I just realized the entire "I Wish" track by Skee-Lo is a vent on live radio.

Personally I think any PC gamer who doesn't buy that one directly off of GoG should be slapped across the head, but that's another story.

The Dev could have gone exclusive on GOG. They wanted to give their customers the choice of which platform to play from. I went with Steam and paid the full price as a thank you for not compromising. I may even end up loving the game in the process... or I'll have nightmares for life.

I was talking about Cybberpunk. Were you..?

You might want to make that point explicitly clear since the default topic is Darq.

Just when I thought Epic couldn't sink any lower: "They made it clear that releasing Darq non-exclusively is not an option. I rejected their offer before we had a chance to talk about money." So now they're employing fear tactics on indie studios to go EGS exclusive.

Sorry for being a downer this morning. I needed to get this off my chest.

No need to apologize. My heart still hurts almost three years after having to put down my beloved Cocker Spaniel/Chow chow mutt Holly. She was the first dog I ever had that was solely my dog and was my constant companion. Work? Curled under the desk at my feet. The eternal truck riding buddy whenever I went anywhere. Hiking where she would dash through the woods and splash through streams. Camping where she would happily lie next to my feet by the campfire. Snoring loudly on her inflatable dog bed in the tent. Barking and chasing the birds away from Mrs. B's garden plots. Only dog I've witnessed stare down an entire pack of coyotes with her ever defiant "fuck you" bark. She and I fit hand in glove. I miss her terribly.

However, she also had a long, happy life after I rescued her where she enjoyed a love, dedication, and level of care that she had not had previously. She found a life partner in my dad's dog and learned what friendship was. She provided years of faithful companionship and unyielding, unconditional love. There was much good in her world.

Best fifteen dollars I ever spent, adopting an "unadoptable" dog.

Who's cutting these onions!

Burrito of Peace wrote on Aug 18, 2019, 11:55:
But...it's time for a new companion. It's time for puppy breath, working on potty training, and sleeping on my chest. It's time for boundless energy that exhausts me. I don't think any dog, cat, or any pet really, wants you to mourn overly long. I think they want you to be just as happy with a new companion as you were once with them. At least with dogs, your well being was ever more important than their own in their estimation. So if you have the means to properly care, feed, and house a new dog...then it's time. Perhaps it is past time.

There are so many puppers looking to be adopted. Could you look into your heart to consider saving another?

Would be better if the background was toned down so they don't drown out the lyrics. Has too much of a "made for club" feel to it.

Actually it was made for Tetris Effect. It's a rhythm game mixed with Tetris.

Though energy is another factor. I've got some bad fatigue issues, and have to lie down for much of the time not spent working. It really makes the hour-each-way to meetup groups after work seem daunting.
You might want to see a doctor about that, it doesn't sound normal. Do you sleep well? Do you "wake up tired"? Could be anything from you are simply working too hard, or a medical problem of some kind -- lyme disease, sleep apnea, any number of other things... You're not vaping are you? (just kidding..)
Your fatigue issues definitely don't sound normal. Tact mentioned some common culprits and here's a few more. Thyroid, depression and leukemia.

It's time for a thorough checkup and a discussion of your symptoms with a medical professional.

As for loneliness, keep working on that, you would not be the first person to attend church with the express purpose of meeting people.
I wish you the best, on both fronts.

According to my insurance website, Iíve had over $35,000 in medical bills this year.
Iíve tried a host of antidepressants (which at best did nothing and at worst... I try not to think about it), sleeping pills (I always wake up tired, and almost always between 3 and 5)CPAP, Bipap, ASV (after the previous two saw almost exclusively central events, then was told by the doctor to stop after a month of compliance but no improvement), a mandibuar advancement split (since my sleep apnea isnít all central, and this at least doesnít increase central events), Provigil, Nuvigil, Adderall, supplements, talk therapy (which ends up being 70% ďIím tiredĒ, 20% ďI want to moveĒ and 10% everything else, boatloads of tests, an endocrinologist, a nutritionist, an acupuncturist (not covered by insurance, but Iíll try anything at this point), even more esoteric depression treatments like transcranial magnetic stimulation (which may have helped a little), chiropractors, and who knows what else.
Iím still seeing the acupuncturist and therapist, and may soon subject myself to another round of antidepressants, though I worry about what will happen.

I seriously donít know what else to do. Iím on my fifth or sixth sleep doctor, and they donít know what to do.

//No smoking, no drugs, no alcohol, no caffeine (it makes my sleep even worse and doesnít do enough to keep me awake during the day), diet is highly monitored (since the wrong foods make me feel even worse, if you can believe that), not overweight
Work schedule isnít too bad (Just 9-5, for the most part), but even that frequently takes more energy than I have, and I spend the day with thoughts consumed by how many more minutes until I can justify sneaking out to the car to take a quick nap.

Hi, gsilver. Have you tried Quetiapine? They initially prescribed 50mg, which hit me like a freight truck and made me feel like a zombie in the morning. I requested a lower dosage, and they dropped it to 25mg. The results were better. However, adding a dissoluble 10mg Melatonin tab with the Quetiapine is perfect for my brain chemistry. My doctor said Melatonin is typically safe to mix with Seroquel-based medications; though they advise against 20mg or more. I now get good sleep, and the previous issues I suffered from have subsided for now, at least. One condition I am willing to share here is that I had extremely bad insomnia. Without the medicine, I will lay in bed for six hours and not fall asleep. It would not be uncommon for me to be up for 48-72 hours at a time with full stamina and alertness; sometimes doing programming during those times.

Like I posted earlier, Classic WOW is not for you. You will never understand WHY people want to play it, and why the demand is high for it. It's not because of rose-colored glasses or the need to relive a childhood pastime. People have asked Blizzard to release vanilla servers since TBC. Every year the outcry and pleas for vanilla servers have grown until a group from France name Nostalrius launched one of the most accurate emulations of the original vanilla experience in 2015. A year after launch, Nost had close to a million register accounts and 150,000 active logins (Accounts were active if they had logged in within the past two weeks). The game grew purely on word-of-mouth, despite being a private server, not officially backed by Blizzard and also based on no Twitch streamer being able to stream it for fear of getting hit with a copyright strike. Before Nost was shut down, the server showed no signs of decline a year and a half after launch. Six months before closure Nost launched a second PVE server; something that was very rare since most private servers tended to be PVP only. Streamers like Sodapoppin and Asmongold with their 20K+ and 40K+ streams respectively have been streaming classic WOW, further promoting that content over BFA. If you look at most WOW streams, either half or more is Classic. The point is the popularity of Classic doesn't jive with the unsubstantiated comments all of you spout. Nostalrius proved there is a REAL demand for Classic from all age groups and skill spectrums (you need to understand that). By announcing and releasing Classic, Blizzard finally agreed and saw there was a large market for that content. All of that effectively eliminates the idea that Classic WOW isn't for today's gamer. It is VERY much for today's gamer.

They aren't stupid. They're fully aware that a good chunk of people have rose-tinted, and they'll quit long before 60.

That's a retail-tinted view of Classic. You think because it's old that somehow equates to a few months of interest and then people quitting. You genuinely don't know what Classic is. A good game is a good game no matter it's age and those who want the classic experience over retail will stick with the game for the long term. Blizzard will financially benefit from offering both experiences, and there may even be some crossover where classic players will jump into retail and visa verse.

What CC do you use? Most CCs charge an interest rate of 20 points so that's pretty standard. Sixteen is definitely better. And yes, they always charge more on cash advances, that's nothing new. Why the hell would you ever run a balance on a CC or take a cash advance to begin with? I've always used mine simply for convenience. I actually pay it off bi-weekly just so I'm not paying interest on anything. And I sure as hell would never take a cash advance with one unless were a literal matter of life and death.

Beamer wrote on Aug 16, 2019, 15:17:
16.x%-27.x% is incredibly common as an apr. That's why you're always advised to pay your card in full every month.

5.00 - 9.75%. I consider an APR above 10% trash.

My credit score is above 800.

Generally, only credit union cards have that low a rate. And zero perks. Since I always pay off, I'd much rather get significant cash back, or free vacations, and have a higher Apr that I'll never worry about.

"The house always wins." To get those perks most people end up paying more than if they had just saved up the money and bought the thing. But I get what you say.
