Cannot say how truly dead it is, but judging on how I have yet to see any sane adult say almost anything good about Wish, I assume it's nearly on deaths doorstep already. With all other 3D animated Rickey Rats original and not subsidiary company films you had adults that liked them but I have yet to find a single adult with no mental defects that likes/liked Wish.

If Wish is setting the standard for their 3D films, you can beat it's on death's door, if not far from it.

Nothing makes white people support racism quite like cutting them off from electricity for however long it would take to fix the damages. /s

What is it with racially charged hate groups and damaging things that affect the people they supposedly are fighting for? I wouldn't be surprised if groups like white supremacists are more than willing to sacrifice white people in order to further their goal but are too pansy to sacrifice themselves. Sounds right up their wheelhouse, those neanderthals.

My big problem with stuff like that is I know I could probably do it, but I'm worried I'd find the one way that bricks the system. Might look into seeing how much a pre-modified card, though, since I never thought about the whole thing of them being sold online.

Had something similar in 2020 happen. Things happened and it ended with him and my mom getting into a heated argument as to why he can't get help from police or some other resources (which I can't remember). Ended with my mom pretty much telling the guy not to return.

He played the part of a nice person, but in the end he was trouble. So I think my answer to this would probably be not to trust them.

May not be the same type of stuff, but I've seen comple box sets of shows like Courage the Cowardly Dog, Edd Ed N Eddy, and a few other shows for roughly around $30 a set at my local Walmart. It's absolutely beautiful to see physical media box sets at a reasonable price crushes streaming prices.

If we're talking about just what you watched before you recognized it was anime, it's between pokemon, Naruto, and One Piece. Couldn't tell you which I watched first.

If we're talking "Oh! I recognize this is anime!" then probably either Deathnote or Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) thanks to mid-2010s Netflix (back when it was still good).

Growing up one of my best friends was African American, but we lost contact after elementary school. Don't have a clue how to contact him or if he'd even want to get in touch, though.

My brother did see him at his job and he remembered my brother, so there's that. I wish him well, but I don't know if I can handle bringing back old friends into my life because of how awkward it would be for me, as someone who doesn't handle awkward well.

May have never gotten around to playing Fallout 2 as of now, let alone getting past the first settlement in Fallout, but I might have to give this mod a try. Real soon.

Okay, regardless of what you think about the war going on in Israel, you at least gotta admit that this is fucked up. As if I needed another reason to never trust macrohard.

I hope of I were to get a pre-paid card and use that on a Redbox before they close them down that I could get away with getting free DVDs/Blu-ray, assuming that there's anything good in them and that nobody comes after me for that.

After buying a home in a nice, non-HOA demon neighborhood, probably end up working on a company that makes mid-range phones with a headphone jack, slot for 2 SIM cards and a microSD, and have the system run on a 3rd party Linux OS capable of running APK files and other android apps. I'd definitely wanna have good R&D put into making sure it sandboxes android apps and makes it only allowed to see what's in the sandbox, though, so go*gle cannot see what you do.

That, or just straight up start up my idea for the Open Access Oasis community, where we believe open access to all scholarly articles found on databases like go*gle scholar and other such sites should be free in order to create a brighter tomorrow. Only exceptions to that being things like malware, viruses, worms, Trojans, etcetera, hidden behind a paywall not going open access because most people would just end up damaging their own devices. The idea I had/have for the logo is a playing card of the dual king in a lab coat being hung with an oasis in the background. That, and the card suit being a $, a king of $.


Mostly asking because I've never used these before due to never needing to. That, and I have a few old disc based PC games that I'd love to be able to straight up boot without the game disc. These are games I could just pirate, but I figure I already own them in disc, so I'd rather see if there are any reputable places with no-disc patches. The places I've looked in the megathread don't have what I'm looking for.

Closest they have is either a link to the game on another platform in the case of My Abandonware due to it being sold, or a link to just straight up pirate the full thing in the case of Magipack Games. I've also done some digging on the Internet Archive but have yet to yield results (probably because I suck at finding things there). Still gonna keep looking there, but any helpful info would be much appreciated.

I don't think I can share the game names, even in DM, due to the rules here, so site mainpages are my best shot.


I've never ripped CDs or DVDs before for any reason and am curious how this works since I have some stuff I wanna see about backing up but am nervous about ruining the disc. I've tried looking this up, but every time I do, I obviously am searching for the wrong thing because I have never found the info I'm looking for.


Linux noob. Just got a pair of Skull Candy Push Active XT bluetooth earbuds. They pair just fine with my setup but no sound comes through them. I found many different posts on various forums and nothing helped.

Using the inxi command I pulled some info I think might help, if it's needed. (I don't know if any of this is needed to help fix this issue. I've only been using MX for a little over a week and have never really done a lot of under the hood Linux maintenance before, but am more than willing to learn to fix this issue). If there is sny other information needed, I'm willing to edit this with any of that information, if I can find it.

Got a copy of Borderlands (EU iso) from the r/ROMS megathread and found out there is securom verification (which I have absolutely no experience with) as part of the installation process.

Closest I have found to a solution to bypass so far after some brief searching was one "Generic Securom 7/8 by Virusek" off of the "LOSTFILESARCHIVE" github page, which leads to a 404 page (even on the wayback machine).

Are there any programs or patches you would recommend to bypass this god awful drm?
