  2. TIL how most adults deal with finances in a 4 step program

    1 : Never check bank balance
    2: Pretend everything is fine
    3: Live in constant state of fear
    4: Repeat

    I like my own model better. ( run monthly )
    10 : if income it bigger than expenses, go to end
    20 : if expences are bigger than income try to fix it, go to end

  3. @mrmattimation I think the choice to not have a doorstep was a deliberate one.

  4. @ponfive It has been 20 years since there was a sonic movie, so a team of production companies got together to make a new one, this time going for the full CGI bonanzafest that we pretty much have in all modern 201X movies of nowadays.

    And even though there were some 'leaks' of sonics design the studio responsible chose to went ahead with the trailer despite all of the negative backlash about the leaks. Soon the leaks were shown to be really truthfull when the official trailer was released and fans exploded with anger about how dumb it all looks. For instance Sonic looks WAY more like a human toddler than what he kinda is supposed to look like. ( Big shoes, big head, white gloves )

    As such the director team told the graphics department "HEY ! FIX IT !" ... Now let us hope the story will have a statisfying conclusion when the movie releases in November.

  5. @adiwan Oh, ehh. That sounds a lot like people who never even held a controller and make them design their own controller. That or play Sekiro, not sure which is the more hilarious thing to imagine.

    I am afraid that without going into any details I can not imagine how hard it is to deliver on such a weird thing.

    Though I would have probably given up a long time ago and instead just tried to make a miniature replica and let people 'do the thing' on that thing.

    Or... maybe... try to use this thing somehow ? http://rainbowdash.net/url/874441

  8. @microsbm I was looking at http://rainbowdash.net/url/874428 and http://rainbowdash.net/url/874429 .

    But right now I am at the stage where people really want me to fix it WITHOUT spending any money and also WITHOUT going down on the featureset. That is not really possible, Though I guess I could use an HDMI audio extractor with 5.1 channels off of Aliexpress.

    Can you feel my eyeballs tumbling at top speed here ? I really do not want to do the latter.

  10. @scribus People like to be edgy, especially when anonymous. Heck the number of people that I 'raped' in online multiplayer games is probably astronomical. ... And then I learned what the word actually meant.

  11. So aparently I am looking for a new amplifier with at least one HDMI port for the beamer (Projector) online at 03:22 in the middle of the night because something broke at work and I know noone even remembers the impedance of the speakers which are in that room currently NOR if there is any money to replace the broken amplifier system.

    I should go to bed instead. Screw this, probably gonna get yelled at tomorrow anyway.

  15. @scribus ... Intentionally ? I mean the underside of my shoes get awfully sticky at such places, and sometimes you just want to make sure the noizemakers stop by kicking the noizemakers.

    "I swear I did not know it was a child, I thought it was someone with Dwarfism. Why would you take someone of about 12 to the Wolf of Wall Street ?"

    Heheh, my imagination is running overtime now.

  16. @adiwan and gummy bears, and coca cola lids, and taffee, and cookies, and cupcakes, and sushi, and soft pretzels, and banana & Peanutbutter, and yoghurt, and ( melted ) ice cream, and Starmix, Heck I once exited the cinema with almost a complete pizza stuck under there.

    ... I am no longer fans of such places...

  17. @adiwan Are you referring to the theater experience that for no properly explainable reason whenever I go to such places I always get home a few CM taller ?

  19. Heck, I just remembered seeing a video where they say and show if you punch Piper's head off and the body ( and head ) lands outside of NPC detection range just before the guards come check you out then all scripting still plays out as it should, just with Piper's dialogue missing, even though everyone still acts like she is saying what she is supposed to say. To me that was more hilarious than pretty much anything else in Fallout 4 since you can never just say "no".

    "Well I am just going to add this waypoint marker to your map in case you change your mind later", ehh, thank you ?

  20. @firestormdangerdash Hmm, I actually liked Fallout 3. You play as an ordinary vault dweller, nothing special and you are going to do great things. Then when you played the game a few times you realize that the game is quite lineair and ruggid at its lineairness. It is nothing like Fallout 1 or 2, but still enjoyable. Then New Vegas happened and that was great as well, more options, more guns, factions, it felt more 'alive' with deathclaws being actually deadly. Still pretty lineair but really enjoyable with multiple branches to take leading to the ends of the game.

    And then Fallout 4 happened, just what went wrong in the creative process I will never know but for the love of gaming, that game is more lineair than an original Doom level is flat. Only being able to say either "Yes" , "Not now", "Sarcastic yes" or "inquire to more information" on all quest NPC's. Might as well have been a book. And that is exactly how I feel about TES 4 and 5. Flat.

  21. @firestormdangerdash What do you even DO in Skyrim ? Most people I know just take up a profession as one of the FIRST things they do, grind it to perfection, and then go raid dungeons hoping to forge some legendary sword but it needs materials or something. It never struck me as something a Dragonborn would DO.

  22. By playerbase I mean the amount of gamers that owned either a capable PC or a capable console. To the best of my recollection there were about 50 million more 'capable machines' between 2002 and 2005, even if only 25% of those machines made their way into the hands of gamers and only a quarter of those were 'new gamers' then as far as Todd Howard was concerned Ken Rolston failed with a mere 1.61 million sales increase where Todd had expected 3 million more copies sold.

    Note that I do not even know how much more capable machines were sold between 2005 and 2006, the year in which Oblivion launched.

  23. @mrmattimation Oh please, Morrowind is at least 15 times better than TES 4 and 5 combined on the basis alone that it makes you feel like an adventurer. Unless if you do not see the beauty of being on the bottom of the food chain and want to see if you can crawl out I guess.

    The fall of Elder Scrolls as far as I am concerned happened LONG before Ken Rolston was kinda only hired to be a yes-men for Oblivion's design. The game HAD TO appeal to a broader audience, with 2.86 million sales of Morrowind versus 4.47 million sales of Oblivion even though the playerbase has grown a LOT more. The game simply made you feel 'too special'. Something which they only doubled down on as they made you 'The Dragonborn'.

    I no longer feel like I am a part of the game in those games, I feel like I am a god, I can do everything and that is before I even think about turning on the cheats. I would rather be immersed in the story while knowing that the combat totally sucks. Something Skyrim still did not fix

  24. @adiwan Agreed, you can litterally achieve the same with a USB C hook connector and the cheapest tablet stand you can find.But that does not make me any less curious regarding and I still would like to see a picture of the official stand's internals.

    "But it is Nintendo's official product and it just looks good" - a fanboy

    Look, I am not saying you should not get it, I just expect more than just a fancy looking passthrough of GND, VBUS, CC and USB 2.0 data channels on something that would cost 25 Euro's and has USB type C. What for ? Well, Idunno really, but I am sure there is someone out there who would prefer to play with an XboX controller while in handheld mode and charging at the same time.

  26. Chinese Nintendo Switch adjustable charging stand. Minor repair was needed when I got it. Took a picture while my soldering iron was heating up. I can't help but wonder how similar the official one looks on the inside. No really, I can not find a teardown of that thing. http://rainbowdash.net/url/874404

  29. @scribus Reddit is ALWAYS screaming either at or in their own butt about really silly stuff.

    It'll either be good or not, just like the comics. However I have a feeling that the comics end up being a whole lot better. Black Panther : The Bride was not exactly grade A material but it was still better than the average MCU movie in my honest opinion.

    Besides the guy has an elongated guitar pick as standard arnament. He is going to be tough to write unless if you make one of his 'attributes' key.

    Sudden realization

    Oh hell no, I can see what they are doing now without even going to that Reddit. If I am right on this you can considder my reaction to that as pretty much this 5 second YouTube thing http://rainbowdash.net/url/874391

  30. "Could you burn this on DVD ?"

    Oh mom, You know how it is almost cute when old people talk all hip about technology and stuff

    "Don't you sass me, also do not talk like a Fluffle Puffing millennial"

    Alright alright, message recieved, wow you are a total buzzkill. Let me see if I still have that 2007 laptop, I think I remember that it had a DVD burner combo.

    "Wait, 2007 laptop ?

    2007 laptop

    "That is 12 years ago"

    Yes, I know, I can count, you raised me well.
