Man I thought the guy walking backwards filming the bears was going to give a full commentary on his slow demise.

A cold but lighter pre-spring feel here, how are those leaves up there, starting to turn a little? Starting to look like it's not worth hanging on?

I would say many of those comp setups are the result of just moving to your first shared appartment.
Gotta game while you save for up that office table.

wow
Playing through the early first stages of the doom campaign has taken me right back to 98 when I upgraded especially for the release of Unreal. I have it all turned up using g430 7.1 headphones & it is truly beautiful. The ambient sounds the atmosphere the change up of scale with the colorful detailed environments, wow.
Truly in awe & transported as I was with Unreal.

close this website

Has Blue ever missed a single day of updates? I've been reading this site daily for at least 15 years, and I honestly can't remember a single day that he didn't update at least a small update. I recall a few technical issues, but never a whole day without an update.

Wonder what he does when he's sick.

I was just on the phone to Stephen Hawking & he tells me Blue is the purest form of AI, so Advanced it has developed the desire to slack off every now & again.
To do what you ask? I don't profess to know, maybe cold dialing people to ask if their fridge is running or sit on reddit rick rolling unsuspecting commenters, who knows. But according to Stephen we are to all just carry on as usual, as though nothing is "amiss" because Terminator & everything.
Stephen just sent a follow up text, we should humour "him" about "his moving House."

"What, if anything, maintained an electrical current in Chuckís house?"
spoilers below
That whole condition Chuck had kept me coming back each week for BC Saul. The premise was central to much of went on so how they keep us interested now is gonna be the challenge. That & being robbed of the superb actor that is Michael McKean.

Money in reserve is what makes me happy, instant replacement of a vehicle that unexpectedly craps it's self. To know the bills are covered should a temporary case of tourette's break out in front of the boss.
Peace of mind & the ability to help others is extra moneys greatest gift.
Paying a stranger to do a half arsed job of the chores & rummage through my draws, no thanks.

For those maybe sitting on the fence the latest 384.94 WHQL drivers for nivida cards are a solid improvement.
I read the release notes & this fix got my attention being the owner of a 1070.
GTX 1070 [Doom] The GPU clocks remain running at high performance speeds after exiting from game.
Pages & text seem sharper as well
I did a basic custom clean install

Razer is reportedly working on a phone just for gamers

Speed Dial has Blues phone number programed so you can call & ask him about the long ago past where "lag" (similar to dark matter) had gamers needing to predict the opponents future position in order for them & the projectile to "coalesce". (look it up)
This was made easier with the help of performance "enhancers" or in common terms alcohol & marijuana, back before the devils lettuce was grown to industrial strengths & the only game possible is can I keep my saliva in my mouth.

Just a wee way into Doom love it, love the maps, beautiful.
Only having set it up all pretty I feel a need for the flashlight from the last doom, which btw I liked, in order to look around before exiting a room.
And don't shout such sacrilege as "turn your gamma up" ... philistines.

Well I posted the newegg link to the EVGA 1050ti for a reason having just bought the 1070 version.
As the user reviews state best build quality of the lot, quieter under load too.
I've done all the reviews EVGA nose ahead, would not go for the gigabyte it's pretty generic.

Yup, that's actually where I started from in looking at all the 1050, 1060, 1070, RX450-480's and narrowing it down to 1050's and 1060's. I appreciate the link. EGA looks to be the best for 1050ti's. It's just so weird getting back into the nVidia ecosystem again...but exciting, too! How's the 1070? (as if I need to ask Giggle )

What you spend in gas counters any savings.

Certainly seems that way but I don't like to wait. If it wasn't the weekend, I wouldn't mind so much but if I order it today, it won't get here until Tuesday/Wednesday. Or I could just take a an hour and some ride to Ocala....I just won't put the a/c on...

=-Rigs-=

The 1070 runs great but like I said the 1050ti will balance well with your comp specs giving you way more than you thought possible gaming into the future.
The EVGA 1050ti comes in the single fan SC & the higher spec twin fan SSC, if you can spend the little extra I would get the SSC
Let us know how things go.
