  1. Interesting that the only feedback has been on the brand not the size. I'm worried that the 17" will be too bulky to be useful as a laptop (ie easy portability/mobility) but that the 15" screensize will be too small when gaming. Does size matter, or is it all about how you use what you've got?

    Heh. I knew there was no way to get an accurate post count for me
  3. So I'm getting myself a gaming lappy. I want something easily portable that I can take with me to do stuff on the go, but decent on the gaming front to be able to sit on the couch or wherever I am and play stuff. I've narrowed it down to a couple of choices that I like. https://au.msi.com/Laptop/GS65-Stealth-8SX https://au.msi.com/Laptop/GS75-Stealth-9SX or https://www.asus.com/au/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-Zephyrus-S-GX502/ https://www.asus.com/au/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-Strix-SCAR-III/ So now I"m at the pointy end. I'm kinda leaning to MSI 15" right now, but I'm really not sure because the 17" are nice. Reviews I've seen say that all the above are great laptops. The ROG has a really nice look and seem sturdier. The ROG 17" is heavy tho. Any thoughts from the hive mind?

    Anyone seen Cybes lately ?

    Sometimes it's not about anyone "doing" anything, so much as just knowing that people are there if you want. We can't stop the world being a dick, but we can laugh/cry/rage/hold up a middle finger at it with you. It's not much, and a lot less than we'd like to do, but sometimes it might be enough.

    Hope everything is ok Cybes. We understand, but hope you know that we care and you are someone that is worth caring about. Do what you need to do, but remember we are always here to lead an ear, or a hand, or a shoulder. Or just to fill the quiet places or overrule the inner noise that sometimes makes it all seem worse.

    What's on your mind?

    I beat you both by a bit. And I'm still here, still actively kicking Nich's arse and will still be here when the lights go off. I've also been part of / am part of a number of forums outside of here. DIfference is that I don't mention it because it has no bearing on here. We don't have a say in what our playground is built on, and should perhaps just consider ourselves incredibly blessed to still have a playground at all that allows us to roam free like the wildebeast.
  7. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Let me see what I can do... It won't be for a while tho. But... Hmmmm....

    Getting a recognised piece of paper for Microsoft Office

    There is about a million RTOs that offer that stuff, but to my mind your better option is potentially TAFE/Uni. Specifically online/Part-time/Night courses. RTOs don't have the best name and as far as employers go, they still like higher ed quals. There are adult/bridging courses you can do in IT land which will get you basic quals as well as higher level ones. https://www.northmetrotafe.wa.edu.au/short-courses https://www.training.com.au/pt/central-tafe-perth-courses/ https://www.southmetrotafe.wa.edu.au/short-courses https://www.open.edu.au/ http://www.openuniversity.edu/courses There are also the freebie type courses (some of which you can pay to get a certificate in) https://www.edx.org/school/harvardx https://www.adelaide.edu.au/learning/adelaidex/free-online-courses If you don't like that route and really wanna go the RTO - here is the MS link for trainers they like. https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/education/training-and-events/trainers Filter for Australia/WA/Perth and you should find a few. It's a really crappy site tho. Good Luck!

    Some great reads

    Sorry Ev, I missed this. If you enjoyed Maze runner, I'd recommend The Divergent series by Veronica Roth. Ignore the Movie series. It's ok until you get to the end and realise that they changed the ending and screwed it up. Shame as the ending in the books is great. But it's recommended, especially if you've also read and enjoyed the Hunger Games book series. They did a good job with the movies, but it was not up to the standard of the books (as usual). I'm currently re-reading the Incarnations of Immortality series by Piers Anthony. Excellent series.

    oh. Just that old nutbag collection. They have been around for years wearing their tinfoil hats and waving their fists at the gubberment.

    Did I miss a memo? Go on - you know you want to get back on that soapbox of yours...

    Then to now

    Oh dear god. I got an Oppo and it is the worst. The OS is so very very bad. No app drawer, getting widgets and managing screens is awful. Bluetooth connectivity is appalling. It refuses to connect with any smart wearable at all. I'm looking at going back to an ancient Samsung I chuckled into a drawer with great relief in preference to this Oppo. I miss my trusty Huawei. It went for a swim in the loo and died a very sad death. Never again will I let a sales person talk me into a phone without triple checking it out. Oppo is by far the suckiest phone I've ever used.
  13. Nich is the only Mod here with crusty buns. It goes with his general crusty demeanor.
  14. Mods here are interchangeable with wieners. We even use the same vernacular when discussing mods and all things sausage related.

    3D Printer and drawing software - advice would be nice

    I'm mainly going to be making minis for board games (i'm going to hit all the Gloomhaven summons first up), so I'm thinking Blender will be the preferred option. My Anycubic Photon arrived, so I'm gonna be setting up over the next week or two and having a play. I'll let you know how I go. From what I can see of the slicer, it's very VERY light on features, but I'm hoping it will do the job. From what I can see so far, it seems to be able to auto add supports and skirts, but I'm not entirely confident how well it will work yet. Especially since I will be importing Blender files to be sliced. I know there are a couple of alternatives if the anycubic one is awful, however I would prefer to use the manufacturer one if possible as I'd assume it would get the best results.
