Feeling a need to say something, anything, on here so...

Recently(ish) I've been noticing a bit of possible artifacting. A little back dot roughly "O" sized can randomly appear, change size a bit and disappear in seconds. I'm only seeing this in Planetside 2 but then that's the only game giving the graphics card any workout.

I have a good case with good cooling, the graphics card fan is left to auto and certainly isn't going near it's maximum speed (which it is capable of doing, occasionally on boot it goes full pelt until windows loads). The fan seems to be set to stop temps exceeding ~80C.

The dots appear infrequently and at random as far as I can tell so not really practical to try and reproduce. Card is running the default which IIRC is very slightly GPU overclocked AMD 6950. I guess it is getting a bit old, probably from early 2011 or so.

Any thoughts if the card is overheating or dying?

I had a videocard that produced various artifacting in WOW, on it's way out...eventually it would start the glitch the entire screen before hardlocking the machine. Became more and more frequent towards the end...

I actually managed to see this post before the site went totally ka-boom. I tried to comment on it and say something like, "we seem to be having these brief outages more regularly lately" and couldn't. It wasn't too long after that the entire site was just down.

SO IT'S YOUR FAULT!!!

The forums going down really makes you appreciate them that much more. I think i didnt spend 1/100th the time on the site w/o the comments being up, just glanced at the headlines and off i went..

Thanks Frans!

I noticed the same with my browsing habits. Once I looked over everything briefly, I ended up moving on...the community is part of the character of the site.

I dunno, sounds like Ken was tired of making AAA games and all the limitations and expectations that come with that. Can't blame him, it's pretty limiting.

If Infinite's development was difficult as hinted, he's probably burnt the fuck out...

I got my link about 45 minutes after I signed up. The notice about the newsletter mailing list was on the very first page. I remember because I thought twice about signing up...but ultimately decided the music was worth the extra two seconds it would take me to put their newsletter in the "send to spam" list if it bothers me.

Maybe it was noscript, but I didn't see a mention of a mailing list until I got to the final confirmation page, at least from what I remember.
In any case, signed up on the 15th, got the download links late last night, a bit after I posted, and a bit longer than 45 minutes to an hour.

Did they still work? My email acted like the links were timed...hope it worked for you!

You just don't know the Xbox as well as they do. You only see the bad times, there are plenty of good times too. And sure the Kinect is a waste of $100 but Microsoft promised that they would change! We can't just let the relationship die.

(I know some of that is said in jest, but) All I know is I ordered a ps3 last summer, a few weeks after I preordered a ps4, and discovered my second xbocks was dead. And I couldn't be happier with the switch...I'm a little disappointed I didn't make the switch earlier, frankly.

Love the fanboy comments too! So desperately trying to rationalize it. Lol!

It really is Stockholm Syndrome. They just can't admit to themselves that their console is a terrible piece of shit, so they go to the most ludicrous lengths, even defending Kinect, to justify having wasted $500.

I tried for the De La Soul albums, didn't get squat. Never sent me a link, but DID sign me up for a mailing list that wasn't mentioned until the final confirmation, I think it was.

My email took about an hour to get to me, and it had DL links in it. They said they were slammed, and that links would take a bit...

Speaking of Steam...anyone else having problems logging into the client or on the website? I'm getting "Steam Store is too busy" on the website, and my client is doing that whole "can't log into steam" thing, which pops up when I clear too many cookies or something.

I'm showing "no connection" on the open client, currently.
