Discovered the power of "powercfg -requests" and am both pleased with the utility and the pun I just made.

@jk See also "whiz" or "whiz kid" when describing anyone who can operate a computer.

Now I'm really curious if it was used in the centre page spread (IN COLOUR!!!) we got in The S*n because my (ex) wife and I got married in an ~international romance~ after meeting on a MUD.

Don't worry though, I haven't joined the normals - I'm only researching drywall anchors because I need to mount my Vive Lighthouses in what would be a normal person's dining room.

I've been radio silent for a few weeks now because work, holidays, and buying a house.

Now I'm watching YouTube videos comparing drywall anchors. Home ownership!

@fasterthanlime Hurrah for iLok :|

Back in the day I was weirdly proud when X-Force released some of my plugins. Probably wouldn't have been as amused if it wasn't for the fact they were actually free.

@revenant This was me when someone who worked on that Disney dinosaur CG movie (was it called.. Dinosaur?) said they were using my (crappy) Renderman .rib file tool, probably around the same age.

@jk that reminds me I bought an RP255 for my ex years ago, I wonder if my son still has it/remembers he has it..

@Gargron If you've never been introduced to A Christmas Story, your world is about to change. It's the best American pop-culture tradition I discovered since moving here two decades ago.

@revenant it was big on Twitter, but the number of posts complaining about posting about it outnumbered the number of posts posting about it.

The people telling you to vote are annoying but the people who don't want you to vote are way worse, trust me

@carter "Betrayed".

Hello, I would like one Fucking Break. Super-size it, please.

With all the Diablo wankery I missed this: Sunset Overdrive (about the only reason I ever had for even contemplating buying an Xbox One) looks to be getting a PC release. Nice!

labor411.org has a handy "Election Day Edibles" PDF and it's not what I was expecting.

At all.

I almost called in to work because the alarm clock said 5:30 and I thought "fuck it, I'm going to be late anyway".

Thank you, computers and time servers. For some reason by brain thinks the clock change always happens in September.

The Diablo Immortal discourse is fantastic

The Gamers are mad, the games media that also spent years treating mobile like a second-guess citizen now has to struggle with either defending a mobile game or bashing gamers because they helped create this monster.

and it's hilarious

I also just saw that Gal-Metal got its English release but seeing as I heard nothing about it releasing I'm assuming it's.. not very good?

Taiko no Tatsujin Drum n Fun worth it just for the amount of laughter we just had playing Red Light Green Light.

Need drumcons though. Anyone know if/when they'll be easier to buy in the US?

Current status: watching a trashy anime about a trashy F2P game I don't play so I can get background info for the crossover event in the trashy F2P game I do play.
