  1. Thank you, You as well.
  2. Here: I hope someone finds this useful.
  3. I know..... It's just so frustrating. I feel like I have to tiptoe posting here nowadays. It's the only sim forum where I double and triple question myself before posting anything, and then you still get deleted. 😕 I posted this same thread in two other forums with not the slightest issue. Bleah
  4. Political comment? Where! Mr Trump has been shown to like gold fixtures. It's a known thing in the public domain and something he's very proud of. The ram was very shiny gold and very fancy, so I said it's something he would like. That's political? Seriously? Would it be political if I posted a video of him touring his private plane with all the gold fixtures? How..... I don't even know how to react. I know I could get banned, but that's just silly.
  5. Ok, so I had a thread here about some new, very glitzy Gold and Silver ram sticks.... And now the thread is gone. I'm not even sure who to ask why, since no explanation is/was given, and I don't even know which mod to contact. At first, I just wanted to sigh and walk away, but I would really love to know why. The only thing I can conceivably think of is because the first stick of ram shown was gold, I mentioned that even Trump (who likes gold things) would like it in his machine. That can't possibly be a reason for deleting a thread, can it? 🤨
  6. Seems like a good list! https://www.techspot.com/article/1602-what-to-buy-4k-tv-as-a-monitor/

    It's out now
  8. Well, this is my 2nd try after installing the Zibo mod thingy incorrectly. I'm not a tube flyer generally. Only tried this because some people on youtube asked for it. 😋 All settings maxed (not a great idea) except ambient occlusion, which for some reason tended to absolutely murder FPS.
  9. Two new free Vr experiences are available for all you fine VR users! 😄 https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/1939359989460713/ “Crow: The Legend” Baobab Studios’ latest VR film is a star-studded adaptation of a Native American tale that touches on themes of diversity and inclusion. The film’s character cast includes Oprah Winfrey, John Legend, Constance Wu and Diego Luna, and its animation style is unlike anything you’ve seen in VR before. “Crow: The Legend” is now available for free on Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Rift, and a non-VR version was released on YouTube this week. Next up we have: https://store.steampowered.com/app/882110/Google_Spotlight_Stories_Age_of_Sail/ “Age of Sail” Coming from Google’s Spotlight Stories unit, “Age of Sail” is the story of an old, down on his luck sailor who rescues a young girl from drowning, and in turn gets saved by her. The 12-minute short film has been directed by Oscar-winning animator John Kahrs, who tapped into his own boating experience to bring the stormy seas to VR. “Age of Sail” was released this week for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive as well as any headset supporting YouTube VR. The film can also be watched on a phone on YouTube, and is available via the Spotlight Stories app for Android and iOS.
  10. Somebody more familiar with P3D would have to answer, but my own experience makes me suspect single core performance is more important.
  11. I'm pretty confident that the image will be better, but I'm not so convinced that the wmr experience will be better than my current Oculus experience, with the ability to open Windows within the game and other things. Beyond that I believe the Oculus has the best available controllers out there and that the wmr controllers will be a definite step down. Still, I'm ready to try the experiment.
  12. I don't really feel the clock ticking on this as some seem to: for me it's already pretty successful, and for the future, things happen when they happen. I'm enjoying what's available now, as tomorrow is promised to nobody. As we speak, people all over the world are having fun with their headsets, and while they may wish for lower prices and higher resolutions, for many, that's not going to stop them from being the first to experience the future. This is pretty much my stance, and I put my money where my mouth was/is by purchasing an Odyssey+ last night.
