I hope it won't happen in Canada too.

Is my future doomed?

I started making fanmade DOS games in 1997 but Microsoft stopped supporting DOS with Vesta.
Of course, you can still play DOS games today with DOSBOX, But newest generations of gamers
won't care these games anyway.
Later in 2008, I started making flash movies but again, recent devices stopped supporting Flash
anyway. Of course I can make car...

Vaio power cord and Canada 150th aniversary flag

Posted by Serguei2, 25 July 2017 · 177 views

My Sony Vaio went worst: the power cord is damaged. 
I went to stores to buy another one but, nothing. 
I guess I need to order it from on-line stores.
I guess Vaio is not supported anymore because Sony stopped supporting it.
On other note:

We have a new Canada flag for it's 150th anniversary.

Youtube red thing

Posted by Serguei2, 19 November 2016 · 243 views

I noted there's a red bar below the videos on Youtube.

First, I don't get it until I figured out.
The red bar is how long time you watched a video.
A full red bar is you watched a full video.

I bought both Visa and MasterCard gift cards.
I have no problem with my MasterCard giftcard.
All the online stores accept MasterCard giftcards.
Otherwise, I really have issues with my Visa giftcard. 
Almost all online stores won't accept Visa giftcards.
I will spend the rest of the money in my Visa giftc...

I bought a Sony Vaio in 2009 with Blu-Ray drive.
Seven years later, DVDs are still popular.

A room editor for my colecovision game

Posted by Serguei2, in Programming Colecovision 30 August 2016 · 300 views

I made a room editor for my colecovision game.
It would be easier to design rooms.

With this editor, you can export codes to make the game like this.

Just copy and past these codes to your programs.
I noted CCI supports only strings with 256 characters. But this is still fine.
