Three-Body Problem (Netflix)

  • SpinRite v6.1 Release #3
    The 3rd release of SpinRite v6.1 is published and may be obtained by all SpinRite v6.0 owners at the SpinRite v6.1 Pre-Release page. (SpinRite will shortly be officially updated to v6.1 so this page will be renamed.) The primary new feature, and the reason for this release, was the discovery of memory problems in some systems that were affecting SpinRite's operation. So SpinRite now incorporates a built-in test of the system's memory. For the full story, please see this page in the "Pre-Release Announcements & Feedback" forum.

  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

    (You may permanently close this reminder with the 'X' in the upper right.)

I started watching Three-Body Problem (Netflix) last night and thought it might be something other SciFi junkies might like too. It;s based on a series of books so it might morph into more than one season.
In my opinion, the first episode doesn't hook the viewer, but the follow-on episodes are much more engaging, and everything really comes together in episode 5. We finished episode 6 last night and without two remaining it's difficult to see how this will be resolved. So there may be another batch in the future. Overall, a surprisingly worthwhile Sci-Fi experience. (And episode #5 was ... wow!)

Sometimes it takes a few episodes for a show to find its groove, right? And when it finally does, it's like hitting the jackpot! By the way, have you ever heard about to make money watching Netflix? Yeah, I was surprised too when I stumbled upon this idea online. Anyway, glad you enjoyed the sci-fi experience—episode 5 sounds like it was a real game-changer!

Overall I thought it was a fantastic adaptation of the book(s), simplified to appeal to a wider audience.

I hope it gets renewed for additional seasons!
