    I did a custom installation and haven't had any problems with it so far. But I've only played GW2 and haven't rebooted my computer. I might skip 364.51 and wait for next one since this one seems to have just as many issues as 364.47.

    Crappy Nvidia drivers? Really?

    Just keep on bashing the AMD drivers.

    AMD doesn't push out game-ready drivers nearly as fast as NVidia.

    I am being very serious. Spring skiing in Mammoth Mountain gives me about a 50% chance of going out in just a T-shirt, especially in the afternoon.


    Edit: Forecast for when I am skiing has the temps at around 8 degrees celcius - very T-shirt weather for skiing.

    The new company uniform. Extra warm for the summer.

    Needless to say that we did not ask for it, but it looks nice. The boss appreciates it that we look good. Sitting right next to the airco.

    We in the warehouse will stay warm.

    You know how when you're writing, you sometimes go back to the beginning and read what you wrote there and realize it's complete garbage compared to what you wrote recently and you're gonna have to completely rewrite it? No? Well, it happens to me all the time.

    I feel like the Matrix Architect. This will be the fourth time I've rewritten the damn dialogue and I'm becoming exceedingly efficient at it. :geezer:

    I'm not a writer, but if I look at my code from 5 years back, I start itching to redo the whole thing. I guess it's a good thing I don't have the time, and I still need to use the current code, otherwise I'd be tempted to restart and do it in a more suitable language as well.

    Yeah, it's the same with software code, but I have a better track record with the apps I write than with other stuff. I almost never look at my old code. Even if there's something I could potentially reuse, I can probably write it from scratch faster and more elegantly. Although I have written some pretty ingenious code in the past that I still use to this day.
