NEXT FLOOR [PLEASE]

NEXT FLOOR [PLEASE]

Enough of technical computer rant. Here is some pure video art. A short film by [Denis Villeneuve] . What i love in these short films is how the essential essence is compactly concentrated in a such small video footage. NEXT FLOOR [PLEASE?] Imagery by spacedrone808

ZODIAC [2007] ▀ DETECTIVE OBSESSION

Need a really gooood detective movie? Here is one: [Zodiac] . No weak acting. No dumb computer visuals. Very long, detailed, quite linear, but solid. Film is watched without any interruptions in one single breath. OFFICIAL TRAILER Imagery by spacedrone808

nsCDE ▀ NOT SO COMMON DESKTOP FROM UNIX LIKE OPERATING SYSTEMS

Surfing through meaningless tier lists on YT dedicated to various Unix graphical user interfaces by home-made experts without even showing them in a proper way and doin’ subjective ratings, i’ve stumbled upon on “obsolete” [CDE] environment and was interested in it’s 90’ish looks, despite the fact that “expert” narrated that it is in a “yuck” category and not worth even touching. After jogging through comments i’ve noticed that some wise man mentioned about modern reincarnation of CDE project named [nsCDE] .
IPHONE 15 PRO MAX VS NOKIA PUREVIEW 808 [2023 vs 2012]

IPHONE 15 PRO MAX VS NOKIA PUREVIEW 808 [2023 vs 2012]

CURRENTLY TEST IS NOT OPTIMIZED FOR MOBILE VIEW! IMAGE WIDTH >1600px IS RECOMMENDED! ▒ DIRECT COMPARISON In the very beginning of the test I underline the fact that we are comparing only resolution and not the dynamic range. In this category older FSI sensor is an outsider, for sure. Today’s rival is [IPHUCK 15 PRO MAX] with almost the same sensor size as Nokia. As you may already know Nokia PureView 808 comes with 1/1.

MERCURY ▀ EXPERIMENTAL FIREFOX BUILD

UPDATED ON: 2023-08-02 Benchmarks and fixes added. Currently i’m using [IceWeasel] browser. Quite satisfied with it in terms of web surfing, but there are a bunch of problems related to no-so correct GPU-acceleration, which works fine in original Firefox. Some visual JS scripts feel laggy, YT tearing is also showing it’s teeth. Couple of days ago i’ve stumbled upon interesting Firefox fork named [Mercury] . Browser claims to be around 8-20% faster than stock version of Firefox.

And now i’ve decided to give a shot to top end keyboard of Keychron brand.

HORDE OST ▀ REMIXED BY TRACKERNINJA808

Not long ago i’ve decided to upload my personal OST remixes to various games/movies/events of 80s/90s era. Hope you’ll find such idea interesting, [drop me a line] if you have any thought on this. Today’s upload: calm backdrop music was played during [Horde] gameplay. trackerninja808 · Riku Nuottajarvi - Horde Building Tune Imagery by spacedrone808
LENOVO X1 CARBON 6TH GENERATION ▀ BRIEF REVIEW

LENOVO X1 CARBON 6TH GENERATION ▀ BRIEF REVIEW

Main highlights of [6th generation] over [previous one] : very good keyboard for ultra-compact class [same quality as in 5th gen]. By the way, 6th generation is a last one to support such luxury. Generations 7th and 8th come with [crippled apple-like keys] with reduced key travel. noticeable quality increase in terms of color gamut, even better than in 5th generation. sRGB gamut: 95% [Gen6] vs 85% [Gen 5]. multi-core performance [increased around 80%] over 5th gen.
WHY FALLOUT I/II ARE THE BEST COMPUTER GAMES EVER MADE BY HUMANITY

WHY FALLOUT I/II ARE THE BEST COMPUTER GAMES EVER MADE BY HUMANITY

► QUICK LIST ON WHY I THINK SO: made in golden time of game industry [late 90s] TOTALLY NON-LINEAR INSANE REPLAYABILITY immersive post-apocalyptic setting and overall vibe impressive concoction of RPG and quest genres best soundtrack in game industry, thanks to incredibly perceptive [Mark Morgan] ► HOW ABOUT SOME CONS? Franchise is pretty buggy due to it’s complexity. But we already have [FIXT] mod for [Fallout 1] and [RPU] for [Fallout 2] .

HUNTERS 1-2 [1996-2011] ▀ SWEDISH DETECTIVE STORIES

Tired of crappy holywood detective action stories? Here is a couple of really decent ones. Swedish at this time. Quite boring at the beginning, but surprisingly intense in the end. Good acting is also here. [The Hunters] [The Hunters 2: False Trail] THE HUNTERS [1996] FALSE TRAIL [2011] Imagery by spacedrone808
COMPREHENSIVE HISTORY OF UFO X-COM GAME SERIES BY RETROAHOY

COMPREHENSIVE HISTORY OF UFO X-COM GAME SERIES BY RETROAHOY

Incredibly stellar and consistent narration of [RetroAhoy] forced me to share this captivating story with you. One of the few channels with million subs which delivers unmatched review quality. Such quality can be found more likely on smaller YT channels, rather than on top channels. First priority of which is to promote loads of sh#te ads. THE HISTORY OF UFO: X-COM Imagery by spacedrone808

THE BEST PATCHES FOR CLASSIC S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

One more S.T.A.L.K.E.R. posting if you don’t mind. Mods and [modern versions] are nice, but classic [Stalker series] shouldn’t be forgotten too. Here is a list of classic games. [Shadow of Chernobyl] ► original first version of Stalker game series [the most atmospheric & my favorite one] [Clear Sky] ► prequel to Shadow of Chernobyl [Call of Pripyat] ► sequel to Shadow of Chernobyl Vivid table, which conveniently represents games from the most buggy to the less buggy.
FALLOUT ▀ VAULT13 [TBD]

FALLOUT ▀ VAULT13 [TBD]

Is an ambitious project to replicate Fallout 1 world using Fallout 4 engine. Currently game in it’s early stage of development, but location of Shady Sands was already showcased to the public. Developers intend to redo original voice-over because of copyright trademarks. Moreover they are trying to copy voice aesthetics as close as possible to original Fallout 1. Also you can already preview multiple soundtracks created by [Radiofloyd] . As for me, I really like what they are doing, despite the fact that I’m not fond of Fallout 3/4.

DOLPHIN ▀ GN-Z11

The rocket is striving into the darkness of grace We are no longer among those who is worthy of Earth The photon bird can scatter us into the space And rip us out of the loop of rebirth for good berth Forget everything what you have chance to know nowaday Leave that garbage to those who have lost their minds We’ll braid a strand in the milky way With the threads of lives our love’s names
