Would you mind to name five of those hundreds of problems?

Opinion: It's Time To Ditch 2.4GHz WI-FI

2.4GHz wifi is not suitable for two big reasons, interference and low bandwidth. 2.4GHz wifi in any kind of suburban or city environment and sometimes even in rural will be congested with other networks, microwaves, other appliances, etc causing massive speed degradation or fluctuations. The range of 2.4GHz is just too large for...

There are bricks of various kinds, and they can very well be challenging for Wifi. Concrete is even harder, and if you have reinforced concrete, good luck.

But Linux is a registered trademark, too.

Gesamtwert laut anderen Artikeln: 554 Euro. Also 3 Euro das Kilo. Definitiv eher Scheibletten als Parmesan.

Snutt explains that in the video even. They will enter (closed) beta soon.

When I first learned about Satisfactory, I thought this would just be Factorio with the unnecessary complication of adding 3D. But I got it through a bundle at some point, so I playtested it a bit (not much, just 200 hours) and then decided to put it away until 1.0 is released (as I really want to see the full experience before I'm done with the game). Since then, I tried every single game (I swear!) where you could build kind of a base in 3D freely, and nowhere saw a building experience that came close to Satisfactory. Not all is perfect there, for example I think it really should have terraforming, so not every little rock could block you from building your megafactory, but anyway, I'm counting days for when I can start building in Satisfactory again.

And it won't go into production next year. But workers will still be treated like shit.

If you don't want to communicate with non-Signal users and are always within range of a public or known Wifi network where ever you are in Afghanistan, then I guess this is fine.

And that's actually an argument against buying this monitor, as long as you want to play any games with it. They have reason to ban you just for using this monitor. So in the end you have the choice between one monitor that could get you banned and all the others that don't. I know which one I wouldn't choose.

That's the point of banning by hardware ID.

In Germany and Austria, there was a tax on salt for cooking until recently (1993 and 1995, respectively). To avoid that people buy the cheap road salt and use it for cooking, such a bitter component was actually added, usually magnesium chloride (sometimes also capsaicin).
Many German sources still say you shouldn't eat road salt for that reason, so maybe this is still done (though it is of course possible, that those sources are just outdated).

Scott E. Fahlman proposed using :-) and :-( to mark jokes and not-jokes respectively in internet posts in 1982, and they (and lots of variations) have been in use ever since. IBM's Codepage 437 character set (as used by the original PC) had two dedicated smiley characters even before that.
There was no golden age of the internet where there were no emoticons.

US is probably the only country that went back on rail transport. Every other country is taking it as far as they possibly can.

I don't know for other countries, but Germany (that has a decent high-speed rail network, to be fair) had a rail network of almost 55,000 km in the 50s and less than 40,000 today. More than 300 train stations have been closed since the year 2000 alone.

Come on, almost two thirds of DB Fernverkehr's trains are punctual (if you accept DB's definition of punctuality, which allows six minutes of delay to still be counted as punctual).

But incorrectly quoted as "Microsoft promised...". It was one low-tier Microsoft employee who said it once, in a side note of a conference talk that was not about the future of Windows.

Windows 11 officially requires Secure Boot and TPM 2.0, but can easily be run with just TPM 1.2, and with some effort even without TPM. All the other system requirement increases (like single to dual core, 2 to 4 GB RAM, etc.) don't really play a role for any recently built PC anyway.

A developer evangelist is not a press person, but a developer that gives talks to other developers. I didn't find any specific numbers, but Microsoft probably has hundreds of them. And anyway you wouldn't expect that kind of announcement to be made by anyone who isn't like C-level, in a presentation made specifically for that fact, accompanied by a big marketing campaign, and so on.

Besides, if you want to win a complex court case, it certainly helps to have more than a few million dollars, so you can hire more of the best lawyers and let them prepare for longer time. But at some point, more money gets useless, and the stock value of your company isn't even money that you could spend on anything.

Born in the early 80s, the 90s been my youth. Reading through the comments here I realize there's nothing I miss from the 90s. Every single thing mentioned here has either been replaced by something better, or isn't gone in the first place.

Well, e-bikes are bicycles, too.

Bicycle means two wheels, so a motorbike technically is a bicycle, too.
But e-bikes are closer to non-e-bikes than to motorcycles in terms of components, looks and propulsion.

If you're talking about specific models, sure. But if you ask a group of people "Who's here by bicycle today?" the ones that came with an e-bike would raise their hands, too.

It wants a code for level selection. You get the code for level 2 once you finish level 1, and so on. So just start with level 1 (F1).

Of the current 16 games, 11 are shareware/demos. Only Beneath a Steel Sky, One Must Fall 2097, The Black Cauldron, The Lost Vikins and Supaplex are full versions (as those games have been released to public domain at one point).
