Re: All Things UNIX/Unix-Like/FOSS/etc.

That makes sense, a gaming machine runs Windows and anything else runs Linux or whatever fits best. However, what do you do with a machine that is both for gaming and home office? You're now stuck on Windows for office stuff too. Linux is good for VMs, you can even run Linux programs in a seamless m...

Re: Dungeon Siege I and II

Good tip about ripping, I have some Blurays but no Bluray player so need to do this.

Re: All Things UNIX/Unix-Like/FOSS/etc.

I entirely agree with your thoughts on BSD and the BSD License. I use OpenBSD on my PC Engines router and love it. However, the driver situation for OpenBSD is dire and that is what rules out using it as a desktop and gaming OS. The driver situation is mainly down to man hours, there are plenty of o...

Re: All Things UNIX/Unix-Like/FOSS/etc.

Compiling from source makes a lot of sense. You cut out the middle-man between you and the author. You can often reduce the number of dependencies during build time. You understand *exactly* what is installed on your machines and it's configured perfectly. The problem, of course, is you are taking o...

Re: Starcraft and Warcraft III Battle Chests

Reminds me of when I bought WoW: Cataclysm. I came into the expansion late so had a look on eBay for a copy. I found the Collector's Edition for something stupid like £15 each. So I bought two copies, used one and kept the other sealed in a cupboard. Just checked, people are asking for £100-£200 for...

Re: Starcraft and Warcraft III Battle Chests

Nice, I never played SC or WC, probably too busy playing Doom, Quake and then Tribes :D. I started playing WC3 to get some of the back story to World of Warcraft, I shall have to revist it myself!

Re: Saving/Archiving Forum Posts

In Linux you can use wget: wget -rkp http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/ This works well on simple sites like Arreat Summit. That command recursively gets the whole website, gets the page requisites and converts links to work on the local files. Having local files makes it so nice when looking thi...

Re: Searching for Diablo II content but filtering out D2R

I often put "Diablo 2", in quotes, to make sure it's searching for the whole phrase. Testing it however, it seems these all produce similar results: Diablo 2 -resurrected Diablo II -resurrected "Diablo 2" -resurrected "Diablo II" -resurrected Google is quite smart at re...
