  1. What do you need to know?
  2. !!! What a surprise! I didn't expect to see my old banners on your profile!

     

    Also hello fellow dragon :D

      Hi lol, I still miss the old banner/ability to choose their colour. I actually didn't have acess to all the old RGB ones, just the blue one, I had to colour shift them, there's some minor issues but I think I got them just about right

      Oh right, also don't forget about the OpenCarnage National Anthem

       

  3. Kids are the worst! Last year I took a trip to Maui, Hawaii. On the way back home, from Maui to SF, I thought it was a good choice to book those economy plus seats; it turned out to be a big mistake. Seated in the seats in front of mine were two kids and their mom, with the dad across the aisle. The whole family, 2 kids and the parents, were all dressed in matching football jersies. I overheard mom on the phone: "The tenants wanted to know what that red stain was on their carpet, tell them it was pink play dough". And then, this very smart woman gave the kids a gigantic ball of pink play dough! Right there! In the plane! So, within 15 minutes, before we even take off, the mother is ripping one of the jersies off one of the kids while screaming at them. The poor kid was started crying. The mom was furious because... The kid smeared the play dough all over themselves. Gee, what a shocker... Dad had totally mentally fucked off as soon as he sat down, completely ignoring the insanity going on only feet away from him. He was in some far away place, staring into the abyss of what life would be like without having crazy monkey kids! Then, throughout the entire flight, it gets worse. She gives the kids all sorts of stuff like juice, and of course it gets dumped all over the place; 80% of the food they're given just winds up on the floor and literally into the air, over the back of the seats, and into my face. I even watched as one of the kids opened the armrest (containing a pull-out a tray) and dump an entire cup of fruit juice inside. Guess what was right below that? My brand new (at the time) tech-backpack, with an iPad and HP laptop inside, among a dozen other juice-sensitive electronics. My boyfriend formulated a theory that the mother stopped paying attention to the kids at key moments, in order to get attention for herself; he presumed that to her, bad attention is better than none at all. We confirmed this theory as we disembarked the plane, which is when mom started excitedly yelling very loud small-talk at a few random flight attendants. I felt so, so bad for the poor flight attendants who had to clean up after those kids. Juice: dumped. Water: dumped. Play dough: everywhere. Assorted foods: piled in mountains on the floor and seats. As I was boarding the connecting flight, a kid was running around me yelling, having a fun time. He then tripped over my bag... and his mom slapped the ever-loving shit out of him! I watched in awe and horror as this poor little happy kid got flung into the air by his ass.
  4. Oh hey, long time no see!

  5. Wow! Thank you!
  6. I took a look at what IPB uses, it is this editor: http://ckeditor.com/ As far as I can tell, it does have these features built-in: So it should just be a matter of enabling them.
  7. I've been meaning to try it for awhile. What's your username/display name?
  8. All they're doing is telling certain receptors in the visual cortex to activate. The way they will do it is by injecting DNA with the necessary code to make them light-sensitive (not the nodes in your eyes, but rather the controlling nerve tissue). If done right, you can make an image or pattern if you shoot light at them. When you push against your eyes, and see patterns/light, you're stimulating your nervous system into activating similarly.
  9. Companies like Lenovo always try to walk the line when it comes to bloat/ad/spyware, looks like Lenovo just crossed it.
  10. Oh wow, I had no idea about that. I always thought there was some sort of abstraction layer that made them semi-interoperable with additional nodes. I mean, they probably exist in special applications, but I didn't know they weren't in public use.
  11. Obviously people take their experiences with them to Mars, and it will be colored to wherever they were born and raised, or were living previously. I think in the long term (definitely not just 4 people, a ton more) culture and religion will definitely play a part. Nationality is only a generic secondary (almost redundant) idea that will only be loosely applied, probably forgotten other than in it's ties to certain other cultural memes. A great read for this is the book Red Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson. In the book, nationality plays a large part but only because corporations from various nations got involved (a possibility, but only muuuuuch later), while Religion and often nationalistic cultural memes follow closely. IE: People from Japan will celebrate various holidays while people from other countries will not.
  12. Is that Second Life?
  13. Hey fellow tech!
  14. Welp, no one is safe now. Great way to avoid this is probably to build RAID arrays out of other storage types.
  15. I think that's an awful lot of speculation just based on media type. You should stick to the basics instead of analyzing industry decisions. - System architecture might change a bit if CD's weren't used, but fundamentally would have stayed the same. Advances in processing power happened independently of the media used. - One of the biggest effects of staying with cartridges is lower NVRAM compared to a CD/DVD. You can cram a lot more data on an optical disk than you can a cartridge (of that time period). A good example of this being used on a legacy system was the Sega CD, which is an optional external disk drive for the cartridge-based Sega Genesis System. - Conversely, sticking with cartridges would give system builders a head start in terms of performance, as the Flash memory industry exploded in the 90's, with faster R/W speeds to boot. Switching to optical media definitely impacted R/W speeds (dem loading times) and in some instances could cause games to stutter (on old systems). - Something to also consider is the reliability of solid-state media. Sure, the cartridge port itself can break, but cartridges were built like tanks. We all know how fragile optical disks are. This might change how end users see the media. That's my thoughts on the matter. Industry choices might branch out from these basic concepts.
