Let's say you had your time again. How would you go about becoming a successful architect?

I would have picked the relevant degree to study, try and find the right firm to work for, and then just hope I had the right combination of technical and creative skill to excel.

I'd skip the lessons on fire safety of materials because it turns out that stuff is only for specialist consultants to worry about.

Study architecture.

Architects I've heard talking about the profession always sound very brow beaten though, so I'm not certain I'd actually like to be one.

This - it's an extremely formal, regulated profession - not sure it's one of those you can realistically teach yourself and get into by the back door.

Why is this? And how does it compare to, say, medicine or law? Just curious.

Architecture sounds like a pretty shit job, like one of those customer service jobs where the customer is always an unpleasable bellend, only worse because you're a trained professional and they're some mong with too much money moaning at you because I WANTED THE BIG WINDOW THERE, WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT WON'T BE STRUCTURALLY SOUND, THAT'S WHAT I'M PAYING YOU FOR or whatever. Either that or just really fucking boring drawing up plans for the next copy-paste Pizza Hut branch and wondering why they don't have these things down to a template already. Also CAD tends to be really tedious.

About 22-23 is the absolute limit.

I want to disagree with this; but when I think about it, it's hard to say if I've really enjoyed a game since I was about 23.

I enjoyed Red Dead 2 for sure, but that mostly felt like playing a film. And I think I enjoy Forza Horizons when I play with friends, but I reckon in my early twenties I would have spent entire nights playing a game like that, whereas now two hours is about my limit. I can still spend eight or nine hours straight playing Elite, but that's barely a game and I don't really enjoy it, so I don't.

I was looking forward to Outer Worlds but couldn't get into it, and do not understand why so many people love it, it's bland as fuck. Maybe it really is an age thing.

Bit earlier for me. I think getting my first full time job at 21 was the nail in the coffin. Since then I only played a few games on an old N64 that I bought in 2008 off Ebay and I've still got the two Mario games to play on the Wii that I've never had the heart to really get into.

Since 21 I've only really played played games that'd run under DOSBOX other than Civ II and a year or so where I really, really got into playing UT2004 at work.

Shitposting about being architect on shedchan, browsing wikipedia after taking too much speed/modafinil, guessing your ex's facebook password and trying to figure out if she banned you or if she's got a new profile....

Next time use her account to accept a friend request from a stealth alt while you're still together. Amateur.

I think much of my enjoyment right now, at least from certain games, comes from watching how high and steady the FPS counter down in the bottom corner is. It's sick. Put me out of my misery and leave me where they won't find me. It's for the best.

Why not just run a keylogger on your laptop, and temporarily block her phone from the internet on your router so she's forced to use your computer for a couple of days? You'll probably get facebook, insta, maybe even a bank account or two.

I'm not saying you would, just that you could.

Useful for tracking where she's been, though.

I feel you.

I upgraded my system a couple of months ago, and the most fun I've actually had with it is the first couple of weeks where I was repeatedly running benchmarks, swapping out the fans, and tweaking the fan curves to see how quiet I could make it without getting into throttling territory.

Still undecided if the pair of 140mm fans I had in the front before were better than the higher spec 120mm ones I have in now, because I feel like they blow a bit too exclusively at the GPU and starve the CPU radiator a bit. If I was to swap them and test it out, I could easily waste a week tinkering without booting up a single game.
