I remember playing the demo/prologue of this a while back.

The tutorial was a mess that fell all over itself, presented things out of order, and the game had menu/info box spawning from Hell

Hopefully they have addressed that because it, sadly, made the game unplayable.

Even though I am still rocking a mix of 5XXX and 3XXX processors, I think I am going to skip this generation and wait for the next to see if power and thermal efficiency improves.

I'm not sure how I missed this when it came originally dropped. Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, ten stand alone episodes from 2017 on amazon.
I keep meaning to watch that. Maybe once I've caught up on RoP and Andor.

I recommend it as well. It's one of the few shows I don't regret watching from beginning to end.

Angry inside because you missed it?

No. I go all the way back to PBEM over BBSes for "multiplayer". Go back to "Adventure" (precursor to Zork) on the Microdata 3200 running PL/I and interfacing with it via a Wang terminal. I haven't missed out on anything gaming related so far.

Probably will after I die, though. Unless there is a way to uplink synaptic firing patterns to a digital platform.

The Steam Deck selling so much has a major upside to me and that is...every single one of them is a Linux install that will require devs who want to have their games play on the Deck put in at least a little effort to making them Proton compatible if not a native binary.

"Can Brown Noise Help You Sleep?"

If the headline is a question, the answer is always "no". Outside of maybe some psychosomatic and idiosyncratic leanings, there's no data that suggests any "color" of noise helps with claimed benefit. Plus, it is good to remember that the plural of "anecdote" is not "data".
A good code brown helps me sleep, once the adrenalin wears off.

Alas, nothing like that helps me sleep. In fact, in situations where I get a massive rush of adrenaline, it is far more likely that I won't sleep until the following evening at the earliest.

But, the bonus is that I have plenty of time to sort that family sized bag of M&Ms in to not just colors, but variations in shape, too!

All the other stores are shelves in your garage...

I'd rather hang out in my garage. It's air conditioned, my tools are there, my Lightning is there, and if the floor gets dirty it's easy to clean with the leaf blower. Hell, give me the square footage of my garage and I could live comfortably in there with a bathroom, kitchen, and everything else.

But, yeah, I don't get the whaaarrrgabl over storefronts, either. I buy from wherever the Hell I like and whatever the Hell I like. Plus, with the unabated shovelware and asset flips titles on Steam, it's been morphing in to the game version of Walmart for a while.

Growing up, I remember when Ivory soap was also in granuels in powdered soap dispensers in school bathrooms and gas stations alike. It could scrub dirt, grease, oil and, if you weren't careful, the top layer of your skin off like no other. Not even Gojo worked as well.

The bar soap I miss the most is Jergen's. Like Ivory, it was free of perfumes and parabens but wore like iron while still giving you a good lather. A bar would last a month even if you showered/bathed twice a day.

You should never, ever need to spy on your direct reports. If you do, you're a shitty manager/supervisor/boss. Trying to measure productivity by action is one of the dumbest means of attempting to measure anything and it only shows how narcissistic and controlling the person deploying it is.

I've said it in the past and I'll say it again: milestones. No-one works the same way because not no-one thinks the same way. Trying to pigeonhole all your people in to the same criteria is fundamentally flawed and, quite frankly, stupid. So long as people hit their milestone and quality review passes, how they work is completely irrelevant.

But, alas, in the US middle management on up have this factory floor management style left over from 70 years ago where "X widgets per hour = productivity" in their intractable brains. Work-life balance to them means sacrificing your life for their work.

Hey I heard ALL school shootings are fake! So why prepare??

In case you have to stand around in a parking lot and do nothing while innocents are slaughtered en masse. Or stand around in a hallway with fucking Crocs on. Or stand next to that guy and fuck around on your phone on social media. With the Punisher logo as your lock screen wallpaper, of course, so you can prove to your buddies what a total badass you are instead of the spineless pussy you know yourself to be when you're alone.

Being a cowardly poser takes practice.

Louise Fletcher was always an amazing villainess whether from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest to Deep Space Nine.

I always found her unconventionally attractive.

Her quote of "I love that you hate me" was a graceful acceptance of her typecasting.
