  • LongLiveA$AP
  • Chance the Rapper - Acid Rap

I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong, but I don't get the allure of Acid Rap. I downloaded it, listened to it a couple of times and it hasn't grown on me. Are there any incredible tracks or anything on it? I've seen that much hype for it that I want to like it. I haven't listened to Yeezus yet but Long.Live.A$AP. really did impress me. It's probably my favorite album from the genre so far.

As for my favorite all round album thus far, my answer is going to be OutRun by Kavinsky. The tracks from his EPs are absolutely stellar and while the other new tracks aren't on the same level, they're still very good. Most people seem to have preferred Random Access Memories, but I like Kavinsky's '80s vibe.

@pr1mus: OutRun is a great album, but I preferred his older EPs. They just had catchier tunes I think, but I could see OutRun being a grower and something I'll like more with time.

It's almost traditional with me to finish Call of Duty titles in a single sitting since they've got short campaigns now.

  • Call of Duty 4
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (did a speedrun of the story for a friend for the achievements, years ago)
  • Possibly a few other titles too

@superfriend: I remember doing the exact same thing with MW2. I rented it, finished it in one sitting and then went online with a friend. I got the game at about 4:30pm on release day, and was playing online by 9pm with a friend and discussing the campaign.

@oscar__explosion: I haven't really tried. I saw that and fired a bug report over since I wasn't sure what to do with it.

I've been considering adding bits to the wiki here and there, although I'm encountering a new issue when I go to do so. I go to edit, and when I'm done working on something and save it, I am told to explain my edits so they can be checked by a moderator. I'm not sure what the problem might be, but I thought this restriction was dropped at 1,000 Wiki Points? I'm on 88,000 points at this stage, but I've also considered that it might just be a change made with the new update rather than a bug.

Anyone out there who has experienced this as well? I'm quite interested to see if it's a normal thing or not.

Yes and no. I eat breakfast on schooldays, but on the weekends I normally wake up for lunch. I don't have a consistent eating pattern when I think about it.

It's a shame that the footage is faked. I really wanted to believe that was a new Getaway game.

Non-sub here. Gah, wish I could get a glimpse at the new site. Editing wikis is fun, and I miss it.

Unicomp's the only company still making a buckling spring board, to my knowledge. Buckling Springs are unique to IBM's boards, and Unicomp produced successors. If you want those springs, then you have no choice unless you can find an old Model M. As someone using a Das Keyboard with Cherry MX Blues I've no complaints with this thing. There are also some boards with Alps (or ALPS) switches, but they're another kettle of fish entirely. Mechanical boards of any kind are hard to dislike. I haven't played with an M or a Unicomp made keyboard, but if you can get your hands on one, and you want it? Do it.

I have landline in my house which goes virtually unused, and a mobile phone as well. The landline is there for.... I have no idea, to be quite honest. It's just there because.
