Windows 8 Big Icons

Why not?
In the 2012, big tiles with little icons?
Long names? Text could move. Too "marquee from '90s"? Maybe...

Personally I think MS could add two display modes:
- big icons
- small icons
so if you have big beautiful icons you can choose to view them.

These small icons make me feel sick.

And yeah, I have too much free time.

The Thing from 2002 #2 full post

Ok, game over. (Previous post)

The graphic is not bad for the year 2002, the gameplay is also good but sometimes your allies are very dumb.
The funny part is the low trust in each other and you can earn trust in your members helping them, giving them weapons and testing your blood (if you are a ... thing).
You can also aiming their heads to earn a "different trust". :-D
Fundamentally your allies are MEAT. Sweet burning meat. Useful, but meat.
The medic can cure you, engineers can fix things etc...

There are many leves... so... screenshots time? C'mon!!

There is a bunch of screens, so click to view the full post!!

Windows gadgets, how can I lock them?

I miss the ability to lock gadgets on desktop.
With "lock" I mean avoiding that the bar appears, move them by mistake, etc ...

It's only a mockup
Another little good thing to add in the next Windows? (If gadgets will survive)

Windows 7: something is missing

In Vista and Seven some utilities are missing.
Remember that you could change file types icons, set open options or simply un-associate file types?
Obviously on Windows Vista and Seven you can't do this without digging on the system registry.
So the only solution is download and use some 3rd-party programs.

With this tool you can remove the file types you desire.

You can also use the "assoc" command in DOS, like:
assoc .txt=   (to delete the txt file association)

With this tool you can edit file types (icon, behavior, etc...)

I don't know why Microsoft decided to remove these options, but I don't like that there aren't some tools/utilities out-of-the-box.

Smartphones in the 1991

In the mind of some guy...

In 1991 there were technologies to make this device?
I don't think so.

But looking at the old patents always has its charms.

The Thing... from 2002 #1

Few days ago I saw "The Thing", the movie dated 2012, and it's not bad, but... there isn't the charm of "The Thing" (1982 Carpenter's The Thing).
I should remember you that the 1982 version of The Thing directed by Carpenter is a remake of "The Thing from another world" (1951) based on a novella by Campbell.

So... I know that there is a game based on the movie (1982 movie) and dated 2002.

So... I have it now. And I'm playing it!

More screens, etc... when I'll end it.

Dead Space is dead

I installed Dead Space after 2/3 years because I never ended this game and some days ago a voice in my head said "play and finish it".
My last savegames put me after the infirmary... ok!
I love this game: there is no Hud, good action moments, good plot, good management of lights/shadows.

After the end of the game I restart it with the Level 6 suite... so much fun!

So... it's screenshots time! (They start from my last old savegame)

Screenshots are a large number so click the title or the following link to see the full post... (if you never played the game... spoilers inside)

I spent hours in this website. :-)

Developers, developers, developers

Windows Vista and Windows Seven are in this world since 2007 and 2009.
And since 2007 many games come out for PC.

So... developers... can you use this fuc**** directory?
Yeah, I'm talking about "Saved Games" directory!!

I'm a bit annoyed to find savegames all around the harddisk.

Like Minecraft (2009-2010):


Like Dead Space (2008):

Jurassic Park Trespasser

During my research of old and unknown games I stumbled across on:

Jurassic Park: Trespasser

I retrieved it.

It's based on "The Lost World" and was released in 1998 (I didn't play this game at those times).

The start location...

It looked nice, but the controls made ​​me change my mind soon.
After an hour of play I have a headache that deformed my skull

I feel sick.

You are a cute barrel... cuuuteeee

With the left mouse button you can use your hand/arm and with the right mouse button you can pick up objects.
If you move your mouse you move the girl's hand/arm, so you can slap your enemies with a wood stick or something else.
Yeah, good idea, but... my eyes, my brain...

Ops, I'm dead.
 It's a strange FPS, I called it FPBV (first person boobs viewer):
