You know where the majority of people are that would strip his pockets & sleep like babies?
Upper management positions earning 150k plus.
The suited up intimidators that despise anything perceived as weak.

The Cassini spacecraft just crashed into Saturn.

Should be an interesting call to the insurance company.
INSURANCE "You have been telling everyone you planned to crash into the Planet"
NASA "No, no we thought we could make it past but it's a big obstacle & with all the shit coming off of it's rings."

Vega 56 vs 1070 should compare temperatures & noise.
Thats the deal breaker when both are so similar.
Iam constantly amazed with the cool temps & silent running of the evga 1070 & thats with a factory overclock.
Never gets above 62 degrees C & the fans never stress above 40% max max load, they then spin down in about 2 minutes & stop completely.
Give it 30 minutes just on the net & Im idling at around 27 degrees, a full 10 degrees under the 37 dgrees C the reviews have them at idle.
This has inspired me to name my computer "The fridge"

I will say I have liquid cooling no other overclocks & the case has great airflow, a chill glass side & aeration holes on top.
But still amazing.

So let's cut 8% of the workforce. Because God forbid we'd ride it out and give the CEO a 12% raise instead of a 15% raise. Fuckers.

It's Legos own fault, they built themselves into a corner.

I thought the "watercooler Jam" link was going to be a video of an actual cpu watercooler jaming & pissing water every which way inside a high end computer instantly frying the lot.
I can't tell you how disapointed I was to find a small asian girl slow dancing with kitchen implements.

Not quite sure what was more scary. The monster or the blatant waste of cocaine.
Cool video, now why can't Hollywood make something half this decent.
I lost track of the number of influences jammed into one teaser trailer..... I lost track because of it's faultless production & performances.
Hollywood is gonna start asking questions of those demanding 250 million dollar budgets by pointing at projects like this made on a shoestring.

Yeah about starting from scratch with Arma 3 control assignments.
Just dont.
Its fine until a task suddenly gets technical in the Campaign & the hints have no presets loaded & well it's a cluster fuck.
Went back & fashioned my prefered assignments from the Industry standard presets.
The sheer amount of options seems OTT even for a "simulator" but the game rewards with beautiful open world environments, atmosphere & complexity even I can work through.

66% off Arma 3 on steam
Been waiting for this sale.
Played a shit ton of Operation Flashpoint back in the day.
Co-op in that, Arma & Arma 2 was the best.
Just had a quick look around & as expected it's a job setting up controls etc. Started with the blank preset for controls as there are so many you could spend two days just chasing conflicts.
Now origin just needs to move Medal of Honor Warfighter to "origin Access" & I can exercise my maniacal Laugh.

Been a crazy few days. The first night my phone was blowin up with emergency alerts, serve storm , tornado, flash flood; I get it, shit's hittin the fan . Been safe at my place though, power only went out for a few minutes, the biggest worry has been flooding, kept waking up last night to make sure my complex's lot wasn't flooding. Though, if it was not sure what I could do as everything else around here is lower than the lot. Thankfully we've had a lull in the rain giving things a chance to drain off, and as much as I miss my newly formed lakeside view(the lot across from me is a lower and filled up), I feel a lot better knowing it's drained off and can fill up again is need be. They're saying we could get 40-50 inches before this is all over, which is an insane amount of rain. Hopefully not, cause while I'm high and dry I know there are a lot of areas in town that are currently underwater, and they certainly don't need more of it.




Having just got through a couple of close calls with flooding as we exit Winter I wish you luck. Spring is really lighting up around these parts in the last 3-4 days, I did the first lawn mow for some time & man is the grass thick after periods of torrential rain we got through August.

I had no idea that the Air Canada plane only cleared the stacked aircraft on the ground by just 69 feet. WTF
The only thing that betrays any kind of panic is the clipped speed of air traffic controls "Air Canada go around"
Kind of surreal how the pilot's voice stays in character as he powers on with no time to spare.
Even though his response is calm you can hear the I'am so fucked filling his head.
Mistakes on both sides but that Air Canada crew needs to be assigned new jobs loading planes not flying them.
