The only GUI API that is mildly stable and worth a damn is the Win32 API. There, I said it.

Everything else is utter garbage.

Also, never use any "cross-platform" open source libraries that are primarily developed on Linux.

Guess what? They only actually work on Linux...

Hey, just a heads up: if you were thinking of developing or porting a desktop app on/to macOS, don't bother. It's an unstable (API-wise) heap of shit that breaks constantly with every tiny update that Apple pushes.

I regret ever supporting macOS.


I'm loving seeing all of these pictures of text messages where workers are standing up against their bosses. ✊✊✊


My 4.5 inch Newtonian telescope can easily resolve Jupiter's Galilean moons and some stripes. Saturn's rings are just barely visible with it, but identifiable.

After all these years, I still need to resort to SkyGlobe for any sort of reliable amateur astronomy... I've never found a replacement.

Had a chance to spy Jupiter and Saturn through the telescope this evening! Look at those positions!

I freakin' hate computers...

@darius I once found someone with my exact problem with installing an OS on a forum after hours of searching only to discover the question was posted by myself like 8 years earlier with no valid answer…

@niconiconi I had (well, have, I suppose…) this graphics card with its wacky purple extension cable. I used to pull video off my camcorder over FireWire with it.

I'm pretty happy with the animated gif on the landing page. It was a pain to make as it isn't something I'm usually doing. Considering that all the images are from an analog capture card, it turned out nice!

I preordered an game today…. I’ve never done that before.
