#1203411 Star Citizen / Squadrdon 42 - a real PC game

Link no work for me :(

Yeah, sorry about that. Got a cold/flu thing, and between posting from bed, and doing that on my 'phone, I munged it up. Try this one:

This updates the groups status (bit of a dust up between the sisters because of Ann's husband) ...

Well, that ain't good. :p I really can't understand how families do that silent treatment thing, but especially not for the actions of someone else; you're not responsible for what anyone else does, be they ancestor, spouse, offspring*, sibling or stranger. (*Liable, perhaps. Let's not get legal over this.))

Many of you won’t remember me...

As do I. Considering we've already exchanged posts, I expect you know that already - unless the grandma genes are kicking in! ;)

Sorry to hear about your gramps; glad to hear about the grandkids.

Here ya go Cybes ... very interesting...

Nice one, JK - thanks! I hadn't seen that before.

Y'know, I loved from the radio well before I ever saw them. It seems downright bizarre to me that the world was able to take Mamma Cass to its heart, despite her being the size of a house, but they gave Ann such a dreadful time about it. Maybe it's because I grew up in a house full of opera (where anyone not enormous is the odd one out), but music to me has always been about ears and not eyes.

Then again... Food to me is about taste/smell; take your fancy plating elsewhere - by the time you've finished fucking around with it, the dish is cold; and you've put the shit that's hard to cut on top of the stuff that squishes. I'm just a ruthless utilitarian and pragmatist: things should do their damned job, and do it as well as possible, and if it looks like shit then so be it.

Didn't even see the line, let alone read it. You'd think I'd know better. :p

I've long had a soft spot for "art miniatures" (for anyone who doesn't know what those are: tiny, useless-because-of-size but functional, reproductions of things, done for artistic purposes - like tiny steam engines, canon, or knives), so these kinda sucked me right in:
Note: the guy's rather fond of his overdramatic moments, so you might want to just skip ahead a minute or two now and then.

yeah, but think of all the unpopulated M class planets.

... Somewhere, I lost my grasp on this conversation. None of you cowboys dropped shrooms in my salad, did you? ;p

Godless Cranium is a brainy fella, but this is very far from the way he speaks and a perfect illustration of how Jordan Peterson makes banal bullshit sound profound.

Yours running around 1936mhz, which is great, would probably be close to the limits of the core (most don't go much over 2025mhz anyway unless under water).

I hadn't realised it was running on the edge out of the box. Good to know.

Unless you can keep the temps lower than 80c, which would probably need more aggressive fan curve to maintain, might not be worth it for the noise factor and the slight boost... I run that speed instead of trying to push it since, like you its is pretty good OC already.

Done deal - I'm more than happy with the performance as it is, and the fact that it doesn't make this small room blazingly hot AND is quieter than my laptop even at idle, I don't feel much inclined to mess with it. Maybe after a year and stuff starts to take a toll on it - and the warranty's expired. ;)

Just tried out Skyrim SE and Empyrion maxed out... Both are smooth as glass. Skyrim doesn't want to behave itself at 3440 (loses inputs), but what can you expect from a game that old? Osiris: New Dawn up next.

#1202256 A quick question about views

Posted by Cybes on 23 May 2018 - 03:09 AM

...it's now over half the lifetime of Atomic ago.  And given the number of active accounts now, not much to worry about anymore.


Random thought: Atomic:not much left now... We're all decay products of an isotope with a halflife ~2 years.  Hot, hot, hot!
