Nothing about these two videos makes sense.

First video: Why would you just stand there and film your kid drown, saying "Goat in the water!" instead of going in after him yourself?

Second video: It's Comedy Central. Lots of things he says are silly and obviously not true (or not meant to be taken seriously). Such as the death penalty part for breaking the NDA.

Personally, I don't trust either video.

^ That.  Though seeing Welsh translations, I'm not sure that some unknown Elder God wasn't behind it...  Grin

Ah, but aren't they all unknown? Wink

(Or rather, unknowable.)

This probably counts as one of the "other services with 5% commisions," but there's also Sellbox which works with Dropbox as well as Google Drive.

From a book store signing.  And don't blame the messenger when you get it!

I don't get it. Is it Libba Brary? Or is the Butcher Skin Game the joke?

Um... More context please? I clicked the link but all I saw was what you quoted, and a bunch of replies.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: When it comes to Reddit, I just don't geddit.

My complaint is that the flash sales on GOG end at weird times. I saw something on sale the other day, it looked interesting from the "box" art, but I'd never heard of it so I watched the trailer for it and was convinced that I should buy it. When I added it to my cart, the sale had ended. This was at something like 20-25 minutes after the hour. I would have expected a sale to end on the hour, or at least in half-hour intervals. Not at 6:22 (for example).

That really annoyed me.

Hey, is that Glen Hansard of The Frames?

I think he (Glen) and she (Maria?) have a band together. Or at least an album or two. Definitely worth checking out

I lived in Dublin when the Frames were in full swing (the 90's), but never saw them embarassed

Heard one of Glen Hansard's albums when passing a record shop a couple of years ago - didnt know who it was, but it prompted me to go in and buy it -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgFTM4sdW70
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZiCW4w3mI0

I didn't even hear about the Frames until 2003 or 2004. My sister invited me on a whim to go to a Damien Rice concert. I didn't particularly love Damien Rice's music, but I'd never been to a concert before, so I went. The Frames opened that evening and I bought their CD and have been a fan of them ever since.

I haven't kept up with Damien Rice. cheesy It was a pretty good/enjoyable concert, but I definitely enjoyed The Frames more.

BTW, I just looked it up and the band/album the two folks from the video up above have is called The Swell Seasonw. Her name is Markéta Irglová. Again, it's definitely worth checking out.

Here's the lovely scene from the movie Once where we get to hear the song Falling Slowly.

Some background: The film is about a Dublin vacuum repairman and street busker (know only as "the guy" in the script) who dreams of putting a demo recording together and making a stab at a music career in London "once" he's ready.

While performing a few of his songs on the street he is approached by a woman (a Czech immigrant worker known only as "the girl" in the script) who annoys him by asking several questions about his songs. When he tells her he's really only a busker, and is actually an appliance repairman, the girl is delighted. She has a broken vacuum cleaner and asks him to repair it. After tugging her canister vacuum across Dublin the next day to his repair shop and getting it fixed she mentions that she is a musician too. When the guy asks if he can hear her play, she explains she's a pianist and doesn't have the money to buy an instrument. But she tells him there's a music store not too far away that lets her play the store instruments from time to time. They set off, him carrying his guitar and she dragging her vacuum cleaner behind her. When they arrive at the music store the following scene takes place as he shows her one of his songs - and to his surprise sees her quickly master it, sparking a near perfect duet...

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhN5zX4U7oA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhN5zX4U7oA</a>

I particularly enjoyed this because anybody who has ever played music seriously has a similar experience sooner or later. It doesn't even have to be this romantic - and it's usually not. But there are those magic moments when you're playing along with someone else and something suddenly clicks - and real music springs into existence.

It's one of the most gratifying experiences ever. And the thing that absolutely makes all the lonely and frustrating years of study and practice feel like a bargain - the best you ever had. Wink

Glass packs?  I haven't heard that term in a long time.  Also known as Cherry Bombs or Smittys.   tongue

Yup.  I'm showing my age.  I have a feeling I'm going to feel my age soon.

Am I showing my age when I say I have no idea what either of you are talking about?
63  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Programmers: What size monitors do you guys prefer? on: June 24, 2014, 03:08:24 AM
[Disclaimer: I started this post earlier in the day and then got busy away from the PC before I could finish it. So I finished what I was writing and posted it, even though it's been about 16 hours since it was delivered and I haven't had much time with it.]

I just got my 27" 2560x1440 monitor.

I'm still trying to figure out how to position it on my small desk next to my 25" 1920x1200 monitor, but so far I'm liking it.

I was worried about ordering it off eBay from a Korean seller. Worried it might be a piece of junk, or that it would be damaged, or have tons of dead pixels, or that if I had to return it due to defectiveness it would cost an arm and a leg for shipping, etc., but the seller had a very high rating and I searched through the customer feedback for the monitor and all but one were good feedback. So I took a chance on it.

I'm happy to report that shipping was really fast (it came from Korea faster than some items I ordered from elsewhere in the USA from Amazon!) and there are no dead pixels and the image quality seems to pretty good. It's at least superior to my old monitor as far as brightness, contrast, viewing angles, etc. go.

I would definitely recommend it for a single monitor setup.

I'm still trying to figure out the best way to handle the dual-monitor setup. To get it to fit on my desk I've turned my old monitor at an angle and pushed the new monitor a lot farther back than my old one used to be. This means that in addition to the higher resolution (which means smaller looking text) it's also far enough away from me that my myopia affects how well I can see it. This means I will likely have to wear my glasses while at my desk, and they tend to give me a headache after a while. But who knows. Maybe my next big purchase will be some LASIK surgery to fix my vision and that will no longer be an issue. If it wasn't for the vision issue, I think I'm already at a point where I like it enough to say that I would wholeheartedly recommend it in a dual-monitor setup. Heck, two of them would be pretty cool side by side! (c:

I was just uploading something (which was using up all my upload bandwidth, causing my download speeds to be poor) and a YouTube video had to pause a couple of times to buffer, then a link appeared under the video with something like "Experiencing interruptions? Find out why!" So I clicked it and got taken to this page:

https://www.google.com/get/videoqualityreport/

I'm posting it here because it seems somewhat related to this thread. Like it's in preparation of Net Neutrality (i.e. analyzing traffic in case ISPs such as Comcast throttle the YouTube bandwidth).

Apparently you can edit an ini file which will allow you to have more than 4 players in an online game. (c:

You go into your prefs file in the Risk of Rain steam folder and change the max_players_online=4 line.
66  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Has anyone notices Youtube bandwidth requirements just increased? on: June 21, 2014, 03:46:17 PM
Maybe because they decided that most connection speeds and display resolutions have improved enough that 480 isn't an unreasonable default?

EDIT: Oh, I see now that the link is for YouTube Live Streaming. I don't really see where it says the default has changed there. And it seems lower resolutions are still offered.

Another EDIT: I know that the size of my browser window will affect the default player size. For example, if I've recently downloaded something and the download bar is showing at the bottom of my browser, the YouTube player will be smaller. If I close it, it will resize to a larger area and set the quality of the video to 720p. So maybe you've just resized your browser window recently?

Hi folks,

I'm looking for one more person to get in on a 4-pack for Risk of Rain.

It would be about $1.88 per copy.

Any takers?

Thanks.

Here are some photos of when I was trying out a 4K 39" TV as my monitor:

[attachimg=#]
39" TV with my now-dwarfed 26" monitor peeking over the top.

[attachimg=#]
39" TV with the 26" hiding behind.

As stated in the thread linked above, I felt that the 39" TV was just too huge to be conducive to working at my PC and I ended up returning it.

That's what I mean. BC can make laws about California all they want. But they don't have the authority/power to enforce those laws in California. The only way those laws would make a difference is if Google/California/USA chose to follow them.

Vimeo has its own problems. It has been known for taking down videos of "gameplay" (for videogames) simply because Vimeo considers itself a website for artistic videos and they don't consider videogames artistic enough... or something.
