Out of the Blue

Well my schedule is a little thrown off today, basically because it isn't off schedule. To explain, MrsBlue has been talking all week about changing the clocks this weekend. So I've had this in mind all week, leading up to the realization that in these parts Daylight Saving Time ends next week, rather than this one. Oh well, no harm, no foul. I'll just consider this week a dry run.

Obituary: Low Roar front man and Death Stranding contributor Ryan Karazija passes away at 40.
Obituary: RIP: Kathleen Booth, the inventor of assembly language.

Random Sunday evening thought:

Why is "excavate" a verb but "cavate" is an adjective?
because it is the description of a characteristic of a something.

You can excavate but cavate happens after an excavation of an object. So it would be a characteristic of the object that has undergone hollowing. You wouldnt say "excavationed rock" you would say "cavate rock".

The cavate tooth showed no signs of previous infection.

if im wrong blame it on my "english as a second language" (ignoring the fact ive spoken and worked using english for 40 years)
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Wait until they try and figure out Jackson Pollock...
Yeah... I'm sorry, but that's why it is not art. If I no one can tell if the piece is upside down... same for Pollock. Always thought his "art" was bollocks.

If they had replaced Tom Cruise with a cat, I might go see Top Gun, I cannot for the life of me understand how anyone would wanna see a movie with that cultist creep in the lead. Please just watch Scientology and the Aftermath with Leah Remeni instead. You will learn everything you need to know about mr.Cruise, plus, unlike Top Gun, it has a real badass in its leading role.

Cruise is a living legend with an admirable and hard earned place in world films' story.

Sad, his involvement with the crazy Scientology cult.

I've played most Spiders games and loved them.

After their Greedall RPG, tried Steelraising.
It's more of a Bloodborne or easier steampunk Dark Souls.
The heroine is exquisite, the locations well done, the action interesting all the time (as usual dissected the game minutely with Cheat Engine to test all upgrades and power ups).

But, at one certain point, saved my progress, deleted the game, and will reinstall it only if they do a much better optimization.
Don't know what they were thinking at Spiders as the excesive use of VRAM brings down your GPU even with DLSS *plus* medium high settings.

Even with low settings you hear the fans working alarminly loud.
No other game had this effect so far.
Thanks, but I choose to preserve my GPU.

Do you ever just play a game as intended? 😂 You and your cheat engines and modding! Gotta love it though, you made my new Spellforce experience way better with the camera tinkering.

Hopefully by next week, Blue will also realize that DST is ending, rather than beginning. You'll get to enjoy an extra hour of sleep rather than losing one.
