    Your PC without this CPU feature won’t boot Windows 11 24H2 KEY TAKEAWAYS Windows 11 24H2 update requires the POPCNT CPU feature, making it impossible to run on super-old PCs. Modern CPUs support POPCNT, so if you recently bought a new PC, you won't have any issues. PCs older than fifteen years will be affected by this change and won't be able to boot Windows 11 without POPCNT support. Windows 11 24H2 is the next big update that Microsoft will roll out later this year, and it might finally put an end to the practice of running Windows unofficially on...

    In a shocking development, an acclaimed Penn State professor, Themis Matsoukas, who was previously charged with animal cruelty after being caught engaging in bestiality with his pet dog, is now facing additional charges following the revelation of further disturbing acts captured on videos, New York Post reported. The case has now escalated with the emergence of new footage that allegedly shows Matsoukas inserting a tree branch and a lollipop into his anus in a public park. According to reports from Fox 43, authorities discovered 55 videos on Matsoukas’ electronic devices that depicted acts of indecency. These devices were seized under...
  • Gina Carano Says Carl Weathers Called Her After ‘Mandalorian’ Firing: “Didn’t Want Me To Give Up”

    Former Mandalorian vet Gina Carano wrote a warm, lengthy tribute to her fellow Disney+ Star Wars series co-star, Carl Weathers, on Instagram. The actor died today at 76. Carano, who was not welcomed back for a third season of The Mandalorian, or any other Star Wars spinoff, in the wake of making controversial comparisons in February 2021 about a divided U.S. to Nazi Germany, said that Weathers “called me directly after I was fired.” Carano played bounty hunter Cara Dune for two seasons on The Mandalorian, while Weathers portrayed bounty hunter agent-turned later High Magistrate of Nevarro, Greef Karga. Weathers...
  • Best PC Builds for Gaming 2024: From $500 Budgets to $4,000+

    We recommend the best PC builds for every price point. If you want a computer that meets your exact needs and budget, you need to put it together yourself. When you build a gaming PC, you get total control of the parts, choosing the exact make and model of motherboard, a case with the look you like and even the layout of RGB (or non-RGB fans). You could save time by purchasing one of the best pre-built gaming PCs, but you'll give up control and spend more. By constructing your own PC from components, you will likely save hundreds dollars...

  • Weird PC problem: Bluetooth works with Edge, not Brave or Chrome

    Can a computer problem get any weirder? I'm running a fast Dell laptop with Win 11 Pro. If I play audio from YouTube while browsing with Brave (or Chrome), System sounds, test tones from Windows' troubleshooter, etc., play over a bluetooth speaker just fine, but the audio on the YouTube vid plays only over the tiny laptop speakers. (Nothing is connected to the headphone jack.) I've been all through Windows troubleshooting, and even a session with a MS tech support rep, to no avail, other than doing a Shift + Shutdown now results with (after booting back up and returning...
  • Climate activists declare war on ‘gas guzzler’ cars... by vandalising an electric Tesla

    Telegraph via Yahoo ^ | January 7, 2024 | India McTaggart
    Environmental activists who have declared war on “gas guzzler” cars have vandalised an electric-powered vehicle. The controversial group, who call themselves the Tyre Extinguishers, targeted a Tesla car in Clifton, Bristol. The owner was out walking his dog while the group deflated his tyres and left their signature leaflet on the windscreen, which states: “Your gas guzzler kills.” It does not mark the first time the activists have seemingly erroneously deflated the tyres of electric vehicles, with a similar incident on a Tesla in the London area of Notting Hill last year.
  • Take back your pronouns! They're not mine, they're yours!

    When it comes to the topic of sexual harassment the liberal left will shout at the top of their lungs that the only thing that matters is the perception of the person who says the harassment took place. A person's perception is then a valid concept both in fact and in law for the liberal left. Which is why I say that I do not have any "personal pronouns" because pronouns are how other people refer to me based upon their perfectly legitimate perceptions. In general everyone I know refers to me with she/her pronouns. But why? It isn't because...
  • Arizona Military Museum CLOSES after Vietnam vet founder, 80, told tour: 'Eventually they will replace me with some gay, black, woman woke Jew'

    A Vietnam War veteran has been ousted from the military museum he curated for decades Joe Abodeely, 80, spent half his life overseeing the Arizona Military Museum which was a personal passion for the Army veteran who served in the Vietnam War - his own uniform was even on display. But for more than four months, the museum has been closed to the public, and the nonprofit overseeing it no longer has state support. Arizona National Guard Brigadier General John Conley sent Abodeely a letter in February expressing concern about statements the senior made during a tour. 'Eventually they will...
  • A Satanist Pedophile Gang Is Torturing Kids. The FBI Didn’t Seem To Care Unless It Could Blame White Supremacy.

    The Daily Wire ^ | November 16, 2023 | Luke Rosiak
    A Satan-worshipping cult of pedophiles is blackmailing girls into cutting themselves — but the FBI didn’t seem interested in that so much as the fact that one of its members once used the n-word, a Daily Wire investigation found. For years, the group known both as 764 and Harm Nation has tortured what is believed to be hundreds or thousands of girls. But the FBI didn’t put its cybercrimes or violence-against-children investigators on it. Instead, its interest appears to have piqued mainly by the fact that the group — most of whose victims are white teens — was once racist...

    WELLESLEY, Mass — In a letter to parents and students, Wellesley High School said they canceled Friday’s “USA” theme as a part of spirit week to avoid controversy and politicization. Spirit Week at Wellesley High is meant to unify the school ahead of their Thanksgiving football game. Students dress up and match each day’s theme. Some themes this week included Throwback Thursday and Wild West Wednesday. Olivia Spagnuolo is a member of the school’s Student Unification Program. Each year, the group comes up with daily themes. Their ‘USA Day’ theme was quickly shut down.

    I'm a very pessimistic person lately about the general culture war. But it actually seems like there's a change in the air. Could woke be on the verge of collapse? Elon said it happened, but I am getting damn sure we're at least at the beginning of the end. A societal change seems to be happening swiftly. Maybe I'm overblowing it, but I think we may be at a tipping point, on at least the woke thing of canceling someone for 20 year old race jokes or questioning Disney politics.

    George Washington, the Father of our Country, may soon get evicted from the Big Apple. The New York City Cultural Affairs Committee is set to hold a public hearing that could lead to the removal of statues and monuments honoring our nation’s first president, Christopher Columbus and Peter Stuyvesant. Stuyvesant was an early settler of New York City and has a park and prominent high school named in his honor. He was also a slaveholder – and he was white. There are multiple statues and monuments to Washington, including Washington Square Park and the George Washington Bridge. It’s unclear whether...

    So, what is meant by the modern term referred to as 'POLITICAL CORRECTNESS'? The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945. The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added, edited or deleted!

    I'm trying to clone a 240 GB SATA SSD to a 500 GB Crucial M.2 NVME drive, this in a Win 10 Pro Dell 3420 desktop machine; the M.2 drive was physically installed earlier this evening. The Crucial cloning software (actually Acronis) finds the new disk just fine. But, just before I ok the setup and begin the cloning, Acronis advises the new disk will be "MBR", even though most advice is to use GPT with SSD's in Windows 8, 10, and 11. Maybe it's just me being tired (long day working outside in serious heat), but I can't figure...

    Approximately 60 students at a Kansas City high school walked out of classes Wednesday to protest a veteran teacher who had written a op-ed criticizing school diversity policies and allegedly doesn’t use students’ “preferred” pronouns. Caedran Sullivan wrote late last month in The Lion that she could “no longer stay silent” about the Shawnee Mission School District “fostering a toxic environment” with its DEI trainings. “There is repeated white shaming and a preoccupation with white people as the ‘oppressor,’ including staff field trips with a focus on ‘systemic racism,’ Sullivan wrote. “The white saviorism and virtue-signaling at DEI meetings is...

    A New York standup comedian triggered a Dallas audience when she made a joke about transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney for still having “no tits” because “he is a man” — prompting the sensitive audience members to storm out. “Why has it been a year of girlhood and still no ---s? That’s day one, OK?” Chrissie Mayr told the crowd at Hyena’s Comedy Nightclub over the weekend, referencing the gender-affirming top surgery. “If I’m transitioning to a dude, day one I’m getting a ---- — and I’m getting the biggest one you can find.

    Britain’s elite cultural institutions – the BBC, universities, the national trust – are dominated by the woke. Since smart people tend to get ahead in life, you might assume the woke would have higher intelligence. Not so, according to a new study. Louise Drieghe and colleagues surveyed 300 North Americans adults using the platform Mechanical Turk. To measure participants’ cognitive ability, they administered the Ammons Quick Test, which involves correctly assigning words to pictures. Previous studies have shown that people’s scores on the test correlate strongly with their scores on more comprehensive IQ tests, such as the Wechsler Adult Intelligence...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Since the Baltimore Police Department started overhauling its practices through a series of court-ordered reforms in 2017, officers have become significantly less likely to use force against members of the public, such as brandishing a service weapon, deploying a stun gun or striking an uncooperative suspect into compliance. But the agency still needs to improve its ability to hold wayward officers accountable and address a dire staffing shortage, according to testimony Thursday in federal court in Baltimore. With a mix of praise and admonishment, the discussion focused on recent developments in a yearslong effort to enact sweeping...

    It is unbecoming of an adult to speak publicly about Disney theme parks, but I lament the demise of Splash Mountain. The log flume coaster, which featured characters from the controversial 1946 film Song of the South, was one of the most popular features of Disney's American parks, and revitalized a previously quiet corner of Disneyland. Yesterday, on its final day, a massive crowd stood shoulder to shoulder outside the attraction, waiting one last time to descend into its famous briar pit.
