    Xbox Game Pass For PC

    I bought it on Steam. I can verify that it does not update through Steam, although there are small updates that I presume are launcher updates. I started the game today knowing that world update 6 has dropped and I am having trouble getting it to stay "connected" for the update download even...

    THIS is Why Nvidia Should Add MORE VRAM!

    I have no data, but I can imagine that the size of the HD files can be manipulated to the degree that is required to have more VRAM. Lets say no attempt to "make it fit" under 12 GB, or less. After watching some of the videos this week showing that the ultra settings are barely noticeable, I...

    THIS is Why Nvidia Should Add MORE VRAM!

    AMD sponsored game has "optional" HD textures that take up a lot of VRAM... hmm, almost like they did that on purpose, eh? I would never turn down more VRAM, and I expect that NVidia will likely respond by upping the VRAM on their next generation, but this is more of a gimmick than anything else.

    Screen Cleaning solutions

    I just use a damp microfibre cloth. No cleaners on it, it does the job on monitors and TV screens alike.

    Game Sale PSA

    Thanks, I snagged it. Maybe I'll give it a try as filler.

    Solo non-computer games

    I have a sudden urge to push physical bit around maps and boards. I ordered up a set of Gloomhaven stuff but I was wondering if anyone else has any games designed specifically for solo play, or a good rule set to simulate an opposition. I was looking at various wargames and such as well. In...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, Gloomhaven, and a removable sticker set for Gloomhaven. For those days when a computer game will not scratch that itch, it is time for some solo dungeon diving.

    First upgrade since 2012

    I use PC Part Picker and usually buy from the lowest seller, shipping included. If the part might need returning I try and source it from Amazon due to their excellent return policy. I've bought and returned monitors through Amazon without issue. I have used Newegg a few times, usually when...

    Kill Switch on Samsung TVs

    I bought a couple of faraday bags from Amazon. I put the fob in it and went right out to the car to make sure it worked, it did the trick. I put my keys into the bag when I get home, so does the wife. I trust no one, no matter where I live.

    help me...I have screwed up so badly!!!

    Do you have some recovery software? Acronis or the like. There are a few out there that can recover whole partitions if they are accidentally deleted.

    My understanding is that freehold means you own the property that the house is on. That should not harm a mortgage, but enhance the value of the property as a whole.

    Intel releasing 7nm…nope just rebadging 10nm as 7

    After watching Der8auer's microscope study of AMD and Intel microprocessors the "nm" pitch thing is basically marketing. We are still better off evaluating CPUs on a range of metrics.

    3DMark (2013): Post your scores!

    I have a Hybrid FTW3. I have not flashed any power limit remover, just using the OC BIOS that was installed at the factory. I was going to see if I could wring out a little more but I think I'll wait till ambient in the house gets back closer to 21C again. Too warm to be OC'ing.

    Rants etc.....

    Sorry to hear this. I hate this bidding garbage that realtors have allowed to happen. It puts more money in their pockets but it is a slimy practice. When we bought our first place in 1995 there was no bidding (in Alberta at the time). We placed an offer, our realtor took it to the other people...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    No gaming at all. Just movies and sports. Not that it will make the video better but I picked up the ST:TNG box for summer viewing.

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Ordered a Sony XR65A80J OLED from Costco. Even sprung $99 for the extra 3 year to extend the coverage to 5 full no questions asked years. I rarely buy any kind of extra warranty but it seemed reasonable given the overall cost of the TV.

    All I know is it is hot, damn hot, hotter than it should be hot. The Weather Network is forecasting 38C Sunday and Monday in Courtenay now. They have been changing hourly it seems, as they firm up the forecast. Here is a link to a meteorologist who lives and publishes in the Pacific Northwest...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    Bought a used portable AC unit for my lower floor. We don't have a furnace, therefore no ducts, so no central air. For the short time we need AC here in Courtenay a hose in the window unit will do. My outdoor thermometer says 38 fricken degrees! Highest I think I have seen here since we moved in...
