I clicked on this, I expected twice what I read....

There's a certain joy I get, knowing Blue will find this thread tomorrow morning as apart of his next update, and thinking "those assholes..."


Not at all... not sure how I introduced this error, but that's on me.

Fair enough. It's been a long time since I've had a top-of-the-line system, and with a Rift on its way and it seeming like it will be possible to pull this off relatively cheaply compared to the past, I think I will try to put together a reasonably high-end machine.

This may be off, as I haven't delved too far into pricing yet, but at this point I'm thinking an i7, GTX 1080, SSD machine seems doable for well under three grand... I'm guessing maybe $2500.

Over the next couple of days I'll see how correct that pricing assumption is, and start looking at alternatives as well as specific components. I'll also have to decide what version of Windows I want to install.

I'll probably shoot to get this all to come together around the end of the month which is when to expect the release of the 1080 and the delivery of my Rift.

Feel free to offer feedback.

I wonder how many people actually celebrate Cinco de Mayo to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

Just seems like an excuse to party.

After watching the new teens react, I understand why they made the new Doom a Halo clone in many ways. That's what the kids/teens market wants, it's all they know.

Edit: It was awesome to hear the girl who played it before say that the new one had a generic futuristic look instead of the scarier and demonic one of the originals.

In a super-weird coincidence, the smurfs were over yesterday, and asked for a shooter game to play. I set them up with DOOM on the Xbox 360 and they had a real hard time figuring it out. It was like my own "teens react" preview.

Felling pretty pumped after last nights Thrones! What a great episode...

I agree -- sure did break from the perception that they save all the action and big twists for the last two episodes of the season.

Of course if rumors about the last two seasons being shortened are correct, then they only have like 20-24 more episodes to wrap everything up, so we may maintain a greater sense of urgency going forward.

I too find that strange that it was all removed - it said more about him than it was offencive to anyone (well me at lest).

I can see that maybe Blue does not want that shit storm of a debate happerning here, but by just REMOVING it I don't think helps over all.

Blues place, Blues rules though.

As usual, I let everyone play as they wanted until a post got reported. Then I just cleared out all the posts calling people names. It's not the topic of debate, in this case it's the inability to avoid saying things like "You're an asshole because..." or "liberal douchebag" or "sometimes you're a douchecanoe." Fighting is one thing, but name calling flamewars just escalate.

And some of the posts got deleted because they quote deleted posts.

It's actually pretty hard to get posts deleted here. Congrats to all of you who have been working extra hard to bring it to this.

Would you kindly f-off to Red Pill or somewhere similarly appropriate

You just can't handle anyone having a different opinion. So no.

I would suggest that part of this conflict stems from your desire to shoehorn the phrase SJW into any thread you can. It's one thing to hold a viewpoint, it's another thing to view everything through that lens.

I'm curious - what are "computer glasses"? Are these like reading glasses, but also corrective? Would I be able to get computer glasses that correct my astigmatism while also zooming in a bit at computer monitor distances, unlike reading glasses which only work on books?

Blue and others can tell you more but my understanding is they are set for a certain focal length (the distance from your eyes to your monitor) and could have some proprietary coatings that inhibit glare and some select color spectrums (like the dreaded blue wavelength)
And also adjust for astigmatism just like normal prescription glasses.

That about covers my understanding of the situation completely.

I have an astigmatism myself and these provide perfect correction.

Nice story Blue!

So looking at the HOTS lobby are you BlueHair (Lunara)?

Yes. I had an okay game. Got blown up a couple of times and did some damage. My one real big mistake (besides grouping for a couple of maws) was when Cho'gall survived with that nice disengage from the bottom toward the middle and I stuck around with no health long enough to feed a death. Other than that I had to split soak bottom against Pally during the objectives and just stayed cautious to avoid being caught out alone with my lack of escapes, which was compounded by being a little intimidated. So I just turtled up pretty good and did my job without trying to go for a solo kill on him.

Still hard to believe that really happened randomly like that. So cool.

My result was Moderate Deutan. They say:

Moderate deutans usually respond very positively to the EnChroma lens. We believe there is a 90% chance that EnChroma glasses will help your color vision.

Also, I thought Snyder's Watchmen was pretty awesome. Why does everyone hate on that flick?

That's the point I wanted to add here... glad to see I'm not the only one. I think he did an outstanding job on The Watchmen, including improving the hell out of the way the story concludes. I have nothing positive to say about Man of Steel, but I think The Watchmen was a home run.
