    Scary YouTube Changes?

    From the ToS: The latest news I've heard is that it's a disclaimer stating that it can disable YouTube or specific parts of the service, e.g. YouTube Music. That does seem more likely, but YouTube still being a brick wall doesn't help any of this. Also, IIRC, this has already been a thing in the EEA for a couple of months.

    Videochat November 2019

    ed is a text editor predating monitors (people used teleprinters back then), so it's very obtuse. I guess you could compare using it to wandering in the dark only being able to see what's right in front of you. Anyway, this is a great conversation, but it is getting massively off-topic.

    Ed is the standard text editor.

    Videochat November 2019

    That scenario was imagining someone who really is a total newbie with not much experience to warrant the use of Windows apps, so I wouldn't imagine that to be much of an issue anyway. I do agree with your sentiment on the decentralised nature of Linux being a detriment for mass adoption. It's not really an OS per se, there's a whole community with its schisms and what-not. Someone new to computers definitely isn't going to install a distribution all by themselves, it's usually a tech-savvy relative helping out.

    My Kind of Retro Rig (2004)

    Be careful, there are spambots on the loose! (Just checked and the one you replied to was one.)

    Videochat November 2019

    I actually think that both user groups you mentioned can be satisfied with Linux. A newbie (like your grandma) can have a great time on a user-friendly distro (e.g. Linux Mint, elementary OS) doing basic things like web surfing or using office applications; in fact, I'd go so far as to say that they'd have a better time using Linux. The actual people having problems with Linux are power users that already have everything figured out on Windows (like Ross). They're going to have a hard time because a lot of the more complicated use cases require more hoops to jump through on Linux or simply aren't documented well. I'm not saying this is a non-issue—it definitely is one—, but it's a different thing altogether.

    I think it's completely fine at its original RPM, but the "audio strobe" part at the end might be too much for some. If you want more not-so-listenable but still good music, there's this: (I prefer Cap.IV off the same EP, but that doesn't have the nice video. Autechre is also great in general, I can easily recommend most of their music—even the eight hours they released last year.) And this as well: Some other music I like (also being overdue on my homework): Finally released after 21 YEARS Really great sound, especially in their live performances. (R.I.P. Kõmmari)

    Great episode, very succinct. I would really like to see a drawing of that in action.
  10. @RaTcHeT302: The site is open-sourced on Github, so it is entirely possible to host it locally! (Although for technical reasons, you have to go to a previous revision of the repo for the model data.)

    Questions for Videochat October 2019

    @ramipastrami, @XxZARxX: please ask those questions in the Reddit thread. I'll be locking this thread to prevent any further confusion.

    The Crew Extra Videos

    Due to popular demand, I'm releasing a couple more clips related to the last Game Dungeon episode. The first is for an extra-high quality copy (the same version I uploaded to Youtube) of the episode. Due to this episode having lots of fast motion and high details, it compressed very poorly compared to pretty much every other episode. To put it in perspective, I used even higher quality compression settings than this on A New Beginning, and that was 1/20th the size this one was. So for people who are frustrated by the compression, here's a downloadable version that has minimal artifacting: Ross's Game Dungeon: The Crew (x264 9.44GB MKV) This is meant for personal viewing only. Please do not upload copies of this to Youtube or other streaming networks. However, as with all my videos, Fair Use purposes (reviews, parodies, derivative works, etc.) are of course fine. The other request I received was for the green screen footage of my driving segment in the video. These were not made under ideal conditions. I had time pressure and had to record this in my currently evacuated room. You'll see some shadowing that isn't helpful, but people can monkey with it if they want. I've included 3 takes of the shot. Green screen driving video (x264 44MB MP4) Unlike the Game Dungeon episode itself, you can use this clip for anything you want, no restrictions. I'm not necessarily saying you SHOULD, but I don't have a problem with it being used for whatever. This is a blog post. To read the original post, please click here »

    Familar Face in Captain D's Video

    It was just a Twitter reply. Video for context: The video itself is great, Captain Disillusion is definitely one of the best creators on Youtube.

    Also a spammer.

    @Rus.T: The button is on the right, like this: @sheridanm962: Having a follow buttton for each genre isn't really possible, since technically, they're all in the same category (the filtering is done dynamically on page load). At least one person has requested an RSS feed, though, and it's not that hard to add one.

    GOG Winter Games Thing 2

    Yeah, no, it's just a spambot going off keywords. I would recommend people search the username off a forum spam blacklist (like Stop Forum Spam) if they're not sure about it.

    After a lot of people requesting it, the game list now has comments!

    You already can, Sort By→Ross's Rating. This is a pretty commonly asked question, does anyone have ideas for making this more obvious?

    Sort By→Ross's Rating should do it for the moment. We did have buttons for the ratings, but Ross decided against it since the vast majority aren't rated.

    Game List - Sort by Comments

    It's more dummied out, really. I'll see if I can get it disabled.
  22. ekket


    Yeah, you can search across the whole site but you can also search for games only (specifying the content type); I personally think that having another searchbar that serves the same purpose is a little redundant. EDIT: Perhaps it could be made more obvious, but I don't have any good ideas for that.

    There is a search feature, in the top right corner of the website.

    Game List - "Random" button not working correctly

    All of that should be fixed now, thanks for letting me know.

    It seems like there's enough material for a follow-up episode already (the next episode is also a follow-up, pretty good coincidence there).
