ok mate. I tried it (Lutris).

I have to give it to you, it's pretty neat. I like that i can just look up the game on their website, click a button, and have all the dependencies and settings installed.

I just need to learn how to get the games I already own into the library manger.

Didn't work for me. Installed a game but it wouldn't show up in my library. Might have to try again when it's more mature. Right now native Loonix and "just works" in wine games are doing what I need.

Oh yeah, same thing happened for me on the first installed game. The library was blank, so I closed it and restarted it. After that, they started showing up as they installed. Weird bug I guess.

I have what I believe to be a 80386-based computer. The previous owner said it was part of a very small production run and that that particular machine was likely to be the last of its type in existence - so much so that revealing its brand might theoretically be enough to dox me.
I also have a huge stack of floppy disks with random crap on them. Perhaps one day I'll get around to installing some old linux on that computer.

Does it look anything like this?

 No.1737

It looks pretty similar to that. It has two floppy drives, one of which is the "standard" size and another larger one. It has a big-ass hard drive inside, I'm not sure whether it is IDE or not I need to check next time I look at it.
On the back there is a port for a serial terminal, and I've got the terminal for it. It has a parallel port for a mouse, and some weird ass round port (not PS/2) for keyboard.
I need to actually find a keyboard for it before I can even consider starting it up.

Microsoft is hosting Build, and they're talking about a whole bunch of stuff including their public AI APIs, and whats next for windows, including linux? If nothing, they do seem to be trying to bring you botnet in new and exciting ways.

MyCroft isn't a Microsoft product. Tay didn't use the MyCroft AI, as they had entirely different purposes. The MyCroft AI, from what I was reading, is for the MyCroft household product (mostly), and not intended for a chatbot AI. (If I'm wrong, correct me)

It seems that Tay was based on something similar to Xiaoice, another Microsoft project.

Of course, it could theoretically be possible to actually turn the MyCroft core into a chatbot. Since it is extensible, and open source, I could see someone using the current software (with the inflection parser, especially), to make a chatbot. However, this probably wouldn't be a text-to-text chatbot, but a voice-driven chatbot. It'd be very interesting if someone does actually create this, and I'd be very willing to try it out.

You can't do that to open source though. Open source is an idea, not a standard, and there's tons of different popular open source licenses

Redirector extension settings for having your browser go to Hooktube version of a video when you click on a YouTube link.

Bypasses ads, allows downloading of videos, and strips out all the google tracking.

Does that help bypass videos that aren't available in your area or are blocked by governments?

Asking for a friend.

 No.1721

>>1720
no, i don't think so. I think google does ip range blocks for "Not available in your area" type messages, so you'd probably have to use a vpn of sorts. Doesn't hurt to try it though, so if you try it, let us know because I'm honestly not 100% on this.

 No.1722

>>1721
To further clarify how this wouldn't work, the reason hooktube works, or worked rather, is because it used it's servers as a median. Since it's servers were US-based, you were counted as a US viewer. Using mpv+youtube-dl wouldn't have this same effect (I think), because you'd be accessing it with your normal IP.

>it used its servers as a median
This is not true. Hooktube simply linked the jewglevideo server to the viewer, so the viewer could get the video directly from jewgle. Having to relay all the video content would quickly cause hooktube to run out of bandwidth.

 No.1725

>>1724
This is correct. Hooktube simply had it's own client, that played the video directly from video.google.com

Since you were accessing the video directly, there was no middle man web client to check if you were allowed to view it.

This is for those of you who ask about this form factor every so often. I hope enough people join so that he makes beige ones.

The X500 Pro is the final product in a line of computer cases designed a few years back (the X500 Plus and later the Evo with a mechanical keyboard) as a tribute to the computers of the '80s and '90s (Commodore, Atari, Sinclair etc…). It's a wedge styled computer case with built-in, full size mechanical keyboard.

That's pretty cool. The keyboard will outlive the usability of the machine. Not sure about the angle of the keyboard though.

I remember havign to reach behind the Commodore to turn it on and off.

 No.1582

>>1581
The keyboard it comes with is a budget Ducky one. Even though Cherry MX is advertised with the rating of millions of operations, key chatter is bound to develop sooner or later. So the case will probably outlive everything else. You can just replace the Ducky keyboard with another one. As for the keyboard angle, you could use keycaps with a different profile because Cherry MX stems!

The chassis that I originally opened this thread with is dead so I ended up finding a substitute in the Checkmate A1500 which has the pizza box form factor. It's for Amiga fans but can fit mITX/mATX with a full-size reference blower-style graphics card. There'll also be risers so you can slide your keyboard under it when not in use.
