What's New?

My vice director send me a friend request on facebook. I can’t shitpost anymore :sob:

Then there is a coworker who seems to be hitting on me. From one part I’m happy there is someone interested in me and finally some one much older than me, but from the other part I’m not really that happy because it’s a man.

I can’t stop thinking about The Millenium Clock. It was built in the year 2000 for the National Museum of Scotland, and it is about the atrocities of the 20th century. It has figures of Hitler and Stalin hidden in it, and 12 figures each suffering a different brutality to represent crimes of humanity for each calender month. The spire has a woman holding a dead body at the top.

It is certainly one of the most horrifying things to watch in person. I saw it first as a kid and it has always stuck with me.

So I guess I can confirm now that the pretty well known act is >BEAK. That’s a band featuring Geoff Barrow who is also a member of Portishead and latterly is known for his work as a film composer on stuff like Ex Machina and Annihilation. Pretty stoked to have them onboard.

And then there’s us making an absolute racket lololol.

As of yesterday I am out on placement with the District Nurse team. This is the first of six placements I will get over the next three years of my degree. The last four months has been just theory based, apart from one day in the clinical skills lab so it is great to be out spending time with patients.

Have already witnessed one death so far. Assisted with changing the dressings on legs wounds and seen plenty of other bits and pieces. Tomorrow I get to start on delivering insulin injections for diabetic patients!

Mentioned about a year ago in January that my computer had an overheating problem. Its starting to get really irritating now.

Normally the computer sits at around 47-43 degrees Celsius with no windows or programs open.

While waiting in the small window that pops up when you start Hitman on steam, it heated up to around 55 degrees Celsius. Just from a small window that says “Play, Options, Exit”.

Then once I start the actual application, it can go anywhere from 60-70 degrees. It sometimes skyrockets to 80 degrees and then quickly goes back to 60-70.


When I was testing the temperatures while playing Hitman, I did a test to see how hot my computer got while loading in a mission for the first time.

As soon as I pressed the Play button on Holiday Hoarders, the temperatures went from 60-70 to 70-90. Just after 1 or 2 seconds of just being in the loading screen. I hadn’t started any missions beforehand, all I did was pick a loadout and load in.


The biggest issue I have is when you actually play the mission. Just 2 minutes - 5 minutes in the computer sits at around 85 to 95 degrees. This is a big problem considering that longer playthroughs (challenges, kill everyones, etc.) means that if I don’t save every 30 seconds, I’m going to lose progress after the last autosave because either the game crashes or my PC crashes.

I’ve started looking at questions about the laptop and it seems some people are annoyed as well. There’s not much you can do.

I’ve already:

  • Turned every setting in Hitman to the lowest (and turned off V-Sync)
  • Limited my FPS to 60
  • Gotten a cooling pad
  • Changed the Maximum Processor state to 50%
  • Changed Super Sampling from 1.00 to 0.90

I’m considering turning it back in for repair or even refund it. After almost a year of dealing with overheating, it’s gotten way too annoying and its really frustrating to try and play a game where only a few minutes after starting up the game and playing the computer crashes.

This is one of the reasons for not buying gaming laptops, if you search google about gaming laptop overheating, you will see it’s not just the brand you got, but gaming laptops from all brands have this issue, in my opinion laptop for gaming is general a bad idea, because of poor cooling and hard to upgrade hardware.

A usual computer with the same specs as such a laptop is usually less expensive in my experience. Even more if you buy it in parts.

1 coworker! Just one coworker took me to accept on facebook now everyone is sending me friend requests :rage:
I like to have on facebook only people that I know and every year at my job majority of the staff changes. So I end up with folks on social media that I will never see again in my life.

Oh well… If anyone from you here want’s to add me on facebook, you can tipe badeaguard in the search bar and I should be the only one. I will be glad to have some of you there.

Hey Europe / Norway dudes,

What’s up with this?

Only briefly read up on it recently.

I don’t know it’s not much info about this case in norwegian news, only that she is married to one of the richest men here in Norway (I don’t know who that is), she have been missing for 10 weeks and now the police goes out to the media about ransom demand, they haven’t heard from her or any other life signs, so maybe the police think she is dead at this point? Because the persons behind the ransom demand said not tell the police, but since police is going out with this, maybe they don’t think she is alive anymore?

Kidnapping cases like this is rare here in Norway.

First time I’ve ever recognized a user across forums.

Seeing people you know from other places on forums is always cool. It’s a great way to strengthen friendships.

I ran into @Spods on Hentai Zaibatsu.com what musta been around 2 years ago now? That shit was hilarious. We’ve been trading all the latest doujinshis and tentacle vids ever since! I would consider it a turning point in our friendship
