  1. Finally have Big Sur running stable on my Mac Mini.  It took a while since it's not officially supported (2012 model).  Turns out it was a corrupted external hard drive that was causing my random crashes (I think anyway).

      You should still be getting security updates on Catalina for another year.

      Most third party SSDs should work fine in a Mac Mini. The problem with the Mac Pro I think was due to its design, which allowed for less flexibility in third party components. I'd highly recommend upgrading your Mac Mini to 16 GB if you plan on using it for a few more years, you'll definitely notice the difference if you end up using a lot of tabs in your browser.

  3. Watching SteveMRE1989Info on YouTube; he's eating reindeer stew from a Norwegian arctic field ration.

     

    It actually looks good!

      Yeah I saw that too, as well as him eating Civil War-era hardtack.

      I'm surprised he's still alive.

  5. Watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture yesterday and promptly passed out. I thought people were exaggerating.

      It's truly rare when I can watch through the whole film without dozing off. Having said that, it's a great way to snooze, I always get restful sleep when that happens.

  6. I just called all parties trying to monetize on the Amiga name/brand/technology to be rabies infested vultures. It feels both good and appropriate.

  7. Do Macs have stupid updates that it forces you to update and takes away 20 minutes of your life?

      If you're looking for painless OS updates, take a look at some Linux distros. Most can install updates without requiring a restart. I've been using Solus for several years now, and at most I just need to log out and log back in once the kernel is updated.

  11. That's just great Apple. Saying you have the fastest integrated graphics is like saying you're driving the fastest Yugo.

      Yeah but you wouldn't believe what those souped-up Yugos can do!

  12. Hunter (1984-1991) is on Tubi - all seasons. Cool formula -- tough rule breaker paired with a beautiful fellow misfit on the force. Mopar heaven with McCall's 1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z which was later upgraded to the newer version.  I've watched 4 episodes already. "Works for me."

    1. Sauron

      Yes I've had good luck with Tubi. Even though it's ad-supported, I just haven't seen all that many ads, maybe one per episode.

  14. I think that there should be an alternate AtariAge chat channel. How about either Viber, Signal, or Telegram?

  15. so my daughter's friends came over today for the first time in months, and I recently hit an amazing lynx score (the stuff in the market place is actually less than half the score save the systems, the rest I'm keeping)

    and the older boy wanted to play games, I asked if he wanted to try out some multiplayer, he wanted to so while holding the lynx 2 I asked do you want the big one or the small one, he says the small one, 

    so I hand him the lynx 2, and he says wait what? then I take out the lynx 1 and his jaw drops.

    Then we played some of the lynx multiplayer games, battle wheels sure is  fun, as is xenophobe (probably the best xenophobe) and we had some laughs at pit fighter

      If you have Warbirds that one is tons of fun to play multiplayer as well.

  16. I just felt old and out of the loop. AMD has announced that they think 4 GB RAM on a video card is too little for current gaming, and think the lower end should be raised to 6-8 GB. On the video card, not on the computer itself.

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      That will only make sense if more games are optimized for using as much Graphics RAM as possible. Right now not all games will even make use of 4 GB unless the graphic details are cranked way up.

      I've been using Telegram more and more, but it hasn't really caught on much here in the US.

  19. I hate people who come in here only to post their YouTube videos. Can we please ban them?

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      You'll get no argument from me. While some of the Youtubers here are helpful and entertaining, there are definitely plenty others who only post here for pimping their videos, and that gets annoying very quickly.

  20. Just got a Red Dragon keyboard + mouse combo, with a mechanical feel. Not as good as a regular mechanical keyboard, but worlds better than most other standard membrane keyboards.

      It either has to do with having the most post or the most likes. I'm still not sure.

  22. I can't stand it when people celebrate someone getting banned from here like rjchamp3 when Albert said congrations.   I makes me sad.  I politcal and reglious discussions don't bother me execpt flamewars.    Not much bothers me anyone after all the pain and suffering I have been through my whole life.  I am scared I might get banned someday.  

  23. Is it it me or is AA traffic down quite a bit these past few days?

    1. Sauron

      It's just you. There are almost 150 users online at the moment, with hundreds of new posts a day occurring in dozens of different subforums. Just because the discussions aren't occurring in the ones you frequent doesn't mean they're not happening.
