Re: We are past the stage where the OS has become the virus

I have done the same sort of thing for "Automatic Updates" many times, and Windows always manages to turn it back on, despite whatever article I read saying that it would be permanently disabled. I had the same experience. I spent some time researching the topic (how to make Windows usable, to say ...

Warlord chess pieces by William H. Rogers

Hello! I made a GitHub repository with the graphics of the Warlord chess program by William H. Rogers. I like these pieces and would find sad that they could be lost. The pieces are available in *.bmp and *.png format. The repository includes the Pascal programs that I used to create the pictures fr...

(I'm genuinely curious as I'm not a Linux user myself I may have misjudged the situation) Yes, I tried but it didn't work. The instructions doesn't seem to be made for my Linux distribution (Ma...

I had zero problems with the current makefile (with march=native) in msys2 + gcc
