iTunes: Still Slowing Down Windows PCs After All These Years

Serk Family Tech Support Unsupported Clause (519 comments)

Being the typical Slashdot geek, I'm the default tech support for most of my family. I have very few "rules" in place seeing as this is informally helping out family members, but I've had to make it VERY clear to them that if iTunes is on the computer, I will not support the computer.

Microsoft Has Been Watching, and It Says You're Getting Used To Windows 8

Serk Upgrading from W8 to W7 (675 comments)

The sheer number of friends and relatives bringing their shiny new computers to me (The resident geek) begging me to upgrade them from Windows 8 to Windows 7 says otherwise...

I suspect most of these people did not voluntary opt into Microsoft's "Track Me" program either.

In the simplistic left/right divide, I'd call myself

Serk I'm a libertarian, so..... (639 comments)

I'm a libertarian, so I'm so far to the right, I'm actually on the left.

(or so far to the left, I'm actually on the right, if you prefer.)

Serk Re:WTF (496 comments)

cnn.com had been my home page since the early days of the internets, but after their latest redesign made my eyes bleed I couldn't take it anymore... Using news.google.com as my homepage now, although I'm casting about for alternatives... Tried BBC for a while, just didn't click with me...

Sum of the Cost of the Gadgets You Carry

Serk Re:Does it count? (767 comments)

Exactly what my first thoughts on this poll were... Although, I now carry a much less expensive sidearm - a Russian Makarov 9MM Makarov... Inexpensive (I paid $150 for mine, I think they've gone up recently though), tough, reliable, and safe...

I used to carry a Springfield Armory Micro 1911 in .45 ACP, but didn't like the idea of carrying around and banging up a $800 gun every day.
