Nice to see Biden fixing America...

 Great to see Joe Biden fixing up the USA after the horror of The Fat Sociopath, to be fair, hopefully the USA will become less of a threat to the rest of the world and regain their respect in the eyes of outsiders! And hopefully there will also be more bromace memes and less riots on The Capitol Building! 😃👍

Flash Player EOL Final Minutes (12am GMT, Dec 31st 2020)

Goodbye Flash...

 


Since 1996, Flash has been integral to many parts of the web, and you have definitely used it at least once, whether you know it or not, sadly, this means losing most of internet history.


There is hope however, people like Newgrounds and Flashpoint have made Flash Player emulation plugins to allow you to interact with Flash media past the end-of-life deadline, Ruffle is an excellent project which doesn’t support all versions of Flash yet, but is in constant development in the hobbyist dev community.


My plan is to try my best to be playing Flash games right up until the plug-in cuts out at midnight.


It’s a shame Flash had to die unnecessarily, it has served us well...


There is a live countdown timer on my website at: https://nostalgia-planet.neocities.org


Thank you.

Applause to Channel 4 for the Queen's Speech parody!

 It's Christmas 2020 and today at 3pm, Channel 4, here in the UK, aired this hilarious deepfake parody of the Queen's regular Christmas speech! (The real one was aired as planned on ITV and BBC channels).

It showed the Queen doing TikTok dances, discussing the Prince Andrew/Epstein sex scandal and much, much more.

Some viewers enjoyed it! Taking to Twitter to express their opinions, unfortunately, some people took the joke the wrong way and decided it was offensive (which it wasn't).

Personally, I always thought they should show Die Hard 2 instead, but maybe I'm just insensitive.


But probably not.

'The $40bn US-based games giant EA has ignited a bidding war for Britain's Codemasters'

 Dear EA,


LEAVE BRITAIN'S ONLY DECENT MAINSTREAM GAMES COMPANY ALONE!!!


I don't want DIRT and F1 to be riddled with bleeding microtransactions, unless you're going to make a microtransaction-free remaster of Colin McRae Rally for the PS1...
