An Honest House

If I were in the market for a trailer, and lived in Alabama, I'd definitely buy one from him. It's probably one of the reasons why I prefer Android over iPhone. I don't expect it to be 100% absolute best, so I'm never disappointed with it<snip>

Las Vegas Shooting

What a blatant and deliberately misleading article. Point #1 talks about correlation between gun ownership and mass shootings, and even shows a chart. However, the chart shows no correlation. France and Germany have 3x the mass shootings than Switzerlan<snip>

Blitz3d - Grayscale to texture map

I once created a heightmap texture creator program from reading this book https://www.amazon.com/Focus-Terrain-Programming-Game-Development/dp/1592000282
Unfortunately, I don't know what happened to it, on one of my old drives somewhere .

If you upgraded during the free period, then you shouldn't need a key. if I remember correctly, when it asks for a key, you just skip and install anyway. Once it logs onto the internet, it will grab the proper key from Microsoft and validate your cop<snip>

The Creators Update

I would suggest go to your Ethernet manufacturer's website, download and install latest driver. For some reason, several people have had bad network drivers installed with the creator's update causing overheating problems. Had the same thing happe<snip>

Semi-related, I only just found out that Jiggawatts was a mispronunciation of Gigawatts!
Not so much an incorrect pronunciation, but rather an old American pronunciation, something Doc Brown would have used in the 1950s.

Rollyball. Fun game, but I don't like that you only get one chance to solve a level. Idea: start with 3 lives, one life ends when you go off the level or get hit by the flaming asteroids (or whatever they are). You can collect bonus lives randomly p<snip>

You can just right click on the system tray icon and select which type of colorblindness you want to test. Then your screen will filter with those colors for a few seconds so you can see just what things look like.

If you are on Windows 10, it may be installing the Win10 creators edition for you. Probably the thing I hate most about Windows 10, I should be able to decide when I want updates.

@steve_ancell, if the built in Blitz version doesn't work for you, you can modify this version that only works on Ints and leaves the leading 0s

Seems a bug in the forums created some confusion. Spinal made the topic "dec 2 hex?" but left the body of the post blank. I responded with showing the Hex$ command. Seems the blank post then gets deleted making it look like I started the topic,<snip>
