Desktop Android

Hey y'all


I have been thinking about Linux and the fact that it hasnt put much of a dent into Windows' dominance. But the answer has been right in front of us the whole time. Its about software. Now I am not going to say that Linux devs are bad programmers, they are not; but they do not know how to make a good UI that normal people can follow.


That is where Android comes in. It was designed just to do that; Google took Linux and put a good UI on it. And it became popular, very popular, and a lot of money is made in selling its software.


Linux on the desktop is a dead dream. Its never going to happen. But we have a chance, right here, right now, to make an OS so good that Microsoft would have real competition on the desktop. There are a few Android Distros out there, but none of them are doing it right. I think it can be done. There were those who said that no one could make a GUI. Look at how wrong they were. Its a matter of who has the best ideas that will bring in people into using your OS. It can be done. 

Y'all, you guys, youse, what say you?

I use y'all, or omit the apostrophe to just yall. And I am a northern boy in the United States, not southern.


The reason is simple: I respect women and dont let my disdain of southern culture rule the way that I speak. If there is a good word, then I use it. Y'all is simply a very good word that allows for a genderless plural. Youse isnt that popular and likely wont make a dent in our language.

Can we revise avatar rules?

15 February 2015 - 10:00 PM

A few years ago animated GIFs were banned from InsanelyMac. This was done due to people using dialup


However, this makes absolutely no sense as you can limit the size of avatar uploads.


A 100KB animated GIF is the same size as a 100KB JPG, yet one is banned and the other is not. Bandwidth arguments are not valid because they are the same size


It boggles the mind that we still have this rule even after all these years. We are supposed to be a group of people who are computer wizzes yet some of us dont understand that a 100KB transfer is the same regardless of the file type. It makes us look very foolish like we dont know what we are doing.

NPCI fix available?

Google gives me nothing for Yosemite


Clover patches that I have tried do nothing


This flag disables AppleHDA.kext, so not having it would improve my experience.



Help on converting hex to x64 binary

20 December 2014 - 06:41 PM

Been browsing Rehabman's IOath3kfrmwr.kext to see if I could do something similar for my wifi card


While browsing through the source, I saw how he inserted the firmware as x64 binary data


I have a firmware image, but I am unsure of how to convert it into the 0x00 format


Attached is the file I am attempting to convert


Any help is appreciated
