task manager and process explorer to see if when I am playing the game my memory or CPU is being eaten up but it's not. I will have frame rates drop to 20-30FPS in older games like Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike Source. I can barely even manage 30FPS in Battlefield 4 (haven't tried BF1 on PC). My graphics settings on the games are pretty much maxed out with VSYNC off but at 1440x900 resolution.

It could be me but with those specs on those older games I expect to be getting 60FPS smooth if not over 100FPS considering. Am I missing something or are my specs bottle necked in some form I don't realize?

Hi

In Starcraft 2, the better players can build a base at their natural expansion immediately, but when it's me, it expects Vespene gas.

How do I expand instantly without gas?

Hi

I saw one Youtube or something video advertisement that never showed a [skip] button to skip the ad. The ad played all the way though - 15+ seconds

How is that possible, a higher payment?
What are video ad buys done on  - clicks or impressions? both? expensive? recommendable?
How is a long video ad done?

Hi

It's so annoying if I have to drive to W.Fargo to ask for my checking balance, or send money to people.

I'm concerned that hackers can enter online banking and wreak havoc.

Is this a valid concern?

Is online banking solid?

Thanks

Need a script that will:

1. start a program in:  D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DARK SOULS III\Game\DarkSoulsIII.exe
2. wait 5 Seconds, then STOP the Service: "windows management instrumentation"
3. Every 60 seconds check if DarkSoulsIII.exe is running. If it is do NOTHING, but loop back to the 60 second check.
4. If it is NOT, then START the service "windows management instrumentation"
5. Kill script. Done.

Thanks for everyones help. I am thinking this is pretty simple, but examples I find similar are for more complex scripts which is actually making doing the above hard to know how.

Thanks again.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

             I am interested in checking out any online link or links for a game console which will be compatible with a VIZIO (Model D32h-C1).  The game console I have in mind will need to have preloaded 80's classic arcade games like PacMan, Donky Kong, etc.  I am not sure if this is technically feasible, but, I would love to have the controls for the retro games to be wirelessly manipulated.  

             In closing, if there are any questions regarding this question, please feel free to let me know.  I am not a heavy gamer, so, I might need to provide further clarification with respect to my expectations.  I am hoping to keep the cost within the range of $40 to $50 if possible.  

             I look forward to hearing from everyone.

            George
