  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.
  2. 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.
  3. err, you should block the displayed hex next time too. its too easy to convert the hex into readable text.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  7. if somebody know how to edit the .css files s/he can make a personal MSFN-forum-skin customization specific for his/her browser, with help of Proxomitron's $RDIR function. like this: steps: Find out the URLs for the MSFN .css fileDownload the files from said URLsEdit the said .css and save it to proxomitron html folderCreate header (out) filter to intercept said URLs and redirect it to the saved css filesEDIT: my .css manual editing skills & coloring sense are just as sucks, please recommend me a good .css editor
  8. should offer that at VOGONS forums, where many vintage computer hunters gathers. they more interested in hardware spec though.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. yeah, without group policies, stuff like Zeus's NTFS Access can easly undo the ACL settings http://www.zeus-software.com/downloads/ntfsaccess
  13. 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.
  14. 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"
  15. 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
  16. huh, where did i read that before? something like: HTML4 with IE# is the best way..... surely MS want you need to cough up more $$$ for another OS/Browser when HTML >5 cames around ... I wonder if MS will suggest for standarized web-searcher anytime soon?
  17. its prudent to wait a few weeks before installing the 'update' especialy if such updates was to address 'problem' that has no real-life case. The October 2012 'security' updates for example,. there no such "security-problem" case ever reported, but the updates are known to degrade the NTVDM subsystem.
  18. June 2009? and just a month before Nemulator version 2.0b1 released ( release date: 2009-07-07 ) ? Somehow I got this vibe that folk at MS reading CharlotteTheHarlot's post above (#1317) about Nemulator and informing her about it, which prompts the Granny to 'moves' the date from 2010 into 2009 accordingly.
  19. Having Excel without Macros/Add-ins , what would be next, power drills with no chuck but a fixed 6 mm steel drill bit, adjustable wrenches fixed to 13 mm? jaclaz somehow i got this feeling that MS would said the crippled Office-suit decision were based on (dubious) 'telemetry' result.
  20. in RTM atleast, both points above (facebook & ads) were proofed by the Windows Defender.
  21. Theres also differents result on what "Properties" will said from various context menu. if the link are contain both image & text (tested on IE8): Right click on image part, choose properties, will show image source Right click on text part, choose properties, it will shows useless information Using app key, choose properties will shows link destination.
  22. I never like the IE9... anyhow, how about using the "App key" (key that on the right of right win-key) did they broken too? i'm usualy navigates links using "Tab key" then use the "App key" for context menu, and of course I also using proxomitron's filtering to ensure context menu is allowed.
  23. I must nitpick on this one. Did you ever realize that you make unfair comparison: 2K run on P4 XP run on P4 yet you said it was like : Halo run on XBOX Halo4 run on XBOX-360
  24. its still posible to use "Tab" key to shift the active focus control without having to displayed on screen, but ...
  25. I personaly found how MS doing things with win8 is 'distasteful', probably because i'm a techie user. Example: TL;DR: http://www.howtogeek.com/122404/how-to-block-websites-in-windows-8s-hosts-file/ seriously, MS should at least include a help file in win8 installation explaining this, but they don't.
