    Your favorite Old School OS

    2K was the first version of Windows I used that didn’t crash. I’ll always have a spot in my heart for 2K. 98SE is a close second but it still had problems from time to time and did crash.

    Cutting the Cable Cord? Savings Aren't What They Were

    $120 for DirecTV $45 for Sling + Hulu + Netflix Nah, no savings here. :rolleyes: This is another pay TV shill article written by an idiot who thinks cutting the cord = you have to buy EVERY SERVICE YOU CAN. Sure, if you do, you're not saving money. Who the fuck does that? Secondly, cutting the...

    Why I Deleted My Steam Account

    Cool, maybe the next Steam sale, the Steam store won't go down because one less wet blanket won't be trying to load it and suck up all the bandwidth.

    Nintendo Is Bringing Back the NES Classic in 2018

    Mario Kart 64, Diddy Kong Racing, and Wave Race 64 all run fine and control good with a 360 pad. Mario 64 has some graphical oddities every once in awhile but generally works and controls fine as well. Can't say I've tried many more than that. I know there are wiki pages out there with the best...

    Fresh install, no apps, Win7 boots on my SSD's to usable desktop in about 10 seconds; that's with everything in the background loaded. SATA6 interface. Yes, Ubuntu MATE boots a few seconds faster than that to usable desktop. IME Win7 is fast when it gives the impression that it's booted to...

    Nintendo Is Bringing Back the NES Classic in 2018

    Absolutely not, at MSRP. > MSRP for what they were going for (2 and 3x the price), it's absolutely a bad value. I was going to buy one on launch, for MSRP. That failed. The options then are 1) pay scalpers or 2) go elsewhere. I went with option 2. I'll say it here and now, there's no way on...

    Eh, partially true. 7 boots to usable desktop because everything fires up during the Windows boot process. 10 boots to desktop and pretends it's usable THEN starts loading everything else. It's a fake. If you don't group taskbar notification icons, you see this clear as day. One of the things...

    Nintendo Is Bringing Back the NES Classic in 2018

    Exactly. There's also a niche for people who want those devices but aren't going to spend an arm and a leg for them. FFS you can buy an actual NES and most of the games for less than the cost of a Classic when those were the hot item. Or, there's the Pi. Has nothing to do with "cool kids on the...

    Nintendo Is Bringing Back the NES Classic in 2018

    Oh! Found the salty one! :whistle: Congratulations on being "that guy". Way to make assumptions. No one said anything about stealing. I recommend you look up the legitimacy of roms and why and in what capacities they're not illegal.

    Nintendo Is Bringing Back the NES Classic in 2018

    I think most people who wanted an NES Classic bought a Retro Pie instead; at least, judging from what I've seen online, that was one of the most-common thoughts I've seen passed around. If you want, you can buy a Raspberry Pi case that looks like an NES, and on top of that, the controller cords...

    Nintendo Is Bringing Back the NES Classic in 2018

    Actually I'm grateful, because it caused me to go out and build a Retro Pie instead for the same price as the MSRP, and now I get to laugh at all the people trying to find an SNES Classic, and eventually, the N64 Classic. Meanwhile I get all of those games and systems, and a whole lot more, and...

    Nintendo Is Bringing Back the NES Classic in 2018

    Surely to coincide with the launch of the N64 Classic, which will have a mass quantity of 10 made and will therefore be impossible to buy at or near MSRP. Seriously, just fuck off Nintendo.

    Windows 10 User Base on Steam Stagnates as Windows 7 Rises

    Most of the non-MS branded Windows store DX12 games have been brought over to Steam and DX11 with little fanfare. (Quantum Break, for instance.) So yes you're correct, but, it's obviously not a hard line when a dev can skate around it after the exclusivity (I assume) is over. A lot of my Steam...

    Oracle Has Laid Off All Solaris Tech Staff

    Seems like Oracle ruins everything they touch. They've basically killed OOo at this point too, after giving it (?) to Apache, who reportedly is going to quit releasing updates. Everyone's moved to LibreOffice. Then there's MySQL which people are leaving for MariaDB. The only other Oracle...

    Capcom Is Re-Releasing Street Fighter II on SNES Cartridges

    I remember paying $80 for the original SNES release at Babbages. They had a few games that were $80... FFII (FFIV) and FFIII (FFVI) were two others I remember paying that much for.

    ow can I enforce configurations and "group policies" on my home LAN?

    You can copy the local gpedit.msc files to the other systems and incorporate the settings, though it's a bit more involved than simply export & import. You basically have to copy and paste everything manually where it goes - I don't remember off the top of my head where that is, though. I would...

    Fair enough. I know there are other DE's but I'm not as big a distro hopper as some, so whether they're the built-in DE for distros or not, I honestly don't know. I know what the "main" DE's are though, and from a usability/support standpoint, that's why I mentioned LXDE, XFCE, and MATE.

    Windows 10 User Base on Steam Stagnates as Windows 7 Rises

    QFT. We have no plan in place to upgrade every PC in our domain from 7 to 10, and no desire to do so either. If and when it happens, it'll fall on someone else's shoulders in 2020. If that was tomorrow, we'd upgrade everything to 8.1 with Classic Shell and wait another 2 years to see where the...

    What mainstream DE in an official distro is leaner than LXDE? There may be some that are leaner but none that I know of are an official DE of a mainstream release. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Suggest OS for low end rig

    Lubuntu is the leanest Linux distro you're going to find, because LXDE is the leanest desktop environment available. Xubuntu is slightly more bloated than that, with XFCE. Ubuntu MATE is the most bloated of the lean DE's, and what I'd personally recommend. It's not the leanest, but it is the...

    Cheaper Techsmith Camtasia Studio and Snagit

    You should be able to use OBS to do screen recording (ignoring the streaming functionality); if you have an NVIDIA graphics card (and the GeForce Experience app), you can use that to capture the desktop as well. Greenshot and ShareX are both freeware alternatives to SnagIt.

    The Top 5 Best Motherboards of All Time

    You claim the SR-2 was "reliable", but many SR-2's had issues with the RAM slots and RAM dimms disappearing on boot and reappearing after a reboot. (Quite a few of us [H]orde folders had this happen.) Otherwise it was a great board once you found and modded a case large enough to fit one. :) (I...

    Nintendo to Launch SNES Mini This Year

    Everyone buy 5, if you ever see them in stock, because they need the revenue to make the N64 Mini 12 months later after these are also impossible to find. (No Goldeneye007 though due to MGM and RARE copyrights.) Oh, Nintendo! Bunch of fucking wankers.

    New Processors Are Now Blocked from Receiving Updates on Old Windows

    Won't do you any good. The updates now are all cumulative, including security-only. This patch was added even to that, not just the security and quality rollup. Going forward, if there's any doubt whether your CPU may get flagged incorrectly, you can't update. Even worse, again, the update, once...

    New Processors Are Now Blocked from Receiving Updates on Old Windows

    The fact of the matter and the topic is, the security only updates now check CPU architecture, and some CPUs which should be immune are being flagged and systems are now essentially dead for people. On top of that, the update cannot be removed once installed. That's an even bigger dick move...

    Exactly, and those are also cumulative. From here on out, regardless of what update mechanism you use, you're probably fucked. And even if you're not "officially", as in you're running a compatible CPU, who's to say they won't start flagging more of those. They've already done it, and they've...
