I watched some Fox News yesterday after the verdict just to get the perspective from the other side.  I had to turn it off after about 15 minutes.  All they were talking about was how there is America isn't racist, there's no systemic racism in America, white people aren't racist, etc, etc... It was disgusting.  Of course all the people saying this were white.

yeah there's some gross-ass shit coming from the right...

We should at least keep the facts straight, because doing otherwise plays into bullshit narratives that weaken the case against asshole cops.

He did not get pulled over for an air freshener. He got pulled over for an expired license plate.

(ok, truthfully, he got pulled over for driving while black, but you know what I mean)

I've had LG and Acer monitors and no complaints about either. My 2nd monitor right now is an *ancient* 1600x900 Acer (set vertically, mostly for chat windows while gaming) and it's still going, no dead/stuck pixels or anything.

Of the two, I think LG might be the better brand, though?

GSync is amazing. I could never go back now.

A 3070 can't really handle 4k. I mean it can do it, but you're going to be turning down settings in games. One of my best friends has a 3070 and a 4k monitor and... well, he's looking to upgrade his GPU (if upgrades could be had!). Another friend has a 3080 and still struggles at 4k with high game settings. Unless you want to play stuff at 30fps, in which case you might as well skip the GSync part too.

I'd say go 1440p. 27" is the sweet spot for this resolution for dot pitch.

Curved is up to you. I think it looks weird and throws perspective off, but ymmv.

Also, IPS panel > VA > TN.

I have this Asus and it's glorious. 1440p res, 144hz, GSync, IPS panel. I would recommend one like it any day. I say like it because it's not available any more, so whatever equivalent Asus has replaced it with. Though it might be beyond your cap, now that I think about it. I got mine on sale and it was like $370, but MSRP was more like $450 iirc.

It's not bad. The story is decent if you're really invested in Star Wars lore (I am).

But I am absolutely convinced they should have written the game around Trilla Suduri as the main character instead of Cal. Her story is FAR more compelling and interesting...

Donít look at d2 resurrected..

Yeah, but that's a game from 20 years ago. It can be forgiven. It would be unreasonable to expect them to change it now.

Aww Pixie, common.  You just don't like that the characters are locked in.

Yep, that's right. LOL. No game in 2021 has any excuse for doing this nonsense.

Isn't that game free to play?

And still overpriced!

Just watched Raya and the Last Dragon

I am blown away. I could rewatch it immediately. It might be (in my opinion) the best Disney movie ever.

So.Damn.Good.

Right in the feels, too.

I had moved my documents folder.  But the saves weren't there.  I am guessing something go screwed up with that.

Frustrating but not deal breaking.  I will play Cyberpunk again once the game is in a better state and when they have added some more content.

Yeah, like I said - saves are not in documents anymore like they used to be in previous Windows versions. They're parallel.

In your "users\[name]" folder in Win10 now you have:

\Documents\
\Downloads\
\Music\
\Pictures\
\Saved Games\

And some other shit. So you need the whole user folder, not just the docs subfolder.

Yeah, if you only saved your "Documents" folder and have turned off cloud saves, you lost them. "Saved Games" exists in parallel with that one (along with music, downloads, pictures, etc). For future reference, with Win10, save the entire folder with your username on it under C:\Users\
