    Can video games change people’s minds about the climate crisis?

    A few well known games are mentioned. Horizon Forbidden West, Death Stranding A new wave of game makers are attempting to influence a generation of environmentally conscious players. Will it work, and is it enough? "Radical ideas are needed if the games industry is to collectively decarbonise...

    The 'What are you watching' Thread

    Haven't read it or watched the movie. But I can suggest an old Sci-Fi by Robert Silverburg, The Man in the Maze. If you can find it - it's from 1968.

    Global Catastrophic Cyber Event Coming

    Yes, it's amazing how many people are not ready for any basic emergency, let alone when there are alerts for several days. After watching the whole video, I was impressed with Edi Rama, Prime Minister of Albania awareness and knowledge compared to our own leaders, as well as the US. I started...

    Global Catastrophic Cyber Event Coming

    WEF = World Economic Forum When I see things like this, I wonder what they aren't telling us. Especially with all the breaches, like LastPass, etc. “The most striking finding that we’ve found,” WEF managing director Jeremy Jurgens said during a presentation highlighting the WEF Global...

    Time to dump Google TV

    Can't remember the date (20 years or so?) but when the US switched over to digital, I took my OTA TV to our recycling center. Good riddance, goodbye to advertising. I did inherit my mom's TV when she died a few years ago, but it's in storage as backup monitor. I had used it as a monitor for my...

    The Reznavi Vengeance - Tactical SUVs

    Just when you think you've seen it all, someone comes along and raises the bar... a lot. US is getting closer & closer to Mad Max road warrior vehicles. "Vengeance (priced from $285,000, rising to $499,000 with all the extras)." Just the thing for the Proud Boys and Freedom Convoy types... 😨...

    Gallery - AI designed PC cases

    "Our sample gallery of the AI-generated Mini ITX PCs embedded above features quite a few designs that are rather rotund. This isn't a bias of the AI; instead, Hybective admits he has a fondness for Wheatley (the AI robot from the Portal franchise) and has wanted a spherical PC ever since casting...

    The "What book are you reading" Thread

    It would be rare for me to read a book just because Bill Gates recommended it. But his synopsis (on the cover) is accurate. However, it stretches from very early history well into modern times. Very readable. Looking forward to the author's other books. Learned a lot, but could easily debate...

    Not exactly pictures, but some humorous sayings I came across that I recreated in a larger size. No idea who created them.

    Rants etc.....

    It depends on how the carrier/shipper are networked. In this case, probably when they prepare the shipment and waybill (tracking number), it's scanned into the system, even though the package(s) still are in the shipping area. Until the driver/carrier scans it, either on pickup or when it is...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Not enough need for a new system presently. A recent video card upgrade & new monitor has been great for what I use/need. Neither of my two Win10 pcs can be upgraded to 11. Been following Win11 and not sure I want to or even need it. I can do all I need with Win 10 - hell, probably could do...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Kind of lucky I guess. My first computer was an 8 bit Atari with a 320 baud modem in the mid 80s. Both brothers had computers and we played games via dial-up (Empire Deluxe, Perfect General) Plus where I worked at the time had a mainframe with terminals you could use after hours. Eventually as...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Good point with the gentlemen. 👍 I'm in the upper echelons of the group being in my mid 70s. If I had a newer pc and a fibre connection, I'd probably be considering online multiplayer again. But I'm quite comfortable with what I currently have and do in gaming and computing; which makes it more...

    The HWC what you listening to Thread

    There's actually 3 versions of this now. The original audio only was on vinyl (and now on CD) produced in 1978: Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds. Full orchestra. In 2018 it was the UK's 32nd best selling studio album of all time. Jeff Wayne later produced a live...

    unofficial let's talk about cooking tools thead

    I always rinse rice and let it drain before cooking. Since I only use small amounts at a time, it doesn't take much rinsing to run clear. For barley, I check it dry before hand, rinse, then soak and rinse again.
