  1. I mean - why is it any more stupid then any other OS they've dropped support for? XP wasn't supported for much further past its EOS... And, at this point, most hardware already has stopped support for 7, usually long ago thanks to microsofts meddling in 2017/18. Vista was more or less lumped into XPs EOS for nvdia as it had not much market share. Windows 8 is the vista here. I see nothing going on with this that doesn't make sense.

  3. @Mr.Scienceman2000: I feel the same on may things you wrote there. A whole house is just too expensive. It's not a realistic goal to achieve with a "normal" work when you have to start your finances from scratch. Except through making debts, which goes against my principles. But what you can do with little money (that you don't need otherwise) is put it on gold and silver. At least 100 years ago, people where able to buy houses "for an apple and an egg" then, when the money was worth nothing anymore and the desperation to get true values were big.

  5. You can try making MS bring back support for Windows 98 or XP with the same success rate. Google does what is good for them, not for us. Forcing you to use their browser (and upgrade the hardware if needed) is good for them. Same with any other major company.

  6. Here few radio related utilities that I have confirmed to work on XP. Latest version of SDRSharp for XP is SDRSharp 1361 (freeware). That can be used to scan ham radios and similar To use RTL-SDR radio dongles (rtl2832u based tv tuner card) under XP you need install driver using zadig 2.2 that is last for xp and been working fine for me Also latest version of virtual radar server that can be used to map airplanes broadcasting ADS-B signal runs under xp

  7. I quit bying Nvidia in early 2014 (when they removed CSAA for no reason). And I was a loyal customer for 20 years and bought only the top of the line. Folks need to learn how to use their purchasing power.

  8. Renting versus owning has pros and cons on both sides. I'm not well-traveled so I can only speak based on "numbers". Home-ownership in US is 65.3%. Germany is 51.5%, Finland is 71.1%, Ireland is 70.3%. EU average is 70%.

  9. here house prices been inflating a lot in since joining euro and switching away from finnish mark. Before house costing 1 million was luxury level house, nowadays even "average sized" house can be 400 000+ depending area. Friend who built his house with back in early 2000 and sold it few years ago got 5x what he used to build and maintain it. Also price of food, living etc been going up due taxes and euro course, while most of salaries been going down. Atleast I am lucky to have decent income and wont live on most expensive areas on south Finland. Also rents have not affected too badly yet where I live Likely I will never be able to afford to buy my own house since prices of houses unless find extremely highly paid job and even for those need more work experience that only times bring. I live in rented apartment which is not too bad despite peoples saying I should buy house since cheaper on long term. I do not want take loan to build house, I never took loans, I do not even have credit card. I pay all in cash or debit card. If cannot afford something I want I save for it even long time if needed. And why I said rented apartment is not too bad Lets imagine it like this: Either you take load to pay 100 000€ or more to build a house (plus any additional) and in case damage occurs that is not your fault but insurance refuses fix you are on your own, also to move other city you need sell house that may take time and that is why not optimal to me, who knows what life brings. Let just say you wont go to centre of town where apartment can be 1000€ or more per month for single person block and rather go outside town where got decent connections to city trough bike, bus or other like I do. You pay 500-600 euros for three room house that may even have sauna (room filled with steam finnish use to relax ). Also all non private apartments on my area offer cable tv which is same as OTA tv here but no distraction from weather. Then they offer free 10mb/s cable modem broadband connection for free and 100mb/s cable modem connection with 10 euros/month. Also good portition of electric and water is included on rent price and if did exceed it you will get that portition paid back. And if anything breaks, rent aparments services comes replace/fix it including shower, toilet, fridge, furnace. To get rid off house I just tell rent company I will sign off and withing next month my rent ends

  10. I am not aware of any corporations buying residential properties in my area, but that is one type of thing not mentioned in the local news nor something I pay much attention to. I do listen to the real estate shows on the radio at time and maybe they will say something on the next one since that tweet/story had gotten curated into twitter newsfeed. I do know that this area also has the same issue of people being outbid on house prices and the sale prices going way up. I can only speak for my own neighborhood in that regard, where the 2 houses I know have sold, one was purchased by a person. The other I do not know yet becauase the owner didn't move yet. On those radio shows they have been talking about the local market for awhile and what they have found is a lot of the purchases were made by people who had migrated from New York City, which seems to be a considerable amount. The only thing this housing situation over the past year has done is raise the value of my own house to a relatively insane level... I'd say the comparable value has at least doubled... good thing the monthly payment hasn't changed. But for 30 years ago around here, that trend was not present. There were other things happening instead. The area was depressed because we had lot most of our major industry and values were very low. Corporations were buying property in large amounts but not for high prices. They were buying up the old industrial properties which a lot ended up on the waterfront as the reason why we had a boom town in the early-mid 1900s was due to waterway shipping. We had a large rail hub and giant rail station, and giant city hall... overly large considering the size of the then current population. So the corporations were buying up large portions of cheap land 30 years ago and since then most of it has been developed. The parts that haven't are those that were primarily used for steel industry where the cleanup is expensive or at times not even done.

  11. @Dixel: Unfortuneatly, 30 years earlier, I didn't even exist, so I'm not a primary source on that topic. But why not chatting about the financial situation here, in Germany... It's not all down to inflation. Food is cheap. Computers too (especially used ones). But the houses and renting prices must have grown massively from what I can hear old people saying. Maybe the change to the Euro in 2001 has made a big difference compared with the US dollar. I don't think old grumpy people were rambling without reason, "how everything got expensive". They calculate it back to the former currency, Deutsche Mark (DM), and indeed, prices have gone up for most of things! Germany has big gaps between the regions. A friend of mine has a house in the rural part of Hessen (middle of Germany) which he could sell for 150.000 Euros. Now he tries to get something similar in a rural part of Bavaria (Oktoberfest! South of Germany). Forget it! His nice house is standing at the wrong place and so pretty much useless for that task, as prices are 4 times higher there! And compared with the eastern part of Germany (former DDR), my friend could buy two equal houses for his current one. It's definetly important to have some real stuff "for later years". The states pension system (is that the right word?) is broken. Since the 60s to be honest (because of medicine, reducing child birth and people not wanting to die). The number of old people that are getting decent amounts of money from the state is getting smaller and smaller. It's math. Less young people, more old people, who the heck is going to pay that? Of all the people that are digging through deposit bottles in the cities where I've lived, I would estimate there was an equal high number of young hobos and of old people trying desperately to get some additional money. Dammit, what a great perspective for the retirement age! And a great "thank you" for working for 40 years. I've heard enough bitterness, really. Life is tough, being stupid never helps, money rules the world, so get on your own feet and don't rely on a poorly-planned state to help you when you're old.
