Concorde 101 G-AXDN Nose lowering - behind the scenes

Amazing that even the landing lights retract for aerodynamics.

Marvel's Kevin Feige Reportedly 'Angry and Embarrassed' at Disney Over Scarlett Johansson Lawsuit

Yeah, she's a rich actress, but there are other less famous and less well paid actors in that production, and other films, made around the same time, who don't have her clout, and probably got screwed as well. Any new contracts I'm sure include streaming now. Legally she has a case. Her contract was...

Darn good looking game.

Interesting review. Of course this only reminds me that I need to play the Stalker series.

Re: Astroneer: The Mission, Compass, and Power Update Patch

Brand new start.

One of the downsides of my strategy is I haven't yet made it to a planet with Lithium, which is usually an early target. So I can't build medium batteries yet and everything I'm running is powered by giant pallets of dozens of small batteries. It works though. :P

Re: Astroneer: The Mission, Compass, and Power Update Patch

I'm actually having a lot of fun on this play through. Since I'm familiar with the game, and no as scared of the hard planets anymore, I decided to dive right in with a hard planet after going to the first planet's moon, instead of working my way up through the easier planets first. So I went to Gla...

Re: Green screening myself into Station 19's Rocket Water Heater crap show.

Station 19. It's in it's 4th season I think. Never heard of it until this fireman started mocking it on his YouTube channel. Not surprisingly, Rotten Tomatoes rates it 43%. I've watched several of his green screen commentaries of the show. It's not just this episode. The entire show is like that. Th...

CHERNOBYLITE REVIEW Chernobylite is a rare game that makes you feel the weight of your decisions.

Putting this on my radar. Refreshing to see a single player only FPS/survival game released, with all the multiplayer/battle royale cash grabs going on right now.

Re: New gaming rig build

Did you see Linus cram one into a small form factor case? He originally tried using the Noctua passive CPU cooler, but it was too big. Cued up at the point where he pulls out the fanless and slaps the NH-D15 in there. BTW: Nice to see there's now a black version of it, not that I care, but some peop...

Re: New gaming rig build

I was tired of the front fans howling with the very aggressive manual fan curve I setup, so I put all fans on normal and only set the CPU and rear fans to turbo curve (can hardly hear those). CPU temps were okay, but not as good as I liked. Nothing I played was pushing to thermal limit, but in many ...
