      We have a new theme created by Vincent that's now available to everyone. It has been set as the default theme, so everyone should see it when you refresh the page. If you still aren't seeing it, you can select it from the Theme drop-down at the bottom of the page. It's called Assimilation. Thanks Vincent. Awesome looking theme!

    I hate salesmen: "See how beautiful that screen is compared to the other? That's because it has a better CPU!" Seriously...?
  3. The Mines of DS (AKA Minecraft and its clones)

    Okay, so I bought real Minecraft last week and I think the map generator got drunk:
  4. The Mines of DS (AKA Minecraft and its clones)

    I've been playing Minetest lately, which is a clone of Minecraft but with some tweaks and differences. Here are some images from my first world: As you can see, it's pretty basic. That's from when I was just playing about. I'll continue in the next post. Stand by.
  5. [HowTo] Add Images to Posts

    Uh, question: how do you add a thumbnail to the post in the new version? They changed the UI in the gallery and I can only figure out how to directly embed images. Edit: So you just post the link now? Is there a more user friendly way of doing it? I don't always want the link to auto-embed itself.

  7. Games on Sale

    GOG has kicked off its Winter sale along with more free games. This time, they're giving away Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics for the next 48 hours.For reference, their site is here: http://www.gog.com/Their servers are currently being hammered so you may have issues getting in for a bit.
  8. Recipes

    So here's an easy: Broiled carrots and bok choy: Season as desired and then broil on high for ten minutes to get them nice and crispy followed by broiling on low for ten minutes to let the juice come on out. Turns out brilliantly!
  9. Recipes

    I feel like sharing my recipe for stew.Now, I use venison since I've got a freezer full of it but just about any meat will work. None of my measurements are hard numbers, they're all guesswork. :PYou grab your meat, toss it into a pot. Take your broth (I use beef) and fill up the pot just enough so that the meat is covered. Take some flour (about two palmfuls (that is, enough to fill the opening when you cup your hand)) and toss it into the post. Then you get a large onion and cut it up. Not into tiny pieces but the pieces are about an inch across. Toss them into the pot.The seasonings are all based on taste so the amount can vary but the types of seasonings I use have gotten good results consistently.Grab some steak sauce and pour into the pot. Same with Worcestershire sauce.Add some parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage, lemon pepper, Everglades seasoning, and basil to the mixture (around a teaspoon of each).I use two whole cloves and two bay leaves as well.Then you let it cook all day long. I personally use a crock pot for the task.About 2 - 3 hours before I take it off, I toss in some corn (if I've got any), some peas, and carrots. Along with some gnocchi. Sometimes, I'll use standard potatoes. If I do, I toss them in in the morning with the rest of the mixture.Just thought I'd share that.

    He should go back to the nut sorting room! The squirrels would enjoy the company! That version of the film was weird.

    Nabbed, thanks!
  12. Tech Advice and Stuffz

    I need some advice here so I figured I'd throw this thread up to help hold future questions and stuff. :)Anyways, I need to get myself a cable modem and I have no idea what to look for. No wireless features are needed, I'll be plugging in a coax cable from the wall into the modem and then an Ethernet cable into the modem and, from there, to my computer.

    It's definitely more complicated than just a single black hole since you need to factor in the dark matter, all the planets, surrounding galaxies...Yeah, it gets hairy. So let's just go with Steve!
  14. Tech Advice and Stuffz

    They're handy to keep around in case something goes bad.

    Technically, all the systems in a galaxy are moons of the super massive black holes at the center. Or Steve.
  16. Random Stuffz

    Aren't we all just moons of the Sun, though?
  17. What are you listening to right now?

    Their newer stuff isn't as good (they lost a member who wanted to try something new but they still perform together) but I like all their stuff. I find it an amazing blend.
  18. What are you listening to right now?

    We're missing this little gem... The idea is pretty simple: you post what you're listening to, be it a song, sound effect, the ancient Pharaohs putting a curse on you. You get the idea. To start: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf8aBFTVNEU
  19. Tech Advice and Stuffz

    It's best to get all the same model with RAM, not just brand, as motherboards can be picky if the RAM sticks don't match.

    But Mercury is tiny and it's considered a planet!
  21. Tech Advice and Stuffz

    Not exactly. Android uses a different way of running programs using a built-in JVM implementation with JNI support. However, if Android is replaced with a full Linux distribution, then regular programs can be run (including Android programs using the Android development suite (there's also an experimental compatibility layer somewhere)) but they'd need to have been compiled for the architecture of the CPU (usually ARM for mobile devices but there are some using x86).
  22. Windows 10

    The Kate editor works well on Windows if you want to try a good replacement.
  23. Movie Quote Game

    That was a film...?

  25. Windows 10

    Ugh, what a mess! Could be related to the W10 update a week or two ago. Maybe the Notepad++ folks haven't gotten to releasing an updated version yet?
