We don't have substitutes for smartphones.

We don't need any, we already all have smartphones, which is why their growth is falling off. For the smartphone industry to sustain the way it's operated in the past we'd need to find an undiscovered continent/planet of new potential customers.

Do you give the Gunnar-man a trick treatment each spring? You know the stuff you drop on the back of their neck?

He wears a prescription flea collar my vet swears by as being better than those drops. I'm not wild about an insecticide collar, but it seems preferable to infusing the dog's entire skin with insecticide. But maybe I just think to much about these things.

Definitely a good idea to see a doctor. As Brian mentioned, you should check for bull's eye (erythema migrans) rash which is present in 70-80% of cases (ie most but not all). Here are the symptoms (from the CDC website):

http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/signs_symptoms/

Then again, it might just be a cold, but definitely best to check.

Good luck!

Yeah, I see no rash, but I have had the fever, chills, headache, fatigue, and muscle and joint aches. Probably nothing, but better safe than sorry.

Might want to check for any red bulls eyes on your body and perhaps get a test for Lyme Disease. Your symptoms are typical and you can never be too careful in this part of the country. Good luck!

That seems like a very relevant point. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow.

He was great last night... I was surprised, however, that they made such a point of announcing him joining the cast for the season for a one-off appearance in episode 7. Certainly fits your thought that he was only in GoT as a Deadwood teaser...

Blizzard wouldn't implement a loot system of a billion gun combinations and at the end of the day only a handful of them are actually worth getting.

Sounds like someone didn't play the Auction House version of Diablo III.

It will be supported till GTA 6 comes out. Then they will milk the new one even harder and make SP more scripted and lame (ie cheaper to knock out).

How could gameplay in GTA be more scripted than it is already? Have the game drive and shoot for you between the endless lengthy cutscenes?

That gator video is fucking nuts...I don't even want to guess what that thing eats.

Anything it wants to!

The nuttiest part is the other guy videoing it that keeps appearing in the frame. I kept wondering if that guy had any idea how fast alligators run. The answer is 11 mph, so I'm guessing even that monster could outrun a 60 year-old-golfer.

Get Gunnar a mohawk!

I second this!

I did once leave him with a big mop of hair on top that made him look a little like Kramer from Seinfeld.

As for style, he always get what's called a puppy cut... basically very short all over except his legs, ears, tail, and the top of his head. Combined with his slightly short stature he's always confused with other breeds and mixes.

Memorial Day is Monday, though many companies also let people out early today as part of the long weekend.

To be honest, even if Facebook were not a giant asshole company building some absurd walled garden, this one issue is why I will go for 2nd gen VR made by the competition, where they add some dioptric adaptive lenses to the deal, something binoculars have for 100 years now! Admittedly the lense issue is more complex in the goggles...

Surely there must be a way for these VR goggles to work without glasses/contact based eye correction...

Apparently the HTC Vive is much more accommodating of glasses, so if that's accurate then there's a way.

Hey Blue.....

How useful was that virtual desktop?

It will take some playing with, and my glasses may be part of the problem, but I find text pretty hard to read in my first couple of times fooling around with it.

I really need to keep an ear out for Widowmaker's ultimate pop, and just hold back until it's finished.

It's apparently intentionally quieter than most of them, and you will not hear it if you are not within a certain range of her.

You already have the case sorted I assume? I use a Fractal-Design Define R5 and even with the fan controllers on low my temps are very acceptable. It's also damned quiet, I can't even tell the thing is on half the time. I can't remember what CPU cooler I'm using, I think its a Cooler-Master but most of those giant aluminum/copper heat pipe monstrosities are the same.

Be careful if you get a stock video card, they can be loud. I usually wait for Asus or MSI to release something custom.

A buddy of mine went entirely passive for his build but it cost a fortune so I wouldn't recommend it.

Definitely not going all passive, and probably not water-cooled. Quiet is fine, I don't need silent. Working on figuring out the case first, as it will be a vital ingredient in the sound recipe. The R5 is definitely a contender, I've seen lots of good things written about it. Looking into other choices now if anyone has recommendations. I would say I value cool quiet operation and styling over any concerns about how large or heavy it is as far as priorities go.

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.
