It's called "Vulkan" not "Vulcan". It's what is going to break the stranglehold of DirectX on the graphics API.

Information on Vulkan here.

Vulkan is actually a subset of Khronos. You can find all the contributors here.

It's an industry wide open standard so anything written with Vulkan is runnable on any platform:

Consoles
PCs
Handhelds
Phones
Linux
Windows
macOS
*BSD

I wonder why Sony seems so interested in purchasing the Americana of yesteryear.

So they can monetize it and sell it to Boomers and hipsters who like to pretend there was a "golden age" of music.

I had one of the Aeron chairs and hated it. The back webbing/mesh gave too much for my taste. Gave it to my wife who loved it and I picked up a AKRacing Masters Series Max that I love. The neck and lumbar support pillows are awesome and I sit in this thing for way too many hours a day yet still remain comfortable.

"Wi-Fi 7 could* provide speeds of more than 30 gigabits per second (Gbps) and close to 40Gbps. As ArsTechnica points out, the still relatively new Wi-Fi 6 reaches speeds of up to 9.6Gbps."

*emphasis mine.

"Could" meaning in absolutely perfect conditions with zero interference.

Now show me "close to 40Gbps" in a densely populated apartment complex where everyone has their wifi router/repeater on full blast and everyone of those routers/repeaters is channel hopping trying to get a clear signal. Oh, and show me how WiFi 7 magically fixes the fact that you can just harvest data that much faster with something like aircrack-ng?

I think I'll still stick to cabling for reliable transmission rates and better security.

So how exactly does one load cheat software on a handheld that only loads stuff from Steam?
The same way you root a normal console/handheld except much easier.

The Steam Deck has a microSD slot and many of the games on Steam allow for modding. It would most likely be fairly trivial to get some non-Valve frontend booted up on it.

It's even easier than that. Since this is Arch Linux based, just use ssh and scp then fire off the shell script of your choice.

Has anyone heard from Aclesius lately? He hasn't posted in a while now. He's a fellow Cental Texan so I'm concerned given the spike we've had in Omicron.

I know I am the resident C19 worry wart for some of you but....

With Omicron as the dominant strain, I will forever question your intelligence if you go to a movie theatre right now. Maybe not your intelligence so much as your survival instincts. A movie is not a good reason to possibly be exposed to a quickly mutating pandemic. Use your brains people, you will live longer. Sure, Omicron isn't AS fatal, but if you are dying from C19....is there any movie you can imagine that would have been worth it?

But let's say you're in the "hurr durr I wants tuh normalz" crowd and you survive a COVID infection. Congratulations, you just signed up to be part of the Long COVID test group! Your prizes* are waiting for you! So come on down!

Personally, I don't give a shit if someone is "pandemic fatigued". Suck it up, princess, keep your shit wired tight, and carry on. Nobody gives a fuck about how you feel. This isn't kindergarten and you can virtually visit with a licensed therapist if you just can't possibly keep your shit wired tight. As much of a misanthrope as I am, I have no interest in joining the infantile, irresponsible dickhead brigade who just has to go to concerts, theatres, bars, restaurants, etc so I can kill the immunocompromised, the elderly, and kids.

I just wish someone would make a decent backlit ergonomic keyboard in the same vein as the Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 that was $100 or less.

In my own defense, I have a very old kitty who is hurting quite badly with arthritis today so I have spent much of my day on the couch holding her in my arms under a blanket to keep her warm.

As the article explains, it seems to be happening not on Roku devices but on smart TVs "...running the Roku TV platform...". So, it is the TV manufacturers (seemingly mainly Samsung) who are responsible, not Roku.

I never connect my "smart" TV to the network. If it required it, I would connect it to a VLAN that has a null route. It looks like it connects but never goes anywhere.

Win win.

I think I would be more excited if I didn't have the feeling that gaming was passing me by. Nothing Activision has done in, oh, the last decade has had any interest for me. Now, were Microsoft to announce they were remaking Interstate 76, I would sit up and notice.

But the likelihood of that is about the same as me winning the lottery twice.

Apropos of nothing, I spent Friday and yesterday at the range really dialing in my Springfield Armory M1A and Ruger SR-762. I made the best shots of my life with the SR-762 at 1100 yards. 1.5" MoA (or spread for laymen) with five rounds and some stiff winds. That was with a scope. My M1A has iron sights so I didn't even attempt 1100 yards on it. I was limited to 200 yards and I was able to get a 1" MoA from prone which is respectable for that particular rifle and the wind speeds. I like my M1A, and I can see it being a good cross-country rifle, but I am in love with that SR-762.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr gave his "I have a dream" speech in 1963. Nigh on 60 years later and we are barely closer to his hopes. Until the US pulls its head out of its ass and grows up, we will never achieve that for which he so fervently hoped.

It never fails to make me laugh when some dumbass gets stuck in a chimney. Are they not aware that flues exist and have about enough radius to let a small dog through? But then, criminals are morons by and large.
