YT blocking ad blockers.

9th October 2023

I don't mind ads so much. What I don't like is how YouTube tends to pop up an ad at the worst times, and when the ad ends, often 5 or 6 seconds of the video are skipped. Fortunately, on my laptop, my ad-blocker is still working for now.

Vinyl or Gif?

21st August 2023

When it comes to vinyl, many of my CDs are experiencing CD rot, many of my cassettes are degrading (making a weird squealing noise), streaming lasts as long as the site is in service, and digital downloads last as long as your HD doesn't crash, but all*snip*

A few years ago, I went through all my old music. Many of my cassette tapes have degraded, many of my CDs started ''rotting,'' all my vinyl still sound as good as they did when I last played them. Who would've thought all those years ago, th*snip*

Bluetooth Won't aGo Go

2nd August 2023

Just had a similar problem myself. My laptop wouldn't connect with Bluetooth (wouldn't even see the hardware on the motherboard), even though it never had problems before. A bit of Googling and come to find out a Windows update killed it. Tried *snip*

Mice: MS vs Logitech

5th July 2023

I have a Logitech mouse for my desktop, and a small MS mouse for when the touchpad on my laptop isn't good enough. I would say that they both have worked equally well, but now you mention it, I have gone through 4 MS mice (2 on my desktop before buyin*snip*

Looks like this game does get more challenging as it goes on. The sewer level is quite creepy.

Stray - The Game

16th February 2023

So far the game seems pretty much on rails. A couple of spots I am able to do a bit more exploring, but overall pretty linear. The challenges are not that tough either. Would be a perfect game for someone younger (purrrrfect?). Think along the lines of *snip*

Seen The Hunger Games and hated it. Liked the books, but the movies were terrible. Never seen The Maze Runners. If you want to see the original which The Hunger Games blatantly ripped off, you should check out Battle Royale.

Ceil Goes Up

Ceil() takes the value to the closest higher integer, so Ceil(-12.5) would be -12, not -13, as -12 is higher than -12.5.
