Thanks for all the suggestions - after mulling and asking around further, I decided on an Arctis 7 wireless headset (for the gaming PC) - I have a wired headset for music production on a separate system.

First wireless headset ever, have heard good things about it, will see what my experience is like when it arrives on 6/2.

Less than a year after my Razer Electra v2 USB headset was purchased, the headset is no longer being recognized fully on any of my systems.

macOS "sees" it in System Information, but does not list it in Sound Preferences; Windows does not recognize it in any way whatsoever, except as an "Unknown USB Device (Invalid Configuration Description)".

No drivers to download or install. One suggestion is to attempt a firmware update - which only works if the headset is detected in the first place! Yay, Catch-22.

I remember once a month or so ago that the headset, after some coaxing, decided to function again (sans earcup lighting) as a "Conexant USB Audio" device - after which a firmware update -was- possible. No such luck, so far.

It had otherwise been cutting out for no known reason after so long in use during a session, which was resolved by disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable.

All that to say - I'm pretty fed up with this headset, which I'm sad about as to my ears, it sounds great, and is comfortable to wear. Does anyone have any suggestions for wired headsets? (I would prefer not to go wireless, for reasons.)

Thanks to anyone who responds,

Not terribly impressed either.

Have been playing Elite Dangerous: Horizons since... December or so after a friend got me into it - and he had stopped playing a while after I got into it, as he had been grinding for a while already. Have been following on update progress through the player community.

I love the visuals while traveling through star systems and on planets (and expect that aspect to be improved upon Odyssey's arrival). And some of the ships and missions are neat.

If there is a storyline, it's buried under lots of grinding and travel. So, I don't really pay attention to the story as much as I would / should, otherwise. EDIT: Also stories in the number of books and previous games that had come out.

Back to Odyssey: The updates as reported so far - both by FDev and the players who are reporting - while the players want to be optimistic (and so do I), I'm afraid it'll be more like CoD in space, with some on-foot data-gathering missions and combat. No on-foot travel through your own ship, provided the ship is large enough, and not just a sardine can with you strapped in to the pilot seat.

Hoping for the best, but will not be surprised if it falls flat a bit.

And just scrolling and glancing at the title I almost thought this was an offshoot of Neon Genesis: Evangelion. But, that's "NERV". Whoops.

We need UBI, I think.. But that's another conversation, probably.

Aliens? Could be. Could also be something that happens once every eon.

Glowing platypuses: Neat pictures, and also makes me think of how - given many other animals see in UV at least in part - some humans are able to see UV light after surgical removal of the lens.

Minecraft for Christmas: If staged, done very well, imo.

Army ants: Holy crap, that's amazing. Also, "Don't do drugs.... often." and various gaffes, however intentional or not.

Walking is hard: I am not sure what's going on with the fellow having so many difficulties while the rest seem to be proceeding just fine, and according to the comments, he was not drunk.

Gaming memes - yep, accurate.

Microtransactions: I would hope folks have more sense than to spend their cents like that.

Coffee and wine: I resembled wine last night as I got a bit tipsy for my birthday yesterday. Haven't had coffee yet...

Ghosts coming back to haunt me, seems.

My father had that same type of turntable (he passed in 2001).

My mother passed this past Friday. Things are not easy / relationship was... complicated. Still processing.

Happy birthday to Blue's News! I'm a lurker for the most part, but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading articles posted through here, and especially enjoyed the exploits and (mis)adventures of Blue and Co. in "Out of the Blue"/"Into The Black".

Just pulling up to the site now for today, can see it just fine, so hoping issues have been resolved!

And yes, vouching for Blue's News reliability / uptime as a visitor since... 2000? I've lost count.

Thanks, Kxmode and Frans for all the work put in to the redesign - and for all the work done behind the scenes over the years that I've been mostly lurking / visiting and sometimes posting.

Took a walk earlier this afternoon. Here are a small bunch of photos taken.

Hey everyone, I'm here, I'm alive and fortunately able to work from home. Have not been out since last Monday, not risking at all due to underlying health issues.

Helping folks in the local community online where I am, trying to keep folks (and myself) sane through occasional music, and really thinking we need to metaphorically de-rootkit, or otherwise format and reinstall from re-examined, peer-reviewed, tested source through a modern compiler. (Poor metaphor, but eh.)

Just updated.

The interface looks extremely cluttered, now.

There's miniature icon to the left of each title in the games list on the left-hand side in the Library view; along with that, a tile-like listing of the games in a larger area on the right-hand side of the Steam client. Top left above the games list (text titles with miniature icons), several different fields squished together.

What in hell. UI/UX has taken a step back, methinks.

Not a fan, either, given what I've read of its history. I've been running Slackware 14.2 (and Windows 10 for games) for about a year or so and have been actively trying to migrate what non-game and Windows/Mac-only music software I can over to Slackware. Have been learning a lot in the process regarding configuration and compiling from source.

Of course - that osrt of thing is not everyone's cup of tea. But, here I am, with bash scripts I wrote to, say, automagically connect to wireless connections on command line. (I'm not entirely "hardcore", I guess - but I try.)

Edited for clarity. Tired.

As someone with Czech heritage (first-born in the USA of two naturalizad parents), I thought it more appropriate to attribute the demonstrated car-making processes to cyber-Vikings.

EDIT - Also, this.
