Wow! Adobe KnowHow has a ton of courses (on its software, of course)...some are free some are paid.

However, there's a programming course for absolute beginners...free...

Anyway, won't cost you anything to take a look.

 ## ASHES OF THE SINGULARITY IS EVERYWHERE ##We just came back from the Game Developer's Conference.   It was a great week for the Nitrous engine (the underlying engine used in Ashes of the Singularity).

Big News: AMD is bundling Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation with more and more CPUs  The hardware bundling keeps a steady stream of new players coming into our community.

Moreover, the AMD Ryzen chips, which are 8-cores, really show off the power of the game. As ...

While working on my Steampunk wall I wanted a complete Steampunk theme on my screen. So I downloaded Kitty's icon pack and cursor. I'm running the cursor now but CursorFX will not open when I click on either the shortcut or the exe in the folder. Same thing with IconPackager. With that I clicked on the .ip and nothing happened. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm really growing sick and tired of "reviews" from PC gamer and other rags who give games I really like bogus and totally unfair scores and games that are just total BS, good ones. Case in point, Ghost Recon is one of the most fun new games I've played in a while, yet PC Gamer in all their grandeur gave it a 6.7... In my opinion, that isn't fair. Then the same illustrious PC Gamer gave Resident Evil 7 a 9, and went on to rave like a drunk on a street corner about its greatness and i...

Got me a Lenovo laptop here. Not sure of the model, I know it's an IdeaPad 110, but they have many 110 models. This one has the Intel Core I3 with 6 GB of DDR4 memory and a 1 TB hard drive. Anyhow, I'm running Windows 10 and have it set to turn off the display after 2 minutes and sleep after 5 on both plugged in and battery. Now I don't have any programs stopping it from sleeping that I know of. I created a sleep button for my taskbar that works fine, but I would prefer the machine t...

If Republicans manage to find a way to screw up healthcare they will be damaged for decades to come... although, Democrats are already damaged for decades to come, so that may give may give Republicans wiggle room.
Spying on AliensGalactic Civilizations is a game that asks the question: What happens after we start colonizing other planets? For our purposes, we are going to assume that we will come into contact with alien civilizations.

Alien civilizations will have their own histories, cultures and ideals that we can only fathom.  In Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade, you will be able to train your citizens to learn more about these other civilizations and, if necessary, do very bad things to...

This is humor, as in the morbid variety.

The last line of the linked article is just too much.  And some ejumicayshun was presumably required to be granted the opportunity to write it.

Laugh of the day for me.

Can we have an extension on the day? Hows about a year without a Democrat?

I can't believe this Russia stuff is still going on. Its hard to imagine how any rational person out there would think Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to steal an election from Hillary Clinton. The people who claim the Russians are coming are the same people who claimed that the critics of the Benghazi terrorist attack explanation were just tin foil hat conspiracy theorists. Only 2 explanations for this absurd Russia fantasy can be used to explain the phenomenon. 1. Hillary Clinton ...

Recently updated Flash player for Chrome because the plugins would not load and that temporarily fixed the problem. Now its doing the same thing. Using TinyPic for image hosting instead of photobucket (too much of a hassle getting it work right). Installed FireFox and it loads the plugin on TinyPic but not here. Chrome won't load any plugins at all. Both the browse for preview and file are blank, no plugin loaded. What the blank can I do to correct this. No sense making skins if I can't ...
Leave your feedback here.  Will be sending this out soon.

This is a question that gets asked quite frequently, so with the help of Zubaz I wanted to put together this quick how-to on backup and restore your Fences layouts.

You can restore your snapshots if you are having issues with your current layout, or want to move them to another PC.

Layout snapshots

In the Fences configuration you can see your snapshot settings and a display of your current snapshots. You can also set Fences to take daily snapshots or manually take one.

Stumbled across this quite by accident...so, here it is.

The catalog can be found here: https://software.nasa.gov/NASA_Software_Catalog_2017-18.pdf 

It's far too long to quote, but there's just about anything you could want or need...

 "The NASA catalog also contains some super software which can help ordinary computer users. Here are some of the popular tools that have been open sourced by NASA:
