  1. @adiwan Throw a chopped potato and some prawns in with the rice, it's the only Iron Chef recipe I've been able to pick up from the show.

  4. @adiwan C# is honestly the best Java-like ever and this is one example why.

  12. @adiwan That is how I used to play Anno 1404 multiplayer, Untill I realised that due to Ubisoft's shoddy coding it would just grab the first network-interface ( of type X, where X is either wired or wireless ) to try to connect to other players.

    Which is a HUGE problem if you have, for instance, VirtualBox installed since it creates a virtual adapter.

  13. @adiwan Just saying that I would not fork over 10% extra money for a whopping 4% extra graphical horsies.

    Also I melted my cupholder that way once.

    No I was not trying to boil water with a USB drive in that one. I am still looking for a suicidal/voluntary USB for that one.

  14. @adiwan Sounds about right, I just build a 3600 Ryzen 5 powered PC for my dad, Though it has only 16 GB of RAM and a GT 710 instead of 64 GB and a RTX 2080 Super.

    No DVD drive though, who needs that in 2020 ? And if you do. Go USB the thing.

    > I need a new case

    Fractal design define R5 or S. Probably not the S if you want to mount multiple HDD's and a DVD drive up front.

    Also I kinda remember Gamers Nexus saying "It is the card noone actually cares about" ( I had it running in the background while doing something else ) http://rainbowdash.net/url/875373 ... So beware on that RTX 2080 Super I guess.

  15. @adiwan Maybe they want the DNA evidence that it was someone on-staff that drank the Cola and as such build a case that you are not lying.

    On the other hand... Pretty sure the RMA combined with the original postage plus the costs of the controller at 90% off is less than the DNA kit.

    Wait, I got lost in the sauce as they say... Why do they want that Cola bottle ?

  16. @adiwan Then they're gonna be all "Why the heck did you send us this?" and you can be like "That's what I wanted to know!"

  18. @adiwan Wait a minute, Who drank your cola ?

    On a more serious note, I hope you are at least gonna get your money back. I mean, I somehow do not think there are any controllers left.

  19. @adiwan Wait... what... Free cola with your Steam Controller ?

  20. @adiwan I see no reason why the fruitcock would pick that up.

  21. @adiwan Yes, it can be done though 4K footage, however you need to go through it frame by frame and you need someone to make best guesses as this someone scetches the fingerprint.

    The real problem begins once we get 8K, people at Defcon estimate that is when you can get bots to scrouge entire video's en-masse looking for fingerprints, Kinda like how face-recognision software works in current era.

  22. @adiwan I am not going to use a weak 5V line to boil stuff. I mean I think with 100% conversion I'd be able to put 2.5 W into my water. Meaning 1 DTU would take approximately 25 seconds per teaspoon of water. So if I go from room temperature to boiling I would need to spend approx 40 minutes on half a cup of water.

    And that is just due to the limitations of the USB line.

  23. @adiwan > The SanDisk one could be used to boil water, metaphorically speaking.

    Methaphorical challenge accepted. Now I just need to find a non-ultra-slim that gets rediculously hot to boil something with.

  26. @adiwan Ohkay, litteral how ? I mean you know it was going to be an expensive product but [ checks local store ] where does the extra 180 Euro come from ?

  27. @adiwan Oh, silly idea. What if you turn them 180 degrees ? Sure they might read 8ㄥ9ϛㄣƐᄅƖ but they would be correctly ordered.

  30. @adiwan There really is not a whole lot that sounds better when it is dubbed tho. Anime is no exception.

    Though I must say I have heard some good things about Full Metal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, InuYasha, Black Butler and SteinsGate.

    Then again I also heard about Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, and Neon Genesis Evangelion that nullify any good will I would ever have for dubs.

    Let me quickly check up on some anime I was into way back when ( before I realized it was pretty much the UC story being soft-rebooted in a different universe ) and so I watched http://rainbowdash.net/url/875336 for about a minute.

    Ohkay so I know this isn't the best scene in the whole anime, and I honestly have a hard time remembering the good bits let alone where they were and in what episode or I would probably go see the bit where Flay goes insane and tries to become boyfriends with Kira. But damn, this sounds SO bad.

    Oh it got so much worse with the techno babble and the "that is all there is ?!?" at 9M
