Ya know Blue. A decent but cheap "flight stick" with lots of buttons could allow you to play a lot of games, especially older ones with simpler controls such as, I dunno, your name sake, or Decent, etc., or even simple flight simulator/dog fighting games. It is not to hard to just map them to keyboard buttons and work easily in DOSBox. And even if it is your non-dominate hand, getting the cheaper one could be fun way to make it more functional!

Am I missing a point to this other than it was fun and challenging for the person to do? There have been mods and engine modifications that have long made it look significantly better than this.

Why don’t we have more sound card options? - Ask an expert - PCWorld.

Uhh, because my video card can also output 5.1 DTS audio on the same cable and I can use an HDMI ARC to get it to the sound system? Is it as potentially amazing as a dedicated sound card with amazing control over? No. But it is super easy and high quality 5.1 sound? Yes. Would I love the graphics card companies include more advanced audio controls? Yes. But ehh, 1 extra short cable from display to audio device, all hidden away in the back for 5.1 audio vs an extra card and cables? Easy win.

I can't eat fish - no allergy just the smell and taste make me want to puke - so I'm always curious why people like certain fish. My bro's fave fish thing is trout almondine for example. What is it you like about swordfish?

So, I used to be that way. One, I started with less fishy fish. But the real secret is, cook it more. All the fancy fish connoisseurs and chefs and such like to cook fish a certain way. If you take any mild fish and actually cook it well. Not burn it to a crisp, but start with cooking it like 20% longer than the recipe and get it actually well done, the taste completely changes, and the nasty fish taste goes away and becomes something else. It then becomes a super healthy meat source that is often fairly cheap, and goes well with so many different types of flavors and seasonings and just opens up a whole new world. I suggest just picking up some mild frozen fish from the local store, and finding some good sounding recipe with seasonings and what not, and just cook it beyond what they say. You might be surprised and happy.

My guess would be in California, since that is where most studios are. Could be Vancouver BC Canada though.

I came to say the same sentiment of many. Really, the movie was not that bad. Was not an amazing movie, but I enjoyed it. Far better than Avatar which got so much raving.

Just go to the task manger and startup tab (in advanced view) and disable it from starting up on windows start. Should persist across most updates.

For most people, 1.2TB a month is way more than they'll ever need. I consider myself a heavy Downloader and I never get close to 400 a month.

I do not come close either. But it is only a 2 person house hold and we do not steam 4k content. Netflix 4K use approximately 2x the data as 1080P. So our 2 person household averages right around 300gb per month, if we switched to 4K it would nearly double. For a household with more than 2 people, and lots of streaming, especially in a year or two with more 4K content and devices, it will become a problem for a lot of people.

This year I went through HL2 again. There are some good upres'd texture mods and general graphics settings mods that make it look a bit better while not changing look or feel, etc. Available to install through Steam too!

The easier solution I have found if you use Gmail or certain other email services. You can put '.' as much as you want in your email address and it still comes to the account without, Gmail ignores it. So fake.email@gmail is the same as fakeemail@gmail as far as Gmail is concerned. However, it does transfer through the '.', and you can set filters up based on that to triage or ignore totally if it gets shared around to much.

Don't have an old laptop or such sitting around? Cheap wireless mouse for 'remote' control. All that can be done through the web-sites, plus, when entering passwords it is like 50000 times easier. Or if you ever want to comment during a twitch stream, etc. Just setup the laptop to not go to sleep when the lid is closed, and shove it away like a DVD player.

That is a decent amount of BTUs for the small size. If you have an IR camera, give it a look at see how uniform the surface temperature is. Probably not very with poor airflow control from cheap grills. They are really fun (IR cameras, and can be gotten to work with a phone for reasonably cheap)!

I personally have never had a gas grill that I bought over the years get over 550 out of the box. The lava rocks have helped some as it retains heat.

Most gas grills are only rated for 550, so if yours truly is rated for 650, it probably requires fine tweaking of the gas to air ratio.

However, a grill getting that hot will require a lot of propane. You maybe pulling propane out of your tank so fast for such a large burner system that is is cooling the propane tank down, which reduces the ability for it to vaporize and reduces the total flow out, resulting in lower temperature.I have experienced it a lot with camping grills and cheap or not properly balances grills at friends places, even ones that do not get as hot as yours is supposed to get (just huge so requires a lot of burners). Next time give the side of the propane tank a feel, if it is overly cold, this might be your problem. You may can solve it by just when cooking having the propane tank in direct sunlight. But you also might need a bigger tank than those little 20lb tanks you get and exchange at the home store and gas stations. Upgrading to a 30 lber might be required. Luckily, those are readily refilled for cheaper anyway than the 20lb exchange.

Blue, unfortunately gas grills take way to long to truly get to full temperature. Not worth the waste of gas for most things, especially when cooking for just 1 or 2. It is important to have the thick grill grates that have a lot of mass and will retain heat, really improving the crust. Like we discussed 15 years ago on here for your charcoal grill! Haha!

You can also add lava rocks to the gas grills, which helps hold heat in and makes it a little more like charcoal, but not exactly.

The major difference is actually burning propane produces more water vapor than charcoal, which reduces the ability for flavors from flaring and smoke from penetrating. Making sure the outside of the beef is super dry is key to allowing that flavor to get in. For steaks, "dry brining" is key, putting salt on all sides and leaving it on a cooling rack for at least 30 minutes at room temperature, but ideally 4 hours to overnight in the fridge to really pull out some of the water in the meat to help offset the water produced in the combustion of propane. And then drying with paper towel right before to remove water.

Hamburgers, really just drying it with a paper towel right before throwing it on is about the best you can do. Unless your burgers are super lean, but why?

I have always had both grills, and both are great. But when just cooking for 1 or 2, it is damn hard not to appreciate the ease and convenience of gas, especially once you make those few adjustments. Good luck and enjoy!

I have been in a lot of harry and dangerous situations in my life, I have all kinds of crazy stores that just floor people. This is not about how awesome I am. The one time in my life I was truly scared, and compared to my other stories people just never get how this was actually scary (because nothing bad was happening and I was having to react, it was all anticipation or potential).

I was walking through a park on a trail, a protected park with no hunting. I come across a small field, it is during sunset. I get halfway into the field and realize that to the right of me are approximately 50 deer, and to the left of me are approximately another 50 deer. They were slowly traveling as a group from my left to right, and I just happened to wander into a break. They did not care about me. But there were tons of large antlered deer. It was at this point I was just hoping like crazy nothing spooked them and they panicked, as there was no way I was getting out of there. I just waited patiently and quietly and very still for them to just mosey by me. This was truly a fearful situation because I had no control or real ability to do anything, and there was plenty of things that could have happened to change the situation that did not.

Instead of turning the screen off at night, just let it go to sleep. And set a windows task scheduler task to do something and wake the screen up up 30 minutes, or however long to warmup, before your typical routine starts. Another thing to try would be to drape a heavy thick towel over the monitor at night and help keep it from getting as cold.

I will also say that my CVT on my Subarus I really like, because I like driving in automatic mode most of the time but also really enjoy being able to up and down shift on the fly or in certain terrains drive the car as a clutch-less manual. All cars should have this option. But also the CVT in automatic mode at low to mid speeds when accelerating is not as smooth as I would like.
