And do what? Read fiction? Watch TV? Hang out in bars? John Lennon said it best, "Enjoying wasting time isn't time wasted." Sounds like you just don't really like gaming all that much.

I enjoy gaming. I think it's great in moderation. Instead of long hours grinding away at an MMO with nothing truly gained, and a lot of negatives (poor health, obsession, constantly indoors, and minimal social contact), I'd rather jump into an FPS for a bit; developing some kind skill that carries over to higher levels of mental concentration and physical reflexes. All those things you mention are ... well I live in California. We go outside and enjoy life all-year-round. We don't suffer from the climatic prison effect. Pinging Ant.

People burn out on an MMOs. This is a surprise? I burn out on MMOs within 10 minutes. The only MMO that kept my attention for a longer period was City of Heroes (RIP). You know it's true, psychologically, economically, and physiologically, MMOs will have a negative impact on your life. Avoid any kind of game that keeps you staring at a screen or sitting down for more than an hour out of each day; same advice goes toward using social media.

And it happened only two weeks before Brad's sexual harassment case goes to trial. What a coincidence.

Interesting ...

Chaotically experimenting will not solve the problem. Hit and miss / trial and error, may come up with a solution but you'll never be in full control or know the exact cause. Perform diagnostics in safe mode or via a Linux distro. Use the process of elimination to find out if it's the hardware first. If it is, go from there. If it isn't the hardware, you'll need to do a step by step process of finding out the culprit software. Most likely you'll end up with a fresh install of Windows, then slowly but surely install software, test, install software, test, until you find the trouble maker. Create a lot of system restore points as you install software. You can find scripts that will create system restore points at the click of a button.

Don't get into the habit of simply trying all sorts of weird tweaks and random approaches. Be in control. Be systematic. You will learn more in the long run and gain a greater understanding of your computer and the technology behind it.

What you are describing sounds like a heat issue (are you overclocking?). Open the case, and blow a giant box fan across to see if you have that kind of problem or if it goes away. Run some diagnostics and monitor temperatures, etc. Even a small dust layer can cause most technology to over-heat; it's very common.

Before you do anything else ...

Back up your important data now and every time you make a change to it. Back it up to an external HD, to the cloud, or something. Have, at least, two resources for backups so that you can have a fall back if one fails. Ideally, you will have at least one physical, immediately accessible backup, and another one that is remotely stored and encrypted (in case of fire or some kind of tragedy at the home or office). Make these backups before you do any further diagnostics or repairs. Make backing up one of your primary habits. This way you can feel secure and patient with fixing any issues that may come up; knowing that all your hard work, creativity, and time spent are safe from being lost forever.

QuakeCon is in Dallas, Texas. According Google weather it's 102 degrees there on a Monday and 100 on Tuesday. No thanks.

Never believe anyone on the Internet. Go outside and make real friends. It's much more difficult yet far more rewarding. Good luck.

Still, one of my favorite applications so far for the Rift is vrCinema3D, where you load it any video you want and it looks and feels like you're in a movie theater with a HUGE screen. It may not sound like much but it sure impressed me more than almost anything else. There's just something about the feeling it gives.

Imagine the porn possibilities. Reminds me of the movie "Brainstorm".

people are sensitive about things. each thing has a person somewhere who is sensitive about it.

the sum total of humanity is sensitive about everything, and if everything was censored to make everyone happy, nothing would be left. the only solution to global sensitivity (that isn't scorched earth) is tolerance.

I appreciate the philosophy of your comment. Tolerance is a difficult skill to practice and near impossible to master. Besides work and family, I often put on my headphones, enjoy the beach, and live in my own imaginary world. I'm being honest, right?

Some kind of like and unlike system (doesn't have to actually be like and unlike). If the posts gets enough unlikes it becomes invisible. If the poster gets a lot of unlikes for multiple posts, it flags them for your review.

In a more advanced scheme the user can set a variable to how many unlikes until a post becomes invisible or never becomes invisible.

My question for Mr. Carmack is why Texas? Horrible weather there.

I love Beat Hazard Ultra! It's one of the few games I return to playing. I have both the PC and iPhone version. I often play the iPhone version while relaxing on the beach.

One of the many reasons I hated the mid-west. The lifestyle typically entails spontaneous BBQing, seeking entertainment in the basement, or vegetating in front of air conditioning. Going outside was usually a painful experience due to some kind of extreme weather condition.
