  1. as for now, Paypal will bann any accounts if it was known to be used for anything bitcoin related, like buying/selling ASIC/coin-mining devices, or exchanging bitcoins for other fiat currencies, etc.. I remember reading that Paypal cited that too much transaction fraud happned involving bitcoins, so Paypal decided to bann it all, even if both both seller & buyer actually doing a honest transactions.

    KB2670838 IE 10

    you can try experiment by uninstalling that KB and blocking that specific KB patch so it wont be installed again by windows updates, using workaround like this: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\HotFix\KB267038]"Installed"=dword:00000001 then try to see if installing IE10 and/or IE11 afterward would cause instability or not. Don't forget to set up a restore point, before starting the experiments.

    err, you should block the displayed hex next time too. its too easy to convert the hex into readable text.

    Bing just got incredibly slow

    probably due to the new Windows 8.1 default search setting that forward windows search term to bing, and feed users with (un)wanted ads. http://community.bingads.microsoft.com/ads/en/bingads/b/blog/archive/2013/07/02/new-search-ad-experiences-within-windows-8-1.aspx

    Smallest Actual Flash Drive Size ?

    I personally dislike the slim usb connector, as they usualy doesn't work well with USB cord extension (Standard-A receptacle) due physical problem. The Standard Type-A USB connector/plug is good, why they feel the need to mangle it?
  6. This known bug that IPB url parsing are a bit off if the urls contain the ' (apostrophe) character(s). I do encounter some other urls that contain apostrophe. But as always the IPB dev said it was not a 'bug' http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/bugs.html/_/ip-board/link-is-broken-if-contains-or-r40575 and thus shows no desire to 'fix' it. anyway, this is IPB fault in general not the MSFN.

    This add new "Steam-Envy" to the list of Microsoft's sickness. XBox division are envying the steam business model, but they hates the fact in steam model they need to actively use discounts to attract sales.

    I agree, the new yahoo mail are visualy sucks, other available themes are just equally sucks. I find myself prefer the old one too. But if you remember the old yahoo-mail url (check your browser history) , you still able to access the yahoo mail classic. as per today, yahoo hasn't delete the old assets (.js ; .css), yet.

    Windows 8 - Deeper Impressions

    Does that really mean what I think it says -- that in Firefox you can't use the Escape key any more to stop one of those interminable web page loads?? --JorgeA I already suspecting something like this would happen, when i notice most recent browsers UI began omitting the "Stop" button. "You can press the 'Esc' key dude" that what they told me before, when i ask why they removing the stop button back then.

    it seems Microsoft knew that fingerprints would be annoying on touchscreen, so Microsoft made the cleaning guide. Unlike Apple that hinted that regular cleaning of touchscren would diminish the screen quality, Microsoft however, suggests that users should cleans the touchscreen frequently.

    [Solved] BSoD on startup

    boot with bootlog enabled, after the bluescreen, reboot to command prompt only, examine the content from bootlog.txt. look for content like "fail" or "error"

    Windows 98 on Floppy Disks?

    just remainder, if its original win95 (not the OSR2 or later), the HDD must be no more than 2 GB (dunno about the exact size/geometrical limit) and must be formated FAT16, not even FAT32
