The GeForce 1030GT is actually a solid card. I’ve had one in my workstation/gaming pc for a while now and I actually really like it.
Bear in mind, I’m not comparing it against any other cards in its generation… as I haven’t had a current-generation PC in some time.
Regardless, I am able to play current titles at resolutions that look amazing, with all the detail goodies I want turned on.
These can be had for dirt cheap if you look online, because they’re not super efficient at cryptocurrency mining. I’d recommend it if you’re having trouble finding a GPU that fits into a budget build.
I named a SQL server squirrel.
…post something here.
Fuck, I haven’t posted in so long that the server needed updates.
So… What to talk about? Video games?
There’s a free to play game in beta on Steam. Crossout, think entirely made-up stock-market and faction warfare within a vehicle combat game, using post-apocalyptic vehicular legos and weapons. It’s a surprisingly complete game for being in beta, and has a full-featured market system and crafting table for the components used to build your ‘rig’.

So, there’s this crazy video game, beamng.drive. I played the free tech demo several years back.
I picked it up on steam on sale, and have enjoyed modding the shit out of it.
One request for the devs… network multiplayer.
Seriously, guys… Multiplayer rally, demo-derby, trucking sim, etc. It needs to happen.
This parking job would’ve been a helluva lot funnier if my friends could drive by and see it while rallying. That’s 170 to 180mph on two-lane blacktop in a fwd crapcan hatchback. I caught air and the car basically got impaled on a tree several feet in the air.
Our eccentric and often-abusive CEO, Robert “Bob” Spack is back online.
Bob says “Hi”
No, we didn’t let him, but you just can’t stop some people [or hypothetical societal constructs for that matter].
More entertaining than Trump on twitter. Check him out at channel #mrspack on EFnet, below:
Gunnery Sgt. R. Lee Ermy passed away this weekend. Even though I am not a Marine, I hold this man in a very high respect. Not only did he serve, and go to Vietnam, he stood for and promoted all of the values that make the USMC what it is.
Probably best known for his role as Gunnery Sgt Hartman in Full Metal Jacket and his edutainment show Mail Call, it’s widely shared (and likely true) that he was picked to portray Hartman after Coppola saw him working with an actor on “how to be a DI”.
He served faithfully to the Corps for his entire life, promoting the Marine Corps mission everywhere he went.
Sir, you will be missed, Sir.
GitHub, for those not in the know, is kind of like pintrest for coders, mashed up with some facebook stuff, and a bit of pastebin.
That’s not really accurate, but it’s a networking/sharing site for programmers effectively.
https://github.com/flozenstein is mine. I’ve been publishing some shit today, take a look!
A few weeks ago, I got a pretty random text message. Something to the effect of “reply immediately firstname.lastname@example.org”.
So I did… and this is what I got back.

Why do children insist on watching someone else play a video game? It doesn’t make any fucking sense.
I have a steam library with dozens of titles, a homelab with multiple VM’s, a macbook, two xboxes and more! There are probably half a dozen raspberry pi’s scattered around the house. You will never convince me that the tiny humans watch this crap out of a lack of available games.
