Mobile site bug: Quote doesn't, well, quote.

12 November 2015 - 10:51 AM

When I choose any of the quote buttons in the mobile site, the focus is immediately changed to the reply entry field. However, the quoted text doesn't show in the field like on the desktop site.

Can this be fixed?

About the Windows 10 spying issue...

First, I'll admit that my knowledge of networking ends once I plug the Ethernet cord into the back of my computer. To this day, I haven't written a single line of networking code and wouldn't know how if I tried. Still, I'm curious...

Wouldn't it be possible to write a small program that looks at network traffic coming from the machine and blocks anything originating from Windows? So what if I cannot tell Windows to not send telemetry data. Why does that mean the data ever has to make it off of the machine or has to make it off in a format that is understandable by Microsoft's servers?

Shadow of Mordor... OMG! Why?

I finally downloaded it on Steam. The controls for the PC are NUTS! Never before have I found myself yelling at my computer! "Why are you doing that?" "NO! Climb the wall!" "Why are you standing still?! MOVE!" "OMG! Why is it doing this?!" "NO! Jump DOWN!" "Why are you sneaking?! I'm not pressing the sneak button! MOVE!" "Where am I? Why can't I see?" "NO! Don't climb the wall! RUN!"

I can go on! If you are one of the developers responsible for this abhorrent control system, please post here so I can smack you upside the head!

Leave This Group button?

What is this? What group? I've come perilously close to pressing this on my phone and it is on every forum. What would happen if I did?


So, I upgraded to Windows 10...

I am currently testing a SSD from NewEgg as one of their "Eggxpert Reviewers", so I thought why not? I installed Windows 7 on the SSD and upgraded. I have to say... I'm actually not all that unhappy with it. I was expecting to hate it and have a fresh copy of Windows 7 installed on another drive just in case, but it's not bad. There are some interface elements that I don't like, like the lack of a visible title bar in a window and the tiles in the start menu, but I am greatly relieve that it didn't default to that abhorrent tile interface!

 

Anyone know how to remove that "Search the web and Windows" field from the task bar? dry.png I can do without that...
