General Discussion / America's Cup
« on: May 29, 2017, 04:34:07 PM »
Does anyone else know this is on?  Or care about it? 

That sport where you need about a hundred million to get a team in it, where the previous winners can set the rules to whatever they want!

There is Team USA who has an Australian at the wheel.
Team Japan has a New Zealander at the wheel.
Team GB has an Olympian who has won more sailing medals than anyone by the sounds of it. He seems to think this race is actually a demolition derby and keeps crashing into other boats/the wharf.
Team Sweden has an Australian at the wheel
France and NZ actually have someone from their country driving :P

The Australians withdrew, maybe due to their best people on other boats? lol

Some of it all seems a bit silly, in the previous cup, after it was over, they said the boats would never sail again.  They needed a massive crane to lift them out of the water and put them back which is expensive to operate.

Other Tech Toys / VR
« on: May 21, 2017, 07:44:47 PM »
Anyone got it yet?  Seems to be quite expensive .. and you need a really good computer to be able to power it.

Due to this, I'm a long way off having it myself.  I'm going to try to visit a friend in a few months when he is back from holiday and have a go at it.  I heard you can't really have it explained, you have to experience it.

Maybe there is a theme here.  People (without kids) who can afford a 2 month holiday, can afford VR :P

Also VR is very new relatively at this point, there are a lot of silly little things around.  I'm interested in Serious Sam VR myself.  They ported their old games (all of it) with full motion, not just stuck in a spot with waves coming at you.

Music / RIP Chris Cornell
« on: May 18, 2017, 04:13:06 AM »
Shit, dying at only 52! His voice was a massive part of my teen years and beyond.  Luckily I heard the man sing live 3 times, solo and in Soundgarden.  I'm not sure a musician dying has hit me like this before.  So unexpected :(

Diablo 3 / 5 years today
« on: May 14, 2017, 05:00:21 PM »
Doesn't seem that long ago .. the anticipation, the booking of 3 days holiday. 

Then .. it was time for ERROR 37 and other friends.

So glad thats just a memory now.  After those first few days of experiencing the story slowly I'm glad our current game is much different and better.

General Discussion / New people (or bots) without intro posts
« on: May 08, 2017, 04:26:29 PM »

Should we have a friendly sticky asking for people to say hello first, or soon apon arriving so we know they are actually human and get some idea about them?  See that wall of text in the argument chamber?    Also saw someone else did a first post about Xbox (seems more human).

The problems of having a working sign up area!

Diablo 3 / Idea: the paragon table
« on: May 04, 2017, 06:17:14 PM »
Did you know Sideshowbob is approaching paragon 2200?

I sometimes have a look at this, more for seasonal progress to get an idea who is powerful and probably finished and who is still chugging along and may need a help/can help.  I thought I might collate a little table showing SC and HC progress and updating it every now and then. 

The purpose wouldn't be e-peen, just over time allows snapshots of things.  It really illustrates how pushing those high rifts breaks the glass ceiling.

Diablo 3 / Goal: having a full Kanai's cube
« on: May 04, 2017, 06:03:58 PM »
I heard Bob already has done this of course, has anyone else tried towards it?  I started with my DH and working to the achievement of 100 items in the cube.  Then each season I would see what I had never cubed, and try to do those.  I'm now down to 39 based on my last count.   27 in the weapons/off hand, 9 armour, and 3 jewelry.  17 crusader and 13 monk are the biggest headaches right now, but with a crusader in the current season I'll see what I can do about that!

I'm not yet at any one character completely finished, two of them are 1 off each

I've found its been a nice little distraction and helps towards the old "grailing" type mentality.

Diablo 3 / Share your achievement score! (continued)
« on: May 03, 2017, 08:44:30 PM »
Resurrecting the old thread, it was about 240 days since the last update.  The D1 event alone means people have moved a bit.

*edit* added TheMikrobe, and fixed spacing

I found Dave likes a bit of cock punchery.  He has 100% in the set dungeons!
Cluck has got 2 rare ones to make mn4nu a bit jealous. Saviour and the Monk Heals!
Welcome Lego! You can only go up from here :D
Welcome Fnarkl!
Biggest jump in score goes to zerograv who is up 2000 points!
Melchy up almost 1000 too.
mn4nu is only up 180 points, but now has 100% rating in 7 categories.  Time to get that healing monk going and you can finish it!  Only 45 more people to save from death ..
Supermatt up almost 900!

It seems apart from Agode (probably on a break) all the top people have expanded a bit

The Argument Chamber / Relevant thoughts from The Oatmeal
« on: May 02, 2017, 04:26:45 PM »
As a non American most of the things didn't shock/anger me. I'm going to look more into that things about the republican judges though..

Some good things to think about when discussing ideas in here, or in other places in life

The Argument Chamber / Successor to Queen Elizabeth II
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:42:28 PM »
Ok first I hope she sticks around for many more years, but she is mortal and I'm not a big fan of the idea of King Charles. Imagine if there was a public vote on the replacement? Who would you vote for?

King William with lots of time on the clock, or maybe King Harry? Or another female?

The fact not many people out there have a living memory before 1952 means it will be an interesting time.

I think a King Charles could mean a few countries on the common wealth may change to republics and have their own head of state
