July 29th, 2012 02:47 AMTwiggyI somehow have four VMs stored in the OS X partition.
July 29th, 2012 02:21 AMArcherWith VMs, I tend to use Virtualbox. Because it's free and doesn't try to integrate with the host OS as much as some others.
July 28th, 2012 04:44 AMTwiggy(Did I throw out the receipt? Whatever the reason it might have been, there goes $20.)
I've noticed that setting the gamma to be one big notch lower in Windows from the default middle setting seems to make it match 2.2 in OS X's Display Calibration Assistant.
I think the very top is 1.0; the middle is 1.8; and the "click any part of the slider below the selector once" be 2.2. (Clicking it twice gave me crushed blacks on the wallpaper, unlike how it looked in OS X.)
(I seem to have a VM bug hitting me.)
July 28th, 2012 04:25 AMTwiggyDoes it make you wonder what's in new OSes?
July 28th, 2012 04:01 AMArcherFair enough. iOS 5 is a little sluggish on the iPhone 4, but it's not too bad.
July 28th, 2012 12:51 AMTwiggyAndroid 4.x is too slow on my aging phone, so I decided to just go back to 2.3.6. (It's not 2.3.3, at least.)
July 26th, 2012 04:31 PMArcherNever really used the Mic much on my MacBook.
July 26th, 2012 06:33 AMTwiggyIf they accept camera "scans", make it tomorrow at the earliest (I expect by this Sunday if they do).
The microphone's crazy stuff when it's recording headphones output with it being essentially stuck on the mic, with nothing in the background producing noise.
The result sounds awfully close to the original.
July 26th, 2012 06:20 AMArcherI daresay they'll have the issues partially redeemed by then.
EDIT: Let me know how it goes. I'm not in a rush to update.
July 26th, 2012 02:48 AMTwiggyI'll just hit up Up-To-Date next Sunday, after I get my receipt back from my uncle's home.
July 25th, 2012 06:04 PMArcherI'm in no hurry. I'll download it at work on Saturday to save myself 4GB of download quota. Then I'll either try it on an external HDD or swap my HDD for a test run. There are a few things that I'm interested in, but also a bunch of features I don't care for.
July 25th, 2012 04:58 AMTwiggy*notices that his receipt is missing*
It's going to be something that can be done this Monday. Aaaaaargh, Mountain Lion~
Said missing receipt might be a blessing in disguise.
July 24th, 2012 03:54 AMTwiggyI must be the only person playing Skyrim at 24 FPS and find it good.
(Heh. I can crank up the texture resolution and actor/light fade safely, and still have my frame rate at least 20.)
As for Minecraft, though... *mind boggles* How fast is the ATi Radeon X900?
I find Firefox to be very awesome on OS X. Just like how it did on Windows. Chrome, I'm saving that for the space.
July 20th, 2012 11:14 PMArcherI just know how to do things both ways now. It's a bit like being bilingual. :D You approach them separately, rather than translating ideas from one to another.
Yeah, Safari is just underwhelming. Not horrible, there's just no compelling reason to use it over Chrome/Firefox.
I'm the opposite. I've become very accustomed to high framerates and resolutions. Graphics themselves don't really bother me as long as they're nice and sharp.
July 20th, 2012 07:41 AMTwiggyI guess I prefer doing some things the old way in the end, since I don't want to somehow get myself stuck for the times where I'm on someone else's Windows laptop.
I also left most, if not all of OS X's native gestures on, by the way.
Seems like Safari is made so that they could tick the "have browser" check box.
I'm now a very happy OS X user. No more spinning beach balls of doom, huh? (Safari likes to hang.)
I've always wondered whether gaming a long time with anemic GPUs (PS1 > GeForce 2 MX > Radeon 9250 > Radeon Xpress 1100 > DS) meant that I'm very tolerant to bad graphics and frame rate. My first real top-of-the-line GPU was a GeForce 9800 GTX+. xD It certainly meant smoking the spec sheets back then! For some reason, I also got something with a nonstandard design - most 9800s are dual-slot, while mine is single-slot. 60 FPS was awesome!
