Those were games designed only for single player, where you relished your loneliness. Beautiful visuals, sound effects and music, intriguing/infuriating puzzles. GOG have them DRM free.
I say single player, but the wife and I played them together.
I got Riven working via wine on my MythBox with a Wii controller so I could play it on my 42 inch plasma with 5.1 sound. Awesome experience.
Yes, back when Solar was still hot in Australia, a 3kwH system would set you back $8000-$12,000 and that was with heavy subsidies.
They're going dirt cheap now because of installers trying to offload stock.
I have a 1.5KwH system in Brisbane, wish I could justify a 3KwH system, but without the FIT it doesn't add up now.
If we had cheap overnight storage of power I'd go offgrid.
I have a permanent vpn gateway between my home and work - I must be some sort of super pirate,
No need, my hot water is solar.
Just looking at ways to store my solar for use over night, a bit more extensively than the fridge. Plus I'd be very wary of turning a freezer or fridge off overnight here, defrosts very quickly.
They aren't practical for long-term storage, either due to energy density or due to their tendency to lose power over time pretty quickly.
I'd be curious to know what you consider long term, as it might not be as long as you think for a home storage situation.
I have a 1.5kwh array on my home, which generates a little excess during the day and of course, is useless at night
I've considered bumping it up to 3 or 5kwh as I get no effective use out of the excess generation (8c/KwH). However if I could buffer it for 24-48 hours then I could effectively power my house overnight. I live in Brisbane, Australia, so it would be effectively off grid for 80% of the year.
YES. Finish Crusade.
I'm sorry, as much as I loved Babylon 5, it simply doesn't stand the test of time when you watch it in your 30s rather than as a teenager.
I watched it for the first time in my 30s and still found it absolutely brilliant. Just sayin'.
First saw it in my 40's here and I must agree - great show - plot, characters and yes the effects. I still think they stand up ok.
Still enjoy re-watching a season.
Nice summary, thanks.
This isn't the new desktop shell (Plasma2? PlasmaNext?), its basically the libs behind it, so there are no screen shots per se.
I must admit I find the new branding/naming conventions very confusing.
Wow. Just wow,
AMD supports openGL just fine, but they aren't gracefully failing sloppy programming. The Nvidia driver tends to try and make "something you probably sort of meant anyway" out of your illegal openGL instruction and AMD fails you hard with an error message. That's no reason to blame the manufacturer.
Nvidia is hewing to the following:
In computing, the robustness principle is a general design guideline for software:
Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others (often reworded as "Be conservative in what you send, be liberal in what you accept").
The principle is also known as Postel's law, after Internet pioneer Jon Postel, who wrote in an early specification of the Transmission Control Protocol
Its generally a good idea in when implementing a standard, if you want people to use it. Slavish perfectionism is the bane of developers that has killed many a project.
Interesting until you slagged off Qt. Its a superior framework and for me, vastly better than the mess that is Gtk.
I give it another play around sometime soon, but it would have to other a lot more to persuade me to migrate now
I did, easier than openstack to put together, but still very fiddly and at the time I tried it, required a min of three nodes.
