Microsoft broke IE’s behavior earlier this month. With the update released yesterday, it’s fixed… but under odd circumstances. Here’s the bigger picture.

But there’s news out that these manager programs aren’t as secure as we’d like them to be and may leak things like… oh the master password. But if I’m reading the white paper correctly, […]

Now you know why I’m skeptical of the “optional non-security” description about the second monthly Win10 cumulative updates. Ends up that the patches are not “optional” (click Check for updates and see what happens) and, at least this month, for Servers running IIS, they’re not “non-security.” Case in point: Microsoft Security Advisory ADV190005 | Guidance […]

Do you know that your PC’s hardware that allows you to play Path of Exile, War of Warcraft, or Black Desert doesn’t differ greatly from the hardware of home video game consoles? So, if you were dreaming of running retro games on your computer but wasn’t sure your PC could cope with such a responsible mission, it’s about time you changed your opinion. PC’s software can emulate the work of vintage consoles you used to play on back in the day. Lots of retro gamers successfully emulate Nintendo and Sony consoles. As for Sega Dreamcast, which was a result of Sega’s half-hearted attempt to stay afloat on the video game market, you may find it difficult to emulate its games on your modern PC. The point is that numerous attempts to create a worthwhile emulator for Sega’s short-lived console weren’t quite successful. Only one emulator, NullDC, managed to survive the test of both time and demanding users. Currently, it’s the only reliable tool you can use to emulate most popular Sega Dreamcast games on your computer. Notwithstanding freezes, possible crashes, hangs, and lags which can be commonplace during the gameplay, many users opt exactly for NullDC when it comes to emulating Dreamcast titles. If you want to play timeless classics too, go on reading our tutorial.
Downloading the Emulator

To download the emulator, click on the most recently updated version. You’ll find the new software in your default Downloads folder.
Go to your Download folder and locate the file containing the emulator. You’ll notice that the downloaded program is in .zip format, which is commonplace for all emulation programs. Of course, you’ll need to unzip it by means of any unarchiver you have on your computer. If don’t have any, we recommend that you install 7-Zip. This tool allows opening archived files merely by double-clicking on them.
Just like many other emulators, NullDC won’t work without a special file called BIOS. Currently, there are two files for NullDC distributed online – dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin. You can find the necessary BIOS file on the Internet, as well. Take care to download BIOS for your NullDC from a reliable resource. Scanning the obtained files with an antivirus program also will not hurt (jut to be on the safe side).
The first step you need to take is to decompress the file containing the emulator, as the …
