My mom just got a new laptop, and has asked me to "set it up" for her. (For example, removing bloatware and dealing with virus protection.) I was once a Windows power user, but I've been using Macs exclusively for about eight years now. What does setting up a new PC entail in 2017? [more inside]

What was the game I played in the 90s where you skated on hoverboards inside a bowl shaped arena and tried to catch a ball and get it into goals along the rim? Probably on a mac.
A friend passed away last night after a brutal struggle with cancer (which can just f*ck right off, by the way). He was a longtime Austin musician and my Facebook feed is flooded today with memories and photos from his huge network of friends. His family are very dear to me and I'd like to harvest all these good memories for them to look at later. HOPE ME. [more inside]
I'm working with a startup where we all share "inbox duty" on Gmail. What's the ideal way I can access the inbox, respond to email, and have everything still remain on the server? Here's the kicker: I want to use Outlook 2016 as my email client app from my Win10 laptop. [more inside]
My PS4 controller is not working with steam games. I've got it connected, Steam sees it, I can go into Big Picture mode and navigate around & launch games just fine, but when I actually launch a game the controller either only partially works or doesn't work at all. For example in Salt & Sanctuary it does nothing. In MGS Phantom Pain I can launch some menus but not select anything. I tried a different PS4 controller and same issue, thought it might be input mapper interfering so I uninstalled that and rebooted to no avail.
I was hired to translate a foreign language Excel document into English. I am being paid per word, so obviously the faster I work the more I get paid, but... I have little experience with Excel, so in my current state I will be moving slow as molasses. How do I optimize my translation efficiency/speed? Bonus question: How in tarnation do you count words in Excel?! More info available upon request. [more inside]
I have an image file that's half a cross section of a round object. I need to turn this into a 3D object file that can upload to Shapeways for 3D printing. I tried using Tinkercad and a few other online 3D tools, but I can't seem to find one that works. Is there a way I can do this for free?
I'm working on a sheet where I have a summary box explaining the data in the spread sheet. Something like "With 80 guests per day and and average transaction size of $14.32, you can expect 61% margins. Concatenation is not working the way I hoped =/ [more inside]
I am looking for an application that basically allows me to reference external images, place them on a giant canvas and annotate them (draw arrows, make notes etc.). The trick here being that when the external images update they should also update my "map". I know this is possible in Indesign and Illustrator, but I am looking for alternatives.
I want to write a very simple app for a smartwatch-type device that will display the time as a color. What's the easiest way to do this? [more inside]
How do I ensure my computing device will connect to a particular projector when I won't be able to test it until day of? [more inside]
I am not sure how to ask this, so it is probably easily available on Google and I just can't find it. However, I am trying to make a Google Sheet (or Excel Doc, it doesn't matter which) that does something specific. [more inside]
Hello, hoping someone here can help me when both Google support and my hosting provider have given up. I'm working with two domains - we'll call them mycompany.com and client.com, both use G Suite for email, both at the same hosting provider. One email (mine) on mycompany.com (my work domain) is getting this bounce back message: 550 5.7.1 relaying denied when emailing any address at client.com. My colleagues, also emailing from mycompany.com, don't have a problem. [more inside]
I want/need a new mouse for my iMac of roughly 2014/2015 vintage. It came with a battery-powered mouse...can I swap it for something rechargeable or plugged in? [more inside]
Is there an application that will check the version of all applications running on my computer (windows10) and give me a list of those that are out of date? I asked the same question (except for the windows 10 detail) about 8 years ago and was told about filehippo which I used until recently. However, it does not look like filehippo is being maintained ( the latest version is about 2 years old and the name indicates that it's a "Beta" version ) so I'm looking for an alternative. Thanks.
A script keeps bouncing me out (and only me!) of certain pages on a website but doesn't appear to be anything to do with the script itself. As far as I can tell the request isn't getting to the script so I'd like to figure out where its going. It has the same issue on the live server as on my local XAMPP install. [more inside]
