Re: COVID 19 Thread

I teach college classes which have been moved completely online... So work wise, things are a bit awkward (it's really different lecturing to a computer screen and webcam than it is standing in front of a lecture hall), but otherwise work is still there. I'm spending a lot less on gas and food beca...

Is Yu Suzuki happy? That's all that matters.

Re: COVID 19 Thread

It's usually quiet where I live. Tons of houses and an ever-increasing amount of car traffic but not a lot of people outside. Everyone's at work, so no one's around. The past few weeks, it's been the exact opposite. Car traffic is way down. People are hanging out in their yards, riding bikes, kids a...

That looks nice. It's pretty consistent with the DC aesthetic.

Re: Is anyone here into Bitcoin?

All I know is I want to breakeven and GTFO. But I think at this point it was to greedy of an idea. I should've bolted last month when it surged slightly. Now my portfolio is worth 20% of what I invested over two years ago. I understand the technology of digital currency is cool and countries are ge...

Just delivered at SOA Burbank office, (they've got a few satellite offices.)put in good word for the community. You guys just keep fucking thinking. Ima post the Sonic statue pic in a bit. Also used my 401k to purchase 23 shares of stocks at around $4 a pop before the movie released. SEGA/SAMMY/ATL...

Re: Is anyone here into Bitcoin?

All I know is after a little bit of rise, there is a hell of a lot of fall. There is certainly a lot of volatility. The amount of wealth invested in cryptocurrencies is still a fraction of a fraction of the wealth invested in more traditional markets. They are also largely unregulated by design. Th...

Re: What does everyone do for work?

A lot of it seems to depend on what kind of adviser/mentor you end up having. I've heard plenty of horror stories from PhD students that end up with advisers that just constantly pile more and more crap on them and never let them complete their own research... And then, I've seen people who skate t...

Re: What does everyone do for work?

For the past few years, I've been teaching at the university I'm attending while I finish up with my Ph.D. in Computer Science, specifically I've been teaching the required upper-level CS undergraduate course on Operating Systems. One of these days I'll finish with my Ph.D. and get a real job, but ...

Re: Traveling

New England is pretty cool, especially the northern half. It's not all too big and fun to get lost on the weird, antiquated rural roads. Wait until around May or June if you don't like the cold.
It would be fun to go a little further and visit the Canadian Maritimes.

Re: DCEmu Decides the 2020 US Presidential Election

The Democrats have really disappointed me in the way they've treated President Trump. I don't ever remember the Republicans acting that way with Obama. I'm tempted to vote for Trump just out of spite. That being said, there is one Democrat that impresses me and that's Tulsi Gabbard. I'd vote for he...

Re: DCEmu Decides the 2020 US Presidential Election

Well, the only person on this list that I don't immediately have a negative opinion of is Andrew Yang, and that's not exactly an endorsement for president, he's just an interesting guy I'll wait and see what third party candidates end up on the ballot I guess, but I'm not too enthused with the Libe...

Is anyone here into Bitcoin?

Every now and then I throw some spare cash into crypto and PMs (mostly silver). I know Lightning is somewhat controversial, but I think it would compliment on-chain tx a lot more than it would ruin profitability for miners. LN has the potential to scale and provide substantial liquidity and speed fo...

Re: DCEmu Decides the 2020 US Presidential Election

My post from 2015 aged well. I think Trump's gonna win solely on the basis that he successfully unified the Republican party and it's voter base to the point that NeverTrumpers stick out like sore thumbs. The Democrat side is too polarized in itself and none of the candidates seem strong enough to u...

Re: What does everyone do for work?

I did a mix of IT and random jobs (restaurants, warehouses, convenience stores, etc) til around 2015. Near the end, I managed to hit some "oil" in terms of IT work. The money was great, but the workload was intense. I usually drove 150 miles a day - many times 200 miles+. All that got me burned out ...

Re: Dreamcast Classic

I mostly want a comprehensive Sega arcades compilation, in a format like the current Mega Drive collection. That would be a great idea if it was pulled off right. Licensing troubles with 3rd party IPs would be the toughest problem to sort out. I came across this random thing recently: http://ebook....

Re: Dreamcast Classic

Mini consoles of 6th gen stuff is going to be a much harder sell I think. There is a different kind of nostalgia for 8/16 bit consoles that the 5th and 6th gen consoles never captured. Personally I'd love to see a Saturn made, just because so many of those titles were never ported to anything at al...
