Re: Steam OS for Linux

Do you do any computing on desktop, or no? I'm assuing you're running Steam OS on some sort of dedicated-TV machine? I run Steam on my desktop which is running Linux Mint. My fear though is that when the Steam Machine thing finally dies off, we might see Linux versions cease to be released. Desktop...

Re: 2020 elections and current politics

That's interesting. So where do you fall on this spectrum? I think it's reminiscent of the fractures in LDS, or even modern paganism and "traditional witchcraft" versus "Garnerian Wicca". Just in terms of doctrinal difference. I'm curious about it being so popular in France, the...

Re: 2020 elections and current politics

Hey SOLDIER, nice to hear from you! Good to see your faith is still strong. I'm thinking since you capitalized "Traditional", that means it's one of those independent varieties of Catholic; is that a new development or has that always been the case? I know that can mean a lot of different...

Re: 2020 elections and current politics

A lot of my time in the last ten years has been spent frequenting a couple of Traditional Catholic fora with overlapping memberships. A lot of the members are average Joe moms and dads dealing with the day to day problems of raising families in 21st centure USA. A lot of them are well educated colle...

Re: Grand Strategy games

Started out with Shogun: Total War and moved on to Medieval and Medieval II. Rome too, though I never really digged into that. I definitely wasn't into the real time battle play. I preferred Campaign Mode, moving around the map, working on my dynasty and settlements. Crusader Kings II is great for t...

Re: Steam OS for Linux

I got this solved, yeah. I actually don't remember how, but I think I found some bug report and solution. Steam is pretty cool. I haven't played too much with its other OSy features besides serving as a platform for Crusader Kings II, but it has browsing and other stuff. The library of games it offe...

Re: Ex-Presidents

I was reading this blog post on the recruitment of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today and a section stood out, reminding me of this thread: The loss of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election exacerbated a pre-existing fracture inside the Democrat party. The far-left Bernie Sanders wing became more angry w...

Re: What have you seen?

The movie definitely has flaws, but the performances make up for it.

Bale playing twin brothers is excellent at creating two different characters with their own ways of speech and physical characteristics. Hugh is great as Angier. Michael is Michael. Sarah and Wenscombe are good as well.

Re: Who would survive?

Slider: You should. It is definitely a classic of its time. Lots of great actors. I think any post nuclear world would be pretty lawless. Even if the cities survive, the EMPs will probably make modern technology useless outside of the hardened bunkers. Those who survive the radiation, but who can't ...

Re: Who would survive?

What movie is this from? I think I would survive, and people like me. Fail Safe from 1964. In the beginning, the professor, played by Walter Matthau, is talking to a room full of socialites about his theories of how a nuclear war would play out, what SOLDIER quoted above. I had not considered the f...
