  1. I worked with a guy last year that took "Metric makes more sense" and "Metric is better" as fighting words. It would somehow trigger a deep anger.
  2. Here lies those maps on OC that've earned at least a 7/10 rating in SBB's playtesting. Any that place here will additionally earn 15 raffle tickets!

  3. I feel like it'll only happen when a Mars colony finally takes off, because it would obviously be all SI, and would become the main focus of advanced technology rather than how the US has been in large part. We'll then find that we have to change to remain relevant. If the US was some small less-consequential country, we would've switched ages ago; we haven't because we can afford not to.
  4. Pretty much no one knows what fahrenheit temperatures mean when it comes to computers, because nothing reports that by default, which makes sense because no one uses it for scientific purposes anymore either. I can't wait 'till we finally tell fahrenheit to fuck off.
  5. Curved is sweet at those large sizes, but yeah I never got the backlighting. It's for all those people that like putting extra lights in their builds.
  6. Never realized how wildly inefficient they are compared to other A/C solutions. Good to know now that I'm shopping for a new one; here's why: This is also an awesome channel for some generally older and plain ol' vintage technology. His videos on color TV development and tube radios were fascinating.
  7. Fuck, those specs are nuts. I was just thinking of going VA panel for my next screen though. IPS is still ultra expensive for the high-performance stuff.
  8. There's now going to be 2 winning raffle tickets per month, each worth $25. And yes, anyone that has more than 1 ticket does have the chance at having both drawn!
  9. Similar to the last two (I)(II), this competition is for the creation of new CE maps, where users registered here (non-entrants must have 5 or more posts) will vote on their favorite submission. Submissions will suffer 2 rounds of voting, each with a 5-day duration to help maintain development schedules and heighten competition over the 2 month period. 1st-round submissions are to be posted to this thread with their name and description (or link to development topic), and the direct download. Submission Rules May only submit an unprotected .map file with no prerequisite beyond public releases of Chimera. Modifications must not consist primarily of content that the entrant didn't create themselves. Entries may not have been announced more than 7 days before this topic was made. Dates (all times in EST: UTC-5:00) 1st-Round Entries: June 12th - July 13th @ 11:59pm 1st-Round Voting: July 14th - July 19th @ 11:59pm (only 1st-round entrants may enter 2nd-round) 2nd-Round Entries: July 20th - August 24th @ 11:59pm 2nd-Round Voting: August 25th - August 30th @ 11:59pm 1st-Round Prize 1st Place: 10 Raffle Tickets 2nd-Round Prizes 1st Place: $50 (US) via PayPal + Promotion of Map via Mass-Email + 5 Raffle Tickets 2nd Place: $25 (US) via PayPal + 5 Raffle Tickets 3rd Place: 5 Raffle Tickets Additional Prizes (at conclusion of contest) 5 Raffle Tickets for the creation of a development topic for your submission's progress made before 1st-round voting begins, and containing at least 10 posts by the end of the contest. OC does allow double posts made more than 24-hours apart, so you don't need to rely on others! 5 Raffle Tickets for a final submission where its custom content owes no credit beyond yourself.
  10. I just finished catching up with the latest season of Archer, and also re-watched House of Cards not long ago which was one of those things you need to see more than once to catch everything. As far as movies go I saw Silver Linings Playbook a few days ago, not my usual m.o. but I did enjoy it a lot.
  11. Cleaning kit for the new gunz: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DKXTB3P/ Case for the rifle: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00YU69CD6/
  12. Share what you've recently purchased! I just ordered a replacement headset from Newegg because I've been stuck using my cam mic for a while, and now that I have my laptop back I could use a second output device. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826158082
  13. MiB: International Not bad at all, but not terrific either. Chris Hemsworth got to throw a hammer again.
  14. This was SUPER interesting, on how color and B/W data was broadcasted together in the same signal without utilizing more bandwidth than B/W already used.
  15. Found this quite fascinating regarding signal reconstruction at band-limited frequencies, partly because of the RF work I do, though audiophiles should really find it interesting too.
  16. Submissions are always open, however periods are partitioned by month (EST). Voting topics go up for 5 days at the start of each month. Submission Rules You may only submit one screenshot, and it must be your own. Your screenshot must not be edited after it's taken. Cinematics are not eligible. Breaking these rules will bar you from OC competitions. Prize 5 tickets for the Monthly Raffle Hall of Fame
  17. This would be HUGE if accomplished.
  18. Curious what the spread is out there these days. If your OS isn't on the list, post it and I'll (maybe) add it.
  19. As a reminder, winners now earn tickets again.
  20. Yeah to be honest I couldn't think of a map you did lol but know you've done a good amount of work in the past.
  21. It's been a while since I've seen you mapping!
  22. Hey welcome back; you missed the last two competitions though lol 31 days and 4ish hours. First round submissions just opened! Also double posts made within 24-hours of each other are auto-merged, so you wouldn't have made that deadline anyway.
