    Hey look buddy, I'm an engineer. That means I solve problems, not problems like "What is beauty?" Because that would fall within the purview of your conundrums of philosophy. I solve practical problems

  1. I’d probably hide the code and PM it to someone who gives you the best reply in this thread or something, otherwise bots will probably grab it
  2. I don't have an answer to this as I am curious about this as well. I'm planning on putting a water block on it (probably Alphacool's as that's the only one I can find in stock and it's a reasonable price) so I'm mainly concerned about the pads on the back.
  3. Their twitter said it was all sold out ....they could be trying to thin the herd, but I'd be surprised.
  4. Man, that was tough on my iPhone (lttstore is blocked at work and it’s all I brought today). I finally got through and entered the 3070 queue at 9065 out of 9083. Based on comments a bit further up, it looks like they’re all sold out…why hasn’t it kicked me out of the queue? I’m at 4738 of 6110 right now and it’s still going down
  5. Oh man, I didn’t realize you could skip two questions; I thought skipping would cost a life.
  6. lttstore.com handled it like a champ. Other than getting stuck on "verifying", which was already noted, I didn't see any issues. Kudos to the team!
  7. This has been discussed pretty extensively in this thread. I'd suggest you read through those arguments. My comments on it are below, and a number of other (likely better) comments followed shortly thereafter.
  8. There was a segment around the 3/4 mark in yesterday's video. Though the video is still live, it looks like the segment with the information for the Verified Actual Gamer program was removed. In that segment they partially stated the links to go to (there was a code you had to understand and enter it as part of the URL).The links were posted earlier in this thread if you're curious, but I imagine they will be different next time and they currently just redirect you to a page that now reads: The current round is over, but it will happen again sometime in the future (yet undis
  9. It went live yesterday but they sold out of the stock they had in about 20 minutes. There will be additional stock sometime in the future, but few details have been announced; we know they are working with companies to get AMD products, presumably in addition to more Nvidia GPUs, but no details about when, what, or how exactly have been announced.
  10. I was only able to get 13 of the 15, but this should give you an idea: https://imgur.com/a/aLmLgLt The order of the questions changed but I think the questions themselves were the same. If you answered one incorrectly you lost a heart and got to try that question again (and you could lose another heart). When you lost all your hearts (3) you had to start over, with the questions re-randomized.
  11. That’s an extremely complex solution that I imagine would take a few months to get worked out. They already delayed it almost two weeks just trying to deal with the US tariff issues. I understand your upset but they were pretty clear that it would be in a normal LTT video (which are uploaded daily during the week, usually within about a 45 minute window) and there would be some sort of verification process. The only thing that was connected to the WAN show was that Linus commented during WAN show a few weeks ago that they were working on it and then updates in later WAN Shows. To m
  12. I have an old steam account but I honestly don't have that many hours in it, especially recently (Escape from Tarkov). I could see a scenario where someone doesn't actually have a steam history, if an account at all, but would still be considered a "gamer". I thought the quiz was great, even though I didn't know everything.
  13. You may get lucky, but I kinda doubt it. I had to give up and go back to work.
