Guys, it is with a heavy heart that I pass on to you that I just received a call with bad news.

Our friend, and long time helpful soul in the forums here has died at 2 AM, EST, Thursday, Feb. 15th, 2018.

Wiz was a lot of help here, and a long time special friend to me. He tested all my DesktopX stuff, and that is how we met.  He and his wife, Theda have visited us here in Tennessee and we spent time with them in I...

Hey devs. Good on ya for the ability to upload images directly.

 

Now, I just tried and was greeted with an image upload limit reached error.  Am I only allowed so many images in a time slot, per thread, or what?

 

If there are rules and limitations, it would be good to know what they are, please.  TIA..

Hey guys. Who is into VR?

 

I recently set up 2 rigs for VR. One with Oculus Rift, the other with the HTC Vive.

 

I'd be interested in any talk, info, discussion on either system, or maybe any other options for VR.

 

Pros, cons, what have you.  Got anything to say?

I have 8 ram slots, and a quad channel board. I can't get the system to boot with any more than 2 ram sticks installed.  6 empty ram slots just bothers me to no end.

Why are my wallpapers so heavy?  How can I make them lighter without quality issues?

 

Any help appreciated.

I have 3 Stardock accounts. Under 3 different emails. 3 seperate Object Desktop subscriptions.

 

Why are my apps asking for activation when they were already activated and running fine for months?

 

Also, on one rig, all of a sudden, WindowBlinds reports that it isn't correctly installed. It's been running fine for months.

 

Please fix this, Stardock.

My brother is in ICU on life support, prayers needed...he has respiratory failure, lungs full of fluid, high CO2 and low oxygen levels, very confused, and it seems he's been off his meds for diabetes, etc.

 

He smokes, eats too much, generally doesn't take care of himself.

 

They have him at critical status.

 

I would appreciate any prayers and well wishes.

 

EDIT: My brother is now gone.  See my last post.

Hey there moderators, admins, Jafo, etc....

 

Ever since I posted a thread about Harley, I can't access the forums from my home PC.

 

I even made a new login as my wife, no go.

 

I get the egads page, using IE and Chrome portable, even Edge.

I am able to get in from my PC at my inlaw's house, so it must be IP address related?

 

Please help, someone.

I have a question for the power users out there.

 

All bragging rights aside. If you do a little gaming, and a little skinning, is 32 GB of DDR3 ram overkill?

 

I have an 8 core CPU with a 240 GB SSD, and a R9 290 4 GB graphics card. Do I need 32 GB of ram, or is 16 enough?

It is with a sad heart that I tell you that Chelsea has left us today at the age of 12+.  She had a good long life, we did all we could for her.

Due to increasing health problems and old age, we had to help her to go to the Rainbow Bridge.

Chelsea was a 6 month old pup when we rescued her from the local animal control, scheduled to be put down the next day.

 

Chelsea, we miss you. Say hello to Spanky, Precious, Macy, and Santana for us.

I have a PC that was running a triple boot setup just a few days ago. All was well. Was a tri boot system for close to a year now, no problems.

It has an Intel SSD and 2 hard drives.

I decided to lose the Windows 7, and Windows 8.1 and do a fresh install of Windows 10.

Nothing else added, at all.

Now it won't shut down when I hit the shutdown button.

The screen goes black, but the fans and leds keep running. Any ideas as to what could be wrong?

Guys, they say you can't uninstall IE, but this video proves them all wrong!!!

I will likely get one of these!

 

It makes any screen a touchscreen. Awesome, check it out!  Click the external link.

 

Sadly, it only goes up to 15.3 inches.
