Purchased a 2080TI.

And...? How is it?

I'm about to purchase another 2070. The last one crashed on certain games (DCS), but worked fine for others (E:D). Hoping a new hardware revision, or better drivers will be sufficient.

I don't have it yet. I'll get it in 1-2 weeks, so I'll let you know then.

That puts my current 1080TI likely up for sale. In July 2018, I paid $810 for a MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X 11G 11GB 352-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16. This card is one of the best-in-class 1080TIs. So far, performance remains excellent and without issues. I didn't OC it, so there's plenty of life left in it. I'll likely offer it for $250 (shipping included) which is cheaper than a standard-priced 1080. Highly recommend for anyone on a 960 or less, but not ready to go full 2080 series.

I'd be interested. I'm still running a 670, which still runs great, but not good enough to power my VR HMD. Not really interested in RTX. Send you a PM?

EDIT: Oh, your Blues DM is off. Can you DM me?

Let's wait until I get the new card first. I want to make sure it fits in my case and all that jazz before I commit the 1080TI to someone. But you're first on the list followed by Dacote. I'll update you in the next week.

Why is Billy Bishop airport on the list for worst airports? It's a local small plane airport. It's not an international airport. That whole list is pretty suspect given the conditions for judging them.

It depends, most personal injuries such as an individual against a corporation, you want a jury. Then if it's a question of law, you want a judge, afaik.

I'd take a jury trial over a judge trial any day of the week. There's no shortage of judges with their own biases/prejudices, etc. that are much worse than anything you'll find on a jury. Judges are known to be hard, soft, etc. Get the wrong one and you're up shit creek. Look how Johnny Cochrane got OJ off with the Chewbacca defense.

It is kind of like governments.... trial by jury is the worst system, except for all the others.

Trials with juries is the dumbest thing ever. Probably makes for better TV shows (don't remember any courtroom based TV shows outside of US) but having to convince a bunch of idiots about the validity of your cause not the best way to achieve justice.
