Re: New to the hobby, soldering anxiety

in Milliways
My Mom and I are both disabled already and the thought that, through doing this hobby, I might introduce something that worsens our situation scares the shit out of me. She doesn't care and largely thinks I'm being ridiculous fwiw. To make things worse really the only part of our house that has …

Re: Visitor frequency down?

in Milliways
From the perspective of someone who mostly browses "Active Topics", it looks like the emulation sections are a bit quieter now while the retro hardware and software forums are seeing an uptick. That's just my impression though. I don't have any stats to back it up. Ahh.. thats it then, you …

Re: intel 12 gen cpus

in Milliways
Personally, I don't favor Intel, so I'm happy to supply this info: Jens Axboe When I picked it up, he was at 5.1M IOPS Per-Core With AMD Zen 3 + Intel Optane. Now he is at 10M IOPS Per-Core., its crazy 😉

Visitor frequency down?

in Milliways
I find the parts I visit frequently to be somewhat less busy. Is this me or are there less posts than usual? Maybe I'm loosing interest. Let me know 😉

Cracktro's, and specifically Dutch.... Hmmm, other than the ones you already mentioned, none come to mind. How many Dutch groups were there anyway (on PC)? No idea, not much, THG blew all competition out of the water. They were fast and furiously active from 1990-1994, so it kinda dried up I guess. …

Found another one , "control software", that brought back some old memories. I discovered that they are probably the former FBINC guys. The code is the same, it just looks different. Its a later version going by the date, although it seems to do less. They added encryption, which was removed quite …

Re: 8-Bit Guy video's are becoming a chore!

in Milliways
I'm surprised to read this as Dutch are known to speak English very well and even to be the best non-native English speakers in terms of accent as well. That might be true as hell, but I can't get used to the accent. Its like sand in my food. I will try watching OLDROBOT, although I must say the …

Re: 8-Bit Guy video's are becoming a chore!

in Milliways
I like Russians, especially when they speak English. At least their accent isn't as horrible as those Dutch people. Beating a dead horse with a dead bird that Dutch accent although they are straight to the point like most Russians imo. Added Jan and Adrian to my subscription list then I stumbled on …
