Specs for a tentative 2021 Gaming PC Build

Thought I'd share my thoughts about what parts I'd use to build a new gaming PC, if I was actually going to. My current gaming rig is running a Core a i7 7700k, which is 7th gen and nearly 4 years old. It's still plenty of horsepower for gaming. I'm feeling the itch to build something new - although...

The awesome Coolermaster 212 Tower CPU cooler

I posted about this heatsink in another thread in march last year when I installed it in my workstation because I was doing a lot of CPU based transcoding back then, and I felt the stock cooler wasn't up to it and wasn't allowing the CPU to run full throttle under load. I'm revisiting this because I...

Re: The Wkend: Blinding Lights live vs studio

I usually don't give a rat's behind about music awards, but even I have to wonder at the Wkend getting snubbed by the Grammys. This song was in the top 10 of Billboard's Top 100 for a record breaking 40 weeks.

Re: Rudy Guliani Holds News Conference Outside Drab Landscaping Firm, Next to Adult Bookstore

If you appoint electors counter to the state's electoral vote, you are overriding the vote, not excluding any individual ballots. And BTW, keep in mind, GOP winners in legislature and congress who just won, and may not be so keen to cast doubts on the election. If there was "massive" fraud...

Under Pressure: The Making of THE ABYSS

I had heard stories of the massive work this film involved, and the complex problems they had to deal with filming a large portion of it under water in custom diving suits, specially designed for the movie, in a custom built under water set. Really fascinating and detailed behind the scenes: https:/...

Re: Get Mudrunner FREE on Epic

Much simpler game. No building bridges (so far, I'm on 2nd map), no finding various suppliers of different goods to deliver to different players. You're just moving logs from the logging camps to the saw mills, unlocking watch towers to see hidden parts of the map, and finding vehicles which aren't ...

Re: Rudy Guliani Holds News Conference Outside Drab Landscaping Firm, Next to Adult Bookstore

You'd have 6.5 million disenfranchised voters (now that WOULD be wide spread vote rigging), with all the courts agreeing there's no evidence of wide spread fraud. I doubt the entire GOP members of the legislature are willing to stick their necks out for that, considering there likely would be a laws...

Re: Get Mudrunner FREE on Epic

Seems like less micro managing, which is fine with me. You don't have to buy accessories, they are just available at the garage, and you get decent trucks right from the start, and they don't require upgrades. The focus is more on the challenges.

Re: Get Mudrunner FREE on Epic

I'm just doing the challenges so far, to learn the controls, but so far I like somethings better than Snowrunner. It's got a darker, browner pallet, and they shroud distant objects in fog/mist which probably gives people with weaker GPUs better performance. Mud seems to stick to the tires in a more ...

Trump campaign loses appeal over Pennsylvania race

Aaaand the appeal in Pennsylvania failed. All three judges ruled the claims have no merit. All three judges Republicans. One a Trump appointee. I suppose Trump will start tweeting he's a traitor. Ah well, guess you can't buy a federal judge. Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy,” ...

Re: I love how my town looks like a dystopian, post-apocalyptic nightmare in Microsoft Flight Simulator

Nope. Space under the arch must be treated as a solid. I tried the Pitts which has half the wingspan, and it's clear from the still below I would have cleared, but it still crashed :(
