However WinRAR does a lot more than 7 zip

I seriously doubt that... Explain?

It has up-to-date versions for more than just Windows (a lot more and this matters to people who use other operating systems, so big one). Has proper CLI support across those (instead of just what little p7zip has). Has full support for more archive and image formats. Additional encryption and self extraction options. I mean you have to ask me something more specific really. Otherwise with I am just going to be relisting info from their websites.

If you just need basic BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, ZIP, and 7's own capabilities for Windows then 7z is just fine and has been for a very long time. That was my point. If you want to do a bit more WinRAR has those options too.

About WinRAR... people still use it? 7-zip replaced WinRAR/Winzip/Winace more than a decade ago.

Longer ago than that if just used it as a random zip replacement. However WinRAR does a lot more than 7 zip, most people just donít need to support that many archive, image, etc formats.

Ok winrar, I'll upgrade you now.

In this case, being a software license holder actually has a surprising number of perks if you check the fine print!

TTK still 0.01 seconds?

What do you do in a game where people actually lose HP? BFV is insanely long. You can basically fight each other for days across a field hitting them 3-4 times every time they poke up and you doing the same. Even the sniper rifles, hit to the chest or side of the head? Nah, they are still good. They will even heal up before they pop out again so they can take repeat chest shots! It needs a hardcore mode if anything.

Let me guess, Windows 10 exclusive? (Maybe even Windows 11 exclusive, depending on release date?)

Since they mention Steam, I don't think that is very likely. I would be fine with it though if it was xplatform play for all the co-op elements.

Anyone watch Russian Doll on Netflix? I hate the lead actress. Hated every character. Found the show insanely entertaining.

Ya loved it. Originally found the lead annoying

I don't think I ever found it annoying, but it is safe to say I would probably not have watched it all if I had full access to the remote :p

And that would have been my loss! It ended up being pretty good.

I imagine that EAC is useless, but not more than say PunkBuster or <x> other non working cheat detection.

That said these numbers seem rather high for a new game, or has that become normal now?

So Blackthorne, too, yeah?

IIRC you can download that from Battle.net and have been able to for a while now.

EDIT: Yep, Blackthorne, The Lost Vikings, and Rock n' Roll Racing are all up for free at https://us.battle.net/account/download/.

Plenty to repair on Italian sports cars.

He was talking about Alfa Romeo rather than Maserati, but I half remember a Jeremy Clarkson quote that was something to the effect of "it is the greatest driving experience you will ever have! ...for about 7 and 1/2 seconds, and then it breaks down"

So, Fitbit is closing in on double digit units shipped?!?

I kid, I am actually happy to see they are still around. I thought they went under with Pebble. I am not really a smart watch kind of guy, but competition is usually for the best.

No no! Don't you see? This is totally different. It is based on Castlefight, not DotA! Brand new!

I don't know what flies in craphole countries like Maria-a-Legos (wherever that is), but here in America - 6 ain't that many Gs. I mean that ain't even 7 Gees. In this country we're gonna need at least 10, 12Gs easy. Maybe more! If Dodge can fit 10 Vs in a tiny little Viper, we aught to be able to fit way more Gs!!

I still hadn't finished S2, but I really liked S1 of TMitHC. Sad to see it go, though I didn't feel that S2 was ever as good as 1.

I will say that doesn't seem to leave them with much in the way of "must see" shows. Obviously, everyone is different, but for me the only thing left is The Grand Tour. I had high hopes for All or Nothing being like another 30 for 30, but eh, not so much, even with the New Zealand All Blacks season.

If you liked TMitHC, have you tried The Expanse? Full of political intrigue. In space, but very grounded.

Otherwise, sounds like you're really into (sports) documentaries?


Documentaries as a whole really. As long as they are properly researched.

They are still entertaining (to me anyway), but seem to have a much better wheat / chaff ratio than fiction. I'll have to check out The Expanse though, TY

While WinRAR would be impacted, that isn't a WinRAR flaw. It has to do with ACE archives. Any windows based ACE archive software is likely impacted (though I have no idea how many of those exist anymore, it was never super popular).

EDIT: Any *nix versions should be based on the open source version of ACE libraries though and should be fine.

Whats wrong with you people Punisher was awesome

Hey, I didn't say it was the worst show ever or anything :p

I don't know he never develops as a character at all. Only Iron Fist showed a less engaging character. He just kind of appears from time to time to graze on the scenery or make boom noises. I don't think Jon Bernthal is the most versatile to begin with, but I don't think this was on him. It was either the script, direction, or a combination of the two.

Both terrible shows so no surprise there.

Punisher was bad from start to finish (well nevermind finish, until I stopped watching). JJ was perfectly watchable. Not great or anything, but I never felt it was bad either.

Overall I think I enjoyed Daredevil the most, which oddly is the one I assumed they would mess up the most going in.
