Interestingly, you now have the option to "remove" IE11 from Windows 10 via the "add/remove windows features" control panel.

I was rather wondering how this would work, as a lot of software still uses IE as a rendering control for rich text and images and stuff, so just deleting IE from a Windows machine would likely cause problems in other stuff.

But it looks like IE is actually still quietly available as a rich text control even if you remove the standalone browser.

Scalzi pretty-much mirrors my assessment of the whole Trump thing.
A friend of mine not from the United States said to me the other day, and this is pretty much a direct quote, “Seriously, dude, your country is scaring the shit out of the rest of us with this Donald Trump thing.” To assure him and others, a few points, covered by others to be sure but worth ...

Somebody uploaded a bunch of tiny pixelated PD animations to opengameart. Just looking at 'em makes me want to make them into a game.

Bill Gates: I got ten billion dollars. Can I build an Iron Man suit?
Melinda Gates: No, you gotta do something really good first.
Bill Gates: <sigh> fine.

Oh wow. August 1985 I packed my bags, got into my 1976 Oldsmobile, drove to College Station, and never returned to Arkansas save for brief visits to my parents.

That means I'll have been in Texas for 30 years come next month. Damn.

Reminds me of the cub scouts who would show up to the old hobby rocket launches with camouflage-painted rockets.

There's a reason traffic cones are bright orange, kids :)
 
Any solution?

Oh happy. Make that little "this tab is playing sound" icon double as a mute control.
 
You probably want to click this.

Hi there!
Introduction
(my byline from the Gamedev Collection series, which I co-edited) John Hattan has been working steadily in the casual game-space since the TRS-80 days and professionally since 1990. After seeing his small-format games turned down for what turned out to be Tandy's last PC release, he took them independent, eventually releasing them as several discount game-packs through a couple of publishers. The packs are actually still available on store-shelves, although you'll need a keen eye to find them nowadays. He continues to work in the casual game-space as an independent developer, largely working on games in Flash for his website, The Code Zone (www.thecodezone.com). His current scheme is to distribute his games virally on various web-portals and widget platforms. In addition, John writes weekly product reviews and blogs (over ten years old) for www.gamedev.net from his home office where he lives with his wife and daughter in their home in the woods near Lake Grapevine in Texas.
