Galactapedia   This feature is expected to expand significantly in the coming weeks. We're excited about its potential and...

Happy Saturday, all. I was checking out stuff to bore you with, and found the English translation an article which originally appeared in German on pcwelt.de (as you can tell from the screenshots which as jpegs or pngs weren't translated) with all these sundry proggies to help you when and if. After all, there's nothing like having the right hammer for that stubborn screw.     The article is well organized : TABLE OF CONTENTS 1. Windows installation, updates, and...

    What is your favorite Jimmy Buffet song?
Generally speaking, in GalCiv games there has been three types of players: The first player is the relatively new or casual player who finds the AI ridiculously hard and will post "The AI is cheating" (the AI doesn't cheat unless you make the settings super high).  They say this because the AI is able to expand fairly quickly because it is quite good at scouting (the AI tends to build a lot more scouts than players) and finding planets. It has no idea where the planets are. The second...

Hi, folks. Meant to post this over the weekend, but other stuff came up and I forgot (hey, Giz made me a Charter Member of Club Al). So, here the tools are for your perusal:  https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-free-tools-fix-problem-windows-10/ Undoubtedly there are additional tools, and possibly better ones, but these are free and come recommended by MakeUseOf.com, a site that is pretty reliable, all in all. Feel free to add yours. There's also a link to antiviral/malware security sof...

Had a HDD go down a couple days ago and its been a pain. At first my windows installation went corrupt after it couldn't boot with that drive, but that was easily fixed with system restore. So I've been trying to fish the unbacked data off the failed drive and I'm still at it. The closest I came to mounting it in Linux was with Linux Puppy, but the files were read only and I couldn't copy them. Basically I don't care much about the drive, just the data on it. I was hoping I could fish the files ...

I use Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi and Maxthon browsers. Firefox works good, I like the way it updates and it is reliable. Vivaldi is the best fastest browser I have used and it has a lot of settings. Opera is the second fastest browser I have used. Maxthon is one I have been testing since June 2023. I like it so far and I have had no problems with it.

Today started with a bullet train ride to Hiroshima.  This was our second bullet train ride, and it's still pretty neat. Hiroshima though, as you can expect, was no laughing matter.  I don't have words to describe how depressing it was.  I'll just say that it was a really well done combination of museums and memorials.  They combined the science and details behind what happened with the human stories.  Near the end, there was a old man making paper cranes (Google paper c...

Today started with the Fushimi Inari-Taisha shrine.   Like the many shrines before it, it was neato spegetto.   I *think* that was first at least… I’m sitting here talking to my daughter about it now, and we can’t remember perfectly ๐Ÿ˜Š   A good portion of it was another indoor-take-your-shoes-off thing.   Was really cool though, because it has models of people in the different rooms in the Shogun’s house…. With descriptions of what the r...

Today started with a tour of the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest in Kyoto.  Before we even get started on the Bamboo forest though, Kyoto itself seems to be a really nice city.  The guide was saying that it was originally the capital of Japan.  I've got some of that story on video tape. Anyway, back to the bamboo forest.  My movie training was WAY off... every instinct I had told me that ninjas were just about to start flying through the tops of the bamboo... but it didn't happen...
