Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

Well, I hate to break it to you, but this world is a pretty sad place, and we only have ourselves to blame for this due to our own carelessness and irresponsibility. My problem is not what security measures are put into place, but the fact that they have to be put into place in the first place. (can...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

I can't think of any reasonable argument for why I would want to trust by default, a set of Root Certificate Authorities, some of whom, like Comodo are clearly ethically dubious, who in turn trust other intermediary CAs and so on ad infinitum, and who are essentially in business to tell me to trust...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

But since you mentioned Facebook: Facebook is a source of garbage, misinformation, cat pictures and your old uncle's stupid jokes. They can deliver it over TLS but it's still a turd. As long as you don't mistake it for a trustworthy news source you'll be fine :) That's an awesome way of putting it!...

Re: your latest purchase

Jacques, what are you trying to say? That my sleeper Octane2 looks SHITE!!! just because it doesn't have the old cube logo skins? :D (You're right, as it should have the correct blue skins) [I will of course have to correct this little problem in due course, when the opportunity presents itself] Jus...

Tezro for sale in Georgia (not mine)

It appears to possibly have 8GB of memory, but no DCD or extra cards, it was also more than likely tested without a keyboard and mouse, as it's displaying "001c01 Gfx Cfg Err":

The board passed diags and I'm keeping it.


Correct me if I'm wrong, it appears as though he actually sent you a newer revision on the module, so it's not all bad :D

Re: your latest purchase

Out of the commercial beers Leffe Brune definitely has to be one of my favourites, I love dark Belgian beers. (I also don't really drink beer that often though)

Ian.


I unfortunately missed that one.

Incidentally, it looks like there is another descent game due for "final" release later this year. "Descent Underground"

Re: Octane in UK

I went from a ZX Spectrum 48K/128K machine to PC, then to the PS1 and then back to PC and have stayed with PC ever since. (For gaming, that is.) I still have my first "real" computer being my 486DX4 100MHz. The first game that I played on this machine was Shadowcaster and I was in heaven a...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

I agree with what you've said. All I expect form Apple is that they have full support for a system like the Mac Pro for at least 5 years. By the time they release the next machine, I will have got 5 years of good service from this one, so I'm happy in this regard. I just hope that the next machine w...
