some minutes of time) I can pay a mil or few ofcourse. :)

Hi You dear linquistics out there!

If I do get nice help that helps me, I have some gold here laying around. :)

if you need more info on the idea, then you are overthinking it.
if you are familiar with any tabletop or pc/console rpgs, then something
a newly created character could have.  something maybe up to level 10-ish
on aard, perhaps?

Major create me some green and some green.
Major create anything I damn well please.
Yeah, gimme major create, without much pondering.
If I thought about it more I'd probably come up
with something else, but off the bat, there ya go.

I would definitely choose mage hand.

It would also be nice for lazy people like me :P

Thursday, April 12, 2018 @ 23:59
had a fascinating conversation at my local gaming store about this:

if you could have one spell, usable once per day, what would it be?
and perhaps more importantly, why?
and of course, what kind of impact do you think it would have on
the world you live in?

we were discussing specifically low-level spells, comparable to
d&d 1st-level stuff, but higher-level might be worth considering.

anyone have any thoughts to share on the subject?

On an unrelated note, I recommend trying GamePipe. Simplifies moving Steam
games across library folders.

>Games>ssd.
 
This varies.  Especially when you can add a second drive library to Steam and
move games easily through properties > local files, there's no reason to clog
up space (even with plenty to spare) on games that don't need it.
 
ESO is a good example- you may save a second or two load times, but it's not
worth the 60gb to put it there vs install to HDD.  Did similar with Plex Media
Server's appdata folders for all the metadata it stores.

Definitely move OS at least.  Performance gains on games vary, keep the ones
played often and with substantial improvement on the SSD and put others on  the
older HDD.
 
As far as how to do a clean install, you can grab the Media Creation Tool from
MS to create an image, and your hardware config is stored on their servers for
reactivation.  Full instructions are at https://bit.ly/2IN7W2e .

I just upgraded my PC and put a new SSD into it. Really excited to try it out.
So, I have a few questions.

1) My OS starts up pretty quickly. The SSD is 500gb. Should I just put larger
programs / games onto the SSD & leave the OS onto the HDD?

2) If no to 1, how would I go about moving the OS to the SSD without the disc?
I got the auto-upgrade to Windows 10.

3) If yes to 1, do I simply drag & drop the files from the programs I want
from one drive to the next?

Thanks in advance.

I have an interesting review about this movie: the movie is awesome and it
sucks at the same time! :)

It is a visual delight and the IMAX experience is a must have, considering the
number of details you need to find during almost the entire movie. Said that,
you probably need to watch it twice to find everything that you want to see
considering all references.

Why it sucks: the book have several references that was cut from the movie for
the obvious reason: IP. They did the best to match what you read in the book,
but a lot of them are missing and sometimes they did a poor choice in their
substitution (there are obvious reasons to not see Marvel references on a
Warner movie, and goes on).

Anyway, for me it worth each second in the cinema (this one is really made to
watch in the big screen).

half of my family saw it opening day, or will see it then... I can't
go to movies so I don't really track them... but they're usually very
good at picking movies that they see on opening night.

I did see the commercials and it looked pretty awesome to me.

It's more of a social outlet for me that happens to have fun game-like things
that I can pursue however I want to. Then again, that seems to be my approach
to games in general, so maybe they're not mutually exclusive.

Ingress and Pokemon Go, at least where I play, are more goal-oriented and you
have to pay a price for being a "lone wolf" in that context. You can't log on
and just chat because that's not catered for in the PoGo UI and somewhat of a
hassle in the Ingress UI.

So yeah, it kind of is a "way of life" to log on to Aard, do things the way I
want to, and chat with friends from all around the world. Apart from lasertag
(and maybe mafia) there isn't really much I want to do well at for now.

Barring some smartass reply like "it's a way of life" or something, I'm curious
to see what justification can be made for this... especially from the same post
that includes Ingress/Pokemon Go.

Sorry it took so long to respond. Yes, these websites pay. Or rather, 
the people on the websites pay. How much depends on the complexity 
of the jobs. The websites broker the introduction, and have a
mechanism to transfer the payment.
