Sure thing.   If nothing else I'll set them up on the current computer.  Also: does anyone know of any places that sell solid state external drives?  I've got a big disk drive trying to crap out on me over here and I'm pretty much done with that.  It's that or save things to physical disk and let's face it.  10Tb of info is going to be a LOT of disks.

Microcenter / Best Buy / Staples are your choices if you want to buy it at at store.

 

SSDs above 1TB in capacity aren't quite economical yet though.  For externals I use 2-4TB HDDs since they're incredibly cheap.

Misterbee is right. 2TB SSDs seem to have their prices frozen in time. It gets worse at higher capacities. SSDs should be used for files that you need the improved speed for like games. If you merely preserving data, traditional drives are the way to go.

in my search of Batwoman commentary/vids she started showing up lately in recommended videos; her latest is even better than ever🤣

 



Jokes aside, alright.  She's slamming on it pretty good. I haven't watched any of the batwoman series so I cannot personally attest to it, but watching the vid shows me that I have probably saved me from a few trips to the psych ward.

 

..............I bet you thought I was gonna make some joke about how her teeth have as much cleavage as her chest, but I didn't. 😜

I guess it isn't what I wanted to hear, but it is at least something.  I was hopping that the SSDs were more stable since there would be fewer moving parts, but if they're just going to crap up too then there's no reason to buy them.  Ironically, I got a deal on an 8tb which I'm using for the time being to hold things.  I'll have to get whatever currently has the highest capacity for regular disk and make backups.  I'm sure there's something better than DVDs by now for saving stuff.

SSDs are great and the price has gone down a lot, but they're still not viable cost-wise at sizes over 2TB.

 

A 1TB SSD can be had for something like 80 bucks.  A 2TB SSD costs somewhere in the neighborhood of 250-300.  For an external model I'd imagine it costs a bit more.

 

If you're trying to back up over 10TB of files SSDs are going to be prohibitively expensive.  Cheap HDDs are going to be the way to go.  A 4TB external HDD only costs $120 or so.

GEARS 5, though....
A little while ago I finally played Horde on *Inconceivable* difficulty for the first time....holy shit that was awesome, man... I was playing as Jack so I probably had an easier time than the others though, but ohhhhh it was so good.  Unfortunately, of all the times I didn't have my "Optimizer" card equipped...of course it just happened to be the night I had a really good team and playing on *that* difficulty....several waves later I remembered suddenly that I didn't have that card equipped!  I could've been generating wayyyy more power; my card for that is level 5, I think 

 

 

The Sentinels are so damn dangerous though... quite a few times we got so close to being wiped out just because one of those flew into the base...and on that difficulty (*ALL the modifiers on), those things take you down in literally 1 second or so....if they even see you and fire a shot, you're going down immediately, like some "Halo on Legendary" shit.  A Sentinel (+ a boss) finally destroyed us on Wave 40. 😔

That sounds like about what I've seen.  So I'll go with plan "B":  Wait until black friday and snag a good deal or two.  Also:  May have to use internals over externals, which means the next computer will now be a Desktop.  I'll check on xidax and xotic, but if anybody has better places I'll check them too.

@Darc_Requiem  I saw a few vids earlier about Kotaku.  All I can say is what has been said before:  Get woke, GO BROKE.  I don't know if the new boss can turn things around, but I'd say pulling the politics out of your sports would be a good move.  Jeremy of the Quartering also did a vid on it.  As you may guess, he ain't exactly shedding tears over their current plight.

Today is an appropriate day to start a new subseries.

Happy Halloween!

 

Batman's Greatest Moments...

 

The beast knew how to bring itself about. It was out of my control. It only needed one more chemical to complete the process.....

lol.  Actually, this was the best time to bring that one out.  In the game DCUO, we just got a new treat for the latest DLC.  We end up fighting a giant-sized man-bat covered in metal.  A gift from the Batman who Laughs.  They say it's an 8-man fight, but that's pure BS.  if you take 8 people in there, you're gonna end up needing 8 graves.  bring everybody or stay out.

DCUO is still going?  Forgot all about that game.

 

How is it?

ha, I should get back to DCUO sometime... I made 2 heroes on there; 1 was designed as a super vampire (of course; super-speed...and I forgot what his fighting style/ability was)....the other was a shit-monster character; his main power was morphing, I remember.... he was able to turn into a little brown doggy and a brown gorilla so far.  I have a new alternate Live profile at this point so I may just create new heroes and villains, actually....or new versions of those guys.

 

ohooooo I love a topic that steps on some people's toes... 
"Men funnier than women, according to a study..."

 
I don't think we really needed a little study to back that shit up but whatever 🤣Really, you ask the average person what are the funniest comedians of all time in their opinion...most of the time that list is going to be 99% dudes, like George Carlin, Richard Pryor, maybe Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, etc.  Men and women will be throwing out the same big names.... and we all know it's men that *HAVE* to have some kind of charm and wit to "function" properly in modern society--getting good jobs, networking with important people, and yes...the mating game (the death knell for any dude's "game" is to be BORING.  A boring dude will get NO play compared to the dudes that make her laugh.)....so naturally, we would be more adept at it.  

 

...and actually, I would definitely prefer it if more women were funny, at least in terms of social interaction and the "mating game".  That's definitely more interesting and attractive to a girl that has all the personality of a stone, always unamused by everything and taking herself way too seriously.
