can you take that poo poo to the outlook thread? were talking about big macs

atm in nz theyíre having a big mac promotion and you can get a small mac which is like half a mac and also a grand mac which is basically mac but as wide as a quarter pounder

they should definitely make a quarter pounder mac

I believe this is true and microsoft accounts are going to be mandatory now so it will essentially be impossible to not have a password.

lol skype was bought by MS in 2011. teams released in what.. 2017? no way they were thinking that far ahead.

slack and discord came out somewhere in between and ms has been trying to catch up to them ever since

discord is good because it refuses it let you get notifications to one than one logged in device at once and you canít respond to pleas for help if you donít get notifications for them *taps head*

I forget, was there any hype leading up to windows 11? I remember a lot of buzz before 8 and 10 but 11 just showed up one day and I havenít had the energy to care

a few hours ago after a reboot i discovered that my audio output in windows had been set to mono. i guess at some point i must have accidentally clicked the button to enable mono output when i was changing output devices as i often do.



why microsoft decided to put that option front-and-centre in the sound settings is beyond me. literally the last thing anyone would want to enable.

lol I have it enabled


the sound system I use to make sound on my windows machine has one broken channel so I have both speakers running in parallel (I think) from the one channel that works and windows set to mono so I donít miss anything

I also have a car subwoofer (a dual voice coil 12Ē running at 2 ohms off a large class D car amp) and I power the amp with a pc power supply which has all the 12v rails soldered together lol. itís never caught fire. iím amazed it can power the amp considering itís designed to be run off a car power system lmao

I'm looking at my Windows 10 right now and I can't see any difference between programs that are open with a window, open maximised, and open minimised.

there are things you can turn off in the registry to prevent windows from taking your freedom away from you

itís harder than ever to force windows to run without a password (so a restart takes it back to desktop) but itís possible

in the windows mail app, if you copy an email address from chrome or whatever it might literally copy into the clipboard "mailto:sagebrush@egghead.com" and when you paste that into windows mail you have to manually delete the "mailto:" a scenario so rare of course the devs never thought to address
