Looking for Amiga music tracker that produced an executable file

Many many moons ago I filched a piece of music software from my local Amiga store by copying it to a floppy disk. It was a tracker (like SoundTracker, ProTracker, etc.) which was both French (at least all of the menu items were) and had the distinct feature of producing an executable MOD file. I can't seem to find it online, despite my best Google searching. Does anyone know what it was called?

Aftermarket HID or LED headlights on new cars?

I'm looking at a new car purchase and have noticed that the "better" headlights (HID or LED) are typically only available on the highest trim level or with an options package that includes a bunch of other features that I'm a lot less interested in. What should I know about doing an aftermarket install of HID or LED headlights on a new car purchase in the US? [more inside]

Swinging 60s London and... swinging Viking York?

I'm heading to London (and for a two day trip outside) a week from today and need a few more ideas. I have two days unbooked in which I'd like to get out of London (Monday and Tuesday Dec 1 & 2). I'm thinking maybe one or more of :
  • Glasgow
  • York
  • Durham
  • Bath
  • Cambridge
Should I just go see the Solar System in York? Also, are there any must see places or events in London that are can't misses given my interests? [more inside]

How to safely mod minecraft?

My kid wants me to install a bunch of mods to minecraft, I'm confused about the process. Installing mods seems much different then say on Steam games where its integrated into the application. I'm uncomfortable just following sketchy links on message boards to download and install jars/executables, but thats the process as I've seen it described. Is there a more obvious way to do this?

Are laptop screen parts autodetected by the system?

Can I simply physically replace the 1366*768 LCD in my HP EliteBook 8440p with the 1600*900 part and have the laptop autodetect the new screen and show the proper resolution? Or is there extra logic or connectors or dongles or whatever in the main body that must also be modified in order for the display to work, (or maybe it Just Won't Work)? Put simply, is HP 594090-001 plug-and-play? [more inside]

Your favorite Mount and Blade: Warband Mods?

What are your favorite mods for Mount and Blade: Warband? I like the vanilla game mechanics well enough, especially with the Diplomacy add-on, and I'm not a big fan of fantasy worlds with orcs and magic. Ideally, I'd love to find a well done Warband mod that gave me the same mechanics and balance, but in a new location with new factions and geography. But I'm willing to hear anything about your favorite Warband mods. Thanks! [more inside]

PS3 modchip = Sony gets pwnd?

Will Blu Ray make the modding of a PS3 that much harder? I seem to remember that it only took a few months after the original PlayStation and the PS2 came out, for people to figure out the way to mod them and make them play cracked games. Now, I'm far from an expert, but since every PS3 sold actually costs money to Sony it seems to me that once it becomes possible -- say, in the pring -- to mod the PS3 and people start sharing games like there's no tomorrow (the way it happened with the previous consoles) it could very well be a disaster for Sony. As I said I'm not an expert, though.

Can I reduce the noise coming from my Pocket Rocket vibe?

Is every Doc Johnson Pocket Rocket REALLY FREAKING LOUD, or do I have a defective one? Any simple mods to lower the noise level? Or do I just need to buy a different (but still cheap, mini & battery-powered) vibe that's not a POS? And if so, which one? (My previous Doc Johnson vibe was quiet & great -- for the six weeks before it died.)
