    Speaking of which, I finally was able to get that upgrade to an M9. They didn't have an M8 at Verizon, and I'm still skeptical on what the hell EDGE is gonna do that makes the phone free.

    But I have an M9 now, so that's pretty sweet.
    Also, got a 64GB microSD (how the hell are those things only $24 now? that's insane!), a clear case, and a power bank. I'm set for a while.

    Edit: Okay, apparently EDGE actually isn't a lie, since we have a 10GB plan. The 10GB cost gets the money for verizon, so they still make profit when they practically give the phone to us for free.

    I feel like the new forum layout isn't really optimized for computer monitors, since you have to scroll down to get to the Off-Topic forum. With the previous layout, you could see everything without having to scroll down. I also quite liked having more sub-forums, since we didn't get two week old threads cluttering up the front page. I'm all for directing traffic to the official site instead of sketchy websites with stolen content and re-uploads, I just hope it doesn't invite people into derailing on-topic discussions and trolling. I think it was a good decision on the developers' part overall, but we'll have to see how this goes in the long run.

    I think there is probably a reason why off topic has been moved off the bottom of a 1080p screen :p

    I still down own a 1080p display. On my 768 vertical res displays, the old forums didnt fit and were cut off just below the showrooms (in drive only section not public showrooms). I therefore find its no less optimal than before.


    Going from steam hardware surveys though, got about 40% of peeps with 1080p or higher displays.
    about 5% around 1680*1050, 7% around 1600*900, 5% around 1440*800 and 27% around 1366*768 (my res on laptop).

    Only 3% at 1360*768 which is my desktops display res (shitty TV).

    So, I really like this video.



    But here's why; Most people today tune an MX-5 or a Fiesta ST or a Mustang (in the case of Hot Rod Mag) for autocross. But this guy, Jay, tuned a Prius for it. I like that, it's really different.

    Was this car designed for this? No. Should it exist? No. Am I glad it does? Yes, even with all of its tire rub and terrible ride. And, if you read the comments, it really describes modern enthusiasts. They hate this idea simply because it's the Prius and we're "supposed to hate it". Do I like the Prius? No, I'd rather be set on fire than own one, but I'm glad someone though, "Shit, why not put suspension and chassis stiffening on it?".

    TRD already sell their own trim prius in the japanese market.
    Plus quite a few bodykits, springs, exhausts and other mods exist for it in japan.

    So, after 3 days with NFS Rivals, I'm already about 60% done with the cop career and about 30% done with the racer career.
    Is that normal or do I just play the game way to often and/or way to long?

    If I lived anywhere near LA, one of the first things I'd do after I get my license would be to take a car into the LA river.

    Exactly! Why not put handling parts on it, since you can't make it faster.

    Oh, I start that in a couple weeks.

    August + Ohio = Humidity

    Humidity * Band = Death

    Death / Band ^ Age = sqrt(School Year)

    Just make sure you take frozen water or something like that with you in a rucksack to practice and events. Quite a bit of it will be melted as you practice but it will keep the water much cooler than the ambient temperature which is super nice.

    If I right click on the Steam shortcut in my taskbar, I can launch my 3 most recent games.

    I did not know this.
