Gaming/Tech Thread #99 - Assorted Headlines For Geeks & Nerds

Just a reminder that soon I’ll be diminishing the number of these threads to probably once a month (outside of major hardware announcements like a new console or perhaps major tech news).

There is nothing really major this week, hence the more generic headline

What Are We Playing This Week?

Thanks to my 2 yr. old, I played a larger assortment of Atari titles on my Atari XEGS while also continuing my quest on Wyvern Tales for the Atari Lynx. I also dug up Manticore - Galaxy on Fire on my Switch to make a tiny bit of progress there. How about you?

Dave Cullen describes what is going on here as SJWs begin to push out straight white males from contributing to the platform. The problem is that this could end up wrecking the OS - which is used by Android and many web servers - for a long time to come. Here’s one example of a developer already ending his support for the Steam controller Linux build.

New Polymer Coating Can Cool Down Just About Anything - Engineers have developed a new spray-on coating that can cool down the covered object by using a principle known as passive daytime radiative cooling. You’ll have to trudge through some GLOBALL WAHRMING nonsense in this article that gets into more detail about it, but aside from that, there are some interesting applications…I wonder if such a coating could work on the Venus rover that NASA is working on as mentioned in the headlines above 😉 You can also insta-trigger an SJW just by the title of this video alone…
