      For what reason? There's no difference between 1 person hitting 2TB and 10 people hitting 2TB. You're still necked by your upper bandwidth.

      Welcome to the club. 


      @ARikozuM They did it because they could. Comcast has had caps for at least a decade. The North East of the US was kinda of exemption due to FIOS. But I guess Comcast figures FUCK IT. Just cap every one. They had suspended the caps during the summer, and when they started enforcing them again we went from 1 TB to 1.2 TB of data. So we got a bit more data to use each month. To be honest its just a cash grab. Because if you lease their gateway you can pay $25 a month for the equipment as well as unlimited data. If you own you own modem you pay $30 extra for unlimited data.

      imagine paying $120 for 150/10Mbps. couldn't be me...


      fuck comcast tho


  3. Honestly. It's far more important now than it was, say, 30 years ago, when a lot of these officials were elected.
  4. So far it's been mildly annoying. Certainly not as bad as Speed Silvers, which were awful. I just wanted a clickbar switch that's not a Box to avoid risking damaging my GMK caps and my preferred switch is still sold out on NovelKeys.
  5. the roaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad that we waaaaaaaaaaaaalk is lost in the floooooooooooodddddddddd

    here proud angels bathe in their waaaages of blooood

    at this, the world's end, do we cast off tomorrrRROW

  6. Boy my arm sure is fucky lately

  7. Nintendo of America doing the American thing where they act like America is the only country that exists.
  8. So, I've been giving speed switches a try again. This time, Kailh Speed Bronzes. I'm not a big fan of how misaligned the clickbar and actuation point are. I feel it should actuate at 1.2mm, but at least there's some tactile feedback through the clickbar. I'll still give them a fair shake and see if I can train myself to rest my fingers on them without triggering them, but if not I guess I'll just go back to NK Sherbets when NovelKeys restocks those.
  9. Were the ray tracing tests done with the press or public driver? Because I've heard that ray tracing isn't fully enabled in the press driver, or something along those lines. Perhaps when the RX 6900 XT review rolls around we can get some fully enabled ray tracing tests with the RX 6000 series.
  10. Been playing through Horizon Zero Dawn's story more and while it's obvious this isn't the kind of game Guerrilla usually makes (every game they made before HZD was a shooter), I'm really enjoying it.

  11. Hot take: 65% is the best keyboard form factor for gaming. 75% if you need the F key row.

      I can't, I'm not left handed. 


      I don't really need a TKL though. Unlike tiny people, I have broad shoulders and they actually feel very uncomfortable for me to use.

      Meanwhile I need to downsize my keyboard because otherwise I'll need another boutta surgery on my arm.

      Thank you for reminding me that I need to sell my vortex keeb 

  12. Ray tracing is cool and all but when is steve tracing becoming a thing?

  13. "narrow enter key" Linus, that's an ISO enter key... on an ANSI board for some reason. Anyway, my answer is yeah you can. I've done it before a few times.

    While Betteridge's Law of Headlines states that this should be answered with "no", the answer in this case is "yes". I've played Dusk with a $40 Bluetooth keyboard before, to surprisingly good results.
