    I can vouch for Discord best online chat program out there right now.  Kik isn't bad for mobile but Discord is great both on desktop and mobile.

    Yes, all of the voice/text/video/screen packets of discord are relayed through their own servers and the connection is not P2P (Peer to Peer). You can block the display of the following: link previews, images directly uploaded, image link previews. No, their are virtually no security problems with Discord as far as I know, you are able to set weather you'd like to scan all received DMs or not, who can add you as a friend and if you'd like to be able to receive DMs from fellow members in a server that you're in. Personally, I love Discord and will never go back to Skype.

    1. Can't tell
    2. You can block certain people and their message won't show up. You can also disable previewing pics/vids in discord. Not sure bout Kik
    3. Discord servers sometimes go offline for a while

    For printing you'll want 300 dpi, some people like to work at double the size to be able to downscale.
     
    In Gimp you can fill in the DPI and the physical size and you'll get a pixel amount too.

    i do this on purpose every time i change RAM, CPU or PCI cards.
     
    basically anything that is directly attached to the mainboard. (rarely do it when i only want to change minor things like harddrives or fans) 
     
    i switch off the PSU or pull the power cable, then push the power button once again to drain the mainboard and other components of any possible remaining charge, then i start working on the hardware. i believe that prevents me from accidently shorting something.

    Thank you all again & I may just start doing that but yeah this is my desktop PC. Yes power can be unstable here during storm season or whenever they're working on the nearby roads/highways. Had a Back-UPS Network 40 but upgraded to an SMC1000 by APC. I hope someday they make Lithium-ion 3000VA UPS's that're the same size as my 1000VA model or even smaller.

    won't harm anything by flipping that switch when your pc is off, just doesn't really matter unless power is super unstable, and since you have a UPS even that shouldn't be a concern

    you already have a UPS in front of your PC, then you really don't need to switch both of. I would keep both switched on, ok shut down the computer the usual way.
     
    For the switch on the PSU, there are enough good PSU out in the wild that don't have an off switch. Those are mostly for convenience.

    no, doesn't hurt anything, not even sure why you think you need to flip the switch on the power supply every time...

    No this usually doesn't damage your components. 
     
    You'll hear from many technicians that by doing that they make sure that there is no power left in the system, before they do any work on it. 
     
    The other question is, why do you use that switch? To save on the power bill? Or is there a problem with the power where you live that this might safe your machine once a short while every now and then?

    Whenever I'm elbow deep in a computer, I always do this to make sure the system is as drained of power as possible to both protect myself and to protect the system (of course I also use a grounding strap).
     
    I don't think it should cause damage, but I dunno. This IS my first comment and I could just be a dog behind a keyboard and screen.

    I've never had any problems with it. And to be honest, there's no reason I'm aware of to turn off the PSU after a shutdown unless you're transporting it or something similar

    Chances are if they have that many systems, they would be using a Managed Windows Service. Updates are performed differently and I find it's much more reliable.
    I'm running Pro and already got the 1709 update. Just keep forcing it to check for updates.
