Overall this suggests that the disruptiveness of smartphones is rooted within learned user behaviours, not devices.

For CPU cooling I was thinking of going with the Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4 - love BQs motherboard check on their website - but it's huge and it seems like overkill. I think the Dark Rock Slim would be better for me - the Pro doing 250W TDP vs. the Slim 180W TDP, as I'm not overclocking or anything, and it saves me $50 to boot. Thoughts?
....So with a new AMD system...

It's funny, I think of Rockstar's 7-year deve cycles when I think of Take Two, and Codemasters I think of them pushing the same shit out the door every year FIFA-style. Maybe this aquisition qould do them some good. They need a good kick up the arse IMO.

RIP fairly monetized racing games.
Unfortunately, the DualSense’s magic faded for me after my first dozen hours of play. My hands hurt after using it for long periods, especially with games that involved a lot of constant use of the triggers and bumpers. For context, my hands are medium-sized for a woman’s, and I’ve never felt any similar pain from using an Xbox One controller, the Switch Pro Controller, or the DualShock 4. The bottom half of my right hand, as well as just below my wrist, ached after playing Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition — a game that requires constant use of R1 to focus on an enemy — and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, where swinging is mapped to the right trigger. The controller just feels a bit too big. Its grips are too thick and long, and don’t have enough space in the rear divot where I normally rest my middle finger. (My colleague Russ Frushtick wrote a counter-take, where he says this controller is a “literal game-changer”, so I should emphasize that this is my experience; it turns out that people have different-sized hands.)

The economic crash greatly increased homelessness due to economic reasons. I'm not sure how far back to the norm we've come, or if there are still a lot of economic homeless people out there.

Thanks for all that Nullity.
Question - for anyone actually: Should top fans in the case draw air in or out? I saw a vid a few weeks back where a guy tested that and I seem to recall that it worked better drawing air in because that would cross the CPU fan and blow it out the back, rather than drawing excess hot air from the area and blowing it out of the case. Just wondering if anyone knows for sure.
EDIT: I'm fairly certain that if you made the top fans intake, it would create a cross-flow and cycle the air around in the case, causing the hot air to become trapped.
EDIT 2: Also, ideally, you want slightly more air coming in than going out (CFM - cubic feet per minute) to create positive pressure in the case, which helps to prevent dust build-up.

Also, Cutter will be happy to know that psilocybin was legalized in Oregon on Tuesday.
that's a bit extreme on oregon's party. i'm pretty progressive socially, but all drugs? a lot of it is illegal for good reason - it fucks up people's lives. also they're still 100% illegal federally, and unlike weed i doubt the feds will turn a blind eye to abuse of psychodelics and cocaine n shit.
If you are equating shrooms with cocaine, you are just letting the rest of us know that you have no idea what you are talking about.
