    This thread got poetic really fast. I think, I'll stick around and watch for a while. Call my mom when it's over.

    Is Ccleaner legit/good?

    Well not that I'd know but a friend told me those installers actually look pretty clean and straightforward. ?

    Is Ccleaner legit/good?

    Yes I agree with that. It is usually the user that messes things up. By default there is nothing dangerous in CCleaner, especially since all of the dangerous features are disabled or unchecked by default. I also believe Revo is a valid application to use. I wouldn't put it in the "maintenance"...

    Is Ccleaner legit/good?

    I don't understand why some are so obsessed about "mantaining" Windows. Apart from shady registry modifications some programs make, Windows doesn't need external maintenance at all. If anything you should avoid using software that changes crucial parts of the system and you'll be just fine. And...

    Are they the same?

    Xeon processors are meant for servers, but people use them to run desktops too. Which one exactly is the Xeon processor you are looking at? If we know the model we can give you a more accurate comparison.

    Content Filtering - Primary School

    Yes, that's what I though. The only downside to the 2 networks issue would be that you still have to add sites manually. Maybe you can find a list online of recommended sites to block or allow based on the institution in which you work. For example, since you are a teacher, maybe you'd like to...

    Content Filtering - Primary School

    Maybe you could use the "Parental Control" feature in your router. Even old units have that. You simple type in the URLs to block or allow. For example, this is what it looks like on my gateway: You can exclude computers on an individual basis. This can be a lot of work though, and highly...

    Dell laptop question

    If your computer used to be faster, then there is no reason why it shouldn't be as fast now, if no major changes were made. Chrome could get slower if you have many add-ons that cause it to slow down when you use it. Regarding SSDs and "true" file deletion, that's not really relevant. SSDs...

    Maybe I would've been interested if I believed there was a magical way to get rich. But, as they say, you are only winning if someone is losing.

    You are missing the point. It's irrelevant what their intended use is. What matters is that it was the only way, so Bitcoin prices and/or the difficulty of the process were adjusted accordingly. The only thing that changed is that now you have to mine for longer, while using less power, but the...

    That's what I'm saying. Back when mining was done on cards, the price of a Bitcoing must have been higher, otherwise mining on cards wouldn't have worked, because the amount of Bitcoins you got per Wh would've been too low to be worth it. Once mining hardware was developed, the price of Bitcoing...

    That's true. However, serious people just use mining hardware now, right? Is it even worth it to use your card to mine nowadays? It feels like when miners came out, Bitcoins must have devaluated and cards shouldn't have been worth using anymore. Unless there is no real difference between the two...

    Yeah, I usually do use them for the most obvious purpose for which they were designed. Hardware acceleration is cool and all, but only if you are doing certain things periodically and on a larger scale. I'm not going to bother setting up encoding acceleration to encode a video every 2 months...

    I thought compatibility with older hardware was the issue, not compatibility with games AND older hardware. Kind of two completely different things.

    Programmed obsolescence is more like when Samsung or Apple release updates that make phones extremely slow or buggy. It gets to a point where further development of software for certain hardware just becomes too wasteful. You can't pretend that hardware manufacturers keep developing drivers...

    I would say most Linux distributions are way more forgiving on older hardware than Windows. I feel this is because Linux often provides open-source, generic drivers that work on most hardware for those who own hardware that has little Linux support from vendors (because this is a widespread...

    Who needs SSL security software?

    I'm not sure how anyone could sell you such a thing. SSL is the protocol used by servers to encrypt information back and forth between a client a and the server, to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks (which means that a person sniffing the packets you are sending to the server won't be able to...

    Trouble sourcing HDD (Vintage)

    It's not about winning, I'm trying to understand what you are trying to say. I don't know why we have to be so confrotational about the whole thing. The kernel is not the same thing as the OS.

    What I fail to understand, strollin, is what you think DOS is. Is it the kernel? Is it something else? Is "Windows 9x" just the name of the GUI? Why can't "Windows 9x" be the name of the whole thing? Including GUI, kernel and system utilities?

    If Windows 95 isn't an OS, you'd be wrong on two counts, since Windows 1.0 already had a graphical user interface, nevermind how unattractive: Regarding the OS dilemma, I think strollin is tryng to make a distinction between the kernel, system utilities and user interface. However, the...

    Fresh Win 10 Installation Questions

    1. You can upgrade a current installation or format the drive and install. To do the latter, when prompted, click on "Advanced," delete partitions to make space for Windows, click on "new" and then install on the newly create partition.
