  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcpoA0CWgt4 Laughed my ass off at the end of this video. I can just imagine some kid playing the game, finishing the level, and letting it sit at the completion screen sans pressing the start button to continue, only to well... I won't spoil it.
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t5brAyCVSw Yes, it will run Thief with hardware acceleration. I had to find out. But emulating a Pentium ii/K6-2 is at the very limit of what this program can do, at least on a I7 10700k. The question is, why is emulating an X86 CPU so much slower when compared to something like a Wii emulator? Not to knock the skills of the lady who made this PC emulator, it is very nice. This is actually the first one I've seen that emulates a 3dfx card, all on your CPU. For years we've wanted to see an emulator that can run Windows 95/98, and someone
  3. E3M5... seriously a great piece of music. Melodic, catchy as hell, can listen to it over and over again and not get tired of it. E1M8 is also quite nice, though a completely different style than E3M5. In general though, Phase 2 of this project has better music.
  4. https://www.webroot.com/blog/2011/09/13/mebromi-the-first-bios-rootkit-in-the-wild/ As someone whose scared of these, this is a fairly impressive bit of engineering. But the restrictive space that a BIOS image provides fortunately limits what an attacker can do, especially if the machine still has to appear to work and be fine in order to avoid raising suspicion of the end user, e.g. it would be hard to fit code in the BIOS to attack Windows and Linux, plus whatever file system you happen to be using. Of course they are going to go for the low-hanging fruit that is Ntfs and Windows
  5. I wish you could mount the PSU in the front of this case, thereby allowing for a higher CPU cooler.
  6. I'm used to elected officials constantly selling me out, but inciting an insurrection is a new low! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpym-vAH8OQ Come to think of it, asking other officials to "find me 12,000 votes" is pretty bad too. What amuses me the most is that if he had accepted the loss like a man instead of like a 9-year-old, he could have ran in the next election in 2024, and probably have won.
  7. I want to love this case, but only accommodating a single 3.5HDD is where they seriously dropped the ball. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmH8o3rXpTA
  8. https://www.howtogeek.com/186954/bypass-quora-login-and-see-all-answers/ This is an example of how the Internet as it exists today "sucks my spider-balls". (for those who don't get that, it's an Angry Video Game Nerd reference) Maybe I want to read some information on a sensitive subject without logging in with digital Stalker numero uno, a.k.a Google, or their right-hand man, a.k.a Fecesbook keeping a log of everything that I have ever researched online. Btw who gave these bastards (Google and Facebook) permission to integrate themselves into literally every website on the planet? M
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A7pQN5W08E I love how he just plugs this thing in, and shortly thereafter, up comes the desktop, ready to work. No sitting there for ten minutes waiting for it to configure things, no wading through ten pages of license terms and unchecking invasive privacy settings. Why can't Windows on a thousand dollar computer work like that? I'm thinking that they have managed to transform the Raspberry Pi into a perfect computer for grandparents with this new model that is on display here. Antivirus software and malware (is there a difference betwe
  10. Wonderful music in this game, but apparently people hated it (the game). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHi7JyG5t4s I can just sit and listen to it over and over again, and that's how game music is supposed to work.
  11. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfYsDQqzhk8 Especially at 7:05... Daaaamn that's amazing.
  12. This game actually looks pretty good. Watching it, you think it's just a simple platform game, like most games were back then. But it's more complicated, (and more thought and effort were put into it) than that!
  13. The biggest issue I see with this, is programming AI that behaves convincingly like a thief. Having the computer be the guards isn't too complicated, just patrol and look for intruders or stuff that's amiss (open doors, stolen things), but programming an AI that sneaks around and avoids you is probably a lot tougher to do.
  14. https://betanews.com/2020/10/06/disable-bing-windows-10-start-menu/ Much like with any self-respecting rapist, these big corporations do not take "NO" for an answer. You WILL have Bing integrated into your start menu. We WILL collect any text strings you type in there. If you take steps to stop this behavior, then we will change the way the system works internally via updates so that your registry tweaks (which only exist to placate our large business customers) no longer disable said functionality.
  15. Ding ding ding, we have a winner! The major players in the video game industry hope and dream every day about transforming gaming into a subscription service like cable TV. Instead of paying just once for a game and then playing it and or modifying it (aka enjoying it) for literally decades like we do with Classic Doom, you will have to pay a constantly increasing amount every month to continue to use the service and play any games at all. This is why, although Microsoft has open sourced some stuff, like old Windows programs that no one cares about anymore (e.g. a calculator or fi
