    Well, it was the one in the Random thread in the FFA section, and it got deleted about an hour afterwards. It just kept saying that my account didn't have permission to report it.

    ROSS'S GAME DUNGEON: QUARANTINE

    I'm actually very interested... Especially if you can get it to run with Vulkan and use some of the newer post processing effects available.

    It was a reply to some spambot that was linking to a list of sump pumps... I couldn't report it for some reason, so I commented instead as a marker for later if it didn't get deleted.

    You do know how few in number those protesters actually are in regards to both the christian population and the general population, right? They are the noisy few. The squeaky wheel. The nail that's sticking out just a little too far. The abject morons that occur in every single group ever.

    Unless you're viewing it at 150° or more of an angle, the curve won't significantly affect your viewing on any modern curved monitor. That would be the equivalent of a 1:2 screen ratio when viewing. Just a question... What do you consider "tacky" about the MSI screen? It's is very similar to those in appearance, but without the giant bezels. It also has a higher brightness (300 cd/m2 vs 280 cd/m2) and better color range (95% NTSC vs 80% NTSC) than both for a similar price. (though it is a 1500R display instead of 1800R) As for having the correct perspective, you're going to get a LOT more accurate with a curved display, unless you're designing for a flat sign of some sort. Curved panels are very much more popular than flat for digital use apart from phones. Since you're looking for graphics work, color accuracy is much higher on the list of "mandatory things that you must have" than perfect perspective during creation. Look for an HDR monitor for that kind of work, not a low-end gaming monitor. If it doesn't have a native 10-bit panel, you're hindered for graphics work. Graphics work also doesn't need 144Hz or fast response times, so unless you're looking for an all-rounder, (very expensive) you don't need to worry about those aspects at all. Something like this would be a good starting point for graphic design... (but I wouldn't recommend gaming on it) https://www.newegg.com/axm-2768-27-qhd/p/15Z-00MH-00006

    While I feel it still isn't right to commit murder (it is murder, as it's the intentional ending of a sapient being's life) as a response to rape, there are many out there that feel it is an appropriate response. Can we at least agree that that is such a rare occurrence, that it really shouldn't be legislated for as if it happens daily? Consent should be in all things, but reality kinda shits all over that. Still, there should be severe punishments (like prison) for humans intentionally violating another human. That is a remarkably small minority of assholes that call themselves "christian". Homosexuality itself isn't even a sin, only the act of sexual intercourse outside of marriage is. (marriage is 1 man, 1 woman, according to Christ's teachings) I have nothing against people that feel that way for people of the same sex, but please don't pretend it's even as "normal" as crippling anxiety and depression. (they have a much higher incidence than homosexuality)

    Here's a rundown of a few different things you may not be considering, and some explanations for some of your questions. 1. Curved screens. They are increasingly common for computer monitors because they significantly reduce eye strain, don't cost more than a flat screen, and with very few exceptions, are servicing a single person seated at the ideal distance centered on the screen. I myself was opposed to using a curved screen until I actually got one, and realized just how much easier it is on the eyes, and how non-distracting it is. The curves used are so slight that the sharpest is a 1500R, meaning the curve aligns with that of a circle with a radius of 1500mm. (just under 60 inches radius, or 10 feet diameter) If that's just too sharp for you, try the 1800R panels. (about 71 inches radius, or 12 foot diameter) Something to think about. 2. TN panels. TN, or Twisted Nematic, has the fastest natural response and refresh times available. Of course, that is irrelevant when the other panel types can match it closely enough that no human can ever tell the difference. TN also sucks at literally everything else except for being cheap. Washed out colors, and backlighting bleed plagues this technology. Only use this if you need an ultra cheap FPS competitive screen for e-sports. 3. VA panels. VA, or Vertical Alignment, has the absolute best color reproduction of any LCD panel. With the newer technologies, can easily get to 144Hz refresh and 1ms response times. (both are at the limits of human perception) It slightly more expensive than TN, but far superior in every way. Minimal backlight bleed, very dark blacks, viewing from an angle does bleach the colors, but almost imperceptibly. This is considered to be the ideal between price and performance, as you get the best of TN's performance with almost none of its drawbacks, plus an image quality on-par or superior to the cheap IPS panels. ***If using for anything but industry-specific professional scenarios, this is the panel to get.*** 4. IPS panels. IPS, or In-Plane Switching, right now has 2 things going for it... The best black colors, and the least viewing angle color distortion of LCD displays. They suck at performance, their colors are better than TN, but worse than VA, and they're very expensive for a decent panel. IPS is for if you absolutely need an HDR display, and aren't all that concerned about cost, color accuracy, or response times. (the worst ghosting will happen with IPS) 5. LED panels. These displays are very rare in computer displays, but are common in phones with organic LEDs. (OLED/AMOLED) These are the only screen that has perfect blacks, no color distortion at any angle, and can have perfect color reproduction. The downside is, the blues fade in about 2 years, the screen is extremely prone to burn-in, (when an item like the start button stays in the same spot, it'll leave a ghost image of it there forever after just a few months) and the response/refresh rates are atrocious. QLEDs (LEDs using inorganic metal instead of organic compounds) are aiming to solve the burn-in problem somewhat, but so far have merely pushed it back to about 5 years before the blues fade too much. These displays are expensive beyond belief, especially for as low of a lifespan as they have. Unless you're wanting to spend several thousand dollars every 2 years, and don't care about response times or refresh rates, don't bother with these. I hope this was informative. Newer technologies may change this info, but for right now and the foreseeable future, this is the state of display technology.

    So you're completely unwilling to hear any point of view that opposes your own, and consider it... Got it. Good luck ranting to yourself.

    First off, it is the same as murder to a LOT of people... Mainly because it is ending the life of a sapient being just for convenience sake. There's a reason why when someone murders a pregnant woman, they are treated to two counts of murder. Second, if that's the wording in the bill (remember, I mentioned that I have not read them) then the bill is moronic. Miscarriages have nothing whatsoever to do with abortion. Third, you just got done talking about the morality of it, and then try to claim you aren't talking about its morality... Pick one and stick to it, don't be a liar. Fourth, "bodily autonomy" is not stripped from someone just because you won't let them legally murder someone. With a rare few exceptions, that person chose to make that life, and they should have to live with the consequences of that decision. Lastly, where did this "worst culture of excess on the planet" stuff come from, and what has it to do with the abortion stuff?

    The thing is, abortion is literally killing a person. Just because they haven't left the womb, doesn't make them any less a person. I am unfamiliar with the exact wording of the bills you're referencing, but giving up a baby for adoption is not a difficult process. (it's answering a few questions when delivering the baby) There are also numerous resources to assist with the pregnancy itself, so that shouldn't be an issue either.

    Ok, so... Final build specs of the system, which I am using right now... Monitor: MSI Optix MAG241C - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824475017 - $200 Case: Antec P5 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129239 - $60 PSU: Rosewill CAPSTONE 750M - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182264 - $75 Motherboard: ASRock B450M Steel Legend - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157868 - $90 CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2400G - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113480 - $140 RAM: G.SKILL Flare X (for AMD) 16GB DDR4-3200 16-18-18-38 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232767 - $90 NVMe: HP EX900 1TB - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820326786 - $120 I think I won the silicon lottery with this CPU... It's benchmarking about 5% higher than it should without overclocking. It's also housing the second best Vega 11 ever benchmarked by any decent benchmarking site I can find. (and that appears to be exclusively because I'm not using 3200 ram with 14-14-14 timings) Also, this is exclusively using the stock cooler, not an aftermarket. Here's my benchmark. (the second one, from after I fixed some RAM timing issues) https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/17008147 [EDIT] I've reduced the voltage and overclocking of the Vega 11 until I can get an aftermarket cooler... Seems after about 30 minutes of gaming, it overheats and crashes the system. Even with my reduced settings, I still have to take the side panel off to keep it cool.

    Legal analysis roundup (for USA)

    It was a somewhat faster paced version of Mechwarrior Online, with smaller maps, almost no customization, and everything was effectively locked behind microtransactions. Oh, and most of the purchased stuff was still time limited. (would go away in a day/week/month) It also liked to put all the free players on one team, and all the paying players on the other, so the paying people always won. (it was completely pay2win)
