        I mean, falling-short-of-Part-2 expectations-wise. I've been excited to see this for a while since I'm a fan of the franchise, and to hear that it doesn't at the least match 2 is a bit sad. Definitely agree the first one is peerless, btw.

        Ah, but that's not something app programmers usually think about. They consider it a system-level problem. Or a library problem. There are some libraries that "do the work" and throw it away because it's unneeded, simply for that reason, tho.

        Actually, the reality is that most apps will run just as fast without a bunch of threads.

        There are a few, but yes we're lucky to even have developers that can get stuff done even when there's no library to do it for them.

        Just the look and feel of things, basically. It's a relatively faithful adaptation of the manga, but the animation doesn't match the quality of S1.

        Also I just hate the HDR-looking style JC employs.

        It's too faithful to me, in that they don't actually flesh out movements and just substitute with special effects. Like I said earlier, pretty much the manga with colours and audio thrown in.

        I could rewatch S1 no problem, but S2 feels like they're just going through the motions (or the panels, to be precise), to the point that 90s anime seem to have better action.

        Dude, go Pentax and hunt for the their old SMC-series manual lenses. They have no AF or AP functionality but do have sharpness and crisp colours you will love. I would almost recommend Nikon but that Nikon/Nikkor brand commands high prices and Nikon does not understand the importance of legacy lenses like Pentax.

        I was reading a blog post on cheap used lenses today. It is all very interesting, and my one legacy lens does offer rewards all its own, but in general... Yes, one can buy lots of cheap lenses like that, but then why did I buy a body with sophisticated autofocus mechanisms. Might as well have bought an older camera too.

        My next camera will be a Pentax K5 or K50/70. After that I am done with big DSLRs. If I had been a Nikonian I would have chased the D700/750, gotten the legacy lenses and stopped a long time ago.

        More interested in something for open cans that keeps the soundstage & air, but would block the music from disturbing coworkers. And absorbs or greatly attenuates vs. reflecting.

        But this could certainly be used for subwoofer tuning.

        There are YTers who rip the shit out of their Ferraris and R8s. Just saying it is a sad old story that having money automatically means zero competence. In some cases yes, but I never cared for these people. Koenigsegg is more of a technology statement anyway. At least they drive the industry forward with new and cool designs like upper mentiond valve tech.

        That’s not quite true, a lot of koenigsegg owners I think really like the idea of breaking records, so customer cars frequently get used to attempt records at tracks and stuff, or the Agera RS that was used to set the top speed record several months ago

        In portland you do have Cinetopia though, which is excellent even if it isnt Dolby Cinema or laser IMAX. I also saw it in Dolby Cinema today, which was just as, if not more, impressive than laser IMAX was

        I wouldnt buy too much into the hype, that may just lead to disappointment, but i am excited to see what AMD pulls off with Zen 2.

        But, I am also excited to see Intel's first new micro-architecture since Skylake when they release Icelake later this year on 10nm

        Yeah ofcourse we will see what happens. It's good to see some competition from AMD again though. Intel is in a bit of trouble with 10nm i wouldn't be suprised if it ends up being 2020 before they get 10nm going.

        I use an X1, and it's great (linux, with a Win10 VM guest for MS Office). Everything is great- except that you sometimes need to power it off manually. Less of a pain to netboot than the XPS13 too.

        @SoupRKnowva It seems some config was written after launch. There are tools for searching for application config files in the terminal. Need to figure out their location and see what is wrong when things dont work.

        The cool part later is when you start using automated scripts and what these can do.
