How to Disable the Annoying SSH Password Warning on Raspberry Pi

When you set up a Raspberry Pi, assuming you’re using Raspberry Pi OS, your system will have a default username of “pi” and password of “raspberry.” If you enable SSH for remote access, which is necessary if you’re doing a headless Raspberry Pi install, the system gives you a nagging warning message if you haven’t changed that password. You get a dialog box on the desktop that you have to click to dismiss and a small text notice in the terminal upon login.Obviously, changing your password is good security hygiene on any computer, but if you have a lot of…

What did you play last week?

Andy Kelly has been playing Microsoft Flight Simulator in advance of its release, and been properly wowed by its fidelity. The thought of flying over a version of the city where I live that—at least from a height—looks photorealistic? That’s exciting, and so is the idea of being able to return to places I’ve visited. The closest thing to a flight sim I’ve played in the last few years have been games where you’re a bird, but this might just drag me back.Chris Livingston has been playing Blaseball, a simulator of baseball that is apparently being played in Hell (unlike…

Great moments in PC gaming: Playing on the first mass-market PCs in the 1980s

Great moments in PC gaming are bite-sized celebrations of some of our favorite gaming memories.I’m a member of the generation some folks have taken to calling “Xennials”, the tiny but distinct generation sandwiched between Millennials and Generation X. My favorite description of us is that we’re the generation who came of age with the internet, but are just old enough to remember functioning in a world without it. I can even pinpoint when I first had a sense that I’d been born around the cusp of a great shift—the night my parents came home with a brand-new Commodore 64.It seemed…

Atlantis, aka Coral Castle, arrives in Fortnite

Fortnite’s Season 3 brought with it a freshly flooded map, with several existing locations like Slurpy Swamp hidden underwater while new areas appeared above the waterline. Our guide to the Season 3 map changes had the info on that, but now things are changing again. The water has receded, and the Atlantis location fans had been expecting since they saw the Aquaman skin has appeared.The whirlpool that formerly dominated the map’s northwest corner, and launched players who swum over it into the air, has gone. Atlantis stands in its place. It’s actually called Coral Castle rather than Atlantis, but you…

The 7 weirdest things coming in Warframe’s grotesque new open world

Warframe is a weird game. It’s got a village full of indebted, once-human robots who store their human heads inside of their chest cavity. It’s got an infectious pimple that you can spread to other players or pop, using its juice to grow a pet monster, and it takes almost 50 hours before you reach the character creation screen. But Heart of Deimos, the new expansion which launches on August 25 and includes a new open world zone to explore, might just be one of Warframe’s weirdest updates yet.Announced during Warframe’s TennoCon 2020 fan convention, Heart of Deimos explores the…

Warframe’s creepy Heart of Deimos open world expansion launches on August 25

Revealed today during TennoCon 2020, Warframe’s annual fan convention, developer Digital Extremes also announced that Heart of Deimos will be coming much sooner than you might think: August 25.Like Warframe’s previous open world areas, Heart of Deimos is a big, open space where players can fight, complete bounties, or just pass the time by fishing. But what makes Deimos unique is its deeply unsettling aesthetic. The second moon of Mars is overrun with the Infested, a faction of enemies that, like the name…

ASRock Pulls AMD Ryzen 4000 Support From DeskMini A300 Mini PC

ASRock DeskMini A300 (Image credit: ASRock)ASRock had previously released a new beta BIOS (3.60L) for the DeskMini A300 that brought support for the Ryzen 4000-series (codename Renoir) APUs to the DeskMini A300. For reasons unknown, the motherboard vendor has since removed the BIOS from the mini PC’s support page.The fact that the system ever supported Renoir is surprising. The DeskMini A300 has an AMD motherboard with the A300 chipset, and Renoir only works on 400-and 500-series chipsets. According to Chinese publication HKEPC, ASRock’s simple workaround consisted of dropping support for old Bristol Ridge chips to make room for the new…
