    You’ve any actual sources here, or are you just slinging unfounded speculation?

    DriftMan reacted to Spindel in Has long term bluetooth radiation been studied on VR headsets?   
    BT is around 2,4 GHz so microwave spectrum and thus non ionizing. 
     
    What can happen is that it heats the tissue and there might be possible long term effects of heating human tissue up, but in that case you have other things to worry about more since we are talking about 0,01 - 100 mW. You get more micro wave radiation from being out in the sun and for reference a normal microwave blasts your food with around 700-800 W and besides the sun also blasts you with scary amounts of heating IR radiation AND ionizing ultra violet radiation.

    Oh and I suggest you to check the 9-cell batteries, and the 13" display mod
    There are quite few mods for that laptops, make sure you replace the thermal paste for a good one so it doesn't throttle

    DriftMan got a reaction from PlayStation 2 in Is a Internet term for this?   
    non-indexed websites lol
    google is not the internet, google is not even the public internet, google is just a program that looks part of the internet, index it like on a phone directory and it doesn't even show all the indexed directories if it doesn't suit google's policies
     
    edit: because google is not the internet, you can still use other 5 search engines that probably show you the indexed websites you wanna see

    Why do you try so hard to get scammed?
    The worst part is when you ask others to fall for it too
    But actually the worst part is that you are new here and you could probably be the scammer

    Nah, it was just that I felt like the OP was being unfair comparing something totally possible and praised in the era, but IMO "too hard" to accomplish something as amazing now
    (with this comment ->)
    And I was pointing out (asking about how much about software development he knows, if I had to use ELI5 text or a bit more in-depth explanations to not sound condescendant) that with all the power of today's hardware, to make such amazing demoscenes or software needs a lot lot lot lot of effort, as you could probably do a simple 144p demoscene but for today's standard 4K is... Well I couldn't imagine how long would it take to code something like that.
     
    For example, I think one of the most amazing projects right now in terms of maximizing the hardware lifespan is Puppy Linux, but there are less and less low powered devices while people want more and more features every year, as both eras (back then vs now) are totally different IMHO they are just too concerned about FOSS development than actually demoscenes.
     
    Now that I've read my post again, I think I haven't expressed myself properly, not a big fan of big posts as I tend to repeat myself a lot when writing in English.
     
    But yeah, those hobbyists are still alive, just doing other stuff like the nostalgic emulators and modding we are so fond of. I tend to dive into ESP32 development from time to time as I've studied the embedded systems degree, I think there are more fields right now so it's a bit spread, with less people in animation but way more in dozens of different new fields
     
    Edit: specially sorry towards @Spindel if my post looked like harassment, I think we might have understood each other posts
