  1. I'm doing everything I can to avoid products-as-a-service. I just bought and activated a copy of Office 2007. Now is a good time to start hoarding software-that-you-own while you can.

    what is happening in your dreams?

    Last night I dreamed I was in a room full of elfish creatures shaped like letters, except they weren't letters from the alphabet. They would transform into entirely different letters and colors about 10-15 times per second, and they would make language sounds unlike any language I have ever heard. Then I woke up and saw various shapes continue to flash rapidly inside my eyelids.

    ISSUE : Downgrading Windows 8.1 to Windows 7

    Any time a common action requires more inputs or more time/effort than before, that is a downgrade in the UI. Once you have 10 or 20 of these little downgrades, the OS itself becomes a significant downgrade. UI matters.

    ISSUE : Downgrading Windows 8.1 to Windows 7

    Linux is a complete no-go for anyone whose time is even remotely valuable. When one very common program or service fails to install, be prepared to spend dozens of hours on a goose hunt searching through utterly cryptic troubleshooting for a problem with no certainty of a solution at all. If you're so paranoid about "staying up to date" on your OS, then there's nothing preventing you from keeping all your hacker-sensitive stuff and latest and greatest hardware on a Windows 10 install for your games, while using a different machine with an older OS for all your other day-to-day stuff.

    ISSUE : Downgrading Windows 8.1 to Windows 7

    I continue to use Windows 7 on multiple PCs without any problems whatsoever. I fully encourage the OP to follow through with the "downgrade" to Win7.
  8. You can get an extremely powerful system that is 100% compatible with Windows 7. Just maybe not with all the latest gen hardware. I recently purchased a 2011 model i7 laptop with fully upgraded SSD and memory, and it's surprisingly capable.
  9. I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ my Windows 7
  10. 100%, but the chances that people will pity you and tell you how great your compositions are is also 100%

    How do you handle your Mouse?

    Uh, exactly in between the two
  12. Look into Rockport boots. They're expensive, but my current pair is only now starting to develop cracks after almost 10 years of heavy use. Don't bother trying to salvage garbage footwear, just throw it away.
  13. I can give you the perspective of "the ghoster". There are times where I've ignored a person who repeatedly showed interest in connecting with me. There are various factors that go into whether I do this, but it basically boils down to this: The other person has given me absolutely no indication that they're capable of understanding things as I explain it to them, and often they've shown a tendency to misconstrue my words, or to recall things I've said in an inaccurate way at some point in the future. I judge that these people are less likely to understand their faults if I explain it to them, and those faults often extend far beyond comprehension issues. Ghosting them will at least give them the possibility of judging themselves, which I believe is much more powerful in the long run than being judged by other people. Tldr: Being ghosted by me is a sign that I don't respect your intelligence.

  15. Yeah I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the engine is a copy-paste from one of the open source Doom ports, certainly not "custom from scratch". If that's not blazingly obvious to you after watching his gameplay video, then we'll have to agree to disagree.
