Once you learn the key position and function you just practice to make that seem as every day something.
You begin to feel where everything is so you don't need indicators any more.

Its like an synthesizer keyboard, there are no notes on it.

@ Instant Mix
You wouldn't get offended if some one said - i like my coffee with suggar, than why get offended with some thought inducing sentence?
It should be clear the older you are that the way some people made things today is not gonna benefit every one and you need to be prepared for those things. Bad schooling system where professors and teachers dont spend enough time with their students is one.
I personally had too much theory and too little practice more than 90% of my schooling and hated it. That got me into thinking that i should do things my self and inform on what to expect in the future from what professor/term.
Some things i don't even like to do, like for example Java Script, but i still sat down and practiced only to make it easier to finish that term and be able to invest more time into something else.
Being aware that you can not score 100% on something if you don't understand it enough should be familiar to every one.
Even though i can easily understand practical problems i always had trouble with social science like sociology, economics and mother language. I found it extremely annoying and time taking to study it. Especially sociology and similar terms where they write about things like humans know nothing about anything. I felt retarded reading that. But i clenched my teeth and tried to give it enough understanding just to get an passing grade of 55/100.
I failed a few times on those terms, even though i did try to study it, but in the end i focused a lot of my free time just to get it over with. Some of those things from economics are very important for personal business and i am glad i did study a bit of that.
It might seem absurd that some one can get vectors and formula logic pretty easily but be a total "butthead" about something as simple as Sociology and Economics where you just need to hard learn all the shit thats written, but i hate to study something that has so little logic in common with me. It is annoying. Example (or a try to write one :D )
  • Humans in groups are called an society.
No fucking shit its called an society, but why should i write it like that, why do i have to study all those annoying terms and not use my own words?
The logic in math is to learn how to write it, but what ever way you take to get the solution doesn't matter as long as the calculation is correct. Over time you will improve efficiency.

You can not rush into life is just an random sentence that makes sense only if you take a look at what is happening around you.
Too much people confused with what should they do with them selfs, too much people thinking they should force rules upon you, too much people living off leaching others. Wrong people with power. You can get harmed for something absurd on every corner.
I also did not know what to do at start but i got a lot interest into electronics at a very young age, but nowhere and nobody could help me with that. I felt empty that i can not do what i like and that i have no resources to do it on my own. I lost interest into everything that i studied . But later in life i started thinking about it differently, and that is to walker pass by what i don't like to do to be able to do what i like to do.
I found that it is much more satisfying to help others understand that they can do what ever they like as their hobby than just to be destructive to everything and everyone because i didn't get what i want.

I very much understand how do you feel about all of these things that you NEED to study in order to do something you like, but dont lose your spirit if you didn't understand it at first.
You are still young and have a lot of time to give to many things. Relax and try again, try to understand others as well. You can't make it far alone.

Ah, another case of a professor who doesn't give a fuck.
But still, is it really that hard for you guys? I mean, there are resources everywhere on the net :/

When we here study for things we gather up information and than solve different things and help out each other who don't understand.

I know you have the potential to pass this, every one does.
When i study i start from the most basic of tasks that need to be done to complete an task. Than move on up to more complex tasks and read on why is something required to be done as it is done to get the solution. To understand what i am actually doing. After that i do a few runs on my own and get another set of tasks to complete as well.

If he has all the material for solving the problem, and those are formulas and example tasks, there shouldn't be much hussle to solve anything related to electronics. Everything follows simple logic.

Thats truth in theory.
But in practice it is a completely different thing.

Massive lag occurs on large polygon count, especially with 32 players at the time on a single server.
In order to host such a complex map a person would need an 1000FPS server which are the most expensive to buy.

Plus many people (over 50%) that play CS 1.6 classic mode dont have anything better than dual core pentium at max.

Different Versions of NT Kernel bring different functionality.

And i am pretty sure no windows would react that way if it were functioning normally. Yours was probably corrupted heavily.
And there is an notable speed increase and responsiveness in Windows 8 compared to 7. And its known that at core windows 8 is a large improvement.
Urby, the only thing "Touch screen" is the start menu.
Commented 6 years ago2013-12-08 10:46:10 UTC in journal: #8300 Comment #45897
Depends on operating system. Windows 8 wont lock up unless something vital gets blocked/corrupted.
It will try to terminate and analyze the application on its own way. If that fails the user can always finalize the process by pressing end task in the pop up window - Application not responding.

Microsoft has everything it needs for tablet market, and by far it is the best operating system for tablet computers.

Commented 6 years ago2013-12-08 08:47:42 UTC in journal: #8300 Comment #45895
You can resize the buttons, i am using medium size for the buttons because i have no need for smaller ones. There is also wide and large.

Metro is much more functional with keyboard and mouse, where did you get the idea its much faster to use an screen that can accept only one command per cycle?
And why do you even need to see the rest of the screen to start up an program?
That is so minor compared to the rest that i simply can not understand. But every one has their preferance.

The thing i am trying to say is that its functionality is exactly the same as start that was present in all other windows versions. It is simply of new UI which is extremely easy to get used to and pleasant when you know what you want from your system, aka organized display of programs and functions.

In old start you had only a fixed amount of pinned buttons, program shortcuts, that you could have used. About 10 for my screen size. And the rest was navigated by going trough a large list of all kinds of shit with small text and unnecessary shortcuts in those folders. Where here you can easily see larger icons and grouped programs by simply moving your mouse:

And write to search function works flawlessly:

It is much better in my opinion to have separate system functions access and separate program Start access.
Right clicking on the start menu icon you get access to all system settings and as well as shut down and other things such as instant shortcut to programs and features.

It needs to end the task following system logic of process handling. If you want brute force process control get apps like Process Hacker.

Metro start allows the same functionality as start in windows 7. Press start > write app name > app appears in menu on the right, as well with suggestions.

It is equally functional and at the same time more neater and tidier. Plus you have the regular access to all installed programs by using down function.

Learning to operate an system with keyboard shortcuts will significantly increase your productivity.

What you described definitely is not how windows 8.1 is.

You have an desktop and windows UI just like in all previous versions, where Start has been replaced by an more functional and more use friendly metro start menu.
The only thing different in UI from windows 7 is the position of certain system access buttons and the way to access the shut down menu (as well as already mentioned start menu being replaced by metro).

Why did you even install windows 8.1 if you cant get used to such minor changes?

Also Dimbark don't talk shit if you didn't try it. From my point of view, as an person that uses his computer with knowledge of every system aspect windows 8.1 is neater and more organized, as well as having an better core system.

Bitching because of small things is acting like an old grampa who cant get used to having a new remote.
As for end task, either you're not using windows 8.1 or idk, youre blind.

What you described sounds like Windows 8, not Windows 8.1.
Why in the name of all thats good did you not install Windows 8.1?

Why would you install an regular start menu when Metro is a shit ton better?
Give it some time to configure it, i first thought it was shit until i realized it is much much better than an normal pop up start. The shut down and computer/network info buttons are on the pop up menu accessed by pointing to the top right or bottom right corner of the screen.
You can also shut down with ALT F4.
To end an process press DELETE like in every windows before.
Plus Windows 8.1 task manager has more information, such as resource monitor with graphs, and better program overview. As well as startup control.

Install windows 8.1, why why why did you install 8???

Don't disable metro for some third party bug script. Upgrade to windows 8.1 and you will see it is much different.

Ghosty, microphones can cost 10 000$ and more.

250$ is more than enough for an good quality home microphone. I think you can get a great one from 100$.

I know some one on TWHL knows about current popular models, but i forgot who it was. You could also ask Archie who probably knows about that a lot as well (since he works as a camera man).

Basically you would judge a microphone by the characteristics that would suit you (Direction, sensitivity, audio range, type, etc).
