  1. I sometimes do miss PSO ep1&2.

    By what I mean, back on that game, you had what was call Ships (basically the servers).  You had the ones for the Americas, Japan, and Europe.  What was nice, you could switch anytime among them with the same character.  Now mind you, this back during the mix era of dail-up and cable modems.  I had dail-up but enjoy the ability to still play with folks across the ocean.

     

    Or, in the case I would do, chill in the Ship lobbies and BS with some Irish chaps and Germans.  I still think I got screenshots somewhere of the nutty stuff we would do with the character actions and custom emojis one can make (yes, that game allow making custom images which folks got very creative with and you could save any you saw and like to use yourself in the game).  Compare to todays games, sure not fancy, but back then that stuff was mind blowing.  Heck, just playing with folks across the globe was mind blowing (this before Youtube, MySpace, Twitter, etc.).

     

    Another interesting bit about that game was the word system.  What that you may ask?  Pre-defined expression one can select while gaming.  These would be auto translated if say someone was from Japan, Spanish, German, and English.  Which was great if ya where the type to hang out and run time challenge map runs over in the very pack area of one Japan Ship.

     

    Also, was the game that taught me how to type on a keyboard while holding a controller at the same time.  Here the kicker, I played on a Gamecube.  Yes, there is a keyboard adapter for the Gamecube.

     

    Behold.  And yeah, came in useful for Action Replay.

  2. Now I have my fish pond in this game.

    Onwards of fishing all the darn fish.

      Each region has their own special fish that spawns every 3 friggin days

       

      If you have Baal, you'll want the weapon from the inazuma NPC, which needs inazuma's special fish, which spawns at the most annoying place possible

      I'm aware of the respawn rate.

      Thankfully I ain't that interested in the wep nor in rush for it.  I just want fish for my pond.  xD

  3. For wallets, there many different ones. Along with terms such as hot and cold wallet. With places like Coinbase, Binance, Phemex, etc. Those are exchanges and your wallet there is term as "hot". Quick to do swaps, trades, etc. dependent on a coin's network. Least secure as well; highly advise, invest into physical security keys like a Yuibkey, etc. The more quality exchanges should give an option to hook this up to the account. Or, at least some give the option to use authenticators instead of just solely relying on SMS 2FA. Also, note, the stated exchanges above are ref
  4. Think I can have my GPU in the main rig go at night. Right now the heat in Florida been pretty toasty.
  5. Finally got around to setup this little bugger.

    Also, yes I am starting to go down the rabbit hole of looking for APY gains.

      Yeah. If you would like to use the Yubikey with your phone then it either has to have NFC, be an iPhone (later than 5 of course) or have USB C. But you know you could just buy the 5 Nano and setup it up on your Computer and then just type in the Code on your Phone which the Yubico Authenticator app displays to you on the Computer if you don't need/want to use the login with Security Key feature should you happen to have an app on your phone with which you have that setup.

  6. Well, new fight with this B550 motherboard.  To get it to honor the PBO settings I put now.

     

    Ugh....either I need to turn off the PBO under Ai Tweaker to make it honor the PBO settings under the AMD Overclocking.  Darn...I'm to the point I miss the simple tuning I did on my 2500K.

      O lordy, went digging about this B550.  It got over three places that can control the PBO......

      Why the heck.....

      if its the Strix board you list on your profile, then its BIOS is likely very similar to my x570 Crosshair Hero.

      Most likely, digging around for more info on the settings.  Seems some choice tweaking is require on this board to get it to behave.

       

      I will probably find what causing the motherboard to not honor those settings in the one area.

    4. Ithanul

      Ithanul

      Ah, so updated to latest BIOS for the motherboard.  It is now using the values in the AMD Overclocking area.

       

      Saw one user on another forum mention that some of the older BIOS have bugs where this B550 will not use those settings.

       

      Hmmm, interesting, boost has a change a bit with this update.  Back to tweaking again.

  7. Yep, I luck out buying that off a chap in Tampa. Was a drive but worth at the time since a full deck out TX10 Caselab at the time cost a pretty penny, and this one came with extras for way less than buying the case new. I love it though, so easy to work in that case. Only major issue I have is all my PSUs require longer cables to the parts.
  8. Long you say? What ever do you mean? Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: A Wakening of the Trailblazer Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans But yeah, they do get some pretty long titles.
  9. 1) I ain't surprise. 2) Guess you miss out with folks buying fish tank cleaner to use as treatments? But yeah, as someone that takes a few kicks out of looking at LeopardsAteMyFace. There been well, quite a few of the taking horse med deal going.
  10. Since I rework and added more monitors, oh also big boi on the far right was refresh with a 5800X on a B550 motherboard. Moving the 1950X onto the other side and still need re-work my headless E5-2670V3 which typically hids under the desk.
  11. From my personal experience of owning several AMD and Intels, I never notice any being crash prone compare to each other. Same for the GPUs, the few time I get crashes out of those is me mucking around with overclocking the poor things. Only time anything would crash for me is when I am messing a bit with tweaks or get in one of my rare "I shall stress test 24/7 Prime Grid though dis piece of unfortunate hardware for a week or two". If asking about the newer chips, so far the 5800X I have is fine. A few odd issues on the build, but that came about from old displaypor
  12. Woooooooo, now my back shoulders burn a good bit along with my arms.

    This plus darn Synth Riders gives one hell of a warm up.

  13. I sometimes have the most stupid luck in these types of games.

    xD

      I took about a hiatus think around Jan or so for a few months (well, more like I'm now addicted to Beat Saber).

      Just came back with the new area drop finally.

  14. VR mod that I just became aware of:  GitHub - fholger/openvr_fsr: Add FidelityFX SuperResolution to SteamVR games

    The low down, this allows FSR to be used in steamvr games for the majority of GPUs.

     

    I'm so planning to try this out on beatsaber.

  15. Hmmmmmmm, dont' think it suppose to do that.
