Re: Win32 API Topic (Raw Windows C++ ftw!)

As a point on the Win7 touch API, my family owns a win 7 gateway touch all-in-one. It has a flavor of Windows 7 that was optimized for touch! You can really see looking back that Microsoft was planning a touch OS like win8 for a while.

Re: Escape from Raptors

The raptors enlist the help of cybermen, which root you out with their nearly invincible system of upgrading. They turn you over to the raptors, which tear you apart and leave the remaing body parts for the cybermen to use in their upgrading.

Re: computer crashes - something to do with graphics card?

Also, try running a diagnostic from your BIOS. BIOS software is proprietary, so I'm not sure where it'd be in your machine, but every BIOS comes with its own diagnostic system, separate from chkdsk. You can diagnose whether it's your Graphics Card through this system.

Be careful and watch driver updates in case it happens again.
