      What kind of on the spot OCR program do you have that scans this kind of thing faster than just typing it out while staring at it?
      Tell me step by step how you handle this situation in GNU+Linux or whatever you use.

    We have games, released in 202x, including this year that can't play VIDEOS correctly.
    You know, a series of frames.
    The same exact task a philips CD-I or sega CD do.
    Maybe we should bundle consoles with a 68000 to play videos or something.

      Some crafty frickers figured out how to shove videos with voice acting into Link to the Past on SNES and it can be played on cartridge.

      Well damn. The Windows equivalent of holding L and R on a completed fortress.
      I could have gone my whole life without learning that. With technology getting dumbed down more and more each year, you think they would have slapped a "click to copy" button these boxes by now.

        I haven't used any of them yet. Do I need to use cygwin for C? I'm following Zed Shaw's "Learn C The Hard Way" and this video:

        and it gives me this:
        https://pastes.io/fosoa0mxnp
        and when I click Next, it gives me this:
        https://pastes.io/gejymfuhqb,
        where it says it's gonna uninstall a bunch of shit.
        Do I want that? How do I resolve that?
        Is one of these:

            This guy and his books are rather infamous in the programming community. You'll indeed be learning C the hard way, but it will be hard not because you'll learn more than you would from other books, but because you'll have to cope with poor pedagogy and bad ordering of topics. He also has the habit of making his books really agenda-driven, saying controversial things and pretending that they're obvious truths, and then lashing out on his blog when this is pointed out, giving us gems such as these:
            >But C? C’s dead. It’s the language for old programmers who want to debate section A.6.2 paragraph 4 of the undefined behavior of pointers. Good riddance. I’m going to go learn Go.
            >Currently you cannot run Python 2 inside the Python 3 virtual machine. Since I cannot, that means Python 3 is not Turing Complete and should not be used by anyone.
            If you're a beginner and want to learn C, I think that K. N. King's C Programming: A Modern Approach would definitely be the best book these days. If you don't know where to get it, I can find you a link to the free PDF from the C general.
            If your appetite is still not satisfied after this book, you have
            >Jens Gustedt's Modern C
            >Peter van der Linden's Expert C Programming
            Also, any particular reason you want to use Cygwin? Cygwin is useful, but it also gives you the limitations and potential problems of both Linux and Windows. If you want to practice traditional POSIX C programming but don't want to go through the trouble of creating a dual boot setup, a VM may serve you better. Grab VirtualBox, create a VM with a generous allocation of hardware, install some edition of Linux Mint inside it, install Guest Additions too, and run it on fullscreen. Performance should be good if your computer isn't ancient. Or you could use WSL2, that would work too. A VM will probably give you a smoother experience than fricking with Cygwin.

            Then I'm guessing that he wrote it years ago when Cygwin was a better option. These days, most people who want Linux on Windows will be better off running actual Linux (VirtualBox/WSL2/etc.) than fricking around with Cygwin.
            Links:
            King (recommended first book): https://files.catbox.moe/a875c2.pdf
            Gustedt: https://files.catbox.moe/xeb93p.pdf
            And for Van Der Linden's book, I haven't found anything higher quality than the LibGen downloads.

    Might make this it's own thread, but is there a simple way to turn off searching the web, when you hit the windows key? Searching for local files always takes so much longer than it should, because it always prioritizes a goddamn internet search before looking for what I want.
    I remember doing it a few years ago, and fricking with Regedit. Is that really the only way?
