‘I’d rather eat an actual burger’: why plant-based meat’s sizzle fizzled in the US - Meat.
Funny, I was just chatting with a couple of former coworkers. They prefer the Beyond or Impossible over real meat, and they used to be huge meat eaters.

Have you backed up everything
Have you ran the manufacturers hardware tests if available
Have you tried reformatting and reinstalling the os (nevermind, you’re factory reset is the same thing.)
Have you reseated all the components?
WiFi card, battery, memory
Have you unplugged everything from its USB ports etc

While BoP busily checks for belly button lint. It really is the cashmere of lints.
BoP has been busy putting out other people's fires at work (called in on an emergency basis).
I just have three words to say:
Fuck Windows Server.

Played the game for a 100 minutes. I'll sleep on it whether I'll refund it or not.
The game starts out fantastic! You're a cat, playing with your small group (pride? 😜) of other cats. The animations look amazing it's immediately obvious these devs are truly cat lovers. That last point is important for me later.
Anyway, about half an hour in the game turns from a lineair but good cinematic experience into a very gamey one. Find this guy. Collect this and that for that guy, so that he'll give you this and that to give to another guy et cetera. A hundred minutes in, I realize what I feared from the beginning: you could've just as well been a little troll, blob, robot -- anything small and nimble! -- and nothing would be different. I'm afraid the game designers at some point simply forgot that you're a fucking CAT!
But... I don't think I'll refund. Despite the game feeling arcady... they really nailed the cat looks and animations and also the way you control the cat by the way. This alone deserves my money. I hope other devs/publishers will look at this and see that a game where you're a regular animal can be good if done right.

Sigil was quite good, so I can overlook Daikatana
If his ineptitude hadn't bankrupted Ion Storm and nearly Eidos, Warren Spector would have made more games there (I liked Thief Deadly Shadows and Deux Ex Invisible War even if the last didn't have the quality of the first but Warren had seen the writing on the wall and was making his exit among the studio chaos and drama).
Tom Hall's Anachronox was really good and he had ample material ready for a sequel too but the financial debacle Romero caused ended that.

Our dream is to be able to put in one of those heat pump installations, but we're not clear if we're actually allowed here. The win for me is the downstairs where I work is naturally cool. I guess that's my payoff for working almost 20 years in a sweltering attic.
Blue, do you have AC?

Oh I got bunnies out the wazoo here. Last year one was stupid enough to nest in my back yard, oblivious to the two hounds I let out there every day (or maybe she thought my dogs would protect them).
Here's one of the little guys after they finally came out of their nest.
