HolArt and music is based on all those insane old cartoons from the 1930s.

That would be the Max Fleischer style. He did things way, way before Warner Brothers and Disney ever thought of doing them and a lot of what they did do was based off his pioneering techniques. For example, a lot of the old animated films that look like they are quasi three dimensional is based on his invention of the Rotoscope.

Y'all think Win10 is bad about forced reboots? Try Server 2016 which has the same forced reboot policy. "B...b...but you can set active hours!" Yeah, about that, see when you have a PDC and you have users that access your network 24/7/365 from both local and remote locations and you use AD as your authentication schema, that becomes problematic.

In a way, though, it has been a blessing in disguise. It has finally woken up some of my fellow sysadmins who have had their heads shoved way up MS' ass and we're looking at better, Linux based solutions for a lot of what we do.

Thanks, Blue. Things are getting better, albeit slowly which is to be expected. While the nation focuses on Houston, there are areas which were much harder hit and need far more assistance. Those people are going to need a longer amount of time to recover than a metroplex area due to a lack of resources, manpower, and development. But, hey, we're Texans. Beating the odds is what we do.

Wow first Rune now Aquanox?!? Welcome to the 90's revival!

I know, right? Both games I loved back in the day. Aquanox always felt like a spiritual successor to Subwar 2050 to me and I really enjoyed it. We need more sub games so I'm happy to see this provided it isn't MP focused and twitch heavy.

Is there really no market anymore for a game like Privateer?

Sadly, no.

Well, there's Everspace but it's not exactly a great game.

Done buying expensive monitors when a TV works just as well. Got a 4k 32" tv for $350 the other day and it works great.

I'm in the same boat. When 4K TVs with a 120Hz refresh rate become commonplace and inexpensive, I'll upgrade my PC monitors with them. The games I play most in no way benefit from the current crop of $600-$800 monitors.

I am willing to give Egosoft the benefit of the doubt with X4. Yes, Rebirth was not what it should or could have been. They absolutely fell flat on their face with it. However, X2, X3, X:TC, and X:AP were all really solid and fun games that I dumped thousands of hours in to happily.

I'll wait and see how X4 shakes out but I am certain that they are doing their utmost to not repeat Rebirth.

Can a game that simulates so many different kinds of racing be good at any of them?

From the previews I've been seeing, the answer seems to be an overwhelming "yes".

The bottom line, bummer.

I don't think anyone expected a whole lot out of their GPU line so I think this level of performance was expected.

Pfft. That's newb level. Anyone with a lick of sense about security has already blocked ad farms and malware on the network level.
I have a bunch of ad networks blocked in hosts, but I find some pages take forever to load as the search for the ad site.

Squid proxy on your LAN if they are sites you visit regularly.

Grr. Corsair has had my memory for a month, and still hasn't sent me new ones. I even got them on chat last week and they said they would get it out.


Corsair's customer support is a fucking joke and absolutely terrible. After the total fiasco I had with them and a bad power supply, I haven't given them a further cent. It's not worth the headache.
