  1. I didn't pay for all these pixels to get them all smeared like peanut butter
  2. But you're not posting about them, you're posting about people who receive $15/hr, benefits, and overtime pay that voluntarily work there. And you're using this as some sort of moral high ground that you're ethically opposed to people being treated this way, but still buy the same products that actual sweatshops were probably used to produce. It's almost as though you just want to be contrarian (i.e., "everyone uses Amazon so I won't"). I'm pretty sure there's bigger things to be upset about than a company paying their workers over twice the nationally mandated minimum wage, but those aren't as important for some reason. Which is really what bothers me here: your ethical outrage only extends as far as your inconvenience. You can say you don't use Amazon and only suffer a minor inconvenience of having your packages delivered later, but giving up your smartphone or computer because some components were produced by workers making less than a dollar a day is out of the question.
  3. You're okay with the poorly paid and overworked factory workers in China or similar but you draw the line at Amazon warehouses when shopping for your things online?
  4. You could just host your own webpage. You would need to buy a domain probably for what you want but if it's just for an internal network you could do it for free.
  5. We ain't leaving our solar system. Maybe there is a race of hyper intelligent beings that could figure out but that ain't us fam. So it really doesn't matter ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  6. Use Window's Task Scheduler. With that you can set it to run your email program.
  7. In Adobe's case it's one of the reasons they've achieved the overwhelming marketing dominance they have.
  8. I dislike those arguments, not because I disagree with your conclusion, but because it's what's known as a generalization argument and those sorts of arguments leave a bad taste in my mouth. For instance, it's not okay for me to be an engineer because if everyone was an engineer then no other jobs that would be needed would be completed. This is why it's considered to be fallacious. The ethics of intellectual property is pretty straightforward. You don't need to use any justifications for why people should be permitted to sell their intellectual property in the way that they choose, I mean it is property that is owed just like a house or your car, which can be licensed out. But what's failed to be mention is the actual rationality or effective business strategy of such a system. Going after a bunch of individuals who probably otherwise wouldn't be able to afford or don't really have a lot of money to use your system is a bad business strategy for Microsoft. Some companies (Disney, Apple, Nintendo) take a very hard stance against anyone infringing their IP (or ironically their hardware they sell to you), while others (Adobe, Microsoft) will mainly only target people who have become a problem. This is part of their business strategy. It's really not up to you decide how companies should enforce their IP since it's their IP. A defining difference between these companies tends to be the business market interest of their product. Microsoft makes a literal killing off of its business suite products and so does Adobe. So do they really care all that much if some young kid is using their product didn't buy a $100 license? Not likely provided there isn't a great deal of them. And for software specifically you could try very hard to lock down your software Denuvo style but it's likely to get defeated anyway and you'll have spent millions of dollars in development costs trying to do it. And litigating these people who are difficult to track is too difficult. This makes it uneconomical to do. This is what I mean by a bad business strategy. Businesses want to turn a profit and when managed correctly, they avoid actions that would result in sinking money into something that would only generate negative PR and net a negative return on investment. For companies like Apple and Nintendo, the consumers are their demographic, not enterprise level customers, so they have a stronger interest in preventing customers from obtaining their software free. And you won't see me shedding a tear for the most profitable company in the world that has more money than they know what to do with and reached that state through less than ethical business practices.
  9. Have you tried using linux subsystem for windows?
  10. I'm not an expert on your machine so I don't know. I would try a different hard drive.
  11. What you described is usually the case of hardware failure, and it's probably your SSD that failed.
  12. 1) Seems silly, but double check to verify the parts are compatible (that is, qualify a problem actually does exist). 2) Verify that the fault isn't physical (the drive isn't seated correctly, the ports aren't corroded or damaged). 3) Verify that the fault isn't because your motherboard has some errors with having only a drive loaded into its m.2 slot. 4) Verify that the fault isn't because of a faulty drive.
  13. And there are games that don't. Anyway for game design the only real choice is C++, or C# if you have your heart set on Unity, anything else is imo a mistake.
  14. Aw man you forgot the RGB didn't you? Look man PCs these days won't boot unless without at least one RGB component. You should probably expand on what kind of error you receive. The more specific the better.
  15. I can't stand when I sit on my leg weird and then it goes numb.
