welcome back Edgar, nice to see you again
have you tried coding on win10 yet?
I have found compability issues with my old 32bit masm code on my win8.2
I read that my current dualcore 64bit cpu has a builtin random generator opcode
that I wish to try out in perlin noise code
I dislike newer windows to be hybrid between old windows and Android os or apps
if I wanted that system I would go Android tablet
on the other hand I have no choice to run 64bit modern computer with memoryhungry cg programs like poser etc

"Disabling the built-in antivirus seems to make 10 runs faster. "
sounds like definition of worst kinda virus stealing system Resources like that :P

Thanks,

I haven't coded in quite a while in assembler. Since coding is coding, straight forward assembler programs will still run on 10, I haven't look through my old stuff yet having just moved it onto the new PC but I plan to start soon.

Good to see you Dave, I think the only guy I've talked to regularly from the forum for the last while is Bill Cravener, missed you guys.

Yet another irritation from Microsoft trying to force Win10 on Win7 users. After last nights auto update, when I started it this morning the "Get Win10" taskbar icon pops up and empty white window with no controls to turn it off. Have to go to the task manager to get rid of it. The grind is I don't want Win10 on this machine, I payed for a retail version of Win7 64 Ultimate for a reason and don't want a half debugged mess to over write it.

If you don't want to upgrade to Windows 10 just uninstall update KB3035583 and select hide update, you'll never be asked again and the icon on the taskbar will disappear. That's what I did on my Win7x64 ultimate virtual machine and it works fine with no side effects.

Hey Magnum, thanks.

Here's a pic of my new PC

Coffee is Tim Horton's double double brewed at home.

Logitech Z-5500 5.1 THX/DTS digital surround sound.

Internet connection was upgraded as well

Donkey,

I once lived in Calgary, don't remember the address, but it was near 36th ave and 9th st. Just above the very steep Christchurch Hill, a mile or so from the Elbow River. Stayed at Rideau Park hotel (as I remember) while looking for a house. I loved Calgary, the cold didn't bother me, got up to Banff as often as possible, I was a lousy skier. One thing that struck me, there were more motorcycles there than anywhere, surprising due to the long winter; but once acclimated I drove throughout the winter. Wore 2 ski masks with the face turned to the back (pull apart the threads to see thru), was warm as toast.  The Chinook was a taste of paradise. I imagine it's expanded since then (40+ years or so), and I wouldn't recognize it. Is there still a large Mormon community there? Just last week I said "eh" in a conversation and my interlocutor knew I'd lived in Canada.

Them were the days ... :biggrin: (need a smiley expressing "bittersweet")
I am NaN ;)

Hey rrr314159,

Yeah, I know the area. It's not too far from me in Dover. I like Calgary, the population is just over a million now so it's probably a bit different from when you were here last. Yes, the Chinooks are great, a 20 degree rise in temperature overnight is always welcome when its cold outside.

BTW, I keep seeing your I am NaN and thinking you're NaN from the old forum, just got it, it's from The Prisoner, hence the avatar. Not sure about pi though. NaN was an awesome MASM coder.

Hi Edgar,

Impressive hardware, especially the memory capacity. You can install a Ram disk to use a portion of the memory like a hard disc.

I only ordered it with 32GB of ram (base configuration is 8GB) because it's an all in one PC and I didn't look forward to the job of upgrading it later. I should have ordered the i7 and SSD but I couldn't justify the extra cost involved. The ram drive is a good idea but for now I'm not lacking in speed so there's little need. I do have a 32 GB SD card as a ReadyBoost drive even though the SSHD drive is already caching the frequently used files in solid state memory. Not completely convinced at this point whether there is a real advantage to a ram drive yet.

Searching the old forum for posts containing mov written by user NaN yields only one post ::)
