  • I played ICEY for 2.4 hours last night on my Steam Link. It was a really good living room experience. Played really nice with the Steam Controller too. Plus, the fighting is pretty challenging IMO. I regret nothing.
  • I posted this in Discord already, and I don't know how long it's going to last because it sure seems like a glitch, but right now you can get a Steam Link for $1 when purchased in a bundle with ICEY. I ordered it and confirmed it went through. Total…
  • My favorite Pop figure is my Deadpool bobblehead Pop. Followed closely by my Fallout 4 - Sole Survivor and Dogmeat Pops that adorn my desk at work. If you want to talk about someone with an legit Pop problem though.... I had a coworker at …
  • @Linc - When I navigate to the site over HTTP, it shows me as not logged in and fails to login. When I go to it over HTTPS, I am already logged in. Since you have a valid cert, you should probably just put an HTTP->HTTPS redirect in.
  • @BobbyDigi said: So I could not care less if someone sees my YouTube history or gaming schedules but if I understand correctly someone could use my network to do bad thing which I would then probably be liable for. My question is, is not b…
  • @Gargoyle said: I've read elsewhere that this only affected clients, not routers. Is that true? My desktops are all patched, we all know how ridiculous the Android system is for patches so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, but I'm wondering if I need to be worried abo…
  • @Cliff_Forster said: Your users have too much control. I hate to agree with Cliff, but he's right. If the people setting policy says they need to be using the university network drive, that's what they should be doing and that's what shou…
  • Yeah... GRUB has nothing to do with partitioning, it's the bootloader. The piece of code that your BIOS loads which bootstraps the actual system. If you ever want to install Arch, you should follow the beginners guide: https://wiki.archlinux.org/in…
  • Arch is great.... if you want to know how everything works. Once you've set up an Arch desktop succesfully, you'll be pretty well versed in how Linux works. At least most of the basics. Also, the Arch Wiki is an exceptionally good source of informat…
  • Mmm.... Stardew Valley.... and it runs perfectly on Linux. I've already sunk 70ish hours into it, and I didn't start playing that long ago either. Completed all the rec center bundles and everything. Screw you Joja Mart
  • To be fair, he is in Vietnam. :P
  • Might want to add some cooling fans into the mix. Under load, the RPi3 tends to run pretty hot from my understanding (my RPi is never under load).
  • @Linc said: If sucking meant failure, half of Vanilla's competitors would be out of business. Not that you're biased or anything
  • Red Smoke without having to find parking in Greektown? Yes plz.
  • @Linc said: I've been playing Spreadsheets: Magic Cards. I've heard you use the cards in a multiplayer game mode too but no one ever seems to want to try that. Yeah... what is up with that? I can never find anyone to play either. Might ha…

  • @GHoosdum said: Since my last update, I accidentally purchased a 2017 Volt. How does one accidentally purchase a brand new car (which I am very jealous of, love the Volt almost as much as the Tesla Model S)

  • @Thrax - would it really make a noticable difference to go from the G.Skill Ripjaws V RAM I specced out to the Corsair your posted? Does downclocking a higher speed RAM actually yield worthwhile performance gains? I haven't been into enthusiast leve…
  • Okay... well... regardless of the quality of onboard sound, that board doesn't have analog 5.1 out, so it's a moot point. If I went mATX (at this point) I need a sound card, and I really want to build a tiny box, because having mid-full size towers …

  • Well... that's good at least... My AM2+ Gigabyte board has horrible isolation. Drives me crazy. I also wish there was a Micro ATX board with a well isolated 5.1 (or better) on board. I really like the idea of building a small rig that can sit on my …
  • When I have time to sit down and game lately, I'm playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Also, when I want to kick back on the couch, Broforce (horray for Steam Link)
  • @primesuspect said: Just out of curiosity: If you want to keep the price down, the motherboard has a perfectly good sound controller on-board. Any super-compelling reason you would get a discreet sound card? On board doesn't do 5.1 sound,…
