    The main things really are: the inability to quickly wipe and reinstall Windows should things mess up, and difficulty of backups. If he doesn't care about any of his files, that's great. He can just keep chugging along without a care in the world as he is, but if something goes wrong, then he's the one responsible for any data recovery or computer fixings.

    It's his choice, so you shouldn't have to be lumped with sorting out the problems he could have prevented.

    OSX is better at handling having 20,000 random files all stored in the root directory, is it?

    EDIT: Also, he wants to play games on it, so lolMac.

    I mean his HDD hasn't failed yet either.

    It's more that before the video crapped out on it it would take ten minutes to open folders on his PC because storing tens of thousands of individual files in the root is bad for the filesytem and the way window's indexes things.

    How is that not enough of an explanation for him?

    "Basic functions of your computer will be faster if you do X, X is also really simple and requires minimal effort."

    Alt: Do you need someone to be that mean to him for you? My rates are very reasonable.

    I dunno.

    Because he refuses to listen clear advice when it comes from me, even though I have far more experience with computers... :P

    And you have problems telling him he's being a dolt?

    I can be mean to him for you if you'd like. I won't make him cry.

    If someone really wanted to be mean, they'd write some kind of script to randomly delete* or corrupt** files from the root directory. Preferably his most frequently accessed files.

    This has been a Jerkface Cyv Production.

    * Actually hide them somewhere he can't immediately find them.

    ** Make copies first to somewhere he can't find them, then corrupt the originals.

    Seriously, though, what Fyn says. Tell him that if he wants to speed up his computer and make sure he won't have to lose all his files one day, he should stop being silly and listen to what the friendly family computer person who does the computer things and knows about the computer things says.

    We need a script that (invisibly) runs once at startup, and does not stay in the background.

    If # of files in C:\ is greater than the minimum number required to run computer and all programs on it, then delete C:\*.*

    If they pull it off with the usual spec upgrades, and no loss in battery life. I gotta say, it'd be pretty sexy. I mean they made it thinner again too.

    Let's say I wanted to roll my own wireless security system for work, including some sort of DVR functionality.

    I picked up a dropcam which is neat but also pricey and not good for outdoor use and their cloud dvr thing while not terribly expensive for the company is still maybe a bit more than I'd like, though their iPhone/Android app is pretty snazzy.

    We have a Q-See security system where I work.

    It's not that great. Without high def it's hard to make things out sometimes. For inside, it's not a big deal. For outside though, it makes it almost useless.

    I've seen some people breaking into cars, and a dude took a big shit on our lawn once. Then he wiped his ass with a towel, and threw it in our bushes.

    Fucking animals, I tell ya.

    I would like my iphone 5s screen to be a bit wider, but I don't know if I want it any longer. It's already taking up a lot of pocket real estate.

    Yup this.

    I don't mind if they make the screen bigger but not the overall size.

    Once you get a big screen, you won't be able to go back.

    That may be true that you don't want to go back! But that doesn't mean I don't want to upgrade to a larger device, smaller ones are "good enough" for me. And the pocketable advantages for me outweigh the screen size.

    I don't want anything with a larger form factor than the HTC One. It's just a nice size for me to still be able to use it one-handed. It's not often I feel like I could do with a larger screen.

    In fact, in the ten or so months I've owned this, I haven't actually felt the desire for a larger screen or device.

    I only wish my nexus didn't have software buttons so the whole screen would be used. It is otherwise the perfect size.

  • Options
    CyvrosCyvros Registered User regular
    For a while, I had on-screen buttons enabled on my One. I had to take the size down to 85 or 90 percent, though, because they do take up an awful amount of vertical space normally.

    I don't want a larger phone, it won't fit in my designated Phone Pocket in my bag.
