    Yeah, novelty applications that manipulate the entire desktop (or appear to) are as old as the hills.

    Here's a firsthand report from someone you know - yes, it totally does happen, I've observed it with family members who own smartphones multiple times. Whether it's conspiracy or coincidence, I...

    I got mine in the mail late last week, but I haven't had a chance to test it yet. Hopefully sometime soon I can get KQIV loaded up on my 1000RL... ;)

    I'm being reminded of all the things I just don't have to worry about driving a '69 Volkswagen... :lol:

    The answer to "anybody else using Microsoft Edge?" by this point is such a conclusive "no" that even MS is giving up on it.

    It is kinda surprising to me how relatively under-represented the 68k is in the homebrew community compared to, say, the 6502 or Z80. I suppose that's just down to the relative complexity of...

    Now I'm trying to remember if Chuck has ever introduced us to his synthesizers. Funny how many people in this community have an interest in electronic music.

    NASM doesn't run on less than a 386, but if you're not dead-set on developing 100% on the vintage hardware, it's fully capable of cross-assembling 8086 or 286 code.

    It continually boggles me that people still try to use Bluetooth for things. It's never worked satisfactorily, from the very beginning to the present day. If modern consumers weren't so...

    From some of the settings on there, I'd hazard a guess that it's some kind of memory-tester device.

    The perspective in the photo is pretty funny :lol: But you can tell from the other photos that show standard-sized components like the CD-ROM drive that it's about the size of a small fridge.
