    Racism towards greece

    Why is everything racist nowadays? No one's saying the Greek people are inferior nor should they be discriminated against. I fail to see how any of the aforementioned posts convey either of the former 2 messages. Personally, I'm all about prejudice equality. I'd be honored, OP, to make that...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    Done with Persona 5 for now, will come back eventually for NG+. Currently bitten by the Wasteland 2 bug in anticipation for Wasteland 3. Also in the queue is Hyper Light Drifter, Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light (the latter 2 costing $7 total during the Deep Silver Publisher sale). I love...

    My First Linux PC!

    Just from what I've tested, DBZ: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, MGS3: Subsistence, and Gran Turismo 4 all run flawlessly w/ 4x native resolution, MSAA x8, and no speedhacks. Metal Arms (GC) had lag spikes, but OC seemed to resolve that issue.

    My First Linux PC!

    I completely agree with you, but an upgrade path wasn't in the cards for this machine, should all work as planned. All worked as planned. The single-thread performance is the one thing I was after, seeing as to how this is an emulation machine. And yes, it was nice to get it on the cheap...

    My First Linux PC!

    Y'all are more liable to commit scope-creep than I am lol. I...I can see that. Never even occurred to me when I made the title. Intentional or not, I see what you did there. I like the way you think. Exactly. I didn't even think about how Steam games would perform when I made my choices. I...

    My First Linux PC!

    I made the host name juice-runner, but some on here would tell me to call it systemd-box because it's the definition of scope creep. I originally wanted a PS2/Wii/Gamecube emulation box, but I ended up with a mid-range 1080p sleeper. TOTAL COST: ~$405 (Original budget: $550; Revised budget...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    Taking a break from For Honor, borrowed Persona 5 from a friend.

    Librem 5 phone by Purism

    Don't care much for the "fully-open" aspect, but a Linux phone I can fuck with is an insta-buy...if the Pyra doesn't pan out.

    Bluestar Linux (Arch based)

    If you really want Arch but you don't wanna go through the manual install, then just use Arch Anywhere. It's still Arch and you still know exactly what packages are getting installed (as well as having decent-enough control over what's installed...kinda). Since Bluestar is literally just...

    What have you bought recently?

    Must've been the pack of yogurt sticks, then. Idk Relative to its surroundings, anyway. Unfortunately, as a result of the city's reputation for good food, you're also forced to wade through a lot of bullshit, now more than ever. Some overpriced places around here do viral marketing on social...

    What have you bought recently?

    Bro, what? I don't understand you, man. Now I have an image in my head of someone buying a packet of cookie dough and unwrapping it on the move like a candy bar. No! So...the off-brand Trader Joe's? At least half of your county isn't in that store at any given time...unlike the Trader Joe's...

    What have you bought recently?

    So you decided to skimp sending me a care package by teaching me how to fish, huh? I see your angle. All B&J's ice cream is overpriced, and it gets more and more ridiculous the further away you get from a chain supermarket. $5/pt at Wal-Mart, ~$5.70 at most local grocers, $6.25/pt at the gas...

    What have you bought recently?

    Just ordered an Asus RX 560, 4GB version. $125 from B&H. If I couldn't find one for a half-decent price (and I believe this to be a pretty good price), then I probably would've thrown the "all-AMD" idea out of my head and got a GTX 1050 Ti. I also definitely wanted 4GB VRAM because I didn't want...

    Tips for saving up money?

    The power. Linux Action Show put me on Ting. I had 3 issues with them (card not working, help on porting my number over, email not working) and all 3 issues were resolved in 30min total. When my card went through, they even sent me a 2nd SIM card and gave me $15 extra credit on top of the $25...

    Are the 4G modem specs final ? (France: My operator uses 700/1800/2600)

    @levi The amount of money you're paying for all that is borderline comical. Actually ridiculous. Is that the norm out there?

    Are the 4G modem specs final ? (France: My operator uses 700/1800/2600)

    Technically speaking, there is data transferred on all of those bands no matter what you do, so you're not wrong. It's just that your telco chooses to charge you for whatever kind of data's being transferred. Voice and SMS take negligible amounts of data to route unless you and the receiving...

    What have you bought recently?

    Revived my old HP laptop, installed Solus (Linux Steam Integration is beautiful...although I just found out it's in AUR...damn) and decided to catch the very back-end of the Steam Summer Sale. Also, just realized the 3 games I bought are all isometric. Didn't intend to do that. _Wasteland 2...

    What have you bought recently?

    Won a PS4 Slim on eBay for ~$190. My PS4 crapped out (HDMI issues, network connection's in-and-out, eventually wouldn't display anything), and I forgot which email was on that PSN, so it's time to start fresh. The Slim has 5GHz WiFi, so interference from other apartments shouldn't be an issue...

    What if it isn't the CO2?

    Really? This is only my following your logic regarding warmer climates. Read what that's a reply to. Also, that's a couple of degrees AVERAGE. If the weather down here usually represents the average during summer, then it would be nothing but love (~87F+50% humidity) But it doesn't. Not even...
