Re: Advice on a good VGA to HDMI scaler?

in Milliways
I use the Sewell Hammerhead . I've not run into any issues with it. I made a video of it quite some time ago here . I've since upgraded my LCD to a BenQ. The old one was a Hanns-G. The BenQ seems to have issues with some resolutions, but I blame that on the monitor, not the Sewell. I should note, …

Re: HTTPS is available

in Milliways
Thanks for this. For some added security you may want to add the following header: X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN This will prevent any embedded, IFRAMES running. You could also look into Content-Security-Policy header, but that one is a bit more complicated, esp since I see this site uses embedded …

Re: How to mirror a reasonably large web site?

in Milliways
It really depends on the website. If it uses js/ajax/json, then it won't mirror very well. But, for static websites. wget works well enough: Copy code to clipboard 1 wget --mirror --convert-links --adjust-extension --page-requisites --no-parent http://example.org

Re: Other hobbies?

in Milliways
Other than retro PC games I also collect retro console games. I've also built a MAME cabinet. Outside of gaming I'm into movies and I am rather proud of my home theater setup. I also tinker with RC cars. I've built one from scratch. That gets me out of the house. To spend excess energy I like to …

Re: Day of the Tentacle Remastered

I actually prefer the new graphics. It is so nice to finally have full screen widescreen in this classic. IMO, they did an outstanding job redrawing everything. It is just how I would have imagined it being. The only downside is that with high res artwork, the low framerate of the animation really …

Re: Batlezone 98 Redux

I played this back in '98. It was a fun game, perhaps a little bit ahead of its time. Was not a huge fan of the strategy elements, but the shooting was fun. Being able to get out, walk around, and switch tanks was a good time. This is a remaster, just some slightly cleaned up textures and models, …

http://i3.ytimg.com/vi/AcOd-0YgPSU/hqdefault.jpg I picked up a Razer Chroma keyboard/mouse set. I was feeling the need for some more flash on my desktop, and this fits the bill nicely. I apologize in advance for my badly robotic voice-over skills in this video. Right now I have it running with an …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

in Milliways
Delicious :) Looks like a nice system. Friend of mine's supposed to gift me his two GTX 970's in a few months when pascal comes out. Literally just "give"? That is one generous friend. 8-O I may upgrade to the 1080 (Pascal) or what ever numerical moniker they give it. I've had this 970 since late …

I already had the video card, but bought the Mobo, RAM, CPU, and SSD. Now I'm all ready for VR. :blush: Note: this shot is not the final case, this is just the …

Re: Lost interest in new games since a couple of years...

in Milliways
While there are ebbs and flows to my interest level, it never completely goes away. I find that if I'm bored with the status quo, it is time to try something different. There are so many facets to gaming, and so many options, that if you are bored, you really didn't look hard enough. I find that …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
After playing MGSV and Fallout4 for months, and essentially finishing them as much as I wanted to, I moved on to some online gaming I've been meaning to try. I'm playing CounterStrike:GO at the office on Lunch breaks. In the evening I've been playing Rocket League and GTAV:Online. I have the say …

Re: Neat little CRT terminal emulator

in Milliways
I stumbled upon this a few months back. It works very well and is fun to play with. Might be a window manager bug, but on Mate there is about 3 pixels of empty space at the top of the window above the monitor bezel.
