Stone Champion Defeated

Stone Champion Defeated (144/293)

  1. Auction is over for now. jchavoya, I was looking to sell the album for at least 100$. Does that sound like a reasonable price to you?
  2. Aaand yet again, I am auctioning a complete BIONICLE lamincards collection. For those unfamiliar with lamincards: BIONICLE lamincards are collectible, playable cards made of high-quality plastic featuring BIONICLE 2009 motives. They were released for a very limited time in 2009, and only in a few European countries (among those Poland, Italy and Germany). A total of 210 lamincards exist (160 motives plus 50 glitter editions). For graphic reference, see the following pictures from my first topic: https://www.flickr.com/photos/gatanui/23398559966/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/gatanui/23342180411/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/gatanui/23424735515/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/gatanui/23056748319/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/gatanui/22796368754/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/gatanui/23398548946/in/dateposted-public/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/gatanui/22796365504/in/dateposted-public/ Rules: General: The auction starts on 14th October, 2016 at 20:00 UTC and ends on 21st October, 2016 at 20:00 UTC.Bidding starts at 50$.The deal will only take place if my minimum price is met (minimum price will not be disclosed before the end of the auction).Payment: I only accept payments via PayPal.The shipping costs (see below) will be added to the cost at which the buyer acquires the album. The sum has to be transferred to my PayPal account for the payment to be considered complete. For maximum convenience, I encourage the buyer to send the total sum in one transaction.Shipping: I will ship as soon as the payment has entered my PayPal account. I will provide the buyer with a tracking number to track the shipping progress.By default, I will ship internationally in a padded letter or small box via DHL for 15,79 EUR (or 8,79 EUR, if you are a EU resident). If for whatever reason you desire the shipment to take place with a different shipping service, I will be glad to send you the set with a service of your choice That's it for now. Happy bidding!
  3. I'd worship you forever if you could upload the Flash file like you did for the Lewa animation.

  5. I voted for the Manas, my absolute favourite in this contest. I particularly liked entry #3 as well, though.

    Do you mean one of these?
  7. You think when kids have fun it's because they want to distract themselves from the thought of death?

    G1 Mystery Solved

    Wasn't it Matau that misheard "Keetongu" in such an unconceivable way?
  9. Meanwhile. Guess what, if you actually try really, like really hard to prevent an operating system from doing even the most basic communications, it will just keep trying them again and again until it succeeds. Here is another analysis of the traffic generated by Windows 10. I really don't want to be the local MS apologist or whatever but when I told you in the other blog that I sort of know my stuff when it comes to this issue, I meant it. I barely had to search for those two stories because I already knew them and I already knew what your second link was about before I even clicked it.

    Windows 10?

    The Cortana process running in the background is simply the app for search in the taskbar, which has the same frontend. Attempting to disable that will only cripple the functionality of your PC for, as I see it, zero benefit. Had Microsoft decided not to call that process "Cortana" but just "Search" there wouldn't even be this discussion, while in fact nothing would have changed.

    Windows 10?

    You should get notified if a program is deemed incompatible before the upgrade takes place, in which case you can decide accordingly. Most often, it's antivirus suites that are affected by this, but reinstalling the latest version after the upgrade should always be possible. Your personal files including the desktop should not be affected in any way.

    Windows 10?

    Macrium Reflect should create a backup image without tampering in any way with the drive you want to back up to - unless of course the drive needs to be properly formatted to be readable by Windows in the first place but unless the drive is being used by someone with OS X or Linux I don't think there should be a problem. You can set your connection as metered as a workaround, it just isn't a very good one. For one, only wireless connections can be set as metered, and second, this will prevent Windows Store apps from updating automatically - even if you don't download any apps from the Store, many programs that come pre-installed on Windows 10 are in fact apps that get updated through the Store, including but not limited to the default photo, music and video apps, mail, calendar, the Store app itself and even the calculator. Last but not least, the problem remains that even with this workaround there is no way to control beforehand which updates are going to be installed. However, I'd argue that for the vast majority of users, this should never be a problem but if you'd like the highest possible control over your OS then chances are you won't be happy with this (though then again, I'd question if Windows is indeed the right OS for you rather than Linux).
