Hellpoint is free for the next ~42 hours:

I haven't played it, but it looks like a mix of Lovecraftian horror, sci-fi, and Dark Souls. It also features co-op.

I've also used SWF File Player with some success in the past.

I kind of like the idea of having a more decentralized, mesh-style network for everyone to have access to the internet and reduce the chance of a single point of failure preventing you from being online. But IMO it needs to be an open standard and not tied to any one hardware or software company.

In my mind, a mesh network combined with something like IPFS would be amazing!

But yeah, I'm pretty leery about big companies trying to sneak in ways for their hardware or software to get a free ride off of my infrastructure to provide "better service" to their other customers. It reminds me of Windows 10 essentially making everyone's PC a BitTorrent client (or whatever) to help spread Windows Updates around the internet.

I might be more likely to be a bit altruistic and share my resources for things like this, even if there was no real benefit to myself, but for the time being it's an automatic no-go for me if for no other reason than because data caps are still a thing, so I can't allow freeloaders to use up my limited resource. :(

1. Being "pre-paid", I'm assuming that your "credit limit" would be controlled by you current CDC holdings. So how is that "paid" at the end of the (monthly?) cycle. Do you tell it which coin to  take from, or does it automatically pick and withdraw it?
-Stoic Joker (May 29, 2021, 09:26 AM)

The card itself has a separate balance from the rest of your account. So you manually load money onto it using whatever form of currency you choose. Once it's on the card, it's all USD (or your local fiat currency, probably). I don't know what happens if there's not a large enough balance to cover the transaction, since I've never had that happen.

There might also be an option to "auto-buy" or auto-load money onto the card each month, but if there is, I haven't looked for it. I prefer to manage it manually.

2. If using it for Amazon subscription, will it also (100% reimburse) movie rentals done with the AP account, or only the base subscription fee?
-Stoic Joker (May 29, 2021, 09:26 AM)

I doubt it. I don't have enough money in my account for the Amazon reimbursement, but I'm pretty sure it's just the base subscription fee for Amazon Prime.

Not to rain on your parade, but I thought the second was heralding a weather report.

What a downer. I prefer your usual sunny disposition.

Samorost 1 is now on GOG, and is currently free. I'm not sure if it is permanently free or if it's a limited time promotion.

I had some ideas I wanted to script to read the .checklist files - I just wondered what the first column (seemingly just 0?) on each line pertains to?

If I had to guess, I'd say it's whether or not the item is checked. 0 for false (or not checked) and 1 for true (or checked).

I was present when this random discussion about a nursery rhyme occurred, and I thought it was so funny I had to share. You know the rhyme:

This little piggy went to the market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef.
This little piggy had none.
This little piggy went wee-wee-wee all the way home.

Alice: "I've heard that's a commentary on capitalism vs. communism."
Bob: "So they're communist pigs?"
Alice: "Yep."
Bob: "Which one is Napoleon?" (Referring to George Orwell's Animal Farm.)
Alice: "The one that says oui oui oui!"

@Deozaan would this count?

I think that would make you a bloody souffle. ;)

all the drama around freenode today and the mass exodus

Where can we learn more about this?

that video, is that made from your pc or other competitor?

Each video is of a different person working on the same game as a team. The one labeled "Deozaan's LD48 Timelapse" was made using screenshots of my PC while I worked on the game. The one labeled "Roidz's LD48 Timelapse" was made using screenshots of my teammate's PC while he worked on the game.

Why does everyone seem to rip on WinRAR?!?

I've been using it for years, and never had a problem with it.
-Stoic Joker (May 04, 2021, 02:22 PM)

I don't think the joke is that WinRAR is bad software. I think the joke is that everybody uses (or has used) it, but nobody has purchased a license.

We made a game called Let's Go Deeper.

I'll be working on creating "pretty" artwork and screenshots to make the game page(s) look nicer over the next few days. Right now it's fairly barebones looking. And I'll also be creating the usual timelapse videos and will post them here with more stats when they're ready.

Post New Requests Here / Re: Show Center of monitor screen
« on: April 21, 2021, 02:06 AM »
But Deozaan made me realize that the taskbar can make a difference? However, I have never had the need for the precise vertical spot, merely the horizontal (width) one. So I am GUESSING that the taskbar that Deozaan is mentioning, not is the problem; I was only talking about the spot being too far to the right. I have not even checked if the displayed spot is too high up or what. Edited: I have Taskbar > AutoHide

I think you are correct that my guess was unrelated to your issue after all.

FYI the taskbar is not part of the desktop client area. Normal apps center on desktop, so their centering is correct.
You can write code to get around that issue for people who use a ruler to notice that at all  :P

My problem was that I was trying to use OBS to capture a 1920x1080 portion in the center of my 2560x1400 monitor. So I used DisplayFusion and set up a hotkey to resize the current window to 1920x1080 and place it in the center of the screen. Where the window ended up and where OBS recorded on my monitor were not aligned (vertically, as Curt correctly surmised). I found that by setting my taskbar to auto-hide, DisplayFusion began placing the window in the same location that OBS was recording.

It begins in less than 72 hours, and currently all 3 rounds of theme voting are currently open. Though I imagine they'll end soon and it will be time for the final round of voting.

No wonder the hero is an assassin!  Having a single syllable for both first and last name must generate anger management issues.  :)

I suspect that the only problem John Doe has with his name is that people often confuse him with someone else.

The app is not doing its job properly on my 1920x1080: The cross comes up half a centimer off center! -even with no apps open.

Without knowing the full details, my guess is that it has to do with the taskbar always being displayed by default.

I recently encountered a similar issue where an app I use (DisplayFusion) wasn't properly centering windows on my monitor and I found that by setting my taskbar to hide then it would center them properly.

What I can not say is for example how my app react within the one hour thread.
Like, start app, put pc to sleep / disconnect Audio device, wake up Pc and attach Audio (all within one hour)
If it break the chain to the thread (and recheck after 30sec again and again) or if it will dumb do its one hour task to then recognize "hey, no more device, lets wait 30sec to retry"...

Just reporting that after having my PC sleep overnight it took approximately 1 hour before kzToneGen recovered and started playing sound again.
