Can confirm, Bastard Café is in Copenhagen (Denmark for all you Americans whom we all know are terrible at geography outside of their own state ;) )

Well done, you crazy Swedish person, you!

Glad to see you're still around from time to time. Your pictures feed my guilty conscience - I'm not getting outside enough and not using my DSLR enough.

Heh. Just yesterday I had the pleasure of booting my Macbook into Safe Mode on Windows 8.1. Not very easy, it seems. Apparently, if you can boot into normal mode, you can just hold down shift while restarting, but in my case, I was not able to boot into the desktop.

Anyway, I share your pain. The good news: Windows 10 is shaping up to be quite nice. Just installed it on a machine for a friend, and it boots from dead cold to desktop in less than 5 seconds.

As none of you have noticed, the forum has been down for half of the day due to our ISP shutting us down due to spammer attacks.

E.A.R.L. has been installed, and the main exhaust port blocked by X-Wing debris.

I would click that link, but I'm currently boycotting Russia, sorry.

I'm a pagan.

I have a Macbook Pro that hasn't been booted in OSX since I installed Windows 8 when I got it :p

Windows isn't perfect, but I've had less problems with Windows than I've had with OSX and various Linux distros. I've spent two days changing the resolution on a Linux machine when it output to a composite cable. And various other tasks that would be trivial in Windows just aren't implemented yet in Linux. For the most part, it's not the fault of the Linux kernel itself - it's just the average linux application seems to be of a worse quality than a similar windows application (or rather: the selection is much larger, making it easier to find a good one). My experience with Linux is summed up by the quote: "Linux is only free if your time has no value".

That being said, I do own a Synology NAS, which runs on Linux.

OSX is ok, I suppose, if you're doing basic tasks. But as soon as you venture into uncharted territory, the beast that is Unix shows its face, and everything becomes much more complicated than it should be. It is relatively user friendly for basic users, but as a power user, I am annoyed by the abstractions like dragging a new application into the applications folder to install it, and dragging the DVD-Drive into the bin to eject it. (Makes even less sense for mounted .isos).

Windows has it's quirks, but it is easier to find an answer online as there are a lot more people using it.

The only system I've ever encountered malware on, or been hacked on is the Linux device, which I find quite hilarious.

Did you try BG Tutu? I got the BG:EE on steam, but wonder if the Tutu version is actually better..

Most certainly do! Despite me not posting a lot here, I love that people still check in every few years/decades..

Ok, so we are getting hundreds of new members every week. This is all good, but none of these members are actual people; they are bots wanting to sell us time share apartments and prescription drugs.

So, as a safety measure, we will need some random questions that anyone can answer, but are difficult for bots to parse. Please fire away, and I'll add them to the cycle of questions for new members.

A few examples:

'To prove you are not a bot, type 'rutabaga' in the answer field.'
'In what year did the second World War end?'
'What is the name of the prequel to Fallout 2? (lower case)'

I have no idea why it suggests these (well, the last one makes sense):

what is the time
what is the meaning of life
what is the time in usa
what is the american dream
what is the time in denmark

I demand to know where the British got that ship!

I, for some reason, got 13 copies to give away. Personally, I think 42 would have been a more appropriate number.

I agree that manually updating the firmware might do the trick. I've long since given up on inkjet printer as I either: use a lot of ink (which costs me a lot of money) or use very little ink, which means the cartridges dry up, and I have to buy new ones (which costs me a lot of money).

I bought a colour-laser two years ago, and I haven't seen a warning about low toner level so far, and it even came with an extra set of cartridges.

Well.. Technically, you don't have to kill yourself to win a Darwin award. You can 'just' castrate yourself.

As a multiple Darwin award winner I can safetly say that the reward was overated anyway.

Wait.. You have removed your DNA from the human gene pool multiple times?
