    I know rocket league was planning on moving to the epic game store and removing the option to buy the game from steam, but people who already bought the game from steam can continue to play it there and get new updates. Does this affect it?

    Well i disagree with you, and in fact many people disagree with you that's why governments are now pushing the "Right to repair" law everywhere, to force manufacturers provide information about repairs - you can see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronics_right_to_repair.  and https://www.wired.com/story/right-to-repair-security-experts-california/ and https://theecologist.org/2019/jan/21/right-repair-enshrined-eu-law

    Aside from preaching the gospel of the Sugo SG13B, the H200's layout is fine for its size. I've built in the Fractal Design Define Nano S which is similar, but the only thing is that these are more "baby-ATX" cases than they are "Mini-ITX" so if you were considering really minute form factor then the shoebox size of the Sugo might appeal to you.

    You do not know what is going on here. There is a fine if you cross the street where it's prohibited BUT if you do this in front of a police car they won't stop you! They do not care! If you speak on phone while driving there is fine for it too, but still you CAN talk on phone while driving and if policeman sees you they won't care! They do not give a shit about us! 2 Weeks ago one 17 year old girl who does not even have driving licence ran into public road near lake and killed 1.5 year old little girl. They gave her JUST 3 year sentence. But this week there was a leak about one politicians private life video and 17 teenagers are arrested because they saw this video and did not report it in police. They are facing 4-8 years in prison because they JUST saw the video. Sadly in Georgia after 2012 year came russian people in government russian billionaire bidzina ivanishvili and they do everything to destroy our country. It's 7 years already everything is stopped here. No more development. Our currency which was 1.7 with USD now is at 2.73 with USD. They took previous presidents (Mikheil saakashvili) citizenship and 7 years already they blame him, but in reality they do not even make anything good for us.
    This is real Georgia! Not what it looks like from USA or from other countries. Here average salay is 400-600 GEL about 150$-225$ Veterans are payed 67$ and after 65 year peoples pansion is 65$!

    Utili-kilts have been around for quite a while and regular kilts have been around for centuries. Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans wore what were essentially skirts and shifts. The ancient Irish and Scots wore leines (lay-na), which were essentially shifts.
     
    Btw, do you know why kilts are called kilts? Because if you told a Scotsman he was wearing a skirt, you got kilt.

    Tarzan reacted to Senzelian in Gaming RIG - First build   
    1, The GPU is fine. Maybe you could get a R9 280 instead which should be around the same price range and perform a bit better.
    OC = overclocked
    TF = twin frozr (cooler design named by MSI)
    N760 = GTX 760
    2GD5 = 2 GB of GDDR5 memory
     
    2. You probably don't need a sound card. You should listen to the build in sound card first anyway. If it really sounds that bad, which I don't think it will, you can still add a sound card or an DAC/AMP.

    Tarzan reacted to dalekphalm in First Cars   
    For reference:
     
    My first car was "free" (Dad gave it to me at no cost), but it was dead, and needed an engine replacement. The deal was, I got the car for free if I paid to have it fixed. Total cost: $1800 CAD. The car was a 1999 Buick Regal (This was back in like 2010), and it had over 250,000 KM on it. The engine crapped out again, and was replaced a second time for another cost of $1500 CAD or so. I ended up selling the car for scrap around 2013 or so.
     
    My second car is my current car: 2014 VW Jetta (purchased brand new) - cost was in the neighbourhood of $27,000 CAD - it currently has about 95,000 KM on it (had 45 KM when I pulled it off the lot).
     
    Now, how much you spend on your first car largely depends on:
    1. Your income (specifically disposable income)
    2. Your budget (how much can you put towards a car)
    3. Your needs (what is the car for? Work? School? Fun? etc)
     
    For your first car, I would avoid buying new. I would also avoid buying fancy. Don't go out and get a sports car, etc. I'd suggest a practical, mid-size or compact 4-door sedan. Get it from a company with a good reputation, like Toyota, Honda, VW, even Subaru, etc. Get one that is between 6-8 years old, if you can afford. Try to find one with lower KM - under 200,000 KM for sure. Under 150,000 KM preferred. If you can find a good deal under 100,000 KM, that's ideal.
     
    I assume you don't get snow in the winter? If you do, make sure to buy actual real Winter Tires (a good investment is a second set of Rims for them as well) - if you don't get snow, then don't worry about winter tires.
     
    When choosing what models to consider:
    1. check fuel efficiency (L/100KM (lower is better) or MPG (higher is better) - find a car with better efficiency - over 24 MPG or under 10L/100KM combined HW + City driving)
    2. Price for regular service (Oil + Filter change - full inspection - don't just get an oil change without an inspection - I also recommend following the manufacturers maintenance guide)
    3. Cost of common parts (brake pads, rotors, spark plugs, headlights, etc)
    4. Storage capacity/interior room (How much space do you need? How many passengers? How much luggage or other items?)
    5. Type of vehicle (Hatchback vs trunk? SUV/Truck vs Car?) - Try to keep this practical. If you don't need a truck or SUV, don't get one. A Hatch or Sedan will be much cheaper to fuel and maintain
    6. Other considerations you might have (eg: necessity of AWD/4x4, etc)
    7. "Luxury" features (Automatic transmission, AC, heated seats/steering wheel, Bluetooth, hands free calling, power windows, etc)

    Tarzan reacted to Techicolors in Apple faces class action lawsuit over failing Macbook keyboards   
    A class action lawsuit has been filed recently over an allegedly flawed butterfly-mechanism keyboards of the Macbook models 2016-7. The lawsuit claimed that Apple knew about the defects before or during the product launch of the 2015 Macbook, which debuted the butterfly design. Such repairs out-of-warranty could cost around $700, and Macbook-less for quite a while

    Some of the plaintiffs involved in the case
     
    Apple has attempted to remedy the issue with steps using compressed air to clean the switches underneath the keyboard. But judging from the 40% helpfulness score of the method, it appears it hasn't helped just everybody 
     
    The suit seeks 
     
    There is also an active petition with more than 17,000 signatures calling out Apple to either remedy or replace defective units, in addition to choice of reimbursement https://9to5mac.com/2018/05/03/macbook-pro-keyboard-petition/
     
    As for my opinion on the matter, i have the 2017 MBP. and yes the keyboard is not so great. I've already had one of the keys act weird and non-responsive and while some compressed air did help, i shouldn't have to go to such lengths to do that. not with a machine that is this expensive. Apple got too obsessive with thinness with this machine. while it looks great aesthetically, functionally it can definitely be better. Looking forward, Apple needs to address this with the upcoming 2018 lineup (and of course with the past models as well)

    I'll recommend mint as well. I've set it up for my parents years ago, and it's still going without issue.
     
    It's not necessarily mint you want for the layout, it's the Cinnamon desktop that mint uses. You can have that in Debian as well.
     
    Please note: mint uses the Debian testing branch, so does Ubuntu. If you want the stable branch there's the Linux Mint Debian edition or Debian with the Cinnamon desktop.
