Was trying to give Microsoft Edge a try just to see if it wasn't terrible.

So far, it keeps taking away the spaces from all of my comments when I post multiple paragraphs, and it won't load the app to make Hangouts work.

Things are not looking good for the Edge.

Considering Windows 10 was reporting its version number as 6.4 (Vista was 6.0) up until a little while ago, I'd say there's a good chance Edge is Microsoft's idea of an 'optimized' version of IE.

I'm sorry, I couldn't resist one more.

So, Fox can't make Doom without either turning him into a reject from a Stephen King movie or a low rent version of Lex Luthor, and in the meantime, Marvel Studios constructs Thanos from cheese and CGI, and people cannot wait to see more of him?

BTW, I'm not criticizing Thanos or Marvel Studios.  That's doing it right.  Some villains are built primarily out of cheese, and that's okay.

If only Robert Z'Dar was still with us, he could play Thanos ...

Since the semester is over and I've got two weeks to iron out bugs, I upgraded the laptop to Windows 10.  So far no problems, but I've only done some cursory stuff up to this point.

This Lifehacker article does a great job of taking a level headed look at the perceived privacy issues:

http://lifehacker.com/what-windows-10s-privacy-nightmare-settings-actually-1722267229

Really nothing new if you're accustomed to using Android or iOS but it's Microsoft so there's a lot more evil empire/ harbinger of doom reaction online. Most of the settings are automatically opt in by default which is a big no no for some but it's a snap to change them in settings. If you take a moment during the install to do the custom settings, you can turn it all off before it ever even boots up.

+Ryan Porter, if you survive Gen Con and ever make it back to Central Illinois, I should have Guise by the time you have recovered enough to game unprofessionally again.

Watching Pacific Rim again. I wish I was 10 percent as cool as Idris Elba.

I liked him better in other stuff. They tried too hard to make him a badass. I would support him as Bond as the rumors went.

Saw a Dreamcast at the flea market. Was very tempted, but then I realized I would be going down the rabbit hole of getting all the old games I loved all over again. And maybe my Bleemcast to play Grant Turismo 2. Memories.

I didn't pick it up dear.  Besides, it wasn't pretty like my old Dreamcast.

May have pulled of straight As my first semester of school after 15 years away. Waiting for the official postings, but all signs point to yes.

I wonder if there are Vegas odds on someone at Fox uttering the phrase "is it too late to cut a deal to get an appearance in Civil War?"  this weekend?

I would bet on the side of already done. It's like the Deal or No Deal, every case (or movie) they open makes the property less valuable.

They should have screened the movie for Disney and ransomed NOT releasing it.

Because I chose to be positive, I prefer to say that Josh Trank is a huge fan of Marvel Studios.

I think I'm staying far away from Windows 10 until after all of my finals have been taken next week.  I really don't want to tempt fate and be the one guy that doesn't say "wow, that went really well, and hardly took any time at all."

Overall my upgrade went well, but it uninstalled Norton Security Suite. So I had room reinstall that.
