Proton Mail requiring new web browser features

July 22, 2022

Web browsers these days have soooooo much functionality, can it even be called a web browser anymore?

Ubuntu desktop screenshot from 2019

December 30, 2019

Screenshot from my first month using Linux as a daily driver, starting with Ubuntu.

Much has changed since then. The idea of a tycoon game was scrapped following a growing hatred towards capitalism, and I ended up not really wanting to make games. I now main Artix Linux being more familiar with Linux. I don't use Steam or play or even pay attention to modern games anymore, probably due to lackluster Linux support and DRM.

The enemy of people with thin arms. You're actually hurting us!

Windows 2000 Beziers screensaver

???, 2009

Something I remember somehow, sitting on the floor in the elementary school computer lab, and not paying attention to the teacher because I was staring at this screensaver on one of their computers.

Wii date settings, can't go above 2035

June 25, 2022

The Wii's year in the settings won't go above 2035. Does this have something to do with the year 2038 problem? Probably not.

Digital Rights Management - Content restricted by GREED

A DRM thing, parodying the ESRB's video game ratings

Go Vacation photo book

June 18, 2022

I wonder if Go Vacation's photo book can be extracted from the save file into standard image files.

The save file is much too small to hold 100 whole images, so I'm guessing the game is just storing a description of everything in the photo, requiring the game's assets to reconstruct.

Edit: Upon closer inspection, I actually believe they are all JPEG's, which can be compressed further than a lossless algorithm like PNG.

Windows XP using Tor

I take my fair share of risks

Early 2000s PC parts

June 2, 2022

When rummaging through some junk left outside nearby, I found enough parts to be well into building an early 2000s PC.

There is a lot of old hardware in attics, crawlspaces, storage units, and landfills, with their owners not caring or thinking about them, waiting to be unearthed, cleaned and/or repaired, and distributed to people who will use and appreciate them.

Bright backlight

Going back to my TFT monitor after using IPS and CRT for two weeks, wow do blacks ever look so bright

screenshot of Langton's Ant on my graphing calculator

August 16, 2021

I programmed Langton's Ant on my graphing calculator and made it wrap around the screen, which made a good tilable background for this site. It's easier to see here than in the low contrast of the site's background.

Microsoft Visual Basic BASICS textbook, VB6 working model and project files on CD

May 20, 2022

A Visual Basic textbook I found that someone was throwing out. It had CD copies of VB6 and the project files used in the book, so I was able to dabble around with it.

This is not the original cover as this is a copy printed by Cengage Larning.

Deus Ex on CRT monitor

May 20, 2022

Got my hands on a CRT monitor, such a beauty (but not on my crappy camera)

I'd like to see it next to an OLED when more OLED computer monitors are available, as CRT and OLED share many advantages.

CRT in the dark

May 21, 2022

Since CRT's are not backlit, they are 100% BLACK in a dark room

A bunch of stuff open in SerenityOS

May 30, 2022

Together we can build a new glorious era. One that is lightweight, open, free from corporate tyranny, and in C++?!
