Listen, I don't know what's going on here. I'm a small town sheriff, and not convinced there's some crazy killer about town. I'll send a squad car out to check it out. Hmm, the phone lines are down.

    I've uninstalled Java everywhere. It's over.

    Java is still widely used, and it's the main programming language that we use in our CS and CIS classes, but it's gone through some weird growing pains lately. NetBeans fell behind a bit after the transition to the Apache Project, which didn't help either.

    (Fortunately, Java 8 is still an active Long Term Support release. Most Java shops seem to be sticking with 8 for the time being, until the tools and libraries catch up a little more with Java 11.)

With no family plans this Christmas, I could have tons of free time to either binge on Fallout 76 or finally make a TI-99/4A podcast.

    Well Fallout 76 is a giant pile poop so it really looks like your choice is obvious at this point. Enjoy making your podcast and Merry Christmas! :)

The SouljaBoy video game console story is hilarious. It's the hip-hop version of the Coleco Chameleon

    The one hit wonder must be broke from his 2007 dance track. Could never call him hip hop. Beef with Soulja Boy looks like his version of Back 2 The Future for the NES....

I wonder what THE SPACE BOSS from rec.games.video.classic days is up to nowadays. Probably has been awake for 3 days straight.

The hidden menu on the Playstation Classic looks just like the menu for the various emulators on my 10 year old Dingoo A320.

    It's actually the same kid in every movie. It's just an old animatronic Disney came up with long ago for the movie industry to use. They just re-skin it when needed.

I would like to try to make retro-style games in C#(already have something going), but I'm having major writers block here.

    Maybe a trip to archive .org and playing some emulated classic games would spark some inspiration. Also, if you know C you can make actual Coleco, Genesis, 2600 and even SNES games (among others).

    And if he knows C, it isn't a huge step down to BASIC which enables him to program for yet more classic systems. I think the audience relative to effort is greater if you go for a real retro system than a modern system with a retro feel.

    C# is in the C family of programming languages, but C# and C are very different. C# targets the CLI, so you're not going to get C# programs to run on vintage platforms. Of course, retro-style games on modern platforms is certainly possible.

Multi-gigabyte downloads before being allowed to play a new game really sours the experience.

Madness, PigBag, Devo, Styx: all bands featured in Honda commercials. Weird how the Mr ROboto song was used now for 2 auto makers.

    Three words: apple cider vinegar. It changes your stomach pH and helps recovery from food poisoning. Dilute two tablespoons in a tall glass of water, and try not to let it touch your teeth too much going down. It tastes terrible, but it's always worked for me.

    Better get checked out for pneumonia or flu. Urgent Care places like the one at CVS charge about the same co-pay as a family doc visit.
