Oh man stuff like that is fun. Expensive fun. 

I've seen a few frame stress test videos:

I think it has the base of a great game - but yeah it does need an expansion or two to really find its feet.

The aliens are fun, but a bit too static from what I've seen so far. When I'm attempting to be peaceful with the aliens and they'll still bug the crap out of me, it's odd. In the end it's just a modified agression cooldown timer.

I'm going to attempt a domination game pretty soon (as the only option) and see how that impacts AI competitiveness. 

If you went to the Civ Beyond Earth page on Game Abyss and started the discussion from there it would have auto linked :p

Hey guys. Sorry about that. Pagination wasn't working 100%. and my not working 100% I mean it was working 0% lol. Should be fixed, and HOPEFULLY the message that this sends to you, takes you directly to the second page

I LOVE that video

My little guy and I always watch the garbage trucks and street sweepers going by. I'd love to ride in something like that once. I know it's different when it's a job :p

Currently if I'm going to have a cup of joe, it's going to be done one of three ways - listed below starting with most often used.

  1. Keurig. It's super easy and there's a variety
  2. Aeropress. For when I want to spend a little extra time making amazing coffee
  3. French Press. For groups, or for a long day. I still need to perfect my French Press process.

So - what about you?

Definitely Once again, hooray for basic functionality

Editing and deleting posts should now be linked to on the actual posts

As Deridder pointed out - the functionality existed, so really all I had to do was add the buttons and do security checks

The robotics book is great. There's a store that sells a kit of things that you need for the book as well, which is a GREAT way to inexpensively start to mess with things.

Lonewolf - I'll take a better pic of my keyboard/mouse setup. It's been great for my wrists and arms.

Torino started this, and I figured I would post a couple of pictures. 

This is my main work desk Most of the servers that I work on are remote, and so it's pretty much just a normal computer setup, though nice and messy. In this picture I am just switching from my old desktop to using a surface pro 3 for most of my work. That way whether I'm at home or on the go, I can be working from the same computer.

 

This is my work environment at my in-laws place :p Tablet/laptop, mouse, and some coffee. Always coffee

Not nearly as exciting as large machinery, but I certainly enjoy it.

That one sounds like fun

I think there is an old ant simulator out there somewhere. Something like that would be fun too - being part of a larger colony.

My advice, don't avoid it. Just watch it. I would bet everyone else will have watched it too. It's a good anime, and one to not miss out on.

Posted In: Sub Par Sci Fi

This show is a perfect example of taking a nice sci fi idea, and just butchering it. I've been quite tired, recently, of sci fi shows that feel like they only get 50% of the way there.
