    Windows 10 Slow Internet Problem

    So, this began when I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, with all drivers up to date and Windows updates applied. At this point, I have used Windows 7, 8, and 10 - the problem is persistent across 8 and 10. The only solution so far has been to use 7, which has immediately solved the issue...

    My Life

    So, I suppose is one of those stranger posts that we get now and then. The fact of the matter is I've been in continuous touch with some of the people on this forum than I have with friends in real life, not necessarily to say that this isn't real life - we have, on some level, developed...

    I posted this about a year ago when I was first working on it. I recently went through and did a more thorough revision and edit, changing some sentences around and trying to make it more fluid. Anyway, this is more or less a final version of the story and I thought I'd throw it up here, maybe...

    Deal With the Devil

    The story is basically about a man that accidentally becomes friends with the devil. I have about ten pages done, I expect it to be around three quarters or half way completed thus far. Anyway, this part of the story takes place in the early 1900's. It's primarily building up to climax, fairly...

    Request for People That Go to a Lot of Bars

    So I'm a cook, and the restaurant I work at has a full bar (our bar is bigger than our kitchen). Today, we were really slow, so I was bored and helping out at the bar since we had a few people drinking, which I've never really done before, so I was going through some of the books we have on...

    Has Anyone Tried the Treehouse Courses? Has anyone used this before? I'm considering getting a subscription as my ability at web development is meh, not much experience. Has anyone tried it yet? I'm wondering if it would be worth it, or if I should just teach myself like I usually do.

I want to split some of them apart, combine other similar brushes into one set, organize them a little, etc. However I have no idea how to do this; does anyone know of a...

    Non-Traditional Writing Styles

    I've been doing some more writing recently, and have been working on a novel of sorts that follows a few different people in the last days before the world. I want to use a different writing style for each story arc, and make some use of non-traditional styles, primarily I'm interested in three...

    Just in case....

    So, just in case none of us survive tomorrow, I would like to say goodbye to everyone. I liked most of you to some extent, though I wouldn't really want to meet any of you, I wouldn't mind having a beer at a bar unknowingly with some, and maybe later on think "I wonder if that was TheHelper" or...
