How is it flamebait?

All of the above happens. Are you ok with that? Do you think it can't happen to you?
The other night I heard tapping on my window. I couldn't see out there even with the flood light on Scared the hell out of me. (my biggest nightmare is seeing a face outside a window!

I heard it again. I'm thinking should I call someone? The cops? My friend? I live in the sticks so it would take forever for anyone to get here. I had a shotgun at one time but my ex has it now. (and his stupid brother stole it damn it)

Then I saw: It was my cat scratching his chin and making a rat-tat-tat sound, just like a person would.
What would you have done? It wasn't clear what it was and too many people would have shot first without seeing what they were shooting at.
I had my friends two dogs here, one of them a large pitbull hound mix, my pitbull, and two other medium size dogs. I lock my doors and windows even out here. I have good neighbors, and people around here know I have dogs, and a rather large male friend of mine randomly drops by.

I'd like my shotgun back, but I know it's not damn toy, to handle it only when needed, and it's always, always, always treated as if it's loaded.

If you get that mad over some valid points the OP brings up, and you have firearms? Hmm.

<s>Free</s>Window 7 downloads?

I have Windows 8, and hate it. I'm not a hacker (I wish I had the know how though) but I'm also not a newbie Luddite who hates change.
So: 1) I don't want to buy it.
2) I don't know if I can find Win 7 users. ***
3) Do you know of safe sites to download it?
4)Should I install Win 7 drivers before downloading 7?
What do the experts here recommend?

*** I may start poking around and asking. There must be someone I know who has it.

Thank you all for the information!

Touchpad settings: what do they mean?

Here is what I have:
A Toshiba Satellite 870.
Windows 8 (UGH)
Synaptic ClickPad V1-5
What do the various settings do, and where can I find out this out?
For example the wheel settings: the number of lines at a time for scrolling vertical and horizontal.
What does that even mean?

Any links that explain what the functions are?

Also, my touchpad randomly disables on its own. I've reinstalled the driver, and I then have to enable it in the device settings.
F-5 does not work when this happens.

Thanks in advance
