Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Trying to get games redeemed for various bonus offers is horrible. What happened to just getting a game code in the box? So far of 3 I've had 1. This one worked, but the instructions for how to do it were written in terrible Engrish, had to get a code from the hardware itself after it's already inst...

Bought a pretty case for my new PC build. Just have to wait for it to arrive before I can go get the other parts

Copy Apple? Apple haven't had an original idea since Jobs died.
They've been doing it since before he died. Even before then I always found their phones to be a bit garbage, especially the one that only supported Windows 98 connections that was released well after XP was a thing.

Android is fine, it's Samsung's attempts to copy Apple that make their products a bit garbage.

There's a real simple solution if you dont like the model, dont buy their products.

The customer(market) is always right.
Yep, a lot of pirates don't buy the products :)

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Spring 2019

Was thinking of the Maldives next year, maybe they can built the villas on bigger stilts?

BTW Bali was awesome. I think the bad reputation comes from bogans hanging out on the beachfront/bars in Kuta, but the rest of the island is great :)

Definitely worth some time otherwise they will keep doing it. I would say give it a couple of hours worth, then send it through the TIO.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

You are aware that the very definition of 'leather' is a material made from the skin of an animal by tanning or a similar process, right? It's actually not possible for 'vegan leather' to exist. Sure, slap a sticker on it to say it's vegan, whatever.... but call it what it is. Same argument exists ...

I guess they have a point where protesting out of the way means it's easy to ignore them. Doesn't stop them being annoying.

Side note: Just because they say it's 540mm wide doesn't necessarily mean it's actually 540mm wide.

Just noticed it's super shiny and reflective too.

Agree with Cherry. None of the electrics I've owned do a super smooth shave, but they are good enough to look like you've shaved.

Assassins Creed Syndicate for $29.99us at Green Man Gaming - best deal I've seen
It's been cheaper before.
Currently the cheapest I could easily find is $11.98 US at GameBillet which I believe is an official partner and $14.89 at CDKeys.com if you want a reasonably reliable grey market.

Club Med Bali. Not super cheap, but still pretty good if you book at the right time considering it's all inclusive. Including flights and transfers we are looking at $434 per day for 2 people for 10 days.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

The super cards are a slight improvement over their predecessors at the same price point. Still a lot cheaper than the Ti cards. Probably going to get a 3700x (cheaper than the 9700kf I was eyeing off) and a 2080 super. Not in a huge rush but would like it soonish. Have to look at reviews of the new...

Was ready to drop money on a new PC at the start of last month but then AMD announces the new Ryzen stuff. Now nVidia has announced a video card refresh. I got used to the something new is just around the corner but normally it was 6 months off. So now I'm waiting for 2080 supers to be released here...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

It's a lot better in big cities. I have the option of spending around $7 a day on busses or $30 on parking plus whatever on petrol. Due to the OBahn the bus is probably faster than a car during peak hour too.
