Uh... GIMP? Do you mean the actual comic editing?
Text balloons are the easiest because they're just deleting text inside and then adding new text. For sound effects and other stuff, you're looking at needing better image editing and art skills in general (or the other way out of just putting translated text next to sound effects). But GIMP is free and pretty versatile.
No, I just need to translate the text, I don't need to edit the sound effects.
I don't think it actually reflects in power characteristics, so you kind of have to check.
It was definitely before.
You can even do it in paint in that prospect. But GIMP is a free one, and outside of pirating some others, I can also reccomend nabbing Clip Art Studio when it comes on sale.
The other thing you will need is to know which fonts the comic is using. They generally use manga on manga.
Either way fonts tend to be free, so
Well, I finally made more or less a full transition to my new laptop... and while assigning my desired letters for my external drives, I discovered that for some reason the letter "I" is not available at all. Is this something that can be fixed, or is a Windows 10 thing that cannot be circumvented?
I? I should be available. I just checked, I could assign it.
Well, I eventually found through googling the right keywords that the problem isn't novel; somehow the system assigned the letter to a drive that has since been removed, so either I did it several weeks ago while tinkering around and forgot, or whoever set up the basic software on the computer before I got it did it and never thought to free it up.
I've followed the guide to fix this by modifying the system registry so that this drive is assigned a different letter (after creating a system restore point, of course!), and it worked like a charm. Now I don't have to go through the massive headache of fixing thousands of links to that one drive.
The one wrinkle in this is that after I assigned said drive of mine to "I", I unexpectedly got a system notification that the drive needs to be scanned for possible errors. What could possibly cause this?

A few days old, but Facebook is apparently setting up an Oversight Board that deals with questions such as bans and the like and which could get far-ranging influence. Imma say though, despite the credentials of its members But the board has been handling pretty humdrum stuff so far. It has spent a lot of time, two people involved told me, discussing nipples, and how artificial intelligence can identify different nipples in different contexts. does not sound encouraging to me.
Detecting nipples: easy. Contextualising nipples: hard. Making either a priority: stupid.
Google has disabled The Great Suspender, an extension that was used by Chrome users who were prone to having a lot of tabs open, because, in the words of the message users have been receiving, "it contains malware."
This has left users with some questions and concerns.
First, what happened? Well, concerns were raised last year that the extension contained nefarious code after the extension changed hands. More details here on Git Hub.
Yesterday, Google pulled the plug on the extension, telling users that it was now blocked, and all mentions of it on the Google Chrome webstore now result in 404s.
If you were a user, the tabs you had suspended are now gone. Well, you can still recover them, but it's a bit of a faff. It involves searching your history for the ID of the extension (klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg) and then extracting the URL from the string (it's after the uri=).
Others want to know what to do next.
There are a few extensions that you can use that do similar things. Session Buddy and One Tab sprint to mind.
If you'd rather a paid service, I've been using Partizion for the past few months, and I find it really reliable, and once you get used to it, it works really well.
Or, you know, you could limit the number of tabs you have open.
Apple is demanding exhaustive and incredibly specific sales data from... Valve. Because of part of its argument with Epic.
They had the sense to scale down for demanding it on every game Steam sells and all sales information for the past decade at least.

Wow, that's an impressive combination of stupid and entitled.
This is Apple we're talking about.
To quote what they were asking for:
Never mind that most computer software isn't referred to as apps anyway, so that's particularly unusual wording. And in non-lawyer speak:
How generous of them to "only" want detailed historical pricing information for 600 games as opposed to all of them.
Valve's response to the first request is "yes this information is available but not in the formats you specifically want", and in general that they have co-operated but don't believe it's narrow or reasonable to recreate six years of sales data on hundreds of third-party games and divulge confidential information. Including information that they don't keep.

Godaddy phished its own employees with a promise of a christmas bonus and then sent the people that fell for it to remedial training.... and no one got the bonus.
My company regularly sends out trial phishing emails as part of information security training. That particular one is pretty mean-spirited, though.
Bet it got everyone's attention, however.
Fry's Electronics is dead as of midnight this morning.
Sucks that poor management killed the company.

I have to say that catering your brick and mortar operations to PC building enthusiasts is not exactly a premier business model in the era of Amazon and Newegg, even before COVID.

Biden admin plans executive order to address chip-shortage woes: Semiconductor demand isn't going to drop, but supply has proven a problem.
President Joe Biden plans to sign an executive order this afternoon aimed at "securing America's critical supply chains." The order will address several challenges in the US supply chain, according to a fact sheet from the White House, with a particular focus on pharmaceuticals, mineral resources, semiconductors, and large-capacity batteries.
The shortages are beginning to affect all kinds of products. PC graphics cards are legendarily in short supply, and wafer shortages are a contributing factor. Companies are also expressing concern that shortages will affect the availability of gaming consoles and smartphones in the near future.
In both the US and worldwide, the auto industry is hit particularly hard at the moment. Several automakers have had to slow or halt production at their factories due to a lack of chips to put into new cars.
