That's right, you unkempt, hipster shitfaces.  XD

Why are screenshots from this website all over my stream all of a sudden when it doesn't even work?  Couldn't detect any faces?!?  Clearly, there is something wrong with their algorithm.  Pfft!

I bought this e-book with part of my friggin $45 balance sitting on Google Play.  It was recommended to me a by a guy I used to work with who used to be a motorcycle safety training instructor.

So far, it's a great read.  Tons of information here.  I'm only maybe a quarter of the way through (maybe less--it's pretty expansive), and already I've learned a lot (like some pretty in-depth, yet simply explained, physics lessons), and confirmed some of my suspicions (counter-steering isn't constant, it's momentary).

There's so much misinformation out there from people who don't really know what they're talking about (like, you stop faster if you lock the tires up, so ABS is stupid (lulz?)).  Glad I found this before I started listening to some of those people.

Look what I found! :D

The Witcher 3 PC Collector's Edition.   I have no doubts it will run like shit on my machine until I upgrade my videocard, but this thing came with lots of awesome extras.

The box is huge.  The figurine of Geralt battling a griffon is pretty cool.  There's also a heavy duty hardcover art book, steelcase to hold the discs, necklace, keychain, map, soundtrack, etc.

Maybe I'll hold off playing it until I'm able to be sure will run well on maximum settings at 1440p. :P

Anybody play The Witcher series?

Dear Comcast,

This is why we hate you.   Please go out of business so that Google Fiber can replace you.

Thank you.
Sometimes you have to pat yourself on the back after a job well done. But if you're a company for whom accolades may be in short supply, it helps to sponsor (and have one of your executives be in c...

I'm loving these new keycaps on my KBTalking Pro 1.1 mechanical keyboard.

These are such a pleasure to type on due to their high quality, double-shot, thick PBT construction.  They feel far more substantial than those cheap, garbage caps I had on it before.  The thickness of the plastic makes gives them heft and a fantastic sound.

The old ones I had were a combination of black on black (laser engraved, and some of the raised emblems were wearing off), and white on green (pad printed, which is just cheap and would eventually wear off).  Both were thin, cheap, and flimsy feeling.  The black ones came with the keyboard, and I bought the green set for under $20.

Because these are double-shot, there are two different colors of plastic in the same mold, so they'll never wear off.  The only disadvantages to that are slightly higher cost, and somewhat inconsistent character widths, since the plastic is injected and then some shrinking and warping can occur to the glyphs.  Overall, these are excellent though, and finally feels how I wanted the keyboard to feel--it's like a whole new keyboard.  The blue on white is a good look too, I think.

All keyboards used to be mechanical like a jillion years ago.  Now they use garbage, squishy keys for the most part.  If you haven't used a mechanical keyboard in a while, or ever, I highly recommend you try it out.  This one has Cherry Red key switches, and it's the perfect feel for me.  Mechanical keyboards have a huge following for good reason.  I can't stand those cheap rubber dome switches that are in most keyboards, and just about every laptop.

Yeah I'm not sure what's up with that. It should be a full keyboard not 60%. But I guess they wanted room for a trackpad maybe. Kind of clever use of space, but this is a gaming laptop. Nobody uses a trackpad for gaming. :/

Not really digging the new office location... sigh

Crackheads and knife wielding maniacs everywhere.  No parking.  Have to take public transportation where everything smells like week-old urine.  The office is extremely open, cold, drafty, and noisy.  It's going to be very distracting.

At least the internet is fast as fuck, and there's lots of places to eat in the area (if you dare to brave the masses of human trash lumbering around outside).  Also, we have these cool desks that raise and lower with the press of a button, so you can sit or stand, and they can remember four different height settings.

Even still, the filth of humanity will surely test the depth of my sanity in this place.  Downtown Seattle can suck a giant, crusty, herpes-sore-embellished nutsack, gnawing lovingly on its leathery rind.  If not for all its festering, soul destroying, diseased and decrepit occupants meandering about, Seattle might just scrape by as slightly more charming than a ball of moist, moldy pubic hair from an elderly man living under a bridge.  I wouldn't be surprised if I actually see that sometime today.  #dontmovehere

I could put a battery in my truck and do the same thing. It's easier to just stand at the end of my driveway. XD
