Tip: How to Get Your Microsoft Band v2 Before Most Everyone Commented on: 28 weeks ago (October 12, 2015)

I just had a text chat with a Microsoft Store rep so I could cancel my pre-order through the MS Store and order through Amazon instead. She assured me that since it's a pre-order I would have my...

Windows Media Center not Quite Dead Yet Commented on: 40 weeks ago (July 24, 2015)

Meh. The impending death of WMC prompted me to move to Kodi/XMBC. The capabilities of Kodi are so much greater that I just really can't even get a little excited thinking about WMC anymore.

It's far easier to issue a single ren *.mp4v *.mp4 from a commandline than it is to attempt the same thing from Explorer.
