    One vote for YNAB here - my savings rate has gone up drastically (to be fair, started near zero outside retirement savings). The "giving every dollar a job" approach really clicked.

    Thanks again for Automod, really changed the game way back when. Can you expand on why you disagree with the move to a GUI? Is it just a concern about introducing lower flexibility?

    Why do you think Mass Effect is overrated? If anything I think the blowback from 3 soured a lot of people on 1 and 2 in retrospect, which I think are fantastic games.

    At this point it might make sense to wait for Persona 5: The Royal - expected this spring. Will basically be the base game + an additional party member and an additional (semester?) of content.

    They worked that out by giving the squatters on the rights some kind of producer credits. It's going to be a show on Amazon Prime, and they just started filming a few weeks ago.

    They released the first table reading, and I'm cautiously optimistic (and by cautiously I mean I already have extremely high hopes I expect to not quite be lived up to). The showrunner seems to really love the books so I have hope, though obviously there will be many challenges translating a series like WoT to the screen.
