How low can they go?

A while ago, Blue had an article saying that prices would fall at the end of August. I've been eyeing a graphics card upgrade ever since and am just about to pull the trigger on Radeon RX 6800 or Nvidia RTX 3080. I'm wondering, should I wait a bit longer? And does anyone have strong opinions about either card?

Speaking of Heinlein, I'm working through CJ Cherryh's Foreigner. The novel starts out well, but gets bogged down with the main character Bren. I get what she's going for, but man is it a slog. About half way through. Does it get better, or should I bail and start reading Vernor Vinge instead?

It's been a couple of decades since I read the Foreigner books so I don't remember them well enough other than I enjoyed at least the first two or three. It's also been a while since I read Vernor Vinge, but A Fire Upon the Deep I recall being amazing. Have you read any Iain M. Banks yet?

Counterpoint on lawns:
- The best place to put a Slip n Slide is on a lawn.
- The best place to have a picnic is under a shady tree on a lawn.
- The best place to set down a blanket and watch the stars is on a lawn.
- The best place to let kids run around until they're worn out is on lawn.
- And most importantly, where else would you play Lawn Darts?

R.I.P. Nichelle Nichols. Nichols was great as Uhura. When I first watched Star Trek as a kid, I didn't have a clue at how groundbreaking the role was. I thought she was just a normal member of the crew. She was also very funny in Deadpool.

R.I.P. Bill Russell. Whenever I saw him interviewed he always came across as a classy individual. It's always funny to me, in discussions of the basketball G.O.A.T., that people compare Kobe and LeBron to Jordan about how many championship rings they've won. Last time I checked, Jordan's six is way less than eleven.

I have some complaints. Mostly, the first 10 hours just suck. You need resources to build things. You have such limited storage

Sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but are you aware that you can add additional storage slots in your suit, ship(s) and freighter?

Yes. New slots are very expensive and in the first ten hours you'll get one to three.
A quick way to get three extra slots in your General inventory tab right at the start is to move the jetpack, environment shield and life support mods into the Technology tab. It's the second thing I do (the first being find a cave) when starting a new Expedition or a 'no starter ship' challenge.

Personally, I don't actively seek out drop pods to increase inventory. It's much easier to make units and buy a slot from the Space Station and another from the Anomaly every time by warping to new systems.

This might end up being a "duh" kind of moment, but I am struggling to figure out what SNW is.

Oh, and love the Porkins reference.
Just like Star Trek fans refer to the original series as TOS, The Next Generation as TNG, etc.
SNW is shorthand for the new Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1, episodes 1 and 2. Very good. 9/10. As this is the beginning of a six-hour story, it isn't easy to gauge trajectory, but the level of continuity is decisive here. It did a good job weaving the impact of the events from The Revenge of the Sith on the characters. I wouldn't say I like that it takes place some ten years after The Revenge of the Sith, which doesn't gel well with Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton. Those two have aged way more than ten years. They look twenty+ years older. It requires a suspension of disbelief.

...

You've gotta figure Obi-Wan and Owen have been working outside, in the desert, under twin suns for the last ten years. It can't be that good for your skin. Plus McGregor's Obi-wan morphs into Alec Guiness' version in another ten years. I found their aging to be easy to accept.

Speaking of aging... (Just in case it's a spoiler) [The actress playing Leia looks and sounds very 'youthful', as well as, a bit short to be playing a ten year old. That aside, she's terrific. I could see a lot of Carrie Fisher's Leia. ]

I really liked these first two episodes and can't wait for the next four.

I can't wait to hear the arguments in favor of this law once it is challenged which I am guessing will not be long to happen...

Texas social media law

Five years ago I'dve bet my house that such a law couldn't possibly make it past the Supreme Court.

Note: The article did point out that the 5th circuit seemed to mistake social media platforms for ISP's. So maybe can correct themselves.

Moon Knight struck me as being in the same vein of Warehouse 13, Xena and Stargate SG-1 but only half the fun. Aside from the initial "I wonder what's going on?", I didn't care much about any of the characters. If there is a second season, I doubt I'll watch.

Side note: There's something really off about desert scenes in the MK and Boba Fett shows. Especially the ones that are suppose to be at night. Like they're shot using low budget green screen techniques from the 1940's.

Side side note: You know you've done a bad job at character development when you have to have a little girl ask for clarification during the end credits scene.

It doesn't make sense that they have continued to sink money into this game. I think they have a long term metaverse/nft play coming.

I think it comes down to preserving a reputation as a game developer. If they had walked away from NMS when they were being (rightfully) flamed for the release, It would have been over for Hello Games and Sean Murray.

Or maybe they enjoy the game themselves and love working on it.

Watched Moon Knight this morning . I was not at all impressed and it has elements that are right up my alley, namely ancient Egyptian religion.
I heard the first episode is the best, and it goes downhill from there.
Yikes! I hope that's not the case. My initial hope is that it will build like WandaVision.

You forgot the 3M Nuclear Grade Tape to close off your bathroom tomorrow. Amazon also suggest a hazmat suit.
Lol. The EPA probably needs to schedule an inspection today.

Book of Boba Fett was a huge letdown (besides the Mando Episodes). Wonder if the pandemic affected it.
I thought it was fun and worth watching. At least it wasn't a total clusterf*** like the sequel trilogy.

It was kind of weird that for a couple of episodes, Boba himself barely had a cameo. Over the whole season most of the CGI was great. The story was OK. But sadly, except for a few guest stars, the least wooden acting came from a guy covered head to toe in a metal suit.

I recently smashed up my left wrist so I'm looking for PC games that can be played with just a mouse. I like civ 6, but I'm getting a little bored with it. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
