I re-read Stephen King's On Writing regularly, it's fascinating. At the moment I'm reading George Saunders A Swim In A Pond In The Rain. If you don't know George Saunders he writes brilliant short stories and this is a book version of the course he teaches at Syracuse uni. I think its going to be an...

Can OBS stream a virtualbox machine running the DOS game? I don't know, just throwing out an idea. Might be worth looking into.

Yes. This is one of the things that makes me fairly certain I have ASD, although I am undiagnosed. I was baffled, in my late teens and twenties as to why people liked pubs and bars. I couldn't understand how they were able to hold conversations in places like that. If there's more than one conversat...

I don't see how it's different to some men finding massive breasts or backsides sexually attractive. Or indeed roid munching females. I know people get very upset about generalisations like the one in the question but I'm not sure it's entirely useless to consider questions like these. Human beings,...

I'm not all women so I can't say for sure. I'm not even 'a' woman so this may have no value at all. I suspect the answer is going to be "Some do and some don't." And those that do, possibly not all the time, and not by everyone. I can suggest a reason why some women might, sometimes and by...

Thankyou for this. I hadn't tried that before. I scored 33 so that was illuminating. Not conclusive I understand but another piece of evidence if I do pursue a diagnosis further.

I love mucking around with Linux and would love to have it for my main OS but I use a laptop in a dock with a dual monitor setup and I've never been able to get the drivers working correctly. And I've been using MS Word and Adobe Photoshop most of my adult life and just can't get used to open source...

Hello. I am a writer. I used to write short stories, I finished the first draft of a novel which I occasionally return to in the hopes of getting it to make sense! I started it before my daughter was born but wrote most of it after and its become a sort of an exploration of all my worst fears of rai...

I am undiagnosed, but fairly certain I have Aspergers and I'm fairly certain my 6 year old daughter does too. In fact it's been through watching her early years development and behavioural irregularities that I've come to better understand my own behaviour both as a child and into adulthood (I'm 41 ...

Just to add my thoughts to this, since the question was asked. I recently deleted my FB account. My issue with it was more in the way I found myself using it than anything else, though what I've heard about their business practices is unsettling to the say the least. Basically, I rarely if ever post...
