Re: Gene Wilder RIP

Yeah, I'm gutted. I've been dreading this day for a long time. I grew up watching all of his movies and idolized him for as long as I can remember. His style of humor was intelligent and sublime, and is something we could use more of. He always came across as the most gentle, caring, and sincere man...

Re: Watching OTA TV while traveling

Are you wanting to watch live TV or recorded? If you're talking about recorded TV, then Kodi is an option, as is Plex which I use quite frequently. If you're talking about live...then an InstaTV paired with an HDHomerun might be worth looking into.

Re: What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

Holy crap, JBI likes Opeth! If you haven't listened to it yet, check out the album Damnation . It's super mellow with clean vocals throughout, and yet it's my favorite Opeth album. Here's the full video of Lamentations (Live at Shepherd's Bush Empire 2003) , where they play Damnation in its entirety...

Check the root of the drive for a large pagefile.sys, swapfile.sys, and/or hiberfil.sys files. In order to see them, you'll have to select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" via Folder Options.

Since buying my PS4 in November, I've been playing a lot of Destiny. Despite its shortcomings, it's held me attention fairly well. Whenever I'm taking a break from Destiny, I've also been playing a bit of EA Sports UFC and I need to get around to finally finishing up Shadow of Mordor.

Re: Google now making a videogame console

This is really meant more as a steaming box than a video game console, though you can do some light gaming on it. It's like a Roku 3, FireTv, etc... True, but judging by that controller I'm thinking that they're looking more towards the console end of things. It's similar to the Amazon Fire TV, tho...

For a pilot, it wasn't bad. It felt a little bit forced and disjointed from time-to-time, but other than that I enjoyed it and I'm definitely looking forward to more.
