    BingoFishy got a reaction from Mr.Humble in How to keep my cat off my tower!   
    Put spikes on top.
    Maybe try covering it with a blanket (if you don't have any exhausts up there). Your cat'll still sit there but it won't press the power button or scratch  your case.
    I've heard tape works well.

    BingoFishy got a reaction from Technomancer__ in How to Use Your WiiMote and Nunchuck as a Mouse!   
    Please bear with me, as this is my first guide. Feel free to give me constructive criticism.
    Hello all! Today I'm going to show you how to
    Actually you can use pretty much any controller. Non-nintendo controllers don't even need the first download.
    First and foremost:
    This is NOT a guide on how to make it so you can wave your WiiMote around and have it move the mouse on the screen. If you want to do that, there's an instructibles here and a How-to-geek guide here. You can also use a different custom driver found in the first link under "What do I need?". I've found the GlovePIE method quite finicky (doesn't work all the time), but YMMV. This is a guide on how to use the joystick (or whatever buttons you like) as your mouse and/or keyboard. I've found that there is little to no perceptible input latency.
    This is a guide for Windows 8.1 and 10 only. However, I'm guessing it won't be hard to figure out what to do for Windows 7 based on this.

    Why would you want to do this?
    The WiiMote and Nunchuck are significantly more ergonomic that any mouse, and most controllers. Unlike the latter two, you can wrap your hand all the way around a WiiMote or joystick which I find very comfortable. You can also control your computer across the room, but without needing a surface like you would for a wireless mouse. Finally, it looks really cool and you can show it off to your friends.

    What do I need?
    You will need four things:
    1) A custom WiiMote driver made by Julian Löhr. You can download this here (download gamepad).                                                      
    2) A software called JoyToKey. You can download it here.                                                                                                                         
    3) A WiiMote                                                                                                                                                                                                
    4) Bluetooth                                                                                                                                                                                                 
              5) Nunchuck (recommended)                                                                                                                                                                                
    Step 1:
    Download the driver. Once the driver is downloaded, unzip it and run TinyInstaller.exe. The author of the driver unfortunately does not have a Code Signing Certificate yet, so you'll need to disable
    Driver Signature Verification before connecting your WiiMote. If you don't know how to do this, How-To-Geek made a handy guide you can use here. 
    Step 2:
    Once you've disabled Driver Signature Verification and restarted, connect your WiiMote. To do this, open up Bluetooth in System Settings → Devices → Bluetooth. For newer WiiMotes, you will need to connect to your computer using the button on the back (possible under the battery cover). However, for old WiiMotes without MotionPlus built in, you can just hold down ➀ and ➁. You should see something like Nintendo RVL-CNT-01 Show up. -TR will be added to the end of it if you're using a newer WiiMote. Click [Pair] or [Connect]. A popup dialog will show, asking for a password. Fortunately, you can just click Next without inputting a password. After this, you may see the word Connecting... following some spinning dots. I find that you can just click [Cancel] and the remote will still connect. After clicking cancel, a bar will appear under the WiiMote, and you can let it finish "loading." To check to see if the WiiMote was connected successfully, press the Windows button, and search USB. Click "Set Up USB Game Controllers." Your WiiMote should be listed there.
    Step 3:
    Here's the fun part! Run JoyToKey, and press a button on your controller. The button you press will be highlighted in yellow in the program, so you know what button corresponds to what. You can easily double-click the desired button you want to change and set it to what you want it to do. I have made my own configuration for normal mouse use, as well as for the game Portal 2. The downloads will be listed at the bottom.
    -You CAN use this without JoyToKey - however, I have not been able to get it to work with Steam Big Picture Mode or Portal 2.
    -According to the JoyToKey website, it won't work with some programs
    Known issues:
    ...Copied from Julian Loehr's webpage, with a couple edits
    -When powering off the Wii Remote or moving out of the Bluetooth range, Windows won’t recognize the Wii Remote is gone. Manually remove the remote in the Bluetooth settings.
    -When shutting down Windows, the Wii Remote Device won’t be ejected and is still present on next start up. Manually remove the remote in the Bluetooth settings.
    -When using other Bluetooth devices, they may stop working, until the Wii Remote is disconnected.
    -Other Programs that need to communicate directly with the Wii Remote may not work.
    -Trigger axis split, renders the last two versions of the driver unusable for GTA V.
    -Incompatible with the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack
    -Driver Signature Verification
    Other issues:
    -Sometimes the WiiMote will not work properly with JoyToKey. A simple fix to this is to click Options at the top, then Configure. Click Advanced Setting for Each Device at the top, and move around the Joystick or press a few buttons, then close it an everything should work properly.
    Preset Configurations:
    Mouse.cfg (Uses Nunchuck as mouse. Feel free to edit both of these however you wish.)
    Portal.cfg (Raise sensitivity in-game. By default it will be very slow so you can get around menus, etc. better.)
    Need any other help, or have suggestions? Just post it below!

    I'm planning on making a video (and adding helpful images) showing this off (as well as a walkthrough) in the future.

    BingoFishy reacted to ProjectBox153 in can a school(usa) sue for server space use   
    It's a school server. You're not at school to play games, and that's likely against their computer access policy as well. Just get the games off and you're not in trouble. It is their storage, so if they feel you're misusing it of course they can wipe it.

    BingoFishy reacted to AshleyAshes in Why Did this person approach me ? He was going to stab me right?   
    So... 'Hands In Pockets' + 'Squinting' = 'Going To Stab You'
    Or even, considering this quote 'both Hands in pockets are a no FUK no because that’s a threat already'
    'Hands In Pockets' = 'A Threat'.
    Alternative, wild, totally out of left field take: You might be a paranoid idiot.

    BingoFishy reacted to dizmo in Why Did this person approach me ? He was going to stab me right?   
    Did you see a knife? If not, why would you assume he was going to stab you?
    How do you know he kept looking back at you? To know that you'd have to have been looking at him, right? Maybe he was thinking the exact same thing as you. "Why the fuck does this kid keep looking at me?!"
    As @D4nt3 said, it's winter. You don't think maybe his hands were in his pockets because it's cold? I walk around with my hands in my pockets all the time. Sometimes with my hood up. It doesn't mean I'm going to attack someone.
    How horribly paranoid do you have to be to think that?
    You seem to be throwing a lot of assumptions on someone else, when really, they could have been thinking the exact same thing about you. It sounds rather pathetic tbh.
  12. Agree
    BingoFishy reacted to D4nt3 in Why Did this person approach me ? He was going to stab me right?   
    You're probably overreacting. He probably had his hands in his pocket because it's cold.

    BingoFishy reacted to Ωhmbreon in Why Did this person approach me ? He was going to stab me right?   
    In cities, just look forward and keep walking. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't, and I'm sure you didn't want to stick around long enough to find out.

    BingoFishy reacted to Godlygamer23 in The IEEE 802.3bs Ethernet Specification has arrived - Possible 400Gbps - Wow...   
    It's not like a consumer would be able to use that speed to actually download GTA V in that amount of time, because we're limited by other things.

    BingoFishy reacted to BuckGup in Wheres Air Pressure Investigation Part 2?   
    That wasn't the test. The test was to see if positive, negative, or neutral air pressure changed the amount of dust in the case dramatically. So moving has no change on it as they all were moved at the same time to the same location
