ha, read as HARDBALL and thought, "Man, Hardball was probably one of the best baseball games out there back in the day"

True that. Loved me some Hardball.

That 35 inch screen must be a joke... 1080p on that aspect at that size? Enjoy the pixels.

Would be decent if it was 4k though. Oh well. Guess this underperforming brand intends to remain underperforming.

I think we're at a crossroads of monitor bandwidth where tradeoffs are required. You can't push that many pixels and achieve "esports" refresh rates.

Also, competitive players all seem to use 1080p anyway.

Happy B-day Gman. Getting ready to put one of our dogs down. The Dr gave us some time with meds, but probably will have to be soon. Has several growths in his belly, lost 20 pounds in a month, not eating, etc etc etc. Killing me. On prednazone and some other drugs to get him to eat and be comfy. We are told he isn't in pain, but he won't recover. fml.

Aw man, that's horrible. You have all my sympathies.

Uh, Blue, we just ended Daylight Saving Time for the year. That's why your timezone shifted from EDT (Eastern Daylight Time) to EST (Eastern Standard Time) at 2am last night. If you dislike the earlier sunsets that means you dislike Standard time, not Daylight Saving time.

Did anyone honestly miss Xen? It was the worst part of the original game.

I've always considered this the elephant in the room of this situation.

If stainless steel is good enough for snobby elitist restaurants, its good enough for my shitty steaks.

I don't think you're going to find many steaks cooked on stainless steel in those snobby elitist restaurants.

As for cast iron vs stainless in general, to mimic the style of as seen on TV commercials:

Glad to hear MrsBlue is ok.
Remember not to take the first insurance offer, I've heard that they are low-balling bastidges on the first go-around.

Thanks for the suggestion, I didn't know such things were open to negotiation. This is a first accident for either of us, so I'm unfamiliar with the process.

Well, the form factor of the phone is one of the things I like about it, including the curve. I think the actual Edge interface/software is just a gimmick.

I'll probably live to regret it, but I got a case with bumpers that seem to ensure the glass won't strike the floor if it's dropped without making it too clunky. I probably drop my phone about twice a year, so I'm hoping that if I'm careful it will be okay.

Det. William 'Billy' Rosewood: You know, it says here that by the time the average American is fifty, he's got five pounds of undigested red meat in his bowels. (Beverly Hills Cop, 1984)

32 years later... make that ten pounds?

Well, since the original factoid is not true, probably not. Apologies to Dr./Detective Rosewood.

May I be the one to dramatically lower the intellectual level? I absolutely love Ash vs. Evil Dead. Childish, totally over the top, hilarious, going beyond everything that is decent, and with only one goal: to make you laugh your ass off while shaking your head in denial of what you have just watched.

Yeah, this came up a few times last year. Both Ash vs. Evil Dead and Blunt Talk are amazing. Starz is killing it.

All the links (GMG, Humble and Steam) are pointing to a game called Of Kings And Men. It has nothing to do with Space.

GMG getting the link to their own store wrong. Perfect.

Fixed that, thanks.

Dennis Ritchie died 5 years ago. I think HardOCP either forgot or got hit by one of those weird regurgitated instances from Reuters/AP?

Yeah, not sure what happened there. Should've noticed it myself... we reported his death when it actually occurred.

I removed the link to avoid confusion.

And WTF is with people and hairless cats?
Allergies.

I wondered if that might work for MrsBlue...

We've done a little investigating, and apparently hairless cats are *worse* for allergies. The allergen is dander, which is dried skin flakes exacerbated by grooming, so the hairless ones produce more of it. We'd heard Persian cats are actually better for allergies because of the long hair preventing them from licking their skin so much. This seemed to be the case when we successfully attended a get-together last year at a home with a Persian. Definitely counter-intuitive.

There's no legitimate reason really, they provide no value and just insert themselves as some sort of content aggregator. When people have asked in the past the owner just says that he posts what people send him.

Seriously, it's the place I found the goddamn video. I don't see how this is so hard to appreciate. When people ask "the owner" explains it every time.

It's just like all the Kotakus and Shacknewses of the world who have found "no legitimate reason" for mentioning that a game story they are reporting was spotted here over years and years. Content aggregators serve a role in the process, and I won't be someone who goes around ignoring that like 90% of the internet at 99.9% of gaming sites.
