    Meant that the keyboard cycles on and off during POST. Will add that to the ticket at some point. Unrelated to the bootloader but still a relevant piece of information

    It’s slow going between my schedule and then being in a different time zone, along with me having trouble communicating what’s occuring on my end (the frustration is partly why I…[Read more]

    The Harley Quinn Annual made a good point regarding calzones: in essence, they’re just folded pizzas. However, many places put their own spin on them turning them into a sort of hand pie instead of a turnover. In which case, are calzo es still technically pizza turnovers? Even more importantly, will such a distinction cause an extinction level…[Read more]

    I think the firmware upgrade also did something with the loading of devices. I notice that the keyboard cycles now during the UEFI loading, which it didn’t before. May not matter in the long run, though. Assuming I can still get to the UEFI menu when needed, I’m okay with device loading being a bit finicky during initialization.

    I couldn’t say…[Read more]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/They_Live was pretty ridiculous but an absolute blast. Highly recommended!

    The BusyBox environment is a text-only affair so I’m not sure if the mouse drivers are being loaded. The keyboard is loaded by the UEFI, Windows, and Live USB image so there’s something funky going on with the bootloader on Linux. I’ve gone ahead and opened a ticket. At the very least, I hope they’ll be able to fix the firmware cleanup step for…[Read more]

    Well, I just tried to repair the bootloader using the same steps I performed before and it failed spectacularly. All I get now is a BusyBox interface on boot and no keyboard support so I can’t even access any overrides. Fortunately, Windows still works. Guess I’ll need to pester support after all. May need to reinstall Linux but, fortunately, all…[Read more]

    Looks like it still gets updated sporadically, though! Mostly for compatibility issues, from the looks of the repository (as opposed to a suppository :P)

    Yeah, being able to embed card information like some other media would be of great benefit. Will do some digging! I know the Reddit communities have bots that trawl the databases on request and…[Read more]

    A nuclear bunker themed eatery could be fun in a somewhat morbid way. The menu could have things such as Glow In The Dark (a mixed drink), Bug Burgers (hamburgers crafted to look like roaches), and the like. 😛

    A few years back, I suggested that the world’s supercomputers be tuned to either SETI@Home (now defunct) or Folding@Home to help with…[Read more]

    Saw a hazmat employee picking up lunch in the McDonald’s drive-thru today. Didn’t think to get a picture but seeing the truck there gave me a chuckle

    I generally have a policy of sitting through a film, no matter how bad. I’ve survived many a B-movie and have lived to tell the tale! 😛

    Probably should be mentioned there!

    Loved Hitchhiker’s Guide! Also enjoyed Dirk Gently but, sadly, it was cancelled before they actually wrapped up the story. They were just about to start exploring Blackwing…[Read more]

    They have a few other locations around the country as well, each with a completely different theme! Looks like they poopooed a Florida location at some point so, sadly, I’m not sure I’ll be able to experience them any time soon. Looks like a blast, though. 🙂

    Also a good way to have your spices go missing if a wicked witch visits for the day.…[Read more]

    Yeah, that’s strange. I’ve never had an issue like that when switching out the display. I’ve gone from HDMI to DisplayPort without anything amiss. Gremlins, maybe?

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Software: On & Off the Web in the forum Discussion 1 month ago

    Nope, never came across that issue. Bit odd if it’s just testing it through a system call.

    Cool! Could be quite handy!

    Yep, can concur! A couple of my friends just started playing FO 1 and 2 again due to all the hype. Still need to play them myself… That and I never did make much progress in New Vegas. Not sure why when I quite enjoyed Fallout 3

    Here’s a somewhat somber article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lost_inventions

    Incomplete as it doesn’t mention the Antikythera mechanism and probably others but an interesting read all the same.

    Important tip for Master Duel: focus on acquiring the staples after assembling a decent deck in the beginning. It’ll let you quickly upgrade things. Don’t do like I did and wait five months to start getting them. I would have had a much easier time if I had gotten them early on… 😛

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Sounds and Music in the forum Discussion 1 month ago

    Nightwish is great. Haven’t listened to them much lately (been many many years) but I’m changing that 🙂

    I’ve also noticed that sometimes the sites ignore your email settings altogether until you click the unsubscribe links at the bottom of the offer emails. Gets pretty annoying 😛

    Looks like it’s back up now!

    Yeah, the comments look like they’ve had a database puke, blending comments together from several different entries. The result is…[Read more]

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Hardware Relics in the forum Discussion 1 month ago

    Great! Hopefully that old issue with the power plans is resolved now. 🙂

    Speaking of, I’ve noticed that Windows doesn’t always want to go to sleep after a period of time. The fix? Usually to click somewhere on the desktop before leaving it. I think it’s just a side-effect of Windows being weird in general 😛

    Huh, weird about the Skyrim one. Glad…[Read more]

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Computer Setup in the forum Projects 1 month ago

    Yep, Windows works fine partly due it it having its own bootloader. Doesn’t hurt that it’s isolated on another drive, either 🙂

    Think I’ve got the live image flashed to the USB drive but I still need to test it before I pester support. Just been a bit tired the last few days 😛

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Family Trees in the forum Projects 1 month ago

    Lots of stuff involved in genealogy research! Not sure I would pick up on all the differences, honestly. 🙂

    Great!
