2K has quietly delisted almost all of the WWE games on Steam

Without warning, 2K has removed the majority of WWE games available on Steam from sale, along with all their DLC. Prior owners can still access the games, but anyone wanting to buy the games on Steam will have to hunt down a key from a third party seller while they’re still available.

According to Steam-Tracker.com (opens in new tab), WWE 2K17, 18, 19, and 20 were all removed from sale on Steam around July 13. Because 2K made no attempt to announce or publicise the delistings, it was only when a curious Reddit user tried and failed to find the older games (opens in new tab) on Steam that their removal came to light.

The delistings mean that the only 2K WWE games currently available for purchase on Steam are this year’s WWE 2K22 and the little-loved arcade wrestler WWE Battlegrounds. The good news is that WWE 2K22 was

ACC fashion, computer programing & anthropology students unite to study Austin flooding

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Community College turned to some unique citizen scientists in a recent project examining flooding in Central Texas: fashion, UX design and anthropology majors. The project is part of the school’s Citizen Science Undergraduate Research Experience and is funded by National Science Foundation.

As part of the project, the students discovered some startling facts about who’s prepared for flooding, who is most impacted and how flooding impacts Barton Creek and Barton Springs.

“We spent a long time recruiting in a lot of other departments,” said Professor Leslie Davis, an oceanography instructor at ACC.

She said that turning to non-scientists helps bring a new perspective to their studies.

“You really want to draw from a diverse group of students.”

Eleven students were chosen for the program, out of dozens of applicants. Each participated in a five-week research

Companies In The Computer Mouse Market Are Introducing The

LONDON, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the mouse market, companies in the mouse market are introducing a biometric mouse to improve data security and privacy for the user. A biometric mouse permits only authorized users to control the mouse and access the computer. Protection is accomplished with an integrated fingerprint reader, either in the receiver or the mouse. This feature enhances security and adds convenience because the user can use his fingerprint rather than a password for a secure login. For example, Lenovo, a Hong Kong-based consumer electronics company, produced a Fingerprint Biometric USB Mouse, which offers advanced input functionality with an integrated fingerprint sensor for password-free authentication. It features 1600 DPI resolution with an optical sensor for precise tracking and an ambidextrous design for more fluid control and ergonomics. It delivers solid protection against intrusion with 256-bit encryption and

After 30 years, computer repair service still ‘about people’

WILBRAHAM – The small shop at 2785 Boston Rd. in Wilbraham is filled with shelving racks on which customers’ devices sit. There isn’t much space to move around in the small rooms, but the areas are used efficiently. Anywhere that isn’t taken up by electronic equipment is occupied by posters and models of various sci-fi franchises, mostly Star Wars.

“We’re all geeks,” said owner Aristeo Torres. The quirky nature of the shop belies the expertise of Torres, his partner Jan Macon and the five technicians that work under Torres’s tutelage at POST Computer Systems. The word POST in the business’s name is an acronym that stands for “power-on, self-test,” a diagnostic testing sequence that is used in computer repair.

POST Computer Systems began 30 years ago in Torres and Macon’s basement. Torres had the technological know-how, while Macon was the business manager. Since then, Torres has taught Macon about computers
