Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

in Milliways
And having a screen this big with touch instead of buying a bulky WACOM tablet to carry with my MBP? I'd rather get the touch screen. Precision may not be good enough, but it's a complaint I leave for the artists. UI/UX designs don't need that high level of precision which translates later to code. …

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

On a desktop/laptop it's not supposed to replace the keyboard and mouse but to complement it... same as the mouse was never supposed to replace the keyboard (and I guess if you search you will find the same comment about mice back then). Probably people are finding new ways to make use of devices …

Re: nearly got ran over by a young dude on a moped...

^ Yeah man. See, OP, the Indignation and Offense Police have spoken, and at considerable length I might add. We hope you feel duly chastised, and are prepared to assume the requisite position of and ferociously virtue-signal in repentance of that unspeakable insult.

Re: What font did PC Magazine use?

in Milliways
I would try Adobe Indesign program. First you might want to try reading the questions you're replying to. @kingcake: those look like Helvetica Condensed Black (title) and Times New Roman (paragraph). The printing or the scan makes them a little bit "heavier"/bolder than the typical result on a …

Re: Your oldest favorite computer game?

in Milliways
The earliest game I really "got into" and played over and over was Cosmic Crusaders (1982, although I probably encountered it '87-ish). Most because it was the first one on our family PC (XT clone) which actually *felt* like a real arcade game and did everything right - a lot of early IBM PC stuff …

Re: Big A** Monitors thread

in Milliways
Yes, AFAIK the longevity issue isn't a solved problem yet. Personally I'm wary of using TVs as computer monitors, mostly because the internal setup options are limited, and not geared towards precision. E.g. scaling/aspect choices, annoyances that often can't be disabled (permanent underscan, …

Re: What retro activity did you get up to today?

in Milliways
math and science don't care about your "feelings" or your "beliefs". If only. Try telling that to those who now measure the number of genders in astrophysical units, or to those who found works like The Bell Curve "offensive", and see how quick you get something far worse than a cactus up your …

Re: Archive.org lawsuit

in Milliways
Maybe, but typically you wouldn't be able to find it unless you were already aware of the original URL before the host nuked it. And in any case, I believe the domain owner can still make a request to archive.org to remove the snapshots. Although I don't know what the IA's policies are in cases that …

Re: Archive.org lawsuit

I'm surprised Wayback Machine has lasted as long as it has. There's a lot of stuff behind paywalls which can be read on the WM because it was free some time in the past. I won't say this hasn't been useful to me, but the legal problems are obvious. I was under the impression that they take down …

Re: GW-BASIC source code released

Your first link is kaput. Copy-pasting when crossposting links never ends well... thanks, edited. Welp, time for that GW-BASIC libretro core to happen! Bring on the .BAS filled playlists!! Dunno about that, I'm just getting my cringe ready for the obligatory HTML5+JS port... including a faithful …

Re: What was the first computer you ever purchased?

in Milliways
First one paid for with my own hard-earned cash? A generic Pentium II build which I honestly don't even remember much about, other than the Voodoo II. Even Microsoft was using UNIX computers as there Backbone webservers and database servers. ( lol, it’s true and it was funny to see ). Why funny? …
