    RTX 2070 OR 2080

    I can't decide if my new laptop should have a 2070 or 2080 (not max-q There's a decent price difference, but from what I can see the performance difference isn't that great. I'll be using the laptop mostly on my lap, but occasionally on my desk hooked up to my 4k 43" TV. I have a laptop right...

    What to learn?

    I've been away from programming for a very long time. The last stuff I did was VB.Net and WinForms. I want to get back into it, but with C#. Are WinForms still viable? Or should I put my time into WPF? I'm talking Desktop programs, not web programming. I might even write stuff for the...

    Windows keeps logging off by itself... (UAC issue?)

    When I click on the username, it says "Welcome" and then immediately logs off. I am pretty sure it's because I changed the UAC settings to the third highest setting from the bottom setting earlier, as the problem didn't occur prior to this. I can't get into Windows and I need to urgently. Is...

    Enabling textboxes with code

    For the life of me, I don't know why this isn't working (VB). I have a singe line textbox that is disabled by default. When the program is running, and I click it, I want it to become enabled so I can edit the contents. I can't seem to make it enabled when I click it. I've tried .MouseClick...

    Outlook 2010 VBA script help

    I didn't see how I could do this using the rules functions that Outlook provides, so I'm turning to VBA to achieve what I need. I basically need Outlook to look at each incoming message, and if it's from an approved Domain (of which there about 10), let it go into the Inbox. If the message...

    Nexus 7" or Galaxy Tab 2 10" ?

    I want to get my wife one of these but I can't decide which one. I can't afford the Nexus 10" or that would be my first choice. She has a Kindle Fire from last Christmas but she wants an Android tablet. She's fed up with the Amazon-only crap. She says the Fire is too heavy to be lugging...

    Which CMS to use.

    I work at a Courthouse, which is one of 5 in a Circuit (5 counties). We're upgrading our website with a CMS, but I'm not sure which one to go with (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal). I'm "ok" with Wordpress, but I've never used the others. There could be many users editing and creating content. The...

    Xbox with Kinect: 4Gb or 250GB model?

    I want to buy us a new or used Xbox, but I don't know whether to get the 4GB model or the 250GB model. I don't really care to download movies etc on it. It will be used just for gaming. I also understand I could buy the 4GB and add a HD to it later, correct? What kind of HD? 2.5"? I have...

    Learning C#

    I've been programming in VB.NET for a while, and deem myself to be pretty decent at it. I'd like to get into C#, but I was looking at some books this lunchtime in the local bookstore, and it seems that 95% of pretty much every book (100% in some cases) only deal with the console. I want to...

    Tiger Woods 2008 - which version to get?

    I own a PC, Wii, and a PS2. If I were to buy TW08, which version would you recommend? Is one superior over the others? I am leaning towards PC, because I assume that there would be more online players, and also I can play on my monitor and not have to worry about tying up the TV. Suggestions...

    Oblivion: Where is this quest?
