    The mail one is fine, but calendar... Yech. Really looks like a generic placeholder logo, not a calendar.

    Its been working out pretty well for them since 1975. But of course, Microsoft with all their knowledge of the OS business, that they own 80% of, should to defer to you, Mr guy from the internet, about how they should run their company and what they should produce. It’s a long time since Microsoft had anywhere near an 80% share of the operating system market. False and to be clear, let’s not play games and we will refer to PC specifically since that is what they are on. That’s what they are on. Not most people anymore, sadly. That may be—but it doesn’t invalidate the 80% figure.

    Not surprising, officially supporting games on Linux is a PITA, even with a multi-platform engine like Unity it's a pain. You get bug reports from people, spend hours/days debugging only to find the "super tech savvy" person decided to compile their own kernel and disable a module or change a flag that they thought was unnecessary but wasn't. With only 0.1% of players using Linux dropping support was a no-brainer.

    I like the idea. A phone-sized device that turned into a tablet-sized device. It sounds good in theory. BUT... I'm not sure I could go back to a plastic screen. Especially a soft plastic screen. Look at pictures 5 and 6... the wavy screen would drive me insane. You know how DVD cases have a plastic sleeve covering the paper insert? I imagine that's what this screen feels like.

    Check out Greenshot. It's much quicker than using Paint for screenshots. It also has more features than Snip n Sketch or the Snipping Tool but is just as easy to use.

    Honestly, if your GTX 1080 plays everything you want at the moment I'd leave it. I have a RTX 2080 and while raytracing looks quite nice, you need to choose between having high resolution or raytracing, not both. I'm used to playing at 1080p so enabling raytracing in the games that support it still give me 60fps+, but if you're used to playing at 4k you would have to downscale the res back to 1080p (or 1440p at a push) to get > 60fps in the games that support raytracing. Blender does get a bit of a boost utilizing the RTX cores (~50% faster rendering the CUDA alone) but it's still not anywhere close to real-time. Whether this boost is enough to warrant the upgrade for you depends on how much modelling you'll be doing I guess.

    Performance-wise, a RTX 2080 Super would be a worthy upgrade from a GTX 1080 but it doesn't exist (only 2060 and 2070 Supers). If you're running at 1440p with a high-refresh rate monitor (120+ Hz), or 4K and don't want to drop far below 60fps, the RTX 2080 is a good shout.

    This is really impressive stuff. To be able to bounce a video call from your cell to your flat screen like that is bananas. I also like its speed.

    I always thought nobody played Rust. It was just one of those games we all had in our Steam library for some reason, from some sale or bundle long, long ago. Right up there with Broken Age and Mini Metro.

    I moved to Snip n Sketch. Most people will stand by the snipping tool, but I think Snip n Sketch is a good replacement.

    It has a learning curve, avoid official servers, best to play modded IMO, you can't let a few hours ruin the potential experience. I've made friends on there. If you do want to play vanilla, you'll need friends and it's a grind, but find a 10x modded server (the game has a very good server browser built in) and single play is much more reasonable. You can put a lot of effort into building a base and getting established, only to be raided, but that's part of the game. Do well and you'll be doing the raiding. There's no real objective, similar to minecraft, but there's plenty to do. Sorry to hear that caesar didn't figure out how to play it.

    You haven't missed anything really. A bunch of kids cussing or racist slurs on mics most of the time, pricks camping on their towers with way better prepared gear than what you start (you are naked and got a rock btw) and kill you on sight, get raided by hordes.. sums about all. Did I mention that you get killed on sight even if clearly you don't have anything on you? Yeah, tons of fun... NOT! I gave the game a try and a few wasted hours later wanted a refund, but cince went past those 2 hours Steam refunds I had to accept only the permanent removal of this crap from my library without a refund.

    Note that this is WordPad we're talking about, not Notepad. WordPad is a free word processor that Microsoft includes with Windows. It's basically like Microsoft Word, but much more barebones compared to the proper Office application. Notepad, on the other hand, is a text editor. That's not going anywhere, and that's not what this article is about. Read the site, they are taking Notepad out! it’s going to be a store app. First of all, the article does not mention Notepad at all, it mentions WordPad. Second, the app mentioned in the article to be a store app is the classic Paint app.

    "This means that both these apps will be uninstallable in a future release of Windows" Nice to see we're finally getting back some of the options we once had in Windows 95.

    Q. OMG, I got a warning! Now what? A. First of all, being assigned a warning on Neowin is not the end of the world (nor is it a badge of honour). We have an automatic warning reduction system that, after six months of good behavior, will reduce your warning level by 20% (currently it is offline for maintenance but we hope to get it up again soon, it's online again). Normally, warnings do not affect your use of Neowin in any way. You may notice that your warning level increased by 20% but it is invisible to all members other than staff so no one else will know that you are anything other than an angel. :innocent: If you think that your warning was not fair or just then you need to contact someone higher up on the chain of command. If your warning was from a fmod or a gmod then contact a Supervisor. If your warning was from a Supervisor then contact an Admin. Your challenge will be discussed at the upper levels and a reversal will be considered if your claim has merit. We seek to have as fair a moderation process as possible. What if this isn't your first warning? If you repeat a rule violation for the same thing that you were already warned about, or if you do something severe, you may be told that you cannot post for a few days. It is also possible for us to selectively remove your access to certain features of the site (profiles, particular subforums) either temporarily or permanently. Generally, we are pretty conservative when it comes to applying these sorts of restrictions. Remember, we warn you because we love you. :wub: There have been a several formerly difficult members who eventually adapted to our rules and have become very productive members. You know who you are. Well done. Q. So why does Neowin have rules anyway? A. Neowin's community rules serve three main purposes. They protect members from abuse. Neowin wants members to respect other members at all times. Members should feel free to express their opinions without being personally attacked by online bullies. This is not Survivor:Neowin where the most aggressive member left standing is the winner. Neowin is both diverse and international and thus we are trying to maintain a friendly community here. Thus we do not want to see examples of hatred towards any group (race, sex, orientation, nationality or religion). They protect Neowin from legal trouble. Some of the rules are designed to protect Neowin. We don't want minors seeing graphic material (even over your shoulder). We don't want to risk lawsuits by tolerating discussion of hacks, cracks or warez. We don't have a legal budget so we need you to do your part. They prevent additional work by the staff. We do not want to be constantly cleaning out topics that contain examples from the above two points. Thus we assign warnings to members who cause us work (like cleaning up flame wars) in the hope that they will learn and not do it again. I would also like to remind everyone that moderators cannot be at all places at all times (although we try :p). We need members to assist us by reporting potentially inappropriate content or conduct. Thank you for your support and, hopefully, for your understanding. Q. Why does Neowin not wish members to discuss their private warnings in public threads? A. Members tend to provide one-sided or inaccurate information that would then cause us to respond to clear up the miscommunication. We do not want to be tempted to reveal private or personal information to "prove" our case publicly. Please contact us privately so no one else has to see the dirty laundry. For the time being I will leave this thread open for mature discussion but if there are any public discussions about particular warnings they experienced it will be closed and potentially cleaned right back to this solitary post. If you wish to discuss your warning privately then please do so with the original moderator. If you do not receive the answer that is acceptable to you then contact a Supervisor. If you still do not think that you have been dealt with fairly then you are free to contact an Administrator. The forum staff hierarchy is as follows (most powerful first): Administrators > Supervisors > fmods/gmods

    Not sure which ad redirects my browser on my phone, but lately I've been getting redirects to apps on the Google Play store. This is the url that's in the address bar when I switch back: https://143722.api-04.com/serve?action=click&publisher_id=143722&site_id=43754&invoke_id=13560&sub_publisher=473756&publisher_sub1=406797654&publisher_sub2=104

    I don't mind ads, but the redirects ruin the reading experience as you need to go back, back, back and end up at the home page again... Or if I'm listening to music and a video ad automatically pops up, then my listening is ruined as you have go back to the music app to replay your song, WP fault I know but hey, love Neowin and these things will make me go elsewhere for my fix... Thanks Adam

    10 posts in 12 years and you're complaining about the ads? Well, ok. I guess. I reckon you have learned a lot about tech from this site without ever spending a penny or making nary an attempt to participate in the forums. Pretty cool, huh?! Anyway, farewell and have a good life, brah!

    Speaking of which, any developments with running the next round of reductions or is that still on the backburner? ;)
