    status bar height

    I am trying to increase the status bar height on my dragon touch tablet. I found and app called status which has a setting called status bar height. I tried increasing the size but it is not adjusting. Anyone familiar with this app know how to solve this? If not, is there another way or app that can accomplish this? thx
  5. Seems to me the garage door won't have to open completely to get a parcel in. It only need open slightly wider to accommodate the size of the delivery.
  6. It only makes sense if the drivers are somehow subsidised.
  7. likely the same issue @Raphaël G. has run into with Dopamine. since it's not a 'signed/trusted' app many AVs throw a false positive.
  8. In my company 1809 is now the current standard now we consider it stable. Prior to that it was 1709. So we just have to patch two versions for 75,000+ users. Not a big deal. And I figure over the next few months more of those 1709 systems will be made 1809 systems as well? Is there any point where they'll all be 1809 systems or will something newer be added into the mix? They will all be upgraded to 1809 over several months. I can't imagine we'd upgrade our images to the 1903 build as it's too much work to upgrade everyone every 6-8 months. Easier to update every 12 months or so. Only those of us working in I.T are the ones who always want to upgrade to the latest release as soon as possible.

    Best MPEG2 Decoder & Encoder?

    I prefer Handbreak for larger Encoding/Decoding needs but for simple container switching or something I tend to use the ffmpeg command line tool
  10. Like I want interruptions by getting phone notifications on PC. This must be must have feature requested by millennia who do nothing but stare at the phone.

    Google Fit is now available on iOS

    And I am sure you wear a tinfoil hat too. Yes, our data is being siphoned off by someone the moment we go online, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't care about privacy. Yep, we should do everything we can to safe guard it. Then stop using your smart phone, computer and anything else internet related. Paranoid people such as yourself should disconnect.
  13. Wish Windows just did that automatically. Like a taskbar option that could be turned on.

    HP - New monitor or graphics card?

    Morning Thanks for the replies. You're fast! +DevTech, I have to leave in about 5 minutes. I will find the box etc. after I get home tonight. OS is Windows 10, that's as far as I can go off the top of my head. This year has been chaotic. I am leaning towards a monitor problem. I did a hard computer shutdown a minute ago because I won't be home today. Tried the monitor, it is still doing the same thing. Corinthian, I'm not sure I have another cable. I may have from an older machine; I'm hard on computers. Have at least 4 dead ones in my closet right now; been hoping someday to get hard drives pulled and shelled to use. Have a good day. Theresa
  15. "While supplies last!" 9_9
  16. Your actual Google account also has to be an email address also. As I use for my Google account and Nintendo account i'm totally out of luck. It's certainly a silly limitation.
  17. Must admit that I'm shocked. As a Mint user myself, I wish you well, friend. On my end, the only version of Windows 10 that is tolerable, is the LTSC version. Safe travels! Have 4 other computers with just Mint on them that I use way more often than the Windows 10 machines! Think I pretty much have the Windows machines tweaked to the max. The irony with Mint, is it has higher system requirements than Windows 10, with the exception of the HDD space. Now add in as much of what Windows 10 does, and see how well it runs on the same hardware. (Just the things you really might want, like a more advanced FS, integrity features, additional frameworks/libraries, etc. ) I can do a minimal install of Windows 10 in less than 1GB of storage space, and still have 20x the features and functionality of Mint, and it will run faster. (These are things you can even casually do yourself and benchmark in a VM.) I have a better idea. How taking away all the crap I have absolutely no use for and the majority of the rest of the world doesn't either, and see how much more space I have. How many people do a minimal install of less than 1GB or even use a VM in the real world? Remember, you're on a tech forum here which is a very small comparison of real world usage, and nobody is going to jump through all the hoops you've suggested in your posts. I know what the article is talking about as far as reserving space and I have no problem with that. My main point was that I simply don't like the way MS is going and all the issues with their updates.
  18. I never knew "Mixer" I only know That's new to me.
  19. Same here but I'm waiting for the general release of Pie and until the battery starts faltering I can't see any reason for a new phone. I'm also not seeing any phones around that tick all the boxes for me.
  20. Mixer's AI-powered rewards program Loot to launch on April 30 by Jay Bonggolto In 2017, Mixer launched a channel for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds that leverages Microsoft's HypeZone technology. The artificial intelligence-powered system works to scour select games for crucial moments and help viewers find streamers of potential interest to them during those highlights of the game. Mixer expanded HypeZone to Fortnite: Battle Royale early last year, and now it will be using the same technology for its new rewards program called Mixer Loot. HypeZone will work to scan for streams that may contain key moments and surface them to viewers. If you happen to watch a particular game that supports Mixer Loot, you can earn in-game content. However, Mixer Loot won't be available on all channels. To determine whether a particular channel is Loot-supported, simply look for the program's icon beside the stream's title. The rewards program will be rolling out from April 30 in time for the release of Sea of Thieves’ Anniversary Update, which will bring with it a whole bunch of new content and features like fresh story quests, Arena, and more. You can earn the game's Obsidian Six Item Pack by just watching 30 Sea of Thieves Arena matches on Mixer in full from April 30 (8 a.m. PST) to May 5 (11:59 p.m. PST). You can check the rewards you've accumulated by clicking the Loot icon on the stream page and heading over to the “My Loot” page in the settings page. Also, loots are redeemable on any gaming platform. It should be pointed out as well that the program is limited to only a single reward code per account per unique Loot opportunity.
  21. By now, millions of people have read about 'Anna Delvey', an alias used by Russian-born con artist Anna Sorokin, who became infamous after a New York Magazine story about her exploits - including scamming hotels and restaurants out of thousands of dollars, conning a friend into unwittingly paying for a $60,000 Moroccan vacation - went insanely viral last spring. Publishers rushed to secure book rights for her story, and Netflix has reportedly commissioned a series producer by "Grey's Anatomy"'s Shonda Rhimes. But Sorokin's blossoming fame wasn't enough to avert a guilty plea: On Thursday, she was found guilty on a charge of second degree grand larceny - a charge carrying a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison. However, she was acquitted of the most serious charge: Attempted grand larceny in the first degree over an attempt to swindle a hedge fund out of $22 million. Still, since she was reportedly living in the US illegally, once Sorokin has served her sentence, she will likely be deported. Here's more from The NYT: While Sorokin's defense attorneys portrayed her as a delusional liar whose behavior stopped short of criminality, prosecutors didn't mince words: Sorokin knowingly and intentionally conned people and businesses out of thousands of dollars during her multi-year crime spree. Not only did Sorokin swindle friends and the proprietors of some of New York's swankiest hotels and restaurants, she managed to convince a well-known attorney to represent her without needing to put up any 'proof' of the wealth she claimed back in Germany. Her lawyer helped her secure a $100,000 loan from City National, which she obtained by forging documents, then she turned around and tried to use that money to secure an even larger sum from a well-known hedge fund. Sorokin took the money she borrowed from City and tried to use it to swindle the hedge fund Fortress investment Group (a wholly owned subsidiary of Soft Bank) into handing over a $25 million loan. However, the firm eventually balked when Sorokin failed to provide proof of the money she said was held in an account in Germany. When the firm asked to see identification, she showed them a Russian passport, even though she claimed to have been born in Germany, which made the financiers uneasy, and they swiftly pulled out.
  22. To sign up, you need an Android device and a Gmail e-mail address on your Nintendo Account. Annoying.
  23. I like where they are taking this app. Specially since we know screen mirroring is on the way as well, so instead of having them try to add support for android apps into Windows and hope developers port them over etc. They'll just let you interact with your phone directly through this app while it sits on your desk, like it's part of the system with drag and drop options and so on.
  24. Good question, they might once they get more of the features they want added. Also by doing wifi for now it allows this to work with your desktops since you're on the same network in most cases.
  25. This level of integration might not be possible on iOS, it's way more locked down from Apple.
  26. In my company 1809 is now the current standard now we consider it stable. Prior to that it was 1709. So we just have to patch two versions for 75,000+ users. Not a big deal. And I figure over the next few months more of those 1709 systems will be made 1809 systems as well? Is there any point where they'll all be 1809 systems or will something newer be added into the mix?
