Hey Mods, Devs, whoever. I am signed in and getting ads. I have cleared the cache and rebooted.


Still getting ads.  And, oddly, I can't log off WC.

For those who love Atomic Alarm Clock and think it doesn't work on Windows 10, I was with you, but I stumbled across a setting in Windows that allows it to work!!!!!!


Disabling the Action Center in Windows 10 will allow it to work!!!


I guess you guys already knew, but I just discovered it!

Hey guys. Just sitting here, thinking about you all, my time here, and getting old.

I have been in a lot of pain the last few years, working harder than I did before I "retired". A few health problems.

I miss the everyday goings on here at WC. Seems like there are soooooo many new names (a good thing), yet soooo many of the old timers are gone. ( A bad thing ) Shame... I know a lot of them are alive, just lost interest, lurking, maybe.

I have a very long list of who I miss. 

( Boxxi, you are number one in DX, sorry I'm not gonna get to take you )

I have several skins unreleased due to the original artist fading away. Good skins, it sucks.

Original skins? I have many, and I have 3 unfinished windowblinds just waiting. The urge is gone.

I test a bit for several skinners here. Gives me something to do, I guess....feel a bit useful.

Looking at stats I see I'm still in the top 3 in top skinners for the last 3 months, yet I haven't skinned in a while. (Dunno how that happened)

I wonder if anyone is still interested in anything other than dreams and windowblinds…..


I miss DesktopX badly. But if no one can get it anymore, kinda takes the wind outta your sails.

I have Master status. Why? Who knows? Truly, I never considered myself a master. I just liked doing the "art".  But I feel like I lost a bunch of family sometimes.  (My best friend Wiz stands out most, but we have lost many others.)


Ahh, getting old sucks.


I want to end this by saying that I appreciate all the support over the years. This is a good place to be, here at WC.  I hope many more skinners, enthusiasts, gamers, etc. decide to become members of our clan. I may not be as visible as I used to be, maybe I'm more of a lurker, but I'm still here. I hope some of you still care if I am. Most of you don't even know me.  Sometimes, I miss being PuterDudeJim.  RedneckDude is ok, but his stats show him being a tad "newer" that the actual truth. Oldies know... 


Good friends, good fun, good memories.

I can't believe I need to ask this, but how do I view my WC subscription status?

I have had to reinstall Windows on several PCs in the last few days.  I can't activate Multi KVM Pro.


I have 2 serials and both seem to be used on another machine, which they are not.


Please reset my activations for both serials.

I have (supposedly) 2 pages of threads I have subscribed to, totaling 53. I see 6 on page one, and page 2 says I haven't subscribed to any posts.  Internet Explorer and Chrome exhibit the same issue.

At home, getting over it.

Let's all send some love Steve's way. Good thoughts and prayers, please. He sent me an email about his condition.


Quoting Giz:

Hey Jimbo!


Just got home a few days ago from open heart surgery for a valve replacement after a heart attack. Did anyone get the license number of the truck that hit me? Just thinking about moving is painful.


I went in for what I thought was heartburn...then they sent me home...then 2 days later I was back in. They said my one valve was 50% calcified and running slow and needed a replacement. I chose cow! lol Anyway....I just feel like a truck hit me still. And on top of that they caused something fucked up in my left occlusion of sorts they said...I have to go see them soon about that now. When I hold my hand under warm water it feels like it's scalding. In the hospital the first and second fingers on my hand started turning blue....and I have no idea numb could be so painful. And a muscles or tendon on the forefinger now has some sort of lock on it. I can open and close it...but it's as though there is a spring on snaps open and snaps closed.


I was just getting over the pain from the pacemaker...and was really getting ready to skins something...then needless to say I won't be doing any skinning any time soon, Say hi to everyone on WC!
