My claims to previously owned cables were excessive fragility and the fact that they are prone to physical damage too much. Although that i’m using my hardware with care, wire breakage happens quite often. So i decided to go a bit overkill in terms of elimination of this nasty problem.
[Dunu Hulk Pro]
is a confirmation of my words. It’s a top of the line copper-based wire of Dunu branding.
I already mentioned desktop version of [UFO: X-COM Defence]
Also there is open-source [Android port]
of the game. In today’s post i would like to recommend you an extended modification called [OpenXcom Extended]
. Mod offers plenty of improvements over the original version including neat touchscreen controls [!].
Download [OpenXcom Extended]
||| [direct link to v7.8] Download original DOS [game cache]
||| [mega.nz] Extract downloaded archive into SDcard/OpenXcom folder Run game launcher and point it to newly created folder Check the plethora of settings provided by the game Now you can shot alien scum wherever you want!
Not long ago i’ve already mentioned about privacy-hardened [Mull browser]
. Very nice Android browser, but have one serious downside: limited amount of supported addons. Yes, i like desktop convenience on the go!
To enable additional addons in mobile Firefox browser you’ll need to sideload custom addon collection tied to mozilla account. It’s astonishing fact how they like to implement overcomplicated stuff!
To create your own collection you’ll need Firefox account, but i’ll not bother to spent time on such dumb efforts.
UPDATED ON: 2023-03-07 ► added PCM to DSD real-time conversion
After a year of extensive testing i find out that [Shanling M6]
has some flaws, which won’t fit my requirements. It is an excellent 2-way DAC DAP in terms of sound quality. All my claims have purely ergonomic nature: Dim display, big form factor [at least from my point of view], weak battery life.
These factors forced me to look at [Ibasso DX240]
I was completely floored by quality of movie atmosphere and yeah, this is true [retro-future-cyberpunk show]
of the 80s, without any strained interpretations.
Pumping soundtrack, marvelous neon illumination with dramatic light beams, excellent design rise quality of the picture to the point where we can safely say “this is classic!”. Glorious CRT monitors, bulky industrial keyboards, cool computer graphics made on fancy new [Amiga]
computers. FILM WAS AVAILABLE IN SUPERB 30 FPS [EAT THIS!
Section is constantly updated, so check back in a while for new goodies
Here i’ll accumulate list of modern applications, which were forced to work in Windows 7 environment.
► [v3.4] [OBS STUDIO]
► [v22.214.171.124] [PYTHON]
► [v3.11.1] ……..

One of my readers asked me why i’m not doing long posts. Answer is pretty trivial. I don’t have much time for writing longer articles. That is why i’m sticking to concept of really short blips, almost like tweets, but a bit longer.
Bright side of such aspect is that i’m diving straight to the facts, without any unneeded mambo-jambo.
For some reason we all in a hurry now, right? Think that blips disposition is quite effective though.
UPDATED ON: 2023-03-10 ► Thanks goes out to Jean Lebon for suggesting [service to fix broken links]
Super fast information on website. Please don’t hesitate to report broken links, because i already can’t handle correctness of site pages, due to enormous site growth. Website hosts around 1Mb of pure text. A little more and i’ll surpass [Fallout 1]
text quantity. Currently all textual information can be saved on a single [3.
Observing [february Windows updates]
@ Ghacks we can clearly see that Windows Server 2008 R2 is still maintained.
…author of [Simplix updater]
reported that POS ESU updates will be back-ported to non-server Windows 7 distribution and included in his monthly patcher. So, future usage of Windows 7 is 100% safeguarded. Stay sharp for more “obsolete” Windows 7 news!

It looks like that i found replacement for [Fenec F-Droid]
browser, for real. I’m not completely satisfied with not fully removed telemetry, shady stubs and other fishy things presented by Fennec. That is why i begin to investigate the problem and discovered [Mull browser]
. Main features of it:
DOESN’T DIAL BACK NEITHER TO GOOGLE NOR TO MOZILLA [and that’s a complete steal] based around hardened version of user.js [main FireFox configuration file] frequently updated [keeps up with original Firefox releases] mascot of Mull is rather awful [but who cares?
FAR Manger is orthodox file manager written in C++. I am using it as file management tool from early childhood. Application is impressively fast in terms of speed due to it’s text-based nature and highly optimized routines. File operations like copy and move are waaaay faster than default windows explorer can deliver. Advanced batch processing and automation tools make file management a breath. Think that software have some similarities with text editor [Vim]
As you may know X670 chipset is already supported by means of [CanonKong’s driver]
. [Ryzen 7950X]
is confirmed to work with Windows 7. Ryzen 8000 reported to use the same AM5 socket as Ryzen 7000.
CanonKong [confirmed above mentioned statement]
with his own commentary:
I think I will maintain driver pack for modern amd chips until out of my ability.
Ryzen 8000 still can work on Win7. So we can safely announce that Ryzen 8000-series will work without any problems.
Recently i’ve switched to newer version of Vegas Pro. Tweeeenty to be precise. I’m using Vegas for basic montage of my tracker music clips for [Tik-Tok channel]
. Despite the fact that eighteeeen is surely a nice number i decided to move on and be a hip.
To my surprise transition goes so well that i didn’t noticed that i’m using new release. Right after execution Vegas 20 outputs window with [Windows 7 EOL warning], with something like this:
I’ll keep post updated if any changes happen.
Recently last officially supported version was [27.4.2]
. But from now on we can use actual version of software.
Here is small instruction list on how to make things rollin’ under mighty Windows 7:
Obtain hacked [QT 6.3.1 DLLs for Windows 7]
[QT6 is not officially supported] Download [CFF Explorer]
[direct link] for basic resource hackery Obviously grab latest zipped archive [OBS Studio 29.
Without further ado, straight to the facts:
last version with sane amount of system services, which can’t be turned off absence of [neural networks API]
, which is used for telemetry, collection/profiling user data with subsequent uploading collected information to third-parties [for the first time technology was introduced in Android 8.1] full support of any modern browser [even Android 6.0 can handle this] ability to load legacy Android 2.x applications without any issues [Android 14 is already blocking such apps] I care about older stuff simply because of code quality.
Unexpectedly Dell released firmware updates for 8 and 5 year old laptops. What a neat occasion! At least some benefit from purchasing enterprise-grade products. Patches are fixing malicious exploits and tweak some stuff.

If you like pixel art quests and [cyberpunk]
atmosphere here is a good suggestion: [Technobabylon]
. Game is published by Wadjet Eye Games previously known for brilliant [Gemini Rue]
. In brief: detailed dialogue lines, immersive atmosphere, cool design aesthetics.
Music composer is Nathan Allen Pinard, who is also known for immersive soundtrack for Gemini Rue. So you won’t be disappointed in terms of musical vibes. I think that 50% of game’s atmospere comes from music.
is the best soviet Sci-Fi movie produced by [Andei Tarkovsky]
. It often counts as direct answer to beautiful and timeless [2001: A Space Odyssey]
by [Stanley Kubrick]
. Although Solaris had far less budget it surely provides plenty of food to the grey matter. Moreover, movie goes even deeper in philosophical aspects than Space Odyssey. So, the film is for those of you who like to think things over.
