Logan. Pretty much the mutant version of Road to Perdition, but it also causes mantears.

Re: Celebrity RIP Thread

And more details have been released, apparently it was a suicide by hanging of all things. The officials called it hanging, but then his relatives and friends say he had a problem with Ativan, a strictly-controlled drug designed to cut down anxiety but had side effects. In any case it's a terrible ...

Re: Celebrity RIP Thread

Shocked to hear. Icons back in those college days of 90s rock growing older, dying slowly. :facepalm:

Re: Computer Stupidities

The bulk of infections are in Russia, but then it's spilling out to other places. Critical services are hard-hit. I'm very careful for a very long time, but with this, it's time for me to buckle down and update. Crafty greedy bastards, I'm sure they're swimming in funny money right now, sons of bitc...

Re: Everything is Rockin'! [RML Thread 4]

Did the craziest thing yesterday: I wanted to try out this supposed "super-hot" Japanese-style umami fried chicken, and ordered one for lunch. By my standards this is the most expensive lunch I ever ordered, at around US$8, several times more than the daily fare I usually order at McD. San...

Re: News [NO POLITICS]

I'm not really sure I see an issue with Kotaku from the article to be honest. I think people talking about and sharing stuff like that about game dev is cool, despite the fact that it might be "common knowledge" to some. I rather see Kotaku as an example of, duh, "gaming journalism&q...

Re: Computer Stupidities

Witcher 3 runs just fine on W7, though? Truth is, W7 is far more lenient on games than W10; I can play games old and new. I'm considering about getting a Ryzen to complete my build but Microsoft wants to end W7 support for newer hardware. Duh, fortunately hardware manufacturers still make drivers f...

The former it's for keeps, no more cd-keys. The latter was indeed a buggy ride. Despite that the game was almost a decade old, ...

One of these days I may have to unfollow some people off from my Facebook page, specifically people who are too successful or have much what I really seek for (honestly I really LOVE to have a NORMAL LIFE -- a relationship, a job, a family, a home of my own -- just like anyone else at the age of 40)...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Went to the cineplex, asked friends online what I should watch. They mostly asked for Logan and Power Rangers...

Watched Kong instead, partly because I am a sucker now for 60's rock music.

Funny to find Loki and Nick Fury on the same page. :lol:

Re: Computer Stupidities

Oh, wow. Hella way to sell an operating system that not everyone likes. I don't like Win10 because it gimps VRAM for older games to 4gb, asides from privacy concerns and forced updates. https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/03/microsoft-is-getting-ready-to-block-windows-updates-for-old...
