  • I'm not sure I'd agree with that. The abstractions we've added on over the years hasn't really improved any productivity (probably made it worse in fact). And I'm not convinced PCs are any more user friendly now than they were in the 80s.

        Just think about the hours of work time you waste each year answering e-mails? Or what about the detrimental effect that social networks have had on some peoples productivity (he says on a messageboard during work hours ). There's definitely more distractions these days.

            Possibly. But I spend most of my days in a command line environment writing code, so from my perspective things haven't changed much aside the number of layers of abstraction.

              My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

                  • Considering the backwards logic of uncompressing something and then putting it on YouTube, this is very impressive. The difference is very noticeable.

                      You can't "uncompress" the music. These files are just at a higher sample rate than the ones on the N64 cartridge.

                      Ironically, the audio files on the N64 cart were uncompressed (but often low bitrate) where as videos on YouTube are compressed.

                      Anyhow, this might interest some: http://www.vgmonline.net/the-truth-b...ed-soundtrack/

                          I remember being blown away by this intro. This was one of the first games I played using a 3d card.

                            I still rank that as one of my favourite PC games. It was epic. The music was epic, the graphics were epic, the game play was epic, the levels were epic. And everything fitted in together perfectly. Awesome game.
