Steam Machine would be slightly more tolerable if it ran Windows.

While I sorta agree, that is neither their goal (license fees -> MS) nor is it an issue for you, I mean you could always just.. install Windows on it ;p Chances are that if you pick one from a builder that puts desktop parts in and nothing custom you can easily run Windows 10 on it.

For me only steam link is relevant though... and I will never buy hardware until it's been out for a few months and the issues are ironed out. Steam doesn't strike me as a proficient hardware manufacturer...

Cold and wet is infinitely better than hot and dry

Or hot and wet.

Hot and wet is always best. Couple that with some Vermont maple syrup and it's a definite good time.

Maybe if you like swamps and mosquitoes for breakfast ;p I'd rather take hot steak and bacon wrapped sausages when it's storming blizzard outside

I've only watched the first 3 seasons, but I've read all the books. The problem is that GRRM keeps adding characters and scattering them to the winds until there are just too many to keep track of by book 5. I understand that the showrunners are trying to reduce the number of characters to keep it reasonable, but you can only do so much without eliminating critical plot points.

*returns to eating his bowl of unborn puppie stew*

Season 5 already diverts from the books Which makes it TONS better imo (and contrary to what blue thinks, I love season 5 substantially more than any other) it's good to see the show finally remembers that The Winter can't be damned coming for 7 seasons (which as I hear, is the planned runtime of the show ,p)

Wtf? Why would people put email addresses on BANK account info that doesn't belong to them? I mean not like banks ever send you anything relevant that way except maybe statements, but what about Paypal or stores, what about job info or sensitive online store info?

Do they think that just because they have a name that they have this gmail address? How the fuck would they even access their mail account? I assume you have tons of "access warnings" and password reset attempts?

stupidity of humanity does not surprise me, but sometimes.. you really gotta ask yourself.. what the actual fuck is wrong with people? Man this makes me so glad that only 1 other person in the world uses my nick... I seriously couldn't stand such bullshit for very long, and I'd probably do nefarious things to make them stop pretty damn quickly.

Btw, [Nickname]@gmail.com is a valid email address. Only thing gmail flat out ignores dots.. so technically a dot is not invalid, it just ignored making example.fancy examplefancy internally, but you can still log-on as example.fancy...

oh i didnt know that was the focus

makes sense tho

Yeah there are actually quite a few different categories too. Tool Assisted, Any% with glitches, 100% with glitches, and of course, 100% without glitches etc.

Some of the absolute most amazing runs are so called TAS-BOT runs. Where a machine literally beats a game with frame perfect exploits, that no human can duplicate. It's sort of the "hacker" category of speedrunning.

The headline was just.. for people who don't know the lingo

If you are bored and want to dig around -> http://www.speeddemosarchive.com/
https://gamesdonequick.com/

Are the main places to check afaik (games done quick does semi annual marathos, so if you check youtube for AGDQ you will always find some awesome speedruns (and annoying as hell people in the bg ,p)

All game exploits are allowed in speed running assuming they don't require 3rd party tools.

1 mil? SteamSpy shows about 160k owners on Steam. If the game requires Steam, that means the vast majority of sales were on consoles.

SteamSpy is also known to be very inaccurate when it comes to sales numbers.

SteamSpy shows ownership numbers, not sale numbers...

Why waste the money on one? Just take the bus if you don't want to drive. I don't understand the appeal of this. I LOVE driving. It's basically the whole reason I have a car. That is never going away.

Cities and insurance companies are going to enforce this sooner or later no matter what you want Self driving cars could also be 100% electrical powered, there could be a carpool, and "ownership" of a car will become as outdated a concept as buying physical DVD's

Also reading that report, every single human driver involved in the crashes should never be allowed to drive EVER again.

Really ought to change though. This is primary reason I never donate to any charity that doesn't attach a *REAL* program to my donation. Save the children you say? Sure, show me the actual child my money saves, and detail how exactly that is gonna work (feeding it for 1 month is not saving when afterwards it's still in a fucked up failed state with no food) and I will donate.

But no charity does this. I.. I just don't get it. If you wanted to earn money, wouldn't you make sure this info is readily available, that every donation goes to a certain program and case?

And that the Red Cross is at the center of it all when it comes to shady operation, bullshit overhead (40%) and laughable claims and programs... well really, is it a surprise? How can a non-profit even run in the negative don't you have spending limits set so you NEVER exceed your money? How is a top exec given 130k $ a year in fucking HAITI of all places, where living expenses are like 1$ per day at most?

That Red Cross story is .. not funny. At this point you'd have to go so far as to call it what it is. A scam! A government supported scam.

"But the charity will not provide a list of specific programs it ran, how much they cost or what their expenses were."

Lmao, and these duds you want to donate money to? How is that even legal under non-profit rules?

Now please add proper qualifying, racing, flag and pit-stop rules. (Or fix broken ones to begin with)

No yellow flags (Note: I mean rules, the flag themselves exist, but are applied wrong), broken blue flags, wrong pit-stop rules for Formula 1, no Formula E style car-change rules, no correct DTM qualifying rules. No league dependent collision penalties, no stop-and-go penalties. Instead retarded lap time invalidation (which doesn't actually exist in racing ) No correct overtake via cutting over curbs rules... man I could go on and on and on

This is a very realistic car sim that isn't realistic in the RACING part. And this is a huge travesty. What's the point of having a car that feels nice if you don't have the realistic racing leagues with realistic rules?

Don't even get me started on safety cars, virtual safety cars, qualifying penalties etc.


If there are proper league rules in the game, they are either COMPLETELY broken or flat out missing.

He mocked it because the YES box was already pre-tagged, which is illegal

Why would he be tolerant of that if he is not religious?

The dude polishing the mirror was wearing short trousers and sandals.. in the dang JUNGLE.... why?

Well you'd think he should be wearing heavy boots and pants, but it's probably 100+ degrees F (or 38 C for you people with modern measurement systems! ) and 100% humidity out there also.

Or is this in some Nature Park somewhere? That would be the other explanation, he's 2 feet from his Go-Kart and a trip past the gate.

I dunno...

At around 5 seconds in you can see black guys with HEAVY rubber boots and clothes, 1 even with a full-body work suit (more or less), and 2 french white dudes (1 female, presumable?) with absolutely shitty footwork and clothing choices.

This was filmed in Gabon.... so near Congo... somewhat

So to me, this just seems like "dumb white people" dressing completely wrong. Also, sorry for only talking about that, but that simply grabbed my attention as it was so odd seeing heavy rubber boots... and sandals with no socks.. seriously wtf???.

To clarify, I'd not even wear sandals, short trousers and no socks when going for a *WALK* over a German meadow. We have such fun things that hang onto the grass, when you pass by it falls down on your leg, and then drills into your skin to suck blood. So yeah.. Also removal done wrong can infect you with rare incurable diseases.

So.. uh.. uhuh

maybe you're just a pussy?

Maybe, or maybe I just don't like sharing my blood with bloosucking insects
