Anyway, Dollar General had one of those AtGames portable Sega Genesis consoles for sale. Normally $40, it was reduced to $28. I already had an older version of the handheld, and I was going to play it a few days ago. Turns out a small piece of plastic broke on the Li-ion battery cover, and it won't stay on anymore. I never even abused the handheld or subjected it to rough treatment, AFAIK.

So, I went out and got the newer handheld. Only differences is that Mega Man and Street Fighter II games were swapped out for all three Genesis Mortal Kombat games, and the unit is White-on-gray colors. It's the same in all other aspects. The sound emulation hasn't even been improved. Ah well.

I'm just waiting now for the Menards Black Friday ad leak. Any day now.... I hope.

I know, I just really wish David would finally get over his fears and grudges, and have a better time for himself and his friends.

I admit, this image might not be too compressed for slow connections, but I don't have any sort of Photoshop-equivalent installed on Patsy at the moment. Anyway, a big Win10 update was released, and Patsy now has it.

One of the big differences: you don't need third party hacks for colored titlebars anymore. Win10 can now do so by default, but the color choice is limited to the accent color that you choose.

Most of the changes appear to be under-the-hood and cosmetic. Apparently the updated Win10 is supposed to boot faster.

Oh, and one big thing... during the update, Speccy (a system information app) was uninstalled as it was deemed "incompatible". People are also reporting that other apps like CPU-Z are also getting uninstalled during setup, and only getting notified after the update finishes. :/

And yes, Speccy works just fine with Patsy. But some report that the Win10 update causes Speccy to BSOD their systems, or it just freezes. So, it may not be compatible on all updated systems.
I love foxes, especially the one in my avatar.

I'm glad you're now able to change titlebar colours in Windows 10, though that would mean another goalpost moved for those who develop visual styles. I've also heard about a proposal wherein Control Panel would be dropped from future builds, but that might involve quite a transition as some applets are written with the legacy Win32 settings panel in mind.

Is Asus Vivostick released yet? If not, is there any official release date? I'm supposed to write a presentation about its history and developer, but how the heck can I write a history about a thing that is not even released yet?

My sympathies. I hope you will eventually find the strength to move on. Life is too short to be spent grieving.

Based on a quick Google Search, Asus has given no release date for the Vivostick. :/ Perhaps you can use the various news articles relating to it's pre-release state, and perhaps focus on similar efforts such as the Intel Compute Stick?

My assignment is to write a presentation on the history and developer of both Asus Vivostick and Intel Compute Stick. I'm already done for the Intel Compute Stick, but all info I got on Asus Vivostick that it's not released yet.

Guess I'll write about the hands-on reviews. Though those I see so far are more like preview on the casing.

I have a number of pets, and I'll never forget any of them.

I won't spend the rest of my life grieving, but I never will really "move on". My heart is full of too much love. I'm building a memorial over the grave site, and I've played this song over the grave.

Oh, Mobile.

Could someone please make the video show up?

I wouldn't make three messages in a row if I could figure out how to edit on Mobile.

P.S.
I know the song lyrics can get a little funny regarding a snake (ex., "put you on your feet"). A little humor does a sad heart good, and besides, it's metaphorical.

Don't worry about the multiple posts. I have been doing that lately myself, but that is because of a lack of a person named David. I digress..

About YouTube Embedding. When you use the Youtube tags, you need to ensure that the "http" part of the URL does not read "https". I learned if you use "https" in the URL, the video will not embed for some reason. You also need to use the full YouTube URL (<!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.youtube.com">www.youtube.com</a><!-- w -->) and not the mobile link (m.youtube.com). Since you are on a mobile device, the latter instruction may be impossible to do. It may not even be necessary at all as I never tried it.
