  • Re: Sysadmin Reformat WTF

    I usually access power options by keyboard. With Start Menu that's a tap on the Windows key, then two times right arrow. With Windows 8/2012 it's Win+C, Down, Down, Enter, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Right, Enter. Such improvement!

    [quote user="locallunatic"]Remember to check your spam filters, lots of people were saying the password emails for discourse were getting flagged.[/quote]The password reset e-mails didn't even reach my e-mail server, so no, they did not get caught in a spam filter.

  • Re: Sysadmin Reformat WTF

    [quote user="KillaCoda"]Seriously? How is it Microsoft's fault that you missed the incredibly simple, two click way of restarting/shutting down (right click for menu, left click for selection)? There's two basic ways to interact with an icon: left click and right click, how is it not...
