    [quote<]SteamVR is coming to Macβ€”and Apple says it will actually work @ Ars Technica[/quote<] What do they think they're doing with that API situation, anyway? Getting it to be a great gaming experience for users requires making it better for devs, too. There's already some API juggling going on here because the consoles don't support Vulkan, but if they think that means I'm eager to add Metal to the list, they're dead wrong. At least we're not stuck with that hot mess of an implementation Apple calls OpenGL anymore, but considering MacOS's garbage reputation as a gaming platform (and its consequently low market share in such circles), it seems like they're going to need to do more than just continue making Metal better. I wonder how MoltenVK is doing these days?

    Luckily I happen to live in a town that still supports a drive-in theatre that made the investment to convert to digital projection. Four screens and a twinbill on each screen. Open on the weekends, and their snack bar is no slouch (try the onion rings). [i<]Fury Road[/i<] just worked so much better on a drive-in screen and GotG 2 (late) is doubled up with Wonder Woman (early) this coming weekend when the monsoon rains plaguing us for the past few days are supposed to be gone. Both of those sound like perfect drive-in flicks. Now to find the mosquito net I bring to the drive-in and drape over the sunroof and open windows. Others look at me quizzically as I deploy it, but instantly understand what I'm getting at.

    There is only one drive-in theater still operating in NJ.

      Man, wish I was closer to Vineland. I’m further up near Trenton.
      I’d like to show my wife and kids what a drive-in was like when I was kid in the 70’s.

        • davidbowser
        • 2 years ago

        Yeah. Not knocking Vineland, but it is someplace you stop for food or gas on your way to Wildwood or Cape May. Not really a destination so to speak.

    On the subject of movies, Dr. Strange is now on Netflix for your viewing enjoyment.

      Sweet. I am watching that tonight.

          • CuttinHobo

          Does he overcome obstacles as well? Man, I may as well not even bother now. πŸ™

            Sorry! Good thing I didn’t mention his crisis of conscience and self-doubt…Dang, I should have warned about that one too! Sorry again!

            Wow here we go. Popcorn in the pot.

            Neither did you mention whether the world would be saved.

            • Neutronbeam
            • 2 years ago

            THAT would be a spoiler, and I’ve said too much already.

    • Bumper

    I need to get me some of that teen blood.

      From the neck?

        “It has to be warm blood straight from the vein.” -Damon Salvatore.

        • Bumper

        The wrist will do fine, but I’d prefer the superior vena cava.

          • oldog
          • 2 years ago

          Speaking as someone who has sampled blood from the vena cava; it is rather difficult to do.

          The direct approach requires a thoracotomy but it’s also possible with a Swan-Ganz catheter or the like.

          Not recommended for amateur vampires.

          As any Red Cross nurse will tell you peripheral veinpuncture is preferable and the wrist is not a good location.

    Nice to see the encouraging words on BattleTech; I helped Kickstart that game and looking forward to my backer’s copy showing up in Steam. Long live the Federated Suns!

      Busted! I’ve got my own photos lined up for the next two shortbreads though. πŸ˜‰

        You should own and maintain your own classic Chevy in pristine condition for just such an occasion! πŸ˜€

      So it’s pretty much real McDonalds food then?
