Free Copy of the Sims 2 Contains SecuROM

Hohlraum Re:VMware Player (234 comments)

I have a VMs that runs windows xp and 98. They is specifically for old games that won't work on newer operating systems or have stuff like tages or securom. VMware player supports 3d passthrough so on a modern system those older games play perfectly without any frame drop.

Jesus... they run. They are. Coffee hasn't kicked in yet :/

Not because it's good for you. Because they are cupcakes. Who the hell doesn't like cupcakes? :) Communists, that's who.

Dear Asus Router User: All Your Cloud Are Belong To Us

Hohlraum The WORST part is ... (148 comments)

This firmware has been available for several days but if you go into your router and have it check for an update (and you are running the one from months ago like I was) it still says you are using the current version.

I'll NEVER buy another ASUS router again. Their routers get such good reviews. I think it's time to just start running pfsense in a VM on my linux box and just be done with it. Just use the wifi on these shitty routers for wireless lan access.

Hohlraum Re:I get the idea, but is it really necessary? (28 comments)

Ask Slashdot: How Important Is Advanced Math In a CS Degree?

Hohlraum Applied Computer Science (656 comments)

Many universities have applied comp sci b.s. degrees which require a minor in a related degree. They tend to leave out everything above Calc. That would be my recommendation and you might actually be more employable with that degree anyway given the minor.

Google TV 2.0 Review, Tweaks, and Screenshots

Hohlraum Re:Still Junk (107 comments)

The search does work kinda. If you search for something that is on netflix it will show up as a tv series. If you launch that result and its available on netflix it will show up as a 'watch now' option inside that app. But I agree it is cumbersome.
