Considering the assholery that Obsidian went through with New Vegas, I fully expect the higher ups to do everything in their power to fuck up TES6 if it means the end of the union, one way or another.

Honest question, can’t they just ask a chip foundry to make a new batch of the components, with even better miniaturization today? The original used 90nm processes, while the later versions of the console used 45nm, nowadays I think even if they opted for 20-25nm for cost saving, it’d still work fine.

It wasn’t, but it was added I think back in 2017 or 18, so at least 6 years being able to play multiplayer. Not that it really matters, aside from base building, the game doesn’t feel better when played with a buddy or a rando.

I’d personally put quotes in combat. Haven’t checked this latest update yet, but combat has always been a complete letdown, especially on foot. Your character starts putting down your weapon if you spend 1 second without firing. Once the animation starts, it will add considerable lag between your click/button press and it actually firing, which can make you miss shots very often during fights. Beating those orange drones never feel like any sort of challenge, just an annoying chore, especially when the repair ones start healing your target from very far away

Space combat is fine, but nothing to write home about. It’s all about dogfights among small craft, which is much better than doing anything on foot. Freighters and corvettes exist solely as stationary space rocks with maybe some cargo you can blow up to steal.

I wouldn’t say trading is even a secondary factor, much less important in any manner. It’s just a crutch for players that don’t accidentally stumble on an easy way to get boatloads of credits. Getting nanites can be a much bigger chore (I’ve set up a macro to turn in food in the Anomaly for nanites, since I was playing on permadeath, so mold->nanites wasn’t feasible), quicksilver is even worse. A good chunk of my playtime was setting up active indium mining farms and uploading them in the hopes someone else could use the money, back before the price was nerfed down hard.

it is the best game available at what it does

Only at the “infinite* planets, infinite* universe” thing and seamless space to planet transition. It’s not the best at ground combat, space combat, base building, ship building/customization, trading, crafting, storytelling, being a space pirate, space exploration, ground exploration… Of course, no other game offers all of these things in a single package, at least not that I’m aware of, but I can name some games that do some of those things better than NMS

I suspect a number of the larger ones are CD games with multimedia (video) experience. I mean, the original Command and Conquer used 2 CDs

Also, when the zombie apocalypse happens I’ll finally have time to rewatch Breaking Bad so I need an offline copy just in case.

Hope you already got solar panels or some other sort of electricity generator for that

I feel like I’m being wasteful, saving up a lot to probably never actually use. Can’t even seed some of the stuff because there are no torrents, so I have to resort to direct download sites way more often than I’d like, no less.

how likely is it that this particular content will still be available on Usenet/torrents in a few years?

I’ve had quite a bit of trouble finding the old Rome Total War some time ago, before the remaster was released. I’ve took the chance to get Medieval 2 as well. Both are sitting on my hard drive, guess they’re worth keeping for longer

I’ve done that with the Sharp X68000, I’ve downloaded the entire collection it has (~18GB). Do I know Japanese? No. Have I even checked if an emulator works with them? Also no. But it’s there

What if the moth is just their fursona?

I think all moths have some amount of fur, it’s easy to notice on the base of their wings, just “behind” (below?) the head. Some, like the rosy moth, are almost entirely covered in furs

Slitaz should need only ~60MB of RAM to run. Wireless networking probably won’t work out of the box, tho.

You can also try either MenuetOS or Kolibri, both are super tiny.

Depends on whether you’re folding them in neat squares or hanging them from hangers. The rolls are useful for putting them in luggage, they can be compressed better that way

Not exactly life hacks, but shortcuts that can help computer users:

  • holding CTRL and pressing the arrow keys will move the text cursor whole words, instead of 1 character at a time. Also works with Delete and Backspace
  • CTRL + Home will move the cursor to the start of the file, CTRL + End to the end of the file or textbox.
  • Windows 10 users can use the Xbox bar to record their screens. By default, the shortcut is Windows button + Alt + R

For anyone that uses the sink to wash dishes, have a net/grid to cover the hole. Once it’s full, just pick it up and dump the contents in your food trash.

You can use any type of soap to create barriers that ants will avoid. If you plug a hole with some soap (try a piece of soap bar that’s wet/soft), the ants won’t reopen it.

Downloaded a sketchy copy of some hard to find software some years ago. Once I tried to run it, I immediately noticed that the fans started spinning fast and everything was much slower. A quick ctrl + shift + esc and I saw that CPU usage was over 90% - Checking the detailed processes, I found the executable I tried to run and force-stopped it. It almost immediately restarted itself. Obviously, it already set up some other process to check for that process, so I started killing other processes with unfamiliar names until said process stopped restarting.

All good thus far, I went to check %appdata% and of course, there was a sketchy executable there that ran the keepalive process. Deleted it, searched all over for similarly named executables, everything seemed clear. Turned off the internet, rebooted the PC. Turned the internet back on and everything was still fine. I did notice later that I suffered some damage in the form of some files getting encrypted, which was why the CPU usage shot up in the first place - it was one of those ransomware type that, once finished, would no doubt sell the encryption password for a bitcoin deposit.

My other experience with malware was on Android. It’s amazing the lengths some FUCKING HARDWARE VENDORS will go in order to install adware on everything, right, Xiaomi, Samsung? Seriously, being forced to see an ad when you just want to use the fucking calculator? Fuck that shit.

Had something similar in an english class back in 6th grade (Brazil, 12yo students) - I knew some english words better than her and I wish I was making it up. She would say to class that checkers is chess game, call muffins doughnuts and vice versa (and say it like “dougonoot”). Of course, she always ignored my corrections and told me I was wrong whenever she could, like with checkers (she probably assumed that because “checkered” translates to “xadrez” despite the meaning there being for the texture/stamp, an adjective, rather than the game “xadrez”, a noun)

So, one bright day, she gives us an exam where the first 10 or so questions are just True or False according to the text. I read the text, I read the questions and notice that they don’t reference the text at all. I quietly ask her if the text is right, because several words being referenced in the question are nowhere in the text and she just dismisses me, “Just read and you’ll find the answers”, so I sit back slightly pissed and do what every other student did: randomly guess. Next week, we receive the exams back with our grades, another kid asks the teacher if she could show where in the text the answers for the T/F questions were. She starts reading and realizes her mistake. “Sorry class, I forgot the second half of the text” - which was a total lie because “second half” implies that at least something would have used the first half. I guess she learned how to revise her exams, because the others we had during the year were fine.

Anyway, if you ever wonder why most Brazilians know jack shit about English, it’s because the mandatory English classes are fucking shit. My conspiracy theory headcanon is that this is on purpose to sell extracurricular English courses

If you know how, teach her how to whistle real high using the fingers on top of the tongue. One way is by making an O with the thumb and the index finger, bending/rolling your tongue backwards a bit and pressing your fingers against it.

Then again, if you don’t have the JVM/JRE, Java won’t work, so first you need to write it in another language and in such a way that it works across a bunch of different ARM and x86 processors.

Depends on anime and country. English dubs just sound off in nearly everything to my non-native ears. Brazilian dubs, on the other hand, often hit a good spot, but that could be nostalgia and/or bias. Portuguese dubs, on the other hand… Dear lord, just no.

Gigantic? How big is Portia?

How do I make enough money to live?

Yes, I do have a full-time job, and I even enjoy it, but it doesn’t pay enough to survive in this hellscape of a world we live in. I lack the college degree required to get almost any decent-paying job (plus my last job hunt took MONTHS to get a lead), I don’t have the skills or originality to become an online content...

According to some sites, elevator maintenance pays 80k/year on average, so it might be worth adding that to the list. If you live close to a rural area, learning maintenance of big farm vehicles might be worth it, too.

Yes, your beliefs shape how you act, so shitty beliefs will make you a shitty person. Not shitty all the time, but shitty often enough that anyone can point at the person and see it’s mainly due to the belief.

The better answer is because Elon Musk likes that kind of content and not only allows it to proliferate, but also encourages it. Not only that, the nazis and their sympathizers have loads of money to spend on ads and bots

Could it be the stress of hyper competition to get the best grades in school in order to enter the best universities?

Could it be the korean social pressure that is always reiterating and reinforcing that those older and/or above you should never be questioned?

Could it be that salaries just aren’t enough anymore to pay for their own needs, plus their parents’ (since most retirement pensions don’t even cover the basic cost of living), as is expected from korean society?

Nah, it’s the wimmin dominating society and making this gesture 🤏

Moonie has a very good 2 part video that does explain a lot about South Korea
