Windows This intrigued me. I decided to see what would happen if you plug a Windows Phone 7.5 device - my HTC HD7 in this case - into a Windows 8 machine (the release preview). The answer? Nothing happens. If you combine Microsoft's prime desktop operating system and prime mobile offering, nothing happens. No dialogs, no sync options, no check for updates, no backups, no audio/video transfer, not even a mount or a dialog to download Zune. They've got only a few months to address this.

The avatar and the name are both taken from the villain of the game Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, which was the first FPS, and one of the first games, that I ever played.

Thank you.

Strangely, I'm fairly certain I've never played or even really heard about it... (my best guess is, this or similar head was used as some motif by my local gaming magazine in mid-90s, or TV programme - but almost certainly not a review)

Oh well, I might check it out - for me, the first FPS was Wolf3D IIRC, and Blake Stone seems to be a sort of continuation.
