    Uh, I guess wait a year and buy the F430, because unlike a Porsche or an Audi at least a Ferrari will appreciate in the long term due to the collectors market?

    And picked up one of these the other day for good measure.

    Thanks for the response. I thought of that too, but it probably won't appreciate assuming it goes the way of the 360 Modena, which can be had for under $60K today.

    I had a SouthOrd lockpick set and some practice locks. It's an amazing feeling when you first successfully pull off picking a lock open. I broke one of the rakes and got it stuck inside a lock once, though. Not amazingly durable but will get the job done for a while I suppose.

    Oh, and in case someone has missed it in the past 16 years, Duke Nukem 3D is also currently available on GOG.com for free. Don't forget to get the Duke Nukem 3D High Resolution Pack while you're at it, and you'll get a game that's 1,000,000,000 x more enjoyable than DNF.

    That and a bunch of accessories to go with it, like a cheapo tripod, a new bag, and a 35mm prime lens.

    hell even if you already own it on disc you might as well get it for free from gog... just for the convenience of not having to figure out where you put the disc if you ever want to install it

    Also because all the dosbox work is done for you, instead of having to sperg around with mounting the disk drive.

    i actually like doing that dosbox work manually... it's like recreating those memories of when i first played the game (i actually just clicked **** in the start menu since i had windows 95)

    Several Massassians recommended that I get an Xbox 360 controller for cross-platform, though primarily Linux gaming awhile back but I've been busy & just now got around to it. I must say that the advice was accurate--this is a nice controller & is serving my needs quite well.

    A bit late, but I ended up upgrading my phone right before Christmas to a Razr Maxx fo free. My Incredible 2 refused to make any sounds, so I upgraded, after driving around to every ****ing Verizon store in my town, only to walk into Best Buy Mobile in the mall to kill time. Not only did they have a ridiculous selection of phones, but they actually had older phones for cheap/free.

    Every other Verizon store only had Galaxy S3's in stock, or iPhone 5's.
    I had a blog. It sucked.

    Skyrim on a Steam Sale.
    Prime Voyager Ultra Magnus, who wields a stormy hammer.
    Prime Voyager Bulkhead, who is delightfully chuffty.
    Revoltech Spiderman, who is wonderful in so many ways.
    Prime Deluxe Dark Energon Knockout, who has such a crazy color scheme I couldn't say no from the moment I saw him.
    SH Figuarts Perfect Cell, the ultimate being, who tickles my nostalgia bone so pleasingly.
    And then...
    Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Vortex, who I'm not so crazy about, but I can tolerate him, given what he does...
    Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Brawl, who I like a bit more than his brother, but still isn't really the reason I bought them...
    Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Onslaught, who caps off my Fall of Cybertron combaticons purchases for the month, but not for good. If you've played Fall of Cybertron (or remember the original Transformers toys/cartoon) you might remember that the Combaticons are a combiner team, who can schlupp together to form Bruticus, who looks terrible in the stock photography. I'm just two members away from completing the team, can't wait.

    What's really great is how it enables you to just never worry about RAM usage, ever. I have 32 GB (the max for my system) and it means my girlfriend and I can both have open desktop sessions in Windows with like 8000 tabs left open in chrome, Visual Studio, Photoshop, Illustrator and I still have 20 GB left to play video games. It just makes it a non-issue, which is worth it for how cheap it is.

    Other than After Effects, which will eat all the RAM you have and more, I'm in the same situation with only 16GB. The price actually isn't terribly cheap beyond that (Especially at the sizes needed to get 64GB).

    640k should be enough for anyone.

    I held and used a 3ds XL in the past month briefly and I have to say, it's comfortable. The matte-finish feels nice, the build appears sturdy (including the buttons) and the screens are good. Well-made I think, but I'm not sure if I would invest in one for myself personally.

    I agree. Love the matte finish, build is definitely sturdier (no wobbly hinges), screen is almost too big since res stays the same. Price point kind of sucks, but I sold my 3DS at Gamestop for $80 and got the 3DS XL for $100, which I then gave to a friend. Only game I remotely liked was Mario Kart but even that got old.

    Well if it works don't fix it, but that can't possibly be healthy in the long term.
    I bought Far Cry 3, a new backpack, and Apple Earpods today.
