    Driving simulator games general

    So, I just bought Snowrunner and noticed there wasn't a thread on it. I then looked for threads on other driving sim games I like, such as Euro Truck Simulator 2 and Farming Simulator 19. Nothing. Figured I'd make a general thread on these games since there probably isn't enough interest for a...

    Distance learning systems

    So, at work we've been using a locally made computer program for distance learning. It records the voice and whatever happens on the computer screen. The program then uploads it to a server and you can view it via a web page. The only problem is, is that the program is no longer maintained...

    Poll Betting on the Election

    So, I'm curious as to whether any of you are actually betting hard money on this election. If so, who are you betting for to win, and if you feel like it, how much?

    Grim Fandango Remastered

    The folks over at Gog.com are releasing a remastered version of one of my favourite adventure games of all time, Grim Fandango. One of the best features (unless they muck it up) will be a new control system. I've already pre-ordered it since I lent my old CDs ages ago and have no idea where they...

    Turn based tactical squad games

    Anyone recommend any new or old turn based tactical squad games. I've always liked games such as the original X-com, Jagged Alliance and such, but I've played them to death. Recently I have played Xenonauts, a very good remake of X-com, the new X-com as well as both Shadowrun games. All have...

    Quality home appliances

    So my trusty Black & Decker toster has finally died on me after 20+ years of faithful service. As a result I'm looking for a new toaster. The problem is, as I've always said, in this day and age of Chinese manufacturing and Planned Obsolescence it's very, very hard to find any appliance or...

    The old age thread

    I thought I'd start a thread on old age since, let's face it, we're not getting any younger and some of us here are past our prime. I figure we could use a thread where we can discuss our hopes and fears for old age/retirement. Have you started planning for it, if yes, how? Do you worry about...

    Looking for a computer program that can find and edit text in multiple files

    So, I was going to mod a game, but found out that in order to do what I want to do I'll have to edit a few lines of text in a number of .txt files located in a single folder. We're talking about hundreds of files here so manually doing this would be pretty tedious. I'd like to know if anyone...

    Comparison of image file types (jpg, gif, emf)

    Can someone point me to a good website that teaches the pros and cons of various different image file types, such as .jpg, .gif, .png, and especially Enhanced Metafiles? In my work I use Word a lot to edit documents with lots of pictures in and it's getting to the point where it would be good...

    TV shows and mini-series that have a defined story

    Let's face it, most TV shows are open ended, meaning that the creators write (or get others to) the show on the fly. This means that often you can miss out on whole episodes without having missed out on the main plot. After all, it's tough to fill 20+ episodes a season with meaningful dialoge...

    Gaming on Linux for n00bs

    I've been a Windows user since Windows for Workgroups 3.11 back in the day. But I've all but got to the point where I've given up on it. I'm using Win7 at the moment but have decided that once I have to upgrade my machine I will think long and hard of switching to Linux. Now, practically the...

    MS Office help

    Didn't find a topic that this might be relevant in, so I thought I'd create an MS Office help topic, as I have a problem I need help with. The thing is I need to send out a letter to a bunch of people, and while each letter is largely the same, there are certain fields that change (name...

    Games suitable for children

    First of, I'm posting this here instead of the Other Games forum for the simple reason that I'd like a serious discussion on this from people with young children of their own, and to hear their experiences and recommendations. I was talking with a family member today who was children of about...
