  1. hi all... so I have a year old comp.  no monitor, but plugged via hdmi into a flat screen. just got CW.  it wont start - says graphical issue, needs 1024x768 32 bit to work. thing is DCS, squad, hell let loose, etc all run nearly maxed out just fine. Indeed more games than that run fine.  Is the issue somehow Im using an HDMI cable?  I cant think of what else.  I can provide exact comp specs if needed.. I have my resolution higher than 1024...

    Anyways I made a ticket.  I realllly hope its not the hdmi issue as then I have to ask for a refund as it is my monitor. =/

    (Id greatly prefer to just have it work)

    any idears?

    I will be riding a motorcycle in late spring, all summer and early fall. In winter I will use public transport or car. It's funny, but our winters have become warmer in european zone, the last cold winter in my memory is 2007-2008. During the service, I always took vacation in the winter of december-january and came home. And I was surprised that there was very little snow and warm enough for winter -5 - 0 ¬į C. Sometimes there is ¬†very heavy snowfall for a couple of days.

     

    Unfortunately, we also have a lot of aggressive drivers who don't like motorcyclists. I think this is a problem everywhere.

     

    P.S. I have a small dream to travel with friends in Europe by car or in another way.

    If you ever want to come.to america visit me in boston. Ill take ya to some clubs get ya.some women. Marijuanas legal..

    Good times

    After pandemic, I want to learn to ride a motorcycle myself, just right for the city. Be careful next time.

    its amazing, (riding - some of the best fun i ever had) i didnt break anything. but my right leg, a lot of tendons ripped. i go back to hospital soon... they dont know how many. but.. im pretty messed up lol

    my right hand too.. it was the 2nd crash. both i didnt hit anything, it slid , from black ice then 2nd time was bizarre i think it was the wet roads but... idk i wasnt braking and coasting to a stop

    i love it but now the back tire got messed up and I think im just putting her up for the winter.  the problems finding work because of covid are becoming really bad, and the government aid, already cut severely in july, is gonna end soon.  i may be homeless in january frankly.  ill be fine, ive been through worse. but not good times

    on happier subjects even mopeds, are great for cities. but if you live anywhere in russia that has cold winters you wont be able to ride it without too much danger in the winter. the tires are too small. so if you live where winters are cold you need a proper motorcycle and to talk to someone more knowledgeable than me about how to prepare your tires for snow conditions, even then riding in ice isnt  a good idea. if you have to brake hard and stop quickly motorcycles and mopeds tend to slide way harder than cars and for you or me that = death or injury

    also road rage and asshole drivers are very dangerous to you. i had a womans nylon stocking i put some metal washers in the bottom of. if someone was doing road rage stuff that could cause me to crash id 'whip' the nylon at a car window of theirs. itd swing so fast you cant see it and there window owuld shatter. theyd be shocked and confused  and id keep driving. yes thats illegal too lol

    doing some labor work a few years ago in a realllllly old building in boston that in the 19th century would have been one big house. 

    A bookcase was slightly ajar, the occupants must have found it, it opened to a stairwell and an entire hidden room.

    It was one of the coolest little things I ever found.  The hinges on the bookcase were relatively new so it was a more recent addition or upkept by the tenants.

    I sort of doubt that it was a recent addition - unless they cut off part of a room, but I  think it was more for booze in the 20s or drugs later than say runaway slaves.

    The building  was way too old however for someone to legally have had that built in. I just dont see it.  Anyways FWIW.

    Its literally 1 block away from Mass ave and Boylston St aka where Berklee College of Music is.

    I prefer Steve Martin's in My Blue Heaven.  What is the difference between a light bulb and a pregnant woman?

     

    I think Germany has some more important issue to worry about at the moment.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/03/world/europe/germany-military-neo-nazis-ksk.html?searchResultPosition=4

    I think its overblown

    theyre just underrstandably touchy

    IMO the US military has a bigger neo nazi issue

    Ive looked into it and its heavily concentrated almost entirely in one region and small part of it in eastern germany

    however this is the result of the PC SJW overstepping. even I who dont give a damn what anyone does knew theyd gone to far when they said anyone can use any bathroom. they tried to move too fast. middle america wasnt ready to go THAT far yet. now we'll be set back decades.

    however maybe its a good thiing. I remember at age 8 being  taught about kwanzaa. when the teacher said it was 'invented' in the 70s I thought ' wtf how is a religion invented and ten yrs older than me?" as I  got older the other religions became equally silly but my point remains. US students had POC inventors and famous figures have their ethnic or color blasted  on us.  HOWEVER if say some guy invented the peanut  was black we'd hear all about it and it was EMPHASIZED.

    however mocking race was a no no. hilarious aganst whites noone else

    then around 2k it was white males.   nooone else. white males

    key and peele who are funny (2 comedians) do white face and get rave reviews. the movie white chicks is black men in drag in white  face. if the inverse happens someone loses their career AND socially are ostracized, though it may have been 3 decades  ago (still poor taste but..)

    people wonder at the obvious backlash. its because the nation is still majority white and half of them are males. And it gets old being **** on..  Especially when youre the go to blame for everything everytime.

    White privilege etc, all nonsense to me. sure it happens. sure racism happens.

    but if a 'woke' person whose entire world view revolves arnd race are they not as racist as the neo nazis?

    Im telling you now, classism is the real game now. the racism is a game, we're a cat and its the 1%s lazer pointer.

    Definitely easier to lecture/preach to others when one is dishing it out...  Life looks a whole lot different when you're receiving.  

    i will say this. 

    first I dont support nazis or like hitler

    ppl make allusions to certain politicians being hitler now. hitlers lifef would have broken most people. I can see why he became messianic and got the complex - he went from failed art student and bum, to soldier, to blind and soldier of a defeated empire, to party head, to head of the 3rd Reich.   Thatd break most people, WW1 alone or homelessness for years in 1900s Vienna which Im sure wasnt easy. 

    also during the war, he got to sleep in bed, because his job was so dangerous, and he performed in a role tat would rtoutinely put him under fire for four years.  

    it seems almost like hitler was the guy who keeps rolling 7s and wont leave when his friends try to pull him away and loses it all finally. he believed his own bs - the general staff was right all along and freak chance had hitler win - rhineland, czechs,, poles, france, everything basically to the last major ' i was right ' - the hold fast order dec 41..

    No. Just local humor in the US. Many people call their states the People's Republic of California, People's Republic of New Jersey etc.. The first time I ever heard it used was by a friend who lives and rural Massachusetts i.e. People's Republic of  Massachusetts. Generally a joking phase by business owners in response to over taxation, regulation and lax immigration rules.

    thats so odd! I never heard that! ( I wouldnt have)

    in boston we called CAMBRIDGE the PRC peoples republic cambridge as its very liberal and has harvard MIT etc
