So I went to SC15 (Supercomputing Conference) in Austin this past week.

I tossed my name in a few raffles at booths and sure enough I won one!! I have some good luck at winning things on occasion. :)

I won a freaking Air Hogs Star Wars Remote Control Ultimate Millennium Falcon Quad!!!!

Sadly a guy in my town sells ALL THIS for $150...
 
Shit. I kid you not. 
 
 

This is what a $150.00 total computer rebuild will buy you. *
1) Save all your data off the hard drive (unlimited).
2) Brand new install of your Windows or MAC operating system.
a. Install ALL the operating system updates. ALL of them.
b. Update to Windows 10 for additional $15.00 
i. Windows 10 will be fully patched, of course
ii. This also assumes your computer hardware is
compatible with W10
3) Install all the computer manufacture’s updates (IE: Dell, Sony, 
Toshiba, HP, Apple, etc.)
4) Install as many piece of software you can provide a license for 
(Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, etc.)
5) Install free software normally used by most people:
a. Acrobat Reader, FlashPlayer, Adobe Air, Shockwave
b. iTunes, Quicktime
c. FireFox (or your preferred browser)
d. Skype
6) Install free Virus, Malware and SpamWare protection
a. Or I can install your preferred computer protection if you 
provide license info.
7) Download and install (if applicable) your printer software.
8) Thoroughly clean up the disk after everything is installed. 
a. Configure operating system for best performance
9) Restore all your data back in appropriate folders.
10) Clean up the computer screen and keyboard.
11) Make hardware recommendations if necessary or consult on any 
software questions you have.

*This assumes your computer has no defective hardware and I do not have to take the computer completely apart. For example, I cannot save your data if your hard drive is damaged. BUT, I can rebuild it with a new hard drive.

 
I can't even make this shit up. My gawd people are paying for this. 
 
 
Edit -- omg "quote" makes that unreadable.

Steam Controller

17 October 2015 - 07:15 PM

Not sure how many of you pre-ordered or have thought about getting one...but I got mine YESTERDAY!!!

 

I was super excited.

 

However, I found it to be quite disappointing. It's terrible for games that were designed for controllers and not great and those designed for keyboards and mice either.

 

My small hands weren't a consideration at all and seems to be designed for the beastly stature.

 

The ABXY buttons are a bit out of reach and I seem to consistently hit B when I want A time and time again. 

 

I will say the joy stick is rather precise. It allows for a a creep across the map and easy sneaking. The tactile right stick is quite interesting and took me a bit to adjust to. For awhile I was either barely moving the camera or swinging very quickly. Shooting things was difficult even with them soooooooo close in range.

 

I've only tossed around a few different games for about an hour -- but I'm not too impressed out of the box. :P

 

More to play with but I'm not sure I favor it over my old xbox controller. Not sure if it's familiarity yet, or just simply not an amazing piece of hardware as I had expected. :P

 

More thoughts to come...I so want to like this one.
