Re: Do movies suck these days?

in Milliways
...Men routinely depicted as neutered weaklings, especially white men.... Could the media's frequent depiction of men as weaklings be a reflection of a trend in American society? This morning, I listened to this interview with Richard V. Reeves about his new book Of Boys and Men: Why the Modern …

Re: Do movies suck these days?

in Milliways
As a person who is a minority in one way, I'm thankful for the western media's promotion of tolerance because viewers are affected by the media that they consume. Mankind is in a sad state, when being told what to think (here, by TV) is considered a good thing. I think that I understand your point— …

Re: Do movies suck these days?

I'm pretty sure movies have always sucked. We forget the bad ones and remember the good ones, giving the impression that things were better in the past. They weren't. You nailed it, Errius. ...Star Trek TOS, in which diversity simply felt reasonable, progressive and honest... I disagree. When Star …

Re: How China's invasion on Taiwan affects PC market

in Milliways
I recommend the video Taiwan conflict - Facing the threat from China | DW Documentary to anyone who is interested in the Taiwanese people's debate between the status quo, independence and reunification. (Spoiler alert: It's mostly a debate between the status quo and independence.)

Re: My computer isn't working.

in Windows
I own 2 slotkets. The first slotket that I bought did not work on my motherboard with a pin-modded 1.4 GHz Tualatin Celeron, but it worked fine on my motherboard with a 1.1 GHz Coppermine-128 Celeron. Then, I bought a different kind of slotket, and it works fine on my motherboard with the pin-modded …

Many people love NFS 2. There are unofficial patches and wrappers that can help you. See https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Need_for_Speed_II

Re: How China's invasion on Taiwan affects PC market

in Milliways
As long as Taiwan continues to show strength with a respectable military, a good economy and broad public support for their current form of government, the island will remain outside of Beijing's control. If any of those 3 legs of the stool becomes weak, then Beijing might try to take advantage of …

Re: Trying to find Jane's ATF v1.03f. Help?

in DOS
On the technical side, we can't patch any files that are read from the CD at runtime. We would need to determine if there is a difference between the ATF 1.00f CD-stored files that are used at runtime and their ATF 1.03f counterparts. If there is a difference, then creating an unofficial patch …

Re: Trying to find Jane's ATF v1.03f. Help?

in DOS
Yeah, I'm sorry that we couldn't find a working patch. Maybe there's some music in the ATF Digital Music Update that will ease our sorrow. https://archive.org/download/ATFDIG/ATF_DIG.EXE

Re: Trying to find Jane's ATF v1.03f. Help?

in DOS
I admit that I misread your first post. You wrote that you own ATF disc version 3, which was made in the USA. BBC in your disc's label ATFOEMBBC may stand for Best Buy Co., which sold PCs and PC games in the USA in 1999. It's odd that your disc doesn't contain the fully patched DOS version of ATF …

Re: Trying to find Jane's ATF v1.03f. Help?

in DOS
That's unfortunate. Might the 1.03f patch be buried deep somewhere on the NATO Fighters disc? Does your NATO disc have non-English writing on it? (I noticed that your disc was made in Europe and its text is in English. I wouldn't expect a British version to be different from the American version, …

Re: Dial Up Networking 1.4

in Windows
Windows 2000 and Windows Me have a totally different networking stack than Windows 95, 98 and 98 SE. Windows 2000 and Me do not need DUN 1.4. Navigating archive.org is slow. Successful searches are never guaranteed. Usually, I first search for an old URL using Google and then directly enter the old …
