    I love my job.

    Scored a gig! Sr E-Commerce Data Analyst for a major retailer here in the south/southeast. Going from Big Oil, to Big 2A, as they are a major seller of firearms and ammo, so I still get to hurt some feelings, LOL! Should be starting later this month or possibly next month. FeelsGoodMan! Carlos.

  2. Series X acquired! My son's friend bought one, never opened it, and decided he didn't want the expense at this time. He sold it to me at retail price, plus tax. I'll set 'er up and give it a try this afternoon. Still trying to lock down one of those pesky "job" thingy's that are all the rage these days. Carlos.

  5. First details on the next-generation VR system coming to the PS5 console. Hideaki Nishino, Senior Vice President, Platform Planning & Management, writing for the PlayStation Blog: Not a lot of details as of yet, but I'm sure this will make PlayStation VR fans very happy.

  7. I disagree strongly on the quality of Stardust - I think it's up with The Princess Bride, and in some ways a better story, just less quotable, in that fake romantic fantasy genre. Though De Niro's character hasn't aged well... Jamie Lee Curtis needs added to your list, that's the real point of this post.

  8. Riddle me this -- your $500 PS5 can't read DVDs. And it can't read blurays. You never knew this because you didn't even try to use discs until months after you bought it. What do you do? Do you return your faulty PS5 while it is still under warranty? Even though there is a shortage and you might not be able to get a replacement? Also you don't really care about discs anyway....?! OR do you just flip your PS5 over, so it is no longer upside down? And then everything works fine.

  10. I’m just adoring WV. I don’t know a lot of this Marvel comic stuff going on, I don’t need to, but the jokes are funny, the plot doesn’t hang around too much, the mystery has enough of its own twisted logic that it doesn’t feel there just to string us along, and everyone from Hahn to Bettany is great fun.

    Started messing with the CNC, and the first test went OK. Second test...broke a bit because I messed up and hit "run boundary" when I shouldn't have. Bit hits clamp, bit snaps off. Second test...broke another bit. This time the workpiece slipped, and the bit hit the side of the board and snapped. Bought more bits on Amazon... This weekend, I tried again, and as a bonus, I found some helpful writeups on the Snapmaker forum to show how to do CNC tool changes. I didn't realize that you could set the X, Y, Z for the home point independently, so I tried creating something with a 3

  12. I finally got around to purchasing this collection after the new year. I just finished playing through all three games and wanted to share some quick thoughts on how well they hold up in 2021 and talk about about each port. Super Mario 64 This is the game in the collection I'm most familiar with, having played it multiple times over the past 25 years. Overall, it holds up pretty well. It does have a certain first gen 3D platformer janky-ness to it when compared to a modern title like Super Mario Odyssey, but that's to be expected. It's still amazes me how much Nintendo

  14. Continuing my mission to play everything ever, according to my wife... And I've come to enjoy blinging out the games damn near as much as playing them. Anachrony is an amazing game. I ended up buying it twice to get an Infinity Box. It's that good. Hauled it to the in-laws', too. Which lead me to getting Trickerion: CE. Mindclash produce some impressive experiences. Late pledged Perseverance to avoid any future snafus. Lesson learned. Dwellings of Eldervale Legendary Edition is another over-the-t

    The big ass enclosure definitely adds bulk, but yeah, it's a pretty big print area: This should give you an idea of the overall size: Tried the obligatory "plastic crap that sits on a desk" print, and also wanted to try out something that had print in place flex, so I made a dragon: 24h print, and a little harder to get off the print sheet, but otherwise turned out really well. Doing a different controller wall mount now, and will probably print more of those Gloomhaven boxes for the other in-play characters after that. Should keep the printer r

  21. Nothing of value was lost. To be clear, I’m not even wading into the controversy surrounding her at the moment either. From a pure acting perspective, she was the weakest link on the show from the outset and at her best she was just “fine” as an ensemble cast member. Bill Burr ran circles around her in the acting/range department in the two episodes he was in.

  23. I like inexpensive sets of plastic boards from Costco or dirt cheap plastic boards from restaurant supply. Nothing wrong with the nice stuff (except glass, that's bullshit and wreck's your knife edge). But I find that the cheap plastic ones last very, very, very long. And if you wanna soak them in a mild bleach solution? Go for it. Chuck in the dishwasher? Yep, go for it.

  24. So I followed Josh’s lead and contacted LG for support. FedEx dropped off the new panel last week and technician arrived today (after postponing Monday due to snowstorm). Happy to say that everything went smoothly. Here are before and after pics. Am I correct in thinking that, since I have the same inner parts except for the new module, that I don’t need to calibrate? Image looks identical to how it did after using the rtings settings when I first got it.

  25. I must say, backward compatibility has been such a blessing with the PS5. I'm currently ten hours into Persona 5, a game that's supposed to have some 80-90hrs of gameplay even for the average player like myself. I've got Control UE waiting for me, I've got a Claire play through in Resident Evil 2 to do at some stage, I've Monster Hunter World, Man-eater and others of interest to try in my PS+ backlog... It's genuinely hard to predict when my next actual PS5 game purchase will be (quite likely it's not going to be until the release of Village at this rate), and I've still yet to pur

    So my Snapmaker A350 finally showed up this week. It left China Oct 20, shipping by sea, which I knew would take a while, but it sounds like there were some additional delays, some COVID related, some importer related, and some UPS related. In any case, everything arrived, and seemingly undamaged: I've only used the 3d printing function so far, but will probably dig into the CNC/Laser stuff next weekend. Too many things I want to try printing first. Ended up starting with a benchy to see whether everything worked as expected: Seems OK so far. Next was a

    Time To Build A New PC

    Well guess what. Late last night Microcenters in the area got a restock of cards right when I was in the middle of something which I couldn't leave from. But good news is I went first thing this morning, was second in line , and picked up a 3060ti . The line was 30 deep by the time we got it, and its damn cold today. They had five 3060TI left and twenty or so 3090's which you need to take out a loan for. They said the store in Flushing has a lot of everything available if people were looking for a 3070 or 3080. So I just ordered the rest of the parts I need from New Egg (everythi

    The Muppet Show upscales look really nice, and from the episodes I checked they are thankfully the UK broadcast versions. The Chris Langham episode is missing, which is no real surprise, but the Brooke Shields episode isn't there either which is strange (I can only assume there was a rights issue they just couldn't clear, or she wouldn't sign off on the episode).

    I love Amazon Prime

    Anyone else find that the timing of their delivery-by-Amazon is inversely related to the degree of anticipation? Some badass new product? Arrives between 7-9pm, and they taunt you with the "it's-10-stops-away" real-time tracker! Something you don't need/want in your hands right fucking now? Siting on your doorstep at 10am. Do they have an algorithm for this or some shit? It seems beyond coincidental for me. Anyone consistently on the early-bird delivery continuum? I mean, there has to be a lucky HALF who are on the morning-side of the deliver

  38. For me the gunplay was pretty poor - it was improved after some patching but, not comparable to Destiny or anything else really. The game remained pretty buggy and this wasn’t a floating coffee cup or anything - this was a failed instance (several times) that meant a complete restart was required and it could happen in the middle of missions, etc. Movement was still way to “floaty” and didn’t ever have a consistent feel. The loot rotation was broken (badly) at first and they did improve that over time but, it never got good I would say; only not broken. The story was completely disjointed and

The use of the dime-a-dozen power cord is going to make this unit portable around my house. 1080P on the media room PJ, 4K in my downstairs room. Downloading my brains out right now. I'll probably wait until the weekend to give it a decent spin. Carlos.

  42. Even though I did play Spider-man first, the vast majority of my time with my PS5, and with gaming over the last few months, has been playing a PS4 game on my PS5. My PS5 feels more like a PC upgrade purchase than a new system. Which I actually consider a positive thing. In years past I would just blindly play the new and mostly mediocre launch games of a system. But now, I'm just playing whatever the best games are.
