    This is terrifying... not that I have anything to hide jesus ... but it's just going to spiral from here to the next giant privacy violation.. we'll probably be using China's facial recognition social punishment system in 10 years probably too.. or some form thereof..

    $23 - Tyan Thunder K8SD Pro Dual AMD Opteron Server Motherboard

    very retro groovy... would maybe make a nice plex server.. although my nvidia shield is doing a fine job at that. cool stuff though.

    Domino's Delivery Robots

    I think this should go more like "Man nearly poisoned to death eating Dominos every night... Dominos employees help revive him so they can keep his business" ;)

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    Wow... I have lots of good memories gaming on the Westy... Loads of LoTRO... It became the bedroom TV when I went Eyefinity / Surround ... I ended up giving it away to someone in need of a TV.... then ditched surround for a 40" 4K Samsung with 444 chroma.. then to a 120hz Ultrawide which I am...

    Happy Quakiversary!

    Yeah Quake1's drab color scheme - didn't care for it.. with the voodoo card though it brightened up a lot more but was still very brown/dark green..

    Happy Quakiversary!

    Quake was the game which got me into the voodoo1 card - used to play three player DM at my friends house over coax... We all had voodoo1's and p90s... I liked quake but didn't get super into it like I did Quake 2 (on a Riva 128 back in 97 but was still playing when I had a Celery 450 and TNT2..)...

    Apex Legends launching monday(titanfall BR)

    You would think lol. I think season 8 was my favorite too.. Maybe season 5 close runner-up. I have 1600 hours or so into this game ... been playing since the start and it's still the only game I play really.. I always have fun.. Reminds me so much of Quake2 CTF/Lithium but on a MUCH MUCH...
