Getting The Gang Back Together For 76?
« on: June 12, 2018, 08:05:51 AM »
Are we going to set up an Unwashed Village in 76?

I think I've got an old cardboard box full of pointy sticks and pomegranates down in my cellar which I could try to dig out.

There is an Unwashed Village steam group we could use for matchmaking with Villagers.

Aw crap. I forgot that we are in the age of multiple platforms. I'll be on Xbox.

Yeah, if I get this, it'll be for steam. I recently changed jobs and used my unused vacation to buy a sweet new gaming rig that Liz and I put togehter. (I wasn't planning on going for a GTX 1080 originally, but I was able to snag one for $615 (US) which put it pretty much the best deal I was going to find for a graphics card for the quality. (Fuck Ethereum in the ear!) And since I got a GPU that supported 4K, I naturally had to get a monitor that did so as well. So after paying more than I originally planned, I have a rig that can run pretty much any game out there at full graphics capability.

BTW, welcome back. I find it interesting that of the three of us posting in this thread, I'm the newest member of the UV.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Not bad for the price of the 1080 with how bad the prices are getting due to bitcoin mining, I need to upgrade my system now as well since it's 10 years old and it's starting to reach the maximum capacity I'm going to get out of it. Glad you got a new one, enjoy those crisp 4k graphics!

As for the last line....lol some things you just don't think about anymore :P

I'd be down.
As for the Collector's edition, I may need to pass this time. 200 dollary doos for a helmet is a bit much
But it'll help

Bitcoin isn't the problem anymore, since ASIC rigs are cheaper and faster at mining Bitcoins due to the type blockchain technology Bitcoin employs.

Ethereum is the big culprit these days. And from what I understand ASIC style rigs don't support the type of blockchain Ethereum and its ilk use, so GPU's (especially AMD) are still being used for that.
