Last weekend, I had a gaming weekend with some friends.
Three TV's and three Playstations and Borderlands 3 for the three of us!
The intro movie featured some cool music, just like Borderlands 2, again by The Heavy.
So that's a great intro of the game weekend and a cool outro of the work week by making it SOTW
I can really recommend the games as well, if you're into hilarious shooters with rather dark humor
Nice! Here's something back at you. I can't believe I didn't catch this greatness before this week! Banana-Na-Na. Never heard of Technohead before, and their 'I Wanna Be A Hippy' is also off the charts!
If you know anything about pinewood derby races...
I've got a laptop that is connected to a video projector. I have an adapter that converts the laptop's HDMI signal to the projector's VGA signal. The laptop is collecting data from the race track and displaying it on the laptop's monitor, which is then mirrored on the video projector. All that works fine.
What I also want to do is put a video camera (e.g., GoPro) in place to show the cars as they come across the finish line. How can I get the output of the video camera to the laptop (so that it can also be shown on the video projector)?

Have you tried connecting a USB hub to give you more connections?
Also, many cameras have a network port so you could just create a small network containing the camera and the laptop.
I connected to 68 cameras to a server this way. I then wrote software to enable multiple streams from any of them - they had been restricted to only two per camera but this method enabled more than that.

To answer your questions, "it depends", and "because".
Microsoft are pushing .NET Core as the future, and won't be making any further changes to the .NET Framework. It's not going away any time soon, but the features and performance will never improve, and any bugs which don't impact security will never be fixed.
You can get some C# 8 features to work in a .NET Framework project by manually editing the project file; others require additional NuGet packages; and some won't work at all. I think some of the new features are terrible - particularly the tangled mess that came out of "default interface methods" - but without upgrading to .NET Core, you probably won't be able to take advantage of any further improvements to the language.
But at the same time, we regularly need to display or export SSRS reports from our applications. I have yet to find a reliable way of doing that which would work in .NET Core.
We also occasionally have to interact with a third-party ERP system which uses a WCF interface with a custom closed-source message format. I have yet to see whether it's possible to make that work in Core.
I don't think we've yet reached the point where newer libraries are dropping support for .NET Framework. Microsoft tried it with EF Core 3.0, but changed their minds for 3.1, which caused a complete mess. Having said that, it's probably only a matter of time, especially with ".NET 5" allegedly slated for release later this year.
