    Official What did YOU just buy?

    Not in nearly a decade. I had one that was powered by AA batteries and one of them exploded and shorted it out. I went back to a wired mouse and haven't gone back. I don't usually replace peripherals that are fully functional, so I'll probably end up using my current mouse for a while.

    I get it. Just fyi, the software can be used without registering, but you need to edit a hidden xml to bypass the log-in screen. You can probably google it if that is an issue.

    I couldn't really get into it at first, but it really started drawing me in around episode 5. I'm probably going to rewatch the early episodes before the finale. I will probably appreciate them more after seeing where they were going with everything.

    Official What did YOU just buy?

    Have you ever used any Razer gear before? I have a Razer mouse. The quality is good, but I'm not really a fan of the way they try to force you to register an account to use their software so you can get full functionality from the device.

    Political Chat. What did Trump tweet today?

    You made a statement about what you thought the threshold for impeachment should be and I asked how you came to that conclusion. You also used the phrase if Trump threatened to withhold aid when it has been established that Trump personally ordered a hold on aid for Ukraine before the phone...

    Political Chat. What did Trump tweet today?

    Trump personally placed a hold on military aid for Ukraine the week before making this call. The president of Ukraine brought up the military aid and asked about buying Javelins. Trump directly took the conversation to Biden from there. I don't understand why you would need an explicit if...

    3.7 Home Theater / Computer / Electronics Thread

    Direct play is definitely the way to go if your hardware supports it. I don't know if you've seen the CPU transcoding requirements, but you need some seriously high end hardware to transcode above 720p. The first time I tried to build a NAS I went with open media vault on an old computer...

    What are you doing on the server side? I'm trying to finish up a dedicated file server I've been building.

    I was a little unsure at first, but I figured it out once I realized that the character was supposed to be in her mid to late 20s.

    Official Video Game thread...

    It does look like a good console, but none of the games that have been released so far really made me feel like I had to run out and get one the way this announcement has. I'm struggling to think of a game that has as much nostalgic value as Link's Awakening.

    Political Chat. What did Trump tweet today?

    The year 2030 wasn't picked out of a hat. Last year, the UN panel on climate change said that greenhouse gas emissions need to be greatly reduced by 2030 in order to limit the impact of climate change. U.N. Warns We Are Nowhere Close to Averting a Climate Crisis Conservative hot-takes and...
