    Vowel deeds are afoot in modern Strayan

    When they entered the Japanese market (in their pre-video-games era), they obviously pronounced it the way it looked to them: セガ (seh gah), and since the Japanese created Sonic and a lot of their first party content, Americans would continue to say seh-gah, or say-gah. Australia had a longer weaning period on to Sega, the Master System was waaayyyy more popular here than in the US, so we "grew up" without the pronunciation key given by the famous Mega Drive splash screen. Hence See-gah. Funny story though... from actual former Sega OziSoft employees: SEGA is short for Service Games, so they joked that maybe we should all be saying "Ser-gah"
  2. Tourism Australia exists, we do in other countries exactly what other countries do here. Golden rule satisfied. </thread>

    NSW / QLD fires

    Heard on the Facetards that RFS firefighters in QLD or NSW were having their fuel cards bounce, and having to buy diesel out of their own pockets, can anybody confirm or deny? I'm imagining that if anything, it's just a "system down" type situation, rather than anything malicious or clerical.

    What's on your mind?

    (Economic) deflation is a good thing.

    I don't know quite what you're asking there, why "or"? I'm talking about them together, but they are separate things. Stagnation is the neutral state between growth and recession, deflation is the opposite of inflation. They are related, in that the former typically results in the latter, but they are not the same.

    (Economic) deflation is a good thing.

    *facepalm* In economic stagnation and deflation, there isn't "another growing business", but there is a growing population of unemployed fighting for a shrinking number of jobs. When there is rising unemployment, people don't have money to gamble on entrepreneurial ventures. Banks are averse to lending money to new businesses, when the existing businesses are already experiencing losses. Nothing in this sentence makes any sense, and at this point, you're just spilling word soup all over the place. You won't be taken more seriously, just because you litter your posts with keywords, much less as you proceed to demonstrate nothing more than a passing understanding of the meanings of the words you're using.

    (Economic) deflation is a good thing.

    When a person is laid off, or made redundant, that job no longer exists. There is now one less job in the pool of jobs available to the same amount of people. Dead simple. Jobs are only created as businesses grow. Economic inflation is an indicator of growing productivity. Inflation/deflation is not the precursor to job growth or loss, it's a symptom of it. You're putting the cart before the horse, and drawing fallacious conclusions. As usual.

    Fan arrangement

    Cheers @Dasa No plans to use the vertical GPU mount, I don't have the riser anyway!

    Fan arrangement

    Thanks dude! Yeah the fans are connected to the NZXT fan controller, and are just on their default settings, I'll check that out. The GPU isn't blower-style, it's the Gigabyte model with 3 regular-ass fans. I'm going to get some supplies on Saturday, I'll add the extra fan, tinker with the settings, and let you know how it goes. Cheers for the help!

    Fan arrangement

    Hey all! A few months ago I built my new gaming+streaming rig: i7 9700KF, RTX2080, NVME SSD, all the cool stuff. Well it's meant to be cool stuff, right now it's very toasty stuff. I have a NZXT H510i case, a Corsair H80i v2 AIO cooler, and 2x 120mm fans, all arranged like this (not to scale obviously, arrows indicate airflow direction): At idle and during most tasks, the system is on the warm side but OK. Fire up something demanding like CODMW with RTX enabled and the GPU gets extremely hot, close to 90 degrees. I know the air inside the case is hot too, as when I take the side off there's a gust of hot air like opening an oven. Now, I know I should add some more fans, but I'd like some input on where, and how they should be oriented. Any help? Dasa? XD

    how crap is this government ?

    Of course, you're spot on. But at the risk of sounding like I'm "making excuses", there is such a thing as the poverty cycle, and the psychological barriers are significant. It's almost like a cult, some people will wake up one day and realise it's all bullshit, some will be trapped for life because their cognitive biases are too strong.
