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.

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?

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

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

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

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

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

Hi

I've been trying to install this visual composer plugin for Wordpress. All the built-in methods aren't doing it,
and I noticed I can install from an upload,
but I don't want to trust any dog in the neighborhood! Some people have tried to make me pay for it!

Is this DL safe  ?   here

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?

Hi

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?
Someone in Australia stole a domain I owned previously through legal bulldozing.
Does this protect me only in America?

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?

hi
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?

Thanks

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.
