I dont know how it happens, I dont know why it happens, But the server I manage works fine one day and fucks up the next. No cause, no reason. It just decides it does not want to work properly today...

Linus (from Tech Tips) talking about the history of Windows:

"And Microsoft even sold some simple games like Minesweeper for Windows 3.0. Games that became extremely popular and got people thinking about the PC as a gaming platform".

Dude. No.

DOS games were in a hot contest with console and arcade games long before Windows 3.0 hit the scene, and kept being the dominant PC gaming platform long *after* 3.0 showed up.

It took years for Windows to finally catch up with DOS games, mostly thanks to DirectX.

eBay is vague on why they're removing adult content from their entire service but a solid guess is that it's to obey the #Apple appstore.

So far Discord is the only one that I know of that did the smartest move: just block adult content from iOS devices but keep it open for everyone else.

I think first time I heard the word "application" used instead of "program" was around the time when Windows 95 came out, which created the mental association of "an application is something that runs in Windows unlike a real program that doesn't need Windows to run."

Gently explaining to a co-worker that I can't "fix it" and make files they left on their powered down workstation become accessible over the VPN remotely.
