My xbox is gratuitously loud too. I've gone off consoles entirely mostly because of that. My PC is in quite a large case with excellent ventilation and massive fans. Even with all the fans running at max, I can't hear it over the TV as they're so big. Contrast to the tiny, whiny console fans and it's worth the effort.

It's a GTX 980. I've redone the thermal paste recently which did drop temps by 5C or so, but even then with case fans doing their thing (proper airflow in a decent case) the GPU just gets too fucking hot when I'm playing newer games. I should've changed the cooler on it years ago but it's so close to obsolete now I just get angry at it instead. It's an i5 4690K system, the whole thing is getting pretty long in the tooth. Been eyeing up those Rizens, it's nice there's some competition again.

It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

Blue LED in my Q key has died, so I've had to trick it into displaying as near to white as possible by modifying it to a specific shade of lilac that still looks white enough to match the rest of the keys which are set to a very light yellow.

Not that I ever use the fancy RGB effects, and in fact by modifying it this way I've got closer to a true white than it was before, which was far too blue; but still. I know it's there. I know it's not perfect any more. And I'll always hate that Q key for it.

Also the iron halo had snapped off my terminator captain when I came to paint him. Can't find the fucker anywhere. Had to order a new one off ebay for a whole tenner.

Bastard. Why can't I ever have nice things.

Lads, I'm without a job. Being a developerlad, I'm not too worried about finding another one, but I might have to move, and I don't know where I should go.

I'm thinking of London or Manchester. There's more to do in London, and I think there'd be more to do in London, but I'd be a bit better off money wise in Manchester. I don't know how easy it is to meet new people in either of them.

Have any of you lived in both? Could you tell me what it's like to live in them?

Are there any good cities I'm overlooking?

>Corbyn and his cronies had ages to line up a successor but their rank incompetency meant they ended up with the human potato that is Rebecca Long-Bailey.
There's not really anyone from any faction in the Labour party who's up to the task in fairness. If they couldn't dig up a future prime minister under Blair/Brown/Miliband, there was little reason to suspect the talent vacuum would end under Corbyn.
Honestly, I wish mandatory re-selection had become policy for this reason - some incumbent MPs would be booted out and hopefully sheer random chance would eventually deliver Labour a future prime minister. Sure, it's sad that some excellent social workers of last resort with ten years of parliamentary experience under their belts and who're remarkably nice people if you ever meet them in person event would lose their jobs due to the votes of weirdos who joined for 50p on the Thursday before the vote, but it seems like a risk worth taking.
Maybe I'm wrong though. Maybe Starmer is a premier in waiting, a prime minister of the dull Clement Attlee sort who nobody really took too seriously before the big national crisis. It would certainly justify my decision to have voted for him.

this is a popular misconception, but big dick energy is not a term to describe someone with an actual big dick. that's just someone with a big dick.

big dick energy is for someone with an average or small penis, or even no penis at all, in the case of women, but whom act with the presumed confidence and cockiness of someone with a big dick. hence big dick energy.

It's become fashionable to be agnostic these days, I feel, and atheism has become associated with those edgy, neckbeard fedora types. It's a tragedy if you ask me, because you have otherwise rational people excusing all sorts of nonsense brain-worms just because they don't want to look like a teenager from 4chan.

As far as I want to be able to give people the freedom to believe in what they want, I really truly can't reconcile how an otherwise intelligent person can practice faith, at least in the traditional, Jeduo-Christian/Iglooist way. It seems to me all too obvious that these religions in particular have, historically, been responsible for altogether more evil than good. Their very roots in culture exist as an early form of social control and manipulation, before we'd invented mass propaganda and the modern police state. Indeed that's the only reason they have become unnecessary.

I think it's a relic of our past we'd really be better off without. There are better philosophical approaches to dealing with the quandary of the unfathomable.

I really hate the equivocation of atheism with this brand of it, it seems like an oversimplified Americanism. And I think the prevailing truth suffers from political tit for tat for it being treated like it is a counter point to Christianity when it isn't and shouldn't behave like it is.

Little article here about Our Fungi Lord and Saviour, Roger Phillips, and mushrooms in general. Found in the Observer. Probably online now that I think about it, but fuck it, I made the effort so here it is.

I thought I had seen Are Geoff Marshall walking around up here the other month, I probably mentioned it in one of these threads, but I dismissed it. He's just released a video on our Metro system so it absolutely was him. I regret not shouting something at him about pacers, now.

Now that it's gotten a bit warm outside, I've remembered that I don't actually own a fan anymore and was too lazy to buy one in winter like I said I would. And I bet it's going to be a proper scorcher this year with all of us trapped inside and having to duct-tape our windows shut to keep out the virus.

Do either of you have any recommendations for fans or other ways to prepare for a heatwave? I've noticed that bladeless seems to be taking off but they all still seem a bit too dear unless I go for the cheap as chips version:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/EZSMART-Bladeless-Negative-Leafless-Floor-standing/dp/B07VS2GRW7

You reckon one of these will keep me alive? I'm not fucking around, there's going to be a rush in a few days on fans and my tiny studio flat is going to turn into an oven if I'm not sorted.

I bought a few USB clip-on fans last year, and they were surprisingly good.
Like https://www.amazon.co.uk/IREENUO-Rechargeable-Operated-Portable-Personal/dp/B07CWPYS5M - I just searched if USB battery fan.
They go for quite a while on battery, and if you just want to blow the sweat off, they're great. Obviously no use for doing a whole room.
Wondering about a ceiling fan for the bedroom this year, the Mrs likes her pedestal fan, but it's annoying.

The main downside is that they only work in dry heat. On a humid day they're useless to worse than nothing.
Otherwise, the small cheap ones you can get from china for £20-30, I really don't know how good they'll be, just for the fact that they probably can't physically move enough air through them to be useful. There's some bigger units around £100 that may be a better but then it's ending up being quite expensive for something that's only going to be needed a few days or weeks a year.

I wonder how hard it would be to turn a car A/C compressor into a room-sized air conditioner. You'd need some sort of motor to drive it, but I suppose a 500W electric motor should do the job.

It'd be more the supporting pipework, and putting the radiator mounts in appropriate places, and I'm no plumber.

How humid are we talking? We don't get real humidity here, do we?

Anyway, I am effectively non-functional for ~2 months of the year when the heat arrives. If there's something out there for shy of £100 that can help, it's getting fucking bought.

Not him but I reckon this comes down to where abouts you live. Near any rivers or lakes you will already be aware of the humidity difference, fucked if you get hot-rain like we had last year.

I just copied >>27425 and ordered a Meaco 650. Seems to have rave reviews and will hopefully be enough for one person.

I've recently been having dreams where I've been living entirely alternate lives.

The other day I woke up feeling like Arnold Rimmer in "Thanks for the memory" after having spent the whole night dreaming about a perfect girlfriend who never existed.

Last night I was dreaming that I was in uni as a foreign exchange student. Not only were all the popular birds dead into me and my ability to speak their language but I was training with and doing private lessons daily with one of my jiu jitsu heroes.

I don't think I have to get on the old ouija board to Sigmund to figure out what's going on in my subconscious lately.

There will be a new internal barrier system on the London Underground. When you try to change line to get on Crossrail people are filtered based on two entry points:

1. If you have a HSBC card you can go right through by presenting the card at a special barrier.

2. Everyone else needs to download a package of quiz apps and complete one which will give you a limited time pass page to scan on the barrier. There's bit of an area set up for people to complete quizzes and no you can't just download one quiz app.

My quiz was rather complicated and the first question simply said 'Robert' when they meant Robert the Bruce while describing the Battle of Bannockburn. Everyone else seemed to pass their respective quizzes with ease and got on the next train leaving me behind. Even my ex-girlfriend, who I was travelling with, decided to meet me at the destination rather than hang around.

The more miffed I got the more questions I got wrong until I started to succumb to despair. When I finally finished, 15 minutes later, the barrier wouldn't scan my now miserable score and I needed to ask a patrolling transport policewoman to let me through.

I still rate the new Elizabeth Line 6/10 because it wasn't very crowded and actually a bit cold inside. This might be a workable system.

Almost wet my dream thinking about my mother, again. Thankfully I managed to supressed it, though it felt fucking incredible riding that sensation. I haven't even been abstaining from wanking recently - i don't know what's going on.

Once i got back to sleep i found myself briefly shagging a obese black woman, which was really nice. Shew was one of those soft looking females.

After that i found some kind of massive dry slug creature trying to claim too much territory from someone in my family. I decided 'fuck this', and proceeded to show it what for. It sucked onto my arm and began rasping blood from my flesh, which was managable, until i realised the more danger it's in the stronger it gets. And it got really fucking strong, to the point i thought i'd lose my arm. I can't remember how that part finished.

What's the best method for making tomato sauce?

I usually slowly cook a few tins of plum tomatoes, but it doesn't quite taste as rich and strong as I'd like. Should I be adding in tomato puree?

I always add white wine vinegar to pasta. And a small mountain of salt. The pasta should taste delicious on its own.

It ain't perfecto if it's tinned tomatoes now is it, mate.

Lads are you worried about the coronavirus?

I've purposely not read up about it. Mainly because the SARS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and Ebola threat was over-hyped by the media. Prediction wise, I think after several months it will be contained and everyone will eventually forget about it.

What do you think?
