  1. nice work how did you make those pics?
  2. Isn't 'Doctor Robert' the worst Beatles song?

    Or am I wrong.

      Docter Robbert is still better than the entirety of Beatles for sale lmo

      I just listened to it. It has a horribly generic 1960s sound, but as others said, it's not their worst song. They also made a bunch of good ones, so . . .

      Speaking of the White Album, I was just hopping through some of the songs and it's pretty clear that "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO was inspired by "Martha My Dear."

  3. (waxing whimsically...) Ah, the thrill of a coding victory; nothing quite like an 'IT WORKS!' moment produced from clear thought. 🤓

     

  4. You know what I think is funny, is that so many of guys here on AA punctuate a status update with a !.  It reminds me of the comics we used to read.  For some reason little Orphan Annie, it particular.

  5. I'm considering Alienware.  m11x, to be specific.  Any opinions?

      I have a couple Alienwares, not terribly PC educated(perfectly "functional, tho"), I imagine my two cents is all but worthless, but here we go.

      Got the laptop several years ago, not a great one, cats knocked it off the couch and the hinge broke the first few days I had it, wasn't terminal, but kinda sucked.

      Didn't work well for long, had some problem updating the software, wound up having to put a new OS on it, it functions, but not great.

      Have an Area 51 as well, my main PC-it's OK, Wife got it on sale, good price.

      I'm OK with it, but people tell me I'd have been better off with something that didn't have as much proprietary stuff going on, for whatever that's worth, I guess it can cause conflicts if you don't really stay on top of it.

      So I dunno. If you have the $ for one, seems like you can't really go completely "wrong" with one, but I'm thinking most versed PC users might try to get you to make a different choice.

      Good Luck, regardless!!!

      Hardy-har-har!  Thing is, tho, I only wish me and my real brother got along better.  Too bad, so sad...

       

  7. When did 'The Mandalorian' become who he is?  I mean, isn't he merely Boba Fett on steroids?

      Thanks for hiding that massive spoiler.  Having not seen any of the show yet, I really appreciate you doing so.

      ^Fear not!  I saw no spoiler in that query...

       

      He was raised by Mandalorians and learned their ways...

      He is the Red Viper, Prince Oberin. You should see him with a spear.

  10. What kind of jeans do dogs wear?  Smell-bottoms!

     

  11. Its heart is in the right place and the trailers even look cool, but 'The Mandalorian' really doesn't do it for me.

      It's a good show, but you don't have to watch it if you don't want to...

       

      TBH, I didn't want to watch anything SW related for a while because of all the toxic nerds who ruin things for everyone.  I say see them for yourself and ignore what other people say.  Being a "fan" doesn't mean being part of a some hive mind.

      Exactly!  Always make up your own mind! Of course that's almost a theme here, from the OP to what CPUWIZ said.  You'll either like it or you won't I guess.

      'The Madalorian' looks interesting, but I am not into adding yet another bill to the already expensive and limited internet I can get where I live. For me, ignorance is largely bliss as I am not desperate to see it or anything else coming out of Hollywood nowadays. I am glad it appears someone is getting Star Wars right again.

  12. yes see xxl's work for the int. chiptune music not so shabby either!
  13. yeah though 1/10,000 of a second is pretty darn good. All I hear - read about - is how the ST still stacks up to modern day systems.
  14. I did not know there was an internal speaker on any ST variant. Are there any other makes with said same? Is it a nice feature? How does it compare to the 8bit gallery (i.e. 400, 800) with their internal speakers? To me, that was a huge plus.
