Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.
After temporarily giving up on my Amiga 4000 yesterday, I decided to fire up the Amiga 1200 that's on my desk. After switching it to PAL mode in both Early Startup and in Preferences, I found I was finally able to play all of the WHDLoad games that would never run. I had to add PAL to the tooltypes for a couple of games, but now virtually EVERY GAME I OWN will run properly without NTSC cutoff.
I just played Breathless for the first time. What a game!
I've been fighting with my Amiga 4000D for the past hour, trying to get a picture on my TV to no avail.
I figured it was a defective RGB-to-SCART cable, until I read that certain SCART-to-HDMI converters don't work with certain RGB signals. An acquaintance in my Color Computer group recommended a model that DOES work. Time to shell out yet more money...
So someone's going to storm Area 51 on September 20th? Guess what else will happen on the same day: a global climate strike.
So don't get fooled, this Area 51 thing is nothing but a media hoax to draw attention away from the climate crisis and collective action. Just ignore it, will you, and fight for the climate.
So, to spill the beans somewhat... A couple of months ago, I was offered a promotion, whereby I'd be heading up our company's IT department. I got the job (started at the beginning of this month), but as it turns out, I'll be focusing less on the IT aspect and more on efficiencies and analytics.
Remember when I said I'd quit if our VP of Operations hired an efficiency expert? He didn't hire one... he gave ME the job.
It's been extremely difficult tracking down a proper 5mm eyelet bolt for Amandine, my vintage Peugeot NS Pliant bike. I saw one on eBay but the seller wanted $50 USD and $20 shipping. Screw that!
I took out my Dremel and tried drilling out the opening of the bolt, but the bit snapped. So, I used the polishing drum instead and went around the fender stay instead, filing it down to fit the eyelet.
It ain't pretty, but it holds. Aquarian hacker mentality to the rescue!

Engaging, positive, but cynical. Prefer discourse to arguing. If I boost, I agree.
