Re: 7 Days to Die

I've gotten totally addicted to 7DTD. Was thinking about investigating getting a multiplayer server set up that we could control...

Re: Happy Birthday Greebo

Thanks all!

My oven baked graphics card finally died so I haven't been able to play many games of late. Got a 1080 ordered though so that'll change soon!

The housing for the fan and the fan itself (I think) are both plastic, they came off together when I unscrewed and detached the heat sink.

Re: Video card + Oven = ...

So the card got glitchy again with exactly the same symptoms.

Re-baked at 385F for 8 minutes this time, and it's back!

Poor thing just has to last long enough until the GTX 1080s come out!

Re: Video card + Oven = ...

Thanks all! (and don't worry, mlite, the only metals the cookies contain is a touch of mercury to spice things up a bit!) The only downside of it working is I can't use it as an excuse to get my machine VR ready! Dog - I'm taking an extended break from E:D again. I've got too many unfinished project...

Video card + Oven = ...

So my graphics card started playing up last weekend. I'd been playing rocket league when the computer crashed in dramatic fashion (possibly it overheated). I rebooted the machine and suddenly I had 2 thick red (occasionally yellow) vertical lines through both of my monitors. The computer also wouldn...

Re: Elite: Dangerous Release

I found me a black hole! I was about 350Ly from the Lagoon Nebula, which lets the galaxy view route finder choose a route for me all the way there. I was looking along the chosen route to make sure I wasn't about to hit a series of stars that I couldn't refuel in, the systems were all randomly named...

Re: Elite: Dangerous Release

I missed the boat on the lifetime pass. Is Horizons worth it? (If I bought it could I immediately start landing on planets, even though I have no rover on board?) I suspect my journey will take longer than 6 weeks - between work and the kiddo I suspect my time will be limited at best! I was lucky en...

Re: Elite: Dangerous Release

I finally got a new joystick for xmas and am now continuing my journey to the galaxy center.
Still a long long way to go (because I obsessively explore every system I journey through...might stop that soon!), currently about 2100Ly from Sol and heading towards the Lagoon Nebula.

How to not buy things on the steam sale

Well...I've finally lasted a whole steam sale without buying anything! How did I achieve this magic you ask? Well dealing with a newborn does wondrous things! Our son Kaiden was born 3 weeks ago and has been keeping us very busy. He's really cute (not that I'm biased), eats like a teenager and is cu...

Re: Elite: Dangerous Release

Realised I've been posting screenshots to a facebook group I'm in but not here! This game is so frickin' pretty! Was fuel scooping a while back and saw a solar flare start to form in front of me. Took a ton of screenshots and made a gif of the result (whole thing took around 1 minute): http://greebo...

Re: New Villun on the way...

Thanks all!

@Domer - sounds like we need a The Ville clothing lineup. Purple onesies!
