I'm utterly burned out on comic book movies. I was even slightly bored by Infinity War. In fact. there's nothing out or coming, with the exception of Sicario 2, that even interests me.

Yay! Now I don't have to wait for the Chinese to try and hack my game library, they can just do it right from within the client itself!

She's a...less than stellar human being. What she did, and continues to do, shows an egregious sense of self-entitlement and self-righteousness. ArenaNet dismissing her is the proper course of action given that her actions directly impacted the company for which she previously worked. "B...b...but HARRASMENT! GENDER!" etc. are not acceptable excuses or justification for her behavior. As an adult, and as a professional, there is never a time when it is acceptable for you to lose your temper and throw a tantrum deserving of a two year old. You are in control of you, end of story.

Yesterday was the quietest fourth of July I can recall. We had our city's firework show, and that was it basically. Other than the occasional firecracker I heard almost nothing last night. And there was no lingering smoke at all, unlike previous years. Anyone experience anything different?
All was quiet here on the western front. The 4th falling on a Wednesday probably had something to do with it and thankfully we have had some rain over the last couple of days so fires created by the sparklies were sparse.
Good point about it being a Wednesday. I wondered if the current political climate was putting a damper on celebrating, but you live in TX, so that shouldn't have been the case there.

You throwing shade on we Texans? Kidding, I know you're not.

I think the rains had a lot to do with it and that it was a Wednesday, too. Also, there is a general malaise about patriotism, at least local to where I live. No one's really "America...FUCK YEAH" and I saw fewer American flags flying than I've seen previously.

In general, I don't think the general population is feeling the USA much. Almost as if we're truly becoming ashamed of the country we have become.

ME:A committed, in my world, one of the greatest sins any game can; it was boring. The only somewhat interesting character out of the lot was Jaal. I recently picked it up again about six weeks ago and made it as far as New Tuchunka before giving up again. I literally just don't care about any of the characters and every quest is a FedEx quest.

If anyone remembers the GeForce 7950 X2, I foresee that type of card design as the future for VR. Provided VR ever gets off the ground as something more than a niche market. More dies, faster interconnects, and what basically becomes a mini render farm in your PC.

Burrito, got any links for managing insomnia etc.? Is that with CBD?

There are some basic, general guidelines for managing non-chronic, infrequent insomnia:

*No caffeine intake at least four hours prior to attempting to sleep.

*Turn off the TV, get out from in front of your computer, and put the phone down. Try reading for about an hour before bedtime.

*Exercise more daily. Even something so simple as a walk in the park or around a couple of blocks helps. If, like me, you live out in the sticks, go to your local high school and do four laps of the outermost ring on the track. That's one mile. Work up to twenty laps.

*Stay hydrated throughout the day. That does not mean soda, coffee, or tea. Plain old water is your go to for this.

*No spicy foods for at least three hours prior to attempting to sleep. Spicy foods stimulate the human body which can lead to wakefulness.

If you are experiencing insomnia regularly, please go see your doctor about it ASAP. They'll probably send you to a sleep study (which sucks because your actual amount of sleep during the study is very little but that is not the point) where they'll get a baseline reading on your neural activity levels. The results will be sent to your GP who will either work with you directly to address the cause of your insomnia or send you to a sleep specialist.

No, I do not use CBD. I flatout smoke the leaf. CBDs are not in a high enough concentration to assist me with the cause of my insomnia. However, it does help others with their insomnia. So try it first if you have regular bouts of insomnia before moving on to stronger means of abatement.

Personally, I think there's a ton of bullshit surrounding how much of a medical miracle marijuana is but there are definitely some good things buried under that bullshit.

I think there is a lot of FUD and hype around the issue in general. I can only speak from personal experience with chronic insomnia. Outside of some really heavy duty sedatives that leave me in a drooling, zombie like state for 24 hours after taking them, marijuana really helps manage it. I've posted extensively on this topic previously here so I won't repeat myself.

What this means is that we won't see "disputed" mechs like the Warhammer in Battletech or the Marauder.

That's a lot of floorway walking, I hope the new ceo has a tennis shoe sponsor. {wink}

Heh. That was then, not now. Intel was a smaller company back then. I don't know about the other locations, but I know that Andy would show up at HF and JF yearly.

What employee speaks highly of a CEO...

In my time at Intel, we spoke highly of Andy Grove. Unlike most CEOs, he would routinely show up at a campus and walk the floor unannounced. He would sit down with you and ask you how you liked working for Intel, what Intel could do better, and how he could help make both your job and Intel better.

While Krzanich may have been a chump, he wasn't the total fucking loser that Barrett was. Had Barrett been at any other company that didn't have as much inertia or financial reserves as Intel, he would have cratered that company.

This game is actually quite fun if u have some humor in your sole...right now u play by yourself..when they add duels so u and your buddy can play together it will be a keeper...

I don't get this response from a semantic view. You'll expressly employ a vowel as a substitution for the word "you"...but you'll type out "your" and "yourself" which are much longer words. So there isn't any time saved in omitting both "y" and "o". "But it's textspeak!" OK, but then if you're muscle memory is that ingrained, you'd type out "ur" and "urself".

Or is this some /btard/4chan psyop fuckery that I am not aware of?

Isn't it more a test of how good your monitor is?

I scored 0 on my seven year old Dell U2410

I think so. I scored a 0 as well on an older Samsung Syncmaster.
Take this test https://enchroma.com/pages/test
I scored MODERATE PROTAN
What is a protan?
Protans are people with protanomaly, a type of red-green color blindness in which the red cones do not detect enough red and are too sensitive to greens, yellows, and oranges.

As a result, greens, yellows, oranges, reds, and browns may appear similar, especially in low light. It can also be difficult to tell the difference between blues and purples, or pinks and grays.

I got "Normal Color Vision".
