https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbF342gKELY So TIL this guy was the first dude to ever build a mixing console of any kind that integrated a computer system with an inline audio console. Eventually, his home system was a wild Frankenstein's Monster based on the original console (upgrading the compte...

Well there's a reason it's still not accepted in a lot of places the other two of the big three are, even fifty, sixty years on.

Re: The Continuing (Mis)adventures of Car Notch

I'd be fucking losing it at AMEX. How does a $14k purchase go through without the slightest safeguard or check by your CC company?? Like okay, maybe this guy makes that much an hour and so has stupidly high limits? But I feel like if that was true he wouldn't be posting "OMG $14k wtf" in t...

Re: The unbearable cuteness of D'AWWWWWW

Well, in spite of their size, cougars (and lynx) are technically still part of the "Felidae" subtree of the cat family, of which housecats and their various wild analogues form the majority of the species (the other being the Panthera, which is basically all the big cats). Then again, when...

Re: Game musings and news

As a side annoyance for those of us with weaker machines but strong network connections, the stubborn need for third party loot filters renders Gforce Now ususable as a solution because Nvidia don't support any third party mods.

It's like they interpret this as being deliberately outwitted or sabotaged. I mean, if the player was doing something munchkin-y or abusing an explo...

Re: Game musings and news

I mentioned I'd put up a summary of the state of Path of Exile in Jackchat tonight because a couple people were interested, so uh, here ya go. It still ended up as a longpost, hence the spoiler tag. If you just want to get to the really crazy parts, scroll down to "Current State". Path of ...
