MiniDoom 2 reimagines the classic shooter as a delightfully dark 2D platformer http://tnw.me/xAu4b6b

OMG NetGear support is the pitts. They never call when they are supposed to, you or reply to the emails, and seem to have no idea what they are doing.
Clicking around in my router admin and saying "it should all be working now" NO!!!
I had to even explain to them that they can access my router remotely and do not have to Remote into my desktop.
I did not want them using my desktop and stopping me from doing anything else, so I setup a virtual machine for them to use. They didn't even understand what a virtual machine is.

Well 2016 was a horrible year. My business and livelihood destroyed by my narcissistic business partner "Rob Edsell", who drove the company into insolvency with bad business decision and refusal to listen to sound advice, and then abandoned us and all the customers leaving me to deal with the mess.
Lets hope 2017 is a better year, and this will certainly be the last time I put my trust in anyone.

just picked up a new beer "Fosters Rocks", Lager with Rum, it is rather nice, I wish I had bought more now.
I normally wouldn't touch fosters either, so its was a pleasant surprise.

just upgraded to windows 10, I must say I like it more than I thought I would, it is very slick, everything works, the start menu/start screen synergy actually works, you have to actually try it though, going by the screenshots is not enough.
I would definitely say Windows 7 users will be happy as will the Windows 8 haters. It caters for both camps nicely.
Here is a complete review: http://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10-review

I will be upgrading all my other devices.

While installing some kids games on my kids tablets recently and I noticed that almost all of it is spyware.
Almost  every popular free game or app I went to install said that it would be monitoring all incoming and outgoing calls, get caller details, get contact details, monitor my WIFI network and all connected devices, etc.
This means that these apps will know who you call, who called you, their name and number and any other details you have in your contact list, your WIFI network details and all the devices connected to your WIFI network. And all this info will be send back to the app developers for them to use or sell as they wish.

All pretty scary stuff, and  which obviously relies  on the fact that most people, especially kids will just install anything without first reading the permissions it will have on your device.

So be warned  and be wary, block your kids from installing apps and make sure you check what permissions any app wants when you try to install it. You should also check any of the apps you already have installed.
There is no valid reason for most  apps to be monitoring your calls, WIFI and contacts.
