End of the Month WRUP

Well, here's another week gone. Been a busy few for me and that's good because work usually starts slowing for me quite a bit toward this end of the season. I've managed to put some money aside to budget a new GPU for the recent releases. I plan on waiting for AMD to show us all what RDNA 2 is all about before I actually pull the trigger, but I think I'll end up staying with AMD anyway because I have a Freesync monitor and even though Gsync is supposed to work with Freesync now it's still kind of a crap shoot whether your panel is compatible. And let's face it, I'm not into spending another $300 plus on a new monitor once I get a new GPU. Read more

October WRUP

Hello Twinstiqers. Or is it Twinstiquers? Anyway, it's Fall now (my favorite season), specifically October (my favorite month), and I'm doing my best not to let Covid ruin it for me. Luckily, protective face masks and social distancing aren't required for eating candy, decorating my home, watching Ghostbusters, and/or playing Castlevania games. I strongly recommend doing one's best to get into the spirit of the season. Apart from making you feel like a kid again and just being plain fun, it can also be a great way to de-stress and take your mind off of all the election and pandemic chaos going on right now.
 
Anywho, what's everyone playing this weekend?

More Smoke WRUP

The entire state of CA is under a heavy layer of smoke. It's like fog here because of the Creek Fire, which is now nearing 190,000 acres; but it's slowing. The valleys are blanketed from various complex fires that are now over 400,000 acres each and it's not just CA. We're getting smoke from Oregon as well. Read more

Weekend Raft Urchin Papers

Well, the fires are lessening locally and so is the smoke that's been hanging in the air for the last couple of weeks. It's nice to be able to get some outdoor workouts in and not feel like I've just been in the smoking section of an airplane back in the 80's. Yeah that was a thing. Read more

WRUP Speculation

Hey everyone, I'm back but still dealing with remnants of this irritating cold. I've been paying some attention to the new generation AMD GPU rumors and I figured I'd talk a little about that before we see what folks are playing around here. Read more

Hot as WRUP

What's up, Twinstiq folks? Happy August! Here in the northern hemisphere, we are now entering the hottest month of the year, and thanks to global warming, this August will likely be one of the hottest on record. Again. Though I suppose Covid-19 is giving most people a reason not to venture out too much at the moment. So...yay for that, I guess?

Either way, stay safe out there. What is everyone playing this weekend?
