Really guys? 3.5GB, and here your modern PC OS takes under 1.7GB on average with a normal installation.

Surely science has to be more advanced by now than slate or tar paper and asphalt shingles. What about some kind of polyurethane sealant that would make it not only waterproof but would aid in rain and snow sliding off the roof. At least a spray on roof would be way faster and cheaper. If there isn't someone needs to kick some scientists in the ass and get them working on it!
Yeah, they went back to sealed metal slatting roofs.

Because normal people and small businesses don't have a fleet of lawyers and accountants to keep the IRS from slapping them with tax dodging charges like big corporations do?
You need a fleet of lawyers and accountants? No not really.

Yeah. Paying taxes is evil. Let the people pay taxes, not us multi-billion companies.
Nothing is stopping you from off-shoring your money either.

Ohhh man. Stardock and Star Control? This is a sacred classic property. I hope this turns out better than the new XCOM did, but I won't be expecting much.
I dunno I didn't mind the xcom reboot at all. As for SC and Stardock? I'm good with it, as long as the shofixti are there with all the glory devices they can summon.

Oh it'll get cooler there. Back before the coldfront came though the hottest day in the stretch here hit 34C(93.2F) with the humidex of 46C(114F). Right now it's a lovely 25F(77F), and it'll be down to 22C(71F) by Tuesday.

This is fairly stupid. You purchase games on Steam knowing that there is no resale. Your decision to buy at their prices should reflect this.

Except new games have no value benefit. They're the same cost at retail. The reality is, that in most places outside the US you still own the right to transfer any licenses or physical copies you own, even selling them.

Do women really even enjoy these kinds of things?
If by going by the GF, sister, and other females of my extended family? No. They're more likely to play a RPG, or FPS over something like this. Though you do have to remember The Sims series, and the giant casual draw for the entire thing.

Do you guys think Metro Last Light will show up with a better deal than -40% and/or did I already miss that?
Considering how new it is? 40% is probably it for right now, I picked it up for $30.50 about two weeks ago. Though I haven't played it yet, and am still working my way through SR2--which I picked up like 5 months ago. heh.

23 purchaces since the sale started. 18 of those are for me, one went to my sister(SR3 Full package), the other 3 to a buddy of mine who joined PCGMR recently.

So, the sale has been okay, but one thing to remember is that it's been a fairly slow and low release cycle so far this year.

New study finds it too soon to tell if ice sheet loss is accelerating? But here I thought that they had this all figured out already, haven't they been saying that along with DoooM and DOOOOM and DOOOOOOOOOOM for the last 25 years?

With the 320.xx drivers Firefix locks up the whole laptop for minutes at a time, and I get sudden drops into single digit fps that won't stop until I quit the game and restart. (Any game. GW2, XCOM, etc..)
Well I wasn't using it in a mobile setup but I had exactly the same problem, in fact it was so bad that it hardlocked my machine several times while the drivers tried resetting itself.

Something fubared with the drivers. So back with the 314.22's and everything is fine. Seems like everything from the 450's through to the 580's are experiencing hardlocks with that last driver set. Though not everyone, but enough people are.

Happy Birthday Cutter, you can have the free sample of Viagra I got at the doctor's officer on my last visit (it's missing one, but dear lord I could drive steel through titanium that night!).

Okay, I'm stealing that.

And happy birthday Cutter.

Nice Jerykk. Think I'll wait for DS3 to drop a bit more before I buy it though, especially based on reviews.
