Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

Job interview today didn't happen. There was a problem relating to the fact that Skype is not and doesn't function with Skype for Business. Not a big problem just call up and change it to a over the phone interview right? After all I gave myself a half hour to work out the bugs before the interview...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

My account is basically a retirement account so it's pretty much all very stable slowly growing investments, and in the past 4 months the total value of the portfolio has increased more than in the previous 2 years. Yeah I'm a Boglehead and my stuff looks the same, but it's deceiving. My returns si...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

If working from home becomes permanent (and there is no compelling reason for it not to)... Allow me to springboard off this, while some industries might in fact stay with working from home (or increase it's incidence rate), there is in fact some evidence coming out that this pandemic is decreasing...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

Looking for an old Electric Vehicle thread I found this. I found gas for $1.99 today, but OPEC did in fact cut oil production. Totally didn't see Covid coming. :lol: ETA:Sun Jan 25, 2015 2:33 pm Gas is unlikely to stay this low long enough for that to happen. The low price will drive up demand and ...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

I prefer the smaller side of things.

I remember playing WoW and being able to get 4 people consistently (before their matchmaking thing) and then trying to move heaven and earth for hours trying to pull in a 5th.

I do like how more modern games scale to the number of people in them.

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

Did you use any particular software to make all that, or did you just do it manually? Very cool. I forgot about these posts. Manual... just a quick google image search. I did have to use the imagesize:100x100 search term since they got rid of the tool that lets you specify the pic size in a drop do...

Re: Free Games and Stuff

I didn't care for Injustice. I don't know if it's a low quality game or that fighting games are not my thing.

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

I'll get it if the VR is convincing and/or the gameplay is as deep as XvT. Of course I have no hope that they would dare make a AAA-budgeted, Star Wars-licensed game as rich as the Star Wars flight simulators from 25 years ago (which could be run on a modern refrigerator) because they weren't easil...
