Bitcoin is forking on or around November 16, 2017, 11:32 am EST based on the SegWit2X code on block height 494784.
However the new altcoin is doomed for a lot of reasons. Simplest is that you can't force a hard fork without near unanimous consensus of the entire Bitcoin community -- users...
Updated for Creators Update: Comprehensive step-by-step for getting Windows 10 under control:
- Disable Telemetry and unnecessary services
- Disable forced updates
- Disable Cortana
- Remove OneDrive
- Remove Windows Store and app bloat
Hey gents, looking for the smallest case that'll fit a ASUS Strix Z270i Mini-ITX and 3-slot GPU (Gigabyte Aorus 1080 Ti, 11.5" long). No 2.5 or 3.5" drive slots needed.
Seems like Ncase M1 might fit the bill but it's unrealistic to acquire.
Released today, looks like a blast.
Engine: Unreal Engine
Mod support: Yes
Price: Robo Recall will be available for free on Oculus Home to all Oculus Touch owners as of today.
Another month, another embarrassment for Microsoft, as Windows 7 *gains* more marketshare while Windows 10 loses it, despite 10 being the only choice when purchasing a new PC. And this will likely continue until Microsoft stops ignoring the major complaints, like the lack of a telemetry Off...
So much for Microsoft trying to get AMD to artificially limit Ryzen to Windows 10, on the basis of some "deep integration" b.s. -- Ryzen board partners aren't having it. They're understandably interested in selling hardware without limiting their market to only one version of Windows.
Here we go again...
Even the pro-Microsoft sites are noticing..
"Windows 7 usage share didn’t change much over the past year. That is a huge problem for Windows 10, and for Microsoft.
After the many issues it had getting the Windows XP installed based moved forward to more modern and secure Windows versions...
Another rough month for Windows 10. The numbers are in, and what should have been a nice boost for Windows 10 adoption - with the holiday season and captive buyers ending up with 10 preloaded on new PCs - was just a whimper as Windows 7 outgrew it by nearly 2:1, and is still more than twice as...
Facepalm. This isn't even people on the Insider fast track builds. This is General Availability.
Soo... if you can't get online.. visit their website.. Got it.
Embarrassing.. But not surprising.
WTF? Windows 10 now actually losing market share
In September, according to NetMarketShare, Windows 10 didn’t just show slower growth, it actually went into reverse gear and lost usage share. Yes, you read that right.
According to the figures, Windows 10...
Just curious what the best bet is for Ad-blocking on Android. Certain sites are getting incredibly annoying with their laggy fullscreen popups on mobile browsers these days.
Edit: I've read good things about Adguard for Android and am experimenting with that now.

Writeup: How to completely avoid upgrading to Windows 10... forever
Another month, another drop in Windows 10's adoption rate from the month prior. This is the real metric that has MS worried while they frantically press release big round numbers of how many total PC's have supposedly upgraded.
And this despite the trojan nagware tactics of GWX on 7 and 8...
This is the definitive one-click tool if you're tired of Windows 10 pop-up nagware infecting your Windows 7 and 8 PC. New version out today as well.
I'm finally ready to retire my 27" Yamakasi, and I'd be curious to hear opinions on the best way to spend $600-$800 on a monitor. Usage is Office/web/gaming. Don't care about 120-144hz uber refresh rates and twitch shooters. I'd be fine with anything in the 60-100hz range. Doesn't need...
Take everything we loved about Windows 7, add the under-the-hood improvements of Windows 8 and 10 but none of the marketing/cloud/phone app/user-tracking crap, and what do you get? Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB edition. I've been evaluating it through our MSDN account at work, and I think it's a...
For me it's Undead Nightmare, the Red Dead Redemption expansion. I play it just about every year around this time, a lot of fun.
Kotaku just wrote a great article on it: http://kotaku.com/the-zombie-game-that-gets-halloween-just-right-1739551326
Destructoid noticed a premature Target ad showing $349.99 as the new price-dropped price. Looks like the price cut it got in Japan will hit the US too as we suspected. Probably not the best news for XB1.
Microsoft has acknowledged multiple issues with the $14.99 DVD Player App for Windows 10 and has suggested some workarounds.
Yes this is on by default even in retail. So much for the apologists that swore the keylogging was "just during the beta/TP and wouldn't be in the retail". SMH.
