Parsec

Has anyone heard of Parsec? (https://parsecgaming.com/) Parsec seems to be an extremely high performance/low-latency sharing application geared toward gaming (like vnc but MUCH better). I've installed and got it working on my desktop and laptop and it's been amazing so far! o/ Introduction Youtube T...

Re: Curved monitors and distortion

Update I got my Asus PG348Q ( tftcentral ) on 2017-01-17 and it's been working great for me (wow, it's been over a year now). My MSI GTX 1080 does well on it, but I could definitely make use of more GPU power. At work I use a 3 column 2 row setup of 1080p 24" dell monitors; I'd prefer fewer larger ...

Curved monitors and distortion

Distortion has been holding me back from getting a curved display. Fortunately someone took the time to explain this here ( link ) so I wouldn't have to! However, thanks to nVidia's Pascal, I wonder if Lens Matched Shading (LMS) made possible by simultaneous multi-projection (SMP) can let me have my...

Re: Heroes of the Storm

Stream-of-consciousness info dump. Haven't really played Heroes of the Storm since winter vacation with family (doh!). Winter vacation took me off the grid a bit and I've been busy since I've been home. FFXIV and youtube/parts research has mostly eaten up my time; stuff like: Case and HSF inspiratio...

Re: are-you-smarter-than-other-new-york-times-readers

Now to read your answers (I didn't want to be biased).

My answer in tiny text.
I assumed an average of 30 so picked 20. The winner was 19; oh well!

Re: Heroes of the Storm

Yep, I think I burrowed just past the enemy wall three times and getting stuck and dying to towers before I decided I should probably stop doing that. s/ Anub'arak / Illidan / and you'd have me last night! Of 3x deaths in 1x game, 2x were from diving an enemy and ending up behind their gate :( I go...

Re: Heroes of the Storm

I'll be happy to take the Zeratul code but please give Dave first dibs :) I think Blizzard's done a pretty good job with the heroes so far. I really like Muradin, Uther, Kael'Thas for warrior, support, assassin. I like Jaina, Sylvanas, Sgt. Hammer, and Malfurion too! http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/h...
