When I look at the people who have gotten "canceled" over things they posted on the Internet, it's disproportionately GenXers.   Why is that? I think it's the awkward timing. GenX grew up on BBSes and Usenet which were a free for all.  It wasn't until the Millennials and later GenZ came on the scene that the raunchy, insensitive, or intentionally trolling behaviors of GenX got us into trouble.

I've been saying this a lot to design teams lately: There is no subsitute for playing the game and then playing the game some more and then playing it still more. And Warlords really shows that. Now, those of you who get it right away are in for a particular treat that you should take advantage of as much as you can while you can:  There are a lot of absolutely crazy ship components in this that we have balanced as best we can but I can tell you right now, I there are going to be some...

I'm looking for some high quality (512x?) icons suitable for large Start 11 icons. I like to have my custom icons take up most all of the space and there's a few items on the start menu from OD that need some attention.

I'm wondering if there's an easy way to get apps downloaded from the Windows store, onto ObjectDock. Generally apps appear in the dock when you open the app, and you can pin them to the dock from there, but apps downloaded from the Windows store, Facebook Messenger for example, do not appear to work that way and they're stored in a hidden, inaccessible folder so you can't just create a link to them. Is there a work-around to this?

Moment 5's now available for download. Neowin published a great guide at the external link above for W11 systems fulfilling MS's official requirements as well as those which don't. They also provided a link to explain M5's new features . When it comes to updates, I've learned to be shall we say...cautious. I'm not advocating "force updating" simply because I figure there will be many changes and "hiccups" before the mandatory update appears...and even then I tend to put things off a bit t...

For a deep dive into the expected changes to Windows 11, here's an excellent article sent to me by my trusty source Hankers of the Frozen North. Thanks, buddy. You've inspired me in many ways, and have been a great mentor. I expanded on your tip because of the appearance of subsequent additional important articles quoted here. The Windows 11's 24H2 Update will require hardware that supports POPCNT (SSE4.2 or SSE4a) . I remember predicting in a prior article regarding W12, just this kind ...

I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I can't. I don't know if it's true, but I expected this. Just like W11...which W12 will be, or 24H2, Hudson Valley or Next Valley...a rose by any other name.  New chip and RAM requirements. Apparently 16 GBs of RAM for your CoPilot, a new keyboard with a CoPilot key, Lunar Lake chips as Meteor Lake chips have too few operations per second for AI: "For reference, the current Intel Meteor Lake CPUs run at 34 TOPS, making them ineligible to power...

Hankers sent me a link...that's my "get busy, slacker" from the frozen north... It'd be well worth your while to check out the article, as this looks like the likely future 9since Panos Panay has departed) slated for September 2014 (grain of salt, here). Actually, Bowden's article at Windows Central was quite interesting and informative. "Unlike version 23H2 from last year, version 24H2 is expected to be a much larger OS update based on a new version of the Windows platform that brin...

Now....let's see if I got this right....[it's been a little while since the last formal post]. Long ago, in a Galaxy far, far away [March, 2001], Wincustomize.com was created. Slowly, evolving out of the Primordial Swamp there came Users. With the relentless March of Time there were Promotions. [People are promoted due to their involvement with the site and its Community, sometimes through artistic prowess, other times through Forum interaction.] Many of this current bunch of rec...
