Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I just gave up on Warframe - the Mastery Rank Level 8 test is a parkour thing I cannot seem to pass, no matter what I try. #NotFitEnough2Play

Pokes head out from under comfy rock to see what all the fuss is about.

Blinks. Looks around. Nods to Hamei in appreciation of a fabulous post. Blinks again.

You're way ahead of the curve then... 'the rest of the code' is only a cumbersome vehicle for showing your fancy splash screen.

Re: How do you explain....

I just say - "They're like classic cars in as much they remind us of times when there was a certain romance about motoring". Most people relate to the notion of nostalgia and will nod and reply: "Oh wow, so what's special about these machines then?" - opening the door to endless ...

Re: XP, I made a grave mistake

Assuming you have backups of your data files like drawings, letters and neko piccies :) - i would just fdisk the machine and reinstall. 3 monthly bare metal reinstalls were always "Good Practice' for XP anyway - back in the day.

Re: Have any one seen any good anime lately?

In the last few weeks I've seen - 'Nanatsu No Taizai' or 'The Seven Deadly Sins'. Enjoyable, 7/10. - 'Saint Seiya Omega' to episode 50-ish (end of the first main story arc). Just about watchable, 6/10. - Sword Art Online II, Not as good as the 1st season (8/10) but enjoyable nonetheless, 7/10. - Tok...

Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

Not sure if this is 'extremely' rare, but I'd be chuffed to find a MIPS-based Sony NWS workstation in the UK. There used to be one at my university in Amsterdam many many moons ago. A one-off purchase or 'donation' to the faculty I was studying at. I guess there might be a market for them in Japan, ...

Re: Baikal MIPS

I just read the baikal T1 spec sheet: Dual-core CPU up to 1.2Ghz, USB, SATA and PCIe support. I know next to nothing about hardware, but I think that means it's a slow CPU with modern I/O. Me like. I remember posting something 10 years ago about wanting a 1Ghz O2. Seems like this is the CPU for it. ...

Re: What do you use your Fuel for?

What could I actually use it for? Can I use it as a daily driver? It's the 600mhz model, will it be fast enough for day to day tasks? Well, the obvious answer is another question: What are these day-to-day tasks you speak of? If it's doing admin and horseing around on the command line. Then yes, yo...
