    RTX 2070 OR 2080

    The laptop is 1080, but I usually game at 4k on the TV. However, I will probably leave my desktop with its 1080 video card attached to the TV, and use the laptop almost always by itself. I bought the laptop I was looking at with the RTX 2070, I7-9th gen, 32GB RAM, 1 TB NVME SSD, 1 TB standard...

    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?

    Thank you for the replies, I really appreciate the time and effort. I've done some more research and I agree that C# is going to be my friend going forward, even if it means learning it pretty much from scratch.

    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?)

    What I ended up doing was finding a website that showed me how to replace the sticky keys program (which appears when you press shift 5 times) with a command prompt. Once there I was able to enable the admin account, sign on as admin, turn off UAC, and now I can get into the computer normally...

    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

    Well here's what I am trying to do. I'm going to make a program that stores commonly used phrases/blocks of text etc. On the left will be a description of the phrase, and there will be a text box on the right that contains the full text. I wanted each description to be 'ghosted' so that you...

    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...

    I've almost got it working, but I won't be back in the office until Friday ;) I'll update this when I get it working. I could play with it at home tonight, but I'm not in the mood :)

    Outlook 2010 VBA script help

    Thank you PTNL. I'll play with this, but I have no idea what code to add. I imagined being able to add something like Msg.SenderEmailAddress.Contains ("@mydomain.org") to see if the sender's email address contained a particular domain, but it didn't like that.

    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...

    Odd stuttering on new laptop

    I believe I have resolved it. Someone sent me a private message, and his suggestion seems to be working. I did ask him if it was ok to post it here, and no response yet, but I don't see the problem, so here it is. I went into msconfig, clicked the Boot tab, and the Advanced button. Here, I...

    Odd stuttering on new laptop

    Ok, I just did some research on Hyperthreading, and whether I should disable it or not. It seems like i should give it a go. I'll report back after I've done some testing with it disabled.

    Odd stuttering on new laptop

    I've continued playing in a window, while monitoring the task manager, and the stutter has occurred a few times but when i glance at the task manager, everything seems normal. The CPU usage doesn't go above around 20%, ram usage is around 800mb, and the disk activity for this game is 0. I...

    Odd stuttering on new laptop

    Hmmm, well, I am playing Deus Ex at the moment, and the stutter occurred, so I did an Alt Tab to task manager to check the CPU usage, and it was normal. But, I think that's because when this game detects that it's not the active window, it goes straight to pause mode. So, I tried running it in...

    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...
