€8 is suspiciously cheap, retail is nearer €30. Is it genuine/ legit?

Probably better to ask in a dedicated Gamer's forum. This one is for tweaking.com games only.

General & Misc. / Re: Doubts about wireless devices.

Bluetooth wasn’t designed to provide high-quality audio; it was designed to deliver voice signals. For that reason, Bluetooth applies compression to music which degrades its fidelity.

Good quality wired headphones/ speakers win everytime in terms of music fidelity for me.

Have a read of this, it may help.

Forumites in the UK will be aware of recent WannaCrypt attack on the NHS.

MS has issued a security fix for legacy OS, that are in custom support only, XP and Win8....Kudos to MS for that  :smiley:

"We are taking the highly unusual step of providing a security update for all customers to protect Windows platforms that are in custom support only, including Windows XP, Windows 8"

Registry backup v3.5.2 (Portable)....Working great, thanks Shane.

A bit confused after reading "ManageACL_32 is now complied to not use SSE2 so it will run on older cpus." I've never had any problem running previous versions on my oldest machine (Intel Celeron 1.2GHz which only supports SSE)

Since Malwarebytes have taken over Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) they appear to have dropped Shane's Registry Backup in favour of creating a system restore point, if you don't use system restore it is probably best to do a reigistry backup prior to running JRT.

General & Misc. / It must be Spring.
« on: March 04, 2015, 01:01:13 PM »
It must be Spring.....Weasel meets bird, weasel falls in love with bird, weasel won’t let bird go – even when it flies off.

It made me and my kids smile. An amateur photographer took this amazing photo of a young weasel hitching a ride on a woodpecker.
