I guess that the fact that you get hired to do something suggests that the person doing the hiring has some degree of confidence in your ability to actually do the job. But it's still kinda nerve racking sometimes when you realize "oh dang, this is important."

Feud, yes. It creeps me out every time.


Humble Indie Bundle 8. Jeez, I could have sworn they've had more bundles than that already! I must be imagining things... :roll:
Only games that are interesting to me are Thomas Was Alone and Dear Esther. I already have TWA (great game, ruined by Unity), and I'm not even sure what Dear Esther IS, nor if I might enjoy it. I am getting pretty sick of these deals. "Indie" has lost its charm a long, long time ago.

I'm following the development of another indie game, and the forums have a 'like' button feature. Albeit spam-infested, these forums are cooler.

Typical Apple: do something the world's been doing for a long long time (build a computer that needs an external screen), round the corners and present as the most revolutionary idea of the century...

I'll admit it's ludicrously powerful, the cooling system is very smart, and I want it. Mainly for running Windows though. But I won't be surprised in the slightest if Apple sells this for over $10,000, which is a great price for a computer when you're a sucker. Ironically, the machine itself looks like a sucker. Maybe that's just to remind you what you are... ;)

But to anyone considering this: Those GPUs are not designed for gaming and will be very "meh" if you try to run games on it.

I would be quite surprised. The current Mac Pro models start at $2,500, though with the addition of faster procs and more RAM, one could fairly easily spend more than $5,000, and obviously there are $10,000+ configurations. My guess is that these machines will fall into a similar spectrum of prices---a minimal machine for $2,500-3,000, with much more expensive configurations possible.

Check out this total BS marketing by LG and AOC.

Picture on the box of the product. Check out that very thin bezel.
