Re: Question of the Day

Have you ever gotten gas without turning off your car?
Heck no! I don't want to explode. I saw on FB an old coworker said he never turns it off, especially not in the winter.

Re: The Toys That Made Us | Netflix

Watching the GI Joe one now. They had to cut cost and remove 10% of every character. Instead they decided to just cut almost all of the details/color out of one character... Snake Eyes. The black ninja dude. I don't remember GI Joe making Kenner sized toys either. I only know of them as foot tall to...

I "think" you can, but I didn't test that. I assume it could know where you left off in a series too.

Re: Computers and PC parts

Damn! You got a deal at $54. I would buy one if I saw it at that price. I'm sure the speed increase wouldn't even be noticed, especially compared to going from HDD to SSD.

Good call on single 8gb. Will be much cheaper to just get another single 8gb this year.

Computers and PC parts

SSD prices are higher now than they were a year ago? I thought that was the only thing going down now.

DDR4 is insane! Would be like $200 to get 16gb. Do you have 2x4gb or 1x8gb? How many slots do you have?

If you watched a lot of Youtube it is probably worth it, its more of a gimmick for me. I doubt we use it for anything other than music videos

Space Pirate Trainer (VR)

My dad loves this game and it is his go-to to demo to people. My dad brings his 60 year old coworkers over for lunch so they can play during the noon hour. I'm beating him in 2 of the 3 modes, but he is completely dominating me in Arcade. I tried taking him tonight but couldn't. I'll give him he ben...

Google Home (previously: Google's October 4th Event)

We are a Roku family, but I hooked up a free Chromecast I had in a drawer to the downstairs 2nd input. It's pretty sweet to ask Google Home to play something on Youtube and it starts within seconds on the TV. I mostly wanted to do this so we could play music videos for Evie and use the surround sound.

I finally beat this. I really enjoyed the visuals, mechanics, and story. I constantly got lost in the gameplay and forgot where I was in the room. The game was repetitive at times though and very frustrating at the parts I kept dying at. I recommend everyone play it, but I would totally get it if pe...

Re: Computers and PC parts

That's a really good point. You can get the Xbox One X, capable of 4k 60fps, for less than a GTX 1080, maybe even 1070. It use to be always cheaper to build your own, but I've seen some pretty tempting prebuilt options show up on Slickdeals. Problem with those is they are usually budget motherboard ...

Prices are insane, but great for those selling used cards. Maybe things will settle down with crypto going down? I also want DDR4 to go down!

I think I'll see this Friday after work and I expect it to be average. No way it's taking out Paddington 2 as my favorite 2018 movie

Evie I watched the first 2 episodes over the past couple of weeks. She's not into it nearly as much as Planet Earth, especially episode 2 that was focused on the deep sea floor. She did like the "ewwww. Icky bugs" this, also known as crabs

I went to buy a 500gb SSD yesterday at Best Buy, but it was out of stock. It's a sign! I don't need it. I did wipe my 240gb SSD last night and started redoing windows. I ran into tons of issues with the displays, both onboard and GPU. I think I have it figured out tho. If my Rift extension cable is ...

Truth is somewhere in the middle. Aziz didn't act like a gentleman and he made the girl feel uncomfortable.
