    I'm with RG on this one. I started doing fewer incrementals and diffs years ago. Now I only do full backups unless there is some really strong reason why I cannot.

    And the reasons are the same...

    Last time I had a weird font problem, it took a complete Windows reinstall to cure it. This was a long time ago mind you but the font system has hardly changed at all since then.

    For instance...

    The problem with malicious code in hardware is that the plausible deniability goes away. You know who sourced the product and who is responsible for that exploit. Since hardware is rarely upgraded...

    I often get these. There's a Retry button on that dialog; punch that and I've found it always works.

    Whether Windows needs prodding to wake up and notice there's no activity, or a second or two...

    If it's your company's website, presumably you have privileged access. Even if you aren't the webmaster you should be able to access that individual.

    Therefore you ought to be able to simply copy...

    I decided to dig a little deeper on this matter. It appears that colour support in a font definition isn't an entirely new idea but it's pre-standardization.

    I too have this problem. It doesn't happen every time the computer suspends. Sometimes I lose just the keyboard, sometimes both the keyboard and mouse. It's annoying but I do an unplug/replug...

    Most likely, WMP is downloading the skins to the wrong place or otherwise doing something dumb. The issue is almost certainly a confusion between the 32 and 64 bit handling Microsoft has put in...

    I agree with RG but I'll elaborate a little more.

    - if you tried to keep your recovery media current with every patch and update you'd go mad. It's too much work and most updates don't affect the...

    I would add that some of the most basic emojis can be found in symbol sets. You can find the happy and sad faces in the Wingdings font for instance. However you did specify colourful.

    I don't think that fonts code for colours, I believe that is a style attribute applied at the time of use. And thus I don't believe that typical emojis are coded as fonts.

    Yes, when I inspected...

    My opinion, power and reboot cycles need to be based upon your priorities, and less so on the machines. I'm not convinced that the lifecycle considerations on the hardware are significant enough to...

    It's always short-sighted to suggest "why didn't so-and-so stop with such-and-such". Time moves on. Conditions change. And vendors want to remain relevant and continue to have a business model.

    For one thing, it's hubris at best and marketing bumpf at worst to claim "100% unhackable". There are no such systems. Security is a...
