  1. Quick update on my family’s situation. Our youngest boy continues to have a mild fever in the low 99s. He seemed like he was on the upswing late-Thursday and all day Friday. His temp was normal the entire day, but it jumped back up above 99 on Saturday. He has to be fever-free for three whole days without any medication before he can return to daycare. It’s looking like he may not go back this week, and if he does, it wouldn’t be until the end of the week. Aside from that, he continues to be fine, as if he doesn’t feel sick at all. At the behest of her employer, my wife went in for

  2. I've always liked the reaction system so I can simply say “I saw you posted and here’s what I think about it“ without having to make a reply, which probably didn't warrant a reply anyway. The data shows that's the case in this ranked list of Reaction Givers: 🏆to @Magness Since there's been any type of reaction system in the forum, we've reacted to posts 25,725 times. Here's a breakdown of which reactions were used most going back to 2018: And when you filter out "Like" to see the rest: These are sort of the

  3. Just a quick update — the test for our older boy came back negative. Of course that just means that he didn’t have it on Friday when he got tested. Considering how much exposure he’s had to his little brother the past few days, there’s still a chance he’ll contract it as well. We just have to wait and see. My wife, who is a CT Tech at a local heart clinic, spoke with the Minnesota Department of Health and received recommendations on when it would be appropriate for her to return to work. They said she should wait three days after our son is no longer symptomatic, then wait an addit

  4. Real quick, everyone here in our household is still doing great. My wife went back to work Monday. With both boys now at daycare for the summer (at separate locations), we are now mostly back to our regular routine from before the lockdowns began in March. Last night I got a haircut for the first time since the end of January. Suffice it to say, I needed it badly. It's nice to have short hair again. When I arrived, they took my temperature and asked a few questions regarding my health. Fortunately, everything checked out, and I was permitted to continue with the appointment. I had

  5. When I first started building out the home theater room, really low, wide media stands were very hard to come by, and when you found them, they were in the $2-3K price range. Now, they seem ubiquitous, and cost much less. I got rid of my home made solution, and man it looks fantastic. This is a wide angle shot taken from my sitting position. I never got around to replacing the carpet with a darker color, but with the lights off, it doesn't matter one bit. Carlos.

  6. My sister got her test result yesterday: negative. That means it's likely no one else in the family has it either, since we're in frequent contact. We'd all be wiped out if one of us had it. Sorry to hear about your relative, Daniel.

  7. Got the email confirmation from Amazon at least. Physical. Digital Foundry had better not reveal it to be noisier than the digital model! Interestingly they did not even upload the digital version for pre-order yet. Miles isn't on Amazon UK yet but I will order that at a later date. I need to grab 12 months PS+ while I can still get it on sale too.

  11. So...l finally ended up making a decision on the TV. (Not really having much of a choice after the plasma started having screen issues). I have decided to upgrade as much as possible. Started with a 4K disc player,and went with the Panasonic DP-UB820. I had actually bought a Denon X1600h - the day before they announced the 2020 models with the new gaming features and HDMI 2.1. So that went back and I’m getting either the 2700H or going to shoot for the 3700H. In the meantime,I jury rigged my setup around my new baby... We ended up getting a LC CX. (I waited too long to

  12. I didn't want to post until the ink is dry, but I'm excited to announce my own premium streaming service: MonkeyVision+. What do people look for in entertainment today besides another goddamn streaming service? Remakes and reboots -- anything that comes with a built-in nostalgia factor. Our viewers want comforting, non-challenging entertainment. With that in mind, check out some of our exciting TV shows and original movies! A remake of Papillon starring Tracy Morgan and Melissa McCarthy. A television series based on the hit movie Dunstan Checks

  14. I've learned two major things in this work from home situations: 1. There is a fuckton of amazing vintage music concert footage available for free on YouTube. It's a great, not too distracting source of background music while working. 2. The only reason I ever really had to go into the office was to print stuff for my wife and daughter. Carlos.

  15. My stir-crazy confession: I've been working in my media room, keeping the volume very low, with a card table setup with my laptop on a stand and and external keyboard, monitor. I kept hearing a very slight clicking sound, like when you squish cellophane and it expands, but very sporadic, and spaced minutes apart. It was extremely hard to localize. It was driving me crazy, and sometimes I heard it in my left ear, sometimes my right. I thought it was like a static discharge. I mostly heard it on the left side of the room. After ruling out anything in my computer setu

  17. I'd like to share the following about that video. Which I think some of you might appreciate. On Thursday (last week) my daughter said she wanted to record herself singing the Disney song from Tangled and make a music video I told her that I wouldn't do it unless she re-wrote the lyrics for the Coronavirus Yeah, whatever, I re-wrote the lyrics on Thursday night She recorded the song and she edited on Friday We shot the video on Saturday, edited on Sunday, released on Sunday My point is that it all happened very quickly. It is really easy to spend a year, whi

  19. Wow, and here we are, back where we were in April. It sure looks like tomorrow may break a one day record of new cases in the US. It seems like we are on the precipice of a much worse outbreak, given the degree of pandemic fatigue, or just outright idiocy in the form of resistance to mask-wearing. Sorry if that offends, but really, if people can't give the slightest damn about the well-being of other people in their community, they really don't deserve to be part of one. Some people are calling this the second wave, but I don't think it's accurate, we never got close to the end of the first

  21. “How are you?“ My youngest boy (the one who tested positive) went back to daycare last week. My oldest is now at his summer daycare program for the summer. My wife is still home from work for the remainder of the week. If she doesn’t develop any COVID-like symptoms before Monday, she can go back. She’ll have been off for about three-and-a-half weeks by then. She originally took a week-and-a-half off to watch our youngest after his daycare closed, but after the little guy tested positive for COVID, she had to wait an additional two weeks after he had been symptom-free for three days

  22. Well, I've gone and done it. 11" iPad Pro, pencil and keyboard ordered. iPad and pencil will hopefully be with me next week as I ordered them from John Lewis (UK department store) as they have stock and I get an extended 2yr warranty with them. The keyboard is coming from Apple at a later date with a 6th-16th of June estimate. I decided to let common sense prevail and not get Apple's £80 folio case, but have instead opted for a ztotop folio case which has good reviews on Amazon and function/design wise seems damn near identical to the Apple folio... It's also only £15, so that has

  23. Like many of you, I've been working from home since early March. My company's response has really been amazing and ahead of the curve. Acquiring new hardware (computers, wifi hot spots, monitors, etc.) for employees, extra pay each month to cover work from home expenses, unlimited sick time, extending benefits for child care assistance, and it seems like they mail us gifts every other week (everything from warm cookies to clothing to booze). Now, the company has committed to continuing our work from home plan through September 7. That really blew me away. I may be drinking the Kool-aid bu

  26. Gutted the Retro setup and wire managed the fuck out it where I could. Those who have been to my place and checked out the setup knows that there was a rats nest of wires hanging behind the furniture. I tried my damndest to clean that up. Anything left are things I need access to and can’t tie down. Some during and after shots....

  27. Yesterday I took delivery of a new gaming peripheral designed to help me win more rally stages in Dirt Rally 2, and more generally to assist in any driving game where I use my FFB wheel setup. It's well-made (in America no less), on the expensive side for what it does, and so far seems to be exactly what I needed. I felt more comfortable in teh driver's seat and more able to handle the capricious vicissitudes of a brutal rally sim. What is this magic gaming peripheral? .... A lumbar car seat insert.

  34. I played through a video game! Totally fucked it, though. I got Connor mothballed, Markus dead, and the androids eradicated. But, my actions did stop the war in the Arctic or some shit, so you're welcome humanity! I did manage to save the little girl, so that felt good. Kara was murdered right in front of her though, so, you know she's on her way to being a stripper, or a super hero. I got the digital pack that included Heavy Rain, which I never finished before, so I'll see how I can fuck that up now. Carlos.

  35. Also, about the whole China business. I agree that they probably have lied. But even without lies, what we did know was quite serious. I mean, they locked down an entire province. Even without accurate numbers, that’s a significant sign that some ugly viral shit was going down. But, if by covering up the truth, China doomed the rest of the world to suffer, how do you explain the way South Korea and especially Taiwan managed to keep their numbers low? They did it by acting swiftly, enforcing quarantine measures very early, and focusing a LOT of energy on developing and
