Re: Show us your latest purchase - Winter 2020

I've got to start looking into joystick type things so I can suck in Star Wars Squadrons... and maybe finally play a bit of Elite: Dangerous! Reusing my Tweet: https://twitter.com/mythor/status/1277804783219269632 That's a Glorious Keyboard. Modular keyboard you install the switches in yourself, tho...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I don't think I've even used Discord for voice chat? Maybe once or twice. In years. :D

Such an improvement over the old days of IRC. Just having Discord on my phone is a huge benefit. No more missing messages because my computer was off, hurrah!

Re: Star Wars: Squadrons

5v5 for humans but in some of the battles there'll be an undisclosed number of AI ships in there too, to make it more hectic. It does seem small though, especially when the canon Rogue Squadron had at least 11 members and 12 in the old non-canon EU. I'm assuming there's some kind of balancing act th...

Re: Torchlight III

Still tempted, but haven't caved yet. It does look a little lacklustre so far, but ARPGs are usually fun for a while even if they're not amazing.

Maybe when it's a bit more finished.

There might also be an electronics recycling place near you that will take it and do something useful with it, worth checking rather than just adding it to landfill. Just thoroughly wipe or pull the hard drive before donating.

Oh, Screenrant... >_>

Two episodes of the show are up now and I'm enjoying it so far. Story seems quite different to the movie, from what I can remember. Also don't think the movie train was 1,000 carriages long. :-o

The tv series version of Snowpiercer is finally on Australian Netflix tonight so I am keen to forget most of what happened in the movie version and be surprised all over again!

Still amused we're getting the Snyder cut of Justice League. It's rumoured to be nearly 4 hours long, which would be HILARIOUS if true!

Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

Next two freebies on Epic should be Borderlands Handsome Jack Collection, then ARK: Survival Evolved. At least that was the rumour that first predicted Civ6. There's a free game on Steam at the moment too, Aegis Defenders. Some kind of 2d side scrolling tower defense-like thing? https://store.steamp...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Autumn 2020

Breakpoint is $29.68 while Wildlands is $37.47, which is hilaaaarious. :)
By the sound of it the sniping is even worse in Breakpoint which would really kill it for me. But $15 is preeeeeeeeeetty cheap.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

If you have a bunch of spare time or want something to do while watching TV you could always pull the HDDs apart. Can get some very strong magnets out of them, and be really extra sure the platters are TRASHED while you're at it.

Yes, I doubt they'd have an easy time of it, if they could even come up with a compelling reason to go snooping. But if the contract had been given to an Australian company... :-/

Re: Will you use the coronavirus tracking app?

They're storing the data in the Amazon cloud. Which means US law enforcement will be able to access it with a warrant. So their promises about nobody else having access are a lie from the start. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-24/amazon-to-provide-cloud-services-for-coronavirus-tracing-app/12176...

No. Partly due to not trusting the Government to use the data they collect in a responsible fashion, but also because that data will be vulnerable to hackers. It's fairly unlikely to collect any data I particularly care about sharing, but I don't trust the Government's definition of essential data, ...

Re: Novel Coronavirus (COVID19)

Don't fake symptoms, you can be arrested for inciting panic. Just take the necessary precautions (wash your hands, don't touch your face) and insist everyone maintain physical distancing and it'll probably be fine. The main danger is from people who aren't doing those things.
