    I quit gaming.

    After having kids I've had almost zero time for games. I'll still fire up CS:GO for an hour or two with a few cold beers after everyone goes to sleep, but it's pretty rare.

    Cherry MX Browns Too Loud For Office?

    I do a lot of phone interviewing, and my browns were distracting. Now I have two keyboards sitting on my desk, one with browns for when I'm just working alone, and an apple keyboard for when I'm on the phone

    “Amazon Should Replace Local Libraries to Save Taxpayers Money”

    "Amazon Go basically combines a library with a Starbucks." wait.... what? Amazon Go has nothing to do with Books or Coffee? Also.. the Forbes link is dead now.

    Player unknown Battlegrounds

    Bought this today after a few friends convinced me to. Played about an hour and a half tonight. It seems fun, but I get bored sitting around waiting so I start running around, then I get shot in the face. Seems fun, but I'm not sure how much time I'll spend playing. In my hour and a half I think...

    The fact that MS thought it was a good idea to throw Dev hours at this says a lot about their business.

    Nothing PC at Gamestop ...

    I don't understand how game stop is still in business. If there is a title you are looking forward to, why wouldn't you just pre-order it online? Same with new consoles. Even trading in old games can be done online through Amazon now.

    64gb space gray pre-ordered, but showing early december delivery date. I got the case for it yesterday and it is smaller than I expected. I'm excited to see how it looks when I get the actual phone. If I don't like it, I'll sell on Ebay and buy an 8 plus.

    Portuguese ISP Shows Us What the Net Looks like without Net Neutrality

    It's kind of funny how the argument goes both ways. With Cable TV everybody complains that they are paying for a bunch of channels that they will never watch. Nobody complains about all the websites they have access to that they will visit.

    Amazon May Finally Accept PayPal

    I see no reason for amazon to accept paypal. They already offer their own payment service that is much better (and more cost effective for sellers) than paypal. Slumping to paypal seems like a downgrade overall. The sooner paypal dies, the better.

    Video card upgrade for older machine

    Turns out that the 1060 was a great choice. Picked up another 16gb of ram and have been getting 60fps on ultra @ 2560x1600. Some tearing and dips down to ~48fps during crazy explosions and stuff. Overall, totally stoked with the purchase.

    Video card upgrade for older machine

    Monitor is 2560x1600, but I don't need to max everything out. Most of the gaming I do is still older games anyways.

    [Project] F.R.A.M.E

    That looks pretty cool. I would have gone with more straight lines instead of diagonal with the tubing (but it would require more 90 degree turns, and probably less flow)
