Yeah, yeah, yeah. And a sea anchor for a lightweight dingy.
So, no use at all, then, eh?

I guess it could be useful for a home media center if you got rid of whatever Crapple OS it runs...then install Linux instead...use it for storing movies or whatever on it, connected up to your main home TV?

I have been given an unwanted 1st generation Mac Mini with the DVI graphics port:
 (see attachment in previous post)
I got this and other pix from Wikipedia - Mac Mini .
The question is. What good use could I put this device to, or is only good for scrap?



Doorstop?

I understand your request but the video should be self explanatory, isn't it?

"A touching and awesome movie" is not really any sort of explanation of what I am about to watch...just feels like Clickbait.

If you need a hand learning how to attach the file into a thread and give a download link, then let me know and I will do my best to talk you through it.

If you feel answers are coming through a little slowly, then you can pop into our Chat Room where somebody will be able to assist. (Sometimes you may have to wait a little while if nobody is answering as we might all be away from or keyboards!) cheesy

Thanks, Tao. That sounds like a good question to put in the appropriate forum.

I have replied to the question you asked in the "Help" forum.

If your software is 8MB or less, you can upload using the "Attach File" option at the bottom of the "New Topic" screen. (I can walk you through this if required).

If the download is more than 8MB then please let me know so we can arrange suitable hosting for you.

Thanks.

Actually, we put our own wallpaper on our builds, and I am creating a program to facilitate that process as well. That one will come later on, and will probably be another program that I would add to DonationCoder.

(Pick OS, Pick color, though I only ever use black or deep blue.)

3 Clicks seems a bit excessive for such a simple task....why not just open the EXE and it would do it all for you? tongue

Tomos, that is the exact page that the OEM info appears on (right-click My Computer, go to Properties).

No, it does not appear on the desktop, where it definitely might be annoying as all hell  Cry Angry

I don't think anybody in the world would care if an OEM installer put their own wallpaper on the computers in question...seeing as that can be changed really easily...

Well, Warehouse 13 was campy fun, but it has ended! : (

And SyFy TV grade C movies don't count - they're one offs and always there.

But I did do a marathon of Eureka this summer. Fun little show!

From what I understand, the reason Eureka got cancelled was due to a dispute from the main cast over what they should be paid.  Stupid reason to can a show that was so good though Sad

Well, if it's anything like the last season of House MD, it's not so stupid to the actors! Very badly paraphrasing from what I read elsewhere, the show producers said, "we want to 'cut costs'. So let's pay you gang *less* than we paid you last season!"

As I understand it, that's the chief reason Lisa Edelstein / Cuddy left, along with a couple of others.



Yeah, to me it doesn't make sense to try pay the actors LESS than the previous seasons when the show is gaining in popularity and bringing in LOADS of money for the station.

I watched it sporadically. (GF was a big fan.) But she felt it sort of went off the deep end the last season. Said she didn't much care for it once that space travel project got underway.

Liked what little I saw. Especially scenes with Felicia Day in them. Too bad they didn't give her and Allison. Scagliotti from WH13 their own show. Maybe the promised but never delivered WH12 which was to be set in the Victorian Age. Make them the top two agents. Bring back Jamie Murray ("HG") as the conservator-in-charge...
 Wink

I must admit, the Space Program for me was a really good story-line for me.  I agree Season 5 kinda went downhill and you could really feel they tried to end the show really quickly...but the end of it pissed me off hugely as it was left WIDE open (Although I won't explain how here as I wouldn't wanna give spoilers to anybody who wants to watch and didn't yet) smiley

Quote from: Wikipedia
Eureka is an American science fiction television series that premiered on Syfy on July 18, 2006. The fifth and final season ended on July 16, 2012. The show is set in a fictional town in Oregon called Eureka (although, in the pilot episode, Eureka was located in Washington State). Inhabited almost entirely by scientific geniuses, most residents of Eureka work for Global Dynamics - an advanced research facility responsible for the development of nearly all major technological breakthroughs since its inception. Each episode features a mysterious accidental or intentional misuse of technology, which the town sheriff, Jack Carter, then solves with the help of town scientists. Each season also features a larger story arc that concerns a particular major event or item.


I honestly LOVED this show, and watched all 5 seasons around 6 times each...It never got old and I still hate the fact it got cancelled and yet the SyFy network still play crap like Sharknado and Warehouse 13 Sad

One of the best TV Sci-Fi shows ever created as far as I am concerned.  Anybody else watch and fall in love with the show?

Researchers from the University of Washington in the US have managed to non-invasively link-up two people’s brains and allowed them to communicate without speaking.

This is the second time they’ve succeeded in creating this brain-to-brain communication, one year after they first showed it was possible, and it brings the ability closer to real-world applications.

The new study involved six people put into pairs. In the experiment, the researchers successfully transmitted the signals from one person’s brain over the internet and used them to control the hand movements of their partner, who was 800 metres away, within a split second. Their results are published in PLOS ONE.

"The new study brings our brain-to-brain interfacing paradigm from an initial demonstration to something that is closer to a deliverable technology," said co-author Andrea Stocco, professor of psychology from the University of Washington, in a press release. "Now we have replicated our methods and know that they can work reliably with walk-in participants."

When someone is experiencing cardiac arrest, the time taken to receive treatment is often the deciding factor between life and death. Public defibrillators are becoming increasingly common, but if you're untrained, they can be tricky to operate properly, plus they're not widespread enough to service all cardiac arrest patients. So an engineering student from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands has proposed a solution - an ambulance drone that can fly a defibrillator to the patient within a fraction of the time it takes emergency services to arrive.
The ambulance drone is a hexacopter that can travel to a location within 12 square kilometres in about a minute. According to Alec Momont, the designer of the drone, this quick response can increase a heart attack patient’s chances of survival tenfold.
When a patient has a heart attack and an emergency call is placed, the drone is able to track the location of the call using an in-built GPS for navigation, and fly there at a speed of 100 kilometres per hour. Upon landing, an operator tunes in like a paramedic, giving instructions to someone nearby on how to use the defibrillator to treat the patient. The drone also has an in-built camera that allows the operator to ensure the defibrillator is being used correctly.

The icon highlighted above was pinned to my Taskbar, and now it won't go away.  I uninstalled the game after I pinned it and now it has no right click options so I can't do anything o.O

I can move/drag the icon along the taskbar but am lost when it comes to working out how to delete it and Google has failed me!

Windows 8.1 is my OS.

Anybody any clues how to delete it?  tellme

what is the limitation of today's GPS technology and we can't position someone/something within let's say a meter accuracy?

While government/military systems can thread a needle from space, they don't think the civilian riff-raff need that sort of pin point accuracy ... Hence we don't get access to it.

...It really is just that simple.
