  1. Mafia III is awesome. Some bugs here and there on PC but running fine on my old rig (2500K @ 4.0GHz and GTX 770) at good settings. Gunplay is fantastic. Character development too. If you like sandbox GTA style... go for it!

     

  2. Lost a member of the (feline) family this evening. RIP Skitz. 14 years old, renal failure. So sudden. Hug your pets.

      <3 And if you have a 10+ year old cat who drinks a lot? Go get blood work done. It's SUPER common in cats and can be helped.

      I will hug the kitty when I get home. And he will squeak.

  3. Every time I see a new WoW expac, I always get a nostalgic pull to get back into it. And then realize that my life won't let me and I'm probably better off without it anyway. Right guys. Right?!

      You still play WoW?!

       

      Come to Montréal. Maybe I'll come back to WoW, and bring Urchin.

  4. Sweet basil, purple leaf basil, cilantro, spearmint, chocolate mint, chives, garlic chives, oregano, thyme, lemon thyme, mini red bell pepper, sweet 100 cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, mini eggplant, rosemary, Lebanese cucumber, swiss chard, stevia, and lavender. Our garden is pretty damn complete! Now to make sure it all stays alive, lol.

      I think it's still for general sale in Quebec so spray malathion if you can get your hands on it.

    3. Stasis

      Stasis

      Oooh, thanks for the tip. I'll check that out. I know Quebec tends to be slower in banning products that are "unsafe" which is occasionally useful but also kind of concerning lol.

      Wait wait wait, I was wrong. Spray 1part soap, 40 parts water, 9 parts alcohol. Rinse it (spray water) and spray the soap mix again and rinse. I was wrong, you can't get sestemic sprays in canada without a license and can't harvest for 2 weeks after spraying with a serious chemical. The soap mix is what my family uses for our (disgustingly large) vegetable garden.

  5. Bought Mass Effect CE Art books for game 1 & 2 on eBay because I felt wrong for not owning them. Missing ME 1, which isn't hardcover so less important but still. #diehardfan

      I actually do! Bought it a few months back and was just waiting to basement office relocation before hanging some up!

  6. Didn't prepare lawn properly in fall, still totally brown. So annoying. So much work to do, planter boxes, paver stones and pea gravel patio, outdoor furniture. Fun, but so time consuming. I kinda miss not having a lawn lol.

      Make sure it is a tree that doesn't drop a lot of trash.  My neighbors have a river birch that overhangs my roof, drops pollen cones that look like dead worms, clogs my gutters even with the gutter screens and drops small branches all the time.  It is the #1 tree that I am allergic to.  I want that tree dead.

      I have a very nice weeping cherry, it does not get tall, but the blooms do not last long enough.  The blooms on the crabapples that are in the neighborhood last much longer and the tree is a good size.  If I was to plant another tree it would be a crabapple.

      I should have checked this post before now! We did buy our tree today, Japanese Lilac (Syringa reticulata). I saw the Dolgo crabapple Tiny, because it looks similar when in flower. We may get one for our backyard actually, after discussing with a super nice employee who guided us on this tree planting adventure (omg we knew so little). Delivery is Saturday. I'll post pics after we put it in! Lilah your advice is spot on and we made that clear when asking, didn't want anything dropping over driveways etc. and certainly no sap or cones etc. So lilac up front and perhaps the crabapple in the yard.

      Thanks guys! =)

  7. This gif is basically how I see Ashin reacting to SO much of what I've said and done over the years. It's perfect. Every time I see it I laugh because of this. U0Nb.gif

  9. Now I know. Holy shit. Finally decided to get some "real" headphones instead of another gamer set. First song Nina Simone's I Put a Spell On You. Mind blown. I didn't realize how much I was missing. Sold!

      Stasis, you're tempting me to buy more things. This is not good for me...

      Buy now, process later. It's my way of doing things. Damn this low rate credit card! But srsly I must control also, lol.

      My Logi G35's finally kicked it. I needed to re-up, so I went a little bigger. I wouldn't have otherwise. Not yet.

  10. There's no going back to a standard TN after using an IPS. Good thing they're finally affordable and accessible in decent resolutions!

  11. What's "Heroes of The Storm", and why did I get invited to a technical alpha of it? Is this spam? I don't remember anything about this, nor applying for it.

      Alright, I'll try to give it some time this weekend. I really wondered if it was a phishing attempt or similar. My Blizz account was hijacked in the past.

  12. No internet at new house for a while? Fantastic! ISP sending out a crew to update the fiber lines in the area. It'll be awesome when it's done but in the meantime... ugh. LTE tethering =/

    1. Sunny

      Sunny

      ive tried to play mmo's on a tethered 3g connection before. Its doable if u are just crafting or socializing, but 900ms ping hurts

    2. Inedit

      I feel your pain. I've been without phone/internet/TV since my move. Fingers crossed I get it tmrw.

    3. Stasis

      Stasis

      You moved too?!

      I'm more worried about bandwidth than ping tbh. I don't even MMO or really play anything online, but I won't be able to stream hockey games or download my pre-ordered Inquisition =(

  13. New BSG film incoming with a new take on the story. Whatever it is, yes pls. Moar BSG. Moar Sci-Fi.

      BSG makes me fall asleep. If you let spiders crawl on me while I'm sleeping, you are going to have problems. :p

  14. Jumping spider just took down a fruit fly mid air in my kitchen. I HATE fruit flies. I love jumping spiders. Nature is awesome.

      Lots of undeveloped nature around here and it's getting colder out = spiders coming in. Fruit flies... well, bananas out I guess. I dunno really, everything we have is fresh.

      Lol. I think I'm gonna move on from ants and raise jumpers! I've been reading up on it. We have some awesome local species apparently. I just need to find a young one in the Spring!

  15. Nexus player sold out in hours... I had it in cart and then went to get dinner, came back and gone. Fuck. At least I managed to get a Nexus 9 pre-ordered. Finally ending this Apple experiment. Woo!

    1. Ashin

      Ashin

      idk what that is

      New Google devices. Nexus player is like an Android based Roku, Nexus 9 is their new tablet.

    3. Stasis

      Stasis

      False alarm, player is missing an FCC cert and was pulled from store. Hopefully it's back on soon. Imagine a roku that can also perfectly emulate older consoles so you can get your jrpg on? Has a pretty cool controller available too, like an xbox really. Works for Plex and all that. So want.

  16. House ready in a month. Can't wait to experience it, and for this to be over. So many back and forths with contractor. Designing a kitchen is literally the most complex thing I've ever experienced.

      Thanks! I am ready to tackle all of these things! I thinks. Our friends bought the house next to us, so well get to share in tool purchasing duties at first. That'll come in handy! Like we're getting a snowblower and he's getting a lawn mower, lol.

      I LOVE that guy!

  19. Double my net speed with unlimited bandwidth for the same rate? Why yes, Videotron, I will take that. 60mbps for $60! I love my ISP.

      those last 4 words are something you would never expect to hear from anyone, ever.

      I know Luc. It's astonishing but true. I've been a customer for 8 years now, and I feel so very lucky lol. US ISP's sound like horror stories to me. We get awesome reliable service, great customer care, good pricing, no throttling, etc.

  20. There's a movie called Thunderpants that's about a boy with two stomachs who farts a lot. I NEED to see this. The cover is fantastic.

      At first it sounded like a Troma film, but then I looked it up on IMDB and it is an actual kids' comedy from Britain.

      Yeah, you really don't. :p

      Probably one of the best imdb user reviews ever written, too. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0283054/board/nest/24926456?ref_=tt_bd_1

  21. OK Wildstar and Watch Dogs, you've forced my hand. I wanted to wait for a full build, but 770 inc. Now debating if I do a duress install on a new SSD or not. Sigh.

    1. Stasis

      I guess duress is appropriate, Apple, but I did mean "fresh".

      Was just about to ask!

  22. Condo sold! Interestingly it's the couple who visited on day 3 who finally bought it, it's just taken them this long to get everything settled. House will be ready in November so we have to rent until then, but it's so worth it. They stole all our appliances though, lol.

      Thanks! So happy it's finally over. There was a lot of back and forth. I know I'm old when the thing I'm most excited about is getting to design our kitchen completely, and I barely even cook! Having to move twice in the span of 5 months is gonna suck a little though.

    4. Stasis

      Stasis

      And yes, new appliances have already been reserved. Didn't wanna have to get them, but still happy about it. Steam dryer. Mmmmmm.

  23. Shaving my beard completely is seriously one of the worst decisions I've ever made, and I've made some pretty terrible ones. I'm launching operation regrowth immediately. This is never happening again. I'm sorry, beard.

      If Platy ever shaved his goatee, I wouldn't recognize him ^^

  24. Rented out a log cabin for a weekend this Summer with some friends. To get there requires an ATV with a trailer up to the lake, and then we cross via canoe to get to the cabin. Private lake. Super remote! I need to get my lumberjack on. Inedit, help w- style pls.

      I know, I'm kinda nervous/excited. I'm gonna bring an axe. I hope no one turns on me. I feel like I need flannel, but it's in July. Sleeveless flannel? I'll keep my beard going.

  25. Can you only raise the difficulty beyond hard after having completed Act V? Crusader hasn't even come close to dying at this difficulty level. Fun ride, but it's a little too easy atm (level 42).

    3. Stasis

      I've used maybe 10 on hard, lol. But it says I need to create a new game? Raise difficulty greyed out after hard. I've been on hard since maybe level 10 when I realized I could switch. Should I have started on hard?

    4. Stasis

      Stasis

      Like can you only raise it one level once the game has started maybe? Damn.
