  2. @drinkingpony I think you have to be an American Democrat to understand why I hate American Democrats the way I do.

  3. @drinkingpony Haha. How comes? I only know someone I studied with and was super enthusiastic about the Hololens and bought it for himself for playing around (as in programming with it). I'd say he was a sane guy and quite intelligent so I think that was a purchase with more promise for the future. As for non-programmers it'd be definitely insane.

  4. @drinkingpony No sane person buys a Hololens for oneself. The Hololens 1 is a tech demo for itself. Limited interaction opportunities (a single hand gesture or a button on a remote) (it has bluetooth but there is no standard input device) and a very limited field of view, and it is hugely expensive. The Hololens 2 fixes a lot of problems by almost doubling the field of view and offering full hand tracking within the field of view. It has to be determined how good it performs and if it is affordable at all. So far the industry shows more interest in these products than normal mortal consumers. I don't think that it will change anytime soon.

  5. @drinkingpony OK... When you pay extra to see Avatar or TRON Legacy with the fancy glasses in a theater, what is it called?

  7. @drinkingpony What!? It's how the 3D camera on my 3DS works. It's how 3D movies, comic books, and even ye olde stereopticon worked. You have, count'em - Height. Width. Depth. One, Two, Three. The "optical tricks" in LOTR aren't 3D, they're Forced Perspective. 3D - Three Dimensions. Height, Width, and (ThE iLlUsIoN oF) Depth.

  8. @drinkingpony Also I think I can always re-muddy the issue back to its original topic using... Well... Porn actually.

    How do you know your favorite 3D goggle porn feauting that woman you really like does not either have proportionate dwarfism and really small boobs or proportionate gigantism and really big boobs ?

    Yeah, you need 3D boobs for that... I meant vision...

  9. @drinkingpony What? That's exactly how it works. Two cameras, two slightly different images, one fed to each eye - depth perception! . . . Right?

  15. @drinkingpony This thing is ultra light. The cable will drag it wherever it wants. Also miniHDMI is prone to deteriorate when being pulled and bent silly. I need to think about printing a fixture for my miniHDMI to normal HDMI adapter to the enclosure before I can do anything else (I want it to last at least for a little bit). In the end it'll probably end up somewhere behind the TV with sticky velcro.

  18. @drinkingpony I mean, I have tried it, but I don't think I can honestly say I finished one....

  21. @drinkingpony My expectations were low because it was announced as a "musical" movie but these expectations were broken by being even lower. My main complaint throughout was that it lacked consistency and it retread old plot plot points to the detriment of the pacing.

  22. @drinkingpony Yeah... But the most annoying thing a 3d printer cannot fix is a scratched display. And this is almost impossible to ignore on such a small screen on such a low eye-to-device distance. A replacement display makes it almost up to a new device price-wise.

  23. @drinkingpony For that price I've always seen very banged-up or defective consoles. I'm rather buying a new "New 2DS" and spare me the misfortune to cobble together multiple defective ones to a working one.

  24. @drinkingpony Yeah.... and despite being a suite of nightmares waiting to happen, damn I want one! lol

  26. @drinkingpony My barf tastes like super acidly malty bread. Usually the thing I ate a while before.

  27. @drinkingpony Let's see... I have plans for a time travel action platform puzzler, a top-down fantasy arena combat, a Pac-Man style maze game about gardening, and yeah, if I can swing it a space game kind of like The Guardian Legend where it's 50% space shooter and 50% top-down adventure and 50% maze exploration and 50% gigantic boss fights....

  28. @drinkingpony Yeah, but I also don't have a strong enough competitive drive. I play games for fun, fun doesn't pay the bills. :p I mean, I know I could (on some of these; a lot I genuinely lack the reaction time or manual dexterity; oh, well), but ultimately I wouldn't, you know? Still druther just play for fun and make solo indie games of my own. Perhaps one day... And maybe even sooner than we think!

  29. @drinkingpony Intriguing little adapter. I'll put that into my browser bookmarks. Why are MSI and Gigabyte boards avoided?

  30. @drinkingpony I didn't choose anything in particular. I preliminarily took the average price of the compatible mainboards. It should have 1GBit LAN and USB 3.2 and decent sound and m.2. My demands aren't high. I don't have the need to support old PCI hardware anymore like a 1999 WinTV TV card.
