Re: fail thread

An ex-conservative friend of mine told me a story about a conversation she had with someone who remained much more active in the conservative movement. The active conservative had raged about “liberal elites” until finally my friend could stand it no longer: “You went to law school. Why aren’t you ...

Re: Hearthstone Duels

Like all Hearthstone, any game mode is gonna have some high variance real bullshit from time to time. I think it's more palatable in Duels, because no one can do the bullshit on every run due to the draft nature of the format, so it feels less suffocating.

Hearthstone Duels

This is a new game mode in Hearthstone, currently in beta testing. It's interesting to compare against ranked and Battlegrounds, which is also a new game mode currently in beta testing. I spent $45 in total on my card collection: one $20 bundle for the latest expansion (Darkmoon), one $20 bundle for...

Venture Capital is deforming business

The article says "deforming capitalism" but honestly I think capitalism is doing just fine. It's this whole concept of "making goods or services and exchanging them for money" which is being unrecognizably bent. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/11/30/how-venture-capitalists-are-deforming-capi...

Broadly, we're looking at a landscape right now where there's many UHD options, and many wide gamut high contrast HDR options, but very few UHD wide gamut HDR options, especially at sizes > 30". :evil:

Re: 2020 HW thread

Big problem with my previous posted: all the Nvidia cards launched thus far are for 650W or bigger PSUs! However, looking at the Founders Edition card, I am guessing the 225W cards won't really be 4K@60FPS, which is what I'm in the market for. Even the 3070 can't do that at max settings, but if I re...
