I'm getting kind of fidgety, wondering if I can hold out till the holidays and possibly get 25% discount.
That's a lot of "ifs and buts" !
The AMD promotion on certain CPU's and graphics card's come with Starfield for free until the end of this month (Sep 2023).

I'm really looking forward to playing Starfield. Does anyone who's getting the game via the AMD promotion have their key yet?

Dune 2021 is a perfect example. Did they need to spend what I'm sure were extremely high salaries for Josh Brolin, Jason Mamoa, Oscar Isaac, Christopher Walken, et al? I'll answer that. NO. Personally I liked the Dune remake much better than the Lynch one but that's irrelevant to the discussion. How much less would the 165 million dollar budget have been if you would have cast talented up and comers in just some of those roles? Needless excess everywhere. Old Hollywood needs to adapt or die.
While you are probably right about the casting, I think using big name actors for secondary roles is more about marketing. And not just to the public. I imagine studios or financial backers are more likely to greenlight a movie and/or spend extra cash for better CGI, reshoots, etc. if there are a lot of big names attached.

Just happy Rebels are becoming Live Action in Asohka! Hopefully with Thrall returning we see Erza return as well.

He's in the trailer. When Sabine is watching a holo, that's Ezra. (At 1:20) I'm putting money on the old Dark Jedi dude being Joruus C'Baoth from Heir to the Empire, especially since they purposely say that title in regard to Thrawn. (Who was pulled from that book series as well.)
From the closed captions the 'old Dark Jedi dude' seems to be named Baylan. I've never heard of him but his orange lightsaber looks very cool.

There's nothing magical about the "refurb" process...

The only thing I caution against is refurb drives be they spinning rust or DRAM. Data should only be trusted to NIB disks. Redundancy is implied.
I've never heard of NIB disks before. I googled it but I'm not sure I understand. Is it like an ISO file? A physical piece of gear? One description says "A NIB file is a touch-enabled user interface object for an iOS app created for an iOS app created by the Interface Builder component of Xcode integrated development environment."

Not a big fan (pun intended) of the series as they just run way too hot. I know they're "designed" that way, but not acceptable to me this day and age

I agree with you. I am now doing mini PCs because I am seeing a massive amount of performance in my applications for 15-35W of TDP and they absolutely sip power compared to their desktop equivalents. Under an artificial full load, I have a Minisforum B550 that's pulling 90W from the wall. That's crazy efficient when you consider that's disk, RAM, CPU, I/O, and GPU combined.

Out of curiosity, which model of CPU and GPU are you using?

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.

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.
