    Love the sentiment! But he often tells me he doesn’t want it to feel that way. That it should be fair and welcoming to everyone and feel like “our forum” and not his forum. I think it’s really sweet that he wants to be so diplomatic. It’s a shame that means people are seemingly free to do this kind of thing, though. 


    (Just saw he responded before I was done typing!) 

    And I can agree with that, but I would expect to get kicked out of the public library if I took a dump in the middle of the children's nonfiction section during storytime.

    Oooooh, that was a really good cover. I really liked the use of the melodica (I really want to get one of those at some point, seems like a fun instrument to play).

    I can see that happening, and while it has to suck as a fan, I honestly hope more fans feel the same way.

    I agree with this (and all the other points). I know there's the whole "separate the art from the artist", but that breaks down at a certain point. I mean, hell, it's not very entertaining to find out that some of your favorite entertainers are pieces of shit. Kinda ruins the experience.


    I hate putting it like that because it feels like I'm focusing on me, here. "They should be less shitty so that I can get more enjoyment out of what they do" which really isn't how I mean that. They should be less shitty, because people shouldn't be shitty, but if they are shitty, they should be held accountable for their shitty actions. Etc.


    Which sucks.

  4. I was really excited about S5. Like, super "let's stay up and watch the trailer and go through the website even though I have to be at work early tomorrow" excited.


    That whole thing leading up to the release just...I dunno, deflated it. I can't bring myself to watch it. I don't know if I was that particular event specifically, or just kind of a build up from a bunch of stuff like that (Tambor v. Amazon, etc.)


    I dunno...the more I hear about it, the less I'm excited about it. Kinda sucks...

    While that looks really cool....I dunno...it seems like they're trying a little too hard to sell a Tetris game?


    I mean it uses the Unreal Engine for Christ's sake. I don't know how Earth-shattering a Tetris game can be, but I guess we'll see?

    Raspberry Pi...3?  I guess I fell into the category of 'gotta twerk dem settings'.  I'm afraid to mess w/ whatever in the hell makes the thing think.  The recommendations online re: things to play w/ in the 'code' or 'OS settings' that could be causing the 'overthinking' are overwhelming and scary.  "Hey! (shrugs) 'try this!' (not responsible if it bricks)".  I've had extended play sessions since fan-installation - I'm good.


    Yeah, that's likely one of the settings not being set properly and it's giving 100% at all times. If you've found a solution that works for you, rock on, that's awesome.


    If you ever want to learn how to tinker with linux or systems like that, the setup you've got is PERFECT for it. You don't really have to worry about bricking the thing, as everything is essentially self-contained on the SD card. I've got four or five SD cards sitting around that each have a different project on them, and I can swap them out and it's a essentially a completely different machine.


    Check it out sometime, there are some pretty cool things you can do with it.

    - curious if any other Raspberry Pi owners experience overheating issues. 

    Hmm...I've never had an issue with overheating, regardless of the project. I wish there were some kind of logs I could look at to see if something was wrong.


    Forgive me if you've said it elsewhere, but what model Pi are you using? I've worked with just about every model and I've yet to have heating issues.


    Your setup sounds pretty solid, and I commend you. I had to set up six systems just like that I couple years back, and it is not a super easy task. I also got to play with some of the bells and whistles and was able to get the little video previews of each game working and it's so freaking cool, if not space intensive.


    Good jorb!

  8. I finished a couple episodes, and it seems to flow better. There are some new jokes here and there to keep it fresh for people who are returning to the series. I can't seem to find the original cut of season 4, but it would be nice to be able to actually compare the two.
