Well, I'm OK with a new computer having windows 10.  I just don't want it on the desktop, because that is more for games, and I've heard of lots of people having worse performance after upgrading. 

Since Morrowind is literally pixel people with potato frame rates, I'm OK with that.

Edit: Computer specs do look good.  However it's currently unavailable for the UK :(

Eh, I don't mind.

I mean, I planned on installing Morrowind so I could waste time in the office in a more interesting way, but given how old that game is I'd be surprised if any computer had trouble running it.  So beyond that, I don't especially care.  That said, more power would be helpful for running newer iterations of office, multiple internet browsing tabs etc, so sure, why not.  GPU doesn't need to be flashy, but a nice processor and decent RAM is never bad.

SSD is unnecessary though.

Woot finally tamed the windows 10 beast.

No more random windows defender, no cortana spying on me, and no more one note always running.

You uninstalled Windows 10 as well?

With the work email system down yet again, I am writing a proposal that we build a semaphore line between the two college accommodations and the main school office.

Not because I want one implemented, as fun as it would be. But because I cannot abuse the maintenance department and trolling them with this proposal is the next best thing.

I hope they take it like SO SRS BRO! Either rage flouncing or complaining to the wrong folks would be good, actually wasting resources to "look into" something that should be dropped out of hand would be godly!

Basically like half my job right now is trolling maintenance.  I like the guy who does most of the actual fixing of stuff, but the guy at the top...he's a typical Engineer Dick ("I know everything because I'm an engineer").  In addition to that, he's a typical army dick ("I know everything because I was in the army").  So he's like two condescending twats in one package.

And since I rarely ever actually have to see him, all my nonsense normally has to be dealt with my boss.  So really it's win-win as far as I'm concerned.

So, Inland Revenue finally returned the money they over-taxed me for a couple of years back, and I'm looking to spend some of my newly re-acquired wealth on a laptop.

I'm thinking a Dell Inspiron 15.  I mostly want something for travel, word processing and internet browing, but I thought I'd solicit feedback here as well.

What's your ideal cost? Also, what is the most you would pay?

I'm looking at around 500-700 for spending.  Not sure what that is in Trumpbux exactly.

The final figure, at least, is in the right ballpark - politifact examined some claims in April which gave Clinton 2.4 million more votes than Sanders.  Taking into account recent losses, that number seems in the area of being right.

If she is, they better go after Condi and Powell too.

Seems like this was SOP for Secretaries of State, going by what I've read of the most recent report (not much, admittedly).

But they probably wont be, because the Bush years are like some sort of fever dream which, if you go by people who are actually in politics, never actually happened.

You know, it's not easy to find designs for door-activated traps which definitely won't kill people.

Admittedly, this could be because I have liked a thousand terrorist manuals on my HD, and non-lethal options usually aren't of much interest in those circles.

I'm not quite at TGRR levels of being able to upset people yet, but on the other hand, wounding the inner child of teenagers is much easier, especially when they let it loose so often.

Oh, I did use the accomodation service to get my suit cleaned.  My boss is aware of this, and is likely paranoid I have a job interview, going by his recent behaviour.

I don't, but he doesn't need to know that.

Which charges are we talking about, the students or management?  :lol:

In the case of the former, I've had to oversee the departure of one student, I've harassed another 11 or so about their disgusting fridges, I've not let one have an extra blanket because his wife is staying over for a couple of days, I told 3 they couldn't smoke in the carpark and that they have to go to the designated smoking area, I've had to chase up and talk to another 2 about the late night guest policy and why making me run all over the building looking for them at kicking out time is not going to win my love and affection, I've kicked out at least 4 dividers being used to hold the self-locking fire doors open because apparently carrying a key is a huge burden, I was given blatantly obvious information to give to a student who had already been given the same information at least 4 times earlier that day and I've had to tell two fast food delivery guys to shove off after being exceptionally rude to my assistant in reception when they couldn't see me in the office (and thus thought she was on her own), I've indirectly led to 3 students getting a final warning for smoking, and I've gone to great lengths to explain when another 16 students are being kicked out and what they need to do.

That would be the last 3 days.

I haven't done anything especially to annoy management, except point out how no-one else in this building except me is apparently capable of filing and updating paperwork without their hand being held and a step-by-step guide being produced for it.

Currently taking bets on someone breaking into my flat while I'm away this weekend.

Anyone?
