I have nothing against Putin tranny beer, I like when people troll other people in style, what i don't like is when people approach something like that as it being something that truly fights for some ones rights when they have no idea what fighting for rights even means.

Difficulty with google sources is that many use a different approach to the same thing. And some over complicate for no reason, where others include things they them selfs dont fully understand.

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.

Lairon really tried to make something nice and spent a lot of time crafting it. Interesting map design and nice atmosphere all around made this a pretty awesome map to play.
Also it has a lot of different types of environments all around as well, i am sure anyone will find a favorite part.

Bad Password - it is based on a dictionary word - this is okay but you must use a series of words, or make it longer with punctuation and numbers
Bad Password - include at least one number and capital letter
Bad Password - can not use the word "Fuck"
Bad Password - too short

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.

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.

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).

You should look into VGA programming as well. Where the real magic happens.
Display control on hardware level. What does an instruction do when its called and how does hardware react, what happens with the hardware it self when it gets an instruction, how does it react electrically...
A lot of interesting shit.

I my self have been experimenting with MS DOS graphical programming and have gotten my hands onto some interesting literature.
But i haven't attempted making any programs just yet due to not completely understanding all major functions of C language that i am currently learning on my own. I am currently at pointers.
I am learning C on an IBM 380ED.

@ Scotch

Windows 8.1 is generally more responsive and "faster" than windows 7. Mine Windows 8.1 boots from 7 to 10 seconds on an regular hard drive. It has an customizable metro start menu that is pretty neat when you arrange it the way you like. It has crappy apps that you can add onto metro as well, like weather and notes and crap like that.

It supports DX11.1, the core system is better, applications respond faster to calls and anything i have tried works in it (except 16bit applications). Even some apps i tried from windows 95 work as well. Plus it has some compatibility analyzer thing you can use before you start the application.

Metro also heavily reduces number of program icons on taskbar/desktop. Access to some various things like network, control panel and computer info has been moved, but its by my opinion better that way.
The system works very well with older hardware, all my external floppies work, and they work even better than on windows 7.


Boots much much faster
Is ready to use instantly as it boots
Better core system, DX 11.1
Better UI, simpler usage

Something fucked it up. Either a virus or something you installed messed with system files.
A lot of things can damage an operating system. You're lucky its not the boot sector thats affected so you can easily fix it.

And who in their RIGHT mind pays for an operating system? Why?

Windows 8.1 is the best windows operating system. Its much better than 7 and any other that they have made (For todays computing).

You don't need to remove the heat transferring solution. Only if it got onto something else than the CPU and the cooler. Cleaning with cotton, toilet paper, or any other soft cloth will do. No need to use alcohol. Only use alcohol if the solution got onto CPU contacts and nearby components.

And you don't need those high end expensive solutions either. I use 2$ thermal paste and my PC is running at 45C with stock cooler in any game.

Best thermal paste is definitely ceramic or silicon.

Make sure to tighten the heat sink back in securely. And inspect did the thermal solution get onto anything else. Those silver ones conduct usually.
