Sorry About Computer

New decade, new nonsense

Wallace & Gromit was an early XBLA game and was required to launch from memory cards. There was a crash bug when launching off 256mb cards, but not 512mb cards. So we just added a 20mb sound file to the game, making it too big for 256mb cards. Passed cert no problem after that!

Chrome crashes for me every couple of days on Android on the Pixel 7 Pro (with all of its 12GB of RAM), so I reported at least 6 crashes to @ChromiumDev.

In return, all I got was: you're using Accessibility, so lolfuckyou, Status: WontFix.

Not a good look, @googlechrome.

Metroid Prime Game Dev Story - The One Where We Fridged a GameCube. Shortly after Prime shipped, Nintendo told us that a "bad batch" of GameCube CPU's shipped, and apparently Prime was the only game that misbehaved on them. We saw videos and it was clear what was going on. 1/7

A data spike like this tells you your data is broken. Iโ€™m willing to bet they ask people their date of birth and a large proportion pick the year 2000 as a shortcut. There arenโ€™t really 2x as many 22-year-olds as 23-year-olds playing switch.

Itโ€™s pretty simple: Google Meet (original) was previously Meet, which was the rebranded Hangouts Meet. Meet has been merged with Google Duo, which replaced Google Hangouts. Google Duo has been renamed Meet, and Meet has been temporarily named Google Meet (original), for clarity
