    IMO my favorite VR experience was playing through this game: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/5046/The_Gallery__EP1_Call_of_the_Starseed__EP2_Heart_of_the_Emberstone/ It currently has 2 chapters.

    128kbps AAC vs. 128kbps Vorbis

    Well, I don't even use iTunes in the first place. But I just use a single App Store audio player and it plays everything I throw at it. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flac-player/id577346786?mt=8 You don't have to use several different players, just 1 different player for everything. For...

    128kbps AAC vs. 128kbps Vorbis

    Vorbis works just fine on iOS and there are plenty of apps in the App Store that can play it. https://wiki.xiph.org/IOS For example: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/music-player-player-for-lossless-music/id1008200711?mt=8

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Logitech G5 and Logitech G15, both vintage 2005 and still working perfectly. Probably wont replace them until they die on me.

    Delidding

    They make different kinds of superglue. For example you can get a kind that is dissolved by acetone. I used a Loctite formula that can be dissolved by acetone. I just put a tiny dab in each corner of the IHS when re-lidding and it's worked great.

    Free Hacked Spotify Coming to an End

    I've been using Spotify in the browser with a simple adblock plugin in Chrome for a long as I can remember now and have had unlimited ad-free music for free. Are they closing this too somehow?

    Rainbow Six Siege $129.99 but Wait There's MORE!

    I'll admit that I use "pay2win" as you guys call them. Though I simply think of them as pay to keep up. As I have gotten older, I find that I have way more money than time. (For instance, it's way more efficient for me to work and make money and buy the content than not work and sit there and...

    Go home memory prices, you're drunk.

    You don't even have to go back that far. I just checked, when I bought RAM for my i7 930 it as on 8/24/2010 and it was $198 for 6GB of DDR3. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226121 https://imgur.com/zJeGoTF Even right now 8GB of DDR4 3000mhz even is under $100...

    Isn't the mining craze pretty much over?

    I don't really think it's lucky. I know plenty of my friends working for other companies around the area that have the same sort of policy. I'm not a manager, but my boss just says that as long as I get my 40 hours in and get reasonable work done then there is no problem.

    Isn't the mining craze pretty much over?

    Huh? I've been on salary for 7 years now and never worked more than 40 hours in a week. If I stay for more than 8 hours in a day during the week then I am leaving early on friday.

    Nikon Releases 45.7-Megapixel D850 Full-Frame DSLR

    You said it yourself... *Most* lenses. The resolution is there for the times where it doesn't really outresolve them. How about a nice prime lens while using a tripod for instance? SD cards today are getting gigantic, and the camera can still do 7fps at 45MP so is it really a problem? Can't...

    MPC-HC Is Officially Dead

    I switched to MPC-BE a while ago and haven't looked back. MPC-HC even with this latest update doesn't handle HDR videos on a SDR monitor correctly (doesn't tonemap at all) and I guess it never will. MPC-BE has for awhile now.
