    Jesus fucking Christ is it too much to ask windows to not have an arduous and interminable upgrade system that hangs up for no fucking reason and can't log anything. Jesus

    Upgrading Windows has been a fools errand since the days of CGA monitors.

    Fresh install, man.

    After a Win8 upgrade broke parts of my Win7 install, I wholeheartedly agree. It's so much easier to just do a fresh install.

    I spent about four hours trying to get rid of windows 8 on the new vivobook I bought last thread.

    is tenacious.

    In an oddly sentient-seeming way.

    upgrading windows after installing a bunch of other shit*

    just chaining them back to back works surprisingly well...

    I'm very excited to go from 5 down to 30 in a few weeks

    And it's really cheap to go up to 60 or 90

    Upgrading from 8.1 to 10 actually worked pretty well for me, both on my desktop and netbook. I really could not be bothered reinstalling anything this time.

    So is anyone else running the yosemite betas?


    I have 2 questions!

    Did the new number four beta cover that latest 'ix vulnerability that was discovered?

    Also should I be able to get green texts to my phone now or has that not been implemented yet?

    8.6 in fact.

    If I wanted to plug my console to my monitor so I wouldn't tie up the TV, it's basically plug and play, right? No weird jumping through hoops setting up resolution like plugging a computer into most TVs?

    4.6" is still kinda a big screen imo. I'd rather have a 3.5"-4" screen.

    I don't even have tiny hands or wear tight pants, just find larger phones uncomfortable :/

    Might not have audio depending on your monitor, but otherwise yea.

    I'm gonna need to hear about Twitter clients, and why you use the ones you do

  • JasconiusJasconius sword criminal mad onlineRegistered User regular
    unless your monitor is native to the console resolution it will look like butt though

    my PS3 on an HDMI hookup to my 1080 IPS monitor looks horrendously bad

    even with the PS3 in "1080i" mode, every hint of that upsampling is visible

    I use Plume because it looks nice. I'm not a power-user or anything, though.

    They're all shit. Everything has been shit since tweetdeck stopped being supported on android. I use Plume because it's the least shit, but it's still shit.

  • CormacCormac Registered User regular
    I'm very happy with Talon, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.klinker.android.twitter&hl=en, but Falcon Pro was good until it started running like crap and seemed to be abandoned. Twicca is worth a look if you want something that's very bare bones.

    i really miss Tweetdeck's widgets that showed multiple lists at once. Tweetdeck was basically the best Twitter client on Android, and Twitter killed it. gah.

    if I had one twitter account and never used lists, I think the official twitter app would probably be ok

  • jgeisjgeis Registered User regular
    My contract with AT&T is up tomorrow, and my end of service date for the current billing cycle is the 27th. I hope they officially announce the Droid Turbo or Shamu soon. Pretty much down to those and the Note 4 as my next phone, carrier still up in the air.

    I don't use a Twitter client because Twitter is stupid

  • MadEddyMadEddy Creepy house watching youRegistered User regular
    I have three twitter accounts and use the official twitter app. It's fine. I'd rather only look at one feed at a time, though, and I don't bother with lists, so I don't need to be able to display multiple streams or anything.

    What I wish is that Instagram would let you be logged into multiple accounts at once like twitter does. I made my cat an Instagram account because I'm well on my way to cat-ladyhood but it's such a pain to switch to it.

    It's a weird idea that Twitter client is one of my main sticking points about this switch

    Tweetbot is just so good and I use Twitter so much

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    It's possible that I would think tweetbot is garbage as well. If it's not tweetdeck, it basically fails my test ;)

  • ASimPersonASimPerson Cold... and hard.Registered User regular
    I use Plume because I have multiple accounts and it still works with Facebook. Also it's pretty customizable, for instance, you can have it display usernames (instead of names) and the actual fucking timestamp (3:45 PM is way more descriptive than "4 hours ago").

    I miss pre-buyout Tweetdeck so much though, on both desktop and mobile :(

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    Yeah, really I shouldn't shit on Plume as much as I do. It's very good for what it does. It sounds like it has all of the features that tweetbot has, if not more.

    Things I want in a twitter app (probably missing some things):
    • unlimited accounts
    • single "home" feed that is /all/ the accounts at once, with the ability to exclude an account if I want
    • single "mentions" feed identical to above
    • multiple "tabs" for lists, and the home feed, etc, all from the "main" screen
    • customized notifications PER "tab"
    • reply to any tweet from any or multiple of the unlimited accounts from wherever I'm reading the tweet (a tweet at account A should be able to be responded to by account B without switching where I am in the app)
    • widget that shows which tab has new tweets

    Plume does all of those things except the customized notifications and the widget.

    My phone seems to be finally gone. It was a samsung galaxy nexus and I'm pretty sure it went through literal phone hell - including getting soaked by accidental drops in water, falling from my hands countless times, and flying off the roof of my car while I was going 70km/h.

    I'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner. Anyway.

    I'm thinking galaxy s5. I'm pretty impressed with samsung after this last phone, and I'm not keen on iphones. Not sure which other android devices I'd go for.
