    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is real

    Even if Eth goes through with the changes, there will be another token that the GPU miners will latch on to in order to continue to use their hardware and the cycle will repeat. The cat's out of the bag.

    Rp600m for 250 is a stupid good deal.

    Steam (International) down China wide, Steam China still working

    I call shens that you made it to lvl 80, to Final Seph, without a save cart, in a long weekend. That would mean that you didn't die once basically after leaving the first reactor, and I'm not buying it. Cool story though.

    Klipsch RP-160M Reference Premiere Monitor Speakers (Pair) - $249 @ Newegg

    Bangin' center channel. I had one with a set of Heresy II's but they didn't match at all. Dad is running one with a pair of Bob Crites Cornscalla's and they have a great timbre match.

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    Wife and I watched M4 on HBO Max. Terrible movie, and we are big Matrix fans. We almost turned it off several times because of how boring it was. It wasn't a tough movie to figure out, was pretty obvious right away with the blue pills and the shrink. It kinda felt like the movie wasn't...

    Sub mode is at LFE and 120Hz :) I thought you were saying to set speaker crossover to 120Hz. Lol

    No, but directionality does, and dual subs solves that problem.

    First HT

    I have read quite a bit on the LFE setting. Everything that I've read has said that if you have a solo sub, to leave it at 80Hz due to directionallity concerns. THX also states this. I've also read that there is very little actual LFE up in 120Hz. Then again, I've only been reading at AVS. Do...

    First HT

    Lol. The KSW-15 is garbage. It's going to the curb on Monday. Gonna keep the LPF set at 80Hz per THX. If I had duallies, I might do the 120Hz, but my room is already on the small side and sometimes the gets directional. BTW, try out their isolation feet. I put them on, didn't say a word to...

    I'm jelly on the duallies! I have another pb1000pro sitting in the garage. After these new Prime Towers, I don't think I need it lol. I have a minidsp mic arriving on Friday, so that will determine if I pull it out or send it back.

    I have not rerun it. I actually didn't like the way YPAO calibration made everything sound, so I made adjustments myself. My L/R are exactly the same distance and angle from each other, the Center, and MLP, so I have them with a 0dB offset. I have the Center with +3dB and the sub +3dB(-10db in...

    I do need to dig into the AVR settings more. I have the Yamaha RX-V4A. It doesn't offer much as far as settings go, pretty basic. I wish I would have spent more, but such is the HT game.

    First HT

    Copied over from my post on AVS. Bought some new speakers. Prime Towers to replace a pair of Heresy II's from '04 and the Prime Center to replace a RP-450C that I just bought. I hated the sound of the 450C pretty much right from the very go. Even the wife commented that it sounded like...

    RP-450C is going back to Crutchfield. Women's voices sound amazing, but men's voices sound like they are coming from a shoebox. The Heresy II's... well, I thought the speakers were a gift from dad, but when he found out I made over $17k this month, today he asked me to pay him for them. I...

    Blizzard Announces Diablo 2: Resurrected

    Did you not play 20 years ago? Do you not play now? Diablo 3 is not anywhere even close to the same game as Diablo 2, especially when it comes to "how to play the game". They did not have nearly enough people in the beta to break the game, obviously. Blue posts aren't heard to find so you can...

    You probably are right about the elevation speakers. I can easily mount those on the ceiling and pull the wife for them through the walls. However, back behind the couch is open area and less than ideal for surround. Three active blue healers will destroy all speaker cables lol.

    First HT

    My first HT. Nothing too special. Sub is an old KSW15 that's served my family well since 2000. Pair of Heresy II's circa 2003, and an RP-450C that I just picked up on sale at Crutchfield. Budget AVR until all the HDMI2.1 pass through stuff ia figured out, so went with the Yamaha RX-V4A. I have...

    Ha! Things we now know how to engineer around. Your coal stuff is outdated though. Not really a thing anymore, more a thing for old timers before the protections were put in place. I work in coal country for the smallest of operators up to the big dogs, and we have several former miners...

    My dad is 60, he got me into the original D2 when I was a kid, 20 years ago. I've been playing ever since. Loving D2R, just as much as D2 when I was 14/15.

    Well, air gap transformers are the obvious answer to that issue, but again, raw materials. And charging speed.

    Funny you mention reading comprehension, when you yourself are suffering from a lack of it. Neutrons are scary, I get it. We've made mistakes. We know how to not make those mistakes, but believe it or not, politicians and people like you are in the way. Read up on fast neutron reactors. Read up...

    As I mentioned, hippies getting in the way. Emotional folks who are unable to apply logical thought. The past IS the past.

    You can mock me all you want, but it's obvious you know zilch of the game's history and have read nothing when it comes to the billions of interviews the devs given over the years. They set out to create D&D in a PC game. They did that.

    It made a good balance of between picking up everything on the ground, having an inventory full of potions or charms, or arrows/bolts and javelins. They've discussed all these things over the years in various interviews. One of those thought processes- if you're going to range damage, you're...
