Hello Hackateers! It’s time for our weekly open thread, in which you detail all of your hacking activities...no not that kind of hacking (...or maybe?)...and ask for advice.
Game theory plays a key role in cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. Whether it’s the payoff matrix, Nash equilibrium, the prisoner’s dilemma, Grim trigger, Schelling points or bounded rationality, game theory concepts have big implications for blockchains and cryptocurrencies.
When experiencing data loss, most of us immediately jump into the panic mode: we begin to nervously surf the Web in search for a lifesaving piece of advice or just call someone from the contacts list desperately begging for help. Sure thing, it’s quite natural to freak out realizing that your precious files have just…
Here is a way to get up and running with a new install of Firefox on Windows. Assuming you keep a backup copy of your custom profile folder, get it and keep it handy.
Install Firefox like always, say yes or no or whatever it asks— it doesn’t matter— you only want Fox to create a default profile with a name you can work…
Tell me, how often did you feel thrilled to participate in a cool workshop (in-person or online) to find your self disconnecting (figuratively or literally) within just 15 minutes?
Hello, friends, once again, to our weekly dose of open thread here on Hackerspace! It’s Veterans Day for all of you out there.
I got the following message when trying to “shrink” a “volume” on a secondary hdd.

Under the scorching sun of a drought-stricken Cape Town, there sits Africa’s greenest hotel, Hotel Verde. Brightened by natural lighting and driven by the most advanced green technologies, the hotel strives to minimize its carbon footprint, including its water consumption.
Hey all, or whoever’s here.
My bluetooth exercise on W7/10 has failed. The os says that my comp doesn’t have bt, though it does. W7 sees it, but won’t allow me to install drivers for it, so it sits there with a yellow triangle in device manager— when it’s there at all. Something is broken, and it may not be my fault.…
Good Friday to you all, Hackateers. Time for another installment of This Old Hous.. Hackerspace Open Thread!
Hi Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, Clashtalk, CrossTalk, Gawrker, and The Salad Bowl, how are you fairing this fine fall evening? I’ve been pulling late/all nighters in the lab helping a friend on a project, so I’ve been eating salad for dinner for two nights and will…
Coinbase founder Fred Ehrsam once wrote that virtual reality could be blockchain’s “killer app.” A biotech software company headquartered on the UC San Diego campus agrees. Nanome, which focuses on VR applications for science and technology applications, has blended the two on its blockchain…
Well, it’s that time of year again! Time to drink while the kids walk around doing their thing. I’m a creature of habit, so I’ll probably be drinking some hard apple cider with the spooky tree.
It appears that in the Fall Creator’s Update, MS removed the ability to hide file names for pics and videos. I can’t find the option *anywhere*. And man have I looked.
I don’t mean hiding extensions, rather the feature that makes pic and video thumbnails look tidier when you open their folders.
I can do this for any…
Hello, Hackateers! Welcome to the all-new, redesigned Open Thread!
A hard drive, that small constantly whirring box inside of your PC, knows a lot about you and your life: it can show how fun you spent your last vacation, your favorite video you’ve watched too many times to count (but still laugh and cry every damn time), and even that new recipe of finger-licking good pasta you’ve…
Hello Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, Clashtalk, CrossTalk, Gawrker, and The Salad Bowl and welcome back to the pan-kinja Thursday cross thread. We’ve been on a quasi hiatus ‘cause of holidays and stuff, so catch us up on all the things. And if you’re new, welcome!
