    I picked up Escape from Tarkov to play with my friend(s). It's almost fun but it's in beta and there's things they're doing that are unfun in the current patch. Scav vs scav fights are broken and ruin the scav experience. Normal PMC runs were okay at first (like a week ago) but that was because it had just wiped everyone's progression. It's already starting to become really unfun because of imbalanced playing field of people that play nonstop and casual playing.

    I haven't sat down and started yet (the hardest part) but I'm giving good thought to making a personal time clock page on my raspi instead of the flat file time clock program I used before the pandemic to track my hours at work.

    We're not required to track hours because I'm salary, but just like they wouldn't want me to cheat them out of time, I don't want them to cheat me out of time.

    I already have the pi running lamp for tracking my finances with just a shitty php/msql set of pages. And one page to wol my computer if I would need into it for anything during the day.

    I had already played brookhaven and beat saber, they're great. Pavlov i grabbed because it was so cheap, and devil daggers is just interesting.

    As someone who never played it before but only watched people play a little bit, it's was fantastic having my first real experience be in vr. I can't fathom not being able to just point my hands at stuff to shoot it. And even with that I still haven't 100%'ed it. I love it so much.

    None of this makes sense to me. They're the same word with the same meaning... The only difference is that invitation cannot be a verb like invite can.

    I work a standard 40hr/wk job and I don't get it, I feel like I have no free time. I have the weekend but it's like a day and a half at most. I don't know how people would have a life outside of work ever. Get home at 530 and if I sneeze facing the wrong way, I look back at the clock and its already 9, sleep time. Fuck that man.

    Unrelated to the main topic but related to something you said, drinking to help sleep is not helping your sleep. It may help you go to sleep but the quality of sleep you get is worse. Same with weed.

    I used the Pleasantly Inexpensive Rapid Application Test Environment method to demo Beat Saber fully expecting to dislike it (because I was not a fan of audioshield) but was pleasently surprised. If it goes on sale that would be nice, but if not I'll still probaby grab it because it was definitely entertaining.

    Yep. I'm not big on confrontation and I don't often know enough about a side I've taken to fully 100% cover myself incase I would need to so I often skip it. I've made a post where about midway through while I was researching I realized that I barely held the stance I was originally holding. It was rough but i had actually learned stuff, so that was nice I guess.

    I think if people feel so strongly that they disagree then they should comment and describe why. If it's not that strong, then it doesn't really matter. Of course people disagree, disagreement is the most common thing ever.

    I think not having a downvote (aka disagree) really helps calm me down when I don't like something here. If I read something that I don't like, I instinctually want to downvote it but then realize that I can't and would have to comment, and the thought of being rude to someone because they hold a difference idea/stance than I do chills me out.
