Actually, that part is still believable - Windows does, in fact, have a toaster driver icon built into the operating system. Why? Who knows. But it does. Check it out!
When that boot screen appears, the graphics card is in basic VGA mode. It just takes a few flipped bits to change all the letters around.

>This looks a lot like a memory issue (or at least a glitch, since it doesn't repeat everywhere), a bad video card (I remember having this problem once, turned out to be dying capacitors in the video card) or a corrupted file.

OpenGL would be more than capable and robust enough for modern graphics.
DirectX is proprietary of Microsoft, and Microsoft invested big time to push video card companies and game development companies to focus more on DirectX. The whole DirectX framework, the tools, the documentation, the operating system, all were made so developers would find it easier to develop for this platform. Also don't forget the aggressive marketing (on all the video cards you only hear about DirectX on the front cover, even though all have OpenGL instructions; all the games present their DirectX features, even though some engines work with OpenGL as well). Taken from here.
A full comparison between the two can be found here on Wikipeida.

No, they're not the same. There's an [RSA algorithm](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA_(algorithm\)) and a company called RSA that makes a specific product which was intentionally weakened for money. From what I understand, RSA is the 'more secure' algorithm, as 2048bit suffice as compared to 4096bit DSA which is called secure. But it depends on who you ask and all can be boiled down to sufficient keylength and secure passphrase.

This happened to me on wifi in my apartment, and I was about to call my ISP and flip a shit because I pay for higher tier. I plugged into LAN and it went away.
One thing that helps a lot is going to 802.11n or 802.11ac and using 5GHz isntead of 2.4GHz. Especially in an apartment with lots of thin walls and adjacent units where RF pollution is really high around 2.4GHz - microwaves, bluetooth devices, etc.
EDIT: Not to mention the high amount of wireless routers! (duh) The amount of non-interfering channels is less than the number of wifi routers and everyone is broadcasting really strong signals. Sometimes if you look you can see where everyone else is at and find that no-one is on 1,6, or 11 (why) then you can change your channel and that might help.
You can get support from Canonical (and other companies specializing in Linux)), you just have to pay for it. Otherwise yeah you have to google, but that's how pretty much every OS is.
The card was a Radeon HD 6870.
This was a last resort thing, if it didn't work I would've tried baking it in an oven at 385F for 8 minutes.
I used a combination of 91% and 70% isopropyl alcohol since I didn't have enough to completely submerge the card. After, the parts sat near a fan to increase the amount of oxygen for evaporation. The next day (today), I woke up, applied thermal paste to the card, and I found that the card ended up working the way it used to! However, the one thing I'm worried about is the temps. I was playing Skyrim and ended up reaching 70C, which it normally would max out at 60C before.
Why I did this:
XFX Support said my GPU worked fine and they tested it extensively. I speculated that it was the display ports or it was a bad connection on the PCB with unfortunate timing. I remembered watching a techquickie a couple of months ago about giving your motherboard an alcohol bath and decided to try it on my GPU. I didn't know a lot of people would find this interesting.
Anyways, my friend gave me a GT 545 that runs at lower temperature and is more quiet (Temps). If I ever need more power, I'd swap it out for my 6870; I probably won't need much power since I've diverted to programming. Now and then I play a few games, but it's all in all a distraction rather than something I could be making to expand my portfolio.
If anyone was interested in trying this, please be careful and remove your fan from the heat sink to avoid the fan from being soaked.

Java's the worst offender because all of their updates include this same type of crapware. Everyone should be aware of how to permanently disable this Here's a link which explains how.
The easiest method to do this is
1: open up notepad
2: paste the following into the notepad.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
3: click file, save as...
4: take note of the location that the file is being saved, often desktop or my documents
5: name the file screwjava.reg
6: Pull down the save type as bar and select All Files (.)
7: Click Save
8: Go to wherever you saved the file and run the new screwjava or screwjava.reg file located there.
But seriously, screw you Java, screw you Oracle.

When a wifi network is on the same channel, they will "work together" in a sense to each yield some time to the other networks. WIFI A will stop sending for a moment so WIFI B can send some stuff, then WIFI A will start back up, etc...
When you are on a "close" channel (that still overlaps) it will not do this, and they will instead "shout" over each other, and in that situation everyone looses because they will all keep shouting the same thing again and again until it gets through, each getting louder each time.
This means that you will get better throughput when your neighbors' WIFI is not doing much, but significantly worse when they are.

No, no, when you change another user's password, it warns you then and there that it will render their encrypted content unreadable. KB 290260 has details relevant to Windows XP, but I don't imagine that's changed much since then -- this is just what I could find by a quick google (Ninja edit: I also just found this SuperUser question with pictures).
The only alternatives I'm aware of that would preserve the encrypted data are: knowing the password; or having a password reset disk.
No it's because the file system format of the SD card is not NTFS. Most likely it's formatted to FAT32
>Fat 32 has in inherent limit to the maximum size of any file you load to a disk which is 4 GB.
So you'll need to convert the file system to NTFS if you want to copy anything over 4GB to it.
I don't know compiling this is possible, since I don't have any experience with C# programming.
However your post got me thinking an then googling for ways to start two half sized X servers. Then I have found this link. The idea there is to start one X server but tell it via fakexinerama to generate 2 xinerama screens. In theory this could work if the game you are playing is aware of xinerama screens and supports ~~there~~ these "half-resolutions" without being unuseable.
Also the game has to support being started twice. This could be circumvented by starting the game as different user or by starting the game with an different HOME environment variable.
Another interesting project for realizing this could be fakexrandr.
EDIT: ~~there~~ these

Digging a bit into the problem myself, I've found that there's an hidden switch to disable sponsor offerings in the auto-update installer.
Open the following keys into the Windows Registry Editor (regedit.exe):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft (available only on Windows 64-bit) and create in both of them a new String Value (type REG_SZ) named SPONSORS of value DISABLE (both name and value must be uppercase).
Alternatively, copy and paste the following code into a text file called disable_java_sponsors.reg and double click on it to import these values in your Registry.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Please note that this switch not only disables the Ask.com toolbar installation and prompt, but disables all of the sponsors potentially bundled with the Auto-update setup/Online setup (Google toolbar, Yahoo toolbar, McAfee something, etc...)
Another way, without having to download and rename or create a new .REG file, is to copy and paste the following two lines into an elevated CMD prompt:
reg add HKLM\software\javasoft /v "SPONSORS" /t REG_SZ /d "DISABLE" /f
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft /v "SPONSORS" /t REG_SZ /d "DISABLE" /f
I ran into this problem a little while ago on my desktop. I ended up asking how to fix it on superuser.com.
It turns out, I didn't seat the RAM completely into its socket. It looked and felt like it was in. Windows could see it was there, but it couldn't use it all.
Double and triple check that it's seated completely in the sockets. That may be the problem.
If that's not the issue, refer to your owner's manual. Often times they will mention the maximum limit of RAM the motherboard can handle. On a laptop, it may not be able to hold 12GB.
For a more in-depth answer, here is the microsoft explanation: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa365247(v=vs.85).aspx
However, this is a quick summary:
/ is a switch (and also a directory separator).
\ is a directory separator.
: is a drive designator.
"*" and ? are wildcards used in searching.
" is a way to allow spaces in parameters. (no quotes, but reddit makes a bullet...)
< and > are redirection that allow input and output of a program to come from, and go to, something other than screen/keyboard.
| is a pipe that allows output from one program to be used as input to the next
these special characters could interfere with parsing a command line (or path) if they were in a filename. There is no requirement to delimit the filename in any way (e.g. surround it with quotes or spaces), so encountering such a special char would cause incorrect parsing (i.e is the special char part of the filename or an operator?). – sawdust Dec 27 '13 at 20:41
It is, however, arguable that some of these restrictions are no longer necessary due to the handling of long filenames and quotations marks. \ ? * and " are the only ones really necessary in the current syntax, as the other characters are only useful outside of quotation marks. The exception is : which is only useful as the second character, which could be outlawed while allowing it elsewhere. In other words, no file named A:A letter's story.txt, but no problem with a file named Sarah: My favorite cat.txt

And here's a question on SuperUser (variant of StackOverflow) addressing it and saying the same thing.
You're both right! But /u/vycid is more right. Yes, 2^32 is physically addressable, but that's not how 32-bit OSes address available RAM^1:
> Due to an architectural decision made long ago, if you have 4GB of physical RAM installed, Windows is only able to report a portion of the physical 4GB of RAM (ranges from ~2.75GB to 3.5GB depending on the devices installed, motherboard's chipset & BIOS).
>This behavior is due to "memory mapped IO reservations". Those reservations overlay the physical address space and mask out those physical addresses so that they cannot be used for working memory. This is independent of the OS running on the machine.
>Significant chunks of address space below 4GB (the highest address accessible via 32-bit) get reserved for use by system hardware:
> BIOS – including ACPI and legacy video support PCI bus including bridges etc. PCI Express support will reserve at least 256MB, up to 768MB depending on graphics card installed memory > What this means is a typical system may see between ~256MB and > 1GB of address space below 4GB reserved for hardware use that the OS cannot access. Intel chipset specs are pretty good at explaining what address ranges gets reserved by default and in some cases call out that 1.5GB is always reserved and thus inaccessible to Windows.
I guess it depends if the program is written to use all of the RAM or not.
Edit: Also, x86 (32bit) programs can only use 4gb (well, 3.8GB) of RAM max. source
I think this can be changed by assigning 4GB chunks of RAM to the program - ie, it thinks it's accessing the max ram it can, when in reality, if needs something else in RAM the OS assigns another 4GB chunk to it. Honestly - don't take this for granted, this is something I vaguely remember reading something about a while ago.
Edit: Accidentally a word.
Game settings should be placed in user editable configuration areas, not in the main program files location, thats been Microsoft's recommendation since before Vista and which is why so many apps went nuts with UAC prompts when vista hit.
Settings should be saved under user profiles, not program files Thats been the guideline since Vista.
They need to start providing overridable settings in the user folder.
>I also think the HDD will die much faster since they are not designed to operate at an angle, certainty not 90 degrees.
http://www.howtogeek.com/128397/does-hard-drive-orientation-affect-its-lifespan/ > The bottom line: as long as the drive stays safely mounted in the case and properly cooled there is little concern for excessive wear.
Edit: The original superuser question:
Does Cortana still work? Ask her to open the control panel. Select the Fonts icon (folder with an A on it) and then the first link to the left is the font settings. The button on the screen will restore default font settings. Maybe that'll work.

I bet this is the offender - you can either disable the scheduled task or not allow maintenance tasks to wake the computer in the Action Center. Also, you can confirm what woke the computer by going to the Windows\System area of the event log and filtering on 'Power-Cfg'. It should show entries when the computer woke from sleep and what the wake source was.
> The effect is pretty small. Where you might run into it is in high latency links (think satellite) where the MTU (maximum transfer unit) is small, which magnifies the impact of the larger overhead IPv6 requires. That's an edge case. The other area where you'll see impacts is when you're doing 6 to 4 translations in the network path, as that always takes some time. But if you had a pure v6 path to that other v6 host such latencies won't be an issue.
> In these days of TCP Offload Engines coming built in to more and more network stacks the impact is even less likely to be noticed. If any. In fact, it may even be faster in those cases.
> Why is that larger header not as much of a factor as you think? That's because the designers of v6 took some of the lessons of v4 and built things better. Most importantly for cross-internet communications the address fields are handled much more efficiently in routers than in v4, which improves speed of v6 packets through routers as compared to their v4 cousins.
> When it comes to same subnet communications where router tables aren't a concern, each packet requires less raw computation. There is one less checksum to validate (Ethernet checksum, no IP checksum for v6, but TCP/UDP checksum is still required) which saves small amounts of time. And on special networks, the ability to have VERY large packets can further save processing.

Malformed dates in the series
Embedded = or '.
From the 'Save as' dialog, choose 'Excel Workbook (*.xlsx)' as the format.
You're hitting the max row / column limit of an obsolete file format.
If you want a version of xlsx that loads large workbooks more quickly, try 'Excel Binary Workbook (*.xlsb)'.

Note that this is an archaic method that hasn't worked for years. See this discussion for further information.
The Core M may perform as fast as a Core i5 from a few years back, but since the Macbook has no fan it can't sustain that performance for long.
At some point the CPU will get very hot and will start doing thermal throttling to cool down by reducing the processor's performance.
That is not a problem for general use (browser, office, etc) unless you are performing heavy sustained tasks like gaming, encoding, etc. If you do those kinds of things frequently you shouldn't buy a 12'' Macbook anyway.
Check your overscan ( AMD ) or scaling ( Nvidia ) settings.
This SuperUser discussion addresses your question about the image size and why it's growing (I think). For your use case I would strongly suggest looking at something like Mandrill's transactional email service, or MailChimp's email campaigner. Both have robust free tiers of service available.
FYI - deleting an email from the Outlook 2013 new email pop-up was removed in Windows 8.1, not 10.
I don't know why, either.
I have the same problem.
So far I've found that it's likely caused by a faulty driver, which I'm currently investigating.
The steps I'm currently undertaking are these: http://superuser.com/questions/533135/98-100-memory-use-no-process-uses-more-than-25mb
Will update when I have more news, because this is making me very frustrated.
I have succesfully fixed the issue (for me at least) by simply updating my network drivers from Killer. Download here: http://www.killernetworking.com/support/driver-downloads -> Install (requires 2x restart) -> immediate effect with only 10-20% memory usage whereas before I would have 90-99%.
If the above doesn't fix it for you, try manually disabling the network data usage driver (the culprit) by following these steps:
Open up "regedit" and go this key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Ndu
Change the "Start" value to 4 (to disable it).
This sounds like you have bad VRAM. I had a similar problem a few years back.
Weird thing was, the red dots were showing up when I took a software screenshot, which meant the computer actually thought it was part of the 2D canvas.
I mean, he could probably keep the ddr3 ram and not notice the difference. 1333mhz is not a noticeable difference from 1600mhz.
Remove the folders either by fixing permissions and deleting them(1);
or by using ubuntu and using the following code(2):
sudo rm -rf <path to directory to remove>

There's a lot more to it than the frequency of the sync. Your older LCD panel would have had a poorer response time.
In fact, here is a discussion involving John Carmack (long time game developer) about how your CPU send a packet to the other side of the planet faster than it can make your display update! The math holds up.
I've removed cortana manually on my windows 10 VM-s some months ago, on v1511.
You can't remove it with powershell even as system(root equiv).
Now you have! Here's someone who's had the same problem. It'll block the installer itself even though the program runs fine if you manually install it.
It barely adds a millisecond per 100 000 FS calls. I wouldn't call that affecting performance.
Don't believe me? Use Process Monitor from sysinternals.
The only scenario where junctions affect performance is during directory listing operations (for deletions for example), which games do very little or none of.
Well, a motherboard is the main board that can have daughter boards so it might be terminologically correct for apple to have just a logic board since everything is soldered to a single board.
So part of this subreddit is to help people with specific tasks but also to empower the users so I'll go into a bit more detail than needed.
One of the biggest hurdles to overcome when using Linux is the terminology and knowing what to search for. The setup your college uses is called a 'Captive Portal'. It redirects all requests for web pages back to an internally hosted web sever with a login form page. The technologies involved range from RADIUS for the login form to WISPr (short for Wireless Internet Service Provider Roaming) for the hotspot authentication.
Knowing these pieces of information allow you to search for a plausible answer. Of which I have two possibilities.
This link, specifically the second response and this link which is a package for authenticating agasint WISPr via the command line.
I hope this helps.
EDIT: So I've been downvoted, probably because of the way this reads. I apologise if this comes across as patronising, I did intend for it to just be a learning experience.
Hi, author here. Not exactly. I explained it in more detail in a thread here but basically, we found evidence that this was occurring in older versions than the 10525 build. The announcement post you're referring to uses some vague language and doesn't specifically say that this feature was added in build 10525, or just improved in 10525.
However, we did find a Stack Exchange thread from a user before the new build was announced who claimed he got word from Microsoft that this exact behavior was intended. It was later updated with the info about the new build. Additionally, most of our staff tested it on their computers. The System process would only take up <1MB of RAM until you load it up with a ton of memory-hogging applications (video games, photo/video editing software, roughly ten minutes of browsing with Chrome, etc.) and then it starts ballooning.
The way Microsoft announced it was weird, but by all accounts this seems to be active in more than just the newest Insider build. Either that or everyone's computers is bugging out in a consistent way across multiple use cases in exactly the same way and in a manner that's consistent with a future feature. You know, either or.
Here's a Microsoft Forum mod saying "No" to dual-booting.
The upgrade is an in-place upgrade, and 10 doesn't come with its own key. It uses your 7/8 key, then saves it as a 10 key in the Windows Store (new delivery system for OSs).

If you did a fresh install then there's no easy way to move the installed programs because you can't easily move over their registry entries individually. Just keep reinstalling. If you research the programs you can usually find a way to just copy over the settings without redoing them but it might end up being more effort than just redoing them.
For deleting Windows 7 on the HDD, you can but it can get complicated and a bit dangerous (in terms of data loss, but if you are perfectly sure where all of the files you want to keep are, then everything else is deletable). First you'll need to go into the Folder View settings and make sure you can see Hidden and System files. Then delete everything you don't need, including the Windows and Boot folders. But you'll probably be stopped by permission errors.
You can follow these instructions to fix this and be able to delete them. http://superuser.com/a/324545
But you have to be a non-administrator and but granted the right privilege. Wait, was that for junction points? Or symlinks? Because apparently they're different, and not even fully supported by the OS.
It's no wonder no one uses this garbage.
Because each bit on an SSD has a limited life, specifically reads and writes, even more so than an HDD. So when you defrag, you end up losing a ton of life on basically the entire SSD. Not only this, but the SSD has firmware that handles data placement so well that fragmentation is never an issue. Oh and Windows doesn't understand how data is stored on an SSD, so it reports fragmentation wrong.
Your machine is configuring its hostname via DHCP along with its IP address.
You can change this behavior in /etc/hostconfig.
Do you have a source for this? It's always been, to my knowledge, that usb mice/keyboards are actively polled.

My god you sounds exactly like all the Docker evangelizers without knowing what it exactly is.
>Docker containers wrap a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries
Docker shares the kernel with the host which means that if there's a kernel bug then say good bye to all your container.
In fact; here you go. More links just a google away:

I've experienced it myself on several occasions, but a quick google-search you can find others with similar issues. For example on the middle of this page: http://superuser.com/questions/756669/how-to-detect-if-a-usb-port-is-3-0-or-2-0/756671

I've implemented the same fix and haven't seen any update popups in days.
Form what I read there is a macro feature in notepad++ which was used to send a message about free speech, and free expression when Charlie Hebdo was attacked. Kind of ironic given his stance on this.
Linux already does this as part of how it handles file systems. Almost all of your free memory will be used to cache files from disk. Writes also go to memory first and are periodically committed to disk. You could increase the commit interval from the default to something larger like every few hours, but that would effect the whole file system. But you could create separate partitions for where the log files go and mount them with a high commit interval. Keep in mind you will lose data in a crash or sudden power loss, even if you go with the ram disk idea instead. If your system is stable and you have a UPS, it should probably be fine though.
