Out of the Blue

The DOWNTON ABBEY Official Trailer is online. I dunno. MrsBlue and I enjoyed the series, but in contrast to the upcoming Deadwood movie, it didn't suffer from lack of closure. The trailer celebrates all the returning characters, but it just seems like another episode of the show. We'll still watch it, but I don't know that we'll rush to the theater to do so. Waiting for it to show up on a streaming service should suffice.

R.I.P.: Formula One Titan Niki Lauda Dead at 70. Thanks JDreyer. If you haven't seen it, Rush is an excellent 2013 movie about his rivalry with James Hunt in the 1970s.

The test guide is public but the New sheet asks for permission.

noted. Have fun benchmarking.


Almost immediately noticed an RTX feature called "Global Illumination" in Rage 2 (I believe this is part of the RTX's raytracing system), and wow is it nice! Rage 2 with settings maxed out and GI enabled runs at a solid 4K60 (sometimes it bumps past 60). Recorded a 4K60 video showing GI in action. This is pretty much how most games run on my machine. Here's another 4K60 recorded example of GI in play, but this time in the entire environment. You'll notice the overall hue is an orange tint. This is from the sunrise. That was not present on my 1080TI without GI.
