Hey, y'know all the computational resources being donated by regular folk to projects like folding@home to try and help fast-track research necessary for developing vaccines and treatments for covid-19?
Imagine how effective it would be to redirect all the computation of the online ad "industry" to the problem...
...and then ask why they aren't doing so.
Fuck the megacorps, fuck their boards of directors, and fuck their supporters. They give no shits.
@kensp Ahh :). Well emulating that is way more affordable anyway. But they have cracked down on the ROM sites which makes it harder to get some decent ROMs
A few years back I've modded an NES controller and put a raspberry pi 0w into there: https://magpi.raspberrypi.org/articles/gamepad-nes-controller
It's actually pretty cool, since the modded controller is connected to the gpio of the Rpi so that you can still use it!
Odroid Go Advance has potential to do a lot of cool portable computing things beyond gaming which is a big reason why I got one and am excited about it. I hope it will eventually get PSP nearly perfect after devs have time to optimize the emulator some more.
The PSP is such a great handheld. Retro gaming handhelds have become pretty popular but the PSP I think outdoes them all in gaming capabilities and is very inexpensive. It is neck and neck with the Odroid Go Advance. Advance wins in shear number of systems it can emulate and other capabilities but PSP isn't far off and even wins in the specific cases of PS1 and PSP(obviously). PSP wins on affordability and convenience.
More PSP fun.
We simply cannot say this enough:
1. Turn off your location services.
2. Turn off your phone completely when you don’t need it on.
WE are allowing THEM to create a virtual police state. #COVID19 tracking is simply a building block of systemic real-time civilian surveillance.
At the heart of this technology is money, not altruism. These companies are not non-profits. Their profit ≠ your freedom.
You control your #privacy through your choices.
Not actually a bot.
