Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

in Milliways
I've been through this once or twice, though the last time seems to have stuck. I never went as hard at it as some in here, but I did end up with way too much gear a few times. The better stuff I sold, only to see prices go throough the room later. Some stuff I just had to chuck, like recently I got …

Re: Best way to take photos for posting ?

in Milliways
Probably they are primarily optics companies and cameras aren't necessarily their biggest earners anyway. Fuji makes more money from instax than digital. The camera companies that get involved with phones seem to be panasonic (they makeor made phones anyway, and they had the cm1 i think it was), …

Re: Marketplace alternatives in 2019?

in Milliways
There have been some massive PC parts threads on amibay, how quickly things go depend on how attached you are to them (how much you are willing to let them go for). But a few users on here seem to have had huge sale threads on amibay. The rules are not hard to work within, and the mods are tolerant …

Re: Drunk'en eBay'ing

in Milliways
There have been things i've been dithering over stuff online and then gone to bed drunk and bought the stuff when i woke up in the middle of the night, still inebriated. I remember my drunk self didn't even think about it, just "yep, having that". Not yet bought anything i regret, but there's always …

Re: Why do PC first person shooters use checkpoints?

in Milliways
Yeah I agree that being able to save whenever you want ruins the enjoyment. On the other hand, if i'm trying to save so often it ruins my enjoyment, I'm probably being too precious about doing it right so i'm not enjoying it anyway >.< Ah the stress when you itr's taken an hour or two to get to a …

Re: Favourite version of Windows?

in Milliways
There are plenty of things I would not have thought corporate clients would accept, but they have [at least where I work, which is heavily security-sconcious]. So eventual acceptance of some form of cortana may happen, it will depend on how much corporate IT can control or divert it, which is not …

Re: Favourite version of Windows?

in Milliways
For me these days it would be these actually installed: - 10 because apart from a few glitches it basically just works and runs all my newish software - 98 or 98SE for older stuff - XP just in case I need it, but not sure why I would [probably why it just sits unused] Back in the day I really liked …

Re: Video editing software advice?

in Milliways
I tried OpenShot on Windows but at the time I tried it, it seemed flakey and prone to crashing to desktop. I ended up using Davinci Resolve [the free version] from Blackmagic Design; I don't use it often but I like(d) the workflow/interface, it's packed with features and there are plenty of …

Re: Link Between Depression and 'Collecting'?

in Milliways
Haven't read the mighty walls of text in this thread, but i recognise some of the issues the OP mentions. I find it a danger in any sort of collecting, but also in gaming (on line or otherwise), browsing internet forums and for sale ads. And yeah GAS is one part but so is the opposite. I think the …

Re: Old feature phones / smartphones

in Milliways
Still have my old Nokia 6310i which i loved, and my Lumia 410 (which got outmoded but i kept as a spare then forgot about). Other old phones either broke, wore out, or in one case i actually sold (my XDA, which i miss much like Palm pdas). Tried using the 6310i recently, but some things it's hard to …

Re: Warcraft film

in Milliways
I played bits of 1 and 2, a lot of 3, and WoW up to WoD. The film feels like later WoW expansions, too much balancing this and that action or emotion or whatever, too many inconsistencies, and some actions characters take which don't seem authentic or simply don't make sense, overblown special …

Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

in Milliways
Reminds me how annoyed I am at that some of the things I bought on itunes, but apparently never backed up [cos surely I didn't need to...], got removed from the apple store by the copyright holder. Luckily I don't use steam. Gog seems to wrap everything up to work [mostly] though I recall an issue …

Re: Giving windows Vista a second chance

in Milliways
For what it's worth i have a pc running vista: phenom ii x6, 8gb ram, hd4850, m-audio 24/96. Used for photo storage/editing. I'm using vista 64 ultimate because i had the disk so why cough up for 7 or later, vista does the job and to my eye is nicer than later windows. I wish it booted faster and …
