  1. some Peoples profile pictures aren't loading

    I am only seeing the issue on the desktop client (web) with @ImHyperstyle's profile. Come to think of it, I've also seen it on my desktop when I had it temporarily connected to the internet over Wi-Fi. The issue was gone when I was using ethernet.
  2. Need an Expert.

    Yes, TransMac is just a program you install on Windows. http://www.acutesystems.com/tmac/tmsetup.exe That is the link for the Windows installer.
  3. some Peoples profile pictures aren't loading

    I've been seeing this for a few days and have been meaning to report it. I've mostly seen it on mobile, but the user's pictures work on the desktop client.
  4. Run CrystalDiskInfo and check the health of the drive.
  5. Need an Expert.

    What format is the drive in? Was it only used on a Mac? If so, it's probably HFS+ which isn't readable by default on Windows. If this is the issue, TransMac is good for accessing these drives on Windows.
  6. I wouldn't try to game with your output going through USB. Does the laptop have Thunderbolt?
  7. Broadband sent over wet string

    I can only imagine that. “Honey, why isn’t the internet working? Did you water the connection?”
  8. Help with NAS Server Ideas

    You can use a standard computer as a server. I’m running a 9 year old machine 24/7.
  9. Turn off audio notifications for mobile

    Sorry about that. It is actually very annoying. I’m surprised nobody brought it up earlier.
  10. What should I upgrade?

    Running MacOS on a non Apple machine is a pain the ass. I know from lots of personal experience. It can be done, if you’re lucky, but don’t expect to have a great experience doing intensive things. You’ll have to ask elsewhere for help on it though as that’s Hackintosh.
  11. Turn off audio notifications for mobile

    I agree with this. I keep the ringer on my iPhone off all the time, but the music will randomly pause. It’s quite annoying.
  12. Help with NAS Server Ideas

    I use an old Core 2 Duo E7200. It was free and I get around 120MB/s reads and writes, so I can vouch for old hardware.
  13. Win XP booting problems

    I still see point of sale systems here running XP while the computers running the adverts for the digital signage are running Windows 10.
  14. Win XP booting problems

    True, it was. I used it right up until the support ended (not on my main machine, but on another machine) and it felt like the end of an era.
  15. Win XP booting problems

    Agreed. Windows XP's support has gotten really bad since it lost Microsoft's support in, holy shit that was almost 4 years ago???
