  1. This compilation is fantastic. Ably Rededicated definitely sounds 100% Plaid. Some wild guesses: Qual - Phoenecia? Vogon Poetry - DMX Krew? Serum - Ochre?
  2. I'm pretty invested into Rust these days. Close to the metal while still possible to make nice abstractions with the Haskell based traits system, many functional language inspired features and much nicer ergonomics than you'd get in C++. The ecosystem is very young so for now I've used it mostly in my spare time but have been able to use it at work in a few cases where I'd normally use C++. Currently working a bit with a UI library called Conrod as cross-platform desktop UI development is in a terrible state with slow as molasses Electron.
  3. tt1pd! what an awesome violent, menacing beast
  4. I still got a bunch of old sets here: http://share.thomascolliers.com/ae/ There's some real magic from 2008 that I really wish I could get at better quality.
  5. Just finished Inside. One of the best games I've played in years. Fantastic visual and sound design, beautiful soundtrack, amazing character animations and what an astounding ending.

    Fucking Neighbors

    I live in a relatively calm/secluded street in Saigon but it's still LOUD as hell during the day and early evening. Karaoke a few times a week, whole families using the street as their living room, bi-weekly street parties. I don't mind really. They're all very friendly, I like the energy and they'll never complain when I feel like making some noise. I used to live right next to an engine workshop. That was pretty bad on hangover weekends. Every time I get back to Europe everything is so quiet.

    elseq 1-5

    Was one of the standout tracks on my first listen too. Badass track. Love it when it seems to be fading out and that beat comes in. 7th slip is pretty awesome too. Good times.
  8. So disappointed to come home today and see that Stellaris is only being released at 6 CET. A Paradox game in outer space?
  9. Saw this fine specimen in Phu Quoc http://imgur.com/lXgZTQr
  10. I'll be staying in Vietnam 10 months a year and I do not look forward to telling my friends and parents.

    I'm pretty anti-fashion to the point it's impeding logic so I'm still using the same ugly Kipling wallet I've been using since I'm 12. Haven't lost the damn thing in 14 years which is pretty impressive considering all the phones I lost. It keeps my shit and I don't lose it so I have no reason to switch really.
  12. I want to drive to Vung Tau asap so I can get out of the city and catch some sun this weekend but the girlfriend has been preparing diner for the last hour by bashing every ingredient to pieces. Just drop the ingredients in the pan ffs!

    Not sure if this one is real, but much more impressive. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiMxKxJWHjU
  14. Check your GPU driver
  15. I've had some of the same bitter ideas a few years ago. Pushing away my urges and needs out of frustration with perceived contradictions or how the system and humanity seems unfair and broken. Like some sort of protest against my true nature and reality. But that way of thinking was not the way to be happy and content, even if there might be some truth to the perspective. One of the most important mental switches for me was removing my judging prejudice that the gap between me and most people is too large to form a meaningful connection. My approach these days is that I can have a meaningful c
  16. Irrational slimming down to 15 people. :( http://irrationalgames.com
  17. Changing jobs changed my perspective on life a lot. It opens up a big can of new influences and ideas and gives me the opportunity to grow. So do psychedelics.
  18. Paranoia, disabling possible spying gear within your house, blocking communications so people don't spend all their time with their head in the cloud.. I think it should be legal to do as long as the blocking doesn't reach beyond your property.
  19. A shady friend of mine has a jammer. No idea how he got it but you can buy them online. Works really well to completely block out any wireless and cellphone signal in the house. Edit: I think it's this one: http://www.globalgadgetuk.com/personal.html
  20. I can go to Vietnam for a whole month in March.
  21. Are these electronic things better than a vapor pipe? More efficient? I have a glass vaporgenie and it seems to work extremely well for everything including weed. It's certainly better for the lungs.
  22. I had Pfeiffer's disease like a month ago and I still have an ear inflamation making any conversation a chore. This coincides with my new job where everyone is speaking French which I can barely understand with normal ears. Aaaaaargh. Also, Google must be deliberately fucking with the Firefox support on YouTube. My Firefox supports h264 now, switch to that format if you can't serve webm you cunts.
  23. A bit under $10. They mostly have better bandwith than you have so speed hit is minimal. Pick one that allows you to switch regions so you can avoid region locks too. You can also choose to only proxy your torrent traffic. Or use private trackers.
  24. I've got glandular fever since monday and it's driving me crazy. Talking, eating, drinking and sleeping are all very difficult. These sleep deprivation hallucinations are pretty cool though. I can just close my eyes and complete scenes and stories unfold effortlessly in great detail.
