Beamer.. I'm sure if you're able to put in those kind of bids, you'll eventually get something. Like getting a "good job", owning a home is one of those things we're told to do in overt & subtle ways our whole lives, and then when the time comes and it's not possible, you feel angry, cheated, impatient.
I bought my house in 2010 and right after that, the area started getting hot (very urban/walkable area.) But now, it's just silly. It's a small house and we're ready to get some more space and not have so many neighbors around. Even though we could probably sell for good money, everything else has gone way up especially bigger places with yards. So while it's good that I won't have to get this place in "HGTV" condition to sell, I also think I'll wait until the pandemic is mostly over (if that ever even happens at this point) and hopefully the market calms down. I tell this story because I think part of why prices are so high is that even though the market seems crazy, I would think not a lot of people are selling - who wants to be moving now unless you really have to? But have no numbers etc. to back that up. Good luck to all out there.

I have more trouble with these fan and cooler assemblies than the compound. My tips are to make sure those tabs are lined up before you go to seat it, because if not you have to lift it to get them right and possibly disturb the compound. I always do a small dot in the middle and don't spread it before. The reason is that every time I've taken a heatsink off, the compound is spread out and many times near to the edge of the chip. The past few times it's been better since I started using less. I also put it very slightly higher than the center (away from the side pointing down) to account for gravity over time, even though I redo it every 1-2 years, it seems to seep downward. Never worried about the break in period, as you'll get changes in temp naturally.


Just want to make sure this sounds about right to everyone. It's been several years since I've done this. And I know AS 5 has a 200 hour break in period where you need to make sure to power the PC off at points to let is rest. Thanks.

I assume people know about this but just in case if not, you can possibly use "autohotkey" to force applications to rebind keys. I had to do this for The Forest, because I use right mouse to move forward and there was no way to rebind movement to the mouse buttons. I picked a keyboard character I'm unlikely to use for anything else, bound that to 'move forward' in the game menu, and then used the autohotkey script to bind 'rbutton' to that character. This should work with any .exe file. You just have to have the script running before you launch the game. So in my script below, ' ] ' is what I made the game think was move forward, and ' v ' is what the game was forcing to the right mouse (which I think was opening the backpack)

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

#IfWinActive ahk_exe TheForest.exe
rbutton::]

Cutter.. Bills are playing the 49ers tonight and the Steelers play Washington. Steelers-Bills next week
Steelers offense is doing something new for them which are these quick passes. Ben is getting rid of the ball in record time and then the receivers add on the yards. The defense is working but I wonder if one of our opponents will crack the code to these quick outs in the playoffs.

Thanks for that link.. over $100 but I might have to just get it or maybe look for used, it's funny because some of the first games I played on PC were flying games... EF2000, Descent Freespace 2 but I haven't played them in years now.

I really need a joystick! Getting by with a controller for now. Where's my old Microsoft Sidewinder when I really need it?? Ordered some Thrustmaster "Airbus" on Amazon a while back, actually preordered and then a few weeks ago got a notice that they won't be able to supply. My preorder price was $75 and speculators are listing now for prices I won't even dignify by transcribing here. I say get it especially if you have a joystick!!

Xero, I'm in a similar situation as you and long story short think I'm gonna get one of these new cards before doing a new build.
I figure I can't go too far wrong because if it doesn't change my performance significantly, I'll know I was for sure CPU bottlenecked and then go for one of the Rocket Lake CPUs when they launch in the next couple months. Of course the better and cheaper scenario is that it performs well in your system, and you can keep going for a year or so and buy yourself some time to plan your next build. Many other factors in play of course but that's my basic advice.

This might be what gets me to try VR. I'm really liking it, of course it's really a simulator-simulator but there's those moments when you actually think you're flying for a minute. An incredible technical achievement too with the realtime weather, wind and traffic.

Surprised there's not more love for the logo in the comments.. I also noticed it right away, and actually thought maybe it hadn't changed all this time and I had just not looked in a while. Anyway, awesome.

I served Sammartino at the pharmacy I used to work at in high school. He was really huge! I didn't know who he was or anything, my boss told me afterwards. This would be around 1999-2000

I had a severe recurrence of Terraria a few months ago. I made a large map but used my old character. Once I defeated the wall of flesh I played hardmode for a couple minutes and haven't played it since, but I fear my Terraria addiction will return with interest someday.

I'm not too excited about this. . . Defense Grid 2, now that's another story. I know I played SW at the time but can't remember much about it. I know it was hotly anticipated after Duke 3D and nowhere near as good. I was surprised 3D Realms went with Shadow Warrior after Duke. They could have made a Duke sequel with the build engine that would have done well commercially no matter what, and probably would have been way better than SW. Of course all speculation... my gaming memories of that time are dominated by Quake 2.
