      This is kind of the equivalent of celebrities saying how hard staying home is while they reside in a multimillion-dollar mansion.

    Nat 1: An ICU bed appears and you fall unconscious onto it.  Time for death saving throws!

    2-5: You fall ill.  Take 20 poison damage.

    6-15: The isolation gets to you.  Take 20 psychic damage.

    16-19:  You are unharmed, but your satchel isn't.  Lose 20 gold.

    Nat 20: You lucky bastard!  Nothing happens to you.

  6. Happy New Year, LTT Forum!

     

    I've been lurking from a hidey-hole for a while; life's needs took over a ton of my time.  The rest was eaten by Breath of the Wild, which I can say is an incredible masterpiece of a game!  I left behind some side quests in the end but...meh.  Game took like 100+ hours to complete as it was.

     

    Some notes:

    • @Eschew is cute. 🧡
    • In my six years of being a PC enthusiast, I have not seen a worse time to build a PC than right now.  Holy shit!
    • What a hot mess Cyberpunk was; I'm glad I didn't get on the hype train!  I feel bad for the devs because it's clear that their managers let themselves get gangbanged by the more impatient, obsessive hype-sters.  Sad!
    • 2020 sucked.  Even more so if, in the context of your life, time is not your friend.  I look forward to the day when the vaccine is widespread, most of the restrictions are lifted, and the torment is mostly over.
  7. This is disgusting, and similar to what MSI was caught doing earlier this year.  Hope they get a ton of blowback for this.

     

    I repeat, I'm going all-AMD in 2021.  Nvidia is getting too comfy, and Intel needs to get their shit together.

      If I upgrade my GPU, I'll probably still go for Nvidia because of the software features and support. But yeah, this is really weird

  8. Facts!  Even if these AirPods Max headphones are good, there will be better options in the $500 range, maybe even below that!

      That said, I am not expecting them to even blow away the $180 AKG K371 BT.

      But if someone wants to pay $370 more for ANC and ecosystem comforts... they will and sound isn't going to stop them.

      Just look at how many people buy the non-sealing AirPods. 99% of the market doesn't give a crap about sound and they don't know any better.

      A lifestyle brand putting lifestyle first is.... good business.

  10. I get the gripes a lot of people have with this, but child celebrities have existed for a very long time and can have good lives and at least okay childhoods. Unless the parents are forcing this on him, he probably sees this as fun! I honestly wish the best for this kid regardless; he's already inspirational, like it or not! You could say this about any sport. Many athletes have gone from rags to riches through sports. Olympians and other pros alike. And most great athletes start very young (Michael Jordan) with exceptions (Dennis Rodman). *eye roll* Those are liability-m

      The thing is, these people usually won't accept any evidence presented, they'll always have an excuse to dismiss what you present them, but somehow Aunt Jane on Facebook is 100% right despite not presenting any proof or evidence.

       

      I personally stopped (for the most part) interacting with these people, they pretty much all suffer from the Dunning–Kruger effect and will come out of a discussion convinced they totally "owned" you, despite not making any sense and being oblivious to how wrong they are.

      @wkdpaul The person I'm speaking of is mainly just gullible, as many who were sheltered and abused as kids are.  So in that way it's just tragic.  Doesn't make it less frustrating to deal with, though.

       

      The Internet can spread conspiracy theories just as easily as anything else.  At its foundation, it's just a communication tool, so this phenomenon isn't hard to rationalize on the tech side.

       

      Mutual respect is all I can offer to her in real life, though.  If she turns into "Jane" and stops respecting my stance, which I'm beginning to worry about, then I'm done.  It would hurt, but I have other friends.  Healthy relationships are a two-way street.

  13. Holy shit! Didn't know it was that big a disparity lol! But it makes sense at the same time. Intel is selling things mostly based on reputation, not better real-world performance, pricing, thermals or efficiency. Now, they are only preferred for specific use cases (MATLAB, Adobe Premier, maybe a few games) and Ryzen 5000 might take some of those away, too.
  14. My number was 96, and you had the closest guess. Which is funny because you were the first to guess! Congratulations! Sending you the gift link/code.

  17. Bad news: The Steam Fall Sale compelled me to buy Dirt Rally 2.0...a game I forgot I already bought on Humble Bundle.

     

    Good news: I bought the Game of the Year edition on Steam, which includes a metric fuck ton of DLC that, when bought separately, is worth WAY more than the $13 I paid on Steam, even on sale!  The Humble Bundle purchase included none of this extra content.

     

    Good news resulting from the good news: GIVEAWAY TIME!!!

  19. Although optimization and app support appears to be in beta right now, I think Apple hit a grand slam with the M1 and M1X. What a kickass piece of ARM silicon!
