  • Re: EA, what do you have against Star Wars fans?

    Cautiously optimistic. I really hope they go with the Overwatch model of cosmetics instead of gameplay/advantages.

    I'm happy enough with this change to put it on my Christmas list this year, where Forza 7 still remains off.

  • Re: The Keto diet

    So I've been reasonably quiet about it, but the wife and I went all in on keto again this Spring. I take a day (or week in the case of Expo and my vacation) off now and then to get my fix of the stuff I miss (beer, mostly), but jump right back into the routine without fail.

    Since the end of March I'm down 40lb and still rolling downward. I think I've found a groove that makes it sustainable for me, and I don't think I'll be looking back.

  • Re: Breaking the x86 instruction set: secret instructions on our hardware

    He was also able to find a single, completely undocumented instruction that, when executed on a particular processor (he hasn't named it yet because they haven't had a chance to respond) will hard-lock it. Not CPU busy, spinlock, etc, but full on processor stop.

    This wouldn't be so terrifying if that instruction wasn't accessible through ring3, aka unprivileged userland.

    I don't have a Funko problem, I have a 3D Printer problem. My third one arrived last night.
