I'll buy it to throw Ironclad some cash. I'd like to see another SoSE after this MOBA bandwagoning is concluded.

I wonder what it's like to drive that. Shameless segue: I've been driving a 1972 Triumph GT6...

Nice! Judging by the pic, your's is a Mk II?

My Dad had a Spitfire 1500 when I was a kid that he bought new back in '74. After spending hundreds of hours ironing out the problems with typical British "engineering" (Lucas electrics, anyone?) and tuning the Hell out of it, it was a really fun little car to drive. It wasn't necessarily quick, as you pointed out with your GT6, but damn if it didn't handle like it was on rails. It was a really satisfying to take it up in to the hill country and carve corners with it.

Unfortunately, like all British cars of that era, it developed a problem with body cancer that was just unstoppable due to the humidity of where we live.

I've always toyed with the notion of getting a TR8 and swapping out the somewhat anemic Buick V8 for a Cosworth DFV. That would be a flying little car!

The desk situation bothered me enough that a couple of years ago, I just racked everything. I now have a little 4'x3' desk that has monitor arms for the monitors, the keyboard, mouse, speakers, lamp, and KVM switch. Now all of my gear takes up a hair more than 7' of linear floor space as the rack is right next to the desk.

I wish Garriot were working on a single-player spiritual successor to Ultima 6 or 7. Instead, he's currently polishing the turd that is the spiritual successor to UO.

It's less UO and more Tabula Rasa 2.0. Not the Tabula Rasa that was released as an MMO, but the Tabula Rasa he was working on before that which was bi-corns, musical weapons, spiritual "magic" and a bunch of other crazy shit. The kind of things old hippies see when they drop acid and watch The Last Unicorn.

So...Australia.

Will we be driving through the ever present wildfires awash in a color palette of brown, grey, and orange?

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE (except for the fact that I don't have a VR device and really don't want one).

Couldn't we just get a updated Bridge Commander with VR?

I'd settle for an updated BC.

Why in the world would you ever need 4 1080's in a SLI setting?

Because reasons.

...he/she/it...

<sighs>

Don't you know that the preferred, approved, totally-not-obnoxious pronoun groups are as follows: he, she, one, it, they, s/he, she/he,', Elverson group, Humanist, Jee, Ney, Peh, Per, Sipvak group, Thon, Ve, Xe, Yo, zie, zir, hir, ze, mer, and Zhe?


Language conventions be damned! It's all about the feels! You just can't go around using the commonly known pronouns that are definitive. What kind of backwoods hillbilly are you? Rolleyes

Anyway, this isn't about performance, this is about getting away from the reliance on Microsoft and DX, which is never a bad thing, imo.

Quoted for truth.

The only thing keeping a Windows install around on my machine is to play games. If Vulkan takes off and developers use it for the games I would like to play, then I can get rid of Windows entirely.
