    One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies.

    No country for old men becomes my reality more and more with each passing year.

    Only that the speed at which society is spiraling down the toilet is outpacing the speed at which I age. I feel more like a stranger in a strange land with each passing year.

    I’m old enough to remember a better time when certain deviant behaviors were recognized and treated as such, and not celebrated as normal, or even admirable as is today’s miserable reality.

    The older I get, the less I feel like I belong in this society... thus no country for old men.

    Reboot to the BIOS and disable power saving mode.

    Since when do they want you to pay for windows 10? Ive been using for a long time now. They never asked for money for it. What if they do i dont want to pay for it? Will my computer be useless? Vone what the hell are you talking about in the last sentence of post #8?
