    [DEAD] Today deals only: TurboTax 2021.

    Been using FreeTaxUSA for the last couple years, as well. I think I used TaxAct before as well. They are all the same as far as I could tell. My filing is pretty basic with occasional dividend or employee stock purchase sales; the software guided me through those easy.

    Terminator: Resistance

    I got excited when I saw the almost 5GB download and thought Annihilation was free...not so. I'm still working through the original game anyways.

    Call of Juarez: Gunslinger free on Steam

    Thanks for the heads up. Fired it up for about an hour. It's pretty fun.

    Pixel 4a thoughts?

    Vengance_01 $254 with tax. I got some cases (Spigen Tough & Caseology Vault) and extra screen protectors with it. That is actually a bit on the low side of average right now with these devices, so a good time to unload your old phones and pretty well make all or most of the purchase price...

    Pixel 4a thoughts?

    I just received an excellent used 4a (off Swappa) to play around with. I am coming off an OG Pixel. So far so good; it's the same size but generally seems to perform same or better. My sensors were going bad in the OG; where brightness adjustment and auto-rotate were not working, plus apps...

    Terminator: Resistance

    I actually got goosebumps watching the new DLC trailer!! Thanks for sharing Armenius Did not realize it would only be four hours Colonel Sanders. I agree on pricing but it looks like one heck of a ride. I need to fire up the original content and get through it before this hits.

    Warhammer40k: Darktide (40k Vermintide)

    Spring 2022 on Steam. Looks like it was originally slotted for Fall 2021, but got pushed due to Covid: https://www.pcgamer.com/warhammer-40k-darktide-release-date-gameplay-everything-we-know/ "Darktide will release early in 2022. While previously scheduled for a 2021 release, it was yet...

    World's largest neighborhood of 3D-printed homes to break ground in Texas

    I follow Kirsten Dirksen (Fair Companies) on Youtube, which covers a lot of alternative housing. Here's one she covered on 3-D printed house. OPs is interesting but I would be concerned about insulation in a concrete printed house (in all fairness did not watch the full video or other links).

    Pixel 5A

    I have a Spigen Tough Armor case (TPU and Polycarbonate shell) on the Pixel and have dropped it plenty of times with no damage. If I decide to get the 5a; I'll definitely grab one again...

    Pixel 5A

    That must be the 4a 5G....the regular 4a's are between $275-$330 (with one Google edition at $409). https://swappa.com/buy/used/google-pixel-4a/unlocked

    Pixel 5A

    Still not convinced the 5a is all that better than the 4a at this point. If I can track one down new or maybe go through Swappa I may just do it as they are supposed to get updates into 2023.

    Pixel 5A

    I'm still running on an OG Pixel (not very Hard, I know) and for the most part it does what I need. I have been toying with getting a 4A, and just recently went looking at them again. It looks like Google is just letting supply dry up on the 4A as it was not available at my local Best Buy...

    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    That is cool as heck!!! Amazing that all the details hold up when walking through the game in a more close-up and different angle. If someone puts out a mod, I'd play it that way for sure!

    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    I'm running an older set up: 2500K, 8GB RAM, GTX 1070, game on SSD on a 26" 1920x1200 display (60Hz). The game came up with all settings on Ultra. I had read about DX12 having some issues, so ran DX11 with VSYNC on, and I am smooth sailing in the game. I do not have the option to select Ray...

    Android app recommendations for fuel-up/fuel economy logging

    I use Simply Auto. I used the free version for quite awhile but they have sales fairly frequently and I decided to buy a year ago. This lets me add my own maintenance descriptions outside of the limited ones that come with the free version. It lets you upload receipts, or pictures of what you...

    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    I haven't tried. I usually play solo. I do remember reading there were issues with MP, and most of what I skimmed through seemed to be GamePass related issues.

    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    I think they are always available. I tried another side mission where you need to pick up some chemical enhancements for a gym owner in the Node. This is listed as a level 2 quest. This is an error reported on one of the communities (should be level 10). When I was moving toward the entrance...

    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    I just played the intro mission and have gotten to the Warrens in the Arcology. I love it!!!! The environmental details are crazy. The way it looks, the sounds, crowds; it's awesome. I am just running around looking at things. They nailed the cyberpunk/futuristic aspects. I'm playing with...

    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    I went ahead and bought the game tonight. I've been watching the game development and like supporting smaller devs. I have Kickstarted Grim Dawn and Darkest Dungeon, both turned out great. We will see if this one works out like those two. <fingers crossed> Game was just shy of 18GB and I...

    New phone .. Pixel 4a 5g !

    I've never seen it that low either, kirbyrj, and I've been shopping around a bit. Best I have seen (and still current) is a 4a (no 5G) for 299.99 from Best Buy. I'm still limping along on an OG Pixel. Overall still performs well but beginning to see some things start to decline.

    Last Epoch

    Hmmm...always interested in a new ARPG and would certainly throw some money at an upcoming addition to the genre. BUT..the first review on Steam (applekwisp) is pretty indepth and they seem to understand the genre. I do not like the starting price, nor the fact there are microtransactions...

    32” LG 32QN650-B 2560x1440 QHD IPS HDR10 75hz FreeSync Monitor $239 /w code

    I've been poking around trying to figure out similar. It seems this one is IPS vs other panel type (VA), and this one is 75Hz vs 144Hz.

    Sid Meier's Pirates crossed with Torchlight....hmmm. Fond of both but pay to play either in 2021?!

    Terminator: Resistance

    Pulling the trigger on this finally. 40% off looks like the lowest it's been offered and seems to have some more content since release. I'm bored with Division 2, so this should entertain me for a while.

    **It's DEAD, Jim!** Logitech MX518 $19.99 and more on sale at Best Buy

    The new one feels almost exactly like the OG. I had both plugged in and kept swapping back-and-forth whilst surfing the net and also playing some quick games on Kongregate (as a quick way to test some gaming). The laser is definitely more sensitive on the new version, if you raise the DPI with...

    **It's DEAD, Jim!** Logitech MX518 $19.99 and more on sale at Best Buy

    Scored a used OG MX518 on Ebay for under $30, but just bought one of these new ones as a back up. I will test them out side-by-side to see how the new one stacks up against to original.
