it is a mildly entertaining incentive to get out of the house regularly

Round here we call that a job. (Though I do wish the entertainment aspect wasn't because laughing is preferable to crying. Undecided)

There has to be a way to run Android in a VM with fake GPS/sensors so I can write a script to play the game for me, without actually going anywhere.

IDK why they culled the portals down when they moved them to Pokestops, but there's currently nothing for me to do except collect mons in the hopes for a high level/rarity. I'm not sure if there's any real content, though it is a mildly entertaining incentive to get out of the house regularly.

I don't watch much any more but yeah - whether it's an episode every night or just as and when I feel like it, it's much more enjoyable and easier to get into compared to being drip-fed half an hour a week.

Hah, I remember when you could tell a text message was about to arrive because speakers would make a noise! Cheesy

I have external audio because the headphone jack broke and muted the internal audio - still was a long time of wiggling it just so to get a connection until I finally got it.

My next upgrade will probably be a new mouse - my Logitech G500s has started dropping connection momentarily then reverting to a different profile, and it's getting frequent enough to be a nuisance.

That's how I am for TV shows, I wait until I can watch a season at my leisure.  My friend had a good laugh at my, "What do you mean it's not completely out yet?!".  I'm fairly sure he trolled me on purpose. :/

The old machine had 8GB RAM and had been a bottle neck.  I'm apparently computer abusive.  I was having more and more trouble with things as simple as playing youtube videos (maxing out the CPU), flash, HMTL5, didn't seem to matter.  There were a few other problems, like not supporting newer SATA with TRIM, so the SSD upgrade I made a while back was somewhat stinted (still great, just not 100%).  The onboard audio card wasn't really working so well, it kept picking up cellphone interference.  Just an assortment of little, non-deal-breakers... until the near monthly, to weekly, then daily crashes really forced my hand.
I happened to catch and really good deal and went from the 16GB RAM kit I was looking at to 32GB for a ~$15 premium.  Very lucky.  I'm still on 17GB used right now... (I have problems, I'm working on it)

So is it actually more than a buggy version of Ingress for kids? Tongue

Personally I'd want to wait for the third book to come out - don't like waiting between books.

Never read Mistborn so can't agree or oppose that suggestion.

My main machine is six years old and still hanging in there. Hope it survives more than another three!

It's only a Core i7 2.8GHz (1st/2nd gen), but it's been upgraded to 12GB of DDR3 which requires quite an effort to use up. (Unlike on my work machine which only has 8GB and is a constant chore to keep below 7GB used!)

I do also have a Skylake i3 system with 16GB that I've been (slowly) getting setup with Arch Linux, which I'll use for development work once it's ready.

I started the Kingkiller books when Name of the Wind came out, not realizing it was the only book out.  A friend just lent me the second book, The Wise Man's Fear, but I might have to reread the first book before I dive back in >_<;

I'm also being hounded to read the mist born series, but I don't trust my cousin's taste in books...
