@256 It was awesome tool back in the day, before WinDirStat replaced it.

@andabata I'd say it's the "good" magic smoke ;)

By now it's probably mostly forgotten fact, but if you're in for some 16-color 32x32 .ICO nostalgia, the Moricons.dll is still available even in Windows 10 (not sure about 11). Look for it at %SystemRoot%\System32\moricons.dll.

EDIT: @SkySorcerer confirmed it's present also on Win11

@jlsksr There's also 8000 icons CD there :D

Feels weird to run #AshesOfTheSingularity for the first time on my RTX 4070 just now, several months after I bought that GPU. CPU limits it to 70FPS but at least finally I can run it on "Crazy" (highest) preset on 2560x1440 res and it's not a stopmotion movie like it used to be on GTX 1660TI (and 1920x1080 res). And it looks just spectacular, too... #PCgaming #PCMasterRace

Seriously, who thought using just password to login and allowing just one session to be active is a good idea?
All it takes is reconfiguration of Wifi adapter to get you locked out of your router config webpage for who-knows-how-long (or force you to reboot it).

You know what would be cool? Having private notes on profiles. That way when I block someone, a year from now on I could quickly recall why I blocked someone.

EDIT: turns out it's there already 🤦‍♂️

What computer will still be able to run in 100 years? I mean, if the chip factories stopped churnin out chips and we had to get by with the current stock, is there any limiting factor?

sort [..] | uniq -> sort -u [..]
find . [..] | xargs [..] | grep [..] -> grep -r [..]
grep [..] | wc -l -> grep -c

The list goes on and on...

In other words, stop gaining knowledge from and , use manuals instead - because those contain a lot of useful info that will make your scripts more performant.

This is your friendly reminder that I make and sell delightful miniature retrocomputers like TRS-80s, Osborne Ones, and the occasional big friends like Connection Machines and Crays.
I'm a retired nerd who's living the dream. Well, if your dream is working in your garage on tiny art machines. 😺 ⚙️

Ciekawym skutkiem ubocznym jest to, że drastycznie spadł ruch samochodowy do i z , a przynajmniej od północnowschodniej strony. Mimo że jest zwężenie z trzech do jednego pasa z jednej strony Sobieskiego i zablokowany pas z drugiej, to do pracy dojechałem tak samo "wolno" jak w normalny dzień roboczy, za to wracałem już jak w ferie czy inne wakacje (tj. szybko).

Można więc powiedzieć, że dzięki chimskiemu gackowi i home office, strajk rolników przyniósł skutki odwrotne do zamierzonych bo ci co mogli to się wycwanili i po prostu pracowali z domu.

So, a TV (already LED but not quite "Smart") has ability to disable the screen so you can hear audio from TV station while not watching it and don't wear the screen down (and pay for wasted power). Great. But... There's NO WAY to disable the screen when playing media off USB. That option is there but it's "unavailable".

My use case? Listen to some hour-long podcast from USB stick while laying on my couch. Impossible on this TV because some braindead management/development decision.

Trochę się odkorkowałem życiowo i mogłem się zająć - przede wszytkim poprawiłem kilka irytujących bugów, np. losowe zawieszanie się podczas czytania wiadomości HTML, ale też dodałem możliwość automatycznego zamykania osobnego okna wiadomości po wysłaniu/umieszczeniu w kolejce wysyłkowej odpowiedzi/forwardu na tę wiadomość.
Wkrótce więcej zmian. :)

just mailed me apologies and 3-month voucher for charging me for my object storage bucket in December. Turns out they intended to notify me upfront but somehow their mailing tools missed me so I didn't get the upfront notification.

could learn something from them.

I went for 45-minute "endurance" running program on my treadmill after a month of not running or working out at all. I feel like I made a mistake.
