i almost jumped on the ultrawide bandwagon, but i took a look at them at fry's and they weren't big enough for me, even the 34" ones. wide enough for sure but i like more vertical screen space. i'm hoping they'll release a 40" ultrawide at some point.

on a side note, you could buy 40" 4k IPS monitors on amazon for awhile now. my friend has one mounted to the wall in front of his desk and it's really a bit too big for desktop gaming. 43 is excessive i feel, unless you're planning on sitting further back.

I always wondered why Michael O'Hare left Babylon 5 after the first season. I thought Bruce Boxleitner was fine, but for me O'Hare was the heart of the show, able to embody so well the combination of leadership and compassion tinged with just a touch of PTSD that was Jeff Sinclair. Yes the story really starts taking off in season 2, but that first season had such an impact on me when I first saw it, and I credit his leadership and performance with that.

I've just discovered why:
In 2012, Michael O'Hare, who played the original Commander of Babylon 5, Jeffrey Sinclair, passed away. During his life, however, fans were unaware of the fact that he suffered from delusions and paranoia due to mental illness. That was the real reason he left the show after only one season. Straczynski explained how O'Hare struggled, how he was barely able to come back for a two-parter to close his character's story, but above all, that O'Hare wanted people to know the truth after his death. And the most important truth of O'Hare's struggle with mental illness is that he loved the fans, that they were what sustained him during the difficult times in his life.

really sad for sure, but in retrospect it gave the show so much more power with the two captains, and unexpected sympathy and closeness with sinclair when he came back. really loved the whole babylon 4 arc.

side note: did you know babylon 4 was originally how the show was supposed to end? SINCLAIR IS VALEN. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. MIND *BLOWN*.

Yeah, March is definitely going out like a friggin lion. It's been near 0 here last few days and staying there all week coupled with snow/rain. Grr!

The wind has been blowing here at about 20 knots for 2 weeks straight. Been sunny though.

it's been disgustingly sunny here all month. 80s with the exception of two rainy days, and frankly we need more, cuz of the drought and cuz i like the rain and the cold. i have some great jackets that i don't get to wear nearly enough =)

Considering air travel is one of the worst things that can be done to the environment, I find it funny they're trying to pretend that going solar makes any impact.

not true. on a per passenger basis air travel is more fuel efficient than cars are.

sigh... first world problems.

i think most of us here are nerds of varying degrees with social skills of varying degrees, and i think i speak for the majority when i say get the fuck over it. is Munn a nerd? Triumph the insult dog said it best when he answered his own question about star wars with, "nononono, the correct answer is, WHO FUCKING CARES!?"

you know how i know that that whole article is nothing but a masterclass in click bait hipster SJW bullshit? because whether he was right or wrong, the world is not better or worse for it.

a hot chick skating by on her hotness alone? i am A-OK with that. there a place in this world for bimbos, and there always will be.

Will need non-Videosift submissions if people want that site avoided.

Did I miss something? Why the Videosift boycott?

people were griping about it recently in the ootbs. no idea why, not that big a deal.

strange name, reference a rather famous chess strategy. also strange, i've been watching chess videos recently and only very lately learned about alekhine's gun. like, last week. odd how things seem to pop up in multiple unrelated ways when they do pop up.

as i understand it, what occulus is doing is the bare minimum for acceptable VR. we all remember the complaints about dizziness from lag and screendoor effect with previous OR versions, so i don't see how sony could be avoiding that while releasing a cheaper version. occulus could've probably released something on par with sony a year ago, but i like that they chose to forego quick profit with semi-functional kludge in favor of a real VR solution.

I know it's a bit archaic, but I'm pretty sure a quarter is Two Bits, not one, so the total is 8 bits per dollar, double what your parenthetical sum is above in the Brinks story.

Serves me right trying maths in the morning!

Don't feel too bad Blue. I still have to convince myself on a daily basis that 1 is not a prime number, and I'm a web developer / programmer.

uh.. since when is 1 not a prime? in every list i've ever seen 1 is always the first prime.

i'm not going to google it, just gonna let the flames spread XD

Picked up a new Logitech keyboard and got a free copy of the game. I hope it is fun, but since it was free, I don't have to worry about buyers remorse

Totally love the new G910, btw.

havent seen Fury Road - i heard that Mad Max is more of a side character compared to Charlize Theron, who is the main... it sounds fucked up

It's about Max's role in someone else's story in a similar way to Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome.

You guys have it all wrong, it was all about the guitar player.


amen to that. that dude pretty much embodied the whole film.

i also thought revenant was overrated. i wasn't wowed by it or leo's acting. in fact, i thought it wasn't even the best film in its genre. the liam neeson film, The Grey, i thought was far superior and that gets no recognition at all.

Heard the NPR story on this. It was good he got some relief from the letters -- especially the ones from NASA and Thiokol.

It is depressing though to know someone was telling the powers that were making the decisions EXACTLY why they shouldn't launch, and yet they did any way. As was reported in the story, definitely something to be taught in our engineering schools.

unimaginably for an entire bureaucracy of engineers, they got into a habit of 'if we got away with it once it's fine'. so a disaster really was inevitable with the blatant disregard for safety that was going on. even more unimaginably, they did it again with columbia. all because a couple egomaniacs put politics ahead of safety. they really should test for personality when they promote people - only the truly selfless need apply.

I am in the market for a new kbd. My current one is a 10 year old MS Natural Kbd. I "retired" it years ago, but it keeps being brought back into service after those new ones I get die after a year or two. Looking for a new one that will last.

classic logitech illuminated here. registers all my required button presses, nice and quiet with firm pressure, while being loose enough that the keys don't stick if you hit them at the wrong angle. that last bit really bugged me about other spendier kbs - unless you pressed straight down perfectly they'd stick and not go down.

i've had it for six or seven years now i think. only problem i had, one of the keys popped out while i was cleaning it one time, but easy enough to pop back in

yeah SS1 was super advanced shit for its day. it was experimental as fuck, and a lot of it didn't really work, but i loved it for trying. i only played the demo though, as it required a pentium90 and i only had a 486dx2 66mhz. still, through the 5fps fog my early teen self loved the shit out of its scifi-ness, its bleak cyberpunkness, even its weird controls.

after that they streamlined the shit out of SS2 and even though it was probably a more functional game, i was severely disappointed in its conventionality.
