  1. There's another BIG problem with TVs as well that is the part where the upscaler is not programmed to deal with 240p.
    The "TV standard" is that you send 240 lines, 60 times per second, and those lines are either ODD or EVEN, as in you send line 1, 3, 5, 7 then on the next frame its line 2,4,6,8...
    But old consoles don't do that, they send just the same field over and over, while keeping the other field black, and this works fine on CRTs as you get twice as bright lines etc…
    So ideally, the televisions should detect when this is being done and either keep one of the fields as black lines or double the lines, but instead they try to force the picture to be 480i and you get awful artifacts like the combing

  2. Those extra pins don't seem to be helping Intel any, that's for sure.

  3. Choose the console with the exclusive games and features you want. Performance won’t be that different.

  4. "We've went from 32nm to half that (14nm) in ten years"... yeah and if we also count AMD, half that again ;)

  5. Finally, my PC has the power to save lives

  6. Most of the GTK themes are created mainly for Gnome, that's why some of the GTK themes does not look as good as it should be. There are very few themes designed specifically to Cinnamon, some of them are quite dated.

    You've found a good amount of them that are acceptable and not quite old. Some themes doesn't cover the whole system, just parts of it. The same is happens to LXQt, LXDE, Xfce and MATE. Complete and new themes are missing for Cinnamon, or there are very few of them available when compared to Gnome or KDE Plasma.

    Sometimes you find the controls, icons and mouse pointer themes, but the theme lacks desktop and window borders. Finding a theme that applies to all and covers everything is rare, except by original Cinnamon's themes (Cinnamon Spices) you can download on Add/Remove section of the Themes settings.

  7. I haven't been using KDE since version 3.5. I think its time to check it out once again.

  8. Linux 5.6 is getting Wireguard and Linux 5.7 will be getting exfat. Cool!

  9. I would also add XRumer to the list of useless tools

  10. Does Charging Dock support the iphone x 7.5w fast charging?
