Great tips on to fix and tweak Windows 10 file search to be a bit faster and why its so slow.
It gets better lol;
NEW YORK (AP) — Madonna, Rihanna, Beyonce and Jay Z are among the A-List musicians who are co-owners of Tidal, a streaming service being billed as the first artist-owned platform for music and video.
The membership-based service — similar to subscription service Spotify — will provide music and video content that users can stream on computers, tablets and smartphones or listen to offline. It is being offered at two price points: $10 for standard sound quality and $20 for “lossless high fidelity sound quality.”
Few other details were released about the streaming service.
Kanye West, Daft Punk, Alicia Keys, Jack White and Nicki Minaj also were among the artists who announced at a New York City event Monday that they are co-owners of the service that quietly launched in October. Keys said the artists hope Tidal will “forever change the course of music history” and ensure the viability of the industry.
The celebrities — who also included Jason Aldean, Usher, members of Arcade Fire and deadmau5 — stood in a line onstage as Keys spoke to the audience at Skylight at Moynihan Station in Manhattan. Most of them wore black as a sign of solidarity. Keys called the event “a graduation.”

Daft Punk guess they sold out?
Ive been playing the new expansion since the release date and i cant shake the feeling that this expansion is World of Warcrafts worst one yet. For all Blizzard have done in the new expansion it seems they have finally run out of ideas.
- New Level cap at 85
- Two new Races: Worgen and Goblin
- 5 New Quest Zones
- One new Proffession: Archelogy
- New Dungeons and Raids
- Guild Leveling System (Which seems to favour large guilds)
- The old Wow World is totaly changed
- You can now fly around Azeroth! (Took Blizzard almost 4 years to finally add)
- 1000’s of new quests
- Improved Graphics, water is now shiny and finnaly textures get an overhaul.
In fact to be bloody honest its the same thing as the last two expansions except its more colourful and with bigger numbers!
“Bigger Numbers” i hear you ask, i mean Players Health and attacks are simply bigger numbers. Theres still the same game mechanics as always;
- level up, Quest or do Dungeons
- Hit the max level (85) and wonder what the hell to do now?
- Repeat Dungeons over and over to gear up and gain reputation with various factions.
- See nothing much has changed, this has been done to death in the last expansion.
Reasons the Expansion has left me Dissapointed:
Is a great idea basically you get “Perks” that can boost the XP you get or the “Reputation gains” you get from doing quests or dungeons. But it seems to favour large guilds, small social guilds will take much longer to gain those perks and while there not a necessity they are nice to have.
Same oul shit:
Theres still the same thing when you hit the level cap, the problem of gearing up to do dungeons. Running instances is fun but theres a point where you simply “burn out” and say enough is enough and simply cant be bothered anymore. This happened in WOTLK, Heroic Dungeons were a bit of a joke compared to how Blizzard made heroic dungeons in the first expansion “The Burning Crusade”. As far as i know at least from what ive read Heroic Dungeons this time around are very tough. But at the end of the day its still the same thing over and over again no matter how Blizzard try to dress it up.
Two new Races:
I mean who the hell cares about this, this is great for new players to the game but not for someone who is fed up of leveling a few alts. Ive quite a few alts and i certainly dont want to go from level 1 to 85 just to have my characters race different. So what has happened is most players have simply payed real money to change their characters race, making Blizzard more money as if they needed any more.
Quests: No Voice Acting in majority of quests:
At lot of the quests have no voice over acting making them dull, boring and simply a click “Accept Quest” and read later monotomy. You would think blizzard could have added a bit more voice acting to the game for some quests, not all quests just to make things a bit more interesting. A minor gripe but still something they could have done better. They did add cut-scenes to some quests which was a nice touch.
Most of the 5 new Quest Zones are Dull:
I hate to admit this but they really are dull, the only zone that strikes you as “wow” is the underwater zone.
Amazing zone completly underwater with a ridable seahorse.
Same old typical graphics in here nothing new to see.
Totaly different to any zone in the game which is a good thing but not amazing by any standards.
Nothing new here.
I got an email this morning before i headed to college saying that wow account password had been changed, well guess what i didnt change it in fact i havnt played since early septemeber and my account is inactive. I merged my account with battle.net months ago and it worked fine when i logged in.
When i did try to login today i tried evey password combination i can remember and no luck. I tried to reset my password and it wont let me so it seems my account is either hacked or its something else.

The email looks real with the email headers looking correct. Unfortunetly the information you need to fill out to even get help with this from Blizzard support is insane, you need the original game CD key and all sorts off other stuff which i didnt have time to get this morning.

Edit Update 13-nov-09:
I still dont know how i was hacked as ive all windows updates, Anti virus and a firewall. Avast said my Windows installation was clean, so did Spybot Search and Destroy. Howeve Lavasofts Adaware came up with a load of different viruses but didnt tell where they were. So in order to be sure i changed passwords to all my email accounts.
Ever since i was aware that Wow accounts would be hacked and cleaned out like this ive been very aware of my wow password and had Anti-Virus and firewall software installed. Bu i never thought this would matter if your wernt playing anymore. Since my account was inactive i dont know how it was hacked and im stilll waiting on Blizzard to contact me. I cant get even get though to them by using there UK number when they have an office in ireland in cork, so thats bloody great.
Edit: 20 – Nov Source of Virus Found – my College
Im after putting in the memory stick that i use for college in the DKIT and my new Anti Virus ESET Security (AVAST didnt even detect it) has picked up the virus on it something called;
“N:\9g86.exe – Win32/PSW.OnLineGames.NNU trojan”
So its clear even from the name that this is the nasty bastard virus that let somebody hack my account, whats even worse is that weeks ago at college the Anti-virus up there reported that some file on the memory stick had a virus but it didnt remove it and i thought nothing of it. Window then must have run the file when i put the Memory stick in. Ill never use Avast Anti-virus again even though ive used it for 5 years.
