Re: Another Win For Linux

It's not in the Buzz on Linux forums. There are a few comments about possible latency problems. But even though they used open source it doesn't mean it will be geared to Linux. It will more than likely be geared to their Game Console. Most of the games will probably be the shooter type games, the h...

Re: The End is Near

My grandmother, along with a group of about 5 other ladies, all did quilting in her basement. Now they didn't make the quilts face, they only did the quilting part. They could usually get a quilt done in two or three sessions. Most of what they did ended up at the church bazaars for sale, unless the...

Re: What's In An iPhone

I had an early game box, not a popular name, prior to those days I think. You had to turn your TV to Channel 3 for it to work, it had simple games like Pong, Break Out, and a few shooter games to shoot falling items. Not much. Got tired of it real quick, hi hi.

Re: Adaptive Advertising (again)

OK, during the time period I'm talking about, you could buy: From Microsoft the commercial versions of each of their XP OS versions, such as XP Home, XP Pro, XP Pro MCE, etc. From the computer maker an OEM version to reinstall whatever version was on that model computer. Not supposed to be sold, but...

Re: Ski By Fire

I agree on the brands for sure. We used Mobil in all of our cars and trucks for many decades. We must have had over 20 different brands of gas available in our area. Everything from Bob Regals Texas discount to Peabody's Coal Tar gas. Lion Gas was the worst of them all. Anytime you got behind a car ...

Re: Fire and Ice

Way back before computers, the father of one of my classmates in High School, manufactured hand-held games. They were all mechanical of course, but still used batteries and in some cases lights. I must have had almost a dozen of these, given to me by my classmate. Ended up taking a few of them apart...

Re: Adaptive Advertising (again)

Forgot to mention. I used to have a program on my XP machine that told me WHERE every single file was placed on my computer when I installed a new program. Or even used a test version of the program. You would not believe the hundreds of places a program writes to when you take one for a trial run w...

Re: Adaptive Advertising (again)

Well, if I recall, after we deleted the image file, we also ran a program that looked for missing files. In other words, files that program may have needed to run. Or files that are not associated with any other program. Deleting them is sometimes risky, because they are there for games you may load...

Re: What's In An iPhone

Radica is who made the ones I liked best, but some of their latest designs were horrible.
Haven't seen anyone selling them at the local stores. They do have some hand-held games, but not the kind that appeal to adults.

Re: The End is Near

I've made three quilts from start to finish by myself. One of them had numerous 3-D appliques too. Ironic too, I did them while living in a small apartment. My quilting frame was suspended from the ceiling using four pulleys, and two bracer bars with rubber tips to hold it stead between the walls wh...

Re: Fire and Ice

Yes, there is only one image done in vector graphics for each item. And the location we place it is stored by the pixel location, the time we placed it, and in the case of a crop, when it expires and dies, hi hi. If you picture a tic-tac-toe board in your head, the whole tic-tac-toe board is the ima...

Re: Ski By Fire

We had a water filter here, not whole house, that uses a sediment filter, a heavy metals filter, a UV cylinder, and it injects ozone in the line before the water moves through the final compressed carbon filter. We used it about eight years before the cost of the filters got more than I wanted to pa...

Re: The End is Near

It's not on my current XP machine which was a hand-me-down, so I don't remember the name of it. But it was a really great program for converting image files. But now that I think about it, I have a hunch after I got my new hi-res scanner, it could not handle images over a certain size. I'm still bef...

Re: What's In An iPhone

I guess the way of stand-alone hand-held games has almost gone by the wayside since the advent of Schmartz-Fones. I never like trying to play a game on my little Flip-Fone. But the frau has a fairly large touch-screen on hers, so she can play a couple of games on her's while sprinkling the China God...

Re: Happy Birthday WWW

OK, Gotcha on what is happening now. I do know when I get a Source Code it has to be compiled to use on my computer. But by the same token, it seems once I have it compiled I can use it on all of my computers. Maybe not? It could be I've only used it on the AMD computers and not tried it on an Intel...

Re: Adaptive Advertising (again)

The frau got a nasty virus on her computer a few months back, and we figured out exactly where it came from too. It was embedded in an image file she downloaded from a website. Although she uses a virus detection program, apparently they only work if they know the name of the virus as a download. By...

Re: And the Scams Go On

We used Plastic Owls, but they had to have real glass eyes, not painted plastic eyes. In other words, they were not the decorative kind, but the functional kind who's head could move a little in the wind, and they really did look real, even up close. If a plastic owl was 5 bucks, then these function...

Re: Ski By Fire

Yes, it was an excellent move on their part to keep the taste uniform. But then, unfortunately, it does not apply to fountain soda, where they can fiddle with the machines settings, and they only use carbon filters for the water. When I worked at the Drive-In theater when I was around 14 years old. ...
