It's all fun and games until Uncle Vlad shuts off the gas pipe.

This might be the hottest day of the year so I'm off to an Inferno Hike in the dunes.

Spacekdet you need crowd funding so you can go to Burning Man. I see normal cars and trucks in the live stream. I thought only art cars were allowed. How long does it last?

Officially lasts a week. Livestream has been up and running pretty much the whole time.

I don't mind the view from Camp Envy.

The Man burns the second Saturday- that's the party for the living.
The Temple (the volcano -looking structure) burns the second Sunday- that's for remembrance, and letting go.


Normal vehicles are sometimes DPW, artists, pyro techs, public safety, & yeah, probably people just tooling around.
I think it's discouraged but sometimes a shortcut is just a shortcut.

I'm trying to get a used gtx 1070 ti in auctions on ebay. Occasionally one sells almost within my small budget. Almost. I'm not sure if my short term plan is to get one or is a medium term plan to wait a few months hoping prices will go down.

Of note: used 1080 ti's look like better bargains if you can spend that much.

I still have my old NVIDIA Geforce GTX660 It's about six years old now and running on an even older i7.

My thoughts if I wanted a card that costs as much as an Xbox, I'd get the Xbox for gaming.

The old GTX 660 handles all the graphics I come across in 3D Graphics software.

I don't game anymore, so maybe that skews my vision.
