  1. All ya gotta do is install the Beta Version of GOG Galaxy and then you can claim the Freebie. Log into your account and scroll down a bit until you see this:
  2. Well, I recreated a few BigFish game Shortcuts on my Desktop to try that importing method, but when I do, it gives all the games identical names (see below). I'm gonna have to rename every one of them, aren't I? (I have many more than in this test).
  3. Not really VR, exactly, but the Divers Augmented Vision Display (DAVD) is a high-resolution, see-through head-up display (HUD) embedded directly inside of a diving helmet. The Polo shirt notwithstanding, this reminded me a little of BioShock.
  4. FWIW, I just added a bunch of MS Office Guides (Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc.), as well as Windows 10, Internet Explorer 11, and Mac OS X Quick Reference Cards.
  5. Click here for more info on the Division movie and here for Assassin's Creed.
  6. SentaiBrad said Or, if you have a folder full of shortcuts you can drag and drop them in to LB, add them as MS-DOS, then use the Bulk Edit function to remove the need for DOS. Should also work. We have Shortcut importing planned actually so workarounds wont be needed for ever. Haha! That figures. Since BigFish has their own 'game launching program', I recently deleted the vast army of Shortcuts it had created, since I didn't need them anymore. P.S. The Shortcut Importing thing sounds nice. I love it that LB is constantly being improved.
  7. Dude, you found a TRS-80?!?! Perhaps you should contact Antique Roadshow or American Pickers!
  8. It is crazy! But wouldn't you need sophisticated equipment to extract anything out of Fuel Injector Cleaner? If they start 'checking' everything you can kill brain cells with, if you whiff it, it could slow-down the check-out line a bit. A few years ago I got "checked" for the proper age at the Self-Checkout when buying 6-pack of root beer. Turns-out, kids were replacing the brown root beer bottles with brown, plain ol' beer bottles. They'd scan the 6-pack cardboard thing, and Presto!, it's looks as if they're buying root beer.
  9. Just made my early morning store run (love the light traffic!), and while at the Self-Checkout, I had to wait for the clerk to “clear” a purchase I made. I needed to be 18 to purchase Fuel Injector Cleaner (upon seeing me, the clerk didn’t ‘card’ me – apparently I appear to be over 18). What in the Hell are these Meth-head types extracting out of Fuel Injector Cleaner? Maybe they’re just sniffing it…?
  10. Jason, LaunchBox is up to about 100 Floppies now! I recall my last big, diskette install (at place of employment). Microsoft Office v2.0 (may have been starting to come out on CD's, too). A whopping 29 diskettes! At around 2 minutes/diskette, it wasn't a speedy install.
  11. Obviously, LaunchBox is 'the knight in shining armor' when it comes to resolving many gaming hardware compatibility issues, with the Gaming Miracle of Emulation, with a mostly idiot-proof GUI, to the rescue! However, I often decide to struggle with getting somewhat incompatible hardware working together (I don't know why I put myself through the grief. I suppose it's the challange, and more realistic than climbing to the summit of Mt. Everest). Anyway, you may recall me mentioning in a different Thread, when I upgraded my A/V Receiver and TV, my NES and Intellivision no longer worked (
  12. If ya want a free Clipboard that, among other things, holds more than one thing at a time: M8 Free Clipboard (You can even save frequently used things 'permanently')!
  13. I just wanna find the best overall 'Tweaking Suite' and use it exclusively, instead of using different parts of different ones. Most of the time I don't really know if it's doing any good, anyway. Many so-called experts claim, for example, that Registry Cleaners really do very little to improve real-world performance, but I'm not personally inclined to experiment with it that much.
  14. SentaiBrad said The last 4-5 years though I started using ASC, and between that + Malwarebytes Antimalware I get very little issues with my systems or systems I put that software on. Interestingly, several years ago Malwarebytes sued (or was gonna sue) IOBits. Click here for details.
  15. It was amusing. Itman turned-out to be harmless, but he may be more skilled, now. I get calls now and then from people with an Indian accent (India/Pakistan) claiming to work for iolo (System Mechanic), and they've remotely detected an issue with my PC and would like to log into it, in order to rectify this potentially damaging situation. [iolo told me they don't do this, just as the IRS won't call you asking for money]. I usually just say unpleasant things regarding camels and what not - do they even have camels in India? ), then hang-up and report them (if I get a phone number). P.
  16. DOS76 said That pretty much looks like my XBox One Now that I'm lookin' at it closer, due to your observation, I don't think my first picture was a "Slim Version".
  17. The ever accurate Internet has 'supplied' me with different pictures of the rumored Xbox One Slim (one more rounded than the other):
  18. Samsung releases a 512GB SSD that's smaller that a Postage Stamp! The insanity of it all!
  19. SentaiBrad said Another program I love is IOBit Advanced System Care http://www.iobit.com/en/advancedsystemcarefree.php So it's actually only got a free section, and some features are behind the pro license, but I think it is very much well worth it. So, out of all the System Cleaning/Tweaking programs, such as iolo's System Mechanic, Ashampoo's WinOptimizer, Norton Utilities, Glary Utilities, AVG's PC TuneUp, Uniblue's Powersuite, etc., etc., why did you select IOBit's Advanced System Care? I must admit, the Drive Booster program that comes with it was the only program I've used l
  20. I forgot to mention, I asked the guy if SnapPower had ever tried to appear on Shark Tank. He said they had, but by the time the Shark Tank producers got back to them, they (SnapPower) no longer needed their assistance. Big smile from him after I commented on how great that was.
