Historical inaccuracies aside am I the only one who thinks that every single one of these 'pieces' looks like absolute dogshit and not worth even a quarter of the asking price? That 'blackhawk' box for example just looks incredibly poorly made

Honestly I thought the desk in and of itself was pretty cool and might make for a good centerpiece of an office depending on your profession, but the majority of the stuff is terrible and ugly.

The homemade desk effort is absolutely fine - it's been homemade for a tiny fraction of the price. The professionally produced items look about as good and for 10 times as much money.

That flower thing is just so loving lazy - presumably its supposed to be something remarkable in the context of tens or hundreds of inhabitable worlds and their flora. So just pick the loudest purple in photoshop and fire up the ol' fill tool


And what someone earlier said about how interesting it is to hear a true visionary like Carmack just ramble on is true - I've just sat through a couple of hours of him talking about poo poo that was really nothing new to me and it was still interesting. He also had this to say about scope creep:

Also I am in the middle of an exploration run in elite and the way you scan solar systems is by unleashing a mighty paarp that travels for billions of miles. I'm sure this is pure coincidence but I choose to believe it is deliberate on the part of elite devs.

Tbh the man of many aliases' willingness to just say 'yeah I spent four grand on a nonexistent video game, and I'm happy with that' seems more respectable than Sarsapariller getting a refund and then seeing a spaceship jpeg under a cardboard box held up by a stick and buying back in for $2.5k

seriously Sarsapaparillere come back to us. you may get mocked now and again for a bad decision but no-one actually thinks you're a bad person because of it.

poo poo, Derek. I don't consider myself OCD, but everyone I've ever lived with has commented on my specific rules for loading the dishwasher. Bowls go on the top rack, with one space between them. Dishes on the bottom, small dishes next to each other, large dishes with a space between. There's just a certain way things need to be arranged in order to be cleaned properly. Silverware is separated by type into the baskets, handle end up, so you can grab them out in easy handfuls to put in the drawer.

I'm also specific about cleaning my glasses, but can't get into buying disposables; best I've found is old soft-knit underwear. When you get a bunch of crud in the edges of your frames, you can stick them in the dishwasher.

Buy a small ultrasonic cleaner, you will NOT regret it

So are CIG's offices getting raided by the Feds on Wednesday?

That's the only reason I can think of that it's important that they don't crack the code before then, so they don't shred/burn all the evidence.

But Derek said Erin knows, and I'm assuming that applies to the rest of the top tier executives. They probably shredded the actual accounting books a long time ago.

Gaaaah I'm so frustrated.

i don't know about the US but in the UK I think in the case where evidence has been deliberately destroyed juries get instructed to assume the absolute worst implications that evidence might have pointed to
