Well, if we're being honest, most licensed games are a truckload of suck. :P

I may have to nab that iron, ive been looking for a paddle tip soldering iron but all the ones ive seen have been pencil tipped. In the small amount of times I've tried to solder, I just can't get enough heat contact with a pencil tipped iron. Could have saved $200.00 on a monitor if I didn't fuck up changing the capacitor because of that. LESSON LEARNED! I should have practiced more on old pcb's I don't need anyway.

Another lesson for you chaps, don't buy samsung monitors, shit capacitors die after a year. I swear off that company now, no samsung monitors or phones in my house.

This video might help with the soldering stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtJ5gngTm-A. He gives plenty of very helpful tips and also links to an eBay search where you can buy practice kits to help you git gud. I've been thinking of picking up a few myself because my technique is a bit...well, it works, but I think it could be better. I'd much rather screw up something that I only paid a couple of dollars for.

Sucks to hear about the monitor. I have a Samsung display from around 2009 or so that's still kicking, but I have a feeling that might be when they actually gave a shit (or I got lucky...who knows). It's the last 16:10 display that I have, so I hope it hangs on for a while longer.

As far as their phones and tablets go, they can die in a fire. I decided to try a Samsung tablet (Galaxy Tab S 8.4) because they seem to have a decent reputation in the Android ecosystem and...god. Fuck that pile of junk. Not only did it cost more than a fucking iPad, but it was slow as molasses from day 1. Even simply rendering the home screen brought that piece of shit to its knees. Browsing the web on an old iPad 2 is a better experience than trying to use that thing. It would also overheat fairly quickly because Samsung has a fetish for putting quad-core processors in their tablets (in this case, it had a Exynos octa-core--a big.LITTLE design where one set of four cores could be active at once). Yeaaaah, there's a reason that most sane companies use dual- and tri-core processors in their phones and tablets. Not only can you attain higher clock speeds for each individual core, but it can maintain those speeds for a longer stretch of time.

I figured it was just the software, since that tablet, on a fresh boot, actually consumed as memory than a full desktop installation of Windows 10 (no, I'm not shitting you--both used something like 1.6-1.7GB, and I think it's safe to say that you can get way more accomplished with the Windows 10 installation). But, no. I flashed it with Cyanogen (basically as close as it would ever come to running stock Android) and it was only marginally better.

The best part are the Samsung fanboys. Some of them seriously think that Apple went out of their way to sabotage the Note 7 battery when they started exploding. I wish I were kidding. Then again, the simple story of Samsung failing to rewrite the laws of physics and thermodynamics isn't absolutely batshit insane, so I can see why they might reject that explanation.

Aaaand, this is dangerously getting close to ANGER thread territory, so I'm going to stop here.

No matter how fucking Berserk-Kaiser Ryu from Breath of Fire III I can act, what brings me back to Earth is that I have very loving and supporting friends that continue to lift me up, no matter how down I am.

<3
Nice to see another memorable name though.

So, I posted about it in the random shit thread, but I'm gonna post something a bit more complete and not written on my phone while drinking in a bar in Montreal.

So, for my birthday present, my girlfriend got me tickets to see Hiromi Uehara in Montreal. She played there last year and met Edmar Castaneda, a Colombian harpist, and she's been touring with him since then.

So, she decided to play this year at the Montreal jazz festival with him....and apparently they decided to record the entire show for a live CD. the show was fucking amazing, because they two of them really do seem to speak the same musical language. We got 2 encores, the second of which happened to my be ABSOLUTE favorite Hiromi song, which was the most perfect way to end the show.

We also found a fucking amazing asian bakery just down the street from our hotel. They had all sorts of amazing buns, and they also had a bunch of mochi and other assorted treats too. I've got some banana mochi roll things and an egg tart left over, and she has a "cheesecake" (which is like some sort of angel cake or something, very light fluffy stuff) and dorayaki (basically 2 small pancakes with red bean paste in the middle).

We also found the best sushi place we've been to so far there. Shit was expensive, but oh man it was good. She had a $12 glass of sake which was by far the best sake I've ever tasted, and I got 2 glasses of plum wine to go with the awesome sushi.

Just got back, and literally the ONLY shitty thing about the trip was the fucked up traffic I had to get through on the way back. We parked right in the middle of the entertainment district in Toronto, right in front of the Air Canada center, not far from the Rogers Center either. And we also made the mistake of coming back at 11:30 PM on Canada Day.... That was probably the busiest part of the entire fucking city.

All in all, it was a fucking awesome trip, and I hope I can go back again sometime.
This is going in my sig. :)

So Evo is happening as of this post.

Tekken happened a few hours ago and they announced a new guest character.

My thoughts is "i hope its not a king of fighters character since most of the characters except benimaru and geese are boring and lame"

GEESE MOTHER TRUCKING HOWARD

So they have akuma and geese, and they both look like they legit fit the tekken universe. They're 2 for 2 in my book, good shit namcops.

(ive been playing a lot of tekken and put more hours into it than street fighter 5 which came out feb 2016, im legit hoypppe)

大見解

hay guiz i fixed utf-8

Edit: Also, I installed the British language pack for our neighbo(u)rs up north, because why the hell not! <3 I know British English doesn't strictly equal Canadian English, but if you like extra u's and hate zeds you might prefer this.

To change your language from 'murican to Engluish, click "Profile" in the top menu bar, go to Modify Profile > Forum Profile, select "English British" from the "Preferred Language" dropdown, verify your password in the box at the bottom, and then click "Change Profile."

Achievement Unlocked

PAY OFF CAR

That's $2500 cash, most money I've handled in my life, only to go to finishing that car loan 5 minutes later.

Feels good though.

Funny thing, the lock in my passenger side door feel into the door(note, chevy aveos apparently have this problem a lot, my drivers side door had the same fucking problem when i first bought the thing)...and I bit my lip hard (crunch) eating lunch after that. NOT ALLOWED TO BE HAPPY NOPE NOPE NOPE

The good outweighs the bad at least, the door thing is minor and will be fixed monday.

Woo, congrats! On, uh, paying off the car, not the series of minor disasters that followed. ;D
