What's going on, Reap?

Nothing much, just had some amazing pizza for lunch. Some beers are in order for his evening.

Morning.  I am burnt out today. I'm trying not to stress myself out about work but it affects you. I won't show it to the employees though.  Push through and lets get it done today.

Burn out is no fun. 

Excited for tonight's concert in new york city.  Been awhile since I had a night out in the city solo for a concert.  Add in one of my all time favorite bands and maybe one of my favorite live acts and I just cannot wait for the time to pass today.   :hat

311

I don't think they are fairly popular outside of the US. The openers are New Politics and The Skints.  I kind of want to check these bands out too, but I may not get there in time tonight, seeing the same show Saturday so I'll get to check out the openers then.

Yea, Mosaic and it's amazing.  Easily their best in 10 years, maybe their best overall surprisingly (going to be hard to beat that nostalgia of their self titled album though).   Made this music video of the song Perfect Mistake if you want to listen.  But thier sound is all over the place so one song hardly describes the band.

I haven't heard of them, but have a good time. :tup

Yea, figured since they never seem to tour outside the US although they were/are fairly popular over here.  Thanks though, tonight will definitely be fun.

I heard it all ready.  I forgot to find out the release date.  My favorite album is Uplifter.

That's an interesting choice.  All of their albums are consistent and solid though.  Love me some Jackpot  :metal

DAMMIT DON'T CONFUSE ME LIKE THAT.


So my niece lost her tablet, and for some reason my mother felt obligated to replace it for her, and of course me being the de facto technology guy of the house, I have to set it up for her (made even worse by the fact they don't even have the internet at their house because they're cheap-ass white trash losers stuck in 1995).
Anyway, after about a month of procrastinating on both principle and laziness, I finally take a look at it, and see that it has Windows 8.1 on it. My parents have a knack for managing to find the most unbelievably useless stuff. I already despise Android tablets as it is, but Windows on a tablet is like a whole new world of pain, and all I've even done so far is the setup screen. How the hell does one make a shitty 7" Windows 8.1 tablet usable for a 10 year old kid? (or however old she is, I really don't know or care) And what can you even get for a Windows tablet? This is awful.

And what can you even get for a Windows tablet?

For starters, Comic Sans.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

I had a Windows 8 laptop/tablet (one of those converting ones) awhile ago and didn't hate it.  Windows 8 wasn't so bad when you used it as a tablet compared to using it as a desktop.  However, the app store is lacking compared to android and ios.  Now as for a kid, I can't answer, I am out of touch with people under the age of 24.

This is the worst thing ever. I can't even connect to a wifi network in tablet mode apparently. I go to the settings and click Wifi, and it says "not connected", which I can click, and all it does is show me the wifi that isn't connected. How about a way to actually connect to a network, you dumb fuck? And trying to do it in PC mode is impossible, because it's running 1280xsomething on a 7" screen with only touch acting as a mouse.

Oh, I'm sure it's perfectly fine on a hybrid with a real size screen. The problem is this is a 7" bottom of the barrel tablet. Setting up android to be usable makes me want to pull out my hair, but the thought of cramming a PC OS onto a tablet with the equivalent processing power of a PC from last millennium is something I hope people lost their jobs and lives over.

I've only briefly used Windows 10 when setting it up on my sister's new laptop, and it wasn't bad. Much better than 8. I've heard about Windows 10 forcing certain things on you though.

I'm sticking to Windows 7 until I'm dragged kicking and screaming.

Yay! Ditto. Unfortunately there are a few things that will eventually require me to use Windows 10, but for now my installation of Windows 7 has been going for 5 years strong and I have no intention of changing that.

So, what are some good free apps/games that a kid would like? I don't know apps or kids. :lol

Ah yea I hear ya with that small screen because I recall finding a lot of things easier to do in PC mode, which I didn't think of when you were saying this is a small tablet.  That sounds miserable and the fact that Microsoft so quickly went to Windows 10 shows to me they know 8 was shit  :lol

I'm still on Windows 7!

I'm back on 7 on my new PC build.  I want to upgrade back to 10 though.  10 is much better after using it for awhile, 7 feels slow.  However, 7 is a solid build so I can see why people don't want to upgrade.

Umm... maybe? If I had a 10 year old daughter, I'd expect her to love monster trucks or live out on the street. It's free. If she doesn't like it, you can just delete it. Angry Birds is a good time waster for kids.
