  1. Catching up all the youtube videos I missed in the last few days is hard. I watch some at 2x speed or I skip parts.

  7. @mcscx I turned it off and on again. I replaced the power supply. I used a toothpick to reset to manufacturer settings. I disabled WIFI (using the dedicated button on the side). The only thing I didn't try was to rip it out and throw it out of the window. I called my ISP's hotline (Vodafone) and I'll get a replacement device in 3 to 5 work days....

  10. Shower thought: The word "to spit" is an irregular verb with its past tense version being "spat". I'm all for making it more irregular by making "to spit"'s past participle "sput". spit / spat / sput.

  12. I hate the RFID card for opening the door to the building to my workplace. I wish they gave me something small to add to my keychain instead.

  14. I think I found a solution for all the suckers at my work that want 1-button interactions in VR.

  15. I played the first 20 minutes of Fallout 4 VR. It's clunky and not really adapted for VR. A lot of real-world affordances are not met and the teleportation gets blocked way too often in the beginning by awkwardly standing NPCs.

  16. I tried maple syrup for the first time (or I don't remember trying it before). It tastes like burnt wood smells. I don't like it.

  22. I completed Snake Pass in 5 hours. I could have spent more time with it collecting all collectibles but after researching the "reward" I'm inclined not to do so. Also I'm not a fan of collect-a-thons. I was more fascinated by the snake physics and gameplay than gathering everything. In hindsight 20 bucks is a bit much for what I got out of it. It wasn't bad, I quite enjoyed it for its new gameplay, but I would have liked twice as many levels as there are.

  23. @scribus At least you won and will have fun with it. Maybe the others were just resellers or greedy collectors. (I'm half in the latter category ;) )

  26. At my work I used the new Vive Pro (for a moment). It's good, as expected with the higher resolution. The current audio strap is a bit more comfortable for me than the Pro's, however it's not bad. Just personal preference. We couldn't test the cameras at the moment. Ah... it has the same FOV (110°) as the regular Vive.

  30. The graphics card prices are still up through the roof. Even my old MSI GTX 970 has not lost very much of value in comparison to the years prior.
