    I agree with your first point and disagree with your second.

    I have no interest in sports and don’t really understand how some “sports fans” can get so worked up about the games or “their” team. I see no reason to call them idiots because of that.

    I’m a gamer (PC). I know that some people really think that video games are stupid or “for children” or whatever the case may be. These days, games are a lot like interactive movies, although the media never seems to show that aspect of it.

    I don’t call people names because they have different interests than I do.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    1) “Its” was stating something entirely different than what you are talking about.

    2) The reason that you see ads related to what you shop for on the internet is because of “tracking” cookies. They CAN be deleted if you choose to do so.

    You’re welcome.

    Linux Mint is pretty complete but you may need to update the graphics driver.

    The current version of Linux I’m using is KXStudio. It’s ideal for audio/video editing, though I did have to configure it a bit more than just updating the graphics driver. I have a dual-boot setup with Windows 10.

    “Apparently merchandising sites can and do use these to tailor their advertising.”

    Not happening – you can relax.

    These days Linux is quite good and can do everything that Windows can do (though it isn’t as good as Windows for gaming).

    The only down side, is that fresh installs may require a bit more “setup” than Windows – which makes it less than ideal for the average computer user.

    Hi Monk -

    I have Boot And Nuke and it’s great, provided you have an OS install disk. I do, but most people that buy pre-built PCs don’t – so they are stuck doing a system reset.

    *Warning – DON’T attempt to do a system reset if you have upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 – the upgrade breaks that feature! Nice job, Microsoft!

    “Some hackers have figured out how to remotely turn a computer’s recording devices on.”

    That requires software that isn’t part of the operating system. Trojans, rootkits/bootkits and other malware is generally how it happens.

    If you don’t download and install random programs from the internet this won’t happen to you. Also, if you ever buy a used computer, you should reset the system to factory defaults before using it.

    What are they doing in this country in the first place?

    Oh…that’s right – the Democrats and Rinos just keep allowing them to come here.

    But of course, we don’t dare stop allowing THAT, eh?

    I’ve seen this before, but I’m still amazed at how much of a wuss this guy is.

    Geez – I was shooting a .30-30 at 12 or 13 years old and THAT actually does have some recoil.

    The people that support “Net Neutrality” do NOT understand how the internet works. In the past (here) I’ve attempted to explain this NON-issue to people – to no avail. Therefore, I will no longer waste my time trying to do that.

    If you want the truth about why “NN” is nonsense; Nick explains it very well:

    No – it’s one shot per trigger pull – not to mention that the bullet is equivalent to a .22 caliber.

    Of course, you and most liberals don’t know anything about anything; so I’m not surprised at your idiotic post.

    I WILL be seeing “Warcraft” because I played World of Warcraft for five years – it truly was an epic experience – at least, in the beginning (before Blizzard changed the game for the worst).

    I’ll probably eventually see TC2, but I’m sure things will be highly exaggerated. I’m still fascinated by the subject though.

    “President Barack Obama called the shooting that took place at Pulse nightclub in Orlando an “act of terror” and an “act of hate.””

    Gee…ya’ think? That’s YOUR “peeps” Obama and despite your lies – Islam is NOT a religion of peace.

    “…she met Mateen online about eight years ago and moved to Florida and marry him…”

    Tough. Go back to Slobovia.

  • [1] June 11, 2016 at 4:57pm

    I agree with you.

    This is terrible. I hate this world sometimes (quite often, actually).

    You would be quite surprised at how many good vocalists actually do exist in metal. This old man (despite his efforts) does NOT sound good at all.

    “Let the bodies hit the floor” is not a good example of metal. I really can’t stand the “scream-o” or guttural-demon-sounding-vocals of certain genres of metal. I prefer the more melodic vocals with singers that can actually sing. This seems to be a bit rare with newer metal bands, but it was common in the past.

    I stand corrected regarding the ARPANET – it was the first large computer network system (though a smaller network using two mainframes was done before that).
