I really dislike how the year in review only has data for half of December.

For both the past two years I've gotten a game as an early Christmas present that I played so much in December it would have been pretty near the top of my list of most-played games of the year. But because I played them to death in the last half of December, where no data is collected/used for this, they barely make a blip on my Year in Review.

Caveblazers is free on GOG until January 5th.

That appears to be regional, A$1.19 until Jan 5 here.

Looks like the timer on the page mislead me and the giveaway was shorter! Now it shows as being $0.99 until January 5th for me.

Ultimate Zombie Defense is free on Fanatical for the next few days. (Redeems on Steam)

Train Simulator Classic: The Game of Gnomes DLC is free (and seems to include the base game? Or is a standalone DLC?) until January 4th.

And also it appears that Epic is doing a daily 24-hour giveaway for the next week or two. So be sure to check that out each day.

I just found out that Check My Deck has their own version of Steam's Year in Review, which they're calling Deckap 2023. Here's a link to mine:

General Software Discussion / Re: Undelete utilities - differences?
« on: December 14, 2023, 04:44 AM »

The query was prompted by talking to someone who couldn't get her photos off an SD card.  She'd been constantly re-using the card that came with the camera, and hadn't copied any of the files off it for quite a while.  When she did try, neither she nor her husband could retrieve anything, it looked like everything had been deleted.  At that point I thought of undelete utilities, as a hedge against problems. In their case the problem was worse, and probably insurmountable, as both their computers eventually said the card was corrupted.  I'd guess that even forensic IT might struggle to get anything useful from a corrupted card.  There's a moral in there somewhere...


That sounds like it could be a fake SD card. Where it's actually got very small storage but the vendor/scammer changed the firmware so it reports that it's very large. You can write all you want to it but it's constantly overwriting the data, which probably uses up the write cycles of the flash memory pretty quickly.

These days you should always test flash cards you buy online to verify they are the advertised capacity. You can use a utility like f3 (Fight Fake Flash, or Fight Flash Fraud) to do so.

My answer hasn't changed since the last time you asked this question:

Yes, Discord is a chat-like app. It is kind of like IRC, but more akin to Slack, which, in addition to the typical text chat, has voice chat, screen sharing, channels, forums, and more.

Here's a link to the DonationCoder Discord that should work for the next 7 days:

Wow. Looks nice.

To clarify: I wasn't suggesting that you use Brave. I was just stating that if my instructions differed to what you saw in Chrome, it was because I was using Brave, but they should be pretty similar since Brave is based on Chrome.

I'm not sure I understand your needs. If you just want to backup your bookmarks and restore them to another machine, what's wrong with the built-in export/import options?

I'm pretty sure Chrome allows you to backup and sync your bookmarks across your Google account if you login to the browser itself.

Or you can also do it manually. I use Brave, which is based on Chrome, so it should be something like this:

  • To export: Press Ctrl-Shift-O to open the built-in Bookmarks Manager ( chrome://bookmarks/ ). Then click the three-dots menu and select Export bookmarks.
  • To import: Click the hamburger menu and go to Bookmarks, then select Import bookmarks and settings (which should take you here: chrome://settings/importData ), then select Bookmarks HTML File from the dropdown list, and select the file containing your exported bookmarks.

This was announced by Microsoft quite some time ago, but I just learned that Windows 10's lifecycle is scheduled to end in October 2025 and that 22H2 is the final version of Windows 10.
