    I'm not flogging a dead horse. They decided to quote me so I informed them I am ignoring them so no point doing that.

    That was all. I don't plan have conversations with them.
    Understood. This is all so draining to read. My lungs are in protest...

    I thinking about doing a write up/review on the new video card; the GTX 970. I'll post it in the PC section of the forums and link it here for you guys to check out for me... (If you would!)

    Just got out of a staff meeting. So boring... :/ I had to get a coffee just to stay awake and I normally don't have afternoon coffees any more.

    Also thinking about starting a "gaming peripherals" thread to discuss various input devices geared toward gaming. Now that I'm actually in the market for a new gaming keyboard and mouse, I'd like to hear other users thoughts on the subject.

    OK I'm going to need some serious sleep leading up to next week. I have four half day meetings in a row (Mon - Thurs). That's going to be painful.

    :/

    Don't you just love those? At my job there's a culture of "meeting to have a meeting".

    At least when I shared that with one of the new supervisors here, he runs his meetings different to ensure that they're productive...

    Good move. You'll get some really good responses for sure...

    That's a rough schedule. Brandy/whiskey/not ******* the wife off might help...

    I'm sure you know where the ignore button is.
    The unfortunate part is that they haven't developed the software on this forum to block when someone quotes that person. It's very frustrating.
    I forgot about it last week. Will take care of it today morning.

    These staff meetings are purely information based. Boring as hell and can easily be put on our internal system for us to read instead of wasting and hour each month.

    I have no issues getting together to talk about useful things but these meetings are just a waste of time.

    Not currently no, but I'm looking at a new setup for a "home server". Why do you ask? Curious..

    And yes, been on Windows10 from day one.

    I have a WD MyBookLive and it's been a PITA with W10. The security settings on W10 makes mapping drives and connecting to network connected devices painful, especially a NAS.

    I was just curious if you've had any issues that's all.

    I've also continuously had issues with the track pad on my laptops, all of them required a registry hack to prevent the settings from being reset.

    It's been very frustrating. I know all this stuff rather well, I'd feel sorry for a 'regular' user trying to sort this stuff out.

    That's how I feel about my weekly 1 hour meetings that I zone out on. I'd rather go learn how to shear sheep instead.

    I'm thinking about getting the GF a N9. Her N7 2013 still runs well, but she wouldn't mind getting a bigger screen. I'll browse for prices a bit and once the cash is available, I'll turn that into her birthday gift...unless something more interesting comes along.

    Gotta buy her stuff new as she does use her warranty periodically - she's gotten some lemons in the past.

    Motorola forgot how to make a nice phone now when it's under Chinese, eh?
    Moto G4 leaked in two new live photos - Android Authority

    They also got quite expensive, and with questionable future updates I think I will pass Moto G4.

    Not sure what's fun about getting high of pot. I fail to understand what's fun about it. Maybe someone can enlighten me?

    Never touched the stuff myself but I think it's like smoking or drinking. It starts off as a bit of fun but then can become addictive.

    Ask most smokers why they started. It's probably the same reason why people do pot. Friends.

    I was displeased with what my friend when I found out she did pot a few days ago. The response was " I was just having fun sahib" then I asked" what's fun about it" she responded " I don't know."
