I'm still in disbelief at how much you have to do to replace the HDD of a Mac Mini 2014+. I even had to do the coathanger shit.

No more white on blue icons. Society has progressed past the need for white on blue icons

So I guess this mozilla firefox branded vpn is supposed to be cause you hate performance and trust a company that fired everyone from their forward-facing projects recently while continuing to increase executive pay more than comcast

ok more than comcast, maybe

Did Dell challenge themselves to create as much plastic waste as possible with their early 2000s desktops? I just ripped apart an old Optiplex and managed to fill half of a blue bag with everything that came off of it.

Honestly I wasn't even sure if I was awake when I saw the news that Microsoft absorbed Zenimax

Diabotical is fun, but every time I play it I can't help but pine for an arena shooter with air control. If only Reflex hadn't been such a fuckup toward the end of early access.

Interesting to see that there's still a bunch of GC/Wii and PS3 specific stuff still present in mainline Linux. I have to wonder what it's still doing there since I'm fairly sure the last kernel ever booted on the Wii was a 3.x LTS release done in 2017, but anyone who could get a 5.x running on it would have my undying respect.

First we get a drip feed of NES and SNES games that can be emulated without issue by just about every device on the planet. Now we're getting a limited run of a collection of 3D Mario games that doesn't even include Galaxy 2, all at full retail price of course. If Microsoft pulled this shit with the old Halo games, people would be furious for years.

God I fucking hate Nintendo. Not once have they competently managed to keep their old games playable in some form on the Switch.

Never mind. Drive is dead, soldered CMOS battery is dead, and the power supply is making angry noises. This thing isn't doing shit.

Still kind of amazed at the lengths people have gone to in order to keep MKWii alive

Uncle gave me his ancient machine to do what I want with and I'm having a bit of a dilemma: I don't have the enthusiasm for tinkering with super old DOS hardware myself but at the same time I'm not sure who is going to buy a 486SX machine when the DX is what people actually want.

Maybe I'll just run Doom for the novelty once I get his files off of it. Might do Win95 and some kind of stupid old Linux/BSD system if I'm feeling really ambitious and this thing actually has enough RAM.

This Nintendo leak shit is going to keep me occupied for a while.
