Mixer Rules of Conduct/Description: Introduction My channel is currently 18+ due to Mature rated game streaming: Dead by Daylight; as well as my F-bomb usage when I get excited after putting people on the ground in game, or during one of my many “swing and a miss” moments. This is the only game I have EVER played that actually gets my heart racing. Don’t take it personal. None of it is directed toward any group or individual as I rarely even look at usernames/gamertags. Mic and camera may or may [Continue Reading]

Introduction: My gaming alias has been BlackViperCom (or variant) for a long time (20 years), but I really have not played multiplayer games/First Person Shooters and the like as I, well to put it in easy terms: I am not that good. As such, I have avoided any degree of PvP for many moons. However, with me discovering Dead by Daylight, it has turned me around. I enjoy the game, but the community is absolutely (as some people put it) toxic. GG I have had lots of fun playing killer [Continue Reading]

Introduction To continue my fine tradition of optimizing MS’s latest OS, I have here my findings to date: Black Viper’s Windows 10 Service Configurations.

What is New? – January 17, 2017 It is really tough to explain what has been going on in the last year or so, but I will try to identify the major points as much as possible: California To Missouri or Bust! After an extended session of unemployment, I got a job offer in the Kansas City, MO (KCMO) area and had to move halfway across the country in Mid 2015. This also clashed with the general release of Windows 10 and Microsoft “pushing” everyone to upgrade. Due to money [Continue Reading]

The last few days have been very busy. With the general release of Windows 10, the demand for my Service Configurations increased as well as time put into them, but the VPS could not handle it. The CPU was often over loaded with random MySQL crashes, database corruptions and overall nastiness. One day, I restored the domain twice from previous day backups due to database corruption. I should mention that I have had this VPS for a long time with (very likely) poor edited configurations, failed software installs and general self stupidity. The [Continue Reading]

Introduction I updated the Windows 10 Service Configurations to include Surface 3 and Surface 3 Pro as well as added another recommendation column named “Tweaked”. Here is some helpful information to get you started: The columns can be sorted and individually hidden. Select the column header to sort by that field and/or use the column hiding GUI directly above the table search box. I highly recommend using the column hiding feature to reduce confusion associated with “too much information”. Notes for Surface 3 and Surface 3 Pro users: The Safe and Tweaked configurations assume a [Continue Reading]
