Comment Re:60Hz ? (Score 1) 156

this is for computer monitors and almost all of them are 60HZ cause no one makes a good computer monitor anymore

besides with compression and even USB3 speeds just cause it can drive a 60 or 120hz screen doesnt mean its video is actually refreshing at 60 or 120Hz, things similar in function have been known to drop frames and kind of smudge the leftovers together for a kind of "tween" effect ala 1990's music videos

to be fair it was the old asshats who were abusing the customers in this and every other case within the last couple years

now I dont have any doubt the new management has their own "plans", but for the time being its a little harsh to blame them for everything every past fucktard including the original founders of this network have done to mess up the walls around here

Comment Re:Wasn't the C64 just a BASIC interpreter anyways (Score 2) 119

jeesus reading the comments to this question makes me feel old, and also sad that there is such bad information given to the op

yes if you stay away from peeks, pokes, graphics, sound, joystic / paddle io, and the charater set of the C64 they are mostly portable, until they are not cause the methods have different names on different computers depending on if they were keeping compatibility with some pre MS BASIC (such as apple, tandy commie and just about everyone else)
